The Minix Neo G4 needs an (included) AC adapter which provides 5V 3A power, but the Android Mini PC itself uses less than 1A to operate.

    Are you sure the NEO G4 has bluetooth support? I don’t believe that is correct but I am not positive.

    My understanding is that early in the pre-release, a spec was released that showed in had bluetooth but that was an error which has caused some on-going confusion.

    I would love to know if it can support bluetooth via an attached USB dongle.

    My wife wants our TV to work like the one in the movie, “Frank and Robot.” Deal with phone calls, Skype video, full internet connectivity, and still be a full blown TV.

    Send me an e-mail if you have a solution – TV takes four HDMI connections, so that’s not a problem.
