The neXTv is a very capable minicomputer that’s small enough to fit in your pocket that plugs in to TV.
It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that
your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games.
It also plays high-definition video.
The neXTv is powerful and inexpensive, allowing you to create a home media centre, internet radio, or
even your own VPN server on the cheap
Using neXTv you can convert any TV in to a Smart TV, even smarter than those from LG and Samsung.
Smarter because neXTv is basically full-fledged computer running Linux, so anything is possible that we
do on regular PC. While those smart TV from Samsung, LG, Sony etc. run a stripped down version of
Linux or proprietary flavor of Linux. They support only a small set of popular apps or plug-ins.
We provide neXTv with prebuild Linux (Debian) OS.
Also neXTv comes with preloaded XBMC media streaming which is an open source free software that
supports tons of plug-ins for Video, Music, and Programs
Good thing about this solution is you can access internet as well as all Indian TV channel content on
demand for free and LIVE news channels like NDTV, Times Now and ET Now for free as well.
You will love YouTube on TV as it provide access to vast amount of Video content on demand.
Hook Up Your neXTv:
neXTv is plug n play type device.
Connect HDMI or RCA cable from TV to neXTv.
Connect keyboard, mouse, Wi-Fi, pen drive, usb hard drive or web cam to usb ports (all optional)
Can connect internet through LAN cable also (optional).
Now connect a power supply and switch it on.
Change your TV channel to HDMI1/2 or AV1/2 accordingly.
And within few seconds you will feel a whole new experience with your dumb TV.
Connecting everything to your neXTv is pretty easy. Start by connecting the HDMI cable from the unit to
your television (or monitor). If you’re using the analog composite video connection instead, connect it to
your television (or monitor) and plug in a set of speakers to the 3.5mm audio jack. If you want your
neXTv to connect to your network and/or the internet, use an Ethernet cable to connect it to your
router or simply connect USB Wi-Fi dongle.
Finally, you need to connect your neXTv with a micro USB power adapter. As mentioned earlier, you
need an adapter that can provide at least 700mA at 5V. Fortunately, you probably already have one.
Many smartphone and tablet chargers utilize micro USB and provide 700mA at 5V (or more). You can
find out by reading the small text on the plug and looking for the output section. (Note: it may say 0.7A
(or higher) instead of 700mA.) When you have a compatible power adapter on hand, connect it to a
micro USB cable and then connect that cable to the micro USB port on your neXTv unit. It’ll turn on all
by itself and you should see it boot for the first time.
