Eve TV is really good idea.
Eve is company/comunity that likes good sound quality (four speakers - in V).
Eve is company/comunity that likes excellent display quality (Sharp display with best performance - in V).
Eve is company/comunity that makes right decisions about ports and housing (tounderbolt and great design - present in V).
In my opinion Eve TV has a huge potention to make something really different. Something that make a sense.
The smart TV market would need a punch for sure, but i think the largest gap is the sw, you can have a super spec tv, but it is useless with current smart TV OS (implementations) and apps…
I mean Netflix usually works everywhere, but prime, hbo go? (i hate if i have to cast from PC to smart TV as there is no app or the app is not working)… and is there any decent browser optimized for TV layout ?
As for HW, my priority is:
good screen - and i dont mean 4k HDR etc, but quality - no backlight bleeding, colors
CPU with enough power, enough RAM
RC with keyboard, touchpad
upgradable 2nd sat tuner (record on 1, watch tv on the 2nd)
ports - you dont need analog anymore, so latest HDMI, USB 3.1, GB ethernet, wifi, BT
I know it’s not baked in to any TV, but Edge running on my Xbox One S is actually a fairly pleasant experience. The only sucky thing is typing, but that’s more to do with the hardware available than the design of the browser.
