Pivos XIOS XS Media Player Review

A little over a year ago we took a look at Pivos’s XIOS DS Media Player. This was Pivos’s first media player and while it was a great machine, it was more of a DIY system as its more or less an Android box that you had to customize yourself. The newer Pivos XIOS XS has its own TOFU Media Center GUI, which is a Pivos-customized version of XBMC that runs on Android 4.2.2. This makes the XIOS XS more user-friendly as you can pretty much boot it up and be ready to go, much like the other major media / streaming players out there. Let’s take a look…

Special thanks to Pivos for providing us with the XIOS XS Media Player to review.


The Pivos XIOS XS comes in a small box. On the front there is a XIOS XS logo and towards the bottom right there is a little powered by TOFU emblem.

Flipping the box over it gives us a rundown of the specifications of the device and all of its connections.
