You can be rest assured that media content is safely stored on the NEO X8-H with its built-in power management system and flash memory controller.

AirPin Pro

AirPin Pro is a great application that offers Apple iOS devices compatibility with MINIX media hubs. AirPin Pro interfaces with the AirPlay feature on iOS devices, allowing users to stream any audio or video content from an iPhone, iPad or iTunes onto the TV. There is no need to install anything, so long as the MINIX media hub and iOS device are using the same Wi-Fi connection. Users simply activate the AirPlay feature on the iOS device when playing media content. Another benefit to AirPin Pro is the ability to mirror the image from the iOS device to the TV.
