Tanix TX6

  • OK, its working now.

    Maybe it was the VM or the laptop, but after reboot it is how supposed to be.

    Kodi started, so all good.

  • Odd; I can't get this item to boot. I have the Tanix TX6 with 4gb and 64gb eMMC. The odd thing is that in one of the android apps the cpu is identified as Amlogic, not Allwinner. I was told that didn't mean anything, But . . .

    I also prepared the SD card on my Mac using the LibreELEC card writer on a 32g card. Help?!?

  • warchild I flashed above image again and it works for me. Can you try with another TV or monitor first? Then try another HDMI cable. If it still doesn't work, it would be great if you can provide log from serial port.


    I wouldn't recommend overwriting Android just yet. There is pretty high chance it won't work either.

    I'm off for the weekend but I'll give it another try. I did try different cables but did not switch monitors. I'll try that before I go. Deeper after I get back Sunday.


    Had to try before I left. Works on the cheap and cheerful panel! Booted up, no ethernet, no wireless but played a video! Sound might be an issue, hard to say as only had one sample to mess with while I was being yelled at to hurry up . . . Looks very good so far. Makes the box look worthwhile!

  • warchild Can you tell which resolution is used in both cases?

    The panel that worked is 1080p, with some tinkering it was able to get the GUI on a 4k panel but with mainly freezes and little progress. It did nothing going through my Onkyo AVR.

    I'm going to try the 0706 build later later and will report back.

    Thanks.


    This build is much slower but it did boot, and gave some visual clue as what was going on with the card prep (resizing partitions etc)

    On the 1080p Vizio got picture but no sound. GUI was snappy but loading files very sluggish.

    On 4k Samsung got sound, even GUI sound. GUI stayed snappy but now got no picture and decent 2.0 PCM (converted) sound. (Files were mp4 720p, mkv 1080p and an old SD avi. Took forever to load from USB stick or from card.

    Still excited at this end!

  • Some info:

    - reboot issue is due to crash in ethernet driver, probably because phy is not found

    - CEC works if you turn off and back on TV when box is connected

    - eMMC doesn't work for some reason

    - ethernet phy driver is wip (I need to debug why it doesn't work yet)

    - wifi will work when SDIO interface is added to RTW88 driver, which will be next year according to it's developer

  • Ok, so I have working ethernet on Tanix TX6 and as expected, reboot issue is also gone. No test image ATM, because HW video decoding is broken for some reason. Anyway, I'll prepare working test image soon.

    Great news!
