[8.2.2.3] LibreELEC 8.2 for S912

  • I guess I'll give U9 a try as those less known brand products seem to be hit-and-miss.

    trying to avoid buying another. Only bought this one because I had read that resolution/frame rate switching and Passthrough works on this box!

    There is so much different hardware with same label :(

    Cheap nand/emmc chips - unsupported wlan chips - fake ram - it´s a mess.

    A lot of amlogic boxes are only a piece of crap :thumbdown:

  • U9 is expensive.

    Whats about a S905X box ?

    My daily boxes are S905X, Amazon Fire and soon Apple TV 4k. I bought my S912 just for playing around

    I know, I've actually tested ATV 4K but I've had some handshake issues (signal drops, not detecting 4K display from time to time) with it and people reported CEC issues + I don't like it for other Apple related reasons.
    I'm trying to avoid S905X because of lack of 1Gbit connection. I might wait for S905D based Meecool KI to be in stock locally again.

  • Limited by USB 2.0 ;) Have you tested effective speed?

    Yes - tested using iperf -> 250-300 MBits/sec

    Practice - jellfish 140 MBit file is playing smooth - 4k hdr videos playing smooth

  • How did you check? trying to work out why It doesn't work for me and embrion.

    If i play a video with DTS audio -> display of my AVR shows DTS

    If i play a video with dolby digital audio -> display of my AVR shows Dolby Digital

    If i play a video with atmos audio -> display of my AVR shows Atmos

    If i play a DTS audio file -> display of my AVR shows DTS

    👍👍👍👍

    Now, what box have you got?

  • How important is the usb/micro SD quality? I've been using like a 5 year old or more 8gb SanDisk Cruz usb and everything seems to be working fine. However I had a gift card so I bought a 32gb SanDisk ultra microSD HC with speeds up to 98MB/s. Just wondering if I even actually need it, what it would improve?

    Any insight into what I asked a couple pages back?

  • going back to being helpful again. Thankyou.


    Probably my fault for having a 'badly configured' phone.



    Edit...


    True, had to press menu, tick 'request desktop site'.


    Then scroll to your sig and find that you've got a Vorke Z6.


    Thanks again.

  • Any insight into what I asked a couple pages back?

    It depends on the box, some cardreaders are slow

    I only use samsung/sandisk pro cards - benefit is a smooth gui and I never noticed buffering issues.


    I checked against install on NAND - I my case no difference.


    Some people reported installing on NAND is the only way to get a good performance - I don´t believe.


    But .... what do You expect using Your new and fast SD ?

    Why didn´t You just try it ?

  • It was an impulse buy, if there's no benefit I would return it. I'd be using it in a T95R Pro 2gb with gigabit ethernet.. Perhaps it would make scrolling through movies snappier.
