[8.2.2.3] LibreELEC 8.2 for S912

  • All of my HDMI cables came with cheap boxes working well with 4k HDR content with HD audio.

    No reason to buy more expensive ones.

    Unfortunately I bought some earlier but it was just a waste of money.

    RPI3 1GB, Z4 RK3368 1GB, MINI MX-G 2GB, Mini M8S II (coreelec.org 9.2.1), H96 Pro (coreelec.org 9.2.1), ODORID N2 (coreelec.org 9.2.1), VIM3 PRO (coreelec.org 9.2.1), Beelink GT King (coreelec.org 9.2.1), Denon AVR-X2600H, LG 60SJ810V

  • I ordered some of these:- AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI 2.0 Cable - 1.8m / 6 Feet (2-Pack) (Latest Standard) Supports Ethernet, 3D, Audio Return.

    Are these good enough??

    I think so - but don´t know - I bought other cables

  • Generally - not personally You - a lot of users using cheap cables - many of them don´t know about the bad quality.

    I tested ATV box from a friend - working perfect with my 15€ HDMI cable from amazon store connected @AVR

    And I use XBMC/KODI many years too - boxee, raspberry pi 1, 2 and 3 - hifiberry etc.

    I understand, that would be must first suggestion as well.
    As for ATV, it might be something between Apple and Samsung way of doing things and problems appear only if they meet. Hard to tell, I've found cheap U9, so I'll report my results once I test it.

    Yes I've heard High Speed Amazon Basics ones are fine. MonoPrice also sell reasonably priced Premium Certified cables too.


    I will repeat this again: even tho cables when used with other non HDR boxes may have worked fine in the past, so far as handshaking and reliability is concerned, once you start using them with HDR capable media players, that can transport more data over HDMI. Reliability and handshaking problems may occur. Especially the longer the HDMI cable run gets.

    I am just leaving my KM8 Pro on 24/7 at the moment as I couldn't figure out how to sleep/wake the device using this LibreELEC build.

  • How are people powering on/off their device?



    1. Menu - Power - Shutdown

    2. Press power off button on remote

    3. Press box power button

    4. ssh command

    5. switch off 220 volt power strip

    6. remove power cable from box

    How much additional clarification do you need with the word "DISCONTINUED" in the first post?

    MECOOL KIII Pro (S912)

    Fresh install and then restore the data from a backup is possible or not recommended?


    I mean i would have many addons after the daily use of Kodi which i would prefer to not install and configure again. :)

    Many addons - could(would) be many problems after upgrade

  • Should I use a 32GB UH1 Samsung evo SD card or a 64GB UH3 Samsung evo plus one on the M8S Pro L?

    Or should I just plain install it on the emmc?

    Which one would you say is gonna give me more responsiveness?

  • Is it possible to set resolution to 720 ? I only have 1080 and 2160 in the interface. I would rather set it to 720 and let my tv upscale from 720 to 2160 for videos that aren't in 1080 or 2160.

  • Resolution is automatically switched to match movie, so you can set interface resolution to your TVs' native and movies will still be upscaled by TV, not the BOX.

    In current builds resolutions other than 1920x1080 and 4K are not supported on S912 - read the first post, please!
