[8.2.3.1] LibreELEC 8.2 for S905/S905X

  • Hi, sorry my English, I look for a box with a very good quality constructive, and a good remote control to use with libreelec, which one is the best ? I have a shared folder in samba where I have all the video files, the paid services like netflix do not interest me, the maximum budget is 100-120 euro.

  • ODROID C2, MINIX U1, WeTek Play2, WeTek Hub, MECOOL M8S Pro+ and a bunch of S905 / S905X Beelinks + the whole Zombie Army of other AMLogic S905 / S905X clones sold under different Brand names and configs.


    Do NOT buy an AMLogic S912 box.


    Have I missed any of them ?

    Khadas VIM? :)

    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

  • My power light turns blue when I first power on the device (Beelink Mini MX) but then quickly changes back to red and stays on red. I am using 8.1.6. When using 8.0.2 versions it didn't do that.

  • Can you personally suggest a box please ?

    c'mon man, It's all a matter of personal choice. Don't someone to put their head on the block suggesting a device that will be the best choice in the opinion of another. One man's perfect is another man's headache, when it comes to these Amlogic devices (especially the lower to mid price ranged one's) :/

  • Hi, I have a s905x amlogic tv box with dual boot (android + Libreelec 8.16).


    Can I play 4k 10bit video in HDR Mode with Libreelec? I've tried and my tv switch to HDR mode.


    Or is better through android os ? Thank You

    Hi, I understand, everyone chooses the device according to your needs, my friend wrxtasy has helped me so much, thank you, the features I'm looking for are these:


    - Main use libreelec


    - Good quality construction


    - Good remote control


    - Paid services like netflix do not interest me


    - Budget 100-120 euros


    I thought it would be better to take a s905x or s905d cpu that have the hdr vp9 support, i read that the s905x devices do not have the gigabit port, the devices with the s905x are very peculiar, with the s905d there is only the MECOOL KI PRO TV

  • you don`t need to spend that much money.

    For what you want any 905(x)(d)(w? kszaq) will be enough. 1 GB is enough. 100 Mbit is enough.

    You should buy your remote separately - most to all remotes that come with these cheap boxes are junk. Or - that`s what I(`d) do - use your smartphone/tablet as remote.

    Sorry, I did not understand if the post is addressed to me, the s905w is almost identical to 905: Budget AMLogic S905/S905X/S912 Media Player Options, the 905w does not have the support hdr vp9, i am the remote I am going to take minix A2 lite.

  • The MeCool M8S Pro Plus for less than $40 US is the best Amlogic S905X box on the market now. This MeCool M8S Plus is about as close to perfection as you can get.


    hahaha.. it doesn't have optical output so I semi-regret buying one as I cannot connect it to my AVR.

    yep - addressed you. Are you sure about the 905w? The only information I could find is, that it`s limited to 4k30Hz (instead of 60Hz) - nothing to worry about. Where did you read, that it has no vp9/hdr?


    The A2 lite is great - I have three of these (you cant power on your box with it though).


    I`d like to know if the 905w boxes work with kszaqs builds - more and more of this things pop up everywhere and they are cheap. I did not see anyone mentioning em here.

  • If you used search you'd find my statement regarding S905W. It will be supported if Amlogic releases source code for it.

    Hi, I read the information in the post I mentioned in the link: Budget AMLogic S905/S905X/S912 Media Player Options


    "S905W = S905 minus the Gigabit Ethernet and limited to 4K @ 30fps only. There is no HDR or VP9 Profile 2 hardware decoding.


    Looks pretty useless. "


    As the A2 lite is great, it is recommended by everyone.


    Are you looking for a box to use with libreelec ? What did you choose ? What is the best android box with the s905x ? I also recommended the Qbox
