  • H96 PRO Plus KODI 17.3 Android 7.1 Amlogic S912 TV BOX 4K 3GB/32GB 802.11AC WIFI 1000M LAN

    33 quid. Isn't this extremely cheap for the H96 Pro+ ? 32 GB and 3 GB ram. Geekbuying charges $60 or so. Is this for real? And have anyone tried to install the H96 Pro Plus to internal? I can't use SD.


    MOD EDIT: Product Link deleted. Please read forum Rules Above

    That offers ended, usually about £65, so I would say very cheap at £33

  • All boxes support CEC in some level. There are bugs but most of them usable more or less.

  • wrxtasy Hello :) i've just received a mecool m8s pro+ (last stock with kingstone eMMC and no reset button) in which i've install both LibreELEC with SD boot and Android TV rom.

    Just for my Knowledge: what is missing in "stock" Rom that avoid netflix to get 1080p (and maybe) 720p that is added in Android tv rom?

    Thanks

  • I had this box come for someone lately and I was really impressed with the performance, this was a totally debloated android 6.0.

    How did you miss Link #130

    Using corporate logos as an avatar must have taken some thought ?

  • Hi,

    Does anyone have information about new Mini M8S III (3) model? Is it compatible with kszaq LE?
    Appeared recently on Chinese sites, and price is good for the model 2/16GB.

    They claim it is Amlogic S905X.

    Thanks

  • Hi all, this is my box now, a Z69 with 3/32 gig and a S905X chip.


    You can find it on the familiar Chinese sites, I wont post the link :-)


    Box is running fine with LE, latest 8.1.10 build, running from internal memory.

    CEC works fine.
    WIFI not tested, using wired.

    No Giga ethernet unfortunately.

  • In the Odroid C2 under LE, I like how the in built IR receiver just works with a MCE remote. Do any of the boxes mentioned in this thread have a similar inbuilt IR receiver?


    Also, theres a big price difference between, say, a Beelink for $42 and a Minix U1 for $110. Is there something in between with quality components?

  • Partially.

    Using CEC my TV remote is working fine

    How much CEC is reliable on your Beelink MiniMXIII II S905X box? Does it support standby/wake-up? I am looking for a 4k 10bit HDR capable box to replace my old HTPC.

    I have been using only CEC hence the support is mandatory. Maybe my existing Pulse-eight USB CEC adapter can be used with any S905 box?

  • How much CEC is reliable on your Beelink MiniMXIII II S905X box? Does it support standby/wake-up?

    I don´t use standby/wakeup - my Beelink is up 24/7

  • I see. Is it working fine otherwise or have you observed any deficiency in CEC operation on your box?

    CEC is working for me - play/stop/pause etc.

    Don´t need much special key like others 8)
