    The 1g in the dtb refers to gigabit LAN.

    Try all for gxbb.

    Remote can be configured in LE and CE by ir keytable

    Have a look inside the folder rc_keymaps for a how-to. You need the right Scancodes and then the remote will work.

    you can always lock into the logs - there is even a dmesg. And if your connection is unstable, than a USB device could help.

    Or you simply go throught different dtb files until you find one for gxbb which allows stable network connection.

    For this tests I would use a SD card or USB stick.

    For repairing your internal storage I already said: find the right android to get back you original u boot

    CE 9.2.7 will run fine on a S905. For Kodi 19 there is no build from CE.
    chewitt and have an alpha version of LE, but this is far from usable at the moment for your usecase. If you are using only youtube (and nothing else, it should work). But youtube runs on CE as well. Only downside is, that it is based on Kodi 18.9 and will stay there.

    for the S905x one and a m ale usb a to a cable (usb burning tool from amlogic) or with a burn card you could try to install an androidtv based ROM to internal.

    I am using the builds from aidan at xda-developers

    Or you can find the orignal android image of this device to get everything back.

    Cross-grade did not work from cvh version. But I installed it new.

    HD channels switch is better than on official - SD still does not work.

    HD resolution is 1280 x 720 and is decoded in hardware with: ff-h264_v4l2m2m-drm_prime, drm_prime

    SD resolution is720x576 and is decoded in hardware with: ff-mpeg2_v4l2m2m-drm_prime

    Booth @25 FPS

    Kodi Log

    SD channels / view in log are after

    INFO <general>: CDVDVideoCodecDRMPRIME::Open - using decoder V4L2 mem2mem MPEG2

    Does this makes any sense to you - or should I get any other information?

    EDIT: youtube works fine, regardless of the resolution

    Did anyone managed to watch SD TV with these images?

    I tried the p200 gxbb Version from 11.04 on a Beelink M18.

    In TvHeadend HD channels are fine - even switching between them.

    Amazon Prime Plugin works as well.

    But for SD channel I get a green screen. Is it somewhere possible to define to use mpeg2 software decoding instead of hardware? Maybe it would work then. CPU wise the CPU should be fast enough.

    I the Windows Builds there were some options to decide which codes is handled in hardware and which in software. On Arm I have not seen this - maybe because it is not controllable?

    Hi balbes150 finally I was able to try all the gxbb DTBs for my Beelink M18.

    I tried your build from 14.04 in the ARMv8.arm Version

    Wifi is working with the wetek play 2 version (ethernet as well).

    Is there a important difference from an end user perspektive in ARM and aarch64 (I know this is the register stuff from the CPU).

    I am asking because video is not working well in TVHeadend. The first HD channel is somehow OK, but changing channels do not work. Sometimes even the switch to fullscreen gives a problem. dark grey screen for video.

    If someone is interested I could upload the remote configuration.


    Hello, I have tried yesterday your build for S905 and chewitts one.

    My box is a Beelink M18. I wanted to try whats the difference, as the official one is unable to play Mpeg2 content.

    Your Version does not have working Wifi, as the adapter does not show. And therefore I could not test Tvheadens, which is the main usage of this box.

    Is there a difference in the DTB files?

    I used on booth versions the meson-gxbb-p200.dtb

    back in the days with Libreelec 8.2 I used gxbb_p200_2G_1Gbit_OTG_Port.dtb

    chewitt thx

    I noticed one bug on the kvim 1.

    If there is no hdmi cable connected, or You use a hdmi switch with a different active input then the kvim1,the device don't boot.

    It hangs on the first line of the Bootlogo saying it's build forever. Even if hdmi is connected again.

    Coreelec 9.2.5 from SD boots fine without display.

    I have checked this with a ping to the machine and on coreelec a vnc plug-in.

    Sadly I have no log from the bootprocess, can't find my serial console cables.

    But I could try, it should write to the tx pins?
