    I have been running your zap2epg for a week or so now, and it is working fantastic. I have about 35 OTA channels, and it doesn't take long to populate the guide with 14 days of guide data, with all the metadata selected. Been using your sd2xmltv version for along time, but guess I will make the switch permanent now.

    Yes, you can install LibreELEC without a reset button.

    Yes, but I sure would like to hear from some Diamond A9 (S912) owner testimonials, especially when running on LE.

    Agreed, at that price, I would be very skeptical about purchasing it. I was kind of alluding to the fact, that if it seems to be too good to be true, it probably isn't.

    Any Diamond A9 (S912) owners here can chime in how is the performance of LibreELEC on your device? I am planning to grab one unit of a Diamond A9 (S912) from GeekBuying to run LibreELEC. FYI, my current MXQ Pro (S905) works flawlessly with LibreELEC.

    Those are some very good specs for that very low price.

    The Mecool Pro + is NOT a S912, it is an Amlogic S905x. You need the correct file and the correct device tree.

    Use Etcher for burning your microSD card. Maybe this video will help.

    The Mecool M8S Pro L for less than $60US is a very nice box that plays Netflix in 1080P and YouTube in 4k. libreELEC is easy to install and works fantastic.

    zmokkie, why do you want to limit it to the 905x boxes? Yes, the Amlogic S912 are a little more $$, but they are sooooo much faster.


    Out of more that two dozen boxes I have purchased in the last 4 or 5 years, the Mecool M8S Pro L, is/was the best box by far that I have every used. I even have an expensive Zidoo X9S, that is collecting dust, because I prefer to use my Mecools. I also have the Mecool M8S Pro PLUS (S905x), and Mecool M8S Pro.


    I am running LibreELEC on my Mecool M8S Pro (S912), and use it as my tvheadend and Emby servers.

    Hi, i have read a few stories about boxes (mecool m8s pro, mini m8s ii) being sold recently with different hardware than before. What is now the best bang for buck box? I have the x96, mini m8s ii and the beelink mini mxiii (all s905x) and all the boxes work perfect with libreelec. But I bought the boxes a time ago and I am afraid that if I buy another one (I want to give my dad and sister a kodi box) I get different hardware with a lot of issues.

    You are correct there, with these boxes, you never know what you will get. They are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you will get........ haha
