    Same results apply to yesterday's s905x2 build with the rmii dtb that is now reincluded. Is the remote problem difficult to fix? Perhaps an easier wake-on-LAN function exists that could be implemented?


    Thx!

    X96 Max test with new g12 build.

    - S905X2/u211 SOC

    - G12A chipset

    - 10/100mbit NIC

    - No bluetooth module

    - 2gb/16gb version

    - 2,4ghz wifi b/g/n

    DTB: meson-g12a-x96-max-rmii.dtb (the one from the July 1st build as later ones don't seem to hold the rmii one)


    Results:

    - Boots

    - Ethernet working, gets IP through DHCP

    - Stock remote works if already on

    - HDMI audio output present / 5.1 possible through spdif passthrough over stereo

    - No mutichannel PCM (always outputs stereo if passthrough disabled)

    - HEVC crahes (known issue)

    - No WiFi

    - Doesn't wake from power off or suspended mode from remote press

    Hey there!


    I really didn't do anything special I think... I always start with updating the kernel and system manually and if the desired functionality fails I try a fresh flash, letting it resize and format. I always use the latest rmii dtb (just ignore my rudeness, because you seem to know what you're talking about, but your putting the path to the dtb in the .ini right, and not placing the dtb at the root... As some builds require this)


    Ethernet shows up in either case (manual update or clean install). I know of no other way to check your NIC but opening the box and actually checking the writing on the chip...


    Do you not get a connection or doesn't anything even show up in the first connection wizard?


    Hope you can sort it out! Gonna try today's build in a couple of hours!

    - HEVC crahes (known issue)

    - No WiFi

    - Doesn't wake from power off or suspended mode from remote press

    If anyone managed to get a Kodi 18 LibreELEC image to boot on their S905W box, please be kind enough to share that image and maybe even a tutorial on how to do it because maybe I'm doing it wrong. :)

    The s905w has been well suppported for quite a while now, but more so at the coreelec branch. Perhaps give those builds a try!

    Same results apply to today's build (June 18th).

    I seem to be having inconsistent troubles installing the widevine CDM on the s905x2 g12a. Using inputstreamhelper the system downloads the image, then tries unpacking/installing it, but just locks up after a while. I had it working at one point, but forgot the combination i was using. Could somebody advise on which combination of...


    - s905x2 g12 image date

    - inputstream adaptive version

    - aarch64 or ARM


    ...might work?

    Great progress so far!
