Because I could rarely use the test images this thread is about, I tried the most recent nightly from CoreELEC on my 905x2 X96 max 2G/16G box this morning.
I am very pleasantly surprised at the result ...... particularly as this is the first nightly to support this box ....
wireless is not presently working
the SD card will not boot from SD slot but can be booted from SD to USB adapter in the USB3 slot
For my use case ...... watching 1080 Live TV and recorded video etc .... it is actually functional now!
I use it to view live TV from a server running tvheadend, and the stored videos/movies on several devices.
What a surprise! I am also impressed with the display quality of this box when compared to others I have used and tried, at or near the same price point.
I hope this is seen for what it is ..... not a promotional thing for CE but something that might help others with problems using their x96 Max boxes at the present time.
