    Thanks in advanced.

    I don"t know what's wrong in my settings.

    I was being sarcastic in reference to your box sizzling.


    Your 100% doing something wrong then I own the TX3 Mini myself and I know for certain it works and multiple other people have confirmed it works also.

    Okay, explain me, why is good LPCM 7.1 output with the dtb for S905X and wrong with dtb for TX3 Mini? Which dtb is good for TX3 mini? I have 4 Amlogic boxes, setup is the same, everything is same only what I change for optimal use is the device tree. My opinion is something wrong with that dtb from your releases page for TX3 mini.

    You need to install fd628 service via add-ons for extra icons, it's only available in 8.90 builds


    Sounds like your box is too hot if it is sizzling

    Not too hot, 53°C and everything is fine except LPCM with that TX3Mini dtb is wrong, with dtb for S905X is good, no sizzling.

    Doesn"t work for me extra icons on TX3 Mini with 8.90 builds. I posted my first impression with that on related topic.

    Tested new build on all S905/X/W boxes, I have issue with Tanix TX3 Mini, regular S905X dtb with 2GB RAM works on Tanix, display shows only "boot" but no issue with LPCM 7.1, changed dtb to this: gxl_p212_2g_tx3mini.dtb, display shows the clock, after installing icon package from repository and rebooting, the display icons appeared strangely, all icons visible, last number was blinking and the LPCM 7.1 was wrong. I prefer Audio output set to 7.1 and passtrough for all audio formats. I"ve tried the other dtb from here: releases/dtb/9.0/ without luck, boot screen stays on TX3 mini. Which is the best dtb for TX3 mini?

    On Neo U1 and M8S Pro+ everything was fine what I tested.

    Thanks

    Works ok, thanks!


    What's the status with the extra icons (play, ethernet, wifi, etc)? Have you made them work yet? Do I need to install a service?

    Doesn"t work a TX3 Mini so far. Tried 8.90.3 and 8.2.3.1, no luck, only the clock is visible (on 8.90.3 is something strange with installed icons) but Multi CH PCM with that dtb is sizzling under original sound, with normal dtb from S905X no issue with sound but display shows "boot".

    dtb is not cause of this

    I forgot something, audio outout is set to 7.1, passtrough is on, every output sounds seems to be good only 7.1 LPCM output is wrong. All S905 devices tested with one SD card , but with different dtb, on Minix and Mecool everything was fine, LPCM 7.1 output is great, on Tanix is something wrong only with Multi CH LPCM, if audio output is set to 2.0 and AC3 transcoding is on, everything is fine, I got Dolby Digital 5.1 but this is not LPCM.

    I will try the Leia build.

    Thanks.

    Updated all S905 boxes, on Neo U1 and on M8S Pro+ everything is fine but on TX3 Mini I found some issues, maybe the dtb is wrong or hardver limitation, for Tanix I use dtb from here and if I watch a movie with Multi CH PCM the sound goes out perfectly, but I hear a constant sizzling sound, for ex. with this sample: LPCM7.1

    Thanks for your work, Tanix display shows the time.

    Powering the box on/off with that remote only works on Android doesn't it? The power button on mine does nothing when pressed running LE on a U9, i might actually put up with the stupid clicky noise it makes when pressing buttons if power on/off worked

    Powering the box on/off works on LE with A2 Lite and U1.

    I have a mecool m8s Pro L, with LibreElec running from an SD card (and using the internal memory for storage)


    The remote.conf seems to be working fine, and the controls are working within libreelec, however I can't power off. I had the harmony learn the original remote 'power' button, but it does nothing when the box is on.

    Maybe I havent followed the insrtuctions well enough?


    I use a Mecool remote from Harmony database (MecoolM8S Pro) and works great, I didn't learned any commands from the original remote.

    Could you please confirm for me - I have an HDMI connection to my AVR from the KODI box using the ALSA HDMI device. I set the audio channels to 7.1 and enable passthrough plus all the options the receiver supports. Are you saying that the audio output channels should be set to 2.0?.

    If you have movies with Multi CH PCM, ex. 7.1, and the audio output is set to 2.0, then there will be no 7.1 Multi CH PCM output in this case.

    I repeat once

    LibreELEC-S912.arm-8.90.8-K.img.gz can not be installed

    Install (create an SD card) LibreELEC-S912.arm-8.90.7-K.img.gz put into your box's SD slot, turn on your box, make primary setup, copy LibreELEC-S912.arm-8.90.8-K.tar to the update folder, reboot your box, that's all.
