Hello:

I’m using: CoreELEC nightly_20200112 (Amlogic-ng.arm) for my TV-Box: X96 Max+ (S905X3) and it seems that Bluetooth (BT) is not working at all.

Report accesing via SSH with Putty:

Is the BT of TV-Box X96 Max+ (S905X3) working for other users?

Kind regards

Hello…I want to have coreelec on internal storage…I read some themes.I found “installtointernal” command. It is dangerous for device ?

Ceemmc. is the tool.

Sorry for the cross post…

I’ve got the X96Air S905X3 box - how long should it take for the Coreelec logo to appear after using the toothpick method?

64GB MicroSD card - using sm1_s905x3_4g_1gbit.dtb device tree

Picture of reset button.
For me i find it easy to press the button and then connect the DC power jack release button after 1 second.

There is a TV set-top box VONTAR X96Max Android 9.0, X96 Max_Plus 2, (S905X3), and a simple bluetooth remote, “https://aliexpress.ru/item/32847613864.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.a44833edAOLD4W”. the Problem is that in Android the remote works, but in CoreELEC, it seems to be paired, but it does not work. What can be done.
P.S. Board version: Q5X3_141 V3.0 19351, Firmware version 2019.12…

Sorry, wrong link to the remote: “https://aliexpress.ru/item/32914150431.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.75cc33edlGbpiy

Hello. I just bought a Tanix TX5 Pro S905X3 box off of amazon. Even though amazon says it is sold by Tanix I can’t find any mention of it on there website so it’s likely a generic S905X3. It’s the 4-64 version with gig lan.
Using the generic dtb and bluetooth wifi and lan all work ok. I bought this as I just bought a 4K TV and my U1 being a 905 box did not support HDR. So i bought this to play my HDR files. Unfortunately when I play a file I know is HDR my TV is not recognising it as being HDR.
If I play the same file using Roku Media Player then my TV sees it as HDR. I have tried whitelisting the resolution and I can’t seem to get it to recognise any of them as HDR. Any thoughts or ideas as to what I might try?
Thanks.

And I figured out what the problem was. I had to force HDMI 2.0 for that input. The TV wasn’t auto switching properly. So all in all pretty happy with this box. :slight_smile:

Has anyone seen the S905Y3 in the wild yet?

A post was merged into an existing topic: Nightly builds (NEW)

HDR is working, check your config in box and TV. And since 20200203 nightly, hdr10+ is working too.

You can try another hdmi cable and/or hdmi port in you TV.

Which box for CE in range about 50$, X96 Air or MAGICSEE N5 MAX or something else?

Can somebody explain me how to install the latest Coreelec nightly on the Vontar X96 Max (S905X3).
I think i have to flash the image on my SD-Card correct? And then?
I read something about pressing the reset button that’s hidden inside the audio jack? But when and why do i have to do this?

Also, when something goes wrong, can i just unplug the SD-Card and use the box like before?

plug in card, as you plug in the power cord, press & hold the reset switch,after a few seconds release the reset, it should then boot the device.

If you remove the card,it will boot to android.
