Amlogic S905X3, S905Y3, S905D3 thread

The latest nightbuild that I am testing works on “Bqeel Y8 MAX”, unfortunately the remote control does not work by default, it must be configured.
This is an example that I made working, to be improved for sure.

Hi there. New to Coreelec - have some programming experience here and there.

Can someone please confirm if I can use the latest stable image for a A95X F3 air box?
The seller in Taobao claims it’s a Amlogic S905x3 device with 2 or 4GB of DDR3 Ram and 16/32/64GB of E-MMC.

I’m looking to use this box as the base to develop my own flavour of Kodi with specific content online.

You can use it but only you will know if it works when you get it.

I’m happy for you.

Doesn’t work with stable, only nightlies right now.

This is my personal report, if it can be useful, with the last nightbuild installed on a “Tictid TX6 Plus”, identical to the HK1 X3, the hardware is the same, only the customization of Android 9 changes, there are many clones with different brands but the same hardware.
All this tvboxes are compatible with the device “sm1_s905x3_4g_1gbit.dtb”.
All work fine, except the bluetooth that doesn’t work, the driver in CoreELE is missing?
I also noticed that at reboot the remote works well, it is very reactive, after a few minutes a rather boring lag takes over.
About bluetooth:

Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/rtl8822b_bt-firmware.service; static; vendor preset: disabled)

Thank you for answers :slight_smile:

For the S905x3 devices you want to use the Amlogic-ng builds. So option 1.

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:

CoreELEC:~ # systemctl start bluetooth
CoreELEC:~ # bluetoothctl

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?

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:
