Anyone has these boxes with Coreelec?

Hello, I’m in a process of buying a tv box which I will use for Coreelec and watching movies from an external hard drive, I don’t need it for anything else. Just a simple plug and play.

I found these near my location:

Tanix tx3 mini S905W (2GB RAM + 16GB ROM)
X96 mini
Tanix TX3 MAX
TX6 mini
M10 Pro

Does anyone have any of these boxes and can confirm that Coreelec is working on one of them without any problems like remote not working, complicated installation, crashing… the best scenario would be to have Coreelec installed on SD card like I had Libreelec till now.

If anyone has any of these players and it is working great with Coreelec can you just reply with the model you have, what amlogic (example S905W), is the remote working normally, do you have any problems and what was the process of the installation (example made the SD card, insert it, pressed reset button and plugged in the power cable).


I have a X96 Max + with 19.1 Leia (legacy) installed to SD card. Some addons aren’t working with the Matrix version. Chip is S905X3. Installation process is the same as LE. Burn image, press reset button etc. There is an installation guide on this forum, there is also a guide & a repo for remotes.
Apparently, there are temp issues with this device, but my temps don’t get so high that it causes a problem.
I found the inbuilt blue tooth didn’t work reliably, so I bought a dongle.

Confirming CE 9.2.7 and Matrix are both working without issues but for suspend. CE can be run on both from SD Card, USB Flash drive and eMMC. Installation process: toothpick or “reboot update” from console. For Matrix, many 3rd party addons are still unsupported.

I’m in same boat looking for a box but I’m considering its working conditions on more topics such as 4k, HDR, Tone mapping, Upscaling from 720p/1080p to 4k, HD audio etc. Please comment on those in the list.

What does this mean?
