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)
Tanix TX3 MAX
X96 MAX PLUS
MXQ PRO QUICKPLAY (1GB + 8GB)
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.
I have a X96 Max+ Q2. The latest CoreELEC and EmuELEC are working, including sound, bt, wifi, ethernet, DS3. I haven’t tried the remote controller.
Mind that there are at least 4 variations for X96 Max+, including Max Plus, Max Plus2, Max Plus Q1, Max Plus Q2. More details can be found on Russian website 4pda.ru.
There’s your answer, the infra red receiver from the box and the remote are not communicating with each other. Do you have another remote? The first ‘test’ always should be to see if the remote turns on the box.
Basically none of these options exist on the x96mini. It does have a IR Protocol Type setting though. Switching through all of them seems to have no effect, but maybe it needs to be rebooted to have an effect? Edit: Also tried rebooting with “NEC” and “NEC Legacy” but no effect
That’s what you are looking for. Try every option there and reboot after each change. Right now it looks like the IR onboard receiver is not recognizing the signal from the remote. Hopefully, by switching through protocols, you might find one that helps the receiver recognize the remote signals. If the system becomes unstable or unusable, just write a new boot media. It only takes a minute or two.
