Hi guys. I have a cheap S912 box (Tanix TX92).
I have noticed that it does not cope very well with high res movies with Dolby Atmos audio. After a while the movie starts to stutter until it continues to play with anu audio. It can be minutes and sometimes seconds
To be honest, I am not really suprised,given the fact that these are dirt cheap china boxes, but my Minix U9-H is holding up fine.
I made a simple search in the forum for for instance “stuttering”, but didn’t find anything. I believe that the experienced folks here already have a clue, but I am very interested in knowing where the bottleneck might be.
Is it a bad heat sink (66 degrees C)?
Is it a bad network (measured avg speed of 850 mbps with iperf3)?
Is it due to bad HW (S912 works good in the Minix)?
Is it memory issues (It is stated that it have 3 gb of RAM, but who knows, for sure)?
I can provide this log file, it was too big to upload, so I had to cut a bit in it.
Some interesting parts is:
