G7 Max s905x4 1gbit 4gigs mem basic config info

This may be of some help for some one out there as well; having struggled with a couple of config options from the standard s905x4 gbit 4GB dtb config.
first off, the remote control needs to be updated with the custom .toml file

ssh root@my-g7-max-ip-address

vi /storage/g7_max_smart_tv.toml
[[protocols]]
name = “G7 Max Smart TV Box”
protocol = “nec”
variant = “necx”
[protocols.scancodes]
0x9f70a = “KEY_POWER”
0x9f700 = “KEY_UP”
0x9f703 = “KEY_LEFT”
0x9f701 = “KEY_DOWN”
0x9f702 = “KEY_RIGHT”
0x9f71f = “KEY_OK”
0x9f71c = “KEY_BACK”
0x9f780 = “KEY_MENU”
0x9f70c = “KEY_HOME”
0x9f758 = “KEY_VOLUMEUP”
0x9f75d = “KEY_VOLUMEDOWN”
0x9f70d = “KEY_MUTE”
0x9f751 = “KEY_CHANNELUP”
0x9f752 = “KEY_CHANNELDOWN”
0x9f71b = “KEY_INFO”
0x9f71a = “KEY_CONTEXT_MENU”

enable the remote control with
vi /storage/.config/rc_maps.cfg
meson-ir * g7_max_smart_tv.toml

Configuration OpenVFD to display clock, cpu temp, or movie playback time
*Step 1) Install OpenVFD program add on option within Coreelec Repository within Kodi *
Step 2) vi /storage/.config/vfd.conf
# This file must be renamed to vfd.conf and placed in the /storage/.config/ folder.

test vfd with command
systemctl restart openvfd; dmesg | tail -20

reboot

I also need to figure out on board bluetooth controller, this is currently not detected.
