Mecool m8s plus dvb

S905D, 1GB RAM DDR3, 8GB eMMC, DVB-T/T2, no microSD slot, only 2 USB ports.
I use USB for boot CoreELEC.
What dtb.img working right?
I try use gxl_p231_1g_dvb, gxl_p212_1g_g9sx
Android 7.1.2 in box say something about p21x (?!?)
But WiFi (SCi S9082C) not working in CoreELEC 8.95.1

Wifi will not work with this device as there is no open source driver for S9082C.

You can use either Ethernet or a USB WiFi adapter.

I found something that works https://forum.libreelec.tv/thread/5457-s905x-unknown-wlan-chip/?pageNo=5
Wirelles menu in CoreELEC setup enabled. Find wlan0 and wlan1 in ifconfig. But not found any WiFi SSID and can’t connect.
And second question is drivers for AVL6762 DVB-T/T2. TVHeadend does not display this adapter.

This has been covered already, multiple times. We don’t have a source for that Wifi chip, no source code = no driver.
That precompiled module doesn’t work in CE, and therefore it was removed.

Thank You for informations. Ethernet and WiFi dongle works fine.
And AVL6762 for example with TVHeadend?

I can’t answer that. Try the search function in the forum.
But if it’s not working, then there’s probably no driver for the chip in CE either.

AVL6762 is unsupported.

HI dear, i cannot install this firmware on my m8s plus dvb. i have burn the img file with win32 disk image and put usb in the usb and press reset button and pluged the power.
but nothing…
help me with a guide… thanks

@antrace82 did you copy and rename the DTB?

You have to use gxl_p231_1g_m8s_dvb.dtb. Unsupported wifi, bt and install to internal nand flash. DVB-T2/C supported only in dvb-latest-drivers addon.

I have problem with start Android and CE, LE on this box. Only showing boot logo AndroidTV.
Is the device bricked? How fix it? Reset buton not work and i don’t know how reflash. Or where can I find correct IMG file for AMLOGIC usb tool.

I moved your reply here as you posted on wrong topic.
Now i see you have posted here before.
So what has gone wrong ??
If you’ve installed "CE to internal"
It’s Game Over as far as support goes on this forum.

Android Firmware / Amlogic burning tools will not be supported here.
Supplier of your box can help you.
Or over to Freaktab Forum.

No i only boot from USB LibreElec, CoreElec builds.

Do DVB S2 (satellite) drivers work correctly?
After installation, TVHeadEnd can not see DVB adapters.

CE supports only Mecool M8S Plus DVB-T2/C. No support for DVB-S2 version.
Also you have to use gxl_p231_1g_m8s_dvb.dtb for this box.
This box is not recommended by CE team, there is missing linux driver for WiFi chipset.
If you look for full support for both boxes you can try CE clone “AlexELEC”.

Could be somebody make new DTB for Mecool M8S Plus DVB-T2/C?
There is working source for this one.

gxl_p231_1g_m8s_plus_dvbt.dts (1.7 KB)

Dev is away.

I did not find how to compile the tds to tdb.
Is is here somebody who know how to do it?

I tried use dtc for compile but wit this error:
FATAL ERROR: Unable to parse input tree

You can build the linux package.

Which package? I using Ubuntu desktop and I have install dtc compiler package from repository for dts and dtb, but I am not able to compile it.
Is there somebody who can compile this dts file to dtb: gxl_p231_1g_m8s_dvb-t2.dts attachment (1.6 KB)
It is for Mecool M8S Plus DVB-T2/C. It is working dts from AlexELEC source.

Because CoreELEC dtb for M8S Plus tuner does’nt work.
