Mecool m8s plus dvb


#1

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


#2

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.


#3

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.


#4

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.


#5

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


#6

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.


#7

AVL6762 is unsupported.

@antrace82 did you copy and rename the DTB?


#10

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.
