First, I thank you for developing CoreELEC. I have a spare Nexbox A95X (S905H, 1GB) collecting dust but now with CoreELEC it is once again found its place in my living room.
I managed to install CoreELEC to it via SD card. Even though the box says “A95X” in the front, at the back of the box there is a sticker indicting that the processor is S905 and has 1GB ram. I used “gxbb_p200_1G_100M_RealtekWiFi” as the device tree and it worked properly. All 4 cores of the CPU were identified, with working USB, ethernet, and WIFI. I was happy.
The IR-remote that came with it did NOT work out of box I also followed this guide (How to configure IR remote control) to customize a configuration file. Everything was working, including power-down using the button. However, I cannot “power-up” (or is it “wake-up”?) the tv box using the IR-remote, instead, I have un-plug and plug-in the power core (there is no physical power on/off button).
My questions are:
using Meson-ir, does “KEY_POWER” (which I assigned the red on/off button to) actually a) turns off the machine completely, or b) put the machine into stand-by/sleep mode,
using Meson-ir, how can I use the IR-remote to “power on/off” the machine?
I found this thread (NEW Repo for Remote files (Thanks to Betatester)) which contains remote configuration files for various amlogic box/remote. However, these .conf files has very different structures than the guide for Meson-ir. Granted I only spent an hours or so (at work, without access to the tv-box for tryout), will these remote configuration file allow me to turn on/ff the machine?
or should I follow this guide (how-to-configure-ir-wakeup-code/5282), or is that guide specific to Odroid N2?
Some time ago I successfully tested these boards with gxb_p201_v1 uboot from CE-git repository. PCB was blue, SKhynix RAM H5TQ4G63CFR-RDC (CL13) and the simple eMMC memory. However, if you are using Android 6 you will most likely not be able to boot to Android since this uboot is from Nougat branch
Understood, I don’t plan to spend time playing with uboot.
Coincidentally I have MCE remote that also worked (out of box). I find the MCE IR remote much more responsive then the standard IR remote with Meson-ir.
Problem with any IR remote is of course the line of sight. I have several PS3 BD remotes (bluetooth) that I used with a Intel NUC/Libreelec. I haven’t had time to test it with CoreElec. Is PS3 BD remote supported by CE?
