[S905X3] X96Air_P2/P3 4/32GB 1Gbit Lan (How to config)

I use nfs sometime video is lag

If you have lag experience something it’s wrong.
Nfs it’s far away from smb shares.
I’m using nfs for years without lag.
Forget wi-fi. Use only Lan.
Review your settings on nfs server like maximum NFS transfer size or threats.
Use advanced settings XML

Do you have an example to setting xml?

Hi guys, could someone compare picture quality with s922x boxes (like n2 and gt king) ?
Is 922x better?

First post

For the first time I’ve used coreelec, I don’t know what to do advancedsettings.xml Where to put it,Thank you.

Just put in /userdata and reboot.
Advanced settings can deal with several things (extra configs).
One of that things it’s increase cache using memory of the box to avoid stop buffering etc.

In my advanced settings. XML using 500mb of the memory box:


Using option 1 in buffer mode to Buffer all filesystems, both internet and local:


Option 5 on readfactor:

Not yet.
Maybe when exist stable version.
SD runs on acceptable speed

Before to playing with the emmc try to find your firmware and to recovery it from a sd.
Try a fast USB 3.0, Sandisk Extreme Pro, they are not far away from emmc.

Do you think a decent flash drive would be better suited than say an A1, V30 micro-sd card?

Maybe or maybe not, it depends on the card and the drive, but USB 3.0 interface is faster than de microSD card reader of this boards. I’ve tested it.

Given the fact that a Sandisk Extreme Pro USB drive may cost someone much more then one of these x96 device do. It might be a better Idea for the average person to try a more reasonably priced, but still reasonable performance ‘Sandisk Ultra Flair’ or ‘Sandisk Ultra Luxe’ first.

I’ll give it a try. I’m.sure I have a flash drive laying around.

Everything working even Bluetooth, 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz wireless.

It is a functional box for 30€. Now waiting for stable version to install on emmc. I saw a firmware of this box on freaktab forum, i do not know if is a good idea to try that firmware.

From where can you buy this P2 version for 30€ ?
