Interesting - so my box is rev A (the serial starts with 290a). Thanks again for the tip.
It worked… Until I did something, and then it didn’t. Installation went fine, I booted into CoreELEC, switched System resolution to 2160p (no issues), but then when I changed to “render GUI in 4K” in the CoreELEC settings and rebooted the gadget, I can only see the initial CoreELEC logo, and then only black screen.
Is there a way to reset CoreELEC to the original state?
Never mind, I ran “systemctl restart kodi” from ssh, and it brought back kodi. It does looks sharper, so perhaps it does use 4K GUI. But it looks this mode is unstable. I’ll check if I need this mode to render my images in 4K without downscaling.
BTW I still have SSH access into the box.
Just to say that also Ugoos am6 is not shipped anymore with rev. B cpu, some users documented this in youtube video comments.
A question - does CoreELEC installed on this player (on a uSD card) use the built-in flush memory of the player? If yes, where is it mounted? If not, then I made a mistake using a very small SD card (only 2GB) for CoreELEC installation. Can I switch to a larger SD card after the initial installation? What’s the procedure?
CE uses only space on medium that is installed on, so in your case on uSD card.
To switch to larger uSD card when installation (on smaller one) is finished you make a System Backup (from CoreElec Settings) and copy it to some device. After you finish installation on larger one, then you restore from that device.
I have both config.ini with
and a keymap with
# table gtkingboxkeymap, type: NEC
This way I can use the power button to turn on and also to turn off the box.
I 've got a Beelink GT-King with ‘regular’ AirMouse and did the config as above.
In my remote.conf I have
factory_code = 0x7f800000
work_mode = 0
repeat_enable = 1
repeat_delay = 120
repeat_peroid = 33
release_delay = 121
debug_enable = 1
# KEY Code Key_Action Kodi_Action
0x51 116 #KEY_POWER power ON/OFF
powering off is OK so far now, but powering up again is not working
instead, the box goes green eyes but nothing on screen / have to remove the power cable off and on again to get the coreELEC powering up and showing the start…
any chance can someone provide any solution ?
is there a different key code for powering up ?
or any configuration in CoreELEC to activate powering up with remote ?
Thx a lot in advance
Hello. I have a Beelink GT King Pro running the dual version with Coreelec. I want it to stay powered on all the time. I have CEC disabled in Kodi, yet when I turn off the tv it turns off the Beelink. What am I missing?
Try turning CEC off on the television & Beelink.
Nevermind. Turns out it was the harmony remote turning it off. But thanks for the reply!
i noticed there are 2 coreelec for gt king, rev.a and rev.b, which one should i use, my gtking’s SN is SB9X。。。。
Start with rev a, then check in Kodi’s Settings -> Information -> Hardware and see which SoC revision you have. If it’s a B revision, then change the dtb to the rev b one.
thanks a lot. u mean reinstall the coreelec system using rev.b by “then change the dtb to the rev b one.”
You don’t need to reinstall anything, you just change the dtb file on the root of the SD card.
My GT king Pro only gives 4k 30fps max doesn’t even appear in the settings. Nor does it play DTS True HD or Dolby Digital, HD, even after manually adjusting these settings on android.
That is nothing to do with revisions. Use CE to get HD audio and other stuff.
First of all my apologies for my English.
Your development with the coreelec is perfect, at least it works wonderfully with my old Minix u9 at 100% with only 2 GB of memory and 16 RAM.
My intention when talking about the Beelink Gt King Pro is that not all machines are as presented on the sales websites or even on the official website of the brand, and Coreelec can have problems if installed on one of these inferior models. In my case in several files the image freezes and needs to be restarted and still does not solve the problem.
I am sure that the problem is in the machine and not in the coreelec software (it never happened nor happens in the minix u9) which is an old model and inferior in performance. Coreelec works 100% with the U9 minix: Image and sound, 1080p or 4K 60fps and from AAC to DAtmos perfectly.
In reference to the Beelink GT King (my model SN:SA9HHQCG60060) I just want to warn you that even Coreelec does not make this machine work 100%. Even the controler stop to work in one week.
However I want to emphasize again that with the U9 minix Coreelec is installed and working like never before, Thanks for your job.
Are you on the latest nightly? I got my gt-king last week and so far it’s been great.
