Sunvell T95X: Stuck at Setup Wizard

I have a Sunvell T95X with LibreELEC that is about a year old, so I tried to do a new coreELEC image.

I followed the instructions and even copied the remote.config file from my LibreELEC partition.

However, although I am able to boot, I cannot advance the setup wizard. I press the remote buttons and I heard the normal kodi sounds, but nothing happens.

Pressing the button that looks like the left mouse button, turns off the T95X.

I even tried without the LibreELEC remote.config file, still the same.

Any ideas? Thanks!

You need to use a keyboard, to go through the initial setup, after that you can setup your remote.

It would be best to start with a new coreelec image rather than trying to go from LE to CE

I don’t know if it’s possible, but you might be able to drop the CE tar file in the update folder of your LE & reboot

Thanks. I don’t remember that being the case in the past, but I will try.

By the way, I am NOT trying to upgrade LE to CE.

Thanks.

I can confirm T95x 1G/8G works fine with latest CE 8.95.7

I use a Harmony to send IR commands to it, but these codes should also work with the original remote as the Harmony only replicates them.

Below procedure is for the meson.ir version.

From your computer, startup putty and SSH into your T95x box.
login with root and pasw coreelec
then cd /storage/.config/rc_keymaps
then type nano T95x
copy paste the below codes into nano
then ctrl+X and save

that’s it … maybe you’ll need to restart T95x

x140 KEY_POWER
0x2bdca KEY_UP
0x2bdd2 KEY_DOWN
0x2bd99 KEY_LEFT
0x2bdc1 KEY_RIGHT
0x2bdce KEY_ENTER
0x2bdd0 KEY_BACK
0x2bdce KEY_HOME
0x2bdd6 KEY_MENU
0x2bd88 KEY_PLAY
0x2bd55 KEY_STOP
0x2bd85 KEY_PLAYPAUSE
0x2bdd0 KEY_EXIT
0x2bd84 KEY_FASTFORWARD

good luck

added : I can also confirm that installtointernal works fine on this box

@bubblegum57 that is incorrect information.

Only the current nightly works with remote.conf otherwise you have to use the instructions above.

respectfully Adam, bubblegum is correct in sofar that to configure Kodi itself an usb/rf keyboard is ideal, including for youtube searches.
But yes for the IR one needs to use the procedure you described.

I’d like to thank you for CoreElec, and congratulate the entire CE team for making the installation a far far smoother experience than the LE ‘forum threads’ strategy of distributing binaries and assistance … I really enjoyed the auto update from 6 to 7 :slight_smile:

Not, trying to pick a argument. I should have clarified, the difference between remote.conf way, & the remote cfg way.

I was being lazy, that’s why I just said remote.

Thanks, so I was able to configure CE stable using a keyboard but the remote no longer works.

Now I understand I have two options, update to nightly and use my old remote.conf, or try what @ColonelKurtz mentioned, correct?

thanks all!

Hi ColonelKurtz. I followed your instructions but it is still not working.

I named the file T95x (upper case T, lowercase x). Is that the correct name? how does CE knows to use it?

this is my series of commands:

login as: root

To do this NOT using the remote.conf read this CoreELEC 9.0.x Remote files

It doesn’t look like there is a T95x in the repo.

but there may be something similar

otherwise read this to create your own How to configure IR remote control

Nothing magical about T95x, it is just an arbitrary filename. As bubble suggested you should read adamg’s instructions as well, about stopping Kodi etc. It appears I was lazy as well ;). The T95x file is fine though. Good luck.

EDITED: so I followed the tutorial (How to configure IR remote control) and the table that works for my Sunvell T95X remote is this:

0x140 KEY_POWER
0x116 KEY_UP
0x11a KEY_DOWN
0x151 KEY_LEFT
0x150 KEY_RIGHT
0x113 KEY_ENTER
0x119 KEY_BACK
0x111 KEY_HOME
0x14c KEY_CONTEXT_MENU
0x14e KEY_1
0x10d KEY_2
0x10c KEY_3
0x14a KEY_4
0x109 KEY_5
0x108 KEY_6
0x146 KEY_7
0x105 KEY_8
0x104 KEY_9
0x101 KEY_0
0x141 KEY_MUTE
0x142 KEY_BACKSPACE
0x118 KEY_VOLUMEUP
0x110 KEY_VOLUMEDOWN
0x100 KEY_PLAYPAUSE

Thank you all for your help!

@bubblegum57 what I was referring to is that a USB keyboard is not required.

Simply boot CE after burning the image and renaming DTB, scp the remote configuration and then reboot and the initial wizard can then be configured via IR.
