Mods please move or remove if I am breaking any rules
I have just received a Tanix X4 and I am happy to share any files or information from it if it would be helpful to the development team. Equally, if there is testing I can help with please feel free to contact me.
I also bought a Tanix X4… but haven’t had the time to test it … try to install CE via SD card soon.
Anyone who did it succssfully ? Which dtb used ??
Using a Tanix TX3mini via SD Card at the moment… exept Netflix 1080 everything is good, so I have the X4 for future demands…
I can confirm that the Tanix X4 is working via SD-card and toothpick method.
Just tested the Box for 25 minutes and everything worked fine like on my TX3 mini.
Shutdown, reboot, playback, connecting to my samba server… everything worked.
I took the same dtb as superceleron.
I am only using Ethernet so I can say, that Ethernet also is working without problems.
The next couple of days I gonna test reboot to internal Android and how it is doing when switching off WIFI on Android… (heard that some people had problems with disabled WIFI and Ehternet)
I don’t use bluetooth so hadn’t checked that until now but it says “No Bluetooth adapter found” once you enable it.
For the VFD I have tried heaps of the config files but couldn’t find one that worked. Happy to customise a conf file if someone can point me in the right direction for determining the right parameters to use.
I’ve been using Corelec on the X4 for a few weeks now and I have noticed that the SPDIF output doesn’t work - I’ve tried all sound devices in the settings, but no luck. It works properly in the stock Android though. Any idea what needs to be configured to make SPDIF work?
BTW I took a shot of the board if anyone’s interested.
My 4GB/32GB Tanix X4 has finally arrived from China from Banggood. All the online reviews I’ve seen of the box suggest it’s got Gigabit Ethernet. However when I booted up for the first time in Android, my Unifi Switch reports 10/100Mbs only, not Gigabit.
If I use the same cable and switch port in a Gigabit Ethernet USB3 adaptor plugged into the X4 I get Gigabit flagged so it’s not the cable or switch port - at least not obviously so.
Are there multiple versions of the Tanix X4? Are the reviews wrong?
I’ll try to boot up into CoreElec when I get some time later this week. The Tanix looks a much neater and cleaner box than the S905X4 X96 I have (the gaudy LED lighting ring on the X96 is not something I particularly value in a media player)
