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)
I am only trying to future proof myself for the new kernel since my odroid and vim devices are so much better with CE anyway.
My flavour of the Tanix X4 though is not the way to go, the TF card is hard to access, plus it is upside down like the other ports. No wifi or BT either. Don’t know about the coax SPDIF but I will return this. Their Android (ATV) doesn’t even allow network adb connections
