After many hours struggling, I finally managed to install the latest CoreElec on my Amlogic S912 based Mecool KIII Pro STB, and am slowly finding my way around the system.
It’s nice to have Midnight Commader available as it lets me navigate and discover the filesystem more easily
I’m hoping to set up Oscam to descramble scrambled channels and I understand that I need to configure Tvheadend first to be able to do this, but Tvheadend does not recognise the TV adapter when assigning DVB inputs. Any suggestions why not?
I just came across this msg in /storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/service.tvheadend42/service.log
which sounds like a permissions problem…

2.- Prepare a microSD for a new installation of CoreELEC as described in https://coreelec.org -> Download -> 9.0.2 Stable -> New Installation (forget now about new updates of the tvheadend and oscam servers that you have seen in linuxsat-support.com, and Midnight Commander, when you know better CoreELEC try the experiments you want)
3.- Start CoreELEC from the microSD and wait for the initial CoreELEC configuration to finish.
4.- From Kodi in CoreELEC install the addons:
CoreELEC Module Drivers (I suggest: DVB_drivers_for_TBS)
Tvheadend Server 4.2
Tvheadend HTSP Client
5.- Configure Tvheadend Server from a PC at http://coreelec_ip:9981. You should see your tuner in Configuration-> DVB_Inputs-> TV_adapter.
6.- Configure OSCam from a PC at http://coreelec_ip:8888
