Hello, i bought x96 mini s905w 2gb ram 2 months ago from gearbest. (it’s not a fake one, it actually has 2gb ram). For some reason this device is freezing from time to time. At first i thought that overheating causes it, but it doesn’t. Sometimes it freezes just 10 minutes after using. Also it depends on the program. Some programs uses less resources, so it freezes much less often.
For example with app smart iptv (https://siptv.app/news/) it freezes after around 20 minutes. With halva tv player it takes around 4 hours. Also with smart iptv there is visible stuttering. (fps drops)
I have tried changing display resolution to 1080p50. (the channels that i watch use 1080p25). I only want to use this device to watch full hd iptv. I could even install linux if this could help.
I have also tried https://www.atvxperience.com/ rom, but it didn’t helped.
With coreelec, libreelec or alexelec it’s even worse than android. It has visible stuttering (fps drops) and it freezes just after 5-10 minutes. (even when using 1080p25 resolution)
I tried using usb drive, sd card. Installed with rufus, Win32DiskImager. It still has same issues. I guess there is something wrong with amlogic codec on this device. When i tried to run non hd channels it seems that there is no stuttering.
Maybe i should try different dtb? I always use gxl_p281_2g
Maybe my x96 mini has updated hardware and the dtb is created for older version?
