I will wait for Slimbox to hopefully provide a fully working rom for revision A100, i am no expert at using TWRP and worried i might stuff something up and brick my box. Thanks for your help jaytec0007

Hi I had the same problem with x96 max + A100, the way I found to make it work is to do a backup of Vendor from original firmware with TWRP then after installing slimbox 12 i went back in TWRP and restored Vendor. After reboot, whit all aps you will have DroidTV Settings, then go in Display and clic on Adaptive HDR and disable it to turn it off. Here is the TWRP I used. You will have some apps from original firmware that will install when restoring Vendor but you can uninstall them after if you want
Thanks I might try it out. I have just starting using https://4pda.to/forum/index.php?showtopic=1013103&st=720#entry104036503 and it's been working fine so far, so I'll stick with it for now.

I finally try again to do something whit my tx3 s905x3, she's less corrupted than my tx3 mini. My tx3 mini reboot all the time when trying to install an app or change something. My tx3 s905x3 I'm able to go in the settings and do whatever I need even use apps already installed, its only when I try to install an app that most of the time I wont be able to do it and launcher crash, my screen stays all black 10-15 seconds then come back. I search every where and no one seems to know how to bring it back

I have version Q2. If you don't use bluetooth, install the original Slimbox version (2 GB or 4 GB) and it will be fine.

Thanks for reply, i do use bluetooth mouse with the box, i have adjusted TV picture setting for HDMI port box is connected to and that sort of fixes the HDR issue but not ideal, will stick with v12.7 for time being and hopefully SlimHouse can fix the HDR issue at some stage. I have asked before if anybody has the factory firmware link for A100 version, would be great if i could get it, i couldn't install TWRP and back up my original firmware which is a bummer but i am a noob when it comes to flashing boxes etc... it's a lot more complex than any other type of install i have done like Windows, Linux etc!

Thank you.
And I just got email from them, with link to it too. They run out of storage on the server, so they needed to delete one image, so of all other images there, they decided to delete that one I desperately needed, just matching my everyday life beeing a black sheep 😁

Hello!

Anyone have any experience with the version for the Beelink Gt1-mini? Is it better anyhow than the last official FW on the Box? And can someone make it clear if the FW on this link is the "standard" ot the "ATV" version? (I'm asking regarding the "first" version of the Box not the Gt1-mini 2...)
I would also like to as if any Miracast options/apps are working with this FW on this Box? I have read elsewhere, that with the X96 Max Plus Box the Miracast option isn't installed by default on Slimbox, so I'm asking the same with the GT1-mini.

I guess that's for now and thanks for the replies!

Hi, just installed Slimbox TV to my Sunnzo S9 Max. I have also i8 mini keyboard.

The problem is that whatever I do, the external keyboard outputs russian characters. I tried "everything", but always russian. Even the virtual keyboard is english.

Hi in slimbox you just need to go in the box settings then go in slimBOXtv settings then go in Extra settings then go in System (Languages,time,backup...) then go in Languages & input then go in Physical keyboard Then clic on the first one on top 2.4G receiver default then clic on Set Up Keyboard Layouts (in blue) then choose the languages you want to use with keyboard.
I dont know if there is a simplest way to do it but this will work for sure

    I had thought of that and installed chromecast. But to no avail. When I try to cast from the mobile to the box, the box is not visible.

    There is an app in slimbox site called cast receiver and it was built in in the previous ROMS. It works great but you need to enable it in slimbox settings so you can see the icon in the upper system bar saying it's ready to receive. And ofc both devices need to be in the same network, meaning for example 192.168.1.0/24 or it won't work...

    I didn't try to enter without credentials (I'm assuming you're referring to username and password). Not sure that is an option. I'll check. But I can enter with the credentials and I can see my specific profile's content listings, the current channels schedules, my recordings listing and so on. So, I can get in with my user. However, whenever I try to start any of the contents I always get that failure message. Even though the box isn't in root mode, maybe they are checking if it is an approved Android TV distro?

    No, something else, i've seen a lot of people having problems in vodafone tv new app in the recent days. You installed it from google play store in the slimbox rom? Try to download official apk from official vodafone site or from apkmirror or aptoide...

    Hello!
    I have a x96 max plus, I have tried several roms (aidans room, stock and slimbox) and with none I have been able to fix the audio problem in HBO MAX... I have already tried changing the surround settings one by one and disabling them completely, but nothing works, will it be a hardware problem?

    Anyway, thanks a lot for the ROM, it's pretty good!!!!!
    Most likely this is because the audio track is 5.1. and if you don't have a 5.1 speaker system connected to the box or your TV it's not playing any audio. There's no setting to down mix that signal to stereo or surround on this box. I've noticed whenever I'm in ola and I play any channel that has 5.1 audio I get no sound and I've tried every setting possible in the box to get that sound. Now you didn't say what you're using to play HBO Max maybe you're running there app for that channel but if it's not built into the app it's not built into the box either so you end up with no audio.

    Thanks friend! But it did not work for me ... I have deactivated the HDMI SEC both in the box and in the TV. The box keeps turning on by itself ... The only way to turn it off is by disconnecting it from the electricity ... Thanks anyway! I will continue looking for the reason .... Greetings!

    How do you turn off your box? the remote button just sends it to sleep. You need to go to settings or slimbox settings (not sure which one) and search for the power section to change remote power button function to turn off instead of sleep or turn off anything there that says wake up from sleep that's enabled by default. (other places in settings have wake up from sleep options enabled by default, you need to search them and disable), but i recommend option one.

    Most likely this is because the audio track is 5.1. and if you don't have a 5.1 speaker system connected to the box or your TV it's not playing any audio. There's no setting to down mix that signal to stereo or surround on this box. I've noticed whenever I'm in ola and I play any channel that has 5.1 audio I get no sound and I've tried every setting possible in the box to get that sound. Now you didn't say what you're using to play HBO Max maybe you're running there app for that channel but if it's not built into the app it's not built into the box either so you end up with no audio.

    Well, that's the only thing i don't understand about slimbox rom, how hard is to put software sound decoders like kodi has, built-in in the ROM. Dolby, Dolby digital plus and Viper are there for this case but i never used them because i don't know how...

    @sargaco thank you. I installed the CastReceiver Pro application in the X96 max plus2 Slimbox 12 ATV box and Chromecast mirroring works great !!!

    Actually, I believe you may need to thank @awibabau instead. I believe he was the one who suggested that. I will try it myself as the Google Chromecast installation didn't work for me.

    Google Chromecast need some extra certifications if i'm not mistaken to work. You can install it but just stays there doing nothing!

    I tried out all the Netflix APKs found in this link http://freeaddons.free.fr/public/AML/X96AIR/Apps Apk/Netflix/

    They are all the mobile version of Netflix. I have found a working Android TV version of Netflix if the person who manages that link wants to upload it.

    Hi @SlimHouse

    I'm a contributor to NOVA Video Player, and we've been reported this issue: https://github.com/nova-video-player/aos-AVP/issues/393
    This issue is a bug in your ROM, it declares leanback/television support, without actually providing framework for it.

    In this case, you're lacking TvProvider (PRODUCT_PACKAGES += TvProvider). But you should be inheriting device/google/atv/products/atv_system.mk really.

    While you're there, you should probably also include LiveTv app, so you get acess to tv input services, like haystack live tv.
