Hello people! I have made several queries in the forum, but I had no luck, no one has ever responded ... I hope this time it works out for me ... After turning off my box (x96 max plus 2 4/32) with slimbox atv 12.1, at turn off the tv, the box turns on by itself. Has this happened to someone else? Can you explain how to solve it? Is it the HDMI? Thanks !!!

Кeep longer power buton on remote, then select what You want: shut down, restart, sleep... Also, if You do not want to turn off TV with remote of box - turn off the option for HDMI CEC.

This is most likely what's happening. When you turn off your box it's sending a signal over HDMI to turn off the TV then when you push the button to turn off the TV you're actually turning it back on which then turns the box back on. These are settings under the display category for the HDMI CEC controls.

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!

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!!!!!

Lo más probable es que esto sea lo que está sucediendo. Cuando apaga su caja, está enviando una señal a través de HDMI para apagar el televisor, luego, cuando presiona el botón para apagar el televisor, en realidad lo vuelve a encender y luego vuelve a encender la caja. Estos son ajustes en la categoría de visualización para los controles HDMI CEC.
¡Gracias Rainey por tu ayuda!

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.

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.

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...

Thanks for your help Awi Babau! The problem arises when I turn off the tv with the tv remote control. I have the box shutdown well configured in the "shutdown" option. Until then, everything ok, the box turns off completely. But when I turn off the tv with the tv control itself, the box turns on by itself ... Very strange indeed ... As I mentioned before, I have deactivated the HDMI CEC on both the tv and the box ... For the At the moment the solution I found is to just turn off the box and let the tv turn off automatically after a period of inactivity, that's how I am managing for the moment. Thanks again and greetings!

If you think you have CEC disabled on the TV connected to the box and on the box and the box still turns on randomly. Then it can be any device on your network or the TV itself that's controlling the box over the network with "anynet+" device protocol or *network remote control".
That is you have settings in some device on your network that allows a remote control or your device to send signals over the network and it's waking up your box. So now you have to check your settings for anynet+ on all your devices and find out which ones causing it.

I don't know the solution. Using ola and when I get a 5.1 channel I have the same problem as my TV only has two speakers so I get no audio. I've played around with Android viperFX and did not find any settings to solve the problem. There may be other software you could run that would down mix 5.1 audio but whether it would work right with the HBO Max app if that's what you're using I don't know. All I know is that these China boxes just pass through the 5.1 audio and if you don't have anything to receive it you get no audio.

Your best bet is to look for settings in the app you're using to play the channel on how to get it to be stereo instead of 5.1 if that's what's even happening I'm assuming. You haven't verified anything I've suggested so we're all still just assuming that's what's happening.

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

I couldn't find a CastReceiver Pro app. Only the CastReceiver. Tried that but was some trial version which I could use for five minutes at a time. Still didn't work properly. When I tried casting from the Vodafone TV I could see the box listed (an improvement) but then it couldn't connect. Just spent spinning and spinning and nothing happened. Then I started trying other casting apps but nothing. The box never got visible on the list. I can see the Sony TV which is also and Android TV, but the box is completely stealth (which is not a feature in this case)

I have been running some experiments to see if I could understand why I can't see any content from the Vodafone. These are the things I tried:
  • Turned location on
  • Turned off all the developers settings
  • Allowed all the permissions it needed
Funny enough, I realized that they allow access to content from their video rental service. Didn't try to rent a movie, but tried the trailer and lo and behold, it played smoothly. I'm getting really upset with this.

    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...

    @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.

    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.
