Hello @SlimHouse Your ROMs rock thank you! I recently upgraded to version 12.1 of PIE on my X96MAX+2 boxes (I have 4). I can't get the Samba feature to show the boxes on my windows 10 PC. I can see all the other shares on the network from the PC and I can see the X96 Samba shares from my android phone, using MIxplorer. Previoulsy I had version 11.6 pie and I was able to see the X96 Samba share on the windows 10 machine. I do have the File Server box checked and a username and password setup. I've done a good bit of searching and checked and applied any windows 10 feature adjustments, which had really already been implemented. Anyone else experiencing this and got a fix? I'm stumped for now.

Edit: I also tried from my windows 7 PC. That PC also does not see the X96 boxes on the network either. I did try LAN Drive app on one of the boxes, and the PC was able to see the X96 and access the folders and files. So I don't think the issue is with the PC. I'm hoping there is a way to get this to work natively with the SlimRom Samba feature. Thanks in advance for any help.

I have a problem with a TvBox (H9x3). After a few minutes the screen goes pink/purple.
I tried to change the "Color Space" to RGB but automatically switches to YCbCr444 after a few minutes.
Also tried with different HDMI port and cable.

Firmware version: 12.1

Hello @SlimHouse, thank you for replying. I already have had those options turned on for some time, to get the other shares on my system to become visible, and it was working prior to upgrading to version 12. I was hoping there was something else I might be missing perhaps in the ROM settings that might be affecting this.
Do you think there is anything else I can do?

Reboot the windows 10 PC and see if they show up. I'm running Windows 8 and every once in a while the Simba shares just disappear and they won't show up until I reboot the PC.

Aye, thanks for replying. Yes, rebooted the PC and the X96's and the router a number of times. I have four other computers in the network besides the 4 X96 boxes. All the computers show up on the network. The X96 boxes do not.

Hello, I found a workaround, in case someone else wants it. I created "Network Place" to the internal storage folder, for each of the X96MAX+2 boxes, and that did allow me access from the PC. Weird that I can access that way but the X96MAX+2 boxes don't show up in the network folder.

    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.
