Purchased a chromecast 2 a long time ago and kept it in storage until now. Now I find out that the wifi is no good in the room it is supposed to be in. I still have my Mecool BB2 non pro which has a rj45 and probably better wifi due to an external antenna.

Will this rom (which one of the versions.... a table or list instead of a guess would be nice) make me able to chromecast from my phone/pc to the BB2 ?

Another question. I can play HD videos on youtube without an issue on this device but playing a 1080i or even very low quality from a tv station apk installed file is a no go or extremely bad quality. Any idea why and will this play on this rom like it should? For reference in another room on a different floor I have a Google Chromecast tv thing (latest) and those streams play like they should.

there is a bb2 version i think may work, a table is no magic awnser due do same devices having several revisions, clones ect :)

Chromecast wont work as no widevine Level 1,

Youtube should work fine, i use smart tube next, i can cast without chromecast this way :)

    The image v8 functions OK on this box and the update you see is the original manufacturer`s update for the MI box which incompatible as you can imagine as we are not using this box , So it will never update via this method. There is NO power managment ON/OFF Feature also.
    I recently tried this image on A H96_pro+specs, Blue PCB 3/32 LPDDR ...But I swiftly moved back to the slimbox v14.2 ATV and it`s really Amazing! All functions are working Great! , Power managment ON/OFF, you can also use OTA updates which Works fine ,This is a Huge feature, Close all running apps function via Double clicking home button , Plus a host of other features ,Without doubt it`s the best build for your box. I would try that Build Mate. Slimbox v14.2 has builds for both the Blue and Green PCB revisions.

    Can you give me the link for "slimbox"? for H96Pro+. These are incompatible and won't load. https://slimboxtv.ru/glavnaya/h96-pro-plus/

    Unfortunatley Mate...That links too the same image file I used. My board was the Blue pcb
    sbx_h96_pro_plus_3_32_lpddr_atv_14.2.7z (Updated to 14.4 Via OTA Update)
    What Board and specs is you H96Pro+ ? do you have the Black PCB version?
    I know that these box`s come in many variants so a bit more info may be very useful.
    I have also see posts stating that the Beelink ddr4 images are compatible with some H96Pro+

    A quote from a post I read on slimbox thread Below.There may also be more cross Box image compatible with the h96_pro_plus box..This was just a quick search result.
    ppoon posted this on Oct 25, 2021 #1,599
    "The build of 12.2 Beelink gti u ddr revision can be fully applied to my H96pro+ 3g/32g ddr4. It works perfectly. Thank you."

    What you need to do is 100% make sure what PCB revision you have? what ram and full spec`s ? Before you proceed.......
    PS: Make sure to flash your image via USB Burning tool ONLY for your Best chance with image boot & box compatibility.
    I think it would be best to ask for more info or help on this in the slimbox thread as this thread is for Aidans image v8

    Hello @aidanmacgregor

    I have asked my question here:


    Issue: wifi does NOT work.
    I can turn on the wifi button but it turns off itself in a few seconds.
    Here are the details:
    TV Box - MECOOL M8S PRO L S912 3G 32G DDR3 LB
    HD PCB Pic: https://ibb.co/MBbNvhm
    wifi chip - KM63350528
    Rom Installed : 6.+[v8]+Aidan's+ROM+[S912]+[ATV+9]+[LPDDR3]+[LAN100]+(bcm4335...)+(KM6335)+(M8S+PRO+L+LB...)
    Checked hash MD5 - 8501e5192689f460a7179463f5aef72e and it's correct.
    I installed this ROM via UBT and it was a success.
    Please assist and merry Xmas.
    Regards

    Netflix wont work from play store
    The TV Version of Netflix needs Widevine Level 1 DRM, This cannot be added to your device with a firmware, Patched Netflix Apk Now Available

    Amazon Prime Wont Work
    A. Like Netflix Install the mobile app, the TV version needs Widevine Level 1

    Disney+ No Sound
    A. Fixed Earlier Release

    No Root
    There Is No Root In This Firmware Because This Is a User Build (Not User Debug)
    User Build: This Is Like The official Android Tv Devices (Like Mi Box), it does not have root or TWRP, Uses Release Keys and is SELINUX enforced
    Why?
    This Makes More Apps Show Up In The Play Store that didn't show before, (Example: Isp Android TV live tv app, only shows in Play Store On non rooted and SELINUX enforced devices, also the streams in the app do not even play in rooted devices.) And other Apps With Similar Issues On Non Certified Devices....

    myCANAL App No Sound...

    TO EVERYONE

    updates to S905W & S912 are slow due to not having test devices, makes stability improvements hard to diagnose, wifi improvements should be easier to add without testing and i will do this ass soon as i can, i have been working on a private project in most of my free time so not had a chance to further refine these chips, thanks for being paitent :)
