    Ztrawberry got a reaction from DaviMesquita in CSC Armbian for RK322X TV Boxes   
    Hi @DaviMesquita, yes with these boxes it is quite random due to all the hardware differences on the "same models". Personally I have found that looking at the various DTB files help (once you have converted them to DTS) and even managed to solve a few small issues for my boxes. 
     
    BTW my SSV6051 loads perfectly and works on 2.4Ghz, which as far as I recall is correct since it doesn't support 5Ghz on the CSC RK322x image. You might want to test this one as well just to be sure.
     

     
    Here is my mntui output:

     
    One thing you can try is the DTB file changes, the other I read somewhere is using the Wi-Fi p2p0 since somebody said somewhere they could only get it working on p2p0 but not on wlan0 interface.
     
    Regarding your thought for using this in lower income households, perfect, I thought about the same in South Africa. The only issue is getting consistent hardware, and I now believe the only way manufacturing in Taiwan at a slightly higher cost. But with the whole covid think it might actually be worthwhile in our developing countries...
     
    Good luck!

    Wifi Issue
    Thank you very much, @fabiobassa
     
    I just wanted to make sure that I tried everything about this wifi issue. Now I can rest in peace 
     
    I guess I was a little bit unlucky about the hardware I bought. Also, I wasn't aware about the high varienty amongst these TV Boxes. Next time I'll look here before I buy anything and I'll look for a more suitable and commom box (If someone want to suggest a good option, I would appreaciate too).

    Multimedia - Youtube
    Another topic I'd like to bring is about the performance on running youtube videos. I tried to run some videos on youtube, using chromium (I'll try firefox next time) and the performance was really bad, even for low resolution videos. 
     
    I also realized that the video players were also slow. Then I tried the turorial below and I got great results when I run the following command:
    "mpv --hwdec=rkmpp -vo=gpu --gpu-api=opengl --gpu-context=drm --opengl-es=yes <video_file>"
     
    But the performance on youtube is still bad
     
    Is there any way to use gpu when I run youtube videos or any other way to improve the perfomance of this task?
     
    Thanks!

    Ztrawberry reacted to moshem in eth0 network down all of a sudden, update?   
    Hi,
     
    my S912 box was untouched for the past few weeks, I tried to connect to it and couldn't I tried direct access and turns out my eth0 (wired lan) is still detected but marked as down
    the green/yellow light on the box and on the router is not blinking for it.
     
    nothing changed in my setup, maybe a armbian update was done recently? my uptime is 7 days but I am not sure I recall restarting 7 days ago..
     
    ifup eth0 image attached
     
    what can I check or do to revive it? any help appreciated as the box is currently offline and useless

    Not sure if this is related... Today I cloned the build scripts from https://github.com/armbian/build and created a legacy Ubuntu desktop image for CSC RK322x. Everything worked well and I only had to use Multitool again to install the NAND bootloader (previously I had the Debian test image from 2 days ago installed via StepNAND). After the bootloader reinstall it booted straight from the sdcard. Armbian-config works etc...
     
    I have to say this is a major milestone and well done @jock and team!

    Hi @Mark Khevin Rogacion, what worked for me multiple times from complete soft bricked state (once I did rkdeveloptool ef and the other time was when I wrote a legacy image to my NAND) was with AndroidTool 2.51 and a copy of the original firmware. Key is the workable firmware and watch out for whether it is NAND or eMMC. 
     
    As long as you can get the device to be USB recognized you should be fine. In some cases you would need to press the reset switch inside the AV port, but in a worst case scenario you would need to short the NAND or eMMC pin. I found a picture on which chip and pins to short on forum.freaktab.com. From my attempts, I could not get the firmware to install via rkdeveloptool once I destroyed the bootloader, it showed completed but did not boot.
     
    Hi @jock, @fabiobassa, @knaerzche, just wanted to say a very very big thank you for your work. This has certainly kept me sane and entertained during these crazy times, as well as busy.
     
    If you want me to try anything, I have 2 x Scishion V88 4K RK3229 (MX4VR-01) devices with NAND and I am okay to go experiment with losing my bootloader :-)
