    Don't know if it will work but perhaps you can get the Odroid C2 image to run on your tv-box: https://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?f=138&t=19403

    You could always try to update the kernel, some posts back there is a link to Balbes150's build tools at Github, it allows you to build the kernel and modules packages for a newer kernel which you can install in a running Armbian. I tried it and the updated kernel installed on 3.14 without a hitch, but uname still reports version 3.14, so that is something of a mystery I haven't figured out yet.

    Based on the fact that it is a 905W cpu I think you could try the dtb's with 212 in the name, you might be in luck

    Sorry I can't be of any help with that, I run all my tv and tuner related stuff on a windows pc. Balbes150 is the developer and probably knows but he has not been active here for a while...

    You need to find the correct dtb (which is not always easy), I don't know that box, do you know the model number of the box's board? Otherwise it is cut and try with all the dtb's in the BOOT partition of the Armbian sdcard.

    I have never heard of OSMC, I tried your links but can't read the language. I also tried the download links (rc4 and 1.0) and get only "not found". However from the forum titles is seems to me to be Android based images which is not of interest.

    @balbes150 I have build kernel 4.18 using your script and installed the packages on my Armbian system but uname -sr still reports 3.14, why oh why???

    No that is not the case, Anbox emulates ARM inside but Anbox itself does not run om ARM processors, only x86/64. If you could get your hands on the source code (which I strongly doubt) you could compile it for ARM thou......

    Obviously there is a problem with I/O on the mmc, perhaps not fully supported by the current kernel. Have you tried other images?

    Yes I get the same from fdisk on my box, but GPARTED does not see the partitions and therfore Linux does not either. SO, does gparted see the partitions on emmc?

    To address your last issue first, I have also experienced some images where video output never comes back after screen is turned off due to timeout. It seems to be a general issue with newer kernels. Now on 905x boxes the install.sh script does not work and there is no way to install to mmc. Period. On S912 it should work, are you able to access the internal partitions? Does Gparted see them without reporting errors? Extracting dtb from Android firmware does not work either.

    I think you misread, it is the Android image that is for ARM (among others), if you try to download Anbox for arm linux you'll find that it does not exist.

    The thing is that the install.sh doesn't work. It bricks the box so for all practical purposes it is impossible to install armbian to emmc. You need to download a complete image of the box's original firmware and flash it using a pc. Google "flashing china tv box" and you'll find download link and instructions.

    I see no reason why it should not work
