kodi on armbian?

Recommended Posts

I think I found the perfect tv box, the MEECOOL KI Pro: it has integrated dvb-t2 and s2, supported by libreelec (and hopefully by armbian with a little work), WDYT?

The only problem is that coming from China I could incur some customs' fees (14€ VAT plus 20€ managing fee), but even100€ would be a good price (considering it has dvb-t2 and s2 integrated).

The slight problem with the meecool is that it's just one tuner, not two, i.e. it cannot tune at the same time a dvb-t and a dvb-s mux/transponder. Also it seems it cannot deliver the whole TS but it has to use hw pid filtering :(

 

 

there also was something by another manufacturer (magicsee) with the same s905d, maybe you are luckier with that

I doubt it, probably it has the same tuner and it has worse specs (ddr3 vs ddr4 in the mecool, 100mb ethernet vs 1Gb), see https://www.cnx-software.com/2017/11/14/magicsee-c300-is-a-70-dvb-t2c-dvb-s2-android-set-top-box-powered-by-amlogic-s905d-soc/

 

Edit: no, it's not the same tuner but it seems there's no linux driver for it: https://discourse.coreelec.org/t/any-support-for-magicsee-c300-pro/837

There's also a bigger model (c400). This is exactly what I was talking about "no support from manufacturer" when dealing with tv boxes; you're on your own.

edit: BTW I see that c300 is a s905d devices, but your link points to some documentation about a s912 device, maybe they are not the same device

 

PS: for the chronicles, this could be interesting just to say I was in good faith when I was talking about H3

I never thought you were in bad faith. Pity that my orange pi pc is in active use as my doorbell otherwise I could test it (though by reading the thread it seems there's still a lot of work to be done).
