I upgraded tonight from 2.3.5 to ICS Beta... all good. BBC iPlayer does not work, though.

Hi all,

great thread with a lot of information. I am almost convinced that I will get a lot of fun with this device. I need to change my current tv box setup.

But I'm not able to find in this or other forums the response to this:

Can the AVT2000 or AVT4000 --->RECORD<--- the TV programs?

Thank you very much

I will prepare at weekend some pack of running applications and step to do. I have a few more apps to check.

If someone have problem after upgrade with res it will have to do again only SPI 2.3 upgrade. After this the tv screen will be properly gauged.
In the ICS 4.0.1 Beta I installed on my ATV1000 the bottom menu is always there and takes about 40% of the screen. Anybody experiencing the same? What do you mean by SPI 2.3 above? Cheers.

Rolled back to update20120111.zip. ICS 4.0.1 beta was ok but fixed menu at the bottom was taking too much real estate.

Reloading the SPI will reset the resolution back to 720, which on my TV isn't good, the edges of ICS are off screen.

Using the supplied dongle on an ATV 2000, I can timeshift record but I am not sure about clicking on an EPG listing and recording a future program. The EPG display is confusing

I cannot find any function that will allow to set a future time to record a TV program.

I have updated the beta ICS 4.0 for few days, there are some issues for Flash, market, youtube app which do not work.

For video player, mx player app, there is too noise sound while I am watching the HD film.

Another thing, after upgrading ICS 4.0.1, I tried to connect XBox 360 gamepad in atv1000 usb, but It doesn't work. I heard that ICS has supported the gamepad usb . Anyone can help me for this ?

but I still have questions for the experts:
This file support v.2.2 ? i need file 512F .
This file support any version Android (2.2 ;2.3; etc.) ?
I first put the file SPI into the chip, after I must put the firmware (for example - update20111102.zip)on the sd card and upload to the device. right? or I missed something?

Thx.

Just installed the ICS Beta - like the look of it but as mentioned in an earlier post the bottom menu took up too much of the screen and I've returned to version 2.3.5. I liked the fact that the ICS upgrade took all my settings & Apps so I didn't have to reload them (going back wasn't quite that easy!!) - I did hit a problem at one stage with ICS with various flashing colours across the whole screen when moving the pointer or clicking.
Once there's a stable version of ICS available I will upgrade.

Does anyone know if Flash and Netflix are now working with Android 4.0?

Hi All!
I bought a ATV3000-et, put into a 500G hard drive!
How do I access the windows network?
Which install torrents that can save to your hard drive?
All of the sd card you want!
I upgraded the system 2.3.6.

Got a little further, it needs the framework and google sign in apk's.

I think it just needs the framework and possible build.prop edits but i cannot get the right one to install.

any news on the other guys guide etc, ics look very promising if it works as well as 2.3.4 then this player will be perfect for my needs.

The Browser is so much better for scrolling and speed, the look and feel is great just wish geniatech can make good on their promise and release a working version of ics...

I'm sure they will sell loads if they can pull that off...

there should be an app called network, as long as you have shared the folders correctly they should show up after it searches.

the latest update works a treat with my media server running windows server 2008 streams perfectly, just waiting and hoping for ics goodness and its almost perfect, shame about the lack of spdif on the atv lower range...

Hi guys..... Am tempted to purchase the ATV1000 model and have a few questions.

Currently using a Boxee Box but its getting quite limiting now. Also am used to Android devices so am ok at tinkering....
  • Was wondering if this is capable of major mkv files, about 25GB in size?
  • Is the software the same across the range of set top boxes? I.e. atv2000, 3000, 4000? Just this thread is pretty long and I would need to go through it all to get up to date information and software....
  • My external hard drives are formatted to ntfs, does this box read ntfs? edit noticed it is NTFS READ ONLY.
  • Do you guys use the media player it comes with or a third party one, does that have hardware acceleration?
  • Does the software that comes with it organise the movies or can display media details of your movies and shows?
Thanks....

Does it crash, or load into the program but not play the videos? I am interested in updating to ICS 4 but need iPlayer to work. I may end up having to wait a few months or so...

i played 1080p mkv of 22gb file size, but i think the limit is not the file size, but the bitrate. they said it can support up to 40 mb/s bitrate, i think 40 mb/s but only via cable, coz wifi will lag at 40 mb/s. new boxes are dual-core, they should support much more. also use the default integrated player, its tuned to use the resources of the box. no other media players in my test performed better. and the default media player is pretty good and many options. atv 1000 and 2000 have the same firmware, but i think 3000 and 4000 are different, but could be wrong. i think 3000/4000 are not that popular, as integrated hd is not such a big deal. its more convenient to have an external hd (to copy files onto it). no movie organiser, just browse the folder, select file, open with media player. would be nice to have an application, that based on the movie file name will connect to imdb and display info. if any know such application, let us know.

thanks to szemo77's help ive got the market kinda working for me, the framework he let me test got as far as account then crashed.

I used a framework from another package, including the googleaccount signin apk and this worked with a version of the market from my galaxy nexus, trouble is you can browse /search etc but when you try and download it crashes.

looks like could be different versions of apk's somewhere, ive got you tube on from the nexus looks really good hd etc, got maps working fine, i tried the chrome beta but it wont display pages, runs and if the released version works then will be very good.

esfile explorer works and can be used to stream films from as nas etc, trouble is playing mkv with ac3 or dts the audio starts then you get a his then carries on and repeats so unwatchable,any format but dts or ac3 works fine, could try over stereo lead instead of coaxial to see if this works...

if you are getting screen issues then you need to install the 2.3 SPI file i.e update.img and install as you would a rom flash.

then install ics on top, works in 720p only.

gmail works, email works, no rj45 but wireless seems to work.

all in all if they get it working on ics then this player will be very good...

will fill in if i get other stuff working.

again thanks to szemo77 for his help with the 2.3 SPI file...

right managed to get other apps working great... stock ics browser is very very quick now, google+, skype (not video tested yet), ebay app, xda app, av forums app, andry birds rio (works great), maps and street view work a treat, have been trying to get market to work but gave up as you can install via app installer... flash player WONT work, just get a black screen and a plugin missing icon so no netflix etc but oddly you tube hd works a dream... have tried loads of versions but it looks like adobe may have to enable something so i dont know how genitech can sort that could be a show stopper ??

I really hope they can pull it off as the ics goodness is fantastic and these will sell if they sort it out, the remote is actually really good when you get used to it, ive got two players now as maplin were selling the b grade off for £52.50 so using it for development and the other with 2.3.4 on it.

watch this space for updates or try yourself... let me know your findings...

What version of gingerbread is your player on 2.2 or 2.3 also what is the filename you are trying to flash as you need to flash the bootloader to a later version to load the 2.3.4 update which should be around 183mb

As far as im aware im out of the box it was 2.2. With regards to the file i'm trying to flash ive tried a few. Initially i followed the instructions from the NIKINGSTORE, Buy Cool Gadgets Online with Better Price and Better Service. im currently stuck on the update page. The deials along the top are as follows:

Loader: V1.3.6-13-g49463f/(20111102.110357)

Kernal: V1.3.0.32 g20c526c(20111101.190701)

i dont know if this helps, sorry if im being stupid but this is the first time i have done anything with android.

Thanks for the help

Check your pm.... looks like you need to update the boot loader to 2.3 SPI to get 2.3.4 on.

I cannot remember if you need a bootloader update in between the shipped one and the 2.3 SPI.

once you get the spi 2.3 on you can update to update20120111 183mb...

hi all

I have a 2.5" external data drive, can anyone tell me can i use it inside the harddrive bay, if yes, then how? what connector do i need to purchase?
Also, i saw all apps the system is downloading is installed in sd card (internal 4.0GB), it does not ask where to install the app?
lastly, i have installed utorrent app now how can i fix so that the downladed files of torrent are saved in usb/ sda rather than in sd card?

  • Is the software the same across the range of set top boxes? I.e. atv2000, 3000, 4000? Just this thread is pretty long and I would need to go through it all to get up to date information and software....
  • My external hard drives are formatted to ntfs, does this box read ntfs? edit noticed it is NTFS READ ONLY.
  • Do you guys use the media player it comes with or a third party one, does that have hardware acceleration?
  • Does the software that comes with it organise the movies or can display media details of your movies and shows?
Thanks....
You would be making a bad choice (I own both players), this is an Android phone OS running on a set top box, it is nowhere remotely near the ease of use the Boxee Box is and lacks many of the features Boxee has.

Don't do it unless you have Android apps lined up to replace all the missing functionality. It is not a good local media player, the hardware is good but the software is not.

Well I'm (eventually) liking this set. For just over £50 delivered its amazing value.
Upgrading to 2.3.4 is a must.

My only major negative is the lack of BBC iplayer.
Its one of the reasons I bought this set, to link to iplayer and the ITV player.
Like others I tried it via the web site, but no joy. I loaded the android app, but while looks like its about to work it they says it can't play the content. This was via wireless, so I tried via ethernet/cat5. Bizarrely it comes up with a error message which says the app will only play content via wireless. WTF??

If this set had the ability to play the iplayer content then I would be well happy. At this point I am a little frustrated.
I've read the info about the tweaked flash player for this set, but am hopeful Geniatech will address this or the BBC will get their app working properly (i.e without the need for flash)

I dont know what box you have then as mine plays everything i have apart from wmv's, will play dvd, mkv, avi etc etc over dts and ac3...

streams over the network perfectly even at 1080p, i also have a wd live streamer (newest version) and that has some issues, but this has the internet and a shed loads of apps to install and get the player working exactly like you want it, check email, facebook etc without getting your laptop out etc.

with a local drive is works perfectly too so please what are your problems with this as i am sure we can get it to work as you want it to...

Any idea if this would work with OnLive? I'm really impressed how smooth OnLive looks on the Amlogic box, but obviously need a controller for it.

Or has anyone tried the official OnLive controller? Universal OnLive Wireless Controller

What are peoples experience of the 1080p setup here.

I am running my unit through a 51" Samsung Plasma. Initially 1080p looked great. On this screen size a noticable uplift in graphics quality over 720p.

However I started to notice issues when typing. Bizzarrely the keyboard locked when adding text to the keyboard clipboard GUI, and URLs to the browser.
This issue went away after returning to 720p.

Is it unusable in 1080p, i.e the GPU side not capable enough? or is this just a firmware issue which could be addressed at some point?

Cheers

MD
