apropos flash player - 10.2 has somekind of acceleration (do not ask me how and what, i'm not programmer), but that new version 11.x what is possible to update has NOT that acceleration. so, somebody must do some thing about that. but i'm not sure do even someone think about it.

i had same problems few weeks ago, i installed flash 11.1 and everything become slow and un-watchable. when i returned to 10.2, video was ok.

about live stream, check few pages before, i linked one croatian news page which i can't watch normal. IMHO, it is more problem with programmers and numerous flash coding than our boxes.

Yes, the flash player 10.2 supplied by Geniatech utilises hardware acceleration whereas the generic 11.x does not (I believe). This means that with 10.2 the video chipset in our boxes takes some of the load from video processing away from the CPU but with 11.x the CPU has to work harder and hence the high number of dropped frames.

Probably only Geniatech can modify a later version of flash to utilise hardware acceleration for our boxes and I really hope they do because for me at least, 10.2 is useless.

It's not Geniatech but actually Amlogic who we need to get this from. I have e-mail them numerous times about it but no luck.

Are you saying Flash and Netflix are working well on ICS? That's news to me, maybe its time for me to finally upgrade.

ok...so i know what's wrong with the built in network samba app. it uses a service called smbd (samba daemon) in /system/bin. it needs to be started with the system and allowed to run again whenever needed. right now, it starts up as a oneshot. it logs in once, you close out of program, go back in and boom...doesnt work because smbd was used ONCE and shut down. I own an ATV-108 that also needs the samba sharing and it doesn't even start the smbd service becuase it is not invoked by the init.rc. init.rc is created by your root recovery image i believe. it is installed in one of the first mtd blocks and creates the root structure of your android system. then update.zip or update.img puts system files in. so we need to unpack the uimage and change init.rc to include /system/bin/smbd as MORE than a ONESHOT. i guess try for oneshot first, then try to keep it running. whos game?

The problem is related to the TVBox and its implementation of Flashplayer.

I also have an iMiTO Android tablet and Veetle lipsync is OK on that unit as is Crackle, YouTube etc. especially with the latest Flashplayer. Both the Gingerbread and ICS versions are OK

Hello,

I updated my atv1000 in 4.0, but now i get lots of problem.
I can't shutdown the box, and when i go to "settings > ethernet" the settings panel gets error and close.
I will downgrade to 2.3.4 but i have some questions.

In 2.3.4 :
- i can't install applications when my SDcard is mount, nothing happens. If i unmount it, apps will install.
- it seems that the box lags when i put the display to 1080p, i'm not sure but mouse freezes often.

Thanks for reply.

Hello to everybody

I've an enjoy tv atv 1000. I managed to upgrade it to android 2.3.4 version
I upgraded the market play store too. I installed last version of skype.

I would like to use it with my logitech hd camera but i'm not able to make it work with videocall. My webcamera is c520 model. It's like if android could not see the webcamera at all. Pls can you tell me if i must install some drivers to make it work ? Or android should recognize every model of camera and there's something else i must do ?
Sorry but this is my first attempts with android and I'm not expert

Many tks to everybody

ICS is still unstabile, and there are different problems. so, wait for somekind of third-party solution or deal with those problems or return to 2.3.4.
simply, there is not much to tell about.

apropos 2.3.4, both questions are really strange. until now, there are no problems with 1080p setting. try to hard reset it. try another cable, try another hdmi port on tv.
same thing for sd card. did you formatted it in box or on pc? do format card on box. then simply copy back important files. maybe you use some problematic app? or, again, install w/o card, and after instalation plug it back.
i know, it is pain in the ..., but if nothing else works...
yes, did you check if sd card have some kind of lock on it for prevent writting on it? do you use card or mini/micro sd plus adapter?

if you do not have important stuff on box, do a fresh flash with 20110111 version. it is very stabile version of OS.

apropos webcam. first, if you use HD cam, it will be very laggy pic and all will be very slow! that is fact. i have also hd cam and i must buy another one-"normal" resolution.

webcam for those boxes must be driverless.
take look at this:
We have confirmed several kinds of camera & microphone which VID PID is
oc45, 62f1 and 046d,0825?i no need driver on pc ?jcan work on Geniatech Enjoy Box.
You can connect your camera & microphone to pc, and go to device manager to check the VID PID, see below pictures. If your VID PID is the same as below, we can sure it will work.

do a check on pc. i bought model c210 and it is still little bit laggy, but nothing special.

but, if this above is ok, than there is second problem!
app "3d gallery" which is somekind of driver or trigger for camera, have problem with older versions of app. to correct this, use app "quick snap" (or it is QuickSnap, i'm not sure, look for both).
all problems will be solved. for gallery, of you still want it, use installed 3g gallery, but for all shooting use this one.

I've read also that uvc webcam should be ok for our atv1000

For example logitech pro 9000. It shoulb be compatible with mac and linux, no drivers are necessarty. Might it be right ?

read this i wrote in red. look at hardvare devices summary, look at vid pid value and you'll know everything. or, symply connect it reboot box and try!

about application - yes, i know lot of them, but quikpic is lightweight and not demanding app. i tryed many apps, and this one is my favourite. download them, install, try, try skype, and you'll see does or doesn't suit you.

Thanks Vikidroid.

I downgraded in 20120111, and it seems that my box was in an older version before i upgraded in ICS.
I also formated my SDcard.
Now everything works fine.
I can install application with my SDcard mount, and the 1080p display seems to be stable.
I appreciate this new version, with few changes, so now it becomes a good box.

I have a google account and a calendar, but when i launch the calendar application on the atv1000, there's nothing, and i don't find a way to parameter the account.
In the settings, my gmail account is already existing and the synchronization is OK for gmail and picasa but none for calendar.
Is the calendar work on the atv1000 like Geniatech says ?

Is anyone having problems watching standard definition avi's with the Geniatech? I've noticed a strange effect on some files which I would imagine is what avirex was talking about here:

http://androidforums.com/google-tv/466590-rockchip-2918-cortex-a8-versus-amlogic-8726-cortex-a9-android-tv.html#post3695636

It looks like the video is playing in surges of about 1/2 second duration. It is mostly noticeable where the background is moving which would make me think it could be a lack of processing power, but these are not very high bit-rate files and besides, it only happens on certain ones. The files play fine on my PC by the way. I've tried a few different video players and upgraded my firmware from 20111102 to 20120111 but it's still the same. I have uploaded a short clip if anyone wants to download it and take a look.

Default Problem signing custom rom

Hi guys, thank you very much for your efforts in doing Geniatech box better. I have a Geniatech ATV 310 with Android ICS, and I want to add another boot logo image (replace the green android), so I changed logo.img file, and I tried to repack the update.zip with update-packager. So I followed the steps, i removed those 3 files from META-INF folder, and I repacked and signed the new files. I restart my Geniatech box and put the sd-card inside with update.img file. After that, it tells me :
Finding update package...
Opening update package ...
Verifying update package...
E: signature verification failed

What am I doing wrong?


Thank you

I have just received ATV4000 with remote mouse (Wii type) and upgraded it to update20120420 and must say that Android 2.3.4 from factory was the best so far. The ICS upgrade has builtin TV tuner app install issues. I will revert to 2.3.4. Will keep you posted on any changes. Great forum and contributors.

first, please, do not write two posts one after another. compile them in one post.

power consumption?! omg... only for wtitting that message your pc consumed more power than box will consume for whole day.

about calendar - in settings of calendar select google calendar.

Hi,
thanks to your forum have managed to successfully upgrade to Gingerbread and I put the new market. I accidentally uninstalled the app of Facebook in the hope of being able to put the latest version. Now I'm no longer able to use either the old or the last. Could you help me?

accidentally?! really?!? that is system app and it is not so easy to "accidentally" uninstall it.... what program did you used to do that? rom manager, titanium? do you have backup? probably no?!

what's happening when you try to use FB app? do you even see its icon?

look, it is little bit confusing when you first say that you uninstalled it, and later "...i can use it...".

did you try to download it from market? did you do a fingerprint and permissions patch? that's why you probably do not see you, and system after installation says that is not comatible or avaiable...

if that is happening, try 4-5-6 pages back find "fingerprint" and "permissions fix". it is written by GIO965, and maybe myself wrote few words about it.
OR, if this is hard for you, then do a hard reset, and easy later do a market upgrade. FB should be there after re-flash.

thank you ziczac i have flashed my device with latest firmware. there is still user interface problem and screen go right down corner. when i use 1080p and 1080i resolutions screen problem appears. i changed resolution to 720p then problem solved. i think there is a problem on firmware about hdmi output and resolutions.

Great firmware...
Among various improvements, (root, centered cursor)
I noticed that issue on Network app has been solved,
the streaming is smoothly and audio/video is perfectly syncronized.
Web browsing and Youtube videos in HD are simply fantastic...

Default Spi

Do you install a new SPI since the first version of ICS ?

Thanks for your quick response, I went to simply uninstall in the market and facebook is gone forever... No special handling, or root ... I saw that there aren't working alternative applications and now I want to restore only FB and not lose everything I have installed.

I've applied only update_market_new.zip for the new Play Store, and I am very confused about these fingerprints and if I update with the file-access-to-update_full market.zip?

I've already bricked once... a second would be very annoying

My firmware is attached...

hm... your's version of box was some very clear android and w/o additional apps, and among them, FB app is NOT system app. ok. i saw few different versions and some of them have FB, tweeter and few more apps installed as system, some versions don't. if youre saying that you simply uinstalled it, than you have this second version.

if you didn't do some other modifications, than i very very suggest you to do stuf from this post:
GIO'S TWEAKS

before you can watch all on videos: VIDEO GUIDES

after that, it will be possible to find and install apps that now are unavailable or not working. i had same problem with tweetdeck.
so, permissions and .jar file are "must-to-do". fingerprint is NOT neccessary, but it gives more apps to be visible.

if you have some problems, ask here, or try directly contact member GIO965. if i'm not wrong, he's also from italy, like you, and maybe will be easy to talk directly on italian. ;-)

with this procedure you CAN'T brick device! the "tricky brick part" is only with SPI upgrade and upgrade android version from 2.1/2.2 to 2.3.4. if that go well, all of this is simply changing system files, and all can be undone with factory reset. all beside UNINSTALL with some root app.

finger cross, and hope you'll manage to install back FB. just follow the procedure!


*******

QUESTION
!!

is there admin of this topic/subtopic? i'm asking because it will be good to make some articles/posts/links as sticky. so, what to do? new subtopic or sticky?

vikidroid, i started something like that here, but i think people dont really read everything. so unless it is done sticky, most times it will be ignored.

regarding update_20120529_M1_4.0, is it truly fixed (network, audio+video sync, zoomed player, power off option)???

Hi stasik, I can tell you that, with this new release, network works correctly
(there is no need to reboot, when we close network app and successively we want
to enter again)
-Audio and video (during network streaming) are always synchronized, even if
(watching more accurately), from time to time, there is a little glitch during video playing.
-Regarding to zoomed player, I have never noticed this issue
-Power off option doesn't work (it has never worked).

@Eymerich
I suggest you to install update_full-access-to-market.zip that you can find here: Geniatech Enjoy TV
Inside Market you will find Facebook app

@Surcouf35
There's no SPI to upgrade for ICS releases

""-Power off option doesn't work (it has never worked).""-----I think this is because your ATV1000 hardware is 2*256DDR=512M RAM, power off function works fine on my ATV1000 4*128DDR=512M RAM. ATV1000 4*128DDR is the latest one and newer hardware version than 2*256DDR.

most stable ice cream version firmware. thank you ziczac. hdmi output 1080p 1080i works perfectly. there is only screen calibration problem with this firmware. i could correct this problem from settings menu. screen size a bit bigger all on the corners. there is performance inprovments also. my device getting 2192 points from antutu benchmark. gingerbreak 2.3.4 performance point of antutu was 1882. i think some usb drivers added but usb bluetooth drivers removed. my usb bluetooth was working before old ice cream versions. some new settings menu added on this firmware about phone system. may be for 3g usb modems.

i want to say one thing also about update20120529_m1_4.0 firmaware. it is about ram amount shows. gingerbreak 2.3.4 ram amount shows 414 mb with go task manager and antutu benchmark. but ice cream firmware shows total ram amount 358.8 mb. older ice cream versions has lower ram amount. in this version total ram amount groved. but my device has 512mb ram physically. may be some resources has using total ram amount.

yes, i saw that, and it is good start, at least on that way because there is no sticky. but, aside those links, it will be good to add those fixes/patches that user gio965 wrote - permissions, fingerprint, adding google.jar file...

there is so many good advices and "how-to's", but they are scattered arround.

If your GB 11.02 ( Uboot version is 20111102 ), I think you don't need to upgrade the spi.

Hi ,
a) Can anyone confirm if your Geniatech device can download torrents on SD card in standby mode . Iam running "tTorrent Lite" on my ATV4000 on 2.3.4 Gingerbread. Whenever I go into standby mode while downloading torrents, the downloading stops. I have had two standalone Media Players (non-Android) and they never stopped torrent downloads when in standby mode.

b) I can put my device into standby mode using air remote (Wii type) and also put it into shutdown mode. While in standby mode I can also wake it up for normal use. Can the latest ICS firmware do this ?

If you go to settings, and hit menu in WIFI, you can tell power management to never turn your wifi off, even in standby mode. give that a try first.

I think it' not a hardware problem , because I found a remote that turn OFF and ON my ATV 1000.
I have a HUMAX DIGI+C HD receiver and the remote of this , is capable to do this with the audio option button.

I could not find "power management' under wifi or ethernet at all. Iam using 2.3.4 until ICS is purrfarkted. Secondly I forgot totally abt my favourite lifesaver on my android mobile ... https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.miraidou.regpon.wifi&hl=en I hope this will do the trick.


Regarding Humax remote working...then it is surely a case of correct Infra Red codes being programmed on the receiver or emitter side of things.
