Hi, I'm not new to Android but really new to this TV Box thingy.

I just got the ATV310 and Im really happy with it. But there one thing that how to turn it off completely? I mean totally off so I can turn down the electric and go to sleep.

Cuz the power button on the remote as well as on the player is just get it to sleep state and turn on right away with one click. I tried to hold it down for some secs but it just doesnt off.

Is the player supposed to work that way? And Im not supposed to turn it off?

I know the player has root access but it seems like doesnt have the command to turn it off cuz none of turn off app from Play Market worked. I can reboot it though.

Thank you guys

@kekin:
I don't have that model, but my atv1000-equivalent has a power button on the front that I rarely use. My 1000 barely gets warm.

Looking at photos of the 310, it seems there is no power button.

So you can probably leave it on without affecting your electricity bill.

@jschall Yes, it does have a power button. It's the IR receiver also play as the power button. And also on the remote, there is one too.



But when I click it, it just turns off the screen, just like with an Android tablet or Android phone. But holding it down for a while doesnt bring on anything to shut the thing down

So, can anyone tell me, where I can get a good complete 4.0 Firmeware, with Google Play Store Support? Is there a update.zip which I can download, and easily update in the build in firmeware?

Thanks a lot, and by the way, great work!
if you run into troubles on this firmware try to go back down to 529..
mine does not like the 730...just goes all gaga on me and slows down to a crawl..
then starts crashing..usually almost straight away..
there is also a mod version in this thread..

you need to offer more info..
whats the output you are using? HDMI
whats the software version?
have you tested the cable with another device?
or
hate to say it..
have you reset the ROM again to see if that fixs it

I killed mine today, I think by upgrading busybox via the busybox update program..
got the big green man inside the blackbox as a mouse curser..which is painful as there is no way to get the pointer back..
I even tried to flash one of the pointer zips..didnt like it..
so had to reset the box..once again I tried the 730 versions..but my box didnt like it..
so its back to the 529..as its stable for me..
I see is a new one out..thinking of grabbing it as I am here in China so can have it up in a few days to play with..
here are the specs..

Dual Core ATV520 TV box also has ARM Cortex A9*2 CPU, frequency is 1.2GHz-1.5GHz, RAM is 1G,built in 4G flash memory.

I'm using hdmi for everything video and sound, i get video fine, and till yesterday night i had audio fine too, i upgraded to updateM3_20120827.zip lastnight and it was working quite well (only netflix wouldnt load) i have tested the cable with my blueray and it works fine, and i brought the m3 box to another TV and had the same problem, i have restored factory defaults and nothing, i have reflashed the last zip file, and nothing, i wonder if there's an internal damage but it kind of baffles me that if something was damaged then why i get video over hdmi but no sound.

As i said under the sound settings i only see pcm digital sound nothing and i can change that to raw but it wont return me the sound control or bars that allowed me to adjust and i have no audio in any application.

can only suggest go back in the software to the version that was working and see if it comes back..
but before you do..make a few wipes via the recovery panel..you can go back a few pages and find my post and grab the app from market
that will boot you into it..
its painful we dont have a proper TARP or CMW recovery where we can do wipes ourselves and have a bit more control..

You are correct, AirPlay is an Apple TV program however there are some similar apps:

Although not AirPlay, the following site lists similar apps

There are similar apps from an Internet search

I had the same problem of the big green man as a mouse, someone told me not to use busybox you don't really need it, first you need to wipe data/factory defaults & wipe cache partition & re-install the ROM (old or new) again because the normal uninstall doesn't remove it completely.

yes, seems to be the case..
I went down that track as wanted to download and install a program..
for some reason it would not let me install anything off any of sdcard or USB..
tried the same file off the same Samba to two other android devices and proved that the file was fine..
so I tried a fix permissions script to see if it would fix it...no joy..
thus it was a fresh flash..and reset up

@Dual_HD:
I still don't understand what you want to do.
1) What Android TV box do you have?
2) What Android Smartphone do you have?
3) Do you have video or movie files on your Android smartphone that you want to view on your Android TV box?

If 3) is ''YES'', then check out iMediaShare and Skifta on the Google Play market.

As I am in China I rang the company on the new dual core they are advertising.. But at the moment it is not in production. Also as a oem supplier they won't sell to individuals.

I also sent them a email asking for kernel source release so that we can use droidmote.. But as yet no reply..
If you guys could also send them emails to add the 'uinput' module into the kernel they might get the hint that it is a desired add on.

Here's a copy of the email if others want to send it to their sales and support email..

Quote:
MOST VERY IMPORTANT !!!!!!!

3: Kernal Sources - I see on this box it it limited to 800mhz with only one scaling governor allowed to be used.. I use Antutu CPU master to set this normally on my other tablets and phones. Also CPUspy does not work..

Can you release the kernel sources so we can work on this ourselves to improve performance of these box's?

the other reason we want to get this is so that we can run DroidMote Server & Client

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details? id=org.videomap.droidmoteserver&feature= search_result#?t= W251bGwsMSwxLDEsIm9yZy52aWRlb2 1hcC5kcm9pZG1vdGVzZXJ2ZXIiXQ..

as we need the UINPUT MODULE IN THE KERNEL LIKE MOST ANDROID DEVICES

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php? t=1292627 http://www.videomap.it/droidmote-faq.html Please look at no 24,25,26 Links to the discussion with the developer on your box's and software.. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php? p=31257698&postcount=901 http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php? p=31453052&postcount=917 http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php? p=31575803&postcount=946 http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php? p=31659450&postcount=965

If we can get this going on your box's then you will make many, many people happy.

I also have this frustrating problem but is does not seem to appear with my Android tablet.

I think that the problem is with either the box hardware/chip and/or its dependency on the special version of FlashPlayer 10.2 required which I understand is a special "software accelerated" version.

Both point to a deficiency in the hardware/chip which there may not be a software fix.

Forgive my question, I have been without my ATV1000 and turn me away from the subject.

As if I have the model or the model M1 M3?.

The one I have has 512 MB ​​of RAM, but I do not know if I have the M1 or M3 and an update for each model.

Thank you.

@DualHD:

As far as I know, you only have two options.

1) Get an Apple TV for $100, and Airplay video to it from your iPad.

2) Get an Android smartphone or tablet for $200-$300, and play video from it to your ATV510 using iMediaShare or Skifta.

ok, Here's an update on that email.

Questions
1-a: How to boot in to recovery?
What is the combination needed to do this from power on?
Quote:
press and hild the upgrade/reset button on the box, then plug in power adapter, hold that button for about 5 seconds, normally you will enter into recovery mode(upgrading screen)
b: Is there a superwipe you use for wiping all partitions before install a new Rom?
c: Can a extracted recoveryblob - CWM recovery be loaded to this box via ADB?
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1672082
Something similar to this?
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/14174333/Barsik%20CWMRecovery.zip
Quote:
I am sorry we don't have that.
2: USB debugging mode - which USBport to use and what is the combination needed to do this from power on? refer to this thread on how we used to do it for the flytouch..
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1074251
Quote:
our box has no usb port for usb debugging, you can use ADB via ethernet or wifi, just need to enable the usb debugging option in setting->developer option.
MOST VERY IMPORTANT !!!!!!!


3: Kernal Sources - I see on this box it it limited to 800mhz with only one scaling governor allowed to be used..
I use Antutu CPU master to set this normally on my other tablets and phones.
Also CPUspy does not work..
Can you release the kernel sources so we can work on this ourselves to improve performance of these box's?
the other reason we want to get this is so that we can run
DroidMote Server & Client

Quote:
we have source code, but I am sorry it is not opened.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.videomap.droidmoteserver&feature=se arch_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsIm9yZy52aWRlb21hcC5 kcm9pZG1vdGVzZXJ2ZXIiXQ..
as we need the UINPUT MODULE IN THE KERNEL LIKE MOST ANDROID DEVICES

Quote:
if it is needed for you, we can add it into the kernel and send to you, please let me know the current firmware version of your ATV3000, go to setting->about device, you will find uboot and build number.
So now its a wait to see what I get sent back to me and see if I can get Droidmote going.. Will post back as soon as I know something..

once we get it confirmed working on one..and if they don't do an update across the platforms..
we can pull the module out and then it should be a simple matter of a script that can be loaded on boot..

so first off we need to see if they can get it working first..
let you know more after I get something back from them..

Today I updated my ATV300 player to M1 Android 2.3 20120606, and it was sucessfully, after reboot i stuck on the EnjoyTV logo, and nothing happened.
When i try to go to the android recovery with th reset button, the led turn to blue, after red, and nothing happened, only the black screen.
On the box it was android 2.3 but from 2011. Boot version was okay, when i checked it.

What can i do? Thank you!

Default Droidmote working on ATV3000

Zulu,
is da man..
Got it going finally with this uinput.ko on the Geniatech M1 ATV3000 Android 4.0 20120529 so this means you guys should be able to do it..

These instructions should be up over on Droidmotes forum soon.. and I will link once it approved..
DroidMote Server and Client Support Forum • View topic - uinput required for Amlogic M1
Have fun crew and report back with games and programs that work on our box with this..


1: First off download the “uinput.ko” from this link..
uinput for Amlogic vermagic = 2.6.34 preempt mod_unload modversions ARMv7
http://www.videomap.it/forum/download/file.php?id=28
or from the Droidmote FAQ no:31
uinput-amlogic-2.6.34.tar

2: Using a file explorer , i.e-esfile explorer, root explorer – (note on our box’s at this moment using Solid explorer for root operations is not a good idea as you have to upgrade the busybox and we have found problems with doing this.. refer to the little green man curser problem )
Go in to /system/lib/ and make a folder called “modules” so it should look like this.
/system/lib/modules

3: Copy the “uinput.ko” that you downloaded in to this folder

4: Set permissions - assign 644 permissions to this file – refer to this link if you don’t know what the permissions mean.. How to change permissions (chmod) of a file « HostGator.com Support Portal
Using esexplorer – navigate to the “uinput.ko” file,
hold the mouse on the file until a list of operations comes up,
scroll to last option “Properties” click you will see “permissions”,
click on “change” and change to “User – Read, write, execute and Group – Read.”
Then click ok..just make sure that your modules folder permissions also are “ rwx-rwx-rwx”

5: Then Terminal to do – a: su
b: insmod /system/lib/modules/uinput.ko

Don’t reboot-
Load up the droidmote server and off you go.. that’s how it worked for me..

Note: if you are in country that has a block on Market and you get “ can not authorize” message.. then it means that your internet is blocked to Market..its not a Droidmote problem..but your internet problem.. so complain to your government.. haha.. but seriously there is a work around.. this is how I do it when I get it..
I run it through a VPN connection using this off my laptop..Your Hotspot, Your Way - Connectify

Default Manually flash a new recovery

Szunti,
I am no expert with this rom, but here's a few options..
1: Follow these instructions..
Geniatech M1 Android 2.3 20120606 Version Upgrading Instruction
Quote:
Download the file and don’t unzip, rename to update.img, all are small characters.
And, please check you did not hide the extension name of the file on PC.
1.If you are using android 2.3 (as long as the Uboot version is 20111102 or later one in setting->about device), please copy the file into SD card and insert to the box. Then, go to setting->privacy->update system to update firmware directly, the box will restart automatically after finished.
2: Or you could try to pull out the update.apk from the ICS and see if it will install on your Rom..Then you can try to load the update.zip with a fresh install of the Rom you want to use..

3: Or you could try to do it manually this way.. But note that these instructions are for the TF101 but you could adapt them to suit this box, you just need to work out which partition to push it too..I have done this before on the TF101 and works fine..

Default DroidMote Auto Load Uinput script

Once again thanks to Zulu, we know have a auto load script for the Uniput.ko..

unrar the attachment,

Use a script manager program to call the script on boot.

in script manger flag this as root,
flag as executable
and say to script manager to start it on boot.

So now you don't have to worry about loading the insmod commands at boot.

start-uinput.rar - 132 bytes

confirmed working

Thank you for your answer.
Unfortunatelly method #1 not working without the recovery menu.
Tommorrow i will try the method #2.
But i think the #3 will be good only. But it seems hard for me. But i will try it. CWM will be good for this device?
Thank you!

Honestly, i dont know if you can push a CWM recovery to it.. It might be better to see if you can extract the recovery from the blob and push the one they use..

There is a post a but further back about a link to xda on some guy working on a tab version but as yet i have not found suitable instructions..

Maybe someone else could chime in with some help..

I cannot load the module, dmesg throws me the following:
[ 3035.196000] uinput: version magic '2.6.34 preempt mod_unload modversions ARMv7 ' should be '2.6.34V2.0.0-67-g215089c-dirty mod_unload modversions ARMv7 '

So it seems that i need a kernel with the same version magic as that...
Any idea of how i can make it work?

Thanks

Alpuy,
You might have to keep playing with different uinputs to see if you can find one to work with what you are running..
Just make sure you are doing the permissions right on the folder you make and the file you put in and hopefully you will find one that will work..
I have 3 Android devices that this works on..
Transformer TF101, HTC EVO and now got it working on this ATV3000

My Kernel just says.. 2.6.34 Fri May 25 16:01:52 HKT 2012
I am running the ICS-Stock M1 20120529 - Android 4.0.3
Uboot: V1.3.6-25-g002d73d-dirty(20120719.180233)
Recovery V1.3.0-87-ge46e804-dirty(20120605.160540)

Thanks but I don't agree with you, did you try AirplayDMR apk? which turns your ATVbox to A**le TV! you can stream your movies on your ipad/iphone to your ATV1000/ATV510!

Hi, I am new to this forum and to Android TV boxes in general. I have been looking for some android based box that will allow me to easily play movies from lan, external usb hdd and if possible process TV signal (DVB-T). I stumbled across Geniatech Enjoy TV boxes, but I am kinda lost in their specification - I am not sure what exactly I need and what not. this is what I want:
- smooth FullHD (1080p) playback; if it plays "Samsung Demo Oceanic Life" without stuttering then it's ok
- ability to play videos from local NAS (access to LAN) and from external usb HDD
- receive DVB-T signal (even if it doesn't I guess Geniatech PT115e would do the trick)
- would be great to have some sort of YouTube player in there as well
- HDMI output
- it has to be silent
- would be awesome if it came in black

Originally I was looking into ATV330B, mainly because it has built-in DVB-T receiver but I am a bit sceptical how it handles high profile-high bitrate h264 1080p videos (seeing it has only 800MHz CPU).
Maybe ATV520 Enjoy TV Dual Core Nano 4 would be better (with DualCore 1.5GHz A9 CPU), but I would need to get Geniatech PT115e for receiving DVB-T signal. Plus I am not really into white box and I am not sure how much would it cost comparing to ATV330B. Smoothness of 1080p playback is highest priority but I don't want to go over 150$ for TV box. Ideally I would like to keep it in <100e (~128$) price range.
That being said, I am having difficulties finding out pricing on Geniatech TV boxes, amazon and ebay have rather small and a bit outdated sales. Is there any official Geniatech internet store (for EU region)?

Thanks for any help
