Also I have a feeling that it won't be long before there will be a CWM type recovery floating round as there is already one for the M3 box's.. Thanks to Matt over at the G-box forum.G-Box Official XBMC HQ | Topic: [UPDATED] Testers Needed

Also as a note I will post findings to xbmcandroid on the ATV1200 so that we dont get this thread off topic too much on the older box's.. So see you there if you have upgraded..

Also on a side note.. I have pulled my Wifi antenna off the ATV3000 and are looking at replacement of it when get time so that I can run some tests on it to if it is a cheap shit one and would make a difference to those that might want to do the same.. I have actually pulled a wifi router apart and grabbed the antenna off that.. but just haven't had time to solder the connections on and plug it back it to test. But I got a feeling this may help as its actually a plug and play type part.. and wouldn't surprise me that Geniatech to save money put on a cheap as chips one to reach the price points.

Hi werewolferx, I'm sorry but I don't remember of this fix for google calendar.
I could suggest to try with the latest version from the playstore:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.calendar&feature=sea rch_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsImNvbS5nb29nbGUuYW5k cm9pZC5jYWxlbmRhciJd

Default component output

has anybody used the component out on a mygica atv1200? i swear the blue and green are reversed. i've tried 2 sets of cables. i hooked from mygica to computer and tv. both will not display until i put blue cable in green and green in blue on the mygica box.. and obviously when i do this it messes up the colors. has anyone else noticed this? i tried taking out the hdmi as well and got the same results. i'd love it if someone could confirm i'm either right, or i simply have a bad box. thanks. i've also tried with different firmwares. including the 3/26. i'm now on 1/15.
UPDATE... i'm now convinced that my box, or ALL mygica1200 boxes have a component output issue. i took my 2 sets of component cables and connected them from my cable box to my tv. both work flawlessly. so i eliminated the fact that i had faulty cables. i have a hauppage hd pvr hooked up to my computer for recording purposes. the pvr has component(rgb) input. this is why it's important that the mygica can output properly. which in my case, it doesn't. i took a screenshot of the app drawer. the facebook icon is orange/reddish. this is because i have to put blue and green in reversed in the mygica just to get it to display anything. if i connect rgb properly, i get no display at all. i got mine from nikingstore.com. should i email them? or mygica? i'm not sure i can return it. i'll have to check my order date and their return policy. but i would love if another user could confirm that it's just my box or all of them. if i use a geniatech firmware, in display settings i cannot change from yuv to cvbs. but in a firmware from mygica i can select either in the menu. both firmwares output rgb in reverse color. the home screen colors are flipped as in normally the homescreen is orange on the left and blue on the right. when i get it working with my computer, i see blue on the left and orange on the right. i'm either goin nuts or there is a real problem here.

Hi guys,

I´m using ATV1000 on ICS 4.01 (update20120730), wich XMBC version will work best? I´ve tried to use the lastet one (frodo 12.1) and video is very laggy, audio issues and can´t turn on hw acceleration on Video Playback setup menu.

Also, can you recommend another videoplayer app?

Hi all,
Need to share my story before popping a question.
So, I recently bought a "rebranded" ATV300 with Froyo 2.2 and 256 RAM. (And just received a replacement, because I "accidentaly" bricked it).
It was bricked because I jumped directly from my 2.2 to ICS without learning the steps on early pages.
Now, I've managed to updated it to 2.3.
Learning from both experience and by reading the "how to", my question is:
- Can I update it to ICS without bricking it again?
- Is the 20120730_M1_4.0 usable and stable to use on my 256 RAM ATV 300?

Thanks for sharing any info guys

Yes, once you have 2.3, you should be able to upgrade to 4.0 with no problem.

However, I didn't have good performance from ICS when I upgraded on the ATV 1000.

Default ICS issues with ATV1000

I've updated to the ICS release looks fine and plays video ok HOWEVER the video is laggy and audio stutters for 720p and 1080p sometimes its ok for a few seconds but then the crackle comes back to the audio etc..

I've looked at the Movie player app and it is the SAME version on the M2 release that fixes these issues: Its a problem with the ICS M1 build not the app.

I've flipped back to GB release as it can play video without ANY issues.

The ICS release was otherwise very polished. I notice on the the latest M2 release even the bug with the ethernet MAC has been fixed!

Hope Giantech backport these fixes from the M2 release to the older M1 that the ATV1000 uses.

The M2 release on the Giantech web site will not work on the ATV1000 as the M2 is for the M2 chipset that replaced the older M1 that the ATV1000 is based on.

Default Atv1000 m1

Hi
I have ATV1000 M1 box with the latest geniatech ICS release.
I'd like to use XBMC but video is very laggy over SMB with XBMC's built in player.
There is an apk called SmbWrapper which created in order to stream SMB sources into http stream and it will exchange default player as well for any kind of mediaplayer installed on my system but..
It's just wont work on ATV 1000 :S
It's working on my HTC One....
Strange that I can play any kind of video with ATV1000's built in SMB browser together with the built in video player or with MXPlayer... 1080p videos are a bit laggy still but I can handle it via overcklocking with CPUMaster.
So.. question what is the ATV1000's default video player's apk name?
I'll give a try to modifiy the playercorefactory.xml in order to play smb with HW decoding...
thx for the help

If you look in the .IMG files that you flash as firmware (you can rename them as .ZIP and open them to see what's inside there is a VideoPlayer.apk file in the GB release these were a single file in the ICS release (ver 1.73 from memory I've gone back to GB as the ICS build was laggy for higher bit rate 720 video - Shame was fine other thant this. Gianantech fixed this bug on their M2 build, but not yet on the M1 build. Interestingly all the ICS VideoPlayer.apk are the same for M1 and M2 (I compared the VideoPlayer.apk and ODexed file) so its a tweak in the build not the app that fixes the bug.

How did you overclock?

Might be worth trying the older APK from GB on M1 ICS release?

Oh what I find works is to install ESFile Explorer (free app) and then click the network tab and scan for new servers, it should find your SMB servers. If not you can enter the IP address. Once connect to the SMB mount point get to the file and select it. If you click the file it will say not support etc.. Don't worry just "LONG PRESS" (hold the mouse button down over the files for 3 or 4 seconds) a new menu pops up select OPEN AS then select VIDEO then a pop will ask which player to use select the System player for the Gianatech and your can watch the SMB mounted file on the stock player!

Hi,

for sure not before October unless something changes. Amlogic will start deliver their chips to ODMs in October (info directly from Amlogic).

ABC iView and Others Catchup TV Channels

(Probably will only work in Australia)

As yet there is no Android app for ABC iView; however it and others are available via XBMC.

There is, however, an app for Plus7 on the Play Store.

Firstly you need to install XBMC 12.0 Frodo, “xbmc-20130314-8c2fb31-Frodo-armeabi-v7a.apk”

Download it from here:

Index of /pub/xbmc/test-builds/android

I have trialled 12.2 Frodo and 13.0 Frodo (draft) versions but have had problems so at this stage I recommend the 12.0 version.

I am running ICS version 4.0.3 Build Number 20120739.

You will also need the zip file “repository.googlecode.xbmc-catchuptv-au-1.3.zip”.

Download and copy to your SD card – do not unzip.

I have uploaded the file to

repository.googlecode.xbmc-catchuptv-au-1.3.zip

Further you must be connected to the Internet when you install the zip file into XBMC.

Once you have installed XBMC, run it and navigate to “SYSTEM” and click on it to open.

Navigate to “Add-ons” and click on it.

Navigate to “Install from zip file” and click on it.

Select “External Storage” and navigate to where you installed “repository.googlecode.xbmc-catchuptv-au-1.3.zip”. Click on it and a few seconds later you will be advised of its installation – been “Enabled”.

Now select “Get Add-ons” and select “XBMC CatchupTV Au Add-ons”.

Select “Music Add-ons” and click on “AFL Radio” and “Install” to install it and the Add on will be downloaded and be “Enabled”

Back out one step and click on Video Add-ons.

Click on the ones you want to install and install them as for “AFL Radio” above.

There should be the following Add-ons:

ABC iView
ABC News 24
AFL Video
Channel Ten Catchup TV
NRL Video
Plus7
SBS Catchup TV


When they are all “Enabled” back out to the first screen and navigate to “Videos”.

Select “Add-ons” and the Add-on you want.

Simply follow the menus to what you want.

There are a lot of XBMC Add-ons available, here is a start:

Unofficial add-on repositories - XBMC


Enjoy!

Hi Enviro, its been awhile since I have been on the forum, but moving from plex to more xbmc and was curious if you were suffering from any video lag on your version. I am on ICS 4.0.3 build 20120730 and debating an update for xbmc and hopefully a smoother running netflix. Also if you have the links to those files that would be awesome. Oddly the only XBMC apks Ive been able to get running are the futeko ones. Trouble is its very buggy where only certain addons work. Hope you can help.

Yes there is some video lag on the ATV 1000 clones but very little if any on my MX1 dual core Android TV dongle.

I really only posted this because there were people looking for ABC (Australia) Catchup TV.

As for apks, I don't run then from XBMC yet, that's my next project, when I get my MX1 back from repairs - dodgy micro USB sockets.

No worries, I am using the ATV1000 still and wanted to keep it in good use. Looks like I got XBMC working with the futeko download and no lag. Just a shame all the addons other than sportdevil work properly. Ohh well. In case anyone gets stuck and stumble upon this conversation. Google amp1000 xbmc and dl that imgupdate with the netflix update and the futeko xbmc. XBMC is really fast and I have gotten channel 1 icefilms running without problems. Hope it helps someone

Hi guys anyone been able to get XBMC on the Geniatech ATV1000 working with the 1channel, icefilms and mainly sportsdevil addons working? If so can you point me in the directions of your build. I am on ICS 4.0.3 build 20120730

My ATV1000 has been good to me, but If I can get XBMC with the addons, plex and netflix I could transform the kids room without buying something else I have all addons except sportsdevil working it just hangs at 87% then crashes any help would be greatly appreciative. Ohh the only XBMC that seems to work is the futeko xbmc on mine.

Cheers
Update: Answered my own question on a last ditch effort, sportsdevil works although a bit of a lag, but you can watch a game if you really needed to. I used the Pivos xbmc apk

I have pulled my Wifi antenna off the ATV3000 and are looking at replacement of it when get time so that I can run some tests on it to if it is a cheap shit one and would make a difference to those that might want to do the same.. I have actually pulled a wifi router apart and grabbed the antenna off that.. but just haven't had time to solder the connections on and plug it back it to test. But I got a feeling this may help as its actually a plug and play type part.. and wouldn't surprise me that Geniatech to save money put on a cheap as chips one to reach the price points.
As a followup on this, here are a few pictures of the Mod.. Wifi is reception is cooking now..

hello to all after long time!
first, @faoit - i'm also interested in that. there is some apps on market, but i must say that i didn't "play" with them. so, it will be nice to hear other users.

now, my problem. i have ATV1000, and longer time i'm not using him - i bought newer box. but, now i have one idea how to use it.

as owners of that box knows, SD card is simply inserted in card reader, no "break" it is easy to pull it out, even with some plain manipulation it can pop out. and after some time and numberless inserting and pulling, contacts become loose.
and second - it simply sticks out the box! why they didn't make deeper slot?!?!
so, as you know, inside boy there are two USB slots. one is populated with keyboard/mouse receiver, and second one is free.

my idea is: i want to plug plain USB stick into that other, free slot and use it as/instead SD card.

and that is all. idea. but i'm trying to find way to do it, but no success.

so, is there any way to automount that usb stick at the boot (or during the boot) and use it INSTEAD SD card. NOT paralel, but INSTEAD SD card????

i suppose that there is some mnt/name_of_device/trick, but i'm not good at linux stuff.

please, can somebody help me?? there are some apps, but or they are not supported or do not do what i want. or better said, apps firstly need sd card to work, and AFTER installation (maybe) to mount usb.

and, just for info, OS i 2.3.4. do not ask why that old OS? simply because ICS is laggy, it is slow and i'm not sattisfied with it. rather slower and uglyer than fancy and laggy.

thanks in advance!!!

1.Download this file Download MT ATV510B 20130610.zip from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way
2.Unzip and copy all files to TF card(only support TF card/sd card) root directory.
3.Insert to the box.
4.Use toothpick or other thing to press and hold the upgrade/reset button on the back of the box, then, plug in power adapter.
5.Keeping press for 5 seconds, loosen the button and it is eraseing system.
6.About 1min later, you will see upgrading screen
7.It is will reboot automatically after finished.

There is Google apps access..just run play store then sign into your account..then download what you want..

If you are anything like me..I like to have the bottom bar and on this build they have taken it away again.. So a good way around it is using a little program from a XDA developer called LMT.. I am using the pie and centered to the bottom..working great


http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1330150

Be careful with this new update to 4.2.2

My box is soft brick now as it didn't shut down properly from using XBMC to scan the media to the Lib. I am waiting on support @ Geniatech to get back to me with a fix.

Thanks

EDIT: Problem resolved.
The issue was that I had the 0.00B internal storage bug.
Symptoms: Changes to settings wouldn't survive after reboot, I couldn't boot to recovery mode to reflash.
Cause: I had stupidly tried to install Busybox so that the Hide Bar app would work. I accepted the normal install of Busybox to /system/bin which messed with loading the recovery partition. Presumably this error arose from Busybox already existing in /system/xbin in the update_MX_20130115.img thus causing the conflict.
Solution: Used QtADB_0.8.1_Windows to establish WiFi connection to box from PC and replaced recovery.img. Booted to recovery. Factory wipe and reset. Reflashed update_spi_MX_20130115.img and then update_MX_20130115.img. Established WiFi/WAN connection. Updated kernel online. Success!
Lessons learnt: don't install Busybox unless you know what you are doing; Busybox is already installed in /system/xbin in latest firmware.
Time spent trying to restore box: 8 hours research, 2 hours connected to the box, not to mention the hours in lost sleep due to fear of bricking the box!
While I wait for Geniatech to get back to me, I might have to try this.. As it is for sure soft bricked due to this lastest 4.2.2 upgrade

I haven't used my ATV1100, M1 box for a while and I have just gone back to use it and it won't/can't connect to a wifi network.

I have rebooted a couple of times and reinstalled update20120730 a couple of times but it's the same problem.

When I go to wifi settings it seems that the default setting is 'wifi off'. When I click to turn wifi on it looks busy for ages but nothing happens. If I leave that screen then come back to it wifi shows as being on but won't scan for networks and no nearby networks pop up.

What's happened??

ok - it (Airplay) does work, it just doesn't support mirroring from a Macbook. Tested from iTunes and from the Youtube app on an iPhone and it worked fine.

Does anyone have a mirror for the latest (August) ATV1200 firmware?

Also where to get the latest firmware for the ATV300 (M1) chipset?

Thanks for any help.

Not from the device itself, that's digital HDMI only. You might be able to get analog output from whatever you plug it into, like an A/V amp.

...thanks for taking the time to post mikedt Do you (or anyone?) know what the RCA plugs at the back are for? Are they input only then? I since turned up some sketchy info online that an RCA / Composite type output might be possible by pressing a rest type recessed button on back of unit whilst inserting power lead which then puts unit into a kinda BIOS mode where the output can be swapped between analogue & digital. Not had the guts to try that yet incase I reset the box instead If I could find the same info elsewhere I'd be more confident

Cry ATV1100 lost HiDTV after upgrade

Hi guys,

I have a brand new ATV1100 Enjoy TV box; today, right after wifi configuration, the system asked me to update, so I did

After the upgrade, the HiDTV application was there no more, and I can't find a way to reinstall it; now, I can't watch dvb-t

I searched for the .apk but every version I install tell me it can't find usb dongle (sure, it's integrated!)..

Then I tryed to upgrade to older versions, 4.0.1 and 2.3 which have HiDVT bundled, from geniatech website but the Upgrade App didn't recognize the update.img (I think 'cause is an older firmware), and I don't know how to flash reboot

Can someone please help me?

Thank you,

Sanjuras

Whoa, I solved

I've read of many people with the same problem, so here's the way to go:

Geniatech M3 Android 4.0 20121208 Upgrading Instruction

the interesting part is this:
Quote:
If your box is ATV1100BT, ATV1100BS, please download and install below DVBplayer app to watch TV programs.
www.geniatech.com/down-eng/androidtvbox/DVBplayer_M3_2.0.6.zip
I installed every apk in the zip and DVBPlayer came back

Thanks everyone, bye!

hi , i want to ask something

i have an atv2000 but since the ics firmware came out i didn't use it (because of the audio lag)

i have tried the firmware for pivos (linux) and its seems ok but i can't get video/audio from the rca plugs (the hdmi was ok but i want to connect it to an older tv)

so anyone knows if it's possible to have audio/video from rca with pivos firmware or if there is any android firmware for atv2000 which is OK for movies ? (using xbmc)

thanks

Anyone who knows a way to start up (boot) the Geniatech MyGica ATV1200 with A/V output signal, without having to connect through hdmi first?

It seems you have to change the video output mode in the settings, but then you need a hdmi input monitor/tv first, and I haven't got one (that's why I bought the ATV1200 in the first place, for its A/V-out feature).

Is there an alternative way of changing this setting, e.g. via the LAN-port?

And am I right that there is no A/V-signal at all, if you don't set it first? I get black screen, no sound, green led on ATV1200 front.

In the meantime I have learned from Geniatech support that a workaround to get A/V output from the ATV1200 is not existent, and in the default setup there is no signal at all on the A/V-outputs, there's only HDMI. Alas!
