The black RCA is a coaxial SPDIF digital audio output. To connect video via YPbPr (known as 'video components') you need to plug the three cables to a TV that can handle this high-quality analog signal. Composite video (just 1 RCA) is apparently not supported by the device probably due to the low quality it think link provides and the lack of a dedicated rca output for this.

BTW, can anyone confirm which is the dongle DVB-T that comes with the ATV2000?

there are issues with web browser and other pieces, but i am really happy with the media support, as this is the main purpose for me. and because its constantly updated, i am sure most formats will be supported.
as nor NAS, all forums are complaining about that. so far only audio can be streamed from samba. i think it will take some time for video streaming, especially for 720/1080
This is because the Amlogic supplied video player has hardware acceleration enabled, the other players on the Android market don't so fall back to the CPU which isn't strong enough to decode video on it's own.

The other players on the Android market would have to add support for Amlogic chipsets to enable hardware decoding.


P.S. thanks for the beta 2.3 firmware kgdteam, it runs very well but a bit buggy in the marketplace.

Kgdteam if you have contacts within Geniatech/MyGica see if you can get them to update their media player to support DLNA servers or SMB file servers.

And this one is pretty far out but if you could get them to help port GeeXbox to Amlogic players interest in their players would sky rocket within the XBMC community as these players are almost perfect for XBMC.

Thanks for this wonderful news! I guess I can use it in the ATV1000 or ATV3000 maybe installing the provided apk for HiDTV or waiting for the official drivers for Android.

Yocee, if you lack HDMI or Video componentes inputs in your TV you can find easily cheap adapters from components to composite, just google around.

the program used with DVB-T is called HiDTV http://www.geniatech.com/down-eng/Androidtvbox/MyGicaHiDTV_V_1.1.6b.zip

another thing, due to firmware or hardware, its hard for me to turn the unit on. sometimes its working, sometimes not. after turning on, the leds are on (blue & orange) and on tv i see "input 720p 60 mhz" but the screen is black. i noticed that if i keep pressed the back black button for a little bit while powering on, it works ok.
another thing that happened, while started to watch a youtube video, everything went black. i could hear the sound for a bit, but then nothing worked, and a hard reboot required. looking forward firmware update

We have no contact with them, but when you leave the official firmware 2.3, added many improvements, especially for network, samba, cifs, DLNA, etc ...

Have you tried factory data reset?
(You must go settings--->privacy and choose factory data reset)
I resolved my problems, different from yours, in this way.

When i see my picture from mainboard, i found two intresting point.
One is the near of right left corner of the main cpu. 9 hole. 2 big, and 7 small soldering point. Is Sata port. i Find a bad motherboard, and change the port, to use sata hdd.
The second is the bottom of the coax rca female connector. is a 3 pin. I think, 2 side is ground, and the center anything. I hope this is component video, but missing some parts. i try this tomorrow.

So you can go from components (android box) to scart with the Hama, and then from scart to composite with the belkin maybe?

No, it is two different thing. Scart is composit, rgb, svideo and audio signals only.

Component is 3 pair rca, for high resolution analog signal.

Hi, at this moment, 20110804 and 20110909 are more stable firmwares (I prefer the first, because it has not flash player inbuilt).
But have you particular problems with your actual firmware?
If not, I suggest you to wait for a next, more stable, 2.3.4 release.
Which is the firmware installed in your device? Have you a backup copy of it?
If not, you must consider that after upgrade, you will not able to come back to your actual firmware
(but you will remain to the last installed).
You will find the links in the first page of this thread.

Ok, I get it. For the price of a expensive active components/composite adapter you can go for a new TV with HDMI.

It is not worthy of using composite output. For the resolution of composite output is only 720X576i, for video playback , this resolution is ok. but for web surfrying, it is too low. You will be disappointed if you get one composite output.

As szemo77 says, probably we must wait only for few days...
I know the beta release update20111010_Kgdtea_beta1.zip and I already wrote that it was really unstable.
In the meantime (if you want), you can always return to an earlier stable firmware, you must only remember
(for a correct installation) to make factory data reset.

i would recommend HDMI over composite cables. composite cable are well capable of transmitting 720p, and over long distances. but for some reason on my plasma tv, when i use composite, i can notice horizontal thin lines on black background, something like noise. i tried different cables but the same result. over hdmi the black is dark clear black with no noise. the only disadvantage of hdmi is not all audio is streamed, but that is not problem for me as i use L/R stereo cable for my speakers anyway.

i noticed that if i have both composite and hdmi connected to device, it streams over composite first, and dont stream anything over hdmi. so if u want to use hdmi, unplug the composite cables not to create confussion

Yeah, the device is meant for HD, to get a proper quality HDMI is the way.

I can't find the T119 USB DVB-T dongle. Does anyone know? Also, have you noticed the led display present in the ATV4000?

Hi sku||, first of all, you must rename your earlier firmware to update.zip, then copy it into an sdcard,
insert the sdcard inside your device, press and mantain pressed the button under your device and, at the same time, press the power button, few seconds and automatically the procedure of upgrade (or downgrade) will start... try and let me know

It's going hardcore time. People just read instructions carefully. Key to successfully perform is the upgrade bootloaders (SPI), then new firmware.

i noticed that if i have both composite and hdmi connected to device, it streams over composite first, and dont stream anything over hdmi. so if u want to use hdmi, unplug the composite cables not to create confussion

You mixed two very different thing. Composite, and Component. You use for hd tv component cables (3 channel). I want Composit, 1 cable.

Please, plug your usb tuner to windows, and write down here the found hardware data.

Yocee, u r right, i confused 2 things, i meant component, the 3 cable type. the 1 cable type, yellow, is the worst quality u can get. i use linux, but i have an old laptop and will write harware info for you

Success with upgrading to 2.3. just a little hint: in step 2, i could not move to option 3 using the remote control it came with, so before loading the reset mode i connected a usb keyboard, then u could select option 3 and carry on. another note is that once u start, ur box wont work untill u finish the whole process, as it will keep asking for update.

i didnt install anything except the firmware update as mention here.
also noticed that after playing a few videos on youtube, the sound disappears (via hdmi) after 2-3 seconds after video start. on/off and sound is back on youtube videos, but dont know for how long....
if the sound issue is not gonna be fixed, i ll have to downgrade, as i use L/R audio outputs as some audio do not go via hdmi (this is to do with hdmi cable itself)

HELP! I followed all the steps to update SPI20110907 then SPI20111028 and finally renamed firmware update20111028 to "update.img" and reset to update, but it kept saying ' can't mount sdcard/update.img'. No matter how many times I tried reset and even changed different sdcard, it wouldn't update. Now I cant update new firmware or downgrade back to old one. The box just kept reboot to recovery mode when reset. Can somebody pls shed some light. Thks

karmakama, i have no idea. every thing went ok on my box. when u install the firmware, before turning on, insert the sd card inside.
format SD, download again the update, maybe it was corrupted during downloading.
did u check if SPI20111028 was installed successfully. try updating it again if nothing else works

That firmware update is very confusing, there are two different SPI updates listed the 2011-10-28 and the 2011-09-07, the Android 2.3 PDF instructions initially references the 09-07 update which is a separate download but then link to the 10-28 update in the PDF.

The 10-28 update appears to contain SPI updates bundled together as one update for various players unlike the 09-07 update.

I tried the 10-28 update and it would not update my ATV2000 running the kdgteam beta firmware.

Incidentally the kdgteam beta firmware online firmware update appears to show an update available but I've not tried installing it yet. I think I will wait for the kgdteam firmware updates they at least seem to work for updating the player properly.

with kgd online updates, it always updates to the same version, which is a bug. with 2.3 version, there is online update option, but u need to have sd inserted, i think it saves the previous firmware to it, or could download new firmware to it. i am not sure why it requires sd for update.

any one had installed 2.3 and checked the L/R audio outputs??

p.s. is there a way to check the version of the device? at the back i have a sticker : m3v2240000512. does it mean its version 2.2 with 512 mb???

Okay figured it out here is ATV2000 update process (thanks to kdgteam), also may be different on other models but reset is on left hand bottom of ATV2000 not at the back so unplug power, hold reset,then plug in power to get to recovery menu.

1) Install 2.2 Froyo OS

2) Install the 512F.zip within the 20110907SPI.zip file this will bring you to UBOOT 1.3.5 and Recovery 1.2.9

3) Rename the update_spi20111028.zip as update.zip then install and this will bring you to UBOOT 1.3.6 and Recovery 1.3.0 this will also force the player into recovery mode at every boot but this is part of the process temporarily.

4) Download update20111028.zip and rename as update.img the file extension change is important otherwise it wont see the update. In the recovery menu select apply update then select the update.img file on your SDcard and it will install and go back to normal boot mode.

Android 2.3 is running on it after that.

Some info about the 2.3 build
* No market support built in.
* Apk of Android 2.3 market here does not work.
* Youtube 2.2.16 apk works fine.
* Seems a bit snappier overall.
* Still no idea how Samba support is meant to work, PDF mentions it but video player still does not see any Samba shares.
* Better control panel settings some of the minor issues from 2.2 have been addressed.
* Flash is still at 10.2 but Geniatech Android 2.3 PDF specifically mentions to not mess with their version otherwise you will break Flash altogether.

512F, this is what i used, so i am not that stupid after all) so if composite not working, then stereo not working too?? will it work in future?

another thing i noticed: when i power the device on, it starts and the android logo is ugly, and my tv report "ec/hdmi1" then it powers off itself (the leds are on, but tv report that nothing is connected), then powers on again with nice and clear logo and tv report "hdmi1, 720p/60hz". it looks like it is auto adjusting... what does "ec/hdmi" means?
