The blue LED is lit, do not blink!

Now what? What should I do?

also, stane1983, i am still having trouble with wifi dropping signal...i tried other drivers, but it would appear in yer 0621 firmware that the driver is much smaller in size than other versions...the 8192.ko file is only 592k. where other versions are 7.2 and 8.4MB..and logcat/dmesg says that it can't load the 8192.ko module because it is looking for a 'version 2.6.34 vplay' and only finds a 'version 2.6.34'. but the bug in the wifi seems to be power management related. if i use any wifi app (veetle/vplay networking) that is high bandwidth, the connection meter will start losing signal bars and finally have no bars left. but the connection doesn't drop, it just says connected and does nothing. no signal bars. there is a corresponding logcat entry about power management service no being able to do something. i'll make a log of it if you are still here listening.

Well, keep cool and don't be so disappointed, solution will be found, soon or later.
Are you sure that creation of recovery SDcard was successful?
Make format SD card, creat again recovery sd card using XP machine, slowly and step by step and try to use mediafire firmware to upgrade, in the beginning of this trhead.
I believe somehow you do smth wrong.

it is correct.
but I can not run under my ATV108 uploading new firmware.
Not blinking blue LED (turn correctly: hold down the "reset" and connect the power supply) - here's the problem!

Is SD recovery card inserted already before plug in power supply?
After you connect power supply, red light blinks three times?
Disfunction of reset button possibly?

My AVT-108 broke up when uploading new firmware.
badly beat two files (the size of 0 bytes).
And when uploading new firmware error occurred.
After reboot, now nothing works!

UPDATE: wifi bug is a strange combination of factors. only really happens with 802.11N networks. 802.11N standards are set as follows:

802.11n, WPA2/AES, 20Mhz channels, WMM Enabled, greenfield mode if there are no other routers or devices on same channel.

if you deviate from these settings for 802.11N in your router even the slightest bit, wifi will drop on atv-108 06212012 stane ICS. adhere to those settings and set router to a channel so it doesn't change while working. pick an open channel! use 'wifi analyzer' from google play store.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.farproc.wifi.analyzer&hl=en

this is the best program ever for visualizing wifi networks! i think that the driver for the 8192cu wifi card inside the atv-108 is very strict as far as 802.11N standards go. so make sure to use these settings for your 802.11N router and all should be well! and very fast too! now that i think about it, if the channel on your wifi changed while using it, and the driver weren't set correctly to change with it, then the connection would lose signal but not really drop! this may be the problem i've been having with my wifi! Stane1983, when yer feeling better, take a look at the kernel driver for wifi and channel changing. i think there is a bug there.

UPDATE: so with the new settings on my router, my connection drops allot less, but it still drops. sort of. the signal level goes down, then logcat says it loses dhcpd connection and then after about a minute it reconnects itself and is good again. but anything streaming stops in that time and has to be restarted..

Hello,
This week I received "Google TV Box Android 4.0 ARM Cortex A9 WiFi HD 1080P HDMI Internet TV Box with Remote DDR III 512M 4GB+Flash+3D", I believe it's the same one we are talking in this thread.
CPU: Amlogic-8726M3 Cortex A9 CPU Max.1.2GHz
Model: VissonTech MBS 2.0 board
Brand: MBX
Name, device board: f16ref
ATV-108 rev 2, as I understand from above specs.
Video playback is terrible, constantly pausing with sound getting out of synchronization.

Vendor sent me updated firmware, it helped in general performance, but not in video playback.
----

This thread is long and hard to follow, at least confusing to me, sorry.
What should I do? What is the recommended mod/rom or firmware as of today? Sorry and thanks for your help.

V-Play download section

you want the version at bottom of page dated 06252012. that is newest best firmware for atv-108 f16ref which i believe is what you have. start there and use a sd card. not sdhc. and small too. 1gb sd card should do the trick.

you may want to get devicechecker.apk from the vplay site first. it will tell you what kind of device it is.

that error is normal. happens to all of us. there are issues with this firmware as well. but video playback is great!

WIFI BUG UPDATE: so after tons of trial and error and checking logs, issue has to be with wifi driver. numerous routers, different settings and they all drop connection. or at least drop signal bars until there is no connection left, then turning off wifi and back on restores connection til it happens again! this is frustrating! i think imma go buy a roku! none of my settings changes have fixed this! i wonder if i have a defective wifi card? it works most of the time and worked great on other firmwares...but not this one, stane1983's 06212012 c03ref.

btw. is firmware upgrade possible from usb memory stick ?

You're asking wrong man

I'm really sorry for my absence in last few days from the forum, but I'm not feeling well and cannot track all questions you guys have.

Just a short note:

Do not install my firmware on c03ref ATV-101!!!

i'm asking because, couldn't find all modules form my stock config.gz in cyanogenmod kernel sources also cannot find them on google ...

btw. is it normal that android on about page shows kernel 3.08 (shouldn't it be 3.0.8), but `uname -a` from command line shows 2.6.34 ?

... and it is very hard to become Amlogic partner and I cannot share sources with anyone because my company signed contracts with them because that would mean violation of contract...

OK, no problem ... so could you please add CP210x (as a module or build in) in next build ? I would be very grateful!

All Amlogic kernel sources are officially on 2.6.34. I don't know why they are forcing it to display 3.x on About page, but I never did and never will...

If you are looking for M1 platform kernel, take a look here and if you are looking for M3 platform kernel, it's also public, released by Amlogic, just google for it.

OK, "Amlogic" was the missing keyword. I googled theirs kernel sources, downloaded them but it seams that there isn no source for modules:
Quote:
CONFIG_AML_NFTL=m
CONFIG_RTL8XXX_CU_USB_WIFI=m
CONFIG_UMP=m
CONFIG_MALI=m
without them I my Module.symvers will be different then stock one and because of that my module won't be loaded.

Any hints ?

btw. I discovered that on ICS.MBX.20120614 usb host notification doesn't work (this is part of standard android 4.0 api)


EDIT:
I finally found meson 3 kernel with all needed sources, THANKS stane1983!!

So again I ask the

- No picture
- Prepare the SD card using SDTOOL under Windows XP does not have anything
-----
- Is able to upload new firmware different?

Hi stane,

Yep, already ordered it, and it's in the customs now....

I got the DVB-T USB stick, metioned this tread, so everything is ready to your great fw....I'd like to make a nice hybrid set top box, with ICS, Skype, DVB-T, timeshift, recording, EPG etc. I know it is possible....

On V-Play download section you can find DroidTV which is in very early stage of development, just POC, but if proves that DVB is working on ICS (tested with Pinnacle 73e usb stick).

All webcams compatible with v4l should work. Some of them will work with native Camera app, some of them will not, but all should work with Skype eg. I myself tested it against Logitech C170, both camera and built-in microphone work in skype.

And yeah, fw with more dvb support i mentioned above is not released yet, I'm fixing some bugs yet, but if you plan to order your Visson, just do it, it will be released when your box arrives

UPDATE: Don't test it against Geniatech, I don't think that it is same reference board.... you may brick your device

Stane request:

Stane, would you consider a touch up on existing visson software vs. your independent firmware? I tried the 4022 for rev 1 today and it fixed a couple problems but did not fix one I was looking for and added one new one.
Bluetooth still not working + Now I get choppy audio in some apps (ac3?). If you could add your fixes to these this unit would be doing everything I'm looking for.
PS
I tried yours first but had problems getting it to boot, screen sizing issues, also no Bluetooth.

I would say it is not Visson's product...correct me if I'm wrong... firmware you downloaded from vplay download section is for Visson hardware.

I have this Google TV Box Android 4.0 ARM Cortex A9 WiFi HD 1080P HDMI Internet TV Box with Remote DDR III 512M 4GB ram, 3 usb black boX/ Vission 2. Purchased from ebay from TOMTOP.

I am having issues with wifi connection, when I try to connect to my router it takes the password but keeps cycling/looping and then disconnects saying connection is too weak. But I do have roku box and another android box which connects well, I have tested it with N router and a legacy G router, the router is bearly 20 feet away. Every thing works well except it is not connecting to the WIFI. Can any one help. I am running Android 4 with the official firmware released on 6/29 i believe.

Is it possible to disable the internal inbuilt wifi and use a USB wifi instead?

Vissiontech MBX 2.0 Board
Android ver: 4.04
Kernel: 3.08

Default Visson ATV-108 f16ref recovery

Hi all,

I talked to my contact in Visson and we agreed that her engineer will provide me the recovery procedure for that device. She also confirmed that recovery procedure on c03ref and f16ref is not the same...

Regards,
Stane1983

I realize this is an ATV-101/108 but I was wondering if anyone has tried the fw on the main page of this thread: Android 4.0.4 - Google Android 4.0 ARM Cortex A9 1GHz WiFi HD 1080P HDMI Internet TV Box Black Latest Version (c03ref)
http://www.mediafire.com/?yicjsuik2bvclqn

on the following unit: GV-12 AML8726 Android 2.34 TV Box 1080P HDMI OUT Flash 10.2

I ran the device check.apk and it reported:

MBX DVBT reference board (c03ref)
Board: MBX
Name: c03ref
Device: c03ref
Board: c03ref

I'm having terrible video playback issues and wondering if this fw might be a possible solution. I hope I'm not asking an inane question - if so, please let me know. Appreciate any help anyone can offer.

I can't answer your question but this looks to be a geniatech manufactured box so lots of firmwares available for this box - several rebadged/re cased models - pivos xios, sumvision NANO 1 (and NANO 1 slim and slim+).

Have a read of this post: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=136114&pid=1148819#pid1148819

Lots of talk on these boxes as XBMC soon to be released for Android and this 'type' of box (the pivos xios) seems to be the developers only tested platform (but be aware that differences may exist between them due to codec licensing etc).

Cheers

I appreciate your comments and read the post you suggested. I see the specs are similar. Perhaps I could elaborate on this problem. I received the box and noticed immediately an audio/video sync problem, not to mention the video was clipping and generally lacking smoothness. I switched out HDMI cables, Tv ports, multiple video players, and different media sources but the problem remained very consistent. I then reflashed the ICS with this:
DVR VOD By URAKU
The T1 unit being an exact copy of my own. The flash went fine. Some small changes are evident, but the video problem remains the same. Is the problem therefore in the FW of the unit, or is this a hardware issue? Any thoughts?

@rhymeswith

Really depends on what you are trying to play - your rips may be beyond the capabilities of this box. Have you tried lower spec rips and still get the issue?

Might also be worth going back into recovery and doing a factory reset (which will wipe all user installed apps and settings) - so revert to a clean out the box ICS setup.

Tried the factory reset. Tried multiple rips. Tried AVI/Mp4 you name it. They all perform poorly and with lose of audio sync. I have a Cruz pad with Android and it plays everything flawlessly, so I know it isn't the rips. This is why this problem is so terribly frustrating.

Only thing I could suggest is trying one of the other resellers update images (or the one in this thread )- but suggest your happy that if it bricks your device you have recourse to return the box for a replacement/refund on the basis that's it's faulty.

One quick note, my rev 1 box does not seem to do any handshaking with the monitor. So if a firmware sets the android box to something your tv can't do... it will seem like the box is fried. I had to hook mine up to another monitor to set my unit to something my TV could use....

Will try using a monitor instead of my tv... perhaps also a good idea to use component video instead of hdmi.

Several weeks now with bricked unit...

I bought the same Tv Box as Monicaz, and i had some problems with the wifi (it connects for a few seconds, than drops the connection), so i have upgraded with the latest firmware in v-play, now i cant even start the wifi. I have contacted the seller (TOMTOP) and they gave me another firmware to install, but the same problem remains. Can anyone help me?

3. need use of etc/remote.conf instead of kernel to use RF (i have old r.c from2.3.4)
change to old witch no effect (on\off only)/
________________________________________

TIME SYNC in andro 5 min after boot.(first check eventually failed)

Quote:
However, for solving that issue, I install an app called "ClockSync" and configure it to update clock time always at boot. This way, clock time is updated only a few seconds after system boots, and this way I can use all features from Google Apps. Anyway, ClockSync is a free app, and you can install it easily from Google Play.

Why don't you put ClockSync on next updates of your rom and configure it this way? <...> It would improve a lot Google Apps usability.
in my case timesync in 27 sec after launcher starts not 5 mins.

Stane tell me price for beer u drink :0

Great JOB!

feedback:

1. at 4.0.4 cpu at 750 all time (SystemPanel_1.1.1.apk) in 2.3.4 jumps 200-750/

temp sensor show 0(C) degree

2. 1080p work until reboot, after that all screen zoomed upper left quarter of screen.

3. i update Superuser from market & install latest BusyBox all fine no bugs/

4. overall boot time 2x longer than 2.3.4

5. if u need some logs\dumps\screens just ask!

use 256-1 GB SD format to FAT32
unzip 7 files from latest f16ref FW to root of SD
safely remove SD

on BOX set HDMI RES 720p

turn off insert SD

push down RESET insert power cord

after 10 sec release reset

wait wait

in recovery select wipe data \ wipe cache
unplug power & SD

turnon device

thats all

in case of errors use SDtool recovery boot.

Hi and welcome to forums!

About beers, it's up to you

Answers:

1. CPU governor is set on performance in this version of kernel. Will be changed to ondemand with next release of firmware. Just a comment, I ran movies for whole night (literally) on ATV-108 c03ref without any cooler without problems, it wasn't hot or anything like that

2. I'm aware of 1080 bug and will be fixed with next firmware

3. I do not advise to install newer versions of busybox, but if it works for you go for it....

4. ICS is much bigger and needs more resources than 2.3.4 and that's why it takes so long to boot.

5. If I will need any will ask, don't worry

About IR, aware of that too, will be fixed in next firmware.

Hi Stane,

great job on the modified firmware. i have a c03ref device. i'm loving it except for the few known quirks already mentioned above! waiting for the next update.

can i just ask if you're going to release a firmware with usb audio anytime soon? because of the lack of speaker out on my device, and i want to run the device headless, usb audio is the only solution i can think of.
