Ok, but then I don't know where the problem is... If you know how to actually use linux, all is written in amlogics guide. All you have to change is to use your u-boot-aml-ucl.bin file instead of u-boot-aml.bin from the guide.

What you have to do is to open terminal and copy u-boot-aml-ucl.bin to beginning of sdcard with dd command. After that you have to delete all partitions on your sdcard with fdisk utility and create new primary partition of type fat32 which will start from 2nd or 3rd sector. Changes you have done write to your sdcard and format newly created partition. Copy all upgrade files to your sdcard's newly created partition and insert it into your box. After that do standard recovery procedure using reset button on the back.

That's Vissons product. If you're running Android 4, it's ATV-108 (officially). Old ATV-108 boards used pretty much the same hardware as ATV-101. ATV-108s with new chipset (AML8726M3) afaik are not available yet for end customers. New ATV-108 uses different hardware and it's based on different chipset (m3).

I have one of these with 4.0 and I wanted to pass on, sometimes it takes two or three tries to get it to start up. If anyone thinks theirs is dead; something to keep in mind.
Otherwise this box really stands out as a good one in my mind. They set the storage up right so you have a lot of room to install apps (not a ridiculous 100mb like I've seen on some android 2.2 devices). When the thing boots up as a new device it asks you which launcher to use so you can pick the android one instead of the 'tv box' one. You can get into settings and pick an android keyboard profile that doesn't overlay the video pop up touch / mouse one over everything. I've had good streaming / flash luck and it is an A9 / pretty powerful (onlive works btw). My wireless works. It supports wireless kb and mouse or USB. The TV resolutions translate to computer monitor resolutions (re: 1080p works fine through a $3 DVI adapter to pc monitor) and it has a screen resizing utility... Only things I could not get to work were Bluetooth (wouldn't work with add on dongles that my pads worked with) and VPN. I’ve tried everything with them so I think they’re just kludged / wrong in the kernel build.
I basically use mine as a smart thin terminal… thin term but it can run its own programs as needed since it has the horsepower. But anyway, if you’re reading this thread because you’re thinking of buying one; I’d say they are a very good unit (and there are a lot of bad android TV boxes available).

Using wired mouse is fine.

I use the cheap Microsoft wireless kb and mouse combo that come with their keyed usb dongle / radio. They all work. I got a mouse with the android box, it was unreliable so I threw it out.

Working on that.... It's kernel issue, usb goes to standby with the box, so for now there is no way to power it back on via usb.

Mine does not seem to go into standby (which is good). Is there a setting somewhere so he could turn standby off?

No, there is no option for that. It's bad idea by default not to be able to put device to standby. I will think about it and maybe add it somewhere in options in my future fw releases.

About USB not going to standby, it's something unexplainable... sometimes it goes immediate, sometimes not.... depends on what's connected to usb (by my experience).

I have. Maybe I'm a manufacturer?

Ok, let me say this way.... Visson is producing and branding devices for me, so they are manufacturers of ATV-108, ok?

AC3 problem is licensing issue, that's the reason why it doesn't work (Android 2.3.4 is different story). If you install ac3 license file to efuse, it will work.

If someone interested, fun_ from xda developers is building cm9 rom for c03ref (ATV-108 with aml8726m chipset).

Thread starting on page 78:

[DEV] unofficial CyanogenMod 9/ClockworkMod Recovery 5 for Amlogic AML8726-M tablets - Page 78 - xda-developers

I don't want to hijack/reroute this thread by any means however this is the only thread I can find on this device.

Does anyone else have the issue of Flash (version 11) crashing every browser? I'm on Build ICS.MBX.20120422 (the latest I believe)...

Other than the Flash issue (which is kind of the reason I bought it) I love the thing.

Here you go:
install_flash_player_ics_1207.apk download - 2shared

It's Flash 10.2 for ICS by Amlogic. Works on ICS builded today by me (from Amlogic sources) within default browser, so it should work with all others.

Also, not to forget, I will release and upload ICS firmware to ATV-108 (AML8726M chipset) with Samba support, video player with settings that could be saved, subtitles problem will be solved (there is an option to choose which codepage to use for decoding).

Will post link to fw here...

But before copy them on your SD-card you need make boot-sd-card (see here and here)

sweet pwlad! how did you fix ac3? post link to files or whatnot..i tried to set the licence in efuse but i don't think this recovery console allows setting the audio efuse like that...ethernet sure...but not the audio licence, unless you know better stane19833...also stane1983, how did you add samba to ICS? i tried and found i can't start the smbd daemon needed for samba.apk to work right in the init.rc. i can start it at command line, but it has to be restarted every time you wanna go to a new share...and init.rc is generated by boot.img in the update.zip...and boot.img is overwritten by the recovery img at every boot, or so i heard? so how are you auto starting the samba daemon (/system/bin/smbd) on bootup? i can't unpack any of the boot.img i've tried for any kind of amlogic android tv...and i have tried every tool in the book, including the kitchen sink..

i'd also like to expand out the /system partition at some point to a little more than 256mb...with the market patch that the update comes with, it can't even install all the gapps cos it runs out of install space on the /system partition. and if you fill the /system partition too full, your android system will fail to boot. it needs just a few kilobytes free to boot..i've learned this the hard way rolling my own firmwares for the atv-108. maybe i'll post my updated firmware here once i fix samba and ac3. then it's almost perfect.

oh, and i want to add a feature to the 2.3.4 and 4.0.3 versions here for atv-108 but i don't know how. i need my atv to turn off about 15 minutes after a movie ends and stops playing. i need it to turn off or go into standby so that my projector loses video signal and then it goes to sleep 10 minutes later. i do this with my laptop in my bedroom. i have a projector that i use every night. i have it set to vlc plays my movie in windows, then ends, then windows sleeps 15 minutes later and that triggers the projector to sleep 10 minutes after that. then my bulb doesnt run all night with nothing on. i need this standby feature on my atv-108 so i can replace this shitty HP laptop!

i don't have a solution to ac3 yet..i have tried every ac3 firmware file i could get my hands on, and i also tried many variations of setting the licence file into efuse that i found on a geniatech enjoy forum on here. i don't think this recovery console allows audio efuse commands and i havent found any other way of loading this on here...maybe a recovery console from another 8726m tablet or something that allows audio efuse licence file setting...then load our recovery image back on? just an idea...

ok...so ac3 works fine for me and i suspect it always has...its DTS tracks that are making the hissing noise every second. every dts track movie i got is doin it....i have a c71 upgrade 8726m3 tablet also and it does it as well. so how to fix dts is the real question. and how to edit my init.rc to start smbd with android? also, my wifi speeds suck! i get maybe 100k/sec download. i can't stream netflix or samba movies or anything streaming on the network and its because of my wifi speed! anyone else got shitty wifi?

If you don't have kernel sources, only way to edit init.rc is to unpack and repack uImage (boot.img)... Scripts for that you can find on xda forum thread I posted few posts earlier somewhere between page 60 and 70, don't know exactly

I'm nearly done with first full featured ATV-108 c03ref ICS firmware. Taught it would be today, but I'll delay upload of my fw for tomorrow.

What to expect of my fw:
- entirely built from code, except for kernel image, since I don't have configs for ICS kernel, so Visson's image is used
- MoviePlayer - multiple subtitle encoding support
- Network - samba shares, upnp.... basically UI I used from GB sources, working on my own, but will not release it for now.
- much better performance (in speed) than Visson's last firmware

i tried the unpack boot.img thing, but none of the tools would do it...they all complained about no android magic, or not being a full recovery or boot img....and i dont' have source code...im not an official amlogic partner yet...how are you getting samba to autostart? since you are building from source, are you building your own custom init.rc? also, what is up with ICS and wifi internet speeds? i think it might have to do with WPA encyption, but i gotta test further...but any 8726m device i have running ICS 4.0.3 with a realtek 8192cu wifi card is suddenly only getting 1mbps instead of the 10mbps i should be getting...two different networks, one 80211n and another 80211g, both with wpa ( wpa and wpa2) , and very slow internet...zenithink c71 8726m3 with 8192cu wifi and ICS 4.0.3 has the same issue? does yer wifi have the same issue stane1983? my settings are as follows:

80211g w/ WPA (tkip) passkey - superslow BAD download speed, NORMAL upload speed
80211n w WPA2 passkey - same as above

About USB not going to standby, it's something unexplainable... sometimes it goes immediate, sometimes not.... depends on what's connected to usb (by my experience).

Must be. Maybe my wireless usb dongle radio sends enough random chatter to the box to keep it from going into standby.

PS
If your selling these I would point out how much space is available for programs to be installed and that your serious about the market working. I've bought other android devices that came with hardly any space for programs and the market hardly worked. I'm perfectly happy with these units.

I'm nearly done with first full featured ATV-108 c03ref ICS firmware. Taught it would be today, but I'll delay upload of my fw for tomorrow.

What to expect of my fw:
- entirely built from code, except for kernel image, since I don't have configs for ICS kernel, so Visson's image is used
- MoviePlayer - multiple subtitle encoding support
- Network - samba shares, upnp.... basically UI I used from GB sources, working on my own, but will not release it for now.
- much better performance (in speed) than Visson's last firmware
Oh, are you a developer for Visson?
ICS.MBX.20120422 is your?
Are the tools you use your "know how"?

Respect (and sorry my English)

No, I'm not developer for Visson, they do have their own engineers for their firmware versions. Visson is producing hw for me, I'm adopting (adding features, translating, preparing for central and eastern european market) software and will sell it. Now, to be able to do that, I signed docs with Amlogic to be their partner.

And no, ICS.MBX.20120422 is not mine. I didn't release any ICS version yet.

What you have to do is to open terminal and copy u-boot-aml-ucl.bin to beginning of sdcard with dd command. After that you have to delete all partitions on your sdcard with fdisk utility and create new primary partition of type fat32 which will start from 2nd or 3rd sector. Changes you have done write to your sdcard and format newly created partition. Copy all upgrade files to your sdcard's newly created partition and insert it into your box. After that do standard recovery procedure using reset button on the back.

When I Type The 2nd Part Command

Code:

Yes, before it, you need to enter this command:
sudo mkfs.vfat /dev/sdb1
and check that the directory /media/kernel/ exist. Create it, if not.

p.s. Make sure that your flash drive is sdb

Default ICS Firmware

!!! Read first !!!

This firmware is designed for Visson ATV-108 product version 1 (c03ref board). To make sure you have right device, go to Settings -> About device or about MediaBox if you are using ICS Android.

This is test firmware which configurations are made for this particular device and should not be installed on any other device. If you are installing it on this device, you have no problems, but in either case, I do not take any responsibility made to your device by installing this firmware.

Install Instructions:
1. Extract all files from ZIP archive to root of your sdcard
2. Pull out power cord from your device and put your sdcard in the device
3. Use paperclip to press reset button on back side of device and keep it pressed
4. Pull back in power cord to your box and wait for front leds to blink 3 times. After that release reset button
5. Wait for upgrade to finish
6. If you are upgrading from Gingerbread version of firmware (Android 2.3.4), repeat step 2 to 5 (when doing that, you will have no picture on your tv at all or it will be scrambled before upgrade starts -> that is normal behaviour)
7. Unplug your device from power and power it back on. On first start you will see welcome screen where you can set up your box parameters). Everything what is not set trough welcome screen, it can be done by going to Settings from launcher
8. Enjoy :-)

Features:

- MoviePlayer: added shadow to subtitles
- MoviePlayer: user selectable subtitle encoding
- MoviePlayer: if player starts for the first time, default codepage used is set based on system language (English/Croatian/Chineese)

- FileBrowser: Behaviour of Esc button is changed. When back or Esc on querty keyboard is clicked, FileBrowser goes folder up. When it is in root folder, it asks if you want to exit application

- Network: Start of samba implementation, it does not work (can't mount network shares, but shows list of available shares in network)

Known bugs/disadvantages:
- V.play bootanimation does not look good, need to create new one
- Some translations in MoviePlayer and FileBrowser are english only for now (such as encoding selection in MoviePlayer and quiting FileBrowser message dialog)

I need feedback on this one :-)

samba can be fixed by this:

test: open terminal
su
at root prompt : smbd start

then switch to network samba.apk and try again, also ensure permissions are set right for the 4 files (2 libs, 1 smbd binary, and samba.apk)it takes for samba to work. i have it working on my 4.0.3.

if all goes well, you will need to add these lines to your init.rc in your boot.img , preferably right after service hciattach.


service smbd /system/bin/smbd
oneshot


once that is added to your rootfs init.rc, repack your boot.img and yer all set.

Which kernel have you used? My build of ICS is based on visson's kernel images (repacked to start smbd), but I'm not sure if their kernel supports cifs at all. I'm building same fw for m3 board which I have and I have kernel sources for m3, so if it works there that would mean that cifs is not supported by Vissons kernel.

I do have m1 kernel sources, but lack of ICS configuration, so ICS is not working with this kernel version...

so far stane1983, yer firmware rocks! way faster than vissons firmware. for example, i don't know how you fixed it, but audio video sync is now perfect in veetle, and netflix video runs so smooth, its amazing. couple of problems, no audio in netflix, tried a ton, no audio. had audio in netflix in visson's last firmware, so maybe its a system codec issue. i know most of netflix audio tracks are AAC. also, netflix only runs for about 5 minutes on most videos before the video stops playing. it just cuts out. logcat tells me that the amplayer that is actually decoding the netflix ffmpeg stream is disconnecting and shutting down. no reason why though. wifi is good and fast and stable with my 80211N router. wifi slows to a crawl and then drops connection and then reconnects on my 80211G buffalo router. hate the amlogic launcher. wish it had the regular android launcher frankly. samba network is broken as you said, but if you go to terminal and enter 'smbd start' as root, it works great! i took the liberty of repacking your new firmware but with root/superuser and my newer version files for samba stuff. i have a mesada made fv-3 player. its another amlogic 8726m box. i looked at it's init.rc and you've done everything exactly right to get smbd started properly..same on the atv-101 2.3.4 firmware. we are missing something here. also, can you do me a favor? can you add sleep function back into firmware since you have sources? i am desperate for it. i don't know why they took it out in the first place. i have a c71 zenithink tablet(8726m3 - 4.0.3) and its got sleep function. can ya help me out?

Download SDTool.zip from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way

download this tool everyone! and follow the instructions in the pdf only use your firmware files for this and not what the instructions say. this ONLY works on windows xp. but it is the easiest way i know to make a burned boot recovery SD card. no linux necessary. i love linux but dd is slow and a pain in the ass. use this tool and take the easy road!

Ok, samba issue solved (on M3 board, should be the same on c03ref - same sources, but different board configurations). Since I have slightly different sources than visson (newer probably) just starting smbd in init.rc didn't work.. It has to be started after bootcomplete in order to work.

init.rc:

# Samba
service smbd /system/bin/smbd
disabled
....
on property:dev.bootcomplete=1
....
start smbd

About netflix, I'm not sure how I can reproduce or fix this issue. I don't have netflix account (if needed one anyway), when going to netflix homepage it says it's not available in my country...

About launcher, I will include Launcher2 in my next build (which will be today), and will also include su and Superuser.apk, so no need for repacking

Next on samba, I will leave it for now as is. Still working on my own UI app solution.

Now I noticed that if I exit Network, start it again and try to connect to my share it gives me error that it cant connect to ip... when I do click again to connect to share it connects. Seems that service goes to sleep or something like that... but it works...

That's all from me now... will post link to new fw when it's compiled and uploaded.

so would it be better to rig up a broadcast receiver for smbd? also, if you go to a terminal and start smbd from there, 'su', 'smbd start' then switch over to network app, you can see what smbd is really doing...it only fires off and works when you connect up the share, then its job is complete so it stops. even in the terminal. you gotta go and type smbd start again to make it work again. it runs then dies. and needs a respawn every time you wanna run it. but it doesnt do it in 2.3.4. it starts in init.rc and works nonstop. wonder why? maybe newer sources like you said. kinda funny cos video with yours looks better than any other firmware i've tried. and flash is working amazing too. but mediaplayerservice stops running after 5 minutes of use. thats what logcat says. and it doesnt recognize the embedded tag for audio type in the netflix stream like it did in visson's firmware. stane1983, do you need any logs from me or anything that would help? also, youtube app just crashes upon open. that and netflix are a dealbreaker for me. if they don't work, then i gotta keep using visson's firmware. and i don't want to. i wanna use yours. its very nice.
