    Hi,
    Need help from those who already owned this Android box. I just bought the exact same thing. My TV has no HDMI (old CRT TV), so I have to use the Component (YPbPr) connection, which my TV has. The cable supplied is the Yellow, Red and White that does not correspond to Red, Green and Blue of Component cable. Has anyone tried figuring out which color goes to which? I tried to interchange the connectors but so far no success.

    When the device has started, is there any indicator/light/LED to show that it is on? I saw a picture of a similar looking device that has the Android logo on top lighting up. Anyone has this?

    Does AV Out port beside the Network port able to output Audio and Video or just Audio with the cable provided? I suppose AV out means Audio Video out.

    Thanks for all your help

    I got this DX clone.

    I really need to find out how to play big files (like 10gb) mkv 1080.
    I have an external HD (500gb) and it only mounts if in fat32. I can't put large files into a fat32 HD. What is the solution you guys suggest?

    PS: What are the benefits of installing this new firmwire (maxq r7)? So far I just saw the smb server.

    Hello I have your same device. Mine can read ntfs formatted disk without any problem. I think also yours.. all our devices have the same firmware, the difference is in small customization of some vendors..

    Thanks for the reply.
    Weird. Mine couldn't read NTFS (I get an error on the task bar saying it could not be mounted - corrupted or something).

    From the Settings menu I get this info:
    Model Nr: TV-BOX
    Android Version: 2.3.1
    Kernel version: 2.6.32.7
    build number: rk29_gingerbread_v1.28_071
    sdkDemo-eng 2.3.1.2011022.10416

    Do you mind in checking if the version is the same?

    Are you sure the hard disk is ok? you can try to attach the HD to a windows pc and make a scandisk to fix possible errors..
    If it does not resolve, you can try to upgrade your firmware.. I have a similar version but differ from yours for:

    sdkDemo-eng 2.3.1 GINGERBREAD eng.hushishuai.20110922.120230 test-keys

    you can download maxr7 version and try, or I can give the link to my device firmware on my site:

    Creazione di una Custom Rom per dispositivi rk2918 (rooted) [clamel.netai.net]

    you have to download the link "U574R softwares in Italian.rar"

    You can change the langage to english after installation. Let me know :)

    Thanks a lot Clamel. I will double check my hdd (its in fat32 now) re-formatting in ntfs and give a try.
    If it doesn't work I will try to use this custom rom :)

    you are welcome.. only a little notice: the link I gave you is not a custom rom.. This is the original firmware on my tvbox. In the article i start from it to obtain a custom ROM :)

    good luck :)

    It's working now clamel. I don't know what I did wrong (probably was using the wrong usb slot while trying to make it work with ntfs).

    You did the root right? Could you please share links or tutorials talking about how to root our device? I saw the link that you sent but my italian isn't that good :(

    I'm happy you solved your problem my friend.

    For rooting your device, try to use this automated translated page from my tutorial:

    Google Traduttore

    if you have any doubt don't hesitate to ask me :)

    If you can not use HDMI cable ( old TV or other reason ).
    Audio out cable - as usual.
    Video out cable - it is very difficult to find 3.5 mm. component video cable. In this case, take any 3.5 mm. component cable ( from video camera or other): red to red, white to blue, yellow to green. O.K. You are happy.

    Sorry, I mean "any composit" cable.
