    I think I have a atv 108- just got it yesterday:
    MBX VISSON 2.0 Board
    Android 4.03
    Kernel 3.02

    Currently NetFlix will not play sound - youtube does. How can I tell if I have a atv 108?

    Thanks Guys

    DeviceChecker says: f16ref so if that is sufficient I will give it a go.

    If it's Visson product and DeviceChecker says f16ref, you will have no problems installing my fw...

    Post feedback, I do have 40+ downloads but no feedback.... I tested it myself for cpl of hours, watched 2 movies over network and found no errors.

    There is known problem with all firmwares with MoviePlayer and vobsub subtitles packed in mkv, they are not displayed correctly.

    Btw, if someone fixed this, feel free to share :) It's implemented in SubTitle package in amlogic source tree.

    Before the upgrade the box would not enable WiFi even though it did yesterday.

    I upgraded but unfortunately the WiFi wont work get an error trying to enable.

    After that going to the main Android screen the screen just goes black. Did set it to 1080p

    Restart and clicking on the Robot to go to the main screen causes the screen to go black.

    A hardware issuee since yesterday perhaps.

    I did get an upgrade error:
    "Mac written already or something error"
    "efuse write MAC failed"

    Can I reset back to the previous version? How?

    Just ignore the error. About wifi issue and this behavior.... I believe you have malfunctioning device... There is known problem with wifi on first f16's Visson produced, you should contact your seller for replacement device. Before that I recommend to return to stock fw. I do have stock fw 0502 from Visson, will upload it. Install procedure is same as was for my firmware.

    Maybe you have original fw, but you cannot 'downgrade' because of date checks in update script. I will upload fw but with modified update script which just skips that check and will install normally.

    Here is latest official fw (06-29) if you want to test. You can overwrite it wih my previous package:

    Download 6-29 M3 new firmware(ROOT

    This kernel is based on same sources as my fw, Android 4.0.4, so might be problems with netflix also... needs to be tested, I can't (netflix not available in Croatia).

    Will there be any rooted rom for c03ref version?

  13. stane1983

    stane1983 Well-Known Member Developer

    My rom or official? All my roms are rooted. About Visson c03ref update, forget about it, they abandoned that platform, moved to M3 (f16ref).

    Hi all, hoping someone can help. I recieved my box yesterday and have not been able to connect to the internet through ethernet. I have just flashed this Rom which seems much more stable, but still no ethernet connection only wifi which drops connection all the time. Have i got a faulty box? or could it be software related?


    edit: i had ethernet working for a while (dont know how) but its gone again, i think ICS is too unstable at present. is there any way to downgrade to android 2?

    Today I have upgraded my Google TV Box GV-13 device to your last firmware, and then it was stuck on "smart.. smarter.. v.play" screen and nothing happened.

    I had to make a rescue disk and to flash official "6-29 M3 new firmware", but the device was stuck on starting screen again.

    Unfortunately I have no backup firmware, and I dont know where to get it. So I only hope for your help.

    Here is how my device looks like.

    Thank you.

    Hi. Ethernet must work in all cases, wifi can be a problem. If you're sure you have no problems with your LAN cable or router itself, you have faulty box.

    Also, I didn't follow, if you have M3 (f16ref) device, there is no Android 2.3.4 for f16ref. On the other hand, if you have c03ref, I can provide you a link with modified update.zip which will allow you to downgrade to latest Visson's 2.3.4 firmware.

    P.S. Sorry for my absence, I was not feeling very good these days.

    My advise is to contact your seller to provide you latest official firmware for your device. As I told, I'm making firmwares only for Visson products, I can't do anything else right now but advise you to do that :)

    I posted this in another thread. You can go here: DVR VOD By URAKU
    and download the T1 fw. It is exactly the same as the GV-13.

    I've installed your firmware. It;s great; thanx!!
    I've a question: Why is it you can't install (or see) most apps for Google tv and even some apss like facebook and chrome on this ATV-108 device?

    Will be fixed (already is) in next release. If you want to try beta fw for f16ref, check out this post.

    Hi Stane,
    One question: how to update; I think you missed one file (there have to be 7 in stead of 6 files)
  23. stane1983

    stane1983 Well-Known Member Developer


    if you're referring to aml_autoscript, it's obsolete, new fw upgrades don't need that one.

    List of needed files for Visson ATV-108 f16ref update:


    Anyway, on V-Play download section you have new fw for f16ref, dated 20120807

    Hi stane,
    If updated it to the beta. Here my first impressions:
    stock browser works; chrome crashes; firefox; can't scroll to end of page.
    Wifi works, but stops more often then previous version.
    More apps (e.g. facebook) can be installed
    Wireless mouse works; keyboard(logitech) don't work.
    bluetooth works.

    Overall a great rom.
