Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

I would love to see a fix no matter how klugey. I have three MiBox 3s, and since the update to the operating system, some channels pixellate/don't interlace and others are fine when in use with the HDHR feed. I also have one MiBox S; it had no problems with the system update. I second that! Would r...

Re: No record series

I do think that there should be a "Record Series" button, in addition to the listing of upcoming showings, as there was before. Clicking on that "Record Series" button can then bring up the list of options that you were listing. Just seeing the listings alone, doesn't intuitively tell you what to do...

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

My MiBox 3 is still totally useless. I guess that blacklist thing from Ned is not to be. It's a difficult decision because it is only affecting some MPEG2 content and not others. Forcing software decoding will decrease deinterlacing quality, so there's a tradeoff. Ive been whispering in the boss's ...

Re: No record series

This change threw me for a loop too! It's kind of vague and needs to show that there are options. Also, there was no changelog notice, as far as I can see.

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

Obviously, their engineers don't have these test MPEG2 video to test with. Otherwise, they won't keep sending out these crippling firmware updates. first happened on MiBox S Android 9 update last year (I reported that). They didn't learn from that and kept up with another for MiBox 3. If you still ...

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

Just wanted to post an update. I had some decent responses from Xiaomi tech support. I got past the "Becky in customer service" level of support and was talking to tier 2. We went through a couple of different steps and they also sent me some firmware to load. It didn't fix the problem but this was...

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

I have one Mibox 3 and two Mibox 4's. I was having the same problems as documented in this thread on all three boxes. However, I find that I can get it to work using the HDHomerun Kodi PVR client. I had to disable hardware acceleration in the Kodi settings. It is kind of a pain because some of my o...

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

As jasonl pointed out in another thread, MiBox 3 never had a good de-interlacing even when it works. 1080i60 is de-interlaced into 1080p30 with significant artifacts. Mine was very acceptable for my kitchen 32" 1080P set when it worked on Oreo, prior to this "Upgrade". By the way I had contracted X...

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

I am experiencing the same problem. How do I get the blacklist implemented on my tuner? You don't. SD needs to implement it (blacklist it so that HDHR app can use software decoding instead of hardware) and update the app. As I suspected earlier in this thread, I'm not sure the SoC in this thing is ...

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

My MiBNox 3 US updated to Android 9 today and is unwatchable! The video is breaking up on every channel. Pixelating and jumping. Restarted. Not usable at all. Please help! Thanks. Can we have you enable the HDHR app diagnostic data? We can use that to create a temporary blacklist for hardware decod...

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

Can't SiliconDust get in touch with AmLogic to help them resolve this? It seems majority of the Android TV boxes, including the latest Google TV, are using AmLogic SoC. With current trend, soon, HDHR will have to totally rely upon software decoders for all decoding. Instead of blacklisting, you wil...
