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

That just their way of saying they don't care. I would tell them to try out VLC to playback the video but I suspect they will blame VLC as well. Their engineers in China probably never received such video to re-produce the problem. IIRC, SD might have reached out to them as well last time. How ironi...

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 h...

Re: airtv mini 4k dongle still no fix?

Get couple of Chromecast with Google TV. They are cheap ($49) and don't have to worry about this kind of problem.

Corporate IT policy overrides local Admin privilege. Any attempt to bypass IT policy is a fire-able offense in most cases unless your last name is Clinton :)
I wouldn't tamper with it.

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.

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

Sorry, I did say SD needs to implement it, nothing you can do unless you have access to their source code and know how to modify the app and rebuilt it :)

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: Apple TV App Downloaded

New bug: it seems there is a deinterlacing issue on Apple TV. This is quite obvious when there is any computer generated text on screen. For example, CNBC channel always has a ticker at the bottom of the screen. Each letter can be seen with jagged edges. Compared to my Chromecast with Google TV, it ...

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

Not related to Android 9 at all. The best example is TiVo Stream. IIRC, it was released on Android 9 and worked fine for MPEG2 until a recent update which ended up the same as your Mi Box 3. Typically when a new firmware is updated (especially a new major version of OS release), manufacturers will u...

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 will...

Yeah, every firmware release by Xiaomi on this device makes it worse and worse. There is nothing you can do to prevent it from update itself.

I don't think that chipset has enough power to run software decoding. Pity.

Re: Apple TV App Downloaded

I might be imagining things, but it seems like upgrading to tvOS14 or tvOS14.0.1 reset the HDR settings. I did have to go in and change them back to 4K SDR. I still see a noticeaable difference in color saturation between Channels and HDHR apps. Could be. If it prompts you to enable DV or HDR, just...
