Volumio for TV box Amlogic S905\S905X\S912

Postby balbes150 » Sat Jan 06 2018 22:18

The version Volumio of the image for platform Amlogic S802\S812, to run from external media (SD card and USB flash drive).

https://yadi.sk/d/vAHmhi0w3REpkT

Pay attention to the initial launch takes a long time (10-15 minutes). At this time, on the screen anything will not be displayed. First You must activate the multi-boot. Platform-S802\S812 activation multi-boot is possible ONLY with SD card. After a one-time activation procedure is multi-boot using SD card, you can use any media (SD card and USB flash drive). Details of the activation and characteristics of the primary treatment system are the same as for Armbian, see details on the forum Armbian in this thread.

I finally succeded and the G-Box booted on Volumio. I was able to use Volumio as speakers to my iPhone and the sound went throgh HDMI and SPDIF. When I tried to listen to an FLAC file from my NAS it failed with an error on sound hardware. Tried to reboot and get stucked on first screen, half S802 logo and half white screen. I will keep trying.

Added the dtb file for the VIM2 (s912).
To use it you need to download and rename the correct version of the file in the “dtb.img”.

The new version of Volumio 0.7_20180325. It has audio output via a standard HDMI output. To use this feature, you must use one of two dtb files. For VIM1 (S 905 X) - "kvim_android.dtb" for the VIM2 (S912) - "kvim2_android.dtb". For those who use other dtb files, please write the names of the dtb files that you use. They need to make a number of changes to make them earned HDMI output.

Update the Volumio image for S802\S812 0.2 20180327.

Audio output works through the standard HDMI output. So far it is implemented with dtb file for "meson8m2_n200_2G_volumio.dtb" . For those who use other dtb files, please write the names of the files (to enable output via the regular HDMI i'm need to make changes to the dtb file).
