Yesterday Tronsmart release their new stock firmware for their draco aw80 octa core tv box, and they also give us a surprise, and bring the android 5.0 beta firmware.
I read a lot of comment about this model, people blame the update is slow, but trust me, guys, we are always talking with them, they never stop working on it, we have submitted different problems to them, and each time, we need to ask our customers to offer very detail information, so they can repeat the problem, and then find it. So in future, If you want us to push some bugs to be fixed asap, please make sure you offer enough information. such as video demo. xbmc version, play source etc.
ok, here we go:
Android 4.4 Stock firmware, version 0318, download link is here:
and changelog is here:
1 Fix DTS passthrough problem in XBMC, Now you can get true 5.1 audio when you enable passthrough in XBMC. (make sure you also go to settings- sound settings, and enable passthrough in system, also choose the audio output to HDMI or spdif.
2 Fix the lines problem in our beta firmware.Now there is no lines in netflix , in veetle, and other similar apps. Actually, there are no lines in our first stock firmware (the 1029version), however after that, allwinner update the sdk, and try to improve the playback, but it cause the line problems, now, we fix it.
3 Live wallpaper is back.
4 USB hub problem solved. Some customer report when they use the usb hub, and insert different device to the hub, the draco aw80 won’t identify the connected device, now it is fixed.
5 Fix some app crash problem, like Albapptv.apk.
6 Optimize video playback
7 other tweaks.
However, we have to say, we also have some unfinished work, they are:
1 Youtube ipv6 problem, because there is no ipv6 network here, so it’s hard to test, we are trying to check how to imitate the enviroment.
2 Youtube 1080p problem, frankly speaking, we have checked similar device in the market, seems it is a common problem . we are working with allwinner for this.
3 Myvideo.tv app just have image , but no sound, thanks for users to report this, we need a little more time to fix.
