A couple of days ago we received some photo’s of the inside of the OvalElephant Smart TV Box. As you can see on the left, it looks like all hackers stuff is there
On the left top side of the CPU board we see a UART connection. Unpopulated, but all nicely labelled so should not be a problem for most of us.
On the right bottom corner there are actually two more internal unpopulated USB hosts! This most likely explans the conflicting amount of USB port here and there on the specification sheets.
Yesterday after noon I received both this AMlogic-M3 box as the RK3066 hdmi-stick. Looks like I have a lot to play with for the next couple of days. Unfortunately I first have to merge the website from Apache to nginx as memory consumption is getting out of hand lately.
Worked on the merge a bit yesterday (hence the 500 / 502 error here and there) and it all works except the forums? Anyway will keep you guys posted and will do the review very soon. Anybody interested in an un-boxing video? If not I will skip it, otherwise need to get my self some proper lightning.
