Hi Folks!,

eine Frage, zu der ich nix gefunden habe:

ich nenne ein DR870 mein Eigen, seit Weihnachten, natürlich habe ich dieses tolle Forum erst später gefunden ;-(( ,

sonst hätte ich vermutlich ein anderes Teil gewählt, aber gekauft ist gekauft...

Eigentlich bin ich recht zufrieden, der Alarm (WEcker) geht nicht richtig und INet TV ist auch für n August, der Rest jedoch ist brauchbar.

UNPNP vom NAS (Synology 212) , INet Radio in allen Formen und Mediaplayer auch.Mehr brauchte ich eigentlich nicht, zumindest bis ich im Forum gesehen habe, was wirklich geht mit dem Teil...

ABER: hat das Teil auch diesen "Killerbug" weiß das wer?

Und zufällig eine LLFirmware dafür ist irgendwo zu finden )?

Hat jemand einen Plan, wie man wenigstens einen Deutschen Nachrichten Sender ans laufen bringt?

Ist i.Ü. schon das zweite Gerät, das erste hatte ein unerträgliches Pfeifen. Firmware ist neuer, aber mit der "alten" ging INet TV wenigstens etwas, zumindest Phönix.

Habe auch bei ALAN angefragt, ob man einen Zugang zum Gerät haben kann(Telnet), aber bisher keine Antwort.

Vielen Dank also auch für das Forum und Eure Mühe!

Stevenix (der Steffen)

Hello,

The Albrecht DR870 is not supported YET! It will be though. I have modified all graphic routines for the 4.5 and 7 inch screen sizes.
Right now the firmware runs on my 7 inch test device. There are a few more things  that need to be fixed before the release will go public.

The alarm is a pain in the ass. Unfortunately the manufacturer screwed up AGAIN! but this time they created a bug in the bootloader.
So this is really something that needs work.
Also TV Out is not working properly.

Thats not exactly clear yet. They use a different mechanism for the flash memory and there are a few odd things with it.
The same technology is used in the newer 3.5 inch models (RM003 versions) and those indeed are still doing strange stuff with the flash memory.

The manufacturer does not allow adding/changing stream urls. In fact, they do not care much about the devices once they are sold to their distributors!
Once the devices are in the warehouse they try to forget about the device.

The LL firmware will hopefully be out in a few weeks. This will also take care of telnet access.

Hi William,

Does this new firmware (1.47) support Albrecht DR 870? Actually, is it the same as LookeeTV 7"?

I'm actually don't care about alarm clock even if it still have a problem, but more about media functionality..

 

Thanks a lot!

They are the same in terms of hardware. Not in terms of software.
Software is in preparation. You need a special version of 1.47.

Hi William;

looks nice!

I hope you can the firmware finish soon.

My favorite danish Radiostations change the URL, i think the chinaman doesnt implement this.

Best Regards!

Steffen

Would be great to have Penbex-Firmware on these devices as well!
At the moment I don´t use it at all - XORO with 1.47 is so much better, including the alarm which is now working excellent!

If there will be a LL-firmware for these devices, is the Albrecht DR 800 included as well or only the DR 870?

William, if you need a testing device DR 800 I can send you this for a while if necessary!

Best Regards
Juergen

The aim is to have both working.
I have both devices here, the 7 inch currently runs the 1.47 firmware needs some more testing though.
The 4.3 inch runs it as well but has some graphics issues that need to be adjusted..
Most of the technical differences with the 3.5 inch models are covered now as well with the exception of TV-Out.
Release dates are a matter of finding the time to finish testing.

Good, keep an eye on the thread where the latest changes are listed. There are several things, like for example video not playing in fullscreen that are known and fixed already.

Hi William;

absolutly great job, lots of thanks and so on... 

The Albrecht is like a new/other Device with the LLFW 1.48. Awesome work ,a pity I can not help. actually the way it should be.

But, some things need a little bit of  work (IMO)

-TuneIn crashed repeatable; i call it, select an entry, call this, the entry connect and the Device shut down, must disconnect the powerplug to turn on;

    but TuneIn is NOT important for me ,

-same results at *.ru, but sometimes it works...?

-Videoscaling incorrect, but its known,

  when i play some movies from the NAS (DS212), e.g. some *avi comes in fullscreen, but not all...

-*.ts doesnt play

-there shoud be an option to change the startscreen ( need Rdio first)

-cant connect with ftp (i`m interestet in the file structure ) )

-volumegain can be higher, if it possible

-the FW altogether is relatively fragile, sometimes the decice crashed,  rarely

but overall an absolutely sharp labor !

Regards! and thanks again!

Steffen

Hi Steffen, It is important for others so if there are problems they need to be fixed.
I do not have much issues. At least not with the device hanging itself.
There are for sure issues with the favorites, these are mostly solved already.

Quote:

You mean the 101.ru app? They changed some of the information they are giving and are not following standards.
I know, the code should be prepared for this.. but it was not. Now it is.

Quote:

Correct, scaling is solved for the larger screens now. (Fix is on its way)
.ts is indeed not supported. No idea why I simply never added .ts to the list of supported formats.
Let me take a look if it works..

Quote:

-there shoud be an option to change the startscreen ( need Rdio first)

Thats not so easy to do for the moment.
All input is welcome though, what would be your preferred order of apps?

Quote:

-cant connect with ftp (i`m interestet in the file structure ) ) 

Correct, but you can use telnet. (or samba)
Just connect via telnet to the ip address of your device.
username root, no pass.

Quote:

-volumegain can be higher, if it possible 

You can influence the base volume for mplayer and fm (mixer input)
1.49 will have more options for this.

Quote:

I need any input you can give on device lockups. Preferrably anything that can be reproduced/replicated.
So far all is running fairly well on the 3.5 inch devices. There are some issues with the 7 inch ones.
There are always tiny things that are different between the devices that I overlooked.. there is a CPU difference (but also luckily more RAM!! )
Thats why 1.49 will be a release focussing on stability.

~William

I know there were issues with black screens and not returning to the normal screen mode. Should hav ebeen fixed..
You would need a special version. Contact me via mail for details.
