SkyTC is a Chinese company that created a hand full of internet radio/tv player models and they are selling these under many different brand names on the market. In most cases the hardware is the same. However, firmware from one model can not be loaded onto another model. There are ways around that. The devices are based on Linux but so far SkyTC has failed to supply the GPL code.

SkyTC knows they are violating GPL licenses and stated that they will never comply. Also, SkyTC is aware of the many bugs and broken features in the firmware of our devices. They will not support us and will not provide any updates. They only care about new deliveries and new customers.
A good example of this "strategy" is the Arnova. If you buy one today you will probably get firmware 1.8.5. If you bought one earlier and have firmware version 1.7 then you are out of luck.
So if you are thinking of buying one of their devices and do not want to load alternative firmware, then think again!

I have started a new project creating a completely alternative firmware. New menus (graphics, layout etc) and new features (RSS, Video streaming services etc)
skytc image
The following models are known to be originating from SkyTC:
Aldi/Envivo PO1119, Mediabox 135, (Archos) Arnova, Xoro, HMT350, Otek, Pearl Auvisio IPTV-2335, KMP510, Xenta, Aigo/Aiguo, LinePro, WiWa eRTV208, Foxman, LookeeTV, Roxcore EZ-Play

To get the most out of your device, you should load one of the modified firmwares. After that you will have all the original features and you will be using the radio & tv database from this server.
Furthermore, when you register on this site, your 'username' will show up on your device and the stations you have selected as "MyFavorites" will also show up and you have the ability to add and modify database station entries via this website.

The devices are available with at least two different remote controls (see below) and with different internal flash memory configurations.

Right now it seems we have found how the memory size is part of the model number.

KMP510.x.y

x=0 for 512 Mb models                     ~ 40Mb available as Internal Flash disk
x=1 for 1 Gb models                         ~ 500 Mb available as Internal Flash disk
x=2 for 2 Gb models                          ~ 1.5 Gb available as Internal Flash disk

SkyTC did not want to tell what the differences between the RM001, RM002 and RM003 models are (If there are any at all... perhaps its just the shipment number )

To better differentiate between the small differences in the SkyTC models, I will put (and update when found) hardware details in this thread.

If you know of a difference please report in this thread.

One of the first differences that is clear is the remote control.
There are at least 2 models:

Extended version:  (eg. Large remote -28 buttons- , has 4 color buttons on the bottom row)

  Simple "Black" version:    Simple "White" version:  (eg. Small remote - 20 buttons- , missing the color buttons)

 

Entended remote control: Envivo, Xenta, Otek, Mediabox 135, Archos Arnova (seen with both models), Disgo TV Go
Simple remote control: Xoro, Archos Arnova (seen with both models), Wiwa eRTV208

The RM00x version number is *not* related to the remote control.

Another found difference is between the KMP510.0 and KMP510.2, the .2 has a different flash memory controller.
This could mean that firmware for the 510.0 will work on all hardware models, while the 510.2 firmware might not work on 510.0 hardware.
I need to check the PCB further to know if there are other differences as well.

 

 Brand Name/model:  Hardware model:  Revision Model: (?) Mainboard version  Flash Memory size: Flash Memory Chip  Other known differences:
Xoro hmt350 KMP510.0 RM001  kmp510 main ver 1.1 2010.07.15 LSD 512 Mb Hynix H27U4G8T2BTR Small remote
Xoro hmt350 KMP510.2 RM001   2 Gb Small remote
Xoro hmt350 KMP510.0 RM002   512 Mb Small remote
Xoro hmt350 KMP510.2 RM002   2 Gb Small remote
Envivo KMP510.2 RM002 kmp510 main ver 1.1 2010.07.15 LSD 2 Gb Samsung K9GAG08U0M Large remote

Hello.

Many buttons do not work on extended version of a remote control. So there is no big difference between extended and simple versions.

Hi,

Yes and no.. you are right in older firmware there are almost no functions assigned to the extra buttons. So yes, in terms of functionality it does not make much difference.
Btw, in newer firmwares this should be solved... lets wait and see..

However, in terms of firmware it does make a difference. Since the button "codes" transmitted over infra red appear to be completely different.
If you have both remote controls you will see that they can not be mixed. So when making changes to the firmware this has to be kept in mind.

Best Regards,
William

Another difference seems to be related to memory size.

The Envivo appears to have 2Gb of internal memory. When hooked to a PC the flash drive has 1.5 Gb.
The Disgo TV Go has 2Gb also, anyone has a Disgo TV GO so we can get some details?

The Xoro (at least one model) appears to have 512 Mb. When hooked to a PC the flash drive has about 35 Mb.

Lets see if we can find more on the memory sizes and hook that to the model numbers somehow...

Hi,
Can someone describe how to open the cover ... After unscrewing the screws did not want to do anything 'to force' for fear of damaging the housing. I promise that I'll do it as I will describe exactly my 208th WIWA eRTV

Just for interest, for those in the UK, Argos is selling the Disgo version for £56:99 (was £139, supposedly!!!). There's a free postage deal somewhere as well, so it's quite a bargain. Fairly sure they won't post abroad, so sorry everybody else.

http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Search?storeId=10001&catalogId=1500002901&langId=-1&searchTerms=5322776

It's an RM002 machine, same as the Xoro 510.2, with the small remote and 2GB memory. There's support of a kind from Disgo at   http://www.mydisgo.info/archives/1449   

Seems like a good value deal.


 wdobry   I have had the same problem with my two Xentas, get 5 screws out, then there's no play in the casing. I suspect there's a catch around the back, but haven't found it. I'd like to... the display on one is getting squiffy, and I need to decide if to send it back or try to repair.

I had some Argos vouchers left over after Christmas, so bought one of their Disgo machines. Expect the price to go down further (they were briefly on sale for £49:99 in the summer) but they may sell out.

Just to add some info on the Disgo TV Go to the list...

Model KMP510.0 TVGO001R
Type RM002
Firmware 1.7

Online firmware update reports none available. However Disgo website has firmware update to 1.8.9, via SD card. Updated to this just fine.

Larger remote (but the ""TV OUT" button is labelled "CALENDAR" ... because...

The Disgo does NOT output YPbPr  or  CVBS like the Xenta. It's limited to FM Antenna and Headphone from the respective sockets. Whether that's hardware-deficiency (which I suspect), or software-selected, I don't know yet.

I will have a go at opening this - and my collection of Xentas - up at some stage. However, at the moment, stress-levels over Christmas have been a little high... Ma seriously ill, my recent surgery became infected, then dog was hit by a car (is recovering ok)... but that was just the start... then things really started to go downhill!

I will also join in playing with the firmware updates (which look really exciting) but, at the moment, anything that induces stress is being avoided!

There's more screws under the rubber feet - took me ages to work that out!

Thank you for this... I'll get me screwdriver...

Edit - and thanks for admitting it took you ages... I have stared at it, pushed, pulled, twisted, wriggled, wobbled...

The original firmware makes use of a database owned by the manufacturer. (iradio168.com)
This is the case for the Radio, TV and Shoutcast links!

There is no way to influence the contents of this database. So if the manufacturer some day decides to stop with these products they will probably kill the database.
We see the same thing happening now with the Penbex devices.
Initially I made patches to the original firmware so that our own database was used and we could edit and add streams.

Then I found some serious bugs and one of them being the killerbug which is present in all original firmwares.
The killerbug randomly corrupts flash memory. As a result one dcay your device will stop working.
So I decided to stop releasing the patched firmware versions and just focus on the listenlive firmware.

I have what appears to be one of these SkyTC devices, bought in Sweden (from Kjell och Company) badged as a Roxcore article number 91808. It came with the large remote control.

After working more or less reliably for a while (I can go into this in much more detail if requested) it spontaneously collapsed into a state in which the only things it will do for me are these:
  • on powering up, it displays "roxcore (R)" for about five seconds
  • then the screen goes blank for about half a second
  • and then the "roxcore (R)" display returns for arbitrarily long (I left it on one occasion for more than 24 hours)
  • and the only stimulus I can make it respond to in that state is a five-second press of the power button, which makes it power off.
(This is in fact the third such device I've had.  The first two developed the same fault, only worse, in that they wouldn't even respond to the power button.  They were replaced under guarantee, but now the guarantee period has expired.)

I'm wondering whether the manufacturer-supplied firmware self-destructed in some way (the "killerbug" mentioned elsewhere on these pages?) and whether there's any way I could now load the listenlive firmware instead.  (How I wish I'd known earlier about listenlive!)

Many thanks in advance for any helpful suggestions.

This is exactly what I call the killerbug. When I was talking about it with a friend who develops firmware for a big company in Aisa, the first thing he said is "on purpose".
Since there are a fair number of bugs that look like mistakes I am not 100% sure if this is on purpose or not. Fact is that the oldest model, the Xenta, had a lot of defectives after the warranty period.

For this reason I am no longer hosting any of the original firmware images, the risk of killing the device is too high.

Anyway, I can fix it for you.. contact me via mail..

Your Disgo is suitable for Listenlive software, mine has been running for a few months.

Install the loader software from the "Files" page first:

Llfirmware Loader For Disgo Rm001
Loader file to upgrade from original Disgo TVGo RM001 firmware to ListenLive firmware

Then you can install this from the same page:

Llfirm V1.4 All Models
ListenLive firmware version 1.4

The listenlive takes a long time to install, so be patient!

Good luck.

That is an old post.

You can find the latest firmware files here

Loader version 2 and firmware 1.42 are there.
If you wait a bit, firmware 1.43 will be available.

Thank you very much for the reply!

Now I have downloaded 'LLFirmware_loader_v2_for_Rexcore_510.0.1' and 'LLFirm_V1.42_All_models' and all the files have been extracted on to a SDCard.

Could you advise what is the actual procedure to upgrade the firmware? I have inserted the SDcard and tried both 'Online' and Internal Memory' of   'Firmware update' under the Setting menu, but was not successful. An error message 'File Error' has received when choosing 'internal memory'?

Does anybody know what is the procedure for starting to upgrade the following firmware for a brand new Otek 510 unit (which comes with a firmware V1.7)? 

I have downloaded 'LLFirmware_loader_v2_for_Rexcore_510.0.1' and 'LLFirm_V1.42_All_models'.

Thanks in advance!

1.7 firmwares do not support upgrading from sd card. Forst you need to copy the loader to the internal memory and upgrade to the loader.. From the loader you can upgrade to listenlive firmware via sd card. To get the loader on internal memory connect the devica via mini usb to a pc Copy it to the device and then makevsure to go to "mycomputer" and eject the device. (not the same as eject from the taskbar)

Thanks for the advice!

I have followed the steps 2b from README, but the process seems never be finished after a final 'OK' was pressed.

There was a message 'UPDTING NOW .......' and then it disappeared after a short while, the display was just stuck there, nothing was happening until it was switched off / on manualy. The radio goes then back to original. Not sure if the right loader was used.

By the way, the load file LLFirmware_loader_v2_for_Pearl KMP510.4.0_RM003 was used, my Otek Radio is KMP510.1, firmware

V1.7

Hi!

For my Otek 510 unit I have downloaded 'Llfirmware Loader V2 For Otek Rm001 ' and 'LLFirm_V1.42_All_models'.

And it's successfully established.

Good luck!

I'm wondering whether the manufacturer-supplied firmware self-destructed in some way (the "killerbug" mentioned elsewhere on these pages?) and whether there's any way I could now load the listenlive firmware instead.  (How I wish I'd known earlier about listenlive!)

Many thanks in advance for any helpful suggestions.
ok new here and this is my first post  i manage to reflash my roxcore and it's a nice working divice but as Stoffe say this buggy v1.7 got one of my as well but the new one has this nice soft in it now. i used Llfirmware Loader V2 For Rexcore 510.0 and then Llfirm V1.43 All Models thanks fore this.

You need to be registered and logged in to download files.
If you are logged in and still can not download then check if your system/browser accepts cookies because that is used to keep you logged in.

Anyway, I can fix it for you.. contact me via mail.. voyager2003@zonnet.nl


Wow!  And you did!  I've said it already in private correspondence, but let me say it here too.  Great job.  Thank you very much.  Not only does it work again now, but it's about a zillion times more cool with your firmware installed.

Many many thanks.

Hi

found my way here after my Disgo failed to power up today ? no life battery or usb power supply - read the postings about the killer bug - I tried plugging into pc - did not recognise - anything i can do?

By sheer fluke i received today a faulty Xenta from ebay (the original idea to keep for spares for disgo-DOH!) - anyway this one is stuck on inerent radio on boot screen so does this one hold more hope than the disgo?

 

Any help greatly received

Kind Regards

Quote: I have a Vistaquest VQ ITR100 model.  It is okay but I specifically purchased this to get a SF station KNBR 680 since the AM reception is so poor.  Of course, KNBR changed their URL address and this unit cannot pick it up the new address.  I have tried updating the firmware from the unit's menu but it returns an error message "Network Error".  Vistaquest technical support is no help they do not seem to know or care about how the unit operates.

How can I update the firmware from this site (if that is even possible)?

Thanking you in advance, Jay.

SkyTC is a Chinese company that created a hand full of internet radio/tv player models and they are selling these under many different brand names on the market. In most cases the hardware is the same. However, firmware from one model can not be loaded onto another model. There are ways around that. The devices are based on Linux but so far SkyTC has failed to supply the GPL code.

SkyTC knows they are violating GPL licenses and stated that they will never comply. Also, SkyTC is aware of the many bugs and broken features in the firmware of our devices. They will not support us and will not provide any updates. They only care about new deliveries and new customers.
A good example of this "strategy" is the Arnova. If you buy one today you will probably get firmware 1.8.5. If you bought one earlier and have firmware version 1.7 then you are out of luck.
So if you are thinking of buying one of their devices and do not want to load alternative firmware, then think again!

I have started a new project creating a completely alternative firmware. New menus (graphics, layout etc) and new features (RSS, Video streaming services etc)
skytc image
The following models are known to be originating from SkyTC:
Aldi/Envivo PO1119, Mediabox 135, (Archos) Arnova, Xoro, HMT350, Otek, Pearl Auvisio IPTV-2335, KMP510, Xenta, Aigo/Aiguo, LinePro, WiWa eRTV208, Foxman, LookeeTV, Roxcore EZ-Play

To get the most out of your device, you should load one of the modified firmwares. After that you will have all the original features and you will be using the radio & tv database from this server.
Furthermore, when you register on this site, your 'username' will show up on your device and the stations you have selected as "MyFavorites" will also show up and you have the ability to add and modify database station entries via this website.

The devices are available with at least two different remote controls (see below) and with different internal flash memory configurations.

Right now it seems we have found how the memory size is part of the model number.

KMP510.x.y

x=0 for 512 Mb models                     ~ 40Mb available as Internal Flash disk
x=1 for 1 Gb models                         ~ 500 Mb available as Internal Flash disk
x=2 for 2 Gb models                          ~ 1.5 Gb available as Internal Flash disk

SkyTC did not want to tell what the differences between the RM001, RM002 and RM003 models are (If there are any at all... perhaps its just the shipment number )

Hi all,
my device seems to have caught the killer bug. Is there a remedy? I heard that some people in the forum did recover their devices...Any help appreciated.
