Firmware update v 1.2.0 for Ugoos UT6

Thursday, Apr 20, 2017 | Post by admin | 0 comment(s)

We have a lot of new features in this release

Ugoos UT6 finds it’s place on the market of middle-end TV Boxes, but it doesn’t mean we can’t provide functionality of our High-end boxes to RK3229 box.

OTA starts this day also, link for manual reflashing file down this article.

This is what we have for this release:

 

Masked HDMI

 

This feature will be very useful for those customers who prefer to use some streaming services (like Sky Go) and have problems because of HDMI detection in application. In order to prevent app system detect HDMI by particular application you can run: Settings – HDMI – masked HDMI. Masked HDMI force system not to include HDMI in device’s active output.

 

 

Time correction

 

Now you will be able to set their own ntp server, if you had problems with current one. Also, system will save power disconnection time and when you will plug in your device again, you will get more closest time until server will update it to a current values. This option first appeared on Ugoos S905 devices then S912, RK3288 and now in RK3229.

Set ntp server: settings – date & time – NTP server

 

 

Daydream

 

In this option, we add ability to choose and set actions for sleep timer and power key on RC

You can disable sleep timer at all or choose appropriate time and set RC power key using three positions: sleep and shutdown. In addition, bug with wake on motion feature was fixed.

Also, we added additional timer for action after day dream: sleep or turn off.

 

Display -> Daydream -> Power key action/Power action timer

 

 

Ethernet switcher

 

This feature let users attach additional LAN ports via USB. We add management tab in Ethernet settings, so now you can activate/deactivate and switch between LAN interfaces in one click. This feature was popular on Ugoos 4.4 Android devices based on RK3288 SoC and now we implemented it for RK3368 and RK3229.

 

Run Ethernet management: Settings – Network – Ethernet

 

 

HDMI color mode

 

For the majority of different TV screens and monitors device defines HDMI color mode automatically, but, due to some specifics, for a few amount of screen devices there is parameters incapability. So now, you can manually choose color mode from menu in order to choose appropriate one:

Automatic

RGB_0_255

RGB_16_235

YCbCr422

YCbCr444

YCbCr420

 

Run color mode settings: Settings – Display – HDMI Color Mode

 

 

Auto Frame Rate

 

During playback many video samples, we concluded that sometimes AFR function in KODI is choosing best options for playback due to different video parameters and sometimes choosing is not correct in other players. For more convenience, we set three options for Frame Rate:

 

System resolution

Video resolution priority

Frequency resolution priority

 

Kodi has their own Frame Rate settings, so these options enabled in other players with using generic codecs.

 

Run AFR settings: Settings - Display – Autoframerate

 

 

Debug Settings: Ugoos Log Viewer

 

Another exclusive option will be useful for developers. Simple switchers let you connect using ADB via USB or Wi-Fi.

 

 

Sound settings and Bitstream fix

For KODI users we make ability to turn on spdif passthrough and Bitstream in Android settings to make sure these features works correctly. Default output makes all settings standard if you use another app for playback. Passthrough should work if you turn on this function in both Android Settings and Kodi settings.

 

 

Minor bugs fixes and updates

In these few months, we have a huge feedback on small bugs and improvements our customers want us to fix and change. So for most of them we had a work on mistakes. Full changelog you can see down this article, here is the main we have:

  • EXT4 file system support is one of the most frequently mentioned improvement, so this release we also add it as in our Amlogic devices before.
  • For users who frequently connected UT6 with another PC (Android developers) now will have no problem with saving USB connection method after reboot.
  • Change closing apps functionality, so now you can use RC more effectively to close just one app or all of them.
  • Chrome and standard browser works stable with lots of tabs.
  • Updater functionality changed. Now you can keep using your TV Box while update downloading. Now you can choose update file manually without editing it’s name.
  • Now Ugoos settings and other custom functions translated on four languages: English, German, Russian and Chinese.
  • We add Ugoos KODI with our brand skin. You always can change it in settings or install another version in Play Market.
