DH108A Android 4.1 Media Player Powered by AllWinner A31

DH108A (aka K-A37) is the first AllWinner A31 Android set-top box I’ve ever come across. This full-sized media player comes with 2 GB RAM, 8 or 16 GB flash, and provides both Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity.

This Android 4.1.1 STB has the following specifications:

  • SoC – AllWinner A31 quad core Cortex A7 + PowerVR SGX544MP2 GPU
  • System Memory – 2GB RAM
  • Storage – 8 or 16GB NAND Flash  + microSD slot
  • Video Output – HDMI 1.4
  • Connectivity:
    • Ethernet – 10/100 Mbps (RJ45 port)
    • WIFI – 802.11 b/g/n
  • USB – 4x USB Host* ports  + 1 USB Device port (*Note: The specs on Alibaba indicate 4x USB OTG ports instead)
  • Power supply – 5V/2A
  • Weight – 110g
  • Dimensions -  115x115x23 mm

The device comes with a power adapter, a remote control, an HDMI cable, and a user manual. It may also be sold with a 2.4 GHz wireless mouse and keyboard or a fly mouse.

DH108A is not yet available for retail, but distributors can already request a quote for the device on Alibaba, so it should probably become available in a few weeks.

    Do chances of good Linux support look better for A31 or RK3188 at the moment? (My guess is RK3188 – thanks to Picuntu + Lima driver progress? But maybe the Allwinner source code leaks (:p) change even things up?

    It’s difficult to know. There are more people working on AllWinner processors, but due to the PowerVR GPU it may be impossible to get hardware acceleration for Linux, whereas there may be a better chance with RK3188 with its Mali GPU. I understand that in 2014, Ubuntu 14.04 should run on any ARM devices supporting Android, because the Mir display server can support Android drivers.

    2 other vendors for the same box:

    and

    The last one has a price bracket US $52 – 65 / Piece for 100 pieces.

    They most probably added a USB to SATA chipset.
