Diyomate A6 TV BOX is a networked media player running Android 4.0 (ICS) and powered by Cortex A5 Telechips TCC8620 processor, and the company – Diyomate Electronic Technology –  is showcasing their new device at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair on April 13 – 16, 2012.

Here are the specifications of this set-top box:

  • System Memory – 1 GB DDR3
  • Video Codecs – H.264, VC1, ASP, DivX 3.x for 720p, 1080i and 1080p resolutions.

You can watch the video below to learn more about Diyomate A6 TV BOX.

Diyomate A6 TV BOX set-top box should be available in May and cost 45 USD (MOQ: 1000). So I suppose the retail price should be around or below 90 USD.

There is no product page for the A6 yet, but in time, you may get more information on Diyomate website. You can find more information on Diyomate A6 page.

The actual box for retail sales is based on TCC8920 and don’t support google services (don’t let to add google account), don run HD videos (some player run it but without audio), not rooted. And I don’t think any developer is working on this chip for ROMs etc.

I managed to get updated ROM (update.zip) for it from manufacturer, but it still have all above problems. If you think it helps you contact me.

cnxsoft :@ Y S Thanks for the update.You’re right, it’s quite difficult to get the kernel and other GPL software source from Telechips or their customers, so it’s unlikely work will be done on this box. I’ve started asking code for TCC8925 (which should be similar to TCC8920) since I’ve purchased a device, but I don’t hold my breath.

USB debugging can *only* be used by connecting USB to the USB port INSIDE the A6. The screws to open the case are under the 4 little plastic knobs on the bottom. The password (if needed) is 123456, 1234567, or 12345678. Just try. Password may be not needed! Some tweaks and root is possible with files from tatubias. I will upload them yo my dropbox, together with a few needed drivers and tools. Unfortunatly I do not have a WIFI module inside my box and Therefore also no working Market. I have read you hace to connect (first time) to your Google account by WIFI to get Play store working.
