Mygica ATV586 Amlogic S805 Android TV Box Comes with DVB-T2 or ATSC Tuner

One of the first quad core Android DVB-T2 receiver was VideoStrong K1 that now sells for $80 on Aliexpress, but there’s now some competition from Geniatech, with the same Amlogic S805 processor, thanks to Mygica ATV586 Android TV box featuring either a DVB-T2 or ATSC tuner.

ATV586 Specifications:

  • SoC – Amlogic S805 quad core ARM Cortex A5 @ 1.5GHz with quad core Mali-450MP GPU
  • System Memory – 1 GB DDR3
  • Storage – 4 GB NAND flash + micro SD slot (up to 32GB)
  • Connectivity – 10/100M Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • Video & Audio Output – HDMI 1.4
  • Video Codec – H.265, H.264 etc.. up to 1080p60
  • Tuner
    • DVB-T & DVB-T2 standard with single input terminal (75 Ohm); Frequency – 48.25 – 863.25 MHz; Bandwidth: 6, 7 or 8 MHz
    • ATSC also supported (with a different tuner)
  • USB – 2x USB 2.0 ports
  • Misc – IR sensor
  • Power Supply – 5V/2A
  • Dimensions – 210 x 171 x 35 mm
  • Weight – 160 grams

The box runs Android 4.4.2 (Kitkat) with various pre-installed apps like Kodi 14.1, YouTube, Netflix, Hulu and more. The DVB-T2 function is allegedly supported directly within Kodi, which might be an advantage against competing solutions, and the system can also stream digital TV from the box to your smartphone or tablet. Other features include OTA firmware update, EPG and TV recording to an external hard drive.

The box should be available by the end of the month for $139 (MSRP), which is quite a mark-up compared to Videostrong K1 price, but hopefully actual retail price will be a bit lower, and software may justify the price. Mygica ATV586 must be based on Geniatech ATV586, but with some modifications like the addition of an external Wi-Fi antenna, which replaces optical S/PDIF on the Geniatech device.

  1. 139 usd?!?!?!?! Good joke from geniatech. Instead that they release android 5 for their existing S8xx devices they preffer to sell new devices with android 5

    Mygica = Geniatech

    And Geniatech announced their ATV1900AC box (S812 SoC) for $169. It’s posted here cpl days ago.

    Official Android 4.4.4 SDK for Amlogic does not exist and I doubt that Chinese engineers put that much effort to bump 4.4.2 sdk to 4.4.4 😀 There is 4.4.2 SDK and 5.0.2.

  3. @dr. Bormental

    MyGica/Geniatech support is very bad. They always preffer to release new device with new software. They already have S802 and S805 devices in market but they never care about end users.

    Their support for users finish when you give them your money and after that you are in your own.
