Geniatech Showcases Amlogic T866 TV Box with 2 HDMI inputs, 1 HDMI output

Orange Pi Development Boards

Amlogic mostly makes SoCs for tablets, for example the M80x series, and TV boxes such as Amlogic S805 or S812, but they also have a processor family designed for Smart TVs such as Amlogic T866 quad core Cortex A9 processor @ 1.8 GHz coupled with an octa-core Mali-450MP. Somehow, Geniatech has designed ATV1866 TV box based on the latter support two HDMI inputs, and one HDMI output.

Amlogic_T866_TV_BoxThe box does not appears to support video recoding from the HDMI input, nor time-shifting, but the company showcased picture-in-picture (PiP) functionality, showing either input used in full screen or windowed mode on top of the Android user interface. HDMI version is 2.0 for the output, with H.265 codec supported, but I could not find details about the HDMI inputs.

The box is running Android 4.4 for now, but will certainly run Android 5.0 at launch. The company is still developing the product, and it’s unclear when it will be released.

The way he talks about it, it doesn’t seem very useful. Should have mentioned PVR functionality if it supports it.

I’d like to get in possession of this or similar device based on T866 to see what it can do. 3x hdmi 2.0 inputs, 1x hdmi 2.0 output, 2x usb2.0, 1xusb3.0, gigabit net…. not bad specs. Since it does have h264 1080p encoder, i believe PVR functionality is possible.

Nope, didn’t work on that device for very long time. Even don’t have it anymore.

If they manage to make it record its input(s) at decent quality and they don’t price it over-the-Moon,
I’d consider it.
Probably not for PIP.
