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.
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.
Jean-Luc started CNX Software in 2010 as a part-time endeavor, before quitting his job as a software engineering manager, and starting to write daily news, and reviews full time later in 2011.

i wonder when all this chinese boxes doomed to oblivion will stop come out.
Do they need to clean stock inventories?
Oh yeah i forgot android 5! lets buy it….NOT!!!
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.
going off topic here>>>> hey stane is there new updates for the tronsmart prometheus. or any news about it thanks.
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.
owww welll so what are you working on at the moment stane
