Mecool KI PRO Hybrid Android TV Box with Amlogic S905D SoC, DVB-T2 & DVB-S2 Tuners Sells for $80

VideoStrong has become popular among people wanting an Android TV box with a tuner thanks to their affordable and customizable products such as K1 Plus T2 S2, or KIII Pro coming with DVB-T/T2 and DVB-S/S2 tuners. AFAIK, all there products so far came with a single demodulator meaning you could watch or record satellite or terrestrial TV, but not do both at the same time, for example watching a channel via DVB-S2, and recording one via DVB-T2. Amlogic S905D is supposed to support this, and upcoming products like Sen5 Android set-top box do come with two demodulators. Mecool KI PRO – based on the processor – has just been launched, pre-selling for $79.99 on Banggood with shipping scheduled for mid May.

Mecool KI Pro specifications:

  • SoC –  Amlogic S905D quad core ARM Cortex-A53 @ up to 1.5 GHz with  Mali-450MP GPU
  • System Memory – 2 GB DDR4
  • Storage – 16GB eMMC flash + micro SD card slot up to 32GB
  • Video Output – HDMI 2.0a up to 4K @ 60Hz with support for HDR10 and HLG, and 3.5mm AV (composite video) jack
  • Audio Output – HDMI, AV (stereo audio), optical S/PDIF
  • Video Codecs – 10-bit H.265, and VP9 Profile 2 up to 4K60, H.264 up to 4K30, AVS+ and other codecs up to 1080p60
  • Tuner – DVB-T/T2 and DVB-S/S2 tuners with two connectors
  • Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet, dual band 802.11 b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.1 LE
  • USB – 4x USB 2.0 host ports
  • Misc – Power button and LED, IR receiver
  • Power Supply –  DC 12V/1A
  • Dimensions – 130 x 120 x 32 mm
  • Weight – 163 grams

Another advantage of the device is that it runs the latest Android 7.1 operating system. The interface looks the same as with older devices, so I’d expect the same DTV app to be used in the box. KI Pro ships with a HDMI cable, a remote control, a power adapter, and a user manual. You may be able to find (more or less accurate) details on the manufacturer’s page.

Thanks to Natsu for the tip.

On vídeo strong page it also shows some dvb-c and dvb-c + dvb-s2 combo.

But i cant find those on any site.

Also dvb-t2 specs meets all the information and reqs for dvb-c. Does anyone know if that dvb-t2 does work with C (cable)?

On previous Unit here at cnx i saw some posts about dvb-c improve on newer app dtv on Android and tvheadend while in libreelec.

Any clue about this?

Hmm, do these things do ‘freesat’ properly? I’ve had one TV with a DVB-S2 but no freesat and it picked up every channel without prioritising my local broadcasts, e.g. Russia Today was channel 1, not say BBC 1.

In fact when you scan it follows sat order. And you can edit and sort channels by your self. But some pids change and etc. FTA channels are like this.

without native linux DVB drivers compiled for Android 7.1 as a generic option, and only a single app that talks the closed API in that DTV app… then it’s not going to sell on mass for use with the many 3rd party linux DVB apps and transcoders, streamers etc…

Except when I got a “proper box” later it had the localisation thing sorted, physically local channels appeared earlier in the list. That’s probably only possible with an online service for assistance. So do these boxes have access to one?

Freesat is the trademark of a joint venture between the BBC and ITV and, as such, will probably not be available on these type of boxes. I have just set up (I was too lazy to bother before) a Wetek Openelec box running Tvheadend to show what appear to be the Freesat channels. EPG now starts on BBC 1 and runs through the UK channels in what appears to be a logical manner. http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=217719 This is for Tvheadend running as a backend and Kodi as the frontend. I have no idea what the boxes above will be running so this… Read more »

@CampGareth “Hmm, do these things do ‘freesat’ properly?” Freesat is a proprietary service using a proprietary EPG. so why do you expect a device which is not a licensed “Freesat” box to do “freeat properly”? As with all “free-to-air” (non-proprietary) boxes, you need to do a scan and then edit the resulting services according to your own preferences, or in the same order as the Freesat EPG if you feel compelled to conform to the dictat of the Freesat consortium. This may be inconvenient but the huge advantage is that you will be able to see all the extra free… Read more »

Freesat uses a proprietary EPG (and has lots of bouquets so that different areas get the right regional versions of channels on the right EPG channel number) It uses proprietary Huffman compression to carry EPG data. (As does Freeview HD – but not SD)

It IS reverse engineered (TV Headend supports it) – but i suspect selling products with support for it could be legally dubious, and is only relevant to the UK market.

All these Single Tuner Boxes are pretty useless as Networked PVR setups for a Home TV viewing Network.
There simply are too many limitations when it comes to Recording and watching TV using a Single Tuner if you are using Multiple TV viewing clients at the same time.

Cheap USB Dual Tuner PVR networked setups using LibreELEC Kodi media builds (backported DVB drivers), are now very do-able on stock standard AMLogic S905(x) Hardware.

This does NOT mean Widevine Level 1 DRM support. And I doubt this box will ever have it either.
And I seriously doubt HDCP will ever come with these cheap boxes – that costs money and the profit margins on this type of hardware do not justify it.

Be aware those looking for 1080p Netflix – there is no way it will work on this box. You need actual Netflix Hardware Approval and I’ve never seen Cheap Chinese sourced AMLogic boxes come with Netflix approval.

I think Widevine Level L1 would receive 1080p video, wouldn’t it? Obviously no 4k. If you need more than L1 to get 1080p netflix, I would abandon that service and learn how to obtain the content yourself. We’ll be waiting decades before something comes out that’s actually compatible lol

It’s one of the first Amlogic 7.1 releases…. so the answer to all of your questions will be “likely not”

It took well over a year for Lollipop to become partially stable. Marshmallow still isn’t as stable as Lollipop and it’s been out a while. I feel so bad when people are “early adopters’ – it makes me cringe.

Everyone, do yourself a favor and WAIT for the updates to start. Have any of you had NEW s905 or s905x devices when they first came out? They SUCKED. The firmware was slapped together in such a messy fashion, it was absolutely embarrassing. They rush these things to the market, hoping to sucker as many people in as possible due to the “perceived upgrade” of the OS.

It took well over a year for AML Lollipop to be half stable, why would this be any different folks? You do NOT want to be a beta tester.

Thx for clearing this up. Again… 😉 The whole “all I need is Widevine L1” to get 1080p Netflix is one of the biggest B.S. misinformation campaigns you see bouncing around the internet. What is also going on now is the Google Playstore will not even let you install any Netflix App without media player Hardware also being “Netflix Certified”. Watch out if the device is rooted as well. Once you have “Netflix hardware certification” even 4K Netflix is possible on regular tablet Android using the 4K capable Android TV Netflix App. The only Android Tablet OS devices where that… Read more »

In my country (Italy) actually there are a couple of sat channels 4k HDR-HLG (scrambled or not). I would like to know if connecting this box to a tv 4k HDR (but not HLG) it is possible to see this channels in HDR mode (it should pop up “HDR” tooltip).

The second question is about youtube. Does anyone tested video samples 4k HDR? My tv (LG uh770v) has youtube app but does not support HDR (again, does not popup “HDR” message on start playing video).

Thank you all.

Latest version fixes the dvb-c tuning to *500hz frequencies with SR6000, however the scan doesn’t get all channels on all transponders, there are a number of transponders where the scan only finds the first 2 or 3 channels, missing a number of them afterwards…

The accented characters continue to appear wrong.

in official ki pro page there is a firmware.

Especially when the firmware they have there it is a problematic.

The launcher is faulty and the root it gives permission to anything without to ask.
Many times it freezes.
is there a newer?

I do not understand why they did not provide the links in official site like “Beta” and we have to contact them and ask about firmware.

Hi, i have problems with PVR in satellite mode. Sometimes after record tv program I go to pvr settings, record programs, I see the record, but when I play the program there is nothing.
I search for the record files and the .ts, ts1 … .tsXX have size cero. So the last file, for example .ts2 has a size great than cero but i can’t play this file neither.

I have this problem recording programs using the EPG and long programs.

Someone has the same problem?
I have the last firmware from July.

The display is attractive and does better yet my problem with it is: I connect my satellite to it and when I do not have transponder channels picked yet – When I tried to fix the errors in the list it makes the mistakes that one channel is duplicated when it is not yet allows a duplicate of another channel that I must remove.

is there any new “official” firmware?

One more
I installed many Netflix modified versions so I can see in 720p
The problem is that with every version I tried the video it is not so smooth
it loses frames and looks like the box finds it difficult.

For sure it is not problem with the internet, I have only for me a 50/5 vdsl connected with 5GHz or cable, so i thought that was because of the “high” temperature of the box so I installed a 12″ fun but even if I had 55-65 degrees the problem persists.
