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?

    There is the latest DVB apk with support for DVB-C included.
    It is coming straight from VS engineers

    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.

    • May 8th, 2017 at 21:33 | #4

      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.

    May 8th, 2017 at 21:49 | #5

    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…

  5. May 8th, 2017 at 21:55 | #6

    @Ygor Almeida
    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?

    There is a box on ebay uk claiming freesat in name but what it actually does who knows. It also runs Android 6.0

    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 may well not be a viable solution in this case.

    As a side note, my Wetek Openelec box has been rock solid since I set it up. It’s only running as a backend, I have multiple frontends around the house to stream to, but it’s not needed a reboot in about a year and records to my network share without issue.

    @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 to air stations (and iin the EPG positions which you choose) which do not pay the exorbitant fees to be included on the Freesat EPG.

    Some people may actually prefer to see for example BBC4 HD on EPG position 4 rather than Channel 4 SD or whatever the Freesat consortium insists that you must watch on that EPG position.

    Power Supply – DC 12V/12A ?

  12. Steve
    May 9th, 2017 at 16:35 | #13

    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.

    May 9th, 2017 at 18:00 | #14

    My guess is that Wetek Play 3 would use S905D.
    It’ll be commercial within a few months.

  14. rebeL
    May 9th, 2017 at 23:56 | #15

    @Ron, from where did you get this info? Did Wetek3 will have Audiosound passthrough? Oherwise I will buy this cheaper Mecool…

    May 10th, 2017 at 03:50 | #16

    @rebeL
    As I wrote – this is MY GUESS.

    It’s very probable. I don’t see why not!

    To be more precise, , it’s rather logical to assume that it would have S905D-H (with HDCP for Netflix etc).

    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.

    Seems this box got DRM for Level1 widevine and mostlikely in few days will have the netflix HD app running HD content

  18. May 24th, 2017 at 16:12 | #19

    @ovi
    Good news. I guess it’s not with the default Netflix app, but the modified one so people can watch 720p Netflix.

  25. May 26th, 2017 at 09:27 | #27

    @linuxman
    Miranda Chen works for Videostrong, so it’s true.
    Now that does not mean, if you buy a KI Pro on the web today, it will have Widevine L1 and/or HDCP. Better wait to make sure those are standard features, since they cannot be added by software update.

    May 29th, 2017 at 16:29 | #31

    @blackie

    Yes you can update to android 7.1.1 with DRM widevine level 1.
    You will need an USB to USB father – father cable and the amlogic burning tools

  30. May 29th, 2017 at 16:33 | #32

    @Ovi
    While upgrading firmware from Android 6.0 to Android 7.1 should not be a problem, I’ve been told (for other devices) that things like DRM and HDCP keys had to be set at the factory, and no firmware update would fix that.
    If blackie is getting an earlier KI Pro without DRM, will he be able to update to DRM with Widevine Level 1?

  31. blackie
    May 30th, 2017 at 21:53 | #33

    Can be that the DRM keys are already included in the boxes available for pre-sale?
    Or we have to wait until some “final revision of box” with DRM keys is released?
    Does anybody know the answer or can some box owner check the DRM status with “DRM Info” application from Google Playstore?

    TBH, I’m a bit bored with TV box reviews, especially tuner ones, as I reviewed 3 in the last few months, and the last one (U5PVR) is causing me some troubles due to issues in the first firmware that wasted a lot of my time.

    But if somebody is interested in getting a free KI Pro sample, in exchange of doing a review on CNX. I’m all for it. Preferably somebody with a motorized satellite dish setup since I’ve never done that.

    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.

    There is an flash sale on gearbest for this box happening now [1] but not much of an discount if compared to the price ( $80 ) posted here in early May ( would have expected $60 to be a flash price ) and similar price on the device on geekbying as well [2].

    There is also a youtube review here [3] but not a teardown which might have highlighted if the device had to be so bulky in design ( too bulky for my taste to have in the living room compared to other tv boxes slick design )

    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

    That is ENTIRELY correct. The only exception seems to be Widevine L3 (which can be done with software). But that doesn’t get you very far with Netflix 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.

    HERE IS A CUSTOM ROM made by Superceleron. He makes AMAZING roms for so many different devices. Expect an “Android TV” build in the near future. This will likely work much better than the stock buggy rom:

  61. July 1st, 2017 at 09:31 | #63

    @Justin
    It’s a bit more complicated than that. I wrote about it @ http://www.cnx-software.com/2015/12/30/why-doesnt-your-android-tv-box-play-full-hd-or-4k-videos-in-netflix/ and then http://www.cnx-software.com/2016/11/28/how-to-play-netflix-hd-on-any-android-device-with-widevine-level-1-drm/

    So it looks like you can use Netflix up to 480p on pretty much any Android devices, even without Widevine Level 3.
    Widevine Level 1 is necessary for 720p, 1080p and 4K, but not sufficient.
    The hack in the second link should allow you to watch Netflix @ 720p (HD), but if you want 1080p or 4K, the hack won’t do, and you need certifications from Netflix. You must be able to prove sales of a large number of TV boxes in the target market for Netflix to start talking to you, and this is not going to happen with VideoStrong.

  62. Mr Netflixer
    July 2nd, 2017 at 16:54 | #64

    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 is possible is the WeTek Hub and Play2.

    Hi,

    two questions to everyone who is using this box:

    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).

    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.

    Regards.

    what other options we have with dual tuner or at list with “t2” in a normal price?

    Or can we add tuner option by usb somehow to a tv box?
    is this possible?

    the last days the status bar desappear .
    is this a problem or done something?

    Another problem for sure is with hdmi-cec ..
    if you enable one time, the “one key power off”, then even you disable it, the most of the times this function is on.

      do you have the basic status bar and notification bar with this just latest update you say?

      it is good idea to tell what’s happening and not just say .. “this is the latest update..”

    @Marius

    look up……here in this forum ” pk ” listed link firmware its non ATV use USB burning tool for Amlogic to flash it on the box
    KI_PRO_AVL6862-NMF26Q-20170519.183520.V0321.img

    or just use root explorer to delete the atv store apk and put from other firm ware the one you use

    @ championway

    none of those two sollutions worked for me.

    I’ve got the KI_PRO_AVL6862-NHG47L-20170905.020920.V0619 version back by installing TWRP, run as root, and than flashed the recovery.img from KI_PRO_AVL6862-NHG47L-20170905.020920.V0619.

    After that, i have rebooted to recovery and i was able to flash KI_PRO_AVL6862-NHG47L-20170905.020920.V0619
