Will I be able to play the latest movies in 4K and, for example, in the MKV format?
You will, but it is necessary to check the parameters of the video file, for example via Media info on your PC or a video player such as KODI, VLC, etc. Compare the parameters with the maximum values ??given in the specification of the multimedia centre. For example, these are the codecs specifications:
H.265 HEVC MP-10 @ L5.1 up to 4Kx2K @ 60fps
H.264 AVC HP @ L5.1 up to 4Kx2K @ 30fps, H.264 MVC up to 1080p @ 60fps
MPEG-4 ASP @ L5 up to 1080P @ 60fps (ISO-14496)
Can I play movies from a network drive or via Wifi streaming services?
You can. Make sure the M4 is getting a good WiFi signal - ideally, the WiFi device should be directly visible from the multimedia device. The longer the distance and the more obstacles in the way, the worse the WiFi signal. This can also be verified by applying a WiFi analyzer to track the optimal signal strength. However, network connection through a UTP network cable will always provide better results than WiFi.
How do I set the default Android desktop interface when I start my device?
(Deactivating the EVOLVEO Launcher)
On the first Iron Man screen, click the Home icon and select the Classic Launcher. Alternatively, go to settings -> launcher -> deactivate -> restart AndroidBox.
You can also use a third-party application, such as AutomateIt, to run KODI automatically every time the AndroidBox is turned on.
After switching off and then switching on, the device sets itself to Chinese language. What do I do?
Find the settings (globe symbol), set your desired language, and save. Return to the main screen, select My apps -> Other settings -> HDMI CEC. Here, only the "One button shutdown" option should be disabled and the other options need to be ON.
How do I fix a problem with "green" image?
In the Evolveo settings, go to Display -> RGB box. Turn this option ON.
