"humrahi33" , i have downloaded the firmware for my rikomagic version but didn't tried it .

If you want , i have uploaded it to a skydrive , maybe "aff-tar" got it wrong , maybe the resolution is fixed to 1080 but the DPI is not how he would have want it and it stayed the same .

So let me know .

Download the beta for MK802IV(130805):S/N from 201305****to 201306**** :

I got an answer from rikomagic .

The video and not the UI is suppose to be 1080 on this rom . (Like playing 1080 video on my samsung galaxy s2 i9100 on an external display )


I am still waiting because 1080 in the UI is what i am looking for .

My main purpose is text ... even if the DPI will still have to remain large most of the time BUT NOT ALWAYS

And yes , i am also from signal processing , but the rikomagic is not just for that . ;

Just to clarify, I'm comparing against two references:
1. MK802 (first model) with Uberoid 1.2 and modified scripts.bin:
* The resolution is true 1080p and scaled by the HDMI driver
* The video playback is perfect
2. MK802IV with NEOTV CROM (http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.php? ... net-Go-CR9) and fixed kernel (http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.php? ... L8188-WiFi):
* The resolution is true 1080p and scaled by the HDMI driver
* The video playback freezes for a while every few seconds, but runs slick between the freezes. This is much better than in all the stock MK802IV firmwares.

I just made the mistake of buying one of these units thinking that it could actually play video without stuttering - video is the whole reason I bought this.

Are they planning to fix this?

Is my unit the same as others? Mine's from Rikomagic US - it's one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00E6BWH2S/

Hey guys ,

I just got another reply from rikomagic .

This rom : 1.1 MK802IV beta rom , is just a phase . After the testers will say that the video is o.k in 1080 ....

They will publish the UI also in 1080 . So everything will be in 1080 .


So give rikomagic your feedback about 1080 video ... but i think that you don't need to add things like that the MKV encoder is not o.k (In this stage)

because that will cause things to work not good ( 1080 and MKV ) ... Too many (complicated) things to fix at once ... The outcome couldn't be good .

So i think, That after the UI will be also in 1080 then it will be time to fix the MKV encoder (Even if there will be still missing DPI settings ... Which will be the next thing) .


Cheers ;)

humrahi33 ,

I see you had wifi problems before the update .

Consider attaching an external antenna or fixing according to rikomagic instructions .

I am going to do so myself when my external wifi antenna order will arrive .

(Will keep you posted+details when i succeed )


How is the 1080 video ( I suppose with mp4 ) ?
