Can't vouch for this but a Youtube user asks if the H96 Pro and R-Box Pro are the same - "It's the same box with different custom branding, and there will be others on this same box". youtube.com/wat…Y7w (Youtube videos with computerised voiceovers annoy me :p)!

Also branded Vensmile T92, I think?

I quoted this the other day

This article about Amlogic S905, S905X and S912 processor speeds is interesting http://www.cnx-software.com/2016/08/28/amlogic-s905-and-s912-processors-appear-to-be-limited-to-1-5-ghz-not-2-ghz-as-advertised/

One comment from diegor says: "The trick here is that Amlogic kernel reports 2.02 GHz, even through it’s apparently not running at that speed. That’s why it took so long to discover the issue, as people needed to run benchmarks at various frequencies to find out."

what about customs charges?

No AC wireless which is a big oversight

Is there anything with these specs + wireless ac?

what about customs charges?


General concensus for Gearbest items ex-China is that unless you request big-name courier delivery such as DHL or UPS, the other shipping methods (including "British Express") do not tend to be pulled by customs. There was/is even a HUKD user who guaranteed that an item shipped via a non-name-courier would not attract customs interest! My own experiences of many orders with Gearbest tends to support this theory.
If customs charges are applied, the cost would be VAT (about £11) + shipper's admin fee (about £10), so around an additional £21 assuming customs accurately assess the value of goods+shipping.

​actually it will be much less. I got £100 box a few years a go via dhl. Was £5ish. they put the item value on the front really low, not the actual price you paid.

I saw your thread a few weeks ago, but whilst looking up S912 boxes last night I found this code from a few articles. It's not a repost if the price is cheaper.
Edited by: "louiselouise" 3rd Sep 2016

I've been using the Acemax M12N for a couple of weeks now and talking to a few other people that have similar boxes, some manufacturers and using the same hardware in their own case with the same firmware apart from launchers and basic customisation.

None of the S912 firmwares come with a working navigation/notification bar and a few other omissions, so I made a modded firmware that at least resolves a few issues.

Auto adjust display rate is not working, whether in firmware of Kodi/SPMC in all firmwares.

It looks as if the SDK needs some improvement before things can really move forward but the S912 has possibilities, especially with the updated GPU.

Where the S912 really shines at the moment is in regards to it's video colour quality, which has great depth and has only been matched by my Rk3288.

When using Kodi, leave the amcodec switched off and with SPMC, switch it off as it has no use with these latest SOC's and will prevent video from showing with some formats. SPMC yields slightly smoother results than Kodi 16.

There is a lot of talk at the moment about the actual speed of the CPU, which has been advertised as 2.0Ghz but may, from tests that some have run, to only between 1.5 and 1.7Ghz with a sort of quick burst mode that can reach 2.0Ghz for brief periods, although as far as I am aware, confirmation from AMLogic is still forthcoming.

Mine came though DHL and I ended up paying a whopping £21. £9 duties and £11 DHL handling payment, which was very unusual as the last box I bought only added £3.50, which I didn't mind paying.

Surface shipping is the delivery method least likely to become subject to duties.

you dont have to pay that handling charge you know:)

your contract is with Gearbest not DHL...if you have paid it then it is to late, but next time refuse and email them citing there is no contract with you and them and you suggest they go to Gearbest for their handling fee

works 100% of the time, apart from parcel force who kidnap your goods until you pay

Oh I tried that and they would not budge and if you look at their terms and conditions, they can charge it if they like and there is nothing that can really be done.

Does the Netflix app on these do 4K material?

Original Poster

Just to clarify, there was no mention of the code on chrisshein's thread last night or even earlier today - sorry if I've put his nose out of joint but cheap prices are what HUKD is all about. He seems to have edited his post to show the code now - but I haven't "stolen" his deal. I found the code through reading S912 articles and blogs.

For some reason his thread says £54.71 (?) and not £54.87.

No. None of them will have the necessary widevine level support and are probably unlikely to get it for HD, let alone 4K.

Even then, only at 30Hz.

Have a look at wetek, they have what you're looking for

Is there an easy way to add IR support for this device. If my Harmony Remote wont control it, the family wont use it. I have a Dell MCE USB IR device plugged into a Windows 7 PC at the moment. Wondering if this, or these classes of device, has PnP support in Android?

it's illegal in the uk to charge handling fee for postage, some old postal law from ages ago.

their terms and conditions don't mean anything.

but it is difficult to fight with their workers who have no clue.

I did some digging and spoke to a friend who works at HMRC who confirmed that fees charged for paying the relevant duties and handling is something that many a delivery company (including Royal Mail) do and is perfectly legal as far as they are concerned.

I wonder if this box is rooted? Many of the newer S912 boxes haven't had root (Beelink GT1 and MXQ Plus M12N are two that come to mind).

Weirdly, one reviewer also thinks the GT1's remote isn't as responsive as the older one supplied with the MiniMXIII or MiniMX.

​No idea if legal or not, but HMRC would be the last people to ask if you wanted an actual answer to this. He/she wouldn't have a clue about whether the company has a right to charge this....only the fact that they can bill for the service and that the income would be taxable as a valid service as incurred regardless of whether the actual activity was legal or not.

Gearbest sent me wrong item, I had to return at my own cost!!! Yes even PayPal said it's my responsibility to pay for postage! £9.45 it cost to send an android box back!!! beware!

When these boxes have Android quasimodo, red stripe down the side, a hyper jump port 2.00 and a free signed picture of Ant and Dec then I'll be buying

I will never deal with gearbest after they've sent me 2 wrong items and it's down to you to return at your own cost... I wouldn't send them back so I got a part refund, sold the items on eBay and made my money back that way..

Why have the boxes gone up in price so much recently?
