Egreat A11/A10/A5 - FAQ
« on: February 09, 2017, 04:27:34 PM »
Egreat Media Player

* Easy switch between subtitles / audio tracks in Egreat mediaplayer?  Egreat have implemented a one key switch for subtitles / audio tracks. http://en.egreatworld.com/comunity/index.php?threads/operation-guidance-one-key-switchover-function-on-audio-track-and-subtitle-show.401/
* Movie info in Egreat mediaplayer?  Guide here: http://en.egreatworld.com/comunity/index.php?threads/operation-guidance-egreat-a5-a10-new-function-show-show-details-in-file-playback.392/
* How to name directories/files for best thumbnail/poster indexing? Put each movie in a separate directory with both the movie and the directory having the same name,  full name of the movie plus the year. For example: /Kung Fu Panda 2010/Kung Fu Panda 2010.mkv. For series and episodes see this guide: http://en.egreatworld.com/comunity/index.php?threads/instructions-to-name-video-files-to-get-the-right-auto-posters-download-from-the-internet-directly.510/
* Frame skips with 23.976fps content? Early A5/A10 firmware had a problem with 23.976fps content being output at 24Hz. This has been resolved. If you experience this problem force install firmware 1.1.0.7 and then allow the box to auto update to latest firmware.
-A5 1.1.0.7: http://en.egreatworld.com/comunity/index.php?threads/new-a5bd_en_firmware_20170119_v1-1-0-7-rar-release-2017-01-19-v1-1-0-7.435/
-A10 1.1.0.7: http://en.egreatworld.com/comunity/index.php?threads/new-a10bd_en_firmware_20170119_v1-1-0-7-rar-release-2017-01-19-v1-1-0-7.436/
-Force install instructions: http://en.egreatworld.com/comunity/index.php?threads/egreat-a5-the-instruction-to-force-to-recovery-the-firmware.385/
* Enable full audio passthrough in Egreat media player? Settings should be (main system settings accessed from home screen): Settings - Sound - Output interface: HDMI, Settings - Sound - Passthrough: On
* Enable full audio passthrough in VidonXBMC? In Vidon: SYSTEM - Settings - System - Audio output device: VIDONME: vidon, hdmipcm.
* Enable LPCM passthrough in Egreat media player? From box home screen: Settings - General - More settings (bottom of right pane) - Sound - HDMI Output - LPCM.

Other

* Auto-framerate switching? In Egreat mediaplayer and VidonXBMC: 25/50fps  > 50Hz, 30/60fps > 60Hz, 23.976fps > 23.976Hz, 24fps > 24Hz, 29.970fps > 29.970Hz (only for 2160p),  29.970fps > 59.94Hz (resolutions not 2160p), 59.940fps > 59.94Hz (resolutions not 2160p)
* 3D-ISO? 23.976fps 3D-ISO is output at 24Hz. Flip eyes left/right is only supported in Egreat mediaplayer, not VidonXBMC.
* Drive mount location? All apps except the Egreat  player use Android file structure. All directories and locations are subdirectories of root, which is symbolised as /. External drives are located at /mnt/sda/sda1 (Q10 Pro internal HDD only) and  /mnt/sdb/sdb1 then /mnt/sdb/sdb2 etc (all USB drives).

GUI

* Software power menu?  Install this app and add to home screen (from MiniX via pcristi): http://www.mediafire.com/file/6tyvvqe43cil44i/PowerMenu-com.minix.power_selector-1.0-1%28themed%29.apk

MISC

* User guide / manual?  See here: http://en.egreatworld.com/egreat-user-guide.html
* Official forum?  As well as our forum, Egreat also maintain there own. A5 see here: http://en.egreatworld.com/comunity/index.php?forums/a5-professional-4k-hdr-blu-ray-hdd-media-player.16/ A10 see here: http://en.egreatworld.com/comunity/index.php?forums/a10-enthusiast-4k-hdr-blu-ray-hdd-media-player.15/

On the Futeko specs for A10 there is an SD-CARD mentioned of type SD which I don't think is actually there. It also says Fan NO which is obviously there (both regulated or manually controlled).

It is a pitty that it does not have one also seen the fact that it has only 2 USB ports. One will need a USB-hub with this one very quick, but OK that works too.

You are correct. I have updated the specs.

Moved over from Himedia Q10 Pro (even sold my unit) to a new Egreat A10. Reasons I like the build quality even more and the FW seems to be moving into the right direction a lot quicker.  My comments, findings etc will be all given on the mentioned dedicated Egreat Forum.
Occasionally will still have a peek here.

The A10 also has its flaws but overall does an impressive job for the person like me mainly using it to play BD and DVD content. This including menu's, a movie poster system and full HD audio passthrough. This with a very easy interface plus matching straight forward complete and backlit remote.

For KODI enthusiasts there are better and definitely a lot cheaper alternatives. Neither for customer who like many APP's and add-ons as none are provided.

Just got the A10. I'm having issues using it with my 4k HDMI Splitter. I need this because of my TV maybe 4K but my receiver is not. The Audio Passthrough will not work. Is there anyone out there who uses a splitter that can tell me what model works for them.

Even though I have to plug it into my receiver then the TV the Audio and picture quality, hand down so far is better that my Himedia Q10 Pro

Very soon the H10 HDMI splitter from Egreat themselves will be launched. As the same chip seems to be used for all new HW models it must do its job.
Posted the known details myself on the Egreat forum site.

Can someone confirm HD Netflix/Amazon Video playback?
If so, is 5.1 audio out supported?
Egreat installs the official apk's or modified ones?

Thanks in advance.

Offical APKs. Stereo audio only. SD only.

For those having both Zidoo and Egreat media players: Egreat BT remote AK86 works nicely with all models of both Zidoo and Egreat. I am using it with my Zidoo X9S and it works just fine via BT using any recent FW since the release of X20 (coming with a very similar BT remote).
