  • WeTek Unveils Hyperion 4G LTE Set-Top Box & Nix OTT TV Box Running Android TV OS

    When Geniatech announced Android TV certification for their ATV598Max set-top box with digital TV tuners compliant with DVB-T2, DVB-C, ATSC, or ISDB standards earlier this week, we noticed how few official Android TV STB there was on the market.

    But more may be coming, as Wetek will showcase two Android TV products at CABSAT in Dubai on January 14-16 with Wetek Hyperion Amlogic S905D 4G LTE set-top box, as well as WeTek Nix OTT box powered by Amlogic S905X processor.
    WeTek Hyperion

    Specifications:
    • SoC – Amlogic S905D quad core ARM Cortex-A53 SoC up to 1.5 GHz, with penta-core ARM Mali-450 GPU
    • System Memory – 2GB DDR3 RAM
    • Storage – 16GB eMMC 5.0 flash
    • Video & Audio Output – HDMI 2.0a (CEC, HDR, HDCP 1.4/2.2), mini jack analog AV output
    • Connectivity
      • Gigabit Ethernet
      • Dual band 802.11 ac/b/g/n WiFi (optional 802.11ac MiMo)
      • Bluetooth 4.0
      • 4G LTE modem – LTE-FDD: B2/B4/B5/B12/B13/B17/B25/B26; LTE-TDD: B41; Download up to 150 (Mbps). Upload up to 50 (Mbps)
    • Power Supply – 5V/2A

    Hyperion does not appear to come with tuner, so we’ll have to see since S905D processor is well-suited for tuners. I think 4G LTE is popular in the Middle East since that’s how many people get their broadband Internet, so it’s possible this model mostly targets the MENA market. The device is promoted as a “complete home hub capable of providing the best video quality, user’s favorite Android applications and routing all Internet traffic at home”.

    The set-top box currently runs Android TV 7.1.2, but Oreo 8.0 will also be supported, and DRM is enabled using ARM TrustZone SecureOS with Google Widevine Level 1 and Microsoft PlayReady 2.5 & 3.0 for secured, premium content playback. It will ship with a power supply, a 1.2m HDMI cable, and an optional one meter IR extender cable.
    WeTek Nix


    The second device includes lots of ventilation holes, and is a more traditional OTT TV box with the following specifications:
    • SoC – Amlogic S905X quad core ARM Cortex-A53 SoC up to 1.5 GHz, with penta-core ARM Mali-450 GPU
    • System Memory – 2GB DDR3 RAM
    • Storage – 16 GB eMMC 5.0 flash
    • Video & Audio Output – HDMI 2.0a (CEC, HDR, HDCP 1.4/2.2) up to 4K @ 60 Hz, mini jack analog AV output
    • Connectivity – 100 Mbit Ethernet, dual band 802.11 ac/b/g/n WiFi (optional 8902.11ac MiMo), Bluetooth 4.0
    • Power Supply – 5V/2A

    Like Hyperion, Nix support Android TV 7.1.2 / 8.0, as well as Widewine L1 and PlayReady 2.5/3.0, but also adds Verimatrix VCAS for IPTV. The TV box with also ship with a power adapter, HDMI cable, and optional IR extender cable.

    Both device seem to be targeted to OEM partners, and it’s unclear whether those models will be sold direct to end users like previous models such as Wetek Hub or WeTek Play 2. We’ll probably find out more in a few days.

      If you’re a keen watcher of the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), then a new device from Shenzhen SEI Robotics Co., Ltd. labelled a ‘4K ATV Stick’ will probably have piqued your interest, with the external photos showing off a HDMI dongle, with Google Logo running the latest version of Android TV and with a Google Assistant enabled voice remote.

    • Google removes ‘Kodi’ from search autocomplete in anti-piracy effort
      trebor
      Google has banned the term “Kodi” from its autocomplete feature, meaning those who look for information on the set-top box will have to type out the full term in order to search, as reported by TorrentFreak. Google has been increasing its anti-piracy efforts in recent years, banning terms from autocomplete and making changes to its search algorithms in order to demote copyright-infringing material.

      While Kodi is legal software in a set-top box for streaming, it supports a myriad of

    • Google starts blocking its apps on uncertified Android devices
      trebor
      If you're fond of loading custom ROMs on your Android phone, life just became complicated. Google has quietly started blocking access to its apps on uncertified devices whose firmware was built after March 16th. If you're affected, you'll get a warning that a device is "not certified" and can't sign into a Google account. This won't prevent you from loading ROMs, but you'll have to register your device IDs on a white list every time you undergo a factory reset -- when there's a 100-ID...

      AMD has finally issued a full response to CTS Labs’ report that Ryzen and EPYC processors contain a total of 13 security flaws. Here’s the short version of the chipmakers’ response:
      • Exploitation of the vulnerabilities requires admin access
      • The vulnerabilities have to do with firmware and chipsets, not the x86 architecture
