WeTek Play2 - 4K PVR - HD Audio - Dual Boot - Specs & Reviews

@Ricardo has put out another outstanding ATV ROM release, our bug busting has really paid off.

Click - [ROM] [Marshmallow] Android TV v2.2 for WeTek Play2

  • (4K) Netflix installable direct from ATV Play Store, as are all other ATV Apps.
  • All included Widewine DRM and HDCP 2.2 still works.
  • Includes TvHeadend server, that uses the inbuilt ATSC / DVB - TV Tuners (WeTV is not supported)
  • High quality, Advanced Motion Adaptive - Hardware deinterlacing for TV use, in both SPMC and Android TV Live Channels.
  • Inbuilt Telnet server (root access)
  • Inbuilt FTP server, drag and drop files easily to external USB storage.
  • HD audio passthrough works correctly in apps like Kodi, SPMC, Plex etc
  • DTS-HD is automatically downgraded to DTS if your AVR doesn't support it (except in Kodi)
  • Dolby Digital Plus is automatically downgraded to Dolby Digital if your AVR doesn't support it (except in Kodi)
  • This way, people can still enjoy DD 5.1 Netflix audio without a DD+ supported AVR / TV / Soundbar.
  • 5.1 Netflix audio works through S/PDIF
  • Flawless Kodi dynamic refresh rate switching in Krypton and SPMC.
  • Beautifully smooth Kodi Krypton / SPMC video playback for all video fps combos.
  • Supports USB microphones
  • Voice search works with usb Mic's and the Android TV remote app (Android, iOS)
  • WeTek Core Remote works out of the box, including the Mic.
  • Xiaomi Mi Box BT remote works out of the box, including the power button - Sleep / Wake (Mic. doesn't work yet).
  • Sideload Apps Launcher included
  • Power button at the bottom of the launcher
  • Can start apps on boot.
  • Easy Reboot to TWRP / Android recovery.
  • Firmware can be rooted with SuperSU.
  • X-plore replaces the default file manager of WeOS
  • Remove AMLogic Movie Player app
  • Aptoide alternative Apps store included.
  • Dual Boot to LibreELEC Kodi still available.

Because this is an unofficial ATV release there are no Chromecasting certificates installed, so not very many Chromecasting features will work. However even on officially licensed Android TV platforms Chrome/Google casting can be unreliable

2GB RAM on the Play2 vs 1GB on the WeTek Hub results in a more fluid, slightly faster ATV in day to day operation.
The Marshmallow Play2 is not a slow device, especially when combined with a Wireless remote.

What is really pleasing is WeTek's Marshmallow Firmware with Kodi dynamic refresh rate switching works superbly now that its been bug busted, plus this ROM still retains Amcodec Hardware acceleration for high quality, reliable TV deinterlacing when using Kodi/SPMC (Jarvis) and the TvH PVR client.

Its really nice having a pre-packaged TvHeadend server to be able to use the inbuilt TV tuners. You can use the TvH App to watch TV with Android TV's - Live Channels as well.

This is the best Android Marshmallow Firmware I've used across a number of devices because all the Kodi features work properly, on Netflix approved Hardware that includes the correct supporting DRM and HDCP certificates.
ATV Netflix and 5.1 Audio works well, even with only basic DD/AC3 only capable TV / Soundbar / AVR's.

Three thumbs up !
