Different MiniX internals

I came across MiniX versions with different internals. Some have Allwinner A20 (dual-core) and some have A10S.
Interesting also is that some of the versions now seem to have mini HDMI instead of full and a headphone port added (because of the smaller HDMI plug).

There are some reports that these devices can be flashed with the 0202 firmware (1.6) I have put on the firmware page.

Please report any problems (as always on your own risk).

  1. So this site is still alive and well! Sorry not related to this subject, but I have a Mini Xplus… and the remote seems rather cheap. Just wondering if it is known what the IR codes are. Is it possible to use a universal remote in place of the one which came with the Mini Xplus? Of course, not all the buttons would map, but as a media center, the main buttons required would be navigation (up, down, left, right), select, and the media buttons (pause, play, stop, fast forward, and rewind). I know I saw reference to Google TV remote, but I don’t necessarily want to buy a new remote if somehow I can reuse an old remote.

      • Thanks much for the tip! I tried some codes for Pioneer on an old universal remote with no success. I then did a Google search on 6 and EFC 182 and found this link:


        where 6, 182 seems to be related to a “CD-R” (?) device. I tried a universal remote for a home theater system (also fairly old) where they had a code for a Pioneer CD player (but nothing separate for CD-R). No success. (I also tried for DVD/LD player with no success.) So possibly this is the right code to use, but I have no universal remote which can support such a code. For example, on the above link, they distinguish between a CD player EFC 180 and CD-R EFC 182. Thus, I assume that the universal remotes I have might be able to support a device with EFC 180 but not 182. While I would be tempted to get a Philips Pronto, I don’t think I can justify it just for use with this Mini Xplus. I noticed there are some used ones on Amazon and eBay for about $50.

        I thought I had a remote where I could teach IR codes by pointing the IR at the remote…

      • PS. It turns how I do have a remote which can learn IRs. It came with my Pioneer A/V receiver. However, it as well is a few years old. I found out that CD-R stands for CD Recorder. At any rate, I don’t know why, but even when trying the function on the remote which scans through all the codes for a given device, it couldn’t find one compatible with Mini Xplus. I had it scan CD-Rs, CD, and DVD players. It could be that the learning remote was prior to Pioneer CD-Rs. That is, it looked like it didn’t have any Pioneer CD-Rs, so perhaps Pioneer came out with a CD-R after this remote.
