K2 Mini DVB-T2 sound problem

Post by manios » Mon Sep 14, 2020 6:35 pm

Dear friends: I live in Spain, and I bought in Aliexpress the K2 MINI DVB-T2 terrestrial HD digital receiver (box photo attached) the system information is: Model: GHANA, SW Version: 7T00R386650, HW Version: 20190628V1.0 (I attach a photo).
All the Spanish channels in SD, work both in video and audio. But the HD channels, from TVE and ANTENA3, are seen but there is no sound.
Is there any solution (firm or other) to fix this problem?
Thanks for your attention.

most likely these channels have Dolby Digital (AC-3) sound:

If you press the AUDIO button - what do you see?

And this STB is not licensed by Dolby Digital (AC-3).


But if your TV has a Dolby Digital (AC-3) license, then you can try to connect through HDMI.

Dear friend, thank you for your interest. I have tried it with a TV that I have more modern for HDMI and, indeed, it was heard.
Now I have another small problem, and it is that when I connect it to the old TV via HDMI, the STB does not turn on. Do you know if there is a fuse inside, to be able to change it?
Thanks and regards.

Are any indicators off?

Attach more photos.
By the way, there is no photo in the first message:

(I attach a photo)

And if you reconnect to a modern TV?

For madev:
Thank you for your reply.
I have connected the STB to the modern TV again and it has started again! I do not understand it since I had tried it on several plugs and several power cables and it did not work. Thank you.

Then I tried the old TV (which has HDMI) and it can be seen but not heard.

Regarding the STB license, when I press "audio", an "audio language" screen appears with two possibilities:
DD Spanish .................................... Left Right [x]
DD Hebrew .................................... Left Right

However, in the technical specifications of the STB, which appear on the V-Made website, AC3 does appear:
Audio Decoder
MPEG-1, MPEG-2 (Layer I / II), MP3, AC-3 (Dolby Digital), AAC-LC, WMA
E-AC-3 (Dolby Digital Plus) decoding HE-AAC 5.1 multi-chhannel decoding.
https://v-made.com/dvb-t2-h264-receiver ... -p296.html
I do not know if it will have any solution, because I had bought this STB for the old TV, which does not tune in HD channels.
Anyway, thank you very much for your attention and advice.

and there it is written below:
License
Optional DTS, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, RM/RMVB, Divx License.
And no firmware can add a license.

If your old TV has a Dolby Digital license, then select in the K2 menu:
Digital Audio - HDMI RAW

For madev:
Thank you very much for your responses.
I have already understood that if my old TV does not have a DD license, the channels that broadcast in Spain with said sound system, I will never be able to listen to them.

One more question and I don't want to steal any more time from you:
When in the technical specifications of the STB it says "Lisense: Optional DTS, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, RM / RMVB, Divx License." Does it mean that there is a model of STB K2 that can reproduce this type of sound system?
Thanks and regards.

When buying cheap models of set-top boxes or cheap models of modern TVs, carefully look for a Dolby Digital (AC-3) license.

For example, K2 is a cheap model. And the new K2 MAX also has no license.
And, for example, the more expensive model K6 has a Dolby Digital license.

If the seller's description on AliExpress is incomprehensible, and you cannot understand,
then read the Customer Reviews, where it says something like yours:
"There is no sound on HD channels"
or
"There is no sound for many movies from a flash drive in the Media Player."
