Mecool K7 turning off and sometimes the picture freezes. Bluetooth doesn’t work.

k7 user

Same here. It just crashes every few hours while watching youtube or DVB-S TV. Have to pull the power plug out to reset.
The whole box, while it is powerful, it’s also buggy, clunky and not polished well.

Kim

Check your thermals.
Contact with mecool and explain, maybe can release a decent firmware.

My Mecool k7 keeps reducing rendering to frame rate 1 when in DVB-T2 decoding. Applied the latest fw, did not help. Slowing is typical when scene changes. Do you have any idea?

Kim

I don’t understand what is framerate 1.
This box needs time to stabilyze the firmware, after that must works fine.
Do a factory reset, an keep the box on 30 min, reboot, check the bluetooth menu works.
If you have any issue please inform to you shop to make presion to Mecool to work in the firmware.
Have a nice day.

Hello. I ran the k7 update and still having trouble with dtv channels. Basically the channel speed slows down to almost slow motion. Is there anymore updates coming, or an alternative dtv app i can use.

Kim

Not normal, i don’t have any other reports about this.
Do a factory reset and wait 15 minutes, check if bluetooth menu works fine.
Comment this to your store to make mecool work in a new firmware.

Hello
You can use the USB tool to upgrade, but read very well how to do it. The reset button in inside the earphone plug
This is the K7 IMG file download link: https://mega.nz/folder/aAtVxJAK#bVEX4i2_prMQw78OYcNYag

Kim

First flash the IMG with a PC (method 1-A in the tutorial) and second use the ZIP with the update app (method 2-A) in the box
If don’t solve your problem open a dispute in your store and claim your money back, don’t send the device.
