A hidden feature of NEO X6...

    The headphone jack of NEO X6 is in fact also a CVBS-out port.

    We don't want to advertise this feature because we think the quality of CVBS output is not good.

    A standard 3.5mm (4-pole) to 3-RCA cable will make the analog video output (576i/480i) possible.


    For those who need this feature, you may try.

    P.S. XBMC doesn't support this CVBS output mode.

    It's the only MINIX hub that has CVBS-out.

    Team MINIX.
  2. That is good to know but I can't understand why this should effect XBMC, meaning that if CVBS-out gives a signal on TVs without HDMI support(yes some people are poor and cannot afford a new TV with HDMI) why XBMC should not work? I will give this a try and revert! Thank you.

    It uses 1080p frame buffer?
    We don't understand either, we don't create the app...

    I have just purchased the X6 because of this feature. I have a HDMI TV in my living room and an analog RCA jacks TV in my bed room. I plan to make the X6 provide service on both these television sets.

    Please someone could provide the 4 pole pinout for Minix Neo X6?
    I have a 3.5mm 4 pole cable which does NOT work properly. Incorrect pinout for the device. Different companies use different pinouts.
