Android or Android TV?

Thanks  Smile

No, I am not. I was just checking the forum and the git repo.

With a bit of luck I'll have a proof-of concept/testing Recalbox image tomorrow curtsy of mrfixit2001 and Substring from Recalbox.

Cool! Big Grin

Can't wait to get something easily installable on OMV armhf distribution.
Generally I'm in love with OMV distro in the matter of config. Only thin missing would be some addition like Emulation Station or any other suite.
...or the other way around so we could add OMV functionality.

Eventually I tried Retroarch on Android root and N64 and PSX emulation is almost perfect, no lag, no texture flickering, no crappy sound. Indisputably there is some driver issues with the lakka image.

You may wish to try out the Recalbox alpha image, it offers many different options for N64 emulation.

Luke, are you sure that PS1 games run at full speed? I have doubt when playing Tekken 3 on Rockbox, cause even the time counter goes slower than it should.

Yes, even upscaled PS1 games (enhanced resolution in ReArmed core) run full speed without exception on Recalbox. Try the Recalbox image for the Rockbox that mrfixit2001 has available.

I do not want to reflash my Rockbox cause I use it also as a media player. Maybe Android version has some different setting set up for PSX? Or can it be that you just think it runs at full speed, cause it looks smooth?

I've ran the image so many times, I know how it runs. Two things - 1) Recalbox has KODI built in and 2) you can boot from SD card.
