Android TV


#1

Hello,

I’m planning to develop with my Dragonboard 410c, as a media center.
Do you know what are differences between the Android 5.1 version already installed, and Android TV ?
And what to do to bring Android TV interface to the dragonboard ?

Hi,

From Mark Gregotski, Director, Linaro Home Group:

Android 5.1 contains the TV Input Framework (http://source.android.com/devices/tv/index.html#tv_input_hal) and the Android TV Leanback support library (http://source.android.com/devices/tv/index.html#tv_input_hal and https://github.com/googlesamples/androidtv-Leanback). For information on building TV layouts see: http://developer.android.com/training/tv/start/layouts.html

An Android TV Launcher is available in Google Play Store or you may try using an open source version: https://github.com/sunglasscat/android-tv-launcher.

Hi adrien3d,
Could you successfully develop media centre on Dragon board 410C? I am trying to develop Android TV with Dragon board 410C. I installed the Live TV(Watch live- Mobi TV) from google play, but looks like it is not using the TIF. Please let me your suggestions/hints

Best Regards,
Sunitha

Hi Vinay,

Good timing :slight_smile: please have a look at the link below (for the HiKey board)

I am not aware of any development having been validated on the db410c yet but you could perhaps take the above as a reference.
