On the top cover has a Tanix logo and info about Alice UX User Interface. Tanix TX6 TV Box is equipped in new Allwinner H6 (CortectA53 architecture and up to 1.8GHz, as in ZIDOO H6 Pro, Eachlink H6 Mini) which supports 4K@60fps-10bit ultra-HD video decoding and low-latency H.264 4K encoding and supports 6K video. There is also supports for HDR10 and HLG HDR, integrated Smartcolor 3.0 display system, more in H6 brief here. On the front panel is IR receiver and LED digital display (only time). On one side there is USB 3.0 port, on the other side, there is a micro SD card slot. On the sides of the housing are also visible holes. On the rear panel are external WiFi antenna, 2x USB 2.0, DC jack, reset hole, RJ45 Ethernet port, HDMI 2.0a, and a composite S \/ PDIF port. At the bottom of the device, there are also four rubber pads to prevent shifting. Below also typical Remote Control.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAs we mentioned at the beginning, also Tanix TX6 has ALICE UX - User Interface. As you can see, UI looks good and access to the app and features is easy and fast. We like it, but it's our opinion. We can choose typical the resolution of FHD 1920\u00d71080 (1080p 60Hz) but you can also adjust the preferred resolution or set the auto switch. Everything worked stable and very quickly without delays. We had no problem with Ethernet and WiFi connection to the router and to the Internet, Wifi connection works faster than ethernet (see a screenshot from Ookla tests). Ethernet: Download \u2013 95.4Mbps Upload \u2013 37.8Mbps, WiFi: Download \u2013 148Mbps Upload \u2013 34.3Mbps). In addition to the remote control, we used a standard keyboard, mouse and a gamepad from iPega called iPega PG-9076. Although the device in its specification has 32GB eMMC, storage has 25.77GB of data. TV Box supports also Miracast, DLNA. If you need to control the TV Box through a smartphone, you can use the Android TV Remote Control app or our favorite CetusPlay (Install CetusPlay On TV\/Box app on TV box and open, Install CetusPlay on a smartphone). Tanix TX6 supports Netflix up to 480p and 1080p Youtube (only full HD). TV Box has pre-installed also FilmOn application with access to many live channels. We also installed the latest Kodi 17.6. On TX6 TV Box you can play in games from the Google Play store, as on other Android TV Box. Games run smoothly with maximum settings, it is a big advantage of TV Boxes with H6 SoC. Just connect gamepad or keyboard. We used iPega PG-9076 and played Beach Buggy Racing, and other famous games Asphalt 8, Real Racing 3. Below the screenshots.\n\n\n\nOperating system and components\nThe Tanix TX6 TV Box runs on the Android 7.0 Nougat and the Linux Kernel version 3.10.65. TV Box comes with firmware petrel_fvd_p1-eng 7.0 NRD91N 20181122 test-keys (new firmware for TX6 TV Box 20181219 here). H6 Mini TV Box is equipped with a popular SoC AllWinner H6 quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor up to 1.8GHz and GPU Mali-T720MP2, CPU speed between 480MHz and 1.8GHz. On the following screens, you can see exactly the components used and their specification (Information taken from the CPU-Z app). After using the DRM info (app) we know that H6 Mini TV Box supports Google Widevine and ClearKey CDM. The device also has root access. Below screenshots.\n\n\n\nPerformance tests and benchmarks\nFor testing, we use the AnTuTu Video Tester 3.0 app and AnTuTu Benchmark 7. 1.0. The result 859. The test showed problems with 2 video samples. Video playback by Kodi 17.6 Krypton runs almost smoothly and stable. The Tanix TX6 TV Box without problem seems plays movies with the resolution of 480p,720p, and 1080p (24fps, 30fps, 60fps) and also 4K (60fps) with various codecs videos such as H.264, H.265, MPEG2, MPEG4, RMVB, and audio \u2013 DTS and AC3. Dolby Digital 5.1 passthrough worked fine via HDMI. Also, we tested several video formats \u2013 AVI, MKV, MP4 (typical formats in which it holds the majority of movies), ISO and also videos was played fine. The tested TV Box plays video files in 4K (also 60fps) almost without any major problems. The following table of video samples tested for Kodi 17.6. TV Box also copes well with playing the video on YouTube, videos play only in 1080p. We tried to play VP9 4K video and also runs smoothly.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nTypical 1080p\nKodi 17.6\n\n\nMPEG2 \/ MP2 2.0 \u2013 6.6Mbps\nOK\n\n\nMPEG4 \/ MP3 2.0 \u2013 7.6Mbps\nOK\n\n\nH264 \/ AAC 2.0 \u2013 7.2Mbps\nOK\n\n\nVC1 \/ WMA3 2.0 \u2013 25Mbps\nOK\n\n\nVP8 \/ VORBIS 2.0 \u2013 7.8Mbs\nOK\n\n\nJellyfish 1080p HEVC 10bit \u2013 90Mbps\nOK\n\n\n4K Video\n \n\n\nSintel \u2013 H264 \/ AAC 2.0 \u2013 24fps\nOK\n\n\nBBB Sunflower -H264 \u2013 30fps\nOK\n\n\nBBB Sunflower -H264 \u2013 60fps\nSound delays\n\n\nHoney Bees \u2013 96fps\nOK\n\n\nSkyfall \u2013 H264 \/ AAC 2.0 \u2013 10Mbps\nOK\n\n\nPuppies Bath \u2013 h264\/AAC 2.0\nOK\n\n\nCinemartin H265\/HEVC\nOK\n\n\nTears of steel \u2013 60fps\nOK\n\n\nHD Club Chimei \u2013 H264 \/ AAC 2.0 \u2013 60Mbps\nOK\n\n\nJellyfish 4k uhd HEVC 10bit \u2013 140Mbps\nOK\n\n\nJellyfish 4k uhd HEVC 10bit \u2013 200\/250\/300\/400Mbps\nNot smooth\n\n\nLG Demo \u2013 Istanbul 3840\u00d72160 MP4\/H264 8bit \u2013 116Mbps\nOK\n\n\nSony 4K \u2013 Camp HDR MP4\/HEVC 10bit \u2013 75.8Mbps\nOK\n\n\nDemo Samsung 2014 \u2013 USA Road Trip TS\/HEVC 10bit \u2013 51.4Mbps\nOK\n\n\nSamsung UHD DUBAI TS\/HEVC 10bit \u2013 51Mbps\nOK\n\n\nH.265\/VP9 Video\n \n\n\nTears of steel \u2013 H265-HVEC \/ AAC 2.0 \u2013 15Mbps\nOK\n\n\nYoutube \u2013 VP9 \/ 1080p\nOK\n\n\nVP9 \/ 4k \u2013 Eye of the Storm 4K Ultra HD.webmv\nOK\n\n\nVP9 \/ 4k \u2013 10 Incredible 4K (Ultra HD) Videos.webmv\nOK\n\n\nVP9 \/ 4k \u2013 Australia \u2013 Land Down Under in 4K.webmv\nOK\n\n\n\nTanix TX6 TV Box Benchmarks\nBelow Benchmark screenshots we were able to do: AnTuTu Benchmark, GeekBench 4, 3D Mark: Ice Storm Extreme, Ice Storm Unlimited, Sling Shot, GPUBench, GFXBench Benchmark, Vellamo. TX6 TV Box has the internal memory benchmarks: Read 67.39MB\/s \u2013 Write 51.40MB\/s. RAM copy speed was 2628.81MB\/s.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nConclusions\n\n\n\n\n\nTanix TX6 is a good and properly working TV Box. It works stably and quickly, has fast WiFi. TV Box copes well with 4K video playback. Unfortunately, it does not offer the features that most users expect, namely Youtube 4K and Netflix HD. It's sad because the specifications have great potential. A big advantage worth emphasizing is the access to the firmware updates prepared by the Tanix team. If you choose TV Box powered by Allwinner H6 SoC (or other), take into account the availability of updates. If you do not count on the missing features that we mentioned, then you should consider buying a Tanix TX6 (the more so because it is now available for $44.99, it's good value for money), if you care about Netflix HD and Youtube 4K you should look for an alternative, for example, MECOOL M8S PRO L or Xiaomi Mi Box.
