Invalid Format

Post by Gazman » Fri May 05, 2017 7:12 am

Hello, first time post here..
I have just unpacked my new arrival a Wintel W8 box from Droidworld and plugged in power, Ethernet and HDMI, all good so far. When I power on it comes up with a screen for me to choose Android or Windows, I choose Andriod and after about 5 seconds the screen goes blank and I get the message "Invalid Format". I've rebooted twice but get same problem.
It does however let me log into the the windows startup and that appears all ok, from which I can swap to Andriod, and I'm back to square one "invalid format" comes up.
I would rather use Andriod instead of Windows, any ideas??

HDMI cable is ok, was used before, also swapped for new cable with no difference.
TV is a teac, again been used with HDMI plenty of times before with no issues.

I would guess this is a compatibility issue with the TV (maybe the default android resolution is not compatible with your TV). Try the box on another TV or computer monitor with HDMI - if it works, change the resolution in android settings to something else, and test again on your TV
