Have you tried playing with the HDR settings in CoreELEC to see if it makes a difference?

Before loading Corelec its best to shut down Android with all its fancy DV/HDR display settings disabled.
I had this issue 1st time with Coreelec as well.
Once you do this you will find the colours are fine and will only switch to HDR when HDR content is played.

So is there an easy "How to" instal Coreelec internally on the Forum? I have it on a thumbdrive, but you lose a USB

no, in corelec shutdown option you can just choose reboot to android
Perhaps I should have put "boot straight to Android".

What I am getting at is when you power down your device, perhaps at the end of the day, and restart it you'll go back into CoreELEC unless you remove the Micro SD. Personally as I don't use CoreELEC all the time I find it less fiddly to use a USB stick over a Micro SD which is a lot easier to mislay or, has has happened to me, gone pinging across the room.

Anyway, if Minix can sort out the multichannel AAC audio issue with the U22 I won't need to bother with CoreELEC and I'll get a USB stick back.

I knew there was something I was supposed to look into for you :unsure:

Read the last part of this post, I think this is what you were after:
https://theminixforum.com/index.php...2-and-logitech-harmony-remote.3385/post-27925
haha...yes i remember but i found that info back then from somewhere ( Corelec forum probably ) and tried it but it didnt work for me :(



Update : just revisted this on my system and discovered that in my custom menu item I had spelt the action as ReebootToAndroid

now ive spotted the deliberate mistake it all works fine...what a knobhead !!

Sorry if it is not well understood. But that is precisely what I mean to say that I do not quite understand.
If you are using a custom skin in CoreElec then it may not have the option to reboot to Android in the power option menu, the code I linked adds this option. If you are using the default skin then just ignore the post.

Thank you very much Marty now it is clear to me. Honestly, I was getting my hopes up that it was something similar to a dualboot but thanks to you I know that this is not possible for now.
Thank you very much once again Marty.
