Hmm, do not upgrade to the latest 20190508 version. Now I got no sound problem. One user in Facebook reported the same problem.

Now need to troubleshoot the sound problem and may need to flash the firmware again...

All in all, this Tanix TX6 is really problematic.

Opened the box and I feel the thermal design is not correctly done which causes the overheating problem. They have a small heat sink on top of the CPU and then connect to a bigger heat sink on the bottom through a small piece of thermal grease cube.
Okay the sound issue goes away after reboot. I can get Audio from HDMI again.

But others are having problems with SPDIF output.

Using a USB fan to blow wind through the side brings down the temperature to about 55 - 65 degree C which is reasonable. So it is recommended to use TX6 with a fan.
