    Hi Gholfstok (you sound like you also from South Africa like me) Chances that the average sales guy would know that this device does not have adequate manufacturer support is rather slim. This is 100% a MyGica issue that they need to address or live with the "word of mouth" negative responses that we as the suckers that bought it has to say about it. So far ... I convinced 3 people to rather by Amazon Firesticks instead of this device. Purely due to the fact that I work in IT department in a pretty large company and most users think IT guys know stuff. I cannot promote something that I clearly feel has not got the support that a device of this price should have had.

    I had a thread earlier that got off topic about the 1800e stand by blank screen issue when waking the device. Today I was messing around and connected my box via Ethernet instead of wifi, After disabling the wifi and enabling the "Ethernet" I was SUCCESFULLY able to put the box in standby mode and WAKE IT!!!!! Needless to say I was excited because I thought I had solved my issue, HOWEVER, on occasion it would still give me the blank screen but only when Ethernet was disconnected and wifi was on. still working out kinks. so in the end having the Ethernet cable connected, on, active and wifi off, allows me to use the standby mode without having to reboot. Maybe your tech guys could use this info. its as if the Ethernet is what wakes the screen or unit... Brad

    You guys can try it if you like. We have tested it here and it works well. It will install as a separate APP from KODI 16.1 This will work on our ATV 1800/582/380/585/586 running Android 4.4 @TeamKodi - If you read this and see there is no source code available, I apologize for this. It will be available within 1-2 weeks, once we finish a newer version based on KODI 17.1 You can email me directly if you have any questions mygicaMediaCenter20170310.apk

    Hi Justin - I again tried to upgrade to Kodi 17.0 using Google Play (on a 1900AC) and still had occasional video choppiness and stutter. I then tried the latest nightly Kodi 17.1 APK build and had the same issue. It may be that the material I'm viewing is changing frame rates during playback (ie. ~30fps down to ~24fps and back for certain CGI'ed scenes, as it's older 4:3 tv shows) - might that be the cause? Kodi 16.1 plays everything I can throw at it without issue, and I did not need to change any playback settings within the software, just install and go.

    Hi I have a mygica 586 with 4.4 firmware. I am having problems with KODI Jarvis. I want to upgrade KODI to version 17 KRYPTON. there are various people with great ideas on youtube to do this. first install a few apps OK no problem Upgrade firmware to 5.0 this I am having problems with. KODI 17 will not be compatible unless 5.0 is installed. Also there is a parsing error I am stuck. have worked a few nights on this getting no where. any help would be appreciated. or should I get another box? and which one?

    I upgraded the box from 4.4 to Lollipop instead of the factory reset. I figured if I was going to go through the pain of a factory reinstall, might as well try and get the box more current. At first it appeared the upgrade was solid, but after a few hours of using the box I've discovered some flaws. The MAC address on the wired connection changes frequently for no apparent reason. That is extremely unusual. Others appear to have experienced this issue after upgrading to Lollipop. I've resorted to using wireless, which I am not fond of, but it appears to be working fine even with higher end video files with huge bitrates. At first I thought this was due to updating Kodi to Krypton via the Google Play store, but after a factory reset and back to Jarvis 16.1 the issue persists. That wired NIC interface/driver seems to be causing a lot of issues. I understand the upgrade process hangs if a cable is connected to the wired NIC. I can't confirm this as I read that from another user here so unplugged mine before attempting the upgrade. I have experienced other issues as well. For example, in Kodi (Jarvis 16.1 stock that came with the upgrade or Krypton), if I select anything other than 2 channel audio output in settings and then attempt to play any video containing more than 2 channels, Kodi hangs. Power cycle is the only fix for that, it locks up tight. So I have audio output set to 2 channels and the wired ethernet disconnected, using wireless. I understand these updates don't always go perfectly, but stable networking and multi-channel audio are core features. Without those, the value of this box is marginal. Knowing what I know now, I would not have done the upgrade. Hopefully there will be a fix for the NIC situation sooner rather than later. How it goes with the audio... we'll have to wait and see I suppose. I spent 6 hours struggling with all this stuff yesterday. That lost time cost me more than I paid for this box. Not. Happy.

    I am already experiencing problems with Kodi support. I have been told on Kodi forums when reporting bugs, that I must upgrade to 17. They are no longer supporting add-ons for Jarvis. Not to mention, several other apps are moving to 5.o+ versioning. Playstation Vue for example. My box isn't even a year old. One of the reasons why I decided to buy a $$$ box instead of a $ box is because it stated that it supports Andriod updates. Yet, you are stating this is not the case? This is a little ridiculous. There has got to be a way around it. You guys build out your own versions for all your other devices. Is there a reason you can't do that here?

    Petition to replace the 1900AC due to failure to provide addequate support. Product quits applications, fails to utilize cores, freezes, black screen I have read many discussions on the 1900AC and the many issues it has had through the few builds and lack of support. Because of several of the issues being so close to what I am experiencing I begrudgingly have descided to put my voice in the mix amoungst the many. I mistakenly purchased the 1900AC in aug 2016, had a lot of troubles with it integrating with my 4k vizio tv and pioneer 4k Atmos home theatre reciever and gave up on it. Bought a firetv 4k unit and its working far better for those devices. I have tried.... in frustration to wait. And wait... then updating to the Nov update. Only to be plagued with stuttering, rebooting, no passhrough, no netflix in HD, inabilitybto support 4k content properly, standby failing to work consecutively, kodi not using all cores etc... And most recently my streaming apps kick out when streaming. I am here to submit that the device is incapable of ever living up to the advertised abilities prescribed by Mygica. As the location that sold me the device will no longer refund me for the device because of the time that I have owned it I am petitioning to the manufacturer to replace the unit. please register and tag this post if you would agree that the support is subpar. I have seen mygica blame amlogic on failure to supply update code to the device. It is a poor carpenter that blames its tools. Maybe the specs in the device should have dialed back and such lavish claims should not have been placed upon a so poorly setup and supported device. If the next firmware, which again we have all been waiting on baited breath to see cannot fix the majority of the issues I would again suggest the manufacturer replace the units. I compare this expensive device to my inexpensive fire tv and mi-box and there is just no comparison. They are superior in every way. Sincerely, JBird

    Still trying to work on 5.1 for older devices. In the meantime, we have been able to create a fork of KODI 17 to work on Android 4.4, we will release it soon on the Playstore as MyGica Media Center. This is much easier to do then upgrading to Android 5.1 The source code will be released as well on Git Hub

This product is suppose to be 4 cores not 2 which are in use in Kodi. Why are the other 2 cores not used? Please don't tell me its to prevent overheating cause then don't advertise the product as 4 cores. I'm paying more for less?!

    I asked all of these questions to determine if the issue comes from USB remotes from us or any style USB remote It is because we had early versions of the 1800e that came with KR60 IR remote I am just trying to pin point the issue is all. If everyone is saying they are having the standby issue when using a USB style remote or keyboard, and do not have this issue when using just an IR remote, then I think we have found what is causing this problem then.

    Here is Beta Firmware to upgrade your ATV 1900AC/1800/582/380 to Android 5.1 You can install this normally using an SD Card or USB drive and the pre installed upgrade app. This does not require the reset button like before, however if you would like too you can load this through the Recovery Menu as well. Just extract the IMG file from the zip folder and move it onto a USB drive or SD Card that is formatted to FAT32. **PLEASE NOTE THIS WILL FACTORY RESET YOUR DEVICE** - This is our MyGica version of Android 5.1 and not Android Stock version like we offered before. This has been worked on for awhile now. - I have tested Wifi and Ethernet on all of the above models and it works without issues like before - This has been running well so far with very minimal issues - Volume issue has been fixed - Tried H,265 1080P Blu Ray files in KODI 16.1 and VLC without any issues - Tried 5.1 Audio within KODI without issues. Tried 5.1 Audio within VLC without issues, just had to switch the audio coded to OPEN-GL. - No Playstore issues - Tried Google Play movies and TV shows without any issues. They will show up within You Tube app as well, as long as your logged into the Play Store. HD Playback though I find is ON and OFF, I even have issues with HD Playback on a PC using Google Play Movies Chrome Extension. - Added full remote support - One thing that is missing but will be added later is the power/memory buttons at the bottom of the launcher, Power/Standby menu when holding down the power button on the remote.

    Got this box yesterday, turned on from new start, prompt for OTA update with regards to start from black screen. Took the OTA update no problem. Downloaded the new firmware, installed from a micro card as directions suggested. Installation went as suppose to and box is running fine. Blacklight is present and broom sweep is all seen as the firmware said it would be. All in all the updating of the box went as suggested. Updated Kodi to v17 and loaded appropriate addons. Box is working as advertised for my needs so it was a good process for information of other people needing to update firmware.

    So on Saturday Kodi 16.1 was up to its tricks and when I tried to switch it off it just hanged. Then it died. It would not want to restart. Then as you would do with any APP that gives weird issues I just uninstalled it and re-installed with Google Play store ... NOPE!! It does not work as the version on Play store is now Kodi 17. "This version is incompatible with your device" I am technical so I knew to go to the Kodi site ... search for Kodi 16.1 APK ... download it to the Mygica and install it like that. Most people would not be able to get past that. This is not only a nice to have ... I think it is imperative for you guys to get this resolved. Kodi 16.1 is known to have an issue when shutdown. It hangs every now and then. It also then sometimes gets corrupted. There is people out there that buys this player only for Kodi. A lot of those will never even come to this support page. They will just never buy the same device again. Or from the same brand.

    Once rooted I install NSTools its a free app that lets you change the CPU Scaling Governor. I set mine to interactive its like performance and keeps all cores active but allows the cores to idle lower when not active to reduce heat. When the CPU power is needed they all ramp up. Since i rooted and set to interactive with a min of 600 mhz on interactive the unit is WAY faster. Hot plug stops cores as much as possible to save power and idles them as low as possible this is not a good setting for a always plugged in and always on android box as the unit uses a power brick and will draw the same power if its on or off. here is the link for what i use. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mobi.cyann.nstools&hl=en here is the description of the governors I spoke of : (There are over 100 Governors ) 8: Interactive: Interactive scales the clockspeed over the course of a timer set by the kernel developer (or user). In other words, if an application demands a ramp to maximum clockspeed (by placing 100% load on the CPU), a user can execute another task before the governor starts reducing CPU frequency. Because of this timer, Interactive is also better prepared to utilize intermediate clockspeeds that fall between the minimum and maximum CPU frequencies. It is significantly more responsive than OnDemand, because it's faster at scaling to maximum frequency. Interactive also makes the assumption that a user turning the screen on will shortly be followed by the user interacting with some application on their device. Because of this, screen on triggers a ramp to maximum clockspeed, followed by the timer behavior described above. Interactive is the default governor of choice for today's smartphone and tablet manufacturers. 3: Performance: The performance governor locks the phone's CPU at maximum frequency. 21: Hotplug: The Hotplug governor performs very similarly to the OnDemand governor, with the added benefit of being more precise about how it steps down through the kernel's frequency table as the governor measures the user's CPU load. However, the Hotplug governor's defining feature is its ability to turn unused CPU cores off during periods of low CPU utilization. This is known as "hotplugging."

    Dead/red light box Basically it involves formatting an SD card to be bootable using the tools (and instructions) from the http://www.sendspace.com/file/kr3wta link and formatting the SD card with the uboot_MX.bin file on it. Then download & extract the MyGica file http://update.mygica.cn/MX_4.1/Mygic...s_20140512.zip, and put the following files on the SD card: (or maybe you could use a previous firmware version?) factory_update_param.aml factory_update_param.ubt how to update 4.2 on 4.1 platform.txt recovery.img spi_MX.bin update_MyGica_4.2_20140519_kr34.img Above works so prepare your sd card. This worked for me, but I had to do some extra things to make it boot from the SD card. You have to open the box, 2 little phillips on the bottom of the device and three on the back top edge. Then you short the middle 2 pins with a small pillips screw driver LATER, see image: http://i.imgur.com/3WEhxnZ.jpg?1 Ok. Insert the sd card, have only the HDMI cable connected to the box at this point. POWER OFF/OUT. Now short the 2 pins and hold it. Press the small reset button with a tooth pick or so and hold it too. now have someone plug the power in. Wait until the led's light up (3-8 seconds) and that they go from red to green, green to red blinking. Now let go of the screwdriver and tooth pick. Do not touch anything. There will be no picture on the screen at this moment After 2-5 minutes it will come to life and it will install itself. Just wait untill the thing is done. And.... voila a new box. 4.2.2 works way better. Hope this helps. Richard
