    What I've done is to install X-plore on my TV. I am using a Google Drive (Now called "Backup and Sync from Google") on my laptop. I can download any apk that I want to try on the TV to a folder in my G-Drive. Now, If I want to install anything, watch a movie, play MP3s or whatever, I just copy them to a folder on my shared g-drive folder on my laptop, wait for the files to sync to the cloud and then I open the folder on my TV with X-plore and click the file. Easy as that. Many apps are not compatible with Android TV and they will usually start rotated (although I have previously used an app to rotate my phone screen after I dropped it in the pool and the autorotate stopped working, so I guess that might be one solution), some will only work with a mouse and some won't start at all, like Netflix, which tells me that it is not compatible. If I want to watch anything on Netflix, I just view it on my phone and cast to the TV. The quality is pretty good.

    You can sideload it as well as the chrome browser. It does work but you need an air mouse or a regular wireless usb mouse to use it. to sideload you need to switch on allow unknown sources and turn off verify apps in the security settings. what I did is I used an app called send files to tv on both my box and cellphone. Install the app total commander on your phone. It has an installed apps tab. you can copy the apk from your phone using that.

    Thanks @delacosta78 It's much appreciated. I've installed the Beta version workarounda few months ago. It looks like the version needs an update as it's losing connection to the Netflix 2 server. Will try a reinstall. The Beta version I have appears to be using a 2015 version of Netflix. Netflix says there's missing data points that's causing the problem. I'll try the Kodi add-on as well. If I come across anything of use I'll post it here. Thanks again for the assist.

    I've updated my MyGica ATV495Max yesterday. Booted fine, but got stuck when Preparing the remote. The instructions on the screen says: "Press Left and Home buttons and wait for beep" The beep never came! So I was staring at the screen for a few minutes. On the original setup for MyGica, the key combination to detect the remote is OK and Back. That worked and the system started. What I've found: I used to have ES File Explorer on the device before - It is now no longer found in the Play Store. So far, I couldn't get Netflix to work. The latest apk works, but it's not optimised for the TV, so it just sucks. Showmax shows an error that I'm not connected to the internet, so I can't watch anything there. The interface is cool though.

    The only thing that seems to work is if I power the unit down to standby mode after use. When we want to watch anything, I have to switch on my tv first, then my Denon amp, switch the amp's input to media player and then power on the 1960. If I forget to power off to standby or full power off after use, it's lost signal when i switch the tv on. If i switch the components on in any other order than described here then the 1960 does not get signal and I have to reboot by unplugging the unit's power cable.
