    We're testing something this week Sorry for the delay, we had other projects come up that delayed finishing this. I have given this out to anyone who PMs me though for it, so everyone is still welcome to do that.

    It's not fair, some of us bought this device just for the dstv now app and this is not supported anymore? It's bullshit. Mygica better bring out a software update or something that can certify the device! Or you would need to start swoppng old devices for the new certified devices or you will see people bringing the Mygica name down. You need to do something, can't just be like oh well! I promise if we need to buy new devices it will not be mygica at all. I await your response Mygica.

    The chipset company has assured us and our engineers that they are close to finishing a patch for this that we can apply to our models. I really wish I had a clearer answer as to when other than what I am told, which is "soon". I cannot stress enough that this is a subject that is not going away for us and the longer it takes us to fix, only hurts us more. We share your frustration and will always come to a solution that has our loyal customers well-being at heart.

    I had to install a file browser such as ES file explorer fro the play store to browse to the apk. Turn off verify apps and allow unknown sources in the security settings and the player will then allow you to install apks. If it doesn't show in the menu after installing, you need a sideapp loader app to be able to run the installed app.

    We will certainly address the current issues. The current beta is not the final version there will be. That being said, commenting on if it will be called a beta or not will depend on the outlook for if everything can be corrected without causing further issues. To explain a bit, we are creating this on our own without help from the typical route of assistance through the chip makers. This makes it more difficult, but necessary, since otherwise there wouldn’t be a newer OS of android on them. We always appreciate feedback, even when negative, from our forum contributors. Beta testers, commenters, complaints and suggestions help us make our boxes better each time we get to design something new. We are coming out with new ways of updating our systems to allow for easier and more frequent updates for a range of different purposes on any devices that we can do them to. We hate when we have to leave hardware behind on any new updates or operating systems, but as you can see with this beta, and other updates, that we try not to leave anything behind.

    Hello All My MYGICA ATV1900 AC USB port is not working, I read the articale before and I use bamboo toothpick and wood chopstick to clean the the glue beside USB ports and now all 4 USB ports start working now I do not know why they put the glue beside USB ports and maybe they want to fail after 2 years and people cannot use it and buy the new ond Solution: Clean up all the glue beside the USB ports abd around the chips and clean up with rubbing alcohol and dry before power up slam

    The HDMI issue is the only thing still happening on latest 7.1. Lollipop didn't have the issue do you think it might be an Android driver issue? Otherwise I certainly give it a big thumbs up! It's like my 1900Pro is a brand-new box . Runs better than ever, love it, great work to the Mygica team!

    I said that Google doesn't certify TV boxes that use the Mobile/Tablet version of Android They do however certify TV Boxes that are using the official Android TV OS https://www.android.com/tv/ Many Telcom companies are starting to get certified Android TV OS devices from Google We also have the ATV 495 MAX which is coming out soon, it is certified by Google using the Android TV OS

    We're currently testing Android 7.1 on the 1900P and 495P It should fix this audio Issue It runs well currently. We also plan to have it dual boot libreelec and android. We're just working out a few minor issues on it Once ready we will release it on here for everyone to enjoy. Please note the 495P and 1900P will each have it's own 7.1 Firmware.

    The issue is with Amlogic, and we're working with them to try and resolve it They sent us something, but it did not work I have been following this every week for awhile now, but no resolution yet. I will continue to push to try and get this resolved. Will continue to keep everyone updated We're now actually trying to port Android 7.1 onto the 1900 PRO/495 PRO As it is just taking too long to fix this issue on Android 5.1 Which should fix this audio issue I will keep everyone updated on this

    Hi Guys, The update that Justin mentioned earlier was something we hoped the engineers had sorted this issue on. The update obviously didnt have this. We have spent an incredible amount of time trying to solve this before realizing that this is an issue with the chipset. Once we finally figured out what was causing the problem (longer than we had hoped to take) we involved AM Logic to work on this. This is an apparent issue on this chipset line. I assure you we have not turned out backs on this issue. We know 100% that turning away in favor of new units will not give us any success. We aren't some huge company like Apple that can afford to just turn a bind eye to ongoing problems. These types of issues going unsolved do not disappear for us. There's not one single person in this company who feels differently than what I am saying. This is important! While Justin has been taking on more roles here, others have stepped in to assist him on the development of our current AOSP lineup of boxes. I just want to mention some ways that we have supported our loyal customers in hopes that it means something and shows we are not trying to do a money grab from the people who have helped us grow. ATV1200- This box was discontinued in 2013. We were addressing and releasing updates for software limitations of current firmware until Feb-2015 Android 4.4 - Within only several months after we discontinued our 1800e Model, KODI made their newest software reliant on having android 5 or higher. The chipset manufacturer did not provide the tools or the SDK to companies to create a higher android on those versions of chips. We set out and developed our own 5.1 for the 1800e, 1900ac, 380, 582 and a couple others. While it wasn't our fault and we had no way of anticipating this happening, we knew we could not go back and suggest to people who bought one of those products, that they must buy another. MMC- For the massive number of people who either didn't have the know-how to upgrade to this 5.1, and for the much larger crowd of people running android 4.4 on other brand boxes, we created a fork of KODI 17 called MyGica Media Center. This was a fairly large expense to us knowing that the majority of people using it would not be customers of ours. MMC works on android 4.4. While we ask every day from the engineers about an update on this, it is unfortunately up to the collaboration of our engineers, developers and AM Logic's engineers. We are waiting with baited breath just like everyone else. I can personally say that I am probably anticipating this update more than anyone else.

    Take a read of this article: http://androidpcreview.com/netflix-hd-android-tv-box/3784/ It gives some background on why you don't get Netflix HD, nor 4K on your MyGica box, but do get it on your Amazon Fire stick (and specific other devices). The same applies to most Android TV boxes, not just MyGica (and manufacturers that are bigger).

    I agree with what you're saying for the most part except the last sentence. The two 1800e boxes I bought over the past couple months had 5.1 already installed on them. And I think the older models deserve the full right to completely function on 5.1. I personally prefer 1800e over 1900ac because it has the full size sd card slot, specs are minimally different, and it's cheaper. The biggest thing I can't get is how long these things take to fix. And whenever there's a new firmware release that's better than the last it's like a huge breakthrough for mygica. Maybe I don't know enough about the technology, but I think it should really just take weeks to correct issues like this at the most, not months and months. But I agree these boxes should be fully functional to standard upon their purchase. I don't mean to be overly negative about mygica, but I do feel you guys can do things a lot better. Lots of room for improvement. Constructive criticism.

    Team MyGica has done a terrific job on this fork. I would like to think of this as a break through for the MyGica brand name similar in scope to a cure for polio, keep up the good work !

    The update is as follows. At first we thought it was wide spread on 1900AC and 1800E, but now after spending a lot of time on this, it is mainly only the 1800E. The issue we are having is the 1800E uses a different chipset then the 1900AC and also a different PCBA Layout, including the power layout. This is basically what is causing the issue, we had something similar on the 1900 PRO and 495 PRO, but were able to fix it. However, the 1800E chipset is very similar to the one in the 1900AC that is why 5.1 works, but just has a standby issue. We are trying to figure out how to fix the power issue without affecting the 1900AC at the same time. I realize this is obviously a problem, as electronics should turn on/off without issue, and I am not ignoring it at all and I have never been silent on the issue either. So that is the current update for now. P.S. - I know this is not normally what people do with electronics, but you can just leave the box on 24/7, and do the occasional reboot. Personally I haven't turned off my box in about 6 months, I just do reboots from time to time. This will temporarily solve the standby issue for now.

    Justin, Please read carefully and provide us with a thorough answer. Not just a one sentence to evade our questions. I'm sure it is not intentional, however we need answers. What we are are ALL trying to tell you is that we are very concerned with the MyGica ATV586 and its restrictions pertaining to the latest Kodi updates. You indicated in previous post from spkenny2 that "That is a message from a Third Party website, not Kodi themselves". HOWEVER, we all believe this is the case regardless if the message was sent third party. Justin, Please provide us with documentation supporting your claims. We are all very concerned with the workaround allowing Kodi 17 + working on kitkat. Justin, you also previously mentioned " "1 is a very big resource hog. And we are finding that 1GB of Ram is only leaving about 100mb of ram available even with Zero apps running. So this makes the box very slow to use. 2. It takes about 3-5 months to make the ATSC Tuner work on a newer version of Android. We will have a solution though to use KODI 17 on Android 4.4 instead, this is much easier to do." This may be easier to do, however, I just purchased the unit in December and we are not able to update the Android OS already. This is going to cause serious issues in the near future. I strongly suggest you take a ATV586 box home with you, try it and see the issues we are all having. The thing locks up on us due to resources maxed out already, At times, running KODI, the movie sound will play, however no video and the only way to get it working again is a reboot. The ability to to continually upgrade Kodi & the OS is critical for the new HTTPS protocol used for the now majority of streaming. What good is an update workaround when we can't utilize the latest HTTPS Protocol for Streaming. Several points on your website are indicated to your clients that don't seem to be as promised and FALSE. This can all be seen on your website and packaging http://mygica.com/Enjoy-TV/ATV586.html 1. OTA UPDATES states: MyGica Andoid TV Platforms / Solution benefit from MyGica’s worldwide secure online update service, to always provide the latest, safest and greatest Firmware and Application that are available. 2. Kodi, formally known as XMBC, is a media player platform that allows users to play and view most videos, music, such as podcasts from the Internet, home network and all common digital media files from local and network storage media. The ATV586 comes pre-installed customized and optimized Kodi, with hardware decoding up to 4K2K Ultra HD support. 3. MY SMART CHOICE? I don't think it is at all! I have had nothing except problems and I believe it is up to your company to 1. truly give us what we purchased, not work around with on-going glitchy problems, 2. provide us with a MyGica that provides what was promised or 3. our money back hassle free.

    Considering that upgrading to Kodi Krypton 17.1 is soon to be a necessity (1), I'd say the Mygica team (AMLogic at large) has a responsibility to its customers to produce a stable 5.0 (or higher) image for it's products. 1) https://www.tvaddons.ag/upgrade-kodi-krypton/

    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?

    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.

    We fixed this issue on 1900 PRO and 495 PRO After speaking to my team over the weekend, we cannot fix it on the 1800E/1900AC till after Chinese New Years, since their office closes after tomorrow for 2 weeks. I think once the fix is ready, we will send it OTA. If not, then I will get a how to video explaining how to do it.

    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."

    UPDATE: With the release of KODI Krypton on February 5, 2017 which required that the Android OS 5.0 be used to continue with its use, a lot of Android KODI users had been using 4.4.2 Kit Kat with Jarvis or Isengard and both produced flawless audio and video playback but from that moment on until the Kodi group updated the video playback portion of Leia (KODI 18) many users suffered with video chatter/ stutter that mimicked a child’s flip card display or game (thank you). I have spent countless months experimenting with each adjustable section of KODI to correct this video issue with the understanding that it was a hardware related issue but to my surprise, the introduction of Leia (Beta and RC1) has solved it. I even went as far as purchasing new devices with updated operating systems, clean installs and still without luck. I am not saying that this is or was the only issue but with the release of Kodi v18 “Leia” RC1 my issues have disappeared and are apparently corrected with quality non jittery video again! I highly recommend that if you are experiencing any video issue that you at least attempt this as it is free and apparently works and fixes this problem.

    Just install kodi 16.1 and it will work fine. It's not the boxes fault that kodi changed the way it works with android in version 17 after the box was already released. I don't know what the problem is with netflix but I know there is a bunch of threads on here about it that might help. Maybe uninstall the default netflix and install the google play version or the aptoid version.

    As a South African living in SA I fail to understand why anybody would want to install the Dstv Now App on a streaming device. In order to use it one has to be a Dstv subscriber that by default implies one must have a Dstv decoder and account therefore there is or should be no need to stream to anything else than a tablet or phone that it was intended for .... unless one is using another subscribers account details to stream...... One can only stream in areas where there is internet available whilst one can view Dstv anywhere in Africa as it is satellite based. In my humble opinion Justin and co should not even worry about the Dstv Now App, resolve it with the shop/outlet where the device was bought if they lead you to believe that the app will work on any device.

    I installed this firmware yesterday and everything looks the same. Confirmed it installed properly in settings, showing newest version. Ether net works fine here. Only issue I have is when I take unit out of standby it won't reconnect to network. Have to either reboot device or manually disconnect and reconnect ethernet. Once connected it will work fine.
