    Hi. Is there any plan to make firmware available for MyGica 585 to support higher OS than Kitkat? For Kodi 17 and higher there is a requirement for Lolipop or higher. This will then not work on Kitkat that is installed on my MyGica that I bought new in December 2016?

    585 kodi 17 fork downloaded the kodi17 fork onto my 585 box, but glad i left 16.1 there. live video on this fork, such as that on prosport addon is flawless on 16.1, but lags badly on the new fork of 17! the video is flawless on 16.1. tried many things to remedy this with no success. notice that under video settings, the video setting for the fork are mediacodec (surface) and mediacodec as opposed to DXVA2 for the authentic kodi 17.1. all this leads me to believe that the problem of the stuttering when accessing live video on prosport and others is because of an issue associated with the fork. does anyone have any insight into this or how to rectify the problem. is there a good method of actually changing the firmware on this (585) box? it's been less than a year since i purchased this box, and it already seems obsolete in that i can't upgrade to the newest version on kodi 17.1! also, i'm at a loss as to why mygica or any other retailer of android boxes would keep using the alibili that these boxes are not meant to support 3rd party addons, as it's painfully obvious that without being able to access content from these addons, sales of these boxes would probably drop by 90%. i'm just hoping that the the new fork of 17.1 which i read in a post on here, will perform better that this(17.0) fork. all this being said, i am really rueing the fact that i purchased this box, as mygica has not provided an effective method of upgrading the firmware.

    We will have 17.1 available soon. So you should be good with this next version for at least 12-18 months, since this is usually how long new Official Kodi versions are out until they go to Kodi 18 for example. I cannot comment on 18 right now, as we do not know enough information about it at this time.

    Ive had my 1800 for 2 years and have enjoyed it immensly. I learned that the on/off issue is resolved by not turning it off. ☺ Ive also learned it works best with a more basic version of Kodi compared to some of the big builds out there. Its not perfect but it is pretty good. Would I buy it now? Probably not. There's bigger/better/faster boxes out there now running more recent Android versions. You have to do your homework. Google and you tube are your friends in that regard. Considering it's paid for itself many times over in the 2 years Ive had it and that there was an update to lollipop to keep it going into Kodi 17, Im not complaining. The update process was a PITA tho. Took me several tries and a bunch of reboots but it finally took. Good luck. If you keep trying, 5.1 will probably load.

    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/

    Here is 16.1 that I have, it came directly from Kodi.tv's website It should work, as I have used it on a lot of boxes without issues. kodi-16.1-Jarvis-armeabi-v7a.apk

    Too late. Your company's lack of support had led me to throw out MyGica and move on to a competitor who offers real OTA updates.

    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."
