    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?

    6 different tvs? What a joke. The issue isn't the tv. It's the boot process related to the USB dongle for the remote. Still waiting on the 1800 fix please.

    I would normally put this in the Downloads section, but felt the need to post it here as well I got this from our guys this morning We have been trying this here all day with 100% success so far. You can install this using an SD card or USB drive through the Upgrade app. Fixes the power back on issue everyone has been having We will send out an OTA update for this ASAP --------------------------------------------- I take offence to you saying we do not care about our customers. Our customers is our #1 Priority, as you can see from me almost having 6000 posts on my own. Leaving you guys in the dark about all of this and not keeping everyone updated would have been bad customer service, but that did not happen here. Informing our sellers to give out replacement units was not necessary for this, as this was a software issue and not a hardware issue. So the problem would just keep happening 1 unit after another until the software fix I attached to this post was released. I apologize for the delay in getting this fix, but this was our engineers #1 priority as not only was MyGica devices affected but other OEM boxes as well. I never gave an exact date, as I did not have one to give, I could only give updates whenever I received them.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Gr33n: Seriously, I think you are wasting too much time over an obsolete box and being tremendously unfair to the people here. In my opinion , that box and virtually any box with only 1GB of RAM is barely usable regardless of thousands of happy MyGica ATV 582 users who just don't know any better. The difference you will find with a faster processor in a box with 2 or 3GB of RAM is amazing. The freedom to be more casual adding programs, to not struggle with lag and not having to constantly free up RAM is a blessing.

    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.

    Hey Mygica we have been waiting patiently and politely for a fix and an answer. I realized that you guys don't care about your coustmer satisfaction which is really sad, I really do advice everyone out there is not to make the same mistake as I did and buy this box as there is a lot of boxes out there with reputable sellers and amazing team to keep your box updated. It was really nice testing this box as for me my family n friends will be moving forward with a new box. Enjoy everyone

    Hi, here is the exact issue. I know many people with this model, 1800 and I love it and tell everyone to buy it until now... Canada computers on Kennedy Rd in Scarborough must have got a bad batch. Returned the first one to have the same problem with the next. Even updated the first one to lollipop same problem. This problem happened right of the box. The issue has to due 100% with the usb dongle boot process after going in stand by. This box has come with three different remotes over time. Image 1, Image 2, and Image 3. Image one, is the most recent remote. Plug in the dongle and the box will never turn back on unless you unplug it. Image two, the small remote with the keyboard... Plug the dongle in and the box will turn on and display on the tv but there is a delay and the remote works wacky. Image three, with no dongle inserted, no problems at all. turns on and off like a champ. Please fix the remote issue asap, by the end of the week. I encourage people to buy this box and products from you. If there is no fix soon, I will encourage them to buy other androids. This has gone on too long. Thanks, and if you knew this was the issue, you should have explained it to all of us. Please respond. Thanks

    I have had a box for over 2 years now and I can tell you this forum dose provide answers. Sometimes it takes awhile but Justin and others do come through. Friends of mine have bought your so called cheap "Chinese" boxes and that is exactly what they are. Buy them and you are on your own...no firmware upgrades and no one to talk to. Be a little patient and the fix will come through. Just my 2 cents!

    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."
