    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.

    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 !

    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.

    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?

    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/

    Google Playstore Certified Hi there I have a Mygica ATV585. Since this morning my cable company’s streaming app, dstv app, won’t stream anything and says the device is not playstore certified. Which is odd since it worked perfectly yesterday. If it helps, I updated the app this morning and then it began with this bs. Is there a patch for this. I’m from South Africa, btw. Regards Werner

    MyGica ATV1900 Pro DRM partnership with DSTV Now Hi As South African users we are unable to install the DSTV Now app as it is incompatible with the device. DSTV Now suggests that it will be supported once a DRM partnership has been established. With more and more of us buying this device, we respectfully ask that you establish said relationship so that we can also view our digital tv subscription using the myGica box.

    If you downloaded from the following link, then it would be a .ZIP file and the compressed .IMG file would be inside it. Your iMac may have decompressed the .ZIP automatically. If you still have a problem after trying to re-install, then it would be helpful to show the exact name and size (in bytes) of the .IMG and any other files that you copied to the root folder of the USB FAT32 flash drive.

    We are just going to fix the Wifi connection issue after coming out of standby. We should be able to send this as an OTA update. As for another full firmware release You probably won't see it, this is the most stable version of 5.1 we could make to date. That is why its been released as BETA only. There has not been an update to 5.1 from Amlogic for the S812/S802/S805 chipsets in almost 2 years, and they have told us there wont be another one again as they have stopped support.

    Okay, good. I'm surprised no one else reported this. I was told I was the first which means you're the second. I found a clear noticeable difference upon the first startup on 5.1 seeing the opening mygica animation. Whenever there's fast motion it feels like there's almost frames missing at times. Can't you guys just replicate the settings from 4.4 and transfer them to 5.1? I don't know much about the hardware/software, maybe it's more complicated than I imagine. But I guess they're working on it so will stay tuned for an update.

    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

    I was told by tech support to post this topic here. Why they couldn't answer this on the phone is frustrating. I have purchased a MyGica atv1900 pro. I wanted to use it as a storage device on vacation and later for streaming applications. 1) I have installed a WD black 1TB HD. The 1900 pro does not detect the device. I have no way to format this HD other than through the 1900 pro as I do not own a laptop. Tech support stated that I had to get a laptop and format the HD in order for it to be recognized by the 1900 pro. Any suggestions on this to not use a laptop to format? 2) I have a canon G12. The 1900 pro recognizes the camera and is able to download images through the Gallery app. It does not detect or download video from the camera in Gallery or the file manager. How can I download video from my camera to the device? 3) There is no online manual for this product on your website. I am on vacation in 5 days, I would like to use your product for what you said it could do. If not, it is an expensive paperweight with regard to storage. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Ok then that is because the one that came with the unit is the Android TV Version and cannot be found on the Tablet/Mobile version of the Google Play Store The new version you installed which you said does not work with the remote, is made for touch screens. I have attached the latest APK of the You Tube Android TV Version to this post. You can install it manually from a USB drive or SD Card, just use the pre installed app on the box called "APP INSTALLER" to install it from a USB or SD card. com.google.android.youtube.tv_1.3.11-10311100_minAPI17(armeabi)(nodpi).apk

    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.
