    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    If you're worried about trying to figure out which USB Wifi would work As am not sure which ones would work myself, as I've never tried You can maybe look into some cheap power line adapters. Those will definitely work Or something like this. (I put amazon.com, sorry not sure where you're located) https://www.amazon.com/Vonets-VAP11G-300-Wireless-Multi-Functional-Amplifier/dp/B014SK2H6W

    Right, downloaded the 7.1 files again, reformatted the SD Card to FAT32, copied files to root and followed the update procedure as outlined to the letter. Status bar with oscillating multi-coloured rings appeared, ran through installation phase to Erase and screen went black. Unplugged HDMI and re-inserted without disconnecting power at any point and VOILA! We have 7.1 installed Thank you ever so kindly. Always a pleasure to eat humble pie when my views are changed by solid support.

    I spoke too soon. I reformatted the SD card, redownloaded the file just for safety and reupdated the firmware. I ended up with a lot of noise on screen and pulled the power to reboot it. The TV image was freaking out and is why I assumed it was bricked (blinking image). I had to unplug the HDMI cable and replug it back in. From another post I saw Justin suggested this fix that I think applies: So far it looks like it working now. Very happy!

    Which device is this for? How far away is the 5g device? Generally, 5g doesn’t reach nearly as far as 2.4 and on these low cost mobile chipsets, the antenna doesn’t reach as far signals as say a $600 phone would, same as laptops. Any additional info you provide will will assist me in helping the best I can.

    No worries! It is a bit of a geography specific question. LOL! I'm going to try connecting the device directly to my TV using the AV cable and hopefully that'll work . Thanks for getting back to me.

    Hello cfazz77, I would suggest that you use the warranty option and visit, mygica.tv/help It sounds like a defect of some sort, as your symptoms seem very odd, Thanks!

    Agree 100% they are taking people for idiots by false advertising the units capabilities, supposedly offering 'support' and selling units they know will be obsolete in a matter of months. Avoid these guys Spend the extra money and get a product from a reputable company like Nvidia.

    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.

    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

    Have you tried doing a factory reset before downloading the update? When you say you reached out to Mygica support, do you mean me, or our support team? Where did you reach out to that we wouldn’t have responded to?

    Great to hear Appreciate the feedback and thanks for testing it. I think we will make 7.1 Public to everyone for the 1900 PRO and 495 PRO next week Both units will have they're own FW

    I absolutely agree. The 1960 is a great piece of hardware. It even took my 1TB SSD no issues (as USB ☹) Google Store & all things Google worked after registering ROM. However, I returned to BB & picked up the shield at local shop. There will be a lot of open box returns without info to fix or OTA update at BB. I just think your Chefs need more sleep before cooking ROMs or the TL needs to go 😊 Will keep an eye on this 1, but scared off for now. I had to re cook 3x 1800e’s to have stable 5.1, more money than time these days.

    I also have this issue with no fixability in sight. 7.1.2 /Gica 7.1 V1.0 fresh off the shelf at BB Canada. Do we have a proper direction, fix, etc.? Or should it just be returned with a review? Don’t want to be an ass, but suffered the 1800E bloopers for 3 yrs., will not repeat

    Hello AliTo, I'm sorry, but our box does not come with Live TV installed. If you are referring to the MMC program, this is a multi use media app. If you have an tuner or something that supports live tv, then this will be the place to go for this.

    Hi There, Three weeks ago I got an ATV945PRO. Shortly after I updated the firmware with "update_MyGica_ATV495_Pro_wv_5.1_20170324" and still see the weather icon problem when enabling location services. Location services has to be enabled for many applications to work. Is there anyway to solve this annoyance? Thanks.

    Thanks Justin, that confirms my suspicions, but that is not how the 1900 PRO is marketed. Anyhow, no big deal, I don't really need it. It's just that I probably looked like an idiot talking to my remote like Scotty in Star Trek: "bring up the formula for transparent aluminum"

    I agree fully "Bring back the nova launcher" I have never been so confused with the stock launcher, it just ads to user frustration IMHO. It makes it difficult to navigate and find settings if troubleshooting what's happening on the box. When I lost Google Play store upgrading from GMS beta firmware I almost lost it trying to find the file manager and related settings, Give people a vote, don't just take it away. Yes, we can download it but it would be 1st prize to have it installed like it always have.
