  1. Whats the Best Android TV Launcher for MyGica devices ? Hi Guys Please give some feedback. I got my first MyGica 495Pro and ATV1960 with Android™ 5.1 Lollipop loaded. I got used to the 5.1 interface and never even considered changing the theme. Everything worked. The interface was acceptable. Now I just installed version 7.1 and I don't mind the way it works. I just don't like the way it looks. Can you recommend a better looking and perhaps more functional launcher. Whats the Best Android TV Launcher for MyGica devices ?
  2. http://mygicasupport.com/index.php?/files/ Be sure to select the exact firmware for your device model number.
  3. I spent many hours looking for solution. Perhaps you have an older version of firmware on your device that is incompatible with the latest Showmax app. I just upgraded my firmware to version 7.1 and now Showmax works. Try this link and follow these steps. https://www.mygica.co.za/downloads/www.syntech.co.za/Downloads/Mygica/update_MyGica_ATV495X_wv_7.1_20171221_V1.0.rar How to process the steps: 1. Download the zip file 2. Unzip 3. Format your MicroSD Card to FAT32 4. Drag and drop all the files from Unzip folder to root of your MicroSD card 5. Insert the MicroSD card in your ATV495 series unit (while it is without power) 6. Connect HDMI, turn the TV on 7. Hold power button pressed down while inserting the power supply cord 8. Hookup the power cord while holding down the Power button 9. Still, hold on to the power button till you see the Recovery screen. 10. Using the remote select (( Apply update from EXT )) 11. Select "update from sd card" if your file is on microSD card or Select " update from udisk " if your file is on USB 12. You will see the file img name( update_MyGica_ATV495X_wv_7.1_20171221_V1.0.img ) select it. 13. It will take 3 to 4 minutes to update then goes back to Recovery Screen, Select ( Reboot ) You will see the android guy, give it 5 minutes and you're back to the main screen. NOTE: your Box will be reset to factory settings. Setup your device with your account and connect to the internet. Now using the Google Play store app on your device , search and download and install the newest Showmax app. (and Youtube / Netflix) Also always make sure that your device is set to the correct time zone - Showmax /Netflix often doesn't start if this setting is incorrect. Here is a possible reason from Showmax. If your device came with Android TV firmware version 5 or 6 you might start to have problems in 2019 with streaming Digital Rights Management content. Why did I receive a message that my mobile device will no longer be compatible with the Showmax app? (PLA1019) Showmax aims to support as many devices as possible. However, with new technology being released all the time, it isn’t always possible to continue supporting some older phones and tablets. If you have recently received a message that your device will be or is no longer compatible with Showmax, try: Making sure you have the latest version of the Showmax app Installing newest version of the operating system available for your device Android: Google uses a digital rights management (DRM) platform to help combat piracy. If your device supports only Widevine Classic DRM, you won’t be able to stream or download content on that device from 31 July 2019, as Widevine Classic is being decommissioned. To check, go to Menu > About > Supported DRMs, and see if only Widevine Classic is listed.
  4. My solution was to update to the latest firmware (version 7.1 on this Forum) for my device. (There is nothing on mygica.co.za website firmware link) Then download the new app versions of Showmax and Netflix from the Google Play store.

  6. Correction. The toothpick reset button is on the ATV1960. For the ATV495, with the microsd card in the slot, press and hold the power button while inserting the power cord.
  7. I had the same problem last week. (Early September) It seems the latest versions of Netflix and Showmax on the Google Play Store are not compatible with the older android software. I kept on having to download and use older versions of Netflix and Showmax from the Aptoide Store. Then recently it became impossible to sign in to my Showmax account on the ATV495. Netflix gave me an incompatible software version error. My Netflix kept on updating to versions that wouldn't work on my device. No problem with login on my other devices and computers.. My solution was to upgrade my ATV495 Android TV firmware version 5 to version 7.1 (It has DRM (Widevine Modular support) Load the firmware file in the root folder of a Fat32 formatted MicroSD card and use a toothpick to press and hold the button deep inside the av socket while turning your device on. https://www.mygica.co.za/downloads/ ATV495X firmware (Version 7.1) Now the latest version of Showmax and Netflix from Google Play store both work on my device Hope it helps for you too.
  8. Just to clarify. The ATV1960 user manual shows the reset button to be between the MicroSD Slot and the HDMI Port. On my unit, this is where the audio cable port for the 3,5mm stereo audio jack cable is located. No reset button there. After many attempts and trying all sorts of methods I found the reset button is actually hidden deep inside of the AV / 3,5mm stereo audio port. Used a toothpick to keep the button held in while powering up to boot into the new firmware on the Micro SD card. The little push button goes in by about 1mm.

  10. I thought I bricked my ATV495 . I ended up with a solid orange light. Nothing worked Without thinking I plugged my USB adapter containing micro sd Android 7.1 into a USB slot instead of the Micro Usb Slot. I ended up with a solid orange light. Nothing worked I followed all the steps above. I had a similar experience to user QVortex , the USB port closest to the SD card slot recognized my device instantly and started initializing. (Windows 10 - 1903) Holding the power button never worked for me. Then the device got stuck with error [0x10303004]Romcode/Switch status/Identify/Error result - It was stuck at 4% Did a Google search for the error. https://forum.freaktab.com/forum/tv-player-support/amlogic-based-tv-players/s905x/624264-usb-burning-tool-error-restore-firmware/page2 05-22-2019, 02:57 Originally posted by daf52 View Post Flashed with USB Burning Tool v2.1.6. Always stuck at 4%, changed the temp to 10/80 got stuck at 98% then changed the temp setting to 0/90 and SUCCESS 100% This is too crazy..after changing temperature setting it worked for me too! Whats this?!?!?!!? I then changed the temperature setting range on the USB Burning Tool software - View / Temperature Settings - From Range between 0 to 90 Then it worked. Burning completed successfully . I got my device back to 5.1.
  11. I tried multiple times. The USB port closest to the SD card slot recognized my device instantly and started initializing.
