  1. I downgraded Skype from v8.x to v7.x and now it works. I guess the latest version of Skype was not compatible with the version of Android running on the 1800e. All is well now
  2. Skype on 1800e Any idea why Skype on my 1800e suddenly stopped working? I am running the latest v4.4 firmware and the latest version of Skype. I noticed this problem after upgrading Skype a few versions ago. My Skype has been working for years and now it will not transmit my video. I know the camera is working because it lights up and i see video locally, but the other party cannot see my video. I've been using the same Logitech C920 webcam, which has been working for years, but now it has stopped. Is Skype no longer supported by this device?
  3. Yes, it is likely older stock... however, it is still much better (more useful, IMHO) than the stock remote. And with the workaround i've used, it serves my purposes quite nicely. Tks, Todd
  4. Actually, i've found an even "better" (I think?) workaround. I was able to program the "TV/AV" button to use as the Power ON/OFF button, and it works perfectly. Of course, that's not much good to you if you are using the "TV/AV" button (which i am not)... and it works like a charm. Unfortunate this remote uses a different IR remote code for the power button... though i suppose it was designed to work with older versions of this product. Tks for the helpful replies though... appreciate it. Ever since this WiFi disconnect issue has cleared, i've been using this box regularly now... it's a good product (when it works)
  5. Hi, I recently purchased a KR-53 (or KR53 Air Mouse) to upgrade my remote. However, i have noticed that the red power button on the top left of the remote does not work when trying to standby or reboot my ATV582 Gica box. Is this a known issue and is there a workaround (other than having to use 2 remotes)? Tks, Todd
  6. Hi, what Justin suggested for me was to do the factory reset under other settings.. this did work, but wiped out my xbmc data ( which I backed up and then restored) and then I had to re-establish my playstore, netflix, etc credentials. Hi, I did the factory reset and it seemed to complete the update. I now see "Kodi" instead of "XBMC". However, my gica box now has NO N/W CONNECTIVITY!!! It has been down since early April, as we've just been using our very reliable WD Live box for streaming video. Any suggestions on how to fix this??? Another factory reset (and flip a coin)?? The box can see my WiFi networks (i have two) and i can connect and authenticate to the 2 networks, however, there is no internet connectivity. And i know i'm well within range, because my WD Live box is connecting and streaming with no issues at all. Not impressed at all... pls advise. (i'm really considering returning this box to the store... i understand the benefits and how powerful it "can" be... but right now it's an expensive paperweight). BTW, when i first purchased the ATV 582, i had to return 3 of them to the store before i found one that would work. The problem with the "faulty" ones was that the seemed to overheat, and then i'd lose n/w connectivity. 2 of the them would never connect at all (the same problem i'm experiencing now)... is there a "known" h/w issue with these boxes overheating?? They are a VERY compact box, so it's not surprising that they may be prone to overheating. And i don't have it sitting on or beside anything generating heat, so it's all self-generated heat!! Pls help me revive my ATV582, before i return it to the store... Tks, Todd
  7. Hi, what Justin suggested for me was to do the factory reset under other settings.. this did work, but wiped out my xbmc data ( which I backed up and then restored) and then I had to re-establish my playstore, netflix, etc credentials. Yeah, i'll probably give that a go. I don't really have a choice. I spoke too soon when i gave my feedback. Since my upgrade, i have absolutely NO N/W CONNECTIVITY. I started with Netflix - didn't work; Google Play Store - didn't work; web browser - didn't work. Despite having tried a couple different WiFi networks, and both telling me i was connected and showing an assigned IP @, i now have absolutely no internet connectivity. Yet my WD Live Box, right next to it, works just fine. In fact, even before the latest upgrade, whenever i tried Netflix on the MyGica box, it was always choppy and buffering, while my WD Live box has been humming along without any interruption or issues at all. I really hope MyGica will improve it's quality soon - and maybe once i do the factory reset, I will see a noticeable change (i hope so). However, having to do a factory reset after every upgrade seems a bit ridiculous, and it's one of the reasons i will not recommend MyGica to people - because it really just seems to be a Beta product at best. Powerful, yes, but Beta product. You REALLY need to turn this around quickly.
  8. I had the exact same experience as "wallerjs". Upgrade failed 2/3's of the way through (the Android robot froze), so unplugged (after 15-20mins of waiting), powered on again, and then the upgrade completed (except it did not upgrade XBMC... still running v13.2). How do we upgrade this now?? My ATV 582 seems a lot "snappier" now... happy about that. Was surprised to see we are still on Android Kitkat v4.4.2... thought we would have been upgraded to v4.4.4. Tks for the new load!
