    1800e boot card issue

    UPDATE: With the release of KODI Krypton on February 5, 2017 which required that the Android OS 5.0 be used to continue with its use, a lot of Android KODI users had been using 4.4.2 Kit Kat with Jarvis or Isengard and both produced flawless audio and video playback but from that moment on until the Kodi group updated the video playback portion of Leia (KODI 18) many users suffered with video chatter/ stutter that mimicked a child’s flip card display or game (thank you). I have spent countless months experimenting with each adjustable section of KODI to correct this video issue with the understanding that it was a hardware related issue but to my surprise, the introduction of Leia (Beta and RC1) has solved it. I even went as far as purchasing new devices with updated operating systems, clean installs and still without luck. I am not saying that this is or was the only issue but with the release of Kodi v18 “Leia” RC1 my issues have disappeared and are apparently corrected with quality non jittery video again! I highly recommend that if you are experiencing any video issue that you at least attempt this as it is free and apparently works and fixes this problem.

    1800e boot card issue

    1800e boot card issue I have been having trouble with an old 1800e and it appears to be stuttering while playing video greater than SD quality. To solve this, I have been trying to re-image it using the boot card method and this update (update_Mygica_ATV1900AC_5.1_NoNetflixHD_20161121). I have used this many times without issue but now it freezes or stops on the initial re-boot (I have waited 20 minutes) and then it stops loading the apps on the second of eight (Wi-Fi analyzer), (another 15 minutes) so I have unplugged and rebooted to a blank app screen. I can load the necessary apps but I am truly wondering why a clean install would freeze up? Is there a newer boot card sequence or is it just the age of the 1800e?

    No problem and thanks for the support. I received an update file to try and will let everyone know what happens. S....

    MyGica ATV1960

    The box did come from MG North America in Brampton... I will try moving the remote dongel but here is exactly what is happening. This box (an ATV1960) loads or boots the MyGica startup screen and compared to the video display from my 1800e, it is quiet jittery and cheap looking (it is no longer smooth). It then defaults to the N or Nougat screen and all of a sudden it appears to be loading the old Google Nexus Android Launcher (the orange screen with multiple configurations of odd shaped triangles) but flips back into the MyGica 4K HD Android Launcher. The box has had freezing issues since day one and by freezing I mean that it will freeze anywhere and anytime no matter what it is doing! It freezes while sitting on the home page, it freezes while steaming video using YouTube, it freezes while playing content from a self-contained source, and it freezes while simply doing cleanup on both the internal and external hard-drives. In other words, it freezes up no matter what it is up to and without any logic of heavy use or not! PS. The term freezes means that the box is no longer HOT or still active.

    MyGica ATV1960

    To make a long story short, I purchased an open box MyGica 1960 and have had nothing but freezing issues. I have done a factory reset and rebuilt the apps that I use but no matter what I do or use while using the factory installed versions of 4K Movie player, YouTube, Kodi, it simply freezes up (not always right away) and needs to be unplugged to make it work! To make things even harder to figure out, if the box sits inactive for a period of time it also freezes. I would do a hard reset but MyGica does not have the image file online yet (at least that I can see) and I would try this as the factory install may have its own internal glitches.

    MyGica ATV1960

    Here it is just 5 days into owning an ATV1960 and I am sad to say it crashes 2 or 3 times per day! I have done a factory reset and even though it is only using the installed YOUTUBE feature it freezes after viewing as few as 10 videos… Sad to say that I am not impressed but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Just my 2¢

    auto shutdown

    auto shutdown I have recently upgraded to an ATV 1960 from an 1800e and have noticed that my external 1TB drive does not go to sleep when the 1960 does as the 1800 did. I will be installing it in the internal bay so my question is, will the internal drive spin continuously or should I leave it outside so that I can turn it on and off (sort of defeats the purpose)? PS. It is sad that Netflix is still only SD!

    1800e boot card issue

    It loaded with the same errors so I found the 4.4.2 kit kat boot-card and reloaded it and then installed the MyGica Media Centre v17 and everything loaded and all of the jitter and stutter appear to be GONE. Though this is not thoroughly tested I will need to respond later but on first glance at a few it appears fixed... Many thanks

    1800E

    Tons of places will look at it and they can be found by simply doing a search online. If you search this website for reset 1800e (or do an online search) and if you have some patients and courage you can learn to do it yourself. You can try to find the software you are using (http://www.mygica.com/support/) download it, and then search these forums for the how to!
  12. 1960 what is the holdup? I have been patiently waiting for the release date of the ATV 1960 to your general suppliers. Will BB have a total monopoly on this product and if so why? Hopefully this does not come off sounding like a threat but I have owned ONLY MyGica (1200. 1800, 1900, 495) over the years and have been patiently waiting for nearly two years for this item and as I only support our local smaller retailers, it may be time to look elsewhere! Great products, poor choice of delivery!

    New Firmware Playback Choppy?

    Yes this is a clean install but each time I do it it freezes on the second portion of the load and each time it happens I worry of bricking it! I was hoping that there was a newer boot card version than 9/26/2016 and I have also heard that the 1800 simply can't keep up to 5.1.... I never tested youtube and I am not a netflix user.

    New Firmware Playback Choppy?

    I am still using my Mygica 1800e with 5,1 dated Nov 16 update and no matter what I try, it stutters on the video portion of ANY playback except 4K movie player. It is not the internet (50/10) as new everything was updated, including the underground cable from the box. After two sd based clean installs with the same results, maybe there is something new out there that will work as my laptop does not stutter with the same setting (windows). Any suggestion would be extremely appreciated!

    The 1960 is on the shelves at BB but only has Android 6.0 according to the online ad. Just a little bit disappointed!

    1960 release date

    1960 release date I have searched the forums and it appears that this query is not new but still remains unanswered. My 1800e finally died and I would like to purchase a new MyGica that hopefully has a newer OS than 5.1 but also has the future built into it and that model appears to be the 1960. It also appears that this model is not yet available in CANADA so my question is, when will it become available (if ever)? I have noticed that one can be purchased online but I would truly prefer a brick and mortar location. Any advice or direction is appreciated.

    mygica 1960

    I contacted Mygica/Geniatech and they said that the 1960 would be released to Canada via Best Buy in late June or early July 2018 but don't hold your breath as it was originally released in October of 2016. PS. Best Buy tech had no confirmation of the above!

    32 bit vs. 64 bit

    32 bit vs. 64 bit As both my 1800e's have died recently and deemed to be bricks, I purchased a 495Pro from a local seller hoping for simple plug and play. To my surprise, this box has very choppy video, lags behind compared to the clear and crisp video of my 1800's. The dealer has been telling my it is my internet (17.3 Mbps down / 5.71 Mbps up) but there is no issue in playing the same videos off of my laptop. I think that it has the 32 bit version on the box and I was wondering why a 64 bit box would not have kodi-17.6-Krypton-arm64-v8a.apk installed? Thanks for any adivice as said dealer has not been very supportive nor helpful. PS. the box has every app under the sun installed and I have been slowly and selectively removing them.

    mygica 1960

    The box stores have had the ATV 1900 Pro on sale for months now and we are still awaiting the Canadian release date! If my memory serves me correctly, this box was scheduled for a late 2017 release!

    32 bit vs. 64 bit

    Thanks for the response and I will look at updating to 7.1 soon. Fast internet and a debrid service have been wonderful until they both died and this box (probably the programmer) have left me feeling a MyGica low but I will figure it out with the help of ours from this forum.

    Mygica ATV1960 blank

    My 1800e just died and I am looking to replace it with another MyGica product and have been looking at the 1960. Can anyone post an availability date as to when this item will become available in CANADA? Many thanks in advance....

    Frame Rate Question

    Is there any reason why MyGica have not updated their boxes (at least the 64 bit ones) to a frame rate to at least 120? My memory tells me that the frame rate sets the speed of refresh and in fast moving movies/shows this will make they can appear blurry. Just wondering as I am looking at a newer box!

    Will not turn on after turning off

    My 1800 did all sorts of weird and wonderful things but I believe persistence, support from here and trying new things finally has it working. I did many factory resets, erased it many times and tried various ways of reloading 5.1 and as I said earlier, the bootcard method finally solved the will not turn on/off without a hard reboot.
