  1. MyGica ATV495x

    HA HA HA.
  2. MyGica ATV495x

  3. MyGica ATV495x

    So, I gave good advice!
  4. Try Justin's method in this thread to make sure the repository is working: You can also try clearing data/cache for the Kodi app and uninstalling/reinstalling the Kodi app.
  5. MyGica ATV495x

    If you do not have the basic knowledge and/or facilities to connect the Android box to your TV, then I suggest you return the unit before going any further.
  6. What do you mean by "Says may be due to no WiFi connection but I'm connected" ? Have you tested your Internet connection using Chrome browser or Speedtest app?
  7. Device Lock - Require PIN?

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experiences for others on this forum. I agree that, if people want a simple device to watch downloaded movies (Plex, DLNA, Airplay) and/or major Internet streaming services (e.g.,, Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, Hulu), then they should just buy a Roku or Apple TV. Android is great for smartphones, but not well-adapted yet for watching TV because the user interface is touchscreen-oriented and there are many different hardware manufacturers. A lot of people buy Android boxes to run Kodi to watch "free" content, but end up struggling because Kodi also tries to run well on all platforms. Being a retired IT software/hardware guy, I personally don't mind tinkering around with my rooted Android boxes (1 x ATV1900PRO, 2 x ATV595PRO, 2 x now-dead ATV520E). I have the Rii i24 and MyGica KR41 Air fly mouse remotes. Some people think their problems are only on MyGica boxes and don't realize that the same and/or different problems exist on other boxes. I actually use MyGica as a cheap and low-power "server" device, not as a "client" device for direct viewing. With only 1 app (i.e., Servers Ultimate Pro), I run a DLNA server for streaming downloaded movies, an SMB server for copying files from/to my PC, and a DDNS server to synchronize my public domain name's external IP address for remote VPN access to my home network. Previously, I used an expensive and power-hungry Windows laptop PC laptop 24/7 to do the same and I also ran Plex as the DLNA server on the PC which I found too complicated for my purposes. For viewing, I have 2 x Roku Streaming Sticks on 2 TVs and 1 x LG 4K Smart TV. I am watching out for a sale on a Roku Ultra 4K.
  8. Device Lock - Require PIN?

    It's good that you found a solution that is working for you. There are a number of "kiosk" apps that you can also try out. By the way, there is a later April 25, 2017 version if you want the latest (stable on my ATV495PRO and ATV1900PRO boxes):
  9. Atv 585

    Also, Kodi 17 is not supported on KitKat, but there is a Beta only firmware upgrade:
  10. Atv 585

    Exodus has been replaced by Covenant:
  11. No sound after 5.1 Upgrade

    You should be able to do a factory reset, then reinstall the 4.4 factory firmware (from the Downloads section of this forum). Disclaimer: I do not work for MyGica and I will not be responsible for any failure/damage to your unit.
  12. Update/Reinstall Kodi

    You can try this Beta only:

  14. What is the latest update version?

    There is a later version dated April 25, 2017 on this link: http://update.mygica.com/download/Software/
  15. HDD and usb

    There a number of ways to do this, which varies from simple to complex. Here are 2 of the simple methods: 1. If you have EShare server running on your box (should be preinstalled by MyGica), then you can install the EShare app on your smartphone to transfer files over home wifi network. You can take a look at the videos on YouTube ... Google "eshare app youtube", but I don't use it myself. 2. Buy an USB OTG flash drive from Kingston (e.g., https://www.kingston.com/eN/usb/otg), Sandisk, Verbatim, etc. You use the micro USB end to copy files from your smartphone, then use the standard USB end to copy files to your box.
  16. What is the latest update version?

    I have Build number MyGicaS905V1.30, so yours is an older version. I bought 2 x ATV495PRO recently and both automatically updated during the initial setup wizard. In the worst case, you could do a factory reset and start the initial setup wizard again. I assume you downloaded the version dated March 24, 2017, which may be V1.20. I doubt if there are any significant changes in V1.30 that would be worthwhile chasing after.
  17. What is the latest update version?

    What is the "Build number" that is displayed in Settings->About->Status on your unit?
  18. Bell Fibe TV App

    Hopefully, Bell will fix the app if enough people complain ... eventually?! Make sure you disable auto-update of this app in your Google Play Store app, or it may update again.
  19. Bell Fibe TV App

    It looks like Bell recently updated their app. Try reinstalling an older version. Take a look at this thread starting from @Chantz on 2017-10-20: https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=313108
  20. KODI 17.3 stuttering

    Each new Kodi version brings problems on lots of Android boxes and various Kodi settings have to be adjusted. Google "kodi stuttering android" for lots of info and possible fixes. If you do not want to spend the time and effort, just return the box and don't think about it any more.
  21. T230 DVBT/DVBT2 Drivers Issue

    Some more links for T230, including Software: http://update.mygica.com/download/Software/ http://update.mygica.com/download/Driver/
  22. MyGica ATV1900 Pro DRM partnership with DSTV Now

    I believe ICASA approval and DSTV Now support are separate matters. ICASA is concerned about compliance to South Africa communications regulations which, in the case of MyGica devices, would appear to apply only to the WiFi hardware: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independent_Communications_Authority_of_South_Africa https://www.ellipsis.co.za/type-approval/ It is doubtful that the ICASA sticker tests and certifies DSTV Now or any other application support, which likely falls under consumer protection against false advertising. If you still believe otherwise, then by all means, you should file a complaint with ICASA. You may also request a refund from the vendor of your unit.
  23. What is displayed in Windows when the driver installation is interrupted? What messages do you get?
  24. T230 DVBT/DVBT2 Drivers Issue

    The T230 links for "Manual", "Driver" and "Remote Driver" (but not "Software") are working: http://www.mygica.com/support/
