tHE ISSUE CANT BE WITH dstv APP, no ways guys

 

Yes it actually is.

They decided to make their app only work with Google Certified Devices, this is the first time I've ever seen an app do this before.

We're trying to find a work around, but no guarantees at this time

Other users have reported that they are still able to use DSTV if they revert back to the previous version

Hi All,

My DSTV Now app also stopped working and when I made contact with DSTV, they politely replied:

"Well D, it shouldn't have worked to begin with, the app has never supported the device.~HBB"

I know this has been asked before but how do you revert back to the old version?

TIA

Thanks for sharing this

No worries. Just uninstall the latest DStv Now and install one version below. I did that last night and it works 100%

Mygica must update the firmware of the boxes to make them Google certified!!

You cannot just update the boxes to become Google Certified

As I have said on other posts, getting the devices certified by Google is not possible.

So maybe I am delusional but I am pretty sure it was said the Atv1800, 582 was Google certified. See my attachments for claims made and a screenshot of what the app states.

We here in South-Africa cannot use the DSTV app as it appears that there is again the issue of the device ID. 

Justin, thanks for helping us in this matter.

The issue is not Device ID, it is because the devices being used are not Google Certified.
DSTV decided to make their app only work with Google Certified Devices on their recent app update.
Plus the certified OS  was Android 4.4, I can see you're using 5.1

Yes the 582 was certified before, but it expired and Google is no longer renewing or accepting AOSP Google Certified Applications for TV Boxes
Only for Mobile/Tablet Devices


We're trying to find a work around for this, but cannot promise anything.

Thanks Justin, the DSTV now app is pretty much affecting now the majority of my Android devices (tv's, smart boxes, etc.) 

If the engineers can find a fix - right on 😎

DSTV owns the app and the content also, this is how they have chosen to make their content available to their customers.  Its a way of protecting their content. 

If I we're a customer of DSTV, I would be complaining, after all you are a paying customer.

When will you be able to certify Mygica products i bought a ATV 495x 2 months ago and DSTV Now was working fine until Monday

How do you install a previous version of the app?

You cannot just certify any device, it doesn't work that way
As I have mentioned before, Google doesn't certify TV boxes that use the Mobile Version of Android
