Getting the same issue. I've sent email to Geniatech asking for help.   By some miracle my local supplier has a huge special on the max today. I had problems with mine from day 1. Chromecast built-in didn't work and I kept getting an error saying Google play games had crashed on initial setup when it was time to pair the remote. Unfortunately I bought it from someone online and not from a store so I had no warranty.  Won't do that again.

I see, I hope Geniatech provide some help, it's suppose to work because I tested the other firmware in the website (the ATV598Max) and it loaded correctly into USB burning tool so I hope they fix that issue.

Geniatech asked for information on my serial number etcetera.

I've tried various things since.

putting the firmware on a micro sd.

Also usb stick. Both formatted fat32

holding the reset button and powering it on. Holding the button for 15 seconds while doing that.

This is the procedure for the 495 pro.

No luck so far. I find it amazing there's no recovery procedure for the box if an update fails.

I am getting very confused. Just a simple oke who wants to watch Android TV. All this stuff is getting too high tech. My Gica 495 Max  played up almost immediate;y when it was connected. Keep on buffering on some sites etc. It is still under a 10 day return guarantee. Spoke to the supplier yesterday and he says I am welcome to return it

Anyways many thanks to the members on this forum who assisted me and tried to help.

Kind regards from South Africa

Great. I'm a simple oke too. From Cape Town :). Mines bricked so I'm looking at other players. Mine gave me problems from day 1 too. Just getting the remote to pair was a pain. I kept getting a Google games has crashed error. I had to buy new Bluetooth headphones because this model is very finicky.

Netflix also doesn't work properly even with their patch.

My chromecast doesn't work at all and now this.. The local support seems pretty useless. I sent them a message asking for help with my bricked player. No response.

I am going to swap for a  Olink MediaMate Plus Android Media Player at Computer Mania Cape Gate. ( Yip in the C-Town too:D) Brandon and the guys there are very help full.  i have no clue about these or other devises of this nature so I am holding thumbs. I am not worried about getting DSTV just want to be able to load Mobdro and stream live what ever I want. Hope it works.

They do have stock.

Don't do it yet. Mygica in South Africa  on Friday told me to wait until its available on their site Mygica.co.za. They haven't even got a working copy yet!
