Eg. Apps often show they've got updates pending when they haven't.

That's an issue plaguing every Android TV device, I have a Xiaomi Mi Box S and a Mecool KM9 Pro and it's the same problem, apparently it's a bug with some Android TV core update, a fix is supposed to be coming soon.

I don't understand is, why other branded boxes videos been shown here that are running TVOS 9.0 Beta and barely running on the box , why pushing MyGica to bring out the OS while almost 80% fails, due to lack of chips support for this Max model. 

There are some videos for MyGica bringing OS 9.0 you can ask those YouTubers to tell you what is good and what is bad about it. 

but i hate to say this,  don't advertiser other brands on this forums while those so called you-tubers don't understand anything about how chips work or which chips compatible and which are not .  They just make video if the firmware is loadable, and most of the video is BS talk.

I request from one of the mods to go through the videos and delete them one by one.  unless they have trade mark MyGica on them.  except that it is useless we have most of these pictures from our OS 7.1.2.

** i am not deleting them myself because alot of you think i am the only one that cares less for other brands **

** i am pro MyGica **

How is the Mi box S ?

It's not perfect (it lacks an ethernet port, it has only 8GB of internal storage and it has only one usb 2.0 port) but it does the job done, plus, it gets updates more frequently.

When you are using a AndroidTVOS you can't just simply install apps using USB. There are some steps to sideload the app, if that is not compatible and if they are not created for TVOS it will not even show up on your main screen. then you will have 2nd and 3rd questions.  

please google some parts for you to understand the difference between So Called AndroidTVOS and PureOS aka Phone OS or Tablet OS. that way makes it easy for you to see how they install APKs on AndroidTVOS.    

If the App is not created by MyGica it is very hard for us to walk you through step by step and teach you and tell you what you are doing wrong or right.

When are we getting this update? Your support sucks. I have a 495 max device and it's giving me endless issues. Netflix doesn't work and while watching youtube and other content, the voice and video is out of sync....I will never buy this brand again, nor can I recommend it to others!

Its been almost the whole year in beta. Are we still getting the update? At least give us some feedback either way.

I tried to apply the 9.0 firmware, the device now just boots to the bootloader. How do I proceed?  Is there a way to load another firmware version?

Android TV 10 was just released, guess it will never arrive to this device since 9 is still in beta, how many months will it take? the hardware inside the 495Max is getting old quickly, by next year, new devices will arrive with at least S905X2:
