Software letdown

Post by poshpantspaddy » Fri Mar 30, 2018 9:42 am

I completed the quick setup and everything seemed promising but...

Android TV app (both Sony and Nvidia Shield)
Vbox is identified but it will not run when selected so I have to enter the IP address manually every time
Running the EPG crashes the app every time on both Android TV devices

Android App (pink version)
Same issues as above

Apple App
Even worse, slow clunky, freezes

Web Access
No sound

I hope you can offer some advice

I can recommend either IPTV or Perfect Player for Android.

I gave up with the Vbox app on android, it just never worked.

Perfect Player gives you a more set top box feel to it and has an easy to navigate epg which you can set up yourself to download from your favourite epg source.
IPTV is good it you just want to watch channels and not to bothered about an epg.It does have epg functions but its not as easy to find or use.
I have found IPTV is better for those of a non technical persuasion, like my wife or mum :) .
Vbox XTI-3334. SW Ver 2.58

If you have Android TV you should check out their live channels app.
