Android TV Box problem


Andywool

Question

Ok, I'm hoping someone can help me with a problem I'm having with an Android TV box.

First I bought an 

link hidden, please login to view
 box from Amazon for £60 and was having trouble with the box's display settings (I wasn't sure weather the box was at fault or the TV).
When I tried to select one of the 4K settings on the box the screen would flash and distort like crazy, when I tried to select one of the 1080p settings it wasn't as bad but still flickered badly. When I selected one of the 1080i settings it was fine, but no good if I wanted to play 4K content.

I tried flashing different ROM's on the box, custom and stock, each one had different results. I found an older stock ROM which was fine with all of the 4K settings but XBMC was crashing a lot.

I thought the box was faulty so sent it back and ordered a T8-AML V2 box from droidsticks for just over £100 which is very similar to the M8, and guess what, It has exactly the same problem as the M8, not being able to select certain display settings etc. So, looks like i'm gonna have to send that one back also.

I'm thinking that these boxes are incompatible with the TV I have (55UB850V - Firmware 04.36.32) Maybe it's the TV's firmware that is the problem?

I've tried different HDMI ports, but still exactly the same.

Have any of you guys got one of these TV boxes and have had any trouble with it? or could you recommend a box that will work with my TV?

Thanks.

      Hi,
      Ongoing problem!!
      About a month ago I switched from BT to Vodafone FTTP (Fibre) broadband (100Mbps)
      Since then I've had buffering on my LG TV (55UM7610PLB). This is connected to the router by ethernet cable.
      My first thoughts were to do with the internet connection, I checked and tested everything. Vodafone have also checked everything and Openreach have replaced the ONT. Still got the problem though.
      So, I've turned to the TV. The LG chat and phone help were pretty low level and not at all helpful.
      Google turned up a possible solution which involved resetting the location services and removing it's automatic status. This sort of worked. Watching UHD Frozen Planet 2 was bufferless. But the next day, watching ITV hub was worse than ever.
      You would have thought with an 100Mbps connection it would all work so well....but it doesn't.
      Is it the TV? 
      Is there a fix? 
      Any ideas much appreciated.
      Thanks

      We just purchased a new LG WebOS TV OLED 65" and running the setup through the app or the TV remote says it can't load the user agreement. This is blocking us from getting to streaming apps like Nexflix or any smart functions like Voice assistant.
      TV worked fine for a few days but voice assistant stopped working and after much effort LG tech said to  Reset to Initial Settings. Now we have mentioned no smart functions. TV is on ethernet and its browser functions on web fine. Tried running off neighbor's wifi with same results.
      Tried switching to different country, unplugging/hold power button for 20 seconds/wait one minute,  resetting TV multiple times, setting up remote again, ...
      Error message: Unable to Load User Agreements  A server error has occurred while downloading  the User Agreements. You must download and agree to the terms of the User Agreements to use this feature or application. Do you want to try to download them again… Unable to Load User Agreements  Sorry, but the User Agreements  can't be downloaded at this time…Please check your internet connection and try again later.    No change when trying over five days.
      Now there is no local company available to service TV. Maybe it's time to send it back and give LG TV a one star rating. I am willing to change motherboards but doubt if LG would go along with that.
      Anyone have any ideas.

      Tried to launch the Amazon Music app on my TV this morning and got this error. This just looks like an expired certificate error, but the app is 1.0.0 and hasn't been updated since release in 2020, so I suspect it's not supported anymore anyway. Anyone have it working on perhaps a newer TV? This one's two or three years old.

      Hi all, I have this 4K LG 49UF772V TV which has had this issue since I bought it second hand and I'm wondering if anyone has any idea how it can be fixed as I am looking to sell it.

      The issue: On the LG menu and main home screen + sub menus and programs such as Netflix, there are black squares all over the display which makes it impossible to use. However, the TV works flawlessly when using the display with a HDMI device connected.

      I suspect this could be either a software issue since there's no physical defects with the display itself. The TV has the latest software update running (04.06.25). I've attempted to reflash it and downgrade it but I haven't managed to find a way to do it.

      Also note that only 1 of the 3 HDMI ports work. The other two gives no output when a device is connected.

      I have also carried out a factory reset and this has not made a difference.

      I have attached a short video showing the TV connected to chromecast and the display working as expected and then pressing the settings button yields artifacts/small black squares. + some pictures showing this.

      Thank you in advance!

      Hi all!
      I'm wondering if there is a way to have the subtitle name on the tv osd when activating.
      I have several video file with many subtitle tracks embedded and each one with a name. When I turn on subtitles I can browse the subtitle tracks just by number and not name (in this moment I have a file with 13 different subs lunguage, can you imagine how long I take to find the right one? 😂)
      thanks for any contribute.
