Android TV Box problem

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 there,. 
      It is now clear that any  OS, except android and apple,  suffers from low number of apps. 
      It is a shame to struggle with a 'named smart tv' to run a Web site or find a commonly used app! 
       
      Ok! We are stuck with this rubbish OS (bad OS due to the poor App stoee) , why LG doesn't develop an adapter to run android TV apps on the TV? Maybe after testing them, you can allow certain famous apps. Moreover, why don't they provide an easy porting tool for the developer?
      Anyway, if they don't do this, I would advise any one to buy an android TV and ignore the useless OSs such as Tiazen or Webos. 
      Regards,

      OLED65B8 webOS browser won't accept password for Amazon.com account.  Winows Chrome on desktop or Android phone both sign in normally.
      I have several other account sign-ins that do the same thing -- work on desktop but not on TV.  What's going on?

      I just joined Amazon Prime. When attempting to watch a movie on Amazon prime video it says I need to update Google Chrome on my LG smart TV which has WebOs, not Google Chrome.
      How can I watch Amazon Prime videos on my LG TV (made in 2016)?
