The Skystream ONE – Pre Release Information

Jul 20, 2016 7 months ago No Comments
Fastest Android TV Box

Skystream ONE Android TV Box As many of you know, we announced late last week that we are going to release a brand new Android TV Box in the near future. While this article is not going to release any of the specs or include any actual pictures of the Skystream ONE, it will release a few small tidbits about the box. But before we get into the Skystream ONE, we wanted to discuss some of the questions and comments that we have gotten about the release announcement. Why are you discontinuing the X5 Android TV Box? When we made the announcement that we were releasing the Skystream ONE we got a few people asking why we discontinued the X5, so we wanted to address that in this article. We decided to discontinue the X5 due to manufacturing times. We love the X5 and all that it can do. Both of our owners and all of our employees use them every day. The X5 is a great box and will be a streamers dream for years to come. The issue that we ran into was that since it was a one off completely custom box, it took over two months from when we placed the order until we received them. With a product that was in such a high demand it was an everyday battle to keep them in stock. We spent countless hours contacting all of the various component makers getting updates, contacting their sources and to be blunt, freaking out on them to get materials and parts faster. It may have seemed like we always had them in stock, because we did. But it took our owners working 65 hours plus a week coordinating custom parts to make that happen. They eventually made the decision that it was not sustainable to do for the long term. So the decision was made to begin work on a brand new box that we decided to name the Skystream ONE. Why did you name it the Skystream ONE? The name was chosen to signify solidarity, strength and to go back to our roots when the company was started in early 2013. We have always been a streaming company, it is in our blood, it is what we do and what we do best (Besides finding awesome customers like yourself.) We want to get back to our roots, saving our customers hundreds or thousands of dollars a month is what makes us smile each morning when we walk in the door. ONE represents simplicity. We designed a simple beautiful Android TV Box. We took all of the likes and dislikes about the way our boxes looked and combined all of the good into the new ONE. If you have been following our Facebook you may have noticed that we stated that the new Skystream ONE will not be black or grey in color. We felt that too many other Android TV Boxes were all black and we wanted something that would stand…

Mar 14, 2016 3 months ago No Comments
X5 remote

Press and Hold “Set” button until yellow light is solid. Press the button you want to program (Menu, Mute, AV/TV), the yellow light will start to blink. Now point the remote that you want the X5 remote to learn from at the front of the X5 remote (Front to Front) and press the button that you want the X5 remote to learn. The yellow light will blink fast and then turn solid if it has received the signal. Now press and hold the “Set” button until the yellow light turns off. Test to see if the X5 remote has learned the function of the button you just programmed. If it does not work the first time try once again. Make sure that the yellow light blinks fast after pressing the button you want it to learn as this indicates that the X5 remote has learned the function. The X5 can only learn IR (Infrared Signals). Most remote controls use IR, but some of them use radio frequencies and cannot be learned by the X5 Remote Control.
