If your updater is Spinning – Checking for updates, Please Wait. Click here!

Sep 8, 2017 9 months ago No Comments

Instructions below if you want to skip the explanation. If you are having issues with the Updater app spinning, we have instructions that you can follow to install a new version of the updater which will work perfectly. If you have already done the update and have the new Media Center app and Skin you do not need to do anything. This is only for people who have not done the update yet. Here is an explanation as to what happened. Our updater talks to an intermediary server that tells our main server that there are updates and directs the Updater app to the links that the user clicks on. We learned during this update that our intermediary server has a limit on the amount of hits it will allow in a 30 minute period. Once this limit is reached it blocks any new hits until it resets. We have used this system since our updater was introduced and never run into this limit before. The new Updater app version is located on a different intermediary server with no limits. So once everyone is on the latest version this will never happen again. With that being said, The version of the Updater that is currently installed on your box is still pointing to the old server. So it will not update to the latest one until it can hit our old server and sees that there is a new version. So if you can wait a little while for the amount of hits on our old server to slow down your updater will eventually update to the new version of the Updater app. We do reccomend waiting until the Updater app updates itself as it is the easiest way to do it. Instructions But if you want to install the newest version immediately, we have provided instructions and links below. 1. Visit https://www.skystreamx.com/pages/downloads from your boxes browser 2. Click on SkystreamTV Updater App. Stay on the page for a few seconds. 3. Press the Home button on your remote 4. Click on All Apps or My Apps 5. Click on the App Installer App (Will be at the top of the apps) 6. Click on Local Disk 7. Let it load and then click on the Skystream Updater app. The app will be called v37-signed.apk 8. Click on Install and allow it to install 9. Follow the instructions in This Article   We are very sorry for this inconvenience

International Thank a Developer Week!!! (5/15-5/22) #ThankADev

May 12, 2017 5 months ago No Comments
#ThankADev

Did you know that May 15th through the 22nd was International Thank a Developer Week? Probably not, because we just made it a thing! Why you ask? Because we can and that’s how we roll and these awesome developers need to be shown some love! IMPORTANT!!! NEVER contact a developer of an addon or program and give them a hard time because it may be having some issues or may be down! If you do, we will find you! Not really, but please do not ever do this. If you wish to contact a developer about an issue with an addon, be polite and friendly. Explain in great detail exactly what is happening and offer to provide any additional information. Addon and program developers are the backbone of streaming. Without them there would be no streaming. So we feel it is important to explain exactly who these people are, why they create and maintain addons and how much they get paid. Who are Addon Developers? Addon developers are normal people just like you and me from all over the world. They usually have a background in computer programming or computer coding. Addon developers usually have normal jobs in the technology field. Addon developers have families and things that happen in life just like everyone else. Addon developers are of high intelligence and have a charitable and giving nature. Why do developers create and maintain Addons? How much do they get paid? Because they make millions of dollars from all of the donations they get from fans around the world. We are totally joking and the truth could not be farther from that. Addon developers do what they do because they are giving people who selflessly use their talents to provide enjoyment for others free of charge. Yes, These awesome developers do this for no personal gain at all. They are not paid by anyone to create and maintain these awesome addons. The truth is that these great people spend their FREE time working on and maintaining these addons for you to enjoy. They take time out of their busy lives to provide you, a random person to them with a great program for you to use. They have no idea who you are, but still spend their time maintaining and updating something that you use. What do Addon developers ask for in return? RESPECT! These developers do not put pop ups in their addons begging for money. They don’t send you emails asking you to donate to them. All developers want is respect! They want to be respected as a human beings, acknowledged for the hard work that they do and want people to respect the code they create by not copying it and branding it as your own work. And please don’t think these great humans are out begging for praise and admiration. They simply do not want to be berated by users of their FREE addon, because something isn’t working to the (Free) users satisfaction. That is what Thank a Developer…
