Android TV Box Resolution

Android TV Box Settings Here at SkyStream we gets lots of phone calls and emails every day. While these calls all vary, there is usually one common theme to all of them. A setting was changed by the user not knowing what it does and they now do not know how to change it back or fix the issue it caused. This is known here at SkyStream headquarters as “tinkering”. We have noticed that it usually happens 1-3 months after someone gets their SkyStream Android TV Box. We have found that once users get comfortable using their box and are more familiar with the settings, the urge to start messing with settings becomes stronger and stronger. Unfortunately, this is causes most of our customer service calls. In this article we are going to cover some of the settings that you should leave alone. This will hopefully save you time and hassle. Android TV Box Display Settings This is a common issue. I changed the resolution on my SkyStream Box because I thought it would make all the videos play in 1080P. Some people like to tinker with it for whatever reason and end up messing up their box. All SkyStream Android TV Boxes are set to a default setting that recognizes the resolution of the TV to which it’s connected. This was done very specifically so that you can move it from TV to TV and it will work. What people do not realize is that if you change the resolution to a setting that the TV cannot read, you will see nothing on the screen except for an error message from your TV saying that it cannot display that format or resolution. A simple change from 1080P 50 Hz to 1080P 60 Hz can make the SkyStream unit not show up on your TV. This setting only effects the resolution of the unit’s home screen and other pages within the launcher. It has no effect on the resolution of any videos played in Kodi or any other video streaming application. The only display setting you should change is the Display Position which is used to adjust the screen size to fit your TV. Android TV Box Audio & Advanced Settings This is another section where people love to tinker and start changing settings believing that if they change them somehow every video stream will play in Dolby Digital 7.1 (The audio will only play what audio format the stream was created with. So if it says 2.0, It will play in 2.0.) All SkyStream Android TV Boxes are set by default to PCM Audio. This means it sends audio through the HDMI to a TV. The only reason you would need to change this setting is if you have the HDMI coming from the SkyStream unit plugged directly into a sound system and the sound system then feeds the video signal back to the TV with a different HDMI. In that case you would change the setting to HDMI Pass…
