Android TV Box Settings

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…

What are Android TV Boxes

SkystreamX is always on the cutting edge of technology. When we started developing the SkystreamX Android TV Boxes we started to tell our friends about it. They seemed to be mystified and had a hard time understanding what it was. The number one question we got was (Does it have Netflix?) So I decided to write this article to explain a little better about what Android TV Boxes are and what they do. What are Android TV Boxes? Android TV Boxes are in the category of Set Top boxes. A Set Top Box is a small computer that is designed to connect to your TV using an HDMI Cable or AV Cable (SkystreamX can connect using either one and comes with both.) Android Set Top boxes are basically android tablets without a screen. Your TV becomes the screen once you hook up your Android Set Top Box. Android TV Boxes turn your TV into an android tablet with about 2 minutes of set up. If you have ever wished you could use all of your android apps on your TV then an Android TV Box is for you. What do Android TV Boxes do? I could write for hours on this subject, but I am going to break this section into a few categories to save time. An Android TV Box can do everything that a normal Android Tablet or Phone can do, plus much more. Android TV Boxes Android Apps With an Android TV Box you can download and use any Android App in the Google Play store. There are over 800,000+ Android Apps currently available in the Google Play Store. So when people ask what can Android TV Boxes do, it is hard to answer because the possibilities are endless. Here are some popular Android Apps that you can use on an Android Set Top Box. Social Media Facebook Twitter Instagram Linkedin Four Square Tumblr Reddit Games (A USB gaming controller might be needed to play certain games) Candy Crush Subway Surfers Clash of the Clans Farm Heroes Despicable Me Angry Birds Music Pandora Soundcloud Spotify Beats Music Shazam iHeart Radio News The New York Times The Wall Street Journal Barrons The Washington Post The Huffington Post CNET When it comes to Android Apps the Google Play store has you covered. There is literally an app for anything you could possible want to do on an Android Set Top Box. This is one of the many reasons that Android TV Boxes have become so popular recently and have started gaining popularity over closed system set top boxes like Roku. Android TV Boxes – Watching TV & Movies One of the main reasons that people are rushing out to by Android TV Boxes like the SkystreamX is that they want to watch TV, Movies & Live Sports on their TV’s without paying for expensive cable services and premium channels. Most Android TV Boxes are capable of streaming TV shows and movies to your TV. But where most of them…
