FAQ’s about our Android TV boxes and the AndroidTV.tech Kodi Build. Can’t find the answer to your question? Contact us! We’ll do our best to get you the answers you are looking for.
Q: What is the difference between the different boxes you sell?
A: The Formuler Z8 box is a great all around box. Its main strength is IPTV (subscription required). Formuler boxes have built in IPTV software called Mytvonline2 with EPG and PVR recording and scheduling. They also receive frequent OTA firmware updates from the manufacturer.
The Formuler Z Alpha is a lightweight version of the Z8. It runs the exact same software as the Z8 with Mytvonline2 etc. Its compact size makes it ideal to carry while travelling, or to use on a secondary TV in your house!
The other model we carry is the Beelink GT King box. It is also a great box, with a little more RAM and hardware space. Great for all of your needs, also a little more suitable for playing games on if that’s something you’re interested in.
Q: How do Android boxes work?
A: Android boxes connect to your TV with an HDMI cable, and to your internet connection via Ethernet cable or through WIFI.
Ideally an internet speed of 10 MBps or more is best. 5 Mbps will work but you may have to stick to lower quality streams. You can test your speed at www.speedtest.net or www.fast.com
Q: What exactly does your programming include?
A: Our boxes come with Kodi 17.6 (with our custom build installed), all of the latest standalone movie and tv show apps, free NHL game app, Mobdro (live tv), Google Playstore, Netflix, Youtube etc. Our boxes also come setup and ready for IPTV (subscription required).
Q: Can I watch Live TV and Sports?
A: Yes! There are thousands of live tv and sports channels available from Canada, US, UK and around the world! Lots of channels are available for free, but the quality and reliabilty of free tv is not great. Most people who want live tv and sports opt for the IPTV subscription route. With the subscription you get every major sporting event on the planet, plus thousands of network channels with a full TV Guide.
Q: Can I watch Movies and TV Shows on demand?
You can watch basically any movie and TV show on the planet in HD, on demand whenever you want. All TV Shows are up to date with the latest seasons and episodes!
Q: How do I watch ACESTREAM links in Kodi?
A: Before you can watch an ACESTREAM link, you must first have the Acestream Engine running in the background. Click on the Acestream Engine from the under the PROGRAMS menu in Kodi. Wait for the Acestream engine to start up. Once you get to the login screen it is ready to go. There is no need to sign in. Hit the 'ESC' button on the keyboard remote or the Back button on the basic remote twice to return to Kodi. Now you can go to your Acestream link you want to watch and click on it. The Acestream engine will continue to run in the background until your box is rebooted.
Q: The audio is out of sync, how do I fix this?
A: If the voices aren't matching up to the audio of the stream you're watching in Kodi do the following. Hit OK on the remote to bring up the control panel. Click on the Audio Settings button (little speaker icon). Click on Audio offset and adjust it until the voices match up. Click the Back button on the remote to clear the control panel screens.
Q: How do I adjust the screen size when watching live channels and the picture doesn't fit the screen properly?
A: Some channels come through in 4:3 aspect ratio and will display scrunched up on your screen. To change the video settings while watching a tv channel press the OK button on the remote to bring up the control panel. Scroll over to the icon that looks like an eye and click on it. Scroll down to View mode and click on it until the screen looks right. 16:9 Stretch or Wide Zoom usually will look the best. Press the return (back) button on the remote to get out of this screen, and again to clear the control panel from the screen. If you have a keyboard remote, just press the Z button to adjust the aspect ratio.
Q: My screen in Kodi is getting cut off at the top or bottom, how do I calibrate the screen?

You can also adjust the screen size in Kodi. Navigate to the SYSTEM menu tab and click on it. Scroll down the list and click on System. Click on Video Calibration on the right hand side of the screen. Adjust the top left blue arrow until it is completely visible in the top left corner of your screen and click OK. Now adjust the bottom right arrow the same way and hit ok. Adjust where the subtitles will display and hit OK. Now adjust the rectangle until it is perfectly square, and hit OK. Exit back to Kodi's home screen and the screen should now display correctly.
Q: How do I check for updates for your Kodi build?
A: You can see when the latest update was released scrolling across the bottom of the screen in Kodi in our RSS News feed. It’s important to keep the Kodi build up to date to keep everything running smoothly. As new add-ons are released and are proven to be stable, we will include them in the updates. If an add-on that is installed is discontinued or just stops working, it will be removed with the updates. The updates also fix any bugs or problems that pop up from time to time. We send out updates at least once per month. See below for instructions on how to update the KODI build.
