Eventually Im going to add an extra page to the website with instructions on how to disable certain features on newer routers which are causing more and more problems for streaming boxes such as ours, all the major internet providers seem to ship their routers out with software on them that’s supposed to help you but actually makes your android box run very badly – if you find that for instance “Movie HD” app wont connect or when in Kodi using genesis addon or phoenix addon you hardly have any choices from where to watch from then this is more than likely the problem. Its usually only a case of logging in to to your online internet account and turning off the setting (unticking a box in most cases) TalkTalk/BT/SKY routers seem to be the worst culprits.
TalkTalk – Disable “Homesafe” homesafe is a nightmare and blocks loads of sites (even the national lottery one as its deemed “gambling”!) read more by clicking HERE
BT – Disable the parental controls, if left turned on then your box will not work very over wifi (seem ok on ethernet though which is weird) read more by clicking HERE
SKY – Disable “Sky Shield” If you have Sky you will need to disable your Sky Shield as it really messes stuff up! Click HERE
EE – This one isnt as bad and doesnt seem to cause as many issues but if you do think its causing problems then click HERE
Virgin – If you have Virgin internet you will need to disable your virus safe from your My Virgin Account or you will be limited to what you can view click HERE
if your box is running fine then just ignore all this but I’ve been surprised how many users are sitting at home with next to nothing working on their xbmcplayer boxes thinking its just down to the links not working etc when in fact its a 5 min job to turn off a setting and have the box all singing and dancing
