my friend want to let go a MINIX NEO X8. I m thinking to get it for ASTRO ON THE GO.
But he is not sure if the device have been rooted.

He only show me:

Firmware: KOT49H.20170119 release-keys
Rom: 3.10.33
root@user-desktop#1

Stock Minix firmware are never rooted. If you like the box and it serves your other needs. Just flash the latest stock firmware and sure it's unrooted.

Flash stock and hope it works.. The Neo X8 is a four year old device. Can't say if those apps will work till you try em.. Flash stock.

world cup 2018 starts june 14.

with sports pack, the 64 matches are on special channels 823 and 824 - labeled russia 2018 1 and 2 under sports category in astrogo.

W/o sports pack or non astro users, astrogo can still watch 22 out of 64 matches for free on astro arena.

do u mean live sports channels, for world cup?

u brought up an old post.

astrogo is probably the best one at this time - reliable and in 720p HD (but maybe low bit rate).

other alternatives - u can try livenet tv, red box, freeflix.

google to find the apk's.

those apps have some of the channels that should be broadcasting world cup 2018; quality/reliability may vary.

using another box.

it does hang sometimes but usually not.

could be yr internet speed too low or unstable.


there is another problem currently...

WC2018 channels 823, 824... they should be in HD but drop to SD within 30 secs.

this does not happen to other HD channels incl arena and assp1-4.

and it only happens with boxes or androidtv tv, not phones and tablets.

maybe astro now has a way to throttle devices that they don't like...

100Mbps is too slow? maybe i should consider 1Gbps ya. :-p

anyway...i think their app itself is very buggy.

I think this.. Especially if it only happens with boxes.. That rules out server issues. Asterruk being proactive. hmm.gif

Speed is more than sufficient.. I'm assuming you are wired and box has access to full internet speeds..? If so, most likely the app itself is the culprit.

I had been testing for a week now with 3 devices.

It is disappointing, esp for those who paid for the passes.

I do not know the diff in bitrate required between mobile devices vs boxes.

Maybe they sold too many passes, the boxes cant get sufficient bitrate.

Right now, 824 seems ok in hd while 823 still sucks in sd.

Anyway, i got something better now, no need for this asgo.


update:

channel 823 portugal-morocco match... in 540/576, an improvement from 240/360 last few days.

maybe people stopped buying their passes, less users...

IKR.. By right, they shouldn't discriminate between devices. But business is business I guess. So I can't blame them for protecting their turf.

Its either they r so clever to be able to discriminate or its simply overload due to oversold passes.

Some people are cheesed off after buying the passes.

But... there are always alternatives.

The fans have already found a way to get excellent streams!

Firstly.. Don't think I even know any or heard of a forummer using an Android powered projector.. Much less AOTG..an app that's notoriously picky on which devices it runs and how it runs on them.
