That is Netflix issue, Netflix is like 50% lower volume than others channel in any platform and device.

I tested on LG TV, Samsung TV, Nvidia Shield TV Pro, Chromecast with Google TV and also Apple TV 4K box.
*
This test, was it via HDMI ARC/SPDIF/TOSLINK Dolby Digital 5.1 or just standard stereo?

HDMI ARC for TV box, for TV apps is direct from TV apps but HDMI output to soundbar. For TV speaker itself also same volume very low than usual. It is like that since day one Netflix official available in Malaysia. That time I am using Panasonic TV, so I added one more Panasonic TV apps Netflix also very low volume. 😅

Hmm... i think you mean "Bookmark", Ultra box does not have any record anymore. Basically everytime you play a movie, it is stream to your set top box. or devices.

Hmm... hmm.gif what is the message shown when it cannot play?
The reason I can think of is maybe the movie is taken of their content library and no longer accessible.
Or maybe you package does not include the say channel thus not able to access the content despite able to search in the content library.

Hi , I’ve encountered Astro unable to display video / chk HDCP setting , connection message this morning.
Tried google , on/off , reconnect HDMI cable doesn’t work.
The thing is all those free channel (101,103…etc) can be viewed but not the rest. So not sure if cable is the problem

What box are you using now? How long you've been using that box already?
You tried power off and then power on the Astro box as well?

Did you connect to any HDMI switcher or splitter or something?

Did try, but apparently having multiroom meant I had to mantain an account with at least RM100 monthly 😞

If just subscribing to their broadband, basically you are like subscribing to TM UniFi since it runs on TM fiber infrastructure. If only Astro broadband runs on TIME fiber, then it will be more reliable and probably a bit cheaper.

Yes and Astro is still a steal considering you only top up another RM10 for 50mbps than 89 for 30Mbps with unifi...

Astro = RM1.98 per mbps woth 50mbps package
Ubifi = RM2.96 per mbps with 30mbps package

Also unifi 30mbps upload speed is just 10mbps, astro is 20mbps.. Huge difference

My observation, all broadband packages are more or less the same among each other! The TM wholesale business model is in fact really ripping off the affordability.. I don't understand why the regulators keep focusing on wanting the ISPs to have better service differentiations when cost structure has limited room to reduce any further.

By looking at this, i believe 5G under DNB's SWN model will also kill off affordability ..

In the long run, the users are the one who is losing out!

If I'm not mistaken, the RM19.99/month is a "limited time promo"... But who knows their "limited time promo" might end up become permanent lol... sweat.gif
