quite right.

alto astro FAQ says below, windows does not work.

in general, mobile devices work, no problem.

pc/laptop windows - dun work.

generic android boxes - some work, some don't, depends on firmware.

androidtv boxes, some work, some don't.

androidtv tv - works.

so, choose a proven device to use!

astrogo is very touchy about devices.

read tech details... so many ifs and buts... biggrin.gif

yes, for wc channels, it goes from HD to SD in 30 secs, very poor - for certain devices.

but it's fine for phones and tablets.

Same problem. My PC (Win 10) and Laptop (Win 8) cannot play. Device not register and DRM Engine Error. Contact Astro, they ask to switch using 5th device. Successfully switched using 5th device, a phone.  However when switch back to PC, same problem.

Maybe its true Astro go not support Windows anymore eh?

few people got it to work on PC.
same with unifi play tv.

think they purposely built the app this way to discourage use on PC and TV's.
encourage only phones and tablets.
still, some clever people manage to get round it...

sorry, may i know if using astro go on the desktop is counted towards the 4 devices per account quota?
*
for now, i think they haven't consolidating the counting rules for all devices, all versions.
new app, 4 is max for android devices, but i can still use on pc... and old version on smart tv... total 6.
however, can expect it to change once all the teething issues resolved, old version shut down.

can apple 4k tv box can install astro on the go?

if it is in the appstore, should work.

Seem like yes. I uninstall the astro extension also can view.
But have other problem maybe unrelated.
When watch OnDemand Drama, such as Princess Agents, I click SEE ALL to watch earlier episode, but all jump to last episode 58.
Anyone can help verify?

Using computer PC.

it detects HDMI connection to tv, blocks it.

however, if yr tv has chromecast, u can use laptop chrome to cast to TV.
