nice.. can search back my old hypptv.
btw, can we use 2 stb in same house?
*
Yes you can provided the 2nd unit STB has a valid user id and password from another Unifi Account.
You cannot use the same user id and password for both STBs.

Anyone having the issue where you are subscribed to Aneka Plus Pack?
I hardly open my unifi TV.

From bill received, i realise i am subscribed to Aneka Plus package...
*
Were you subscribed to Aneka package previously?
If YES, it was auto upgraded.
If NO, then you have to check with TM.

So TM will not provide the STB Box, what is the best way to watch Unifi TV on your TV? You can only install on phone and desktop (only on IE), and not on android box.
*
Get a tablet or smartphone that has a HDMI port.

Sure this is possible but not practical. You normally sit on couch which is quite far from your TV. Cable is messy and difficult for you to change channel without remote.
I hope TM can explain why they stop provide STB box cause most people still use TV to watch live channel. Mobile apps is good but as an alternative for people watch live tv on the move.
*
Lol. That was one alternative way to watch on the tv.
Do you mean that even when you subscribe to Ultimate pack, they also don’t supply the STB anymore?
Unifi PlayTv doesn’t get to watch all the channels as the STB.

Hello guys,

I need some advice on why the white HyppTV STB suddenly cannot get the IP address. Other devices have no issues to connect to the internet. Attached are some screenshots on the STB network tests.

The WIFI is ON and LAN is connected to port 4 on the D-LINK (Model Name: DIR-842) router. I tried an old STB from Streamyx days and it can get the IP but had issues on configuring the username/password. TM says need to rebind so cannot use the old STB. I have restarted all devices. TM want to charge Rm53 for sending someone over.

Anything I can do for this STB to get the IP address ? Thank you.

Update: Fixed by changing a new STB.
*
Of late I also encountered this problem.
I also noticed this icon at the bottom right corner of the tv.
Attached Image

Now I have to wait for about 80 seconds after I start up the STB.
After the 80 seconds wait, everything is back to normal.
Not sure what is the cause.

The STB needs some time to start-up the system. Just wait for the yellow icon with the "!" symbol to disappear before launching the live-TV mode.  smile.gif
*
Earlier (before July 2019) I don't have to wait. Switch ON the STB, then switch ON the tv. On the STB remote, press OK and then press Exit, can change channel immediately.
Now have to wait for the Yellow icon to disappear then only can press OK and Exit.

Ya... like that for very long time already... Already mentioned few times in this thread since long ago...
Some channels long ago is in HD but suddenly become SD while channel name still have "HD" at the back.
*
Once I also noticed some of the channels were not in full HD.
No matter what settings I used, still cannot get full HD.
Then I noticed the STB was not connected in 1080p when it boot up.
It was booted up with 576i only.

Have to report to TM on the issue.
Don't know what they did, the STB booted up with 1080p.

Press home button to exit Unifi TV app, then go Settings.
There, go to Display and change the resolution settings.

Indeed, not all channels are in HD on unifi TV. But channels like Fox Movies should be in HD...

Also, on the menus of Unifi TV app (as shown as your photo attached), go to settings (gear icon), then change the "Aspect ratio" setting to 16:9.
*
Tried all the settings on the resolution part. Nothing works.
It was TM side. They changed something on their side.

In addition, to further complicate things and cause more framerate mismatch, there are movies and dramas filmed in 24FPS. This is probably why some movies on 201 and some dramas on 211 look even more jerky. Probably undergone double conversion, 24p -> 60i -> 50i, so messed up already.
Mine is not STB issue, the STB is outputting 1080i50 all the time for sure and only those several channels are in SD. Other HD channels are in good HD quality. So the problem is in TM's encoding of the channel. The channels have problem in the playTV app as well and you can notice that even the LPF logo is in wrong aspect ratio proving that TM is handling those HD channels as SD 4:3 channels instead of HD 16:9.

Long ago when I complained to TM, they asked me restart STB and check HDMI cable etc and want send people to come check but no one ever came so I gave up and posted here.

Can you list down the HD channels that went to SD?

The list is in this thread but I haven't check recently so I don't know if there are any more changes. Someone mentioned some movie channels became SD recently in the other thread too.

Edit: post 527 has links to the lists in red colour.
Edit2: additional channels that might be facing same issue: https://forum.lowyat.net/index.php?showtopi...post&p=94344433

Yes, you are correct. Some of the HD channels are not HD anymore.

I think it's free if you renew the 12 months Unifi TV's contract. This STB has higher performance compared to the previous white one. New features (including apps (Netflix & Dimsum), DVR, 4K, Dolby Digital and new channels) are expectedly integrated into the new STB.  smile.gif

Thanks for your reply.
Looking forward to its launch.

Unifi TV is 1 year contract. You could terminate it after that.

I did mine couple weeks ago and keep my Unifi broadband only.

You could do it online, but better to do it at TM Point office to avoid any confusion.

This is good news to many subscribers who don't watch Unifi Tv.

The new hypp TV interface on the white set top box is so difficult to navigate. Gone is the feature where I can select the channel from a list of tiles. It has become so cumbersome that I may abandon using it permanently.

I always use the Guide button to see the programs on all the channels.
