Hey..unfortunately, I don't have the box with me anymore... I do remember the Astro Go app launched fine but i couldn't test further because i don't have an Astro sub. So could work fine.. UnifiTV app kept crashing during my tests.. Probably got an update since then to fix it.. Again, i can't speak for now.. Perhaps Scissorshand can shed more light on these 2 issues?  sweat.gif

Recently got a new Sony X90j, hooked up the box using Ugreen hdmi 2.1 8K directly to the TV, connected TV via coaxial to my old avr. I noticed ie on netflix, say korean drama My Name, the box indicated 4K HDR while the same time when using Netflix directly fro the TV, it shows Dolby Vision.

Hence did you encounter the same when you tested on your 4k TV?

Ah... Firstly, conglats on the new TV set.. thumbup.gif .. And yeah, such is normal. The box itself (unlike say the Nvidia Shield) can't process Netflix DV/DA and thus maxes out at 4K HDR10. Your beasty X90J on the other hand does support Dolby VisionĀ® and Dolby AtmosĀ® and the Netflix app can tap into those. Since you already have a decent TV and the TV app almost always (99.99%) outperforms an external TV box especially where Netflix is concerned. Best to use the TV app instead for Netflix, YouTube and other native TV apps for viewing their content. The app will work best on the TV, colors will be more accurate too as all the processing is done natively on and by the TV, versus receiving video signals off the box and trying to upscale/refine the visuals to match the TV's display.
