Download from the below Above
Place the Android APK App in an SD Card or USB Driver
Connect SD Card or USB Drive to your MX2
Go To Home Screen
Go To All Apps Section
Click App Installer
Select And Install the New XBMC
Open it and run for the first time
Once it's done allow it to sit for 3-5 minutes while all the Addons Update themselves
If You are experiencing Audio but no video in XBMC then you have the updated firmware 1.6 but XBMC needs to be updated also, this is only if you have updated to Firmware V 1.6.
Please take not this is a software issue not a firmware or hardware issue.
All you need to do is click the "OTA" app and you can scroll to the bottom where you see the XBMC icon, click on it to install the new version.
Make sure you uninstall previous version already install before installing the new one.
In order to reflash the MX2, the user needs a few things:
An SD Card
The latest Firmware V.1.1.6 click here to download
A toothpick, or something similar
The user will extract the latest firmware onto the SD card. So the user should have 3 files: mx2update.zip, factory_update_param.aml, and recovery.img. They will remove the SD card from their PC and insert it into their MX2. Power off the MX2 by unplugging it from the power source and then insert the toothpick into the A/V port onto the back of the MX2. Now plug the device back in and once the Matricom screen appears wait an additional 5 seconds and release the toothpick. It will now flash and will reboot once finished.
First and foremost, we need to isolate the causes for the slow buffering. This can be achieved by a quick speed test. Download SpeedTest from the Google Play Store and run the application. Once the results are in, navigate to http://speedtest.net on your PC and run the same test. Compare both results and follow the scenario below:
The speeds do not match
The speeds do match
If the speeds do not match, the common issue is how it's connected. If you are using WiFi, connect to the Ethernet port if possible and run the speed test again. This will allow us to isolate the WiFi as a problem. If the speeds improve, the product may have a faulty wireless card. Contact a support representative for more information.
If the speeds match, you need to have the appropriate internet speeds to be able to play certain content. Refer to the table below for more information on what is recommended for proper streaming.
Down Stream (In Megabits Per Second)
Another common issue is the servers are sometimes not operating at maximum potential. For instances, some 3rd party add-ons will be under heavy operating load and users will experience slow buffering. Isolate the add-on and perform a buffering test on your MX2. If you also have slow buffering, it's more than likely a sign that the server is experience high traffic. Remember that we have no control over 3rd party add-ons and so we will not have an ETA of a fix.
Miracast is a protocol for mirroring one device to another. In this case, the MX2 supports miracast for devices that support the miracast protocol. To enable miracast, open the Miracast application. Once it is opened, on the device you wish to connect choose the device name that matches the device name on the MX2. If prompted, press allow for the device to connect. Once the devie
Note: Samsung's Allshare is not a compatible miracast stream with the MX2.
If there is no sound on 1.1.6, it is good to verify that the correct audio settings are in place. Navigate to the MBox Settings > Advanced > Sound and make sure that "PCM" is the default.
Next it's good to isolate where the sound is not coming from. First, open up any android app to see if the sound works here. If the sound works in the Android system, we can isolate it to XBMC. If sound does not work, then it's a system wide issue. Preliminary Steps
Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly
Make sure Volume is up
Check volume on another device
Steps to fix Android Sound
Verify that the Volume is up on both devices
Make sure the HDMI cable is seated correctly
Power off both devices
Verify PCM is checked under Audio Settings
Test with an app
If this does not resolve the issue, a reflash is necessary in order to regain sound. If a reflash does not fix the issue, then a warranty claim must be made.
Steps to fix XBMC Sound
Follow the steps for the Android Sound
From the System > Settings > System > Audio Output:
Make sure the Speaker configuration matches.
Make sure "Output stereo to all speakers" is not checked.
The port is analog. It still sends the digital signal, but it's converted to an analog signal only as a means of transport. A coaxial rca cable is required for S/PDIF to function properly.
If the WiFi stops responding, there are two routes you can go:
Clear the Cache partition.
Reflash the box
Try the first option first! You can do this by the toothpick method with NO SD card inserted. Once at the recovery menu for the MX2, choose "Clear Cache Partition". This will flush the cache and should allow the user to maintain settings and jumpstart the WiFi.
