Common Troubleshooting

 

Buffering

 

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:

  1. The speeds do not match

  2. The speeds do match

 

Speeds do not 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.

 

Speeds do match

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.

Speeds

Down Stream (In Megabits Per Second)

SD Minimum                         

2Mbps

SD recommended

5Mbps

HD Minimum

5Mbps

HD recommended

10Mbps

 

Servers

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

 

Miracast is a protocol for mirroring one device to another. In this case, all our units 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 unit. If prompted, press allow for the device to connect. Once the devie

Note: Samsung's Allshare is not a compatible miracast stream with the unit.

 

 

No Sound

 

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

  1. Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly

  2. Make sure Volume is up

  3. Check volume on another device

Steps to fix Android Sound

  1. Verify that the Volume is up on both devices

  2. Make sure the HDMI cable is seated correctly

  3. Power off both devices

  4. Verify PCM is checked under Audio Settings

  5. 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

  1. Follow the steps for the Android Sound

  2. From the System > Settings > System > Audio Output:

    1. Make sure the Speaker configuration matches.

    2. Make sure "Output stereo to all speakers" is not checked.

 

 

S/PDIF

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.
