Strange issue, looks like heng/sway that it doesnt work at your place.

Sell off @ carousell for cheap and buy EVpad. Just finger cross it works for the new buyer place.

Were you using your power adaptor when you were at the shop? If not, then the problem is with your adaptor.

A new $5 adaptor might solve your problem

You install pinyin keyboard or any other chinese input app.

However i dont recommend using chinese keyboard because you need to enter 3-4 letters to form a character.

If you are using english keyboard, you only need to enter one char for each chinese character .

All ISPs block Ubox UBTV. It is by High Court order.

The ISPs are just going thru the motion, they are not actively blocking UB.

What they do is to enter UB's server address in their DNS server's blacklist. There are better ways to block but they are not using them.

If UB changes its server address or the users select not to use ISP's DNS, the 'block' is nonexistence.

For some ISPs, there isn't any block if using mobile data, the reason is obvious.

Ubox without UBTV and UBVOD, from Taiwan, because of the new laws banning preloaded box


The above is from Ubox Facebook page.

The comment is interesting, "現在沒人敢跟500000挑戰", i.e., nobody wants to challenge 500K New Taiwan Dollar.

Still have ubtv and ubvod. They are not in the box when sold. But they tell the buyer where to download.

This is just to fool tw's authority.

Ubtv works on boxes with a range of mac address. These so called empty boxes are from ub so it will run ubtv.

My evpad 3 on allwinner soc dont seem to have hdmi cec support. I have another box running amlogic 905x and it supports hdmi cec. So it might be a chipset/firmware/kernal thing. Which means ubox might likely also not support hdmi cec since their newest models also run on allwinner soc.

Due to the recent court ruling in taiwan banning sale of "pre-loaded" boxes, unblock has started selling "clean-slate" boxes in the taiwan market. These boxes do not come pre-installed with any 3rd party apps or app market. Instead, all proprietary app apks are hosted on an external site and buyers are provided with instructions on where to download and side load them into the box. Evpad and other brand boxes will follow suit to "comply" with the rules for taiwan market.

Again, this goes to show even with laws in place, manufacturers and sellers will always find loopholes or ways to go around the rules.

Yes but then the less tech savvy users will not buy the boxes. And take note providing the instructions or teach the methods to sideload those apps are also considered to be illegal in Taiwan now.

Technical savvy users can always find ways if they want to use the boxes.
