Hi

I wonder if your streaming breaks in the evening ? Seems to be fine in the afternoon.
Thanks.

what's wrong with letting others people know about the app you used and the channels you watched?

if you revealed them, it is easier for xiaofan or other people to help you to troubleshoot.

This was my original question. I wonder if you stream breaks in the evening <===. Thanks.

I do not use Kodi myself but I tried other Streaming live TV apps and they are okay in the evening.

Kodi is a big software and it depends on various addons to function per your needs. So most likely it is related to the app (Kodi addon) in this case.

The streaming does not come from Kodi. Here's what I've learnt. If I use the built-in kodi player, the picture will not fit the old CRT TV. I have to use an external MX Player to play. Kodi just handover the stream to MX Player. So what's so different here ? MX Player can make use of the software instead of hardware to decode. Because of that, I can stretch to fit my old CRT TV.


I guess if you use the built-in player, then you can stay kodi is the streaming client.

I use the YouTube add-on to watch YouTube on the TV... guess why. Read the previous post. Because the built-in YouTube player cannot stretch to fit my screen. Using Kodi->MX Player can.

Kodi is also available under Windows (or Mac or Linux) so you can try to do the same thing with your PC to see if if that makes any differences.

And run SpeedTest in your PC/Mac in different time to see if your internet speed is stable or not in the first place. Run speedtest in your Android TV box as well .

I use a wireless USB/Keyboard combo. Or use an air mouse.

For boxes, scroll back and there are many discussions.

If you are inpatient, get Mi Box or Mi Box S. If you want to pay more, get Nvidia Shield TV. They run official Android TV certified by Google and have 4K Chromecast function build-in. They also support Netflix 4K.

If you are low on budget (S$40-50), get Tanix TX3 Mini or TX3 Max, 2GB/16GB version.

Edit to Add: if you need paid subscription apps TVB Anywhere or StarHub Go, do not buy Mi Box, Mi Box S and Nvidia Shield TV. End of edit.

You can buy from Lazada/Shopee.

For apps go to Facebook group “New Box TV SG”.

If you already have an android TV box or you already have Chromecast then you can just download adrama app from the app store. It look like this:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...o.adrama&hl=en

You can download on your phone then cast to your chromecast on your TV.

This is one app. There are many apps in the Facebook group, some available from Google Play Store but some not available. Even for those available from the app store like rss player, you may need to know the tricks to make it useful.

I have a quick overview for Chinese Entertainment apps for Android phones, which will mostly work for Android TV boxes.

I do not use Kodi myself and you can ask in the Facebook group. Or someone else here can help you.

One reference from Kodi Wiki for your reference and I remember I have tried it once and it worked.
https://kodi.wiki/view/Add-on:IPTV_Simple_Client

I prefer to use simpler apps than Kodi.
