Which Android TV? Just follow the vendor guide? Usually you will need to pair the remote, connect to WiFi, log in to your Google account. Sometimes you may need to tune the Display resolution and Timezone settings.
SONY KD49X7500F. Bought at a fair last year and best denki told me only they can set up and paid them twice to come down to do it. And the apps dont work after a while. Only noticed this thread now and felt really stupid to pay them to come down to do it haha so wondering if i can get any advise here on how to do it.

If you want the best performance for local over the air TV, then get a DVB-T2 Tuner Box and an Antenna.

Toggle app can not be installed on Mi Box S. It does support Chromecast feature. However previously there were some reports of problems with the built-in Chromecast feature of Mi Box S. Not sure if the issue has been fixed from Toggle side or not.

I saw you asked in the Xiaomi TV box thread as well. Hopefully the owners of Mi Box S can chime in and confirm whether Toggle works or not with Mi Box S now.
There is a confirmation in the Mi Box thread that Toggle work fine now with the built in Chromecast function of Mi Box.

Sony Android TV is just download the app from the app store and can use straight away. TVB anywhere (must pay) is there and Adrama is there. Use it just like it is. Nothing much to set up.

Interesting. That is a good progress. So it may have more detection mechanisms other than the root check.

Make sure you are connecting to the same network as the SingTel TV Box.

I thought you already got Mi Box S and that is already good enough for SingTel TV Go.

Ok I did it... I was able to install and watch smoothly now. U will need magisk to use singtel tv... I totally remove magisk and supersu and root check was unroot and pass safetynet check but the singtel tv go still detect root. The only was to use is to use magisk to hide and it work well now. Problem is the remote has totally no impact on the app. It cannnot switch channel by number pad. Only can use mouse or air mouse to switch... and i cant exit the app after opening... I need to end the task myself to exit.. Nevertheless, i was able to watch smoothly using my air mouse to switch channel.... Anyone know how to map remote to mouse movement? I want to makae it easy for my parents...

most handphone apps work on mouse only.

singtel tv go works on android tv os, so if you want to make it easy for your parents, buy mibox s or an android TV.
