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.
Hi Choo, but the mibox remote control does not have a number pad. Any way to control w a number pad remote if i buy a mibox?

all apps certified for android tv os do not use number pad. They only need d-pad, ok and back buttons.

if you die die must use number pad, you can connect a bluetooth keypad or an airmouse with keypad. you can also use remote control android tv app on handphone that comes with number keys.

Number pads work only if the app developer programmed it.

Got a mibox, problem solved. Dpad is easier to use than number pad.

Else get miotv or starhub settop box. Their number pad should work.

Get the Mi Box S or Chromecast dongle and then cast from mobile phone.

It is easy to switch channel from the mobile phone.

I just tried again with my first gen Chromecast dongle, it works very well. Very easy to switch channel for SingTel TV Go, including using the channel number like 502.

My parents in law also do not understand English, but it is okay once you write down the step by step instructions clearly. For example, you can take screenshots and circle the area to click. Print it out.

Of course if you really want to make it easy, get SingTel TV for them. You can use SingTel TV Go then...

Hi Xiaofan, I faced a problem today on my android box. My h96 max x2 was not able to use Singtel TV go. And my toggle live TV. And other app that has live TV for sg local channel all cant watch. I can watch channel from overseas except sg. It will keep spinning when i click any SG channel. My PC and phone was still able to watch singtel tv go and toggle. Do u have any idea what could be preventing my android box from watching.

Maybe just a temporary network thingy related to SingTel Fibre broadband.

But again H96 Max X2 is not officially supported by SingTel TV Go so you are on your own.
