oh. there's no 4K on local Netflix?
thinking whether to get the Shield TV from Amazon - there's a sale now

I do not use Netflix myself but sure there will be 4K in local Netflix.

It is just the VPN speed may limit the possibility of 4K Streaming from US version of Netflix.

thinking of getting this to cut the cord
- does the Google Assistant work well?
- does StarHub Go and TVB Anywhere work well? (parents want to keep the VV Drama)
- I just need to get the HDhomerun to act as tuner for local shows?

realised my TV can't access local channels unless I get antenna :/

I do not think so. It is a HW device, network TV tuner for you to watch local free-to-air TV like CH5/CH8/CNA/etc.

eh sorry, so using the hdhomerun app, i will be able to see foreign channels (free) via the HW and box?

No ideas why you get this conclusions from what I said. I said free-to-air Local channels like CH5/CH8/CNA/etc...

Anyway I do not have this Homerun stuff and I do not know if they offer foreign channels or not.

Still for apps, go to local Facebook group “New TV Box SG” to get more useful information and tips.

really? a nvidia box just for starhub go? :s13:

rather than using the one StarHub is trying to sell I suppose.
will be using it for Netflix/Spotify/Hulu/Amazon Prime too I suppose (to offload the SmartTV from them...) and GeForceNow...

- but yes StarHub Go was one of the main things

I can only guess StarHub has two versions of StarHub Go app, one for normal mobile version of Android OS and one for the Android TV OS (StarHub Go Streaming Box runs service provider version of Android TV).

The Android TV version is probably tied to the Go Streaming Box and it probably checks the underlying OS is Android TV. If not it will quit. If yes it is running Android TV, it will check if it is the StarHub Box, if not it will quit.

The mobile version you are trying to sideload will probably do the same thing, if the os is mobile version of Android, it will proceed. If the underlying OS is Android TV, it will quit.

Just my guess.

https://www.tvbanywhere.com.sg/faq.html

It mentions that TV boxes are not supported.
Looks like they detect the underlying OS and block official Android TV OS.

Take note TVB offers streaming box in Hong Kong and not so sure if this blocking has something to do with that.

im facing an issue that when i switch apps out of Kodi ie alt tab out of Kodi when Im halfway watching a video, the video closes by itself (not Kodi but just the video that closes), after switching back. May I know how do I ensure that the videos do not close just because I alt tab? thanks.
