QUICK START GUIDE
Thank you for purchasing the new Internet Streaming Device from the GBoxguy. This guide is intended as a quick start-up instruction reference for your new device:
Starting and Shutting Down:
Please plug in all of your accessories before starting the device, starting with your HDMI cable. External devices are hot-swappable (can be plugged and unplugged while Android is running). However, it’s preferable to plug these devices in before starting the system. When all accessories and HDMI/video out are plugged in the power adapter to the unit. It will boot automatically.
To shut down the device, please be sure that you use the remote’s power button after you have exited any running apps (especially Kodi). It is important to remember that your device is a computer. Like any computer, it should be shut down properly. After the unit has been shut down with the remote you may unplug and move the device to a different location if needed.
Connecting to the Internet:
The preferable method of connecting your device is via the ethernet port for High Definition(HD) streaming While the device is capable of streaming with 6mbps in close proximity, it’s important to realize that the further away you are from your WI-Fi access point, the slower your Wi-Fi connection throughout will be. Full bar connectivity results in 20+Mbps using Wi-Fi, however losing one (1) bar drops this to approximately 5Mbps, which is sufficient for most HD content. Large files and streams will have buffering issues if the connection is not strong enough- a possible solution is to connect via ethernet or move the device closer to your wireless access point.
To connect to the internet via Wi-Fi:
From the main page (Blue Beach scene page in Nova Launcher), click on “Q” settings, then enable WiFi by clicking Wi-Fi. Select your access point and enter your Wi-Fi password (if required).
To connect to the Internet via Ethernet:
From the main page (Blue Beach scene page in Nova Launcher), click on the “Q” settings, then enable ethernet by clicking the ethernet box. The connection will negotiate with your router using DHCP automatically. Advanced network configurations can be applied if necessary.
Your device is designed to update its firmware and base applications throughout the internet. When a new firmware update is released, you will be prompted with the option to install the new update.
