The SilenceRom, Beast are probably the most complex wizards built so far. There are several more less complex like Husham, Wookie, ChrisBwizard, others , Anyone who is new to all this needs to get one of these, put it on a pc or tablet, notebook, not on the main system yet. Now start poking around, move something you don't like on the home page, now can you bring it back? These wizards are not rocket science, anyone with a little time, patience and willingness to make mistakes will find these the best classroom you could possible join! They work on the Q, a windows PC with Kodi, a PC with Openelec, any android product using Codi and in many cases Openelec. They all seem to have some quirks, I would certainly get rid of with the possible exception of the wizard put together by East Coast gBox, In addition to attractive graphics, the selections I've seen on the submenu's are logically placed, Something some of the others forgot about!!

Just my opinion......

See what happens when you don't proof read, twice? Did anyone catch that "C" that does not belong?



My shame.... :'(

Would there be any benefit using the non-stable/Alpha custom H/W accelerated Kodi that comes on the unit versus SPMC found in the play store that is using a stable XBMC with H/W acceleration?
1) Yes. Also the updater, will be updatable via the Play store soon, once the redesign/recreate is complete
2) Up to the community to find an exploit ;)
3) Our MediaCenter is currently based off of beta3 of kodi (there is a version check popup message that claims it's alpha3, that's not the case however). Our MediaCenter is developed tailored to Amlogic devices, specifically our S802 - the G-Box Q. Our MediaCenter also will be going live on the play store soon

No one can answer your question if we don't know what they are.

The quick answer is, first spend time watching YouTube articles. There are dozens and dozens of how-to's. Use stop-rewind-replay to go over it until you understand it. I learned a lot doing that.

Second, go to Matricom ' Support page if you have a technical problem. I found they are more helpful than reading the manual that comes preloaded on the Q

I'm new to this box that I bought with very little research. I also bought a Blaze Key. My question is simple. I'd like to know more movie apps. I currently only have Show Box and I have yet to watch a movie in anything higher than 720p. I'd like more movie apps and tv show apps that work the best and offer a bigger selection. Thanks in advance.

Go to Chrome and google Megabox Hd, Movie HD, Cartoon Hd. Download the apps using Chrome . You will find them in your downloads . Install from there.
You should also set up Kodi with Fusion and you will get plenty of what you are looking for.

Enjoy

I have a G box Q 16.1 Jarvis KODI set up. I can't get PLUTO.TV I have reached out to everyone. System says check for log for errors.
I did the download and the pluto is on the screen but every time I open a channel it gives me a screen error message ?
I'm stumped what the hek is wrong I keep getting the run around from Pluto and Kodi.
Is there anybody out there that would like to help me get pluto tv back on my Kodi working. This sucks :o
I have fusion, and Super repo repository's .
Please help me figure this out I have been trying to get my pluto tv on the Kodi for 6 months with no luck
I have wiped the system. downloaded, you name it. Is there a step I have missed or can a support person help.
I been told so many different things.
Is this really that confusing ????

From the android settings in one of the audio settings I remember seeing the option to switch from audio out:optical or HDMI...mine was on optical already but I did notice you could switch it.
