All boxes go through a basic testing before they ship.
Our boxes currently only run XBMC to ensure the highest level of speed and compatability. Unfortunately, XBMC does not include an internet browser at the moment.
Upgrades will be added if needed in the future.
HBO Go, Amazon and a few other apps have DRM. This means there is exrtra security that XBMC cannot play. Airplay still works very well with most audio and video apps.
If an update becomes available to jailbrake your device to bypass drm, I will update this faq with that information.
The Taffy Media Center box is the equivelent of having a jailbroken Apple TV with XBMC. Though, this box does not need to be jailbroken because it boots to and only runs XBMC to ensure maximum speed and compatability.
You can add plugins and repositories just like in other XBMC environments. With the plugin package installed, many of the most popular plugins and repositories come installed. This includes automatic updating of plugins with repositories and the fusion installer.
With 8+ year experience using XBMC, we have set up these boxes as plug and play friendly as possible. It is recommended to buy the box with plugins pre-installed for maximum ease of use.
Sometimes the boxes communicate differently with each TV depending on the connections. Please try the following.
• Disconnect Everything From the Box.
• Connect HDMI Cable.
• Make sure the tv is on and set to correct input.
• Connect the power.
• Wait for up to 3-5 minutes while it configures itself.
From the home screen go to
Settings -> System -> Internet Access
On the top the page to the right, you should see what is currently connected or not connected. Click on that and it should bring up a screen with your available connections. Choose one and enter a password if needed.
