      wh.4ere did you get the link for ebmc 4.4 from? you can go to appstore and download ebox app and you will find working app the one you have I think was the first release that needed settings tweaked

    there just been some minor teething problems with the EBMC due to trying to overcompensate as in service to the user by making the skin confluence by default so if just upgraded from Jarvis you will feel comfortable navigating around the EBMC this is being looked at and will be rectified ASAP.
