    My T8 AML3s is connected wirelessly to my router in another room. When I test the speed on my iPad sat next to the T8 I get 50+ meg however when I use one of the speed testers in the Apps to test the speed to the T8 it shows less than 1 meg. And when I test the network in Systems info it shows “busy” rather than connected. can’t move the router any closer.
    Is there anything I can do to improve wifi? Would setting up the T8 own hot spot help? Under settings “more” or shoul I just buy Powerline adaptor?

    Thanks
    Keith

    1. Entertainment Box

      Hi, although you have compared the iPad to the T8V3s with WIFI range they have different network/module components so they are different altogether. A Powerline adapter would help increase the WIFI range so try that and remember that you normally have up to 14 meters range (excluding walls, e.t.c).

      Thank you.

    Hi,

    Just reading advice on OTA updater but my box sticker says T8-AML-V3, not V3S. Bought it when just released but don’t want to unnecessarily ruin it by using the OTA update app! Do I need to anything at all? Never updated the OTA app but box working well generally!

    Cheers!

    1. Entertainment Box

      Hi, the OTA updater will download updates specifically for the device which you are using. If there are any available updates in the OTA feel free to use them so you can get the latest software from Entertainmentbox and keep your device optimised. I hope that was helpful,

      Thank you.

  3. [email protected]

    I have just used OTA updater on my T8 v3s purchased from yourselves when finished it had removed all my add ons. went back to blue start up background,had to download all my add ons again, is this normal or is there a way to use the ota updater without losing all your add ons. I did the update as described in your help video. Thanks Ian

    1. Liam

      Hi Ian, the OTA updater is a firmware update for your system & wipes all your current data before installing the new firmware & pre-installed apps. When running the OTA you get the options to choose wipe cache &/or data as mentioned in the guide above at step 3, but i’d recommend selecting both as the guide states so you start with a clean update.

  4. Paul

    After downloading the OTA and selecting to wipe data & cache, it boots to recovery screen and does nothing 🙁

    1. Liam

      Hi Paul, if this is your 1st time running the OTA insert an SD card in to the device 1st before running it, after you have run the update you will no longer need to insert an SD card for future updates, make sure your SD card is formatted to Fat 32 or NTFS format before you attempt the update, please note some members have had more success formating the SD card to NTFS while others have managed fine using Fat 32.

  5. iancom

    I couldn’t flash the image with a fat32 formatted SD card so I formatted it to NTFS and it worked fine, might help someone.

    1. Entertainment Box

      Thank you for kind feedback, all the best.

  6. Patty Daigle

    I got 6 boxes from you 5 are great I have one box that will only down load at 1my others are going 80 I used a sd card to put the new firmware on all 6 please help me .I got them on the march 10

    1. Entertainment Box

      Hello Patty, try flashing the firmware and that should sort the issue out but if not just contact our support team if you are in warranty and we will assist you further.

      Thank you.

  7. Mark

    I’ve just updated my firmware for my v3s and only ticked the wipe cache and not the wipe data does this make any difference to the update

  8. Mark

    Hi,updated my v3s with the latest firmware but only ticked the wipe cache and not the wipe data does this any difference the update.

    1. Entertainment Box

      Hello Mark, the difference is that you will still have your previous files saved on your device if you only wiped cache and Wiping data will clear everything before flashing the firmware.

      Thank you.

  9. Steve H

    Just seen that there is a Rom update available. How can I see what changes/fixes are included. Is there a changelog?

    Steve

    1. Entertainment Box

      Hello Steve, you will see the changes/fixes in the Changelog while downloading your firmware.

      Thank you.

  10. Brian Carter

    Hi, Just updated my T8-AML-V3S to March 6th firmware & can no longer access Settings from the Home screen, I have to open Apps & access Settings from there. How can I get the Settings Icon to work again from the Home Screen?
    Thanks

    1. Entertainment Box

      Hello Mr Carter, do another OTA and the settings will be back.

      Thank you.
