    Please, do not open other threads and ask for support if you have some issues with this Upgrade! Use this thread for all questions related to this Android 10 upgrade, issues and reports. Thank you.

    I have a request to all who have carried out the new upgrade.

    Please post your reports and questions after you have tested the box for several hours and restarted a few times. The quick posting immediately after something does not work for the moment, only unsettles others.

    Please take your time, restart the box few times and check all possible combinations. In most cases the issue will move by own. If not, report in this thread.

    Keep in mind, this is not only update, it is very big upgrade, with new OS and many fixes and new features. So, if big issues appear think about factory reset.


    Thank you for your understanding.

    Nice greetings from summer holidays , far away :smiling_face:

    Awesome work Sam. Thks so much.

    Thanks should go to the devs.,175n, Jennie in first line and of course also to all our helpers in closed alpha and beta, for testing and reporting on many other places on this earth :winking_face:

  • Awesome work. I have not find any issues with the update. I was using the open beta as well and now subtitles works (Swedish) + VOD data load failed error is gone which I did had before.


    A lot of hard work and great to see the GTV progress. The support/devs did reply me very fast with the subtitles issue for finding a solution.

  • Hi Sam!! As mentioned on the other thread that was closed, after updating the GTV, it still doesn't have the USB DVB-T2 option. Is this an upgrade that is to come or is an issue with this update?

    Which dvbt usb stick are you trying to use? Name and version? Check the changelog in first post to find out which one is supported.

  • Updated and connected the GTV to my QNAP NAS for recording. All seems well.
