XBMC: Live English TV Channels – Part 1 (Mash Up)

I am frequently asked what are the English live TV channels available through XBMC on our Genie Box?

It is a difficult question to answer, because that depends on what XBMC add-on you are using.

Here, I would list some of the Live English TV channels available through Mash Up under Live Streams. Other apps also have live TV sections but not as comprehensive as Mash Up/F.T.V.

XBMC: How to download movie or tv streams?

Many people inquire about downloading movies. I personally only stream not download. The Internet is my hard disk. But for those of you who are still holding up to the old ways, this will help.  Though this tutorial is done on a computer, XBMC is the same on the computer as on your Genie Android Box.

The above is for XBMC versions older than 13.  Starting in XBMC v13 “Gotham” subtitles are now built into XBMC, and instead of downloading the subtitle download add-on, you install specific subtitle services. See Guide here

Problem with XBMC support for AMLogic M802 solved

The lack of support of AMLogic M802 chip in XBMC 13 (Gotham) was resolved. Now our units come with XBMC 14 (Helix) alpha that has been specifically modified to support the AMLogic new quad core chip.  It works like a charm.

Here is what this special XBMC release addressed:

  1. It can play different video formats, including 4k, rmvb, wmv, mkv, avi, mp4, m2ts, h265 and so on
  2. supports Dolby and DTS.
  3. No video audio asynchronization issue.
  4. No need to root the device.
  5. No need to change any settings.

XBMC Gotham does not support AMLogic S802!!

Well, I had to discover it the hard way. After receiving the new shipment of the M8 pre-installed with XBMC Gotham, could not get it work. Just before displaying any video, it boots out of XBMC. Tried the newest Gotham 13.1 beta 2, with the same result. So, I tried installing XBMC Frodo (12.3), it worked just fine.

Well, when I researched the problem, I found this quote “Early this year when XBMC annouced their newest ‘Gotham’ beta version, many people were disappointed that it will only support hardware decoding for RK3188 but not Amlogic chipset. We on the other hand is not upset by this news, as a R&D company we always wants to do things our way – creating and enabling functions is always our strength.” The quote is attributed to Geniatech, one of the major manufacturers of amlogic android TV boxes.

Should that bother you, not at all.  Whatever version of XBMC you will get what you want, i.e. HDTV and HD Dolby sound.
