Himedia have not even been able to fix a basic issue in their firmware of being able to turn the wifi off, and it stays off, when the lan is connected and even when the device restarts.

This is a problem on the q10, q5 pro and q30.

Strange that himediatech website does not host their firmwares anymore. Its as if the company has abandoned providing any firmwares for their products anymore to end users and will only deal with the wholesalers/retailers.

A lesson to be learned now for purchasing any furure himedia products.

I was not able to stop wifi turning itself back on in FW 2.14 even after reinstall the FW, when starting the himedia the wifi starts by itself, the wifi then somehow interferes with the lan connection and the network performance is terrible when both wifi and lan are on.

This is an old problem and I think himedia are ignoring it and it will never be fixed.

By the way the problem eexists with fw 2.14 on q10, q5pro and q30.

Had to go back to FW 2.12 where turning the wifi stays off.

There is a problem in the 2.14 fw

Hi please help.

When I press off on remote or via power off app the q10 firs black screen but white light not red light at front. So can't turn it on with remote again. I have to unplug from wall socket. Any idea why?

Thanks.
I get the same but only randomly, say 1 in every 10 shutdowns.

Don't have any other add-ons except the Himedia default add-ons so it seems Himedia firmware is the root of this.

I noticed the features of the HiMedia Q100 model, but being owner of the Himedia Q10 pro I don't see big differences that can justify the upgrade to this model.
Maybe firmware with less bugs?
Q100 looks to be just a Q30 dressed in a new case, the only technical advantage is it has more storage.

Firmware is still android 7 and probably still the same bugs. There is no Bluetooth just like the q30.

Certainly not worth acquiring.

Install with paper clip and never open HiMedia Settings/Network, use inside of that HiMedia Settings/More/Ethernet(WiFi) then WiFi will be keep OFF.
In unlucky case when user touch HiMedia Settings/Network WiFi will be always trigger ON.

OK thanks Pcristi, I have reinstalled the firmware version 2.1.1 and the wifi stays off. I am OK like that. Thanks.

WIFI again.... firmware 2.1.4, reinstalled firmware 2X using the toothpick in reset hole.

Impossible to disable wifi in settings, it shows only disconnected but all the access points are shown, that means the wifi is on and scanning, just not connected to an access point.

When disable the wifi in android setting-setting-wifi, the wifi always switches itself back on to scan wifi access points.

Network icon shows disconnected, and when opening this the wifi also switches on the wifi in the android settings.

Rebooting the device switches the wifi back on automatically by itself.

Really????

Have to now go back to 2.1.1 and hope wifi will stay off again.

All other cheap android devices the wifi is able to be switched off and stay off, himedia quality more expensive device seems impossible to achieve this simple function, really strange.

Just a question, the firmware for himedia youtube for android tv apk is still at version ''YouTube for Android TV 1.3.11'' and it cannot play you tube live streams on you tube such as aljazeera, france 24, RT news, euronews english live for a long time now.

At reboot this app seems to install itself automatically after uninstalling it.

Can this default you tube app not be updated to the most recent version ''YouTube for Android TV 2.06.06''
You can't uninstall factory apps from the official firmware only from custom firmware.

Install Aptoide TV version wich is an alternative to the playstore and install youtube from there, it will be updated when new releases are available.

https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/aptoide/aptoide-tv-android-tv/

Thanks, that Aptoide TV apk is interesting, but it now needs to install an additional apk to get you tube for android tv apk which would not be what I was looking for.  I just want a you tube embedded in the original firmware which is functioning properly and the latest version.

I am also not interested in custom firmware's as my viewing and browsing needs are for me quite basic.

You can install the "normal" youtube app from the playstore.

The only way the stock youtube TV version is upgraded is with a firmware upgrade, you installing it manually downloading the apk or use aptoide to install it. The app upgrading itself like you for some reason want is not possible.

Nope, don't ask to have the you tube for android tv apk upgrading itself (But it would be nice to have the latest version in a new version of the firmware)

I have uninstalled 1.3.11 (firmware version) and installed manually 2.06.06

YT for ATV only updates automatically if it's installed from PlayStore, but it's only available if you have the ATV FW on the Box.

For OFW you need to download and install from apk (Google it), so you can also have the latest version, but it won't update automatically.

Thanks, I know how to do that.

The problem is there is an old you tube apk stuck in the firmware which is not functioning properly.

Chrome, Skype, kodi, and facebook on the homescreen all seem to update but you tube for android tv is still stuck at that very old version.

Why not just implement the normal youtube in homescreen which can be updated automatically? instead of having an old version of the youtube apk stuck in the device which cant play live streaming videos.

Via adb shell look here to get idea how to do.

Thank PCristi, I'll have a look at that but I see the Himedia generic.kl line 28 is correct for the enter key.

Strange because this generic.kl enter key is working properly in my other android 7 devices in chrome browser.

I am running CFW 2.1.4 and WIFI stays off once you disable it, Has never turned itself on.

OK Thanks, I will give this a try, did not install this version because there were some remarks in the forum that some characters in one of the apps shows up in a foreign language.


OK thanks, after install this firmware and then reset the box twice the wifi now stays off at reboot. Much happier.

Type text in the chrome browser search box using a physical  keyboard and press enter...... The enter key does not work.

How to fix/edit the generic keypad in the system files without root?

I guess the problem with enter key seems to be with chrome versions of browsers as only typing in Chrome browser has this problem.

In firefox the enter key is working in the browser.
