You’ve seen and loved our HD quad core TV box, now fall in love all over again on a whole new level with the MXQ Pro 4K ultra HD Android TV box. This is taking entertainment to an entire new level.
The MXQ Pro Android TV box has taken the best features of the popular and reliable MXQ and expanded and improved them. With more options and a clarity like never before, you’ll be wondering how you ever did without this amazing box.
Forget the dull pixelated world of 1080P resolution. Now you can combine the latest in sharp imagery on massive LED LCD screens with the 4k Ultra HD streaming from providers such as Netflix. This box coupled with the NBN makes for fun.
The MXQ Pro has been built with style, affordability and reliability in mind. The designers took a keep it simple approach in the aesthetic design. It’s a simple black box, compact yet not out of place in any living room. Its simplistic black design with straight edges will fit into any decore.
The box comes with a sturdy and powerful Amlogic S905 quad core processor and 1 GB of DDR3 ram. This combines to deliver smooth video delivery either over the web, your local home network or even from an external hard drive. There will be no breaking of video playback with this little wonder.
Now you’re probably thinking that with all of this design and technology the price will be sky high. Think again. They have managed to pack this Android TV box full of features, but keep the price down at the same time. But don’t think that just because the price is low they have compromised on quality. These are as reliable as ever, and will satisfy your daily need for a very long time.
What can you do with the MXQ Pro quad core Android TV Box?
The box runs on Android 5.1 lollipop, the latest version of the Android operating system. Being Android, it has access to hundreds of thousands of apps available in the Google Play store market. You can download social apps, dating apps, games, and best of all, media apps.
Install and watch catch TV using the ABC iView app, Tenplay or any other freeview app available on the marketplace. Watch streaming TV from Netflix, Stan, Presto or Getflix. Entertain yourself with YouTube, Facebook and Vine videos. The options are almost endless. But the best is yet to come.
With the Kodi app that comes pre-installed you can watch TV from around the world, and for free. The Kodi app can also access the latest TV shows and movies in glorious HD. The amount of content in Kodi will make Netflix look like a joke.

This box is loaded with the latest version of KODI and is designed to update online, meaning that the add-ons will always update by themselves, ensuring no add-on is left outdated. With every release of KODI some add-ons may not work. Once the developer of the add-on has released an update it will work perfectly.
Here’s a small example of the addons that you can experience.

Not to say that you will actually have problems, but if you do most can be easily solved.
Remote not working: Test the remote using a camera. Place the IR towards the lens of a digital camera and press some buttons. If the IR doesn’t light up the remote control is faulty. Contact us for a free replacement.
Video is buffering: Usually related to slow internet. Some video streaming apps require different connection speeds. As a minimum it is recommended that a 8 mbps line speed be in place. Some apps such as Foxtel and Netflix need a 3 mbps and 1 mbps line speed respectively. I strongly recommend testing the service you wish to use on a pc or phone before purchasing. Reset your router and check your wiring and wireless signal. Use online testing tools to determine the speed of your connection. Anything under 3 Mbps will result in poor video quality. Contact your ISP for help. If it isn’t the ISP’s fault it will be the content provider. In this case send them a contact to bring it to their attention. If it’s in Kodi try a different stream.
Apps are saying no connection to the internet: Check your connections and the app permissions. If you haven’t granted the app permission to the internet you will have to rectify this. Failing this fix delete the offending app and install it again.
Netflix and other apps are difficult to use: Navigation issues with apps such as Netflix are often encountered and they are not a fault of the box. The apps were designed for touch screen devices, something that you can not emulate 100% on a television with the remote that comes with the box. To overcome this problem we strongly recommend that you purchase either a mini keyboard or air mouse remote control. Either of these affordable devices will improve usability for these apps several times over, and many other apps as well.
Box crashes: Turn the box off and on again. If the problem persists go into settings and do a factory reset. This will clear any software problems and restore the box to the original factory defaults.
Box locks up: Inside the AV port on the rear is a small button. Using something like a tooth pick gently hold the button down until the box restarts. This will perform a manual reboot and reset. Follow the onscreen instructions.
Netflix and or remote become unresponsive: This is not a fault of the box. It’s partly to do with the design of the remote control the box comes with and how the app is designed for touch screen devices. The remote, which is a simple point and click remote like a TV remote, is unable to emulate a touch and swipe input like phones and tablets do. We strongly recommend the purchase of the mini keyboard or air mouse to make using the box, especially in Netflix a lot easier. Either the mini keyboard or air mouse will allow you to emulate a touch response on your TV.
Stan doesn’t work: Stan is a difficult app. In the store it has a low rating thanks to its lack of compatible devices. Our experience with this box is that Stan is an unreliable app, and best avoided with this box. Problems you may encounter include not playing titles, even after selecting one and crashing or force closing. These problems are with the app and not the box. Please reach out to the developer through the Play Store to request an update.
Apps won’t work on jailbroken devices: Install an app called “hide my root.” Go into the hide my root app and select “hide SU binary.” After activating this option go over all of your settings again to make sure it didn’t change anything. You should now be able to access the previously blocked app.
