H8 Series Octo Core Android TV Box / Re: Internet connection - ethernet or wifi
« Last post by seeknom on August 30, 2017, 12:57:29 PM »
I just bought mine 2 days ago and I'm having the same issue. When everything is ok, running speedtest on my H8 Lite shows ~45Mbps download and ~10Mbps upload. However the connection randomly slows down (not sure what the trigger is) and when I check the speed, I'm getting about ~1.5Mpbs download (upload is still at ~10Mbps though). Other devices in my house on the same network continue to operate at ~45Mbps so my router seems ok. And, it's not just a false reading by speedtest, when this happens streaming is really poor and play store downloads are slow as molasses.

I don't know if it's a hardware or software issue, but I'm trying to determine whether to return the box to the store. If anyone has any ideas they would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

As for the details of my box, it's an H8 Lite and the software is up to date. I'm not at home right now to check the exact version, but it's running whatever the latest is from the OTA servers (when I first booted it, I clicked on the OTA app, it reported there was an update, so I installed it).

H8 Series Octo Core Android TV Box / How to upgr Kodi 17.3 software on H8
« Last post by Golfdude on August 19, 2017, 03:34:09 PM »
Can someone provide the steps on how to successfully upgrade the current stock 15.2 Kodi software to Kodi 17.3? I have reset and upgrade the core firmware to 1.1.7 and have tried both to load 17.3 via Google Play and also using a USB stik with the apk....nothing seams to work?
I have spent 2 days trying and this is very frustrating and if this cannot get resolved then this box will be on Kijiji on Monday !!
PS...why isn't Kodi 17.3 built into the latest core firmware release? There aren't too many builds out there that will still accept 15.2 Kodi release !!
...thk in advance !!
Hey Misty, did you get bt working?

Hi there!

I have had the H8 Octo Core for a few years with little to no issues. I just updated the firmware today to HMD-1.1.7 2017-03-24.175902 in an attempt to fix the Bluetooth issue.

Once  its selected to turn on, it will instantly turn back off after a second. I am trying to sync a new keyboard I got for it that unfortunately only have Bluetooth capabilities. Is there a fix for this or should I just return the keyboard. Any suggestion would be wonderful! :)
