Had to restart it this evening. No picture or sound on Live TV. The recordings list showed up, UI fine, but the LiveTV app was showing nothing. Tried disconnecting HDMI cables but no luck.
That's good news. Can't see it in my Google Play store - can you post some screenshots of it running to give us all a preview?
++UPDATE++ Got it. First impressions are positive......
Tested several recordings. Replays recordings made on the HD channels . Presumably recodes on the fly. Live TV works also works on all channels. Main snag is unit cannot wake the unit and until it's fully on you can't do anything. I like to watch Breakfast on BBC- ever morning as I ablute. I have been using a Vbox for this. Going to try a series watch recording, hopefully this will wake the box from full sby. Small snag Reminder does not have a series option. So set a full series recording for breakfast.
We're used to that though, perhaps it's part of the general specifications. I use a manual timer set for weekdays (HDR-FOX), but I think it was said further up the Aura doesn't have manual timers.Small snag Reminder does not have a series option.
Correct it does not. Nor a timed power on off option.We're used to that though, perhaps it's part of the general specifications. I use a manual timer set for weekdays (HDR-FOX), but I think it was said further up the Aura doesn't have manual timers.
Same for me. Happened after watching some YouTube vids - not sure if there is a pattern/connectionHad to restart it this evening. No picture or sound on Live TV. The recordings list showed up, UI fine, but the LiveTV app was showing nothing. Tried disconnecting HDMI cables but no luck.
Currently the Aura app is not yet released. This will let you view the downloaded recordings on the device with the app on. Schedule recordings from the guide and hopefully remote scheduling. The box already has remote scheduling capability. Not tried as due to lockdown not been away from home, so no point at the present time.
So, I could use Netflix on my laptop and 'cast it to the Aura? That could work, especially as I have the Get_Iplayer PVR working nicely.No netflix (licencing limitation) but has Amazon Prime. Not an issue for me as i have a 4K firestick.
All Android TV devices have a built in chromecast device including the Aura. So lots of other kit can cast to the built in chromecast.
No it jumps to the bottom of the epg list. If you are at the top of the epg there no other channels to go up to. If you aren't at the top of the epg up just goes up to the channel above where you are. Like the poster who wanted this to happen in the recordings list. Pressing down again once jumps back to the top of the epg. Channel 001 BBC1- SD is the lowest channel number and the epg is displayed lowest to highest as normal. so on 0001 there is no channel 000 to go up to (up in the epg is going down in channel numbers).
It's not rocket science to make it wrap around. The fact that there's no 000 is neither here nor there.
It might be. Things like pick lists will be a standard feature available to apps through the API, and if the standard pick list doesn't wrap around - that's the end of the story.It's not rocket science to make it wrap around.
It wraps on directiondown but not on pagedown
