Cheers. I would be particularly interested to know if it is slow or speedy, and also if the ability to set remote recordings, from outside the range of your WiFi, is real.
(You can test the latter, without breaking lockdown, by switching the WiFi off on your phone and just using cellular).
I have received my Aura today and the NowTV app does not work despite assurances by Humax Support.
When I try to load NowTV I get 'NOW TV is not supported on this device', even though I can download the app to the box.
I have reached out to Humax support and will await their response, I'll update when I have further information.
Yeah understood, but Humax support said earlier this week in an email to me that the Humax Aura box would receive full now tv app support.
I’m therefore awaiting feedback from Humax support on this matter, I’ll update when I receive it.
I suggest you retch out to NowTV Support as well. They will have been the ones who put the app in the Store, and no doubt it’s the version that checks to see if it is on a Sony YouView TV and won’t work otherwise.
As I said above, such an arrangement is a very bad idea that flies in the face of everything that the Android Store stands for, and this just demonstrates that further.
You're misunderstanding how the play store works. Every single app uploaded to it can be set to be available to download or not on whichever devices the developer wishes.
That could be for either compatibility, commercial or any other reason. This is why, for instance, the now tv app is available on (some?) Sony Android TV's and not the multitude of other Android TV devices, such as the Nvidia shield.
So, there's no guarantee that it'll be available in the near (or long) term on the aura. We'll have to just wait and see.
