Before Booking Remote Programming, Complete These Steps


First and foremost,

What OS is your tv box running? Don’t know? Click here to find out.

If it’s running OS 4.4, there is no update/programming for your tv box. Kodi 18 will not run on an OS 4.4 tv box. It’s time for a new tv box.

If your tv box is running OS 5.1 or higher, it can be updated/programmed. Proceed with the instructions below.

Step 1: 

In order for us to connect remotely to your tv box, it must have both an internet upload speed of at least 5 Mbps and a download speed of at least 25 Mbps. Any less and we won’t be able to connect remotely. So the most important and first step is to test the upload and download speeds your tv box is getting.

This test must be done on your tv box as that is what we will be connecting to. 

Go to Chrome if you have it, Browser if not, and type in http://speedtest.shaw.ca/.

If that website doesn’t work for you, google “speed test”.

For upload speed, you need at least 5 Mbps. For download speed, you need at least 25 Mbps.
If you have both minimum speeds listed above, we can book a time for a remote update. Less than the minimum, your connection is too slow for remote support.

Take a photo of your speed test results so we can confirm the speeds. Email the photo to info@homearcadeinabox.com or text it to 780-887-8978.

Step 2: 

There are two apps you will need to have installed on your tv box. QuickSupport and QuickSupport Add-On. Your tv box may already have them installed.

Check to see if both Quick Support and it’s add-on are pre-installed on your tv box by clicking Settings (may be a picture of a gear wheel or wrench/screwdriver).
Some boxes require you to go to More or Advanced to access the screen with Apps.

Go to Apps and click it.

Scroll through Downloaded apps.

The apps are usually in alphabetical order. You are looking for QuickSupport and QuickSupport Add-On.
*Both are necessary in order for us to access your tv box remotely.*

If you have both, super! Proceed to step 3.

QuickSupport
QuickSupport Add-On

Don’t have both? Or only have QuickSupport and not it’s Add-On? Click here for instructions to download and install.

Step 3:

Contact us to set up a time to remotely program your tv box!
You will need to be present with your tv box to allow any permissions required.
The programming usually takes about 30-45 minutes to do.
While we are programming your tv box, please don’t touch it or your remote as that may disrupt our connection.
