DStv Now

#1

Post by Rudolf0509 » Thu Feb 07, 2019 5:55 pm

Hi Guys,

Will Dstv Now the app work on the new update for the S905W device?

Inquiring from South Africa. Currently the Dstv Now app is working great but when I scroll through the channels the view starts flickering. Which makes it difficult to view the channels.

Please advise

DSTV are really sticky about what devices the app will run on.

You can install the app from apkpure and hope for the best.

Hi

My dstv now app just stopped working the other day and I also have a S905W unit, the update screen came on and just stopped working, I did not click update as the instruction in the box said not to do so.

How do I fix this.

Regards

Update Google Play Services and also system Webview app.

*The above app runs under v2FF on TX3 mini, i can't try it any further because I'm not from that region...

There is no need to update Google Play store :point_up:

Can you download it to your android Phone or Tablet?

Then you can extract the APK if it is installed and send it to your TVbox with FTP or use apps like SendAnywhere to transfer files between Android devices. (Note: SendAnywhere must be installed in both devices to transmit files between the 2)

Or use APKmirror.com to download and install directly on your device through web browser, link:

@Leanne01
Did you see my comment above?

If that doens't help you, then you must update Play store manually by downloading the correct AndroidTV Store from APKmirror.com and deleting the PlayStore that is in your system partition at directory: /system/priv-app/Tubesky/
and then Copy/Paste the new Store to that location and Rename the apk to Tubesky.apk and Set Permissions to RW-R--R-- and then Reboot device for the change to take place.
Pro tip: if doing a manual system apk change, is best to make sure Wifi is Off and/or Ethernet disconnected so Google Services doesn't cause any errors.
