      Hi David. Hope you can help. I'm using a Droidbox T8 running Wookie Isengard 15 which I haven't updated since buying it and setting it up about a year or so ago and many of the links no longer work. The Wookie Wizard says 'Wookie Error. Check log'. I probably need to update the Wookie Wizard to the latest version which is 15.2 I think but I'm not sure the best way to do it. Can you advise please.

        Thanks David. Wow doesn't sound too easy! I thought I'd just have to delete the data in Wookie and install the newer version! You live and learn I suppose!!! Wish it was easier though!

      I have a T8 v2, I switch on, go into XBMC, video add ons, choose Genesis and TV or films, search and it searches and then stops. I tried to load the DroidBOX Control Centre via Google Play store, clicked on Install, nothing happens, update YouTube same thing, won't install. I just don't know what to do.

        I believe the t8 v2 is a droidsticks (entertainment box) device which is possibly why droidbox cc wont load. Regarding the rest i would update xbmc to kodi on google play. Registering there might update youtube as well. Regarding Genesis, this addon is long dead. Try Exodus instead.

        Also Genesis is no longer working, it's now called Exodus. Phoenix is a good add-on too.

      Hi David, my droidbox was switched off for two months as I was on holiday. when I switched it on I got a page with the day and date and numbers 0-9. at the top of page is plug in charger and at the bottom it says emergency call. I cannot reset or get anything else up. I am wondering if a password is required as I have never used one. hope you can help

      Hi David, I was directed to you by DroidBox help desk regarding sound settings for home cinema system 5.1 and Dolby Atmos. Can you point me to a How To or give me some idea how to set this up on DroidBox T8-S Plus. So far I could get 5.1 and DTS, no Dolby Atmos, in openelec/Kodi but not DBMC. DroidBox and AV are connected via HDMI. Thanks Vlada.

        Inside kodi go to system and system again, then Audio output. Make sure number of channels is 2.0, and enable passthrough. Also enable Dolby digital and DTS and enable Dolby transcoding too.
        Hope this helps you.
        Sorry for the delay in answering.

        One last thing Atmos is normally 5.1.4 the 4 is the new height speakers and I haven't seen any of this on kodi yet. Plus you would need super fast Internet speeds.

      Hi David and Nigelar thanks for your suggestions, ive found a work around after looking through the forum, not ideal but it's good for now, I reinstalled and went with light and added openelec as a shortcut so now I can have wookie that looks good plus can boot to android. Thanks again guys.

      Hi there again david I did what You suggested reset with the reset button and did a factory reset from the recovery menu,I installed new version of wookie in the openelec but again there's no way to exit and switch to android from within the new wookie or even retro wookie.The only way I can get to android is to change the skin to standard confluence.
      1. Nigelar
        Nigelar
        If you search the forum dan there are several threads on returning to android from openelec inc creating shortcuts

        In programs go to openelec configuration go in and on your right scroll down at the bottom and you can switch back here. You can just keep the confluence skin it basic but works well

      Hi I am having a problem with my mxq box it was working then the screen went black and went normal again I turned it of to go to bed tried to turn it back on no go, I didn't buy the box from droidbox nor Amazon or eBay a friend of mine bought it from a seller on adverts.. I have tried the toothpick reboot won't work is there anything you can do to help me?!
      1. David Savage
        David Savage
        Does anything work, doesn't sound good. Try the tooth pick reset, make sure you unplug the power 1st. Hold the button in and plug power back in still holding. Might take a few goes...if you get the recovery menu up clear cache and reboot.
        May 17, 2016
      2. David Savage

        Also check power and HDMI cables too..If nothing works ask your friend if he can return it so you can get a droidbox T8-S.

        Good luck
