    With the current build: To see the HDMI issue on skygo, No login is required. If you install the app and click on any program to watch, The HDMI issue will appear before you even get a chance to login. So it checks HDMI before it checks account details.

    With the new unreleased build(no account details entered) if you click on any program to watch it will bring you to login screen. The hdmi issue does not appear.

    Hi Ken,

    Can you please check the Bein connect app for Mena region. When I try to view live content, the app just closes. I suspect that it requires HDMI spoofing as well. you don't require login as there is a free channel that you can view directly.

    Appreciate your help

    Thanks ken. I'm out of country enjoying euros until 26th June. Cannot test. But it's great you got it working. Thanks for your time and commitment.

    Ok I've got it working!

    - Installed FW008 OTA
    - Tried Sky Go and got the HDMI not supported message:(
    - Went into Recovery Mode and deleted cache partition
    - Rebooted U1 and Sky Go worked:D
    - Rebooted again and back came the HDMI not supported message:(
    - Cleared cache again and rebooted and it works, have rebooted a couple of times since and tried All Task Killer and it is still working.:D

    I'll keep testing over the next few days and report back if I have any problems, thanks for all your work.

    No that's not me. I just got my minix box a few days ago because my 6 year old laptop gave up on me and couldn't handle HD streaming any longer. It happened at the worst possible time with Euro 2016 ongoing.

    Yesterday I updated to the latest FW and Bein Sport live streaming works.

    Thanks for your support (y)

    Some more on the Sky Go app. It seems switching between input sources on my AVR for example from the U1 to my satellite receiver and back again is enough for the Sky Go app to detect I'm using an HDMI connected device.

    If I delete the Sky Go data via Settings > Apps > Sky Go app > Clear Data and then re-start the U1 then the Sky Go app works again until I switch inputs. It will even interrupt a programme/channel being played if the input is swopped.

    Hi Ken,
    I was wondering if you might be able to look at the Foxtel Go app (v3.1.0) for Aus. I'm thinking it's pretty similar to the Sky Go app. I'm having similar experiences to the guys using Sky Go in that i can log in to the app and have the U1 as a registered device (this is further than i've got before, in the past i'd just get the loading screen with the message about removing the external display).

    Now what happens is that i get the UI and channels but no picture or sound, everything functions as it should, as in i can switch live channels or go to catch up, just have no pic or sound as mentioned.

    I couldn't post links to the app, the version is 3.1.0

    If you need a login to investigate i can organise one for you.

    appreciate any help you can give

    I'm afraid we can't change that part, it would affect all users.
    I guess the app detects the change of EDID/HDMI info when input is switched.

    I updated to the latest software and then tried this and it worked ok :) I then watched Ireland getting beaten in the rugby twice :(
    However turned off machine and tried to watch it again and got the it does not support HDMI etc message. Used CC Cleaner to clean cache etc and also went into app settlings and cleaned there and tried to login but same problem. Any reason as to why I could login initially and not now or is there a setting I need to change

    I understand. And contrary to what I posted previously, it seems there is no need to delete cache either in the app or the U1 to get it back working. Just restarting the box seems to work (until I swap inputs of course:D) so not a huge problem.
