We are aware of a bug that sometimes leaves the box stuck on “Updating Software”.
Please note that this is a Google issue and the workaround is as follows:

  • Unplug the box (power off).
  • Click to Download the attached file update
  • Place the extracted folder from the attached file onto a memory stick, including the file inside (so path is \skyworth\autotest_command). Please use a FAT or FAT32 formatted memory stick).
  • Attach the memory stick to the port nearest the power chord ( the one on the corner).
  • Power on the box and wait for the box to power down again.This should trigger a factory reset. After this is completed, you should be able to remove the memory stick and start the setup process again.

This issue should be resolved by the next software update.
