Thinking along the lines of Ten Play, Plus7, SBSOn Demand, etc.Also, does it seem to cover a wide variety of video formats? Do you know the model of the Soniq TV that you have?Anyway, the problem is with the two way digital communication of HDMI and the EDID data.Sometimes the TV tells the computer what resolution it wants and the computer obliges.I have a soniq smart tv, whenever i turn it on it defaults to a cinavision home page requiring me to press a home key on the remote everytime to enter full screen tv.
Tried selecting Cinavision TV, but that just runs the Cinavision App, which I absolutely do not want. Thanks so much, that's a frustrating, obsessive mystery solved for me. MX Player didn't work for me – asked for an SD card I think. I connected some Logitech speakers from JB using the adapter in the TV box into the 3 in one audio video plug a rca to headphone jack adapter. Anyone else seen or know how to remedy this problem?
– Auto Start v2.1 (mentioned above) Paid apps I own but had to put on by APK – Plex v3.3.2 – works well except it squashes video that does not have "square" pixels, but this is a known bug with Plex on some Android devices. The problem with this for me is that sometimes my media centre picks up the lower resolution of the TV preview window on the menu screen, and changes resolution accordingly.
– Minecraft v0.8.1 – using the LAN, the kids link the TV to their i Pads and use the TV big screen for a birds eye view and their i Pads for building – Clash of Clans v6.108.2 – works but a bit clunky with the small keyboard Failed Apps – Google Play Store – could not get any version to work (I have not given up yet) – Foxtel Go v1.4.1 – it's not a Galaxy! Then when the TV does go fullscreen, the media centre sometimes doesn't switch back to 1920x1080 and so things look a bit weird until I restart the media centre.
I'm not sure, but I have a feeling that if if it could just go straight from the Cinavision splash screen to fullscreen without seeing the menu/home screen at all, the problem would go away.
Still happy to have the home screen available at the push of a button, just I would prefer to just call it when I need it and otherwise never see it.
