    the title description is Android TV Box 4.0 ARM Cortex A9 WiFi HD 1080P HDMI Internet TV Box DDR II 512M 2GB+3D+Flash 10.1
    I bought this product which arrived today. It looks like the android tv atv108 from visson ( same box, external appearance...etc)
    When I plugged in, it picked up straight away my wifi but cannot maintain the connection, it keep cycling through:
    getting IP addresses
    connect (briefly)
    saved status
    When I click on the network to connect, nothing happens and remain in "saved" status.
    Although my home network works well with my dasktop, laptop, tablet Galaxy Tab, android phones...I did tried on
    different channel ( Auto-> 11 -> 1) no improvement.
    I tried several disconnect, no change...
    I even reset to original manufacturer .. no change

    Is there an issue with poor range from the wifi hardware in the TV box? ( my Wifi router is in the next room)?
    I have also an issue that it would not detect the freshly formatted SD card (FAT32).
    the TV Box details ( from settings) are:
    Model: MBX ICS VS-2
    Android version: 4.0.3
    Kernel version: 3.0
    Build Nb: ICS-MBX.20120225

    Development device ID: LB31-2VYA-TEAK-U

    Any tips or advice available or shall I simply return to vendor (it is a guaranteed shipment)?

    Thanks in advance

    You might have a defective unit. Mine works good, Flash works, Google Movies work, and I'm even playing emulated games on a usb game pad.

    Android version: 4.0.3 (Unchanged)
    Kernel version: 3.0 -->3.02
    Build number: ICS-MBX.20120225 -->ICS-MBX.20120422

    Now I just have to learn how to get the best out of it!:rolleyes:

    I am having similar issues with the updated Kernel version: 3.0 -->3.02
    Build number: ICS-MBX.20120225 -->ICS-MBX.20120422

    I cannot get Netflix to stream as the wifi is too slow and a little unstable.

    Do you still have the contact details from the vendor where you got your update?

    I bought my box from TomTop on eBay, and they are a little slow to get back to me.

    You mean you started upgrade procedure within Android by selecting Upgrade application and now you cannot repeat upgrade procedure?

    Not a problem... Unplug your device from power, use paperclip and press reset button on back side and keep it pressed. Power on device (plug in the power cord) and wait for 2 front leds to blink 3 times. After that release reset button. 10 secs or something after that upgrade should start.

    For everyone else, power off doesn't mean to push power button on your remote, it means to unplug your device from power :)
