    ah right so it may be that showbox is the issue , however if addons within kodi work as you mention evolve then it would seem that your box is running ok otherwise .

    Mobdro and showbox can be hit and miss , I deleted them , I reckon all what you're looking for is within kodi , for first time users I would recommend ares wizard as posted before ares is not a build , but does have a list of builds to choose if you wish also has a list of top addons and can be installed on to the vesion of kodi that you have , and play straight from video,video addons, it can save users who are unsure how to install addons via apk fiLe or urls lines until users get used to navagating round there boxes ........
    Cheers guys ..........

    Hello Members,
    I am a newbie and using a M8 Kodi TV Box
    I would like to know if anyone can guide me to remove 2 icons that appear on start up in the first homescreen.
    I think one is a shortcut of an app, and the other when clicked on opens up in the address bar of google.
    Thank you.

    Hi,
    I am working on - MX Box - MBX (g18ref)
    Android Version 4.2.2.

    I installed Kodi 16.1 and done with all the setting, and still getting sound with NO PICTURE.
    Are there any others Apps that crashed with the KODI?

    I don't have any problem watching KODI on others Android Box.

    Need some advice.

    Thank You.

    paulie...when i tried to install it originally i googled for instructions instead of just clicking your link, the instructions i followed gave the url ending in .com instead of.mx thats why it didnt work ( i know youll be thinking ye right but honest it's true, i had the pulsemediahubx10 bit right but it had the wrong ending... weird) anyway just edited the zip so its .mx and alls well now so thanks.

    KODI running smoothly but play with only sound and no picture black screen.
    I have done with the setting and also set the Mbox setting with the HDMI 1080 output. Still having same problem.
    I have tired factory reset to the Mbox. And reinstalled Kodi, still not working.

    sivvy if you go to box settings-more settings-display....it should give you an option of media launcher or homepage on start up, choose media launcher and youll get the page paulie describes on start up... I had same problem before.

    IF ive described it wrong let me know...im at work but im sure that's the right way from memory.

    go to home instead of display!

    Yep upar is right , I took it that you had the media launcher on startup , follow upars post and change to launcher then you'll have the plus icon box to delete and add different icons ........

    Upar and Paulie, yes media launcher works though i cannot find these 2 icons to delete...one i think is a shortcut and the other come up after watching youtube.
    I prefer to stay on launcher screen as the pic posted on monday thanks.

    I did indeed read the newbie guide after reading the posts about the virtual error issue. But all sorted now. Currently in using evolve and exodus and had no issues. And the evolve team I've delt with trapper mainly is a top bloke. I sent I'm a recently made moto gp documentary and he uploaded it for me and others. Also uploaded some my little pony on request. Can not recommend that add on more the devs are always on had to help out.
