The tvpads have arrived
(tuesday dispatched, today arrived DHL to the Netherlands.)
But, GODVERDOMME! They charged me 28euros taxes
First impression is good, there are 3 apps providing tvb steaming and yes the best is Lilly, but its still a bit laggy.
I guess we all learned a lesson from you. Order them 1 by 1 like JoeyFan3000
I am still monitoring the streams a bit more before ordering any additional units.
Btw, I just saw some tv models doesn't work with the tvpad. Why is this??

Looks like they increased the resolution of TVB HD on the Lily TV app. It's now really 720p resolution instead of being upscaled. Still seems to hang/pause for me though. What about you guys ?
haha i thought it looked better now, definity an improvementLooks like they increased the resolution of TVB HD on the Lily TV app. It's now really 720p resolution instead of being upscaled. Still seems to hang/pause for me though. What about you guys ?
Well I just tested it and TVB (HD) is unwatchable on the TVPad with the Lily TV app. I can't get even 3 seconds of constant playback. On my PC it plays better though ... hmmmm. So phucker (somehow I have dificulties saying your name ), where are you based again ? In America, Europe or Asia ?
I just received my tvpad today. I connected it with the av cable on my old tv. But all i got is a black screen. No menu etc.. to see.
Later I tried to connect it to my lcd monitor with a hdmi 2 dvi cable. But the monitor just went in sleep mode (no signal).
I chat with a guy from the company. He just said to keep plugging/unplugging the av cable till i see a menu.(Still black screen)
The guy i chat with said it's normal it wouldn't work on my monitor because it's no a tv. (???)
I don't really believe this. I should at least have some display, i think.
Has anyone tried to connect the tvpad with hdmi to dvi cable to a lcd monitor?
Does anyone has any suggestions or the same problem?
I have a few days to open a refund/dispute ticket to sent the package back and get back my money.
I suggest taking the TVpad to a friend's house and use their HDMI TV to switch the video output settings to AV. Keep in mine the best video resolution you will get using AV is 480p. You can get a cheap 32 inch LCD TV for about $250 bucks....at least you'll get HD!
iam from california.. well i haven't test it throughout the day just the morning before work. ill test it a little more tomorrow
Btw, tvb streaming was stopped yesterday during the hk primetime. According to the tvpad forum more ppl got the same problem the last days during primetime, but not everyone (someone got super smoothly lily streams)
粤海宽频 and HITV are usign the same streamingsevers, tvpad has contacted them and the last days they have upgraded their servers and now doing finetuning. They need more time because not everyone is facing problems, but the first stadium is completed and seems like the streams is improved now and will monitoring customers reports to do more improvements.
此次粤语节目卡的问题，我们分别与运营商粤海宽频和HITV做了沟通，他们的内容商属于同一渠道，此次他们 更换了新的发布技术，新的发布技术是以后提高节目清晰度的基础。但新技术也需要市场体验环境，这两天他们一 直在关注这个问题，因为不是每个地方都会卡，今天修改了发布参数，问题已经得到初步解决。不过还希望大家继 续观察，
I connected it to a hdmi tv. Got it working. Some stuttering.
So i guess the default setting is on HDMI. Haven't tried setting it to AV yet.
Had to figure out the chinese characters. Is there an english menu?
The 8gb card i received can't be read in Windows. Windows just want to format it for first use.
Is this normal or is is my card defect?
I just updated the FAQ. So see the last question in the FAQ on the main page if you really need to access the microSD card.
Hey guys, Club TVpad just tested firmware 2.62. When did TVpad release this update? Where can people get it?
