What is MAG?
MAG is a brand of set-top boxes that are commonly used to stream digital television content. MAG boxes are known for their compatibility with IPTV (Internet Protocol television) services and are used by many providers to offer TV services over the internet. These boxes use Linux as their operating system and have a user interface that is designed to be simple and user-friendly. MAG boxes also have various hardware features such as HDMI outputs, USB ports, Ethernet ports, and support for various video and audio codecs.
How to update Firmware of the MAG box
Sometimes the best way to fix an issue is to update the MAG box to the latest version of the released firmware. The below instructions will guide you through on how to update your MAG box firmware.
Disconnect the MAG box from the internet.
Reset the MAG box.
Wait until you can see the “Page Loading Error” on the screen.
Plug-in the Internet cable to the box.
By selecting the Embedded Portal, the box will be updated with the latest version.
If the automatic update does not start, press the SET button on the remote, select “software update”, press OK and then press the F1 button.
Some of the MAG devices lose the portal settings after updating the device to the latest version of system software and this will not allow the clients to add any portal addresses to the device.
