Are you paid fastfish tv customer if you got that warning message?

I'm guessing they took our mac address or device ID, and use the fastfish tv app to put an overlaid image above the UI. I don't use the original remote from moonbox, instead I have a small wireless keyboard remote connected, I can launch the system in-built music player and browser without a problem, though other keys are not function as usual.

Thta's good news! Another thought..

1. Connect a laptop using Wifi. Use laptop ethernet port to share internet connection with moonbox. Allowing the laptop to supply internet to moonbox (turn off moonbox's wifi to make sure its really the Ethernet is the sole internet provider).
2. Power up moonbox and use Wireshark to listen to laptop's Ethernet port.
3. Fish all IPs moonbox communicates to through the Ethernet port.
4. Compile the IP list - will be a long consider how Asian apps like to phone home 24/7
5. Divide and conquer the list. Block IPs group by group, using windows HOSTS file.
6. Restart Moonbox to see if authenticate server address gets blocked - If (true) cheers! else go back #5 and block another group
7. Hope moonbox only uses one IP to do authentication.

sorry... I can't test this atm... having a test tomorrow :(

edit: On second thought, we can read the network logs in router's admin, coming from the moonbox's internal IP to external IP. That will do #1-#3. Reason I've listed #1-#3 cause the list will be much cleaner if its just listening to a single port with a single device.
Good thoughts... I was thinking of using a packet analyser to find it.

Same here, up to you know what with work and not much time to dive into this.

Can't wait to get to know the auth. server and send a few nice packets it's way, maybe we can even lock it up and demand payment so we can all go buy a nice android box :-)

i unplugged my modem before turning it on...and it still gives me that authorization failure screen....so once you get zapped with it, it stays without connecting to an authorization server..

i'll burn this dumb box before i pay them $15 ....criminals get nothing from me...people like that have no shame..bet they will unzip their pants if I'm willing to shove a $5 bill down there...

i'm going to contact those douchebags and just vent...

Hope one of our computer expert friends here will figure out how to flash this piece of shiite. Until then, I'm not turning on my box.

Question,

Those of you who have a hrsj subscription, does the TVB 24h news channel work? I believe its channel 002, but mine just keep spinning. Some of the other HK channels keep spinning as well (003, 004, 007, 009, 011, 013, 018)

I'm using a mibox

Ok thanks, I am testing the waters before giving it to my elderly parents. Those are the main channels i am interested in. Otherwise, yes I did see a bunch of other channels that seem to work.

Fast Fish App still worked (I have it installed on my other Android TV box) , what got locked out is the Moon Box operating system itself. You need to pay $15 USD for the operating system to work. You need to message someone through WeChat or QQ to pay but I don't have the ID for it. Does anyone have the ID so I can message them to unlock my MoonBox?
You pay them once, they’ll know your easy fish and block you again next month and charge you again for another $15 or maybe more next time Smirking Face

A solution is to download no root firewall and block all internet access except hrsj

So the process would be to get the app for hrsj and no root firewall and have it available on usb drive, unplug internet cable and factory reset, then install hrsj and no root without internet

Configure the firewall to block all except hrsj then all should be good and reconnect internet

Factory reset? How do you do that?

"No root firewall" app, wheres do I get the app Play store?


block all except hrsj? How do I block all except hrsj? What port does hrsj use?

No root firewall list the apps on the device, you choose what to allow or deny internet

To do factory reset, do a google
