Default DSTV Now App not working on minix Neo U1

Hi

The DSTV Now app doesn't work on the Minix Neo U1 media player. The app downloads from the play store fine and the devices is NOT rooted.

The message we see is "Video Playback Error - 4101 - DRM failed to initialize". I see comments that the app isn't supported on rooted devices but mine isn't rooted.

Why wont it play or why isn't it supported?

For now external media players such as Apple TV and Chrome Cast are not supported - we'll have more news around that in the coming weeks.

well here's to hoping it will be supported soon.
Have you got Supersport running fine on it though?

Since updating to the latest app last night, the error message I used to get "Video Playback Error - 4101 - DRM failed to initialize" has been replaced with: "Registration error: This device is currently registered to another user....."

this device is brand new and an original device. no other user accounts have been used on this device. Im unable to register the device due to this.

Any ideas?

That is good to know Luke. Yes you can only link up to 4 devices.
