The TV has no signal

Often, a reboot of your equipment is enough to make your device work again. If the Internet does not work either, refer to this section. If not, perform these basic checks:

  • Have you restarted your decoder (unplugging and then reconnecting the power supply)?
  • Have you verified if your Minix is up to date?
  • Are your TV cables properly plugged in?
  • Do you have new batteries in the remote?
  • Is a cable defected or not connected correctly?
  • Have you selected the correct source (ex. AV1, HDMI2… etc.) in your television?
  • Check if the electrical outlet is working proprely (for example by plugging in a lamp).

Please note

If the Minix decoder is powered on,
a blue LED should be visible on the front panel (except the Minix Mini).

The quality of the channels is bad

If that the quality of the channels is not to your approval? Then it is probably one of the following cases:

The HDMI cable is damaged or not connected properly Make sure the cable is connected all the way in the port and that the HDMI is in good condition
Disturbances related to one of the devices connected to the modem Disconnect all devices connected to the modem and then test again by only reconnected the TV decoder.
Disturbances related to PLC usage * Disconnect the PLC and connect the TV decoder directly to the modem using an Ethernet cable

We recommend you to also follow the basic instructions related to the TV.

*PLC: Power Line Communication

This device allows data to be exchanged through an electrical grid using specific adapters, thus avoiding wiring between rooms. More information here.
The use of PLC can sometimes be a source of instabilities and disrupt the television connection.
The Ethernet cable remains the most efficient way (both in terms of speed and stability) to connect your TV decoder to your modem.

My decoder seems out of order

First of all, check if your devices are correctly powered on. To do so, start by checking the condition of the electrical outlet.
  • Try plugging another device into the same outlet, such as a lamp.
  • Try connecting the modem to another outlet.
  • Try removing any extension or power strip that might be defective.

After each step verify if the problem persists

Please note

If the Minix TV decoder has an electrical connection, a blue dot on the front (except the Minix Mini)

Press the 'Power' button on the Minix TV decoder to turn it on. The Minix mini doesnt have a Power button, it will automatically turn on.

My remote doesn't work

If the remote isn’t working, it is probably one of the following cases:
The batteries are dead Replace with new batteries and test again
The decoder doesn't receive a signal When using the remote control, make sure you are directly in front of the decoder. Also make sure nothing is obstructing the infrared sensor.

If the problem persists, your remote control might be defective. We recommend you pass by our shop for testing and if needed we will replace it.
The new remote will not be billed if it is still under guarantee and that you are not responsible for the damages.

Important

Be sure to respect the direction of the batteries and to avoid using rechargeable batteries.
