How To Find Sideloaded Apps On Android TV – Icons Not Showing

App not showing up on your Android TV home screen or under Apps? These are two easy ways on how to find sideloaded apks on Android TV.

It happens that when you download and install Android apps on Android TV that they will not show up in the app center. Normally the app icons will show and this is how you can launch them. But some apps since they are not designed for Android TV will not appear and a lot of users do not know how to open them.

In this video, I will show you 2 easy methods on how to find the downloaded android apps that do not show on your Android TV device like an Nvidia Shield TV, Xiaomi Mi Box S, or SONY TV, etc.

While the first method, using Sideload Launcher is pretty easy, the second method using the TV App Repo application is better in my opinion since it is cleaner and permits you to add the app icon on the app drawer of the Android TV Leanback Launcher / App Drawer. So definitely make sure to check it out too!

The $1 a month VPN: https://youtu.be/fmhC7yH-CL4

Downloader is an Android app for the Amazon Fire TV and Android TV devices. It is one of the easiest ways to download files from the internet onto a streaming device. The app is especially helpful in sideloading apps, without needing any additional hardware, like a computer or external drive.

The built-in web browser is made specifically to work with a remote control. It makes it very easy to navigate websites on a Fire TV or Android TV device without needing a mouse or keyboard. Included basic file management makes it possible to download, install, and delete files within the same interface. A favorites section allows you to save and quickly load frequently visited websites.

On Android TV you need to install a plugin, the Browser Plugin in order to browse the web. And in this video, I show you how to install it for Android TV devices like the Nvidia Shield TV, Xiaomi Mi Box and Mi Box S, Sony Android TV, and any Android TV device.

HBO Max: Same Price But More Content

If you need the simple answer, that’s it. The main difference between HBO Go / Now and HBO Max is that although they cost the same price, HBO Max has more content! The new service, HBO Max went live on May 27. It now includes the legacy HBO content but also more content from the larger Warner Media world. What is strange is that both services will co-exist and to make things more complicated they are priced the same. HBO and HBO Max cost both $14.99 a month. But as mentioned above, HBO Max includes movies and tv shows from TBS, Cartoon Network, TNT, TruTV, CNN, Adult Swim, and even selected shows from Turner Classic Movies.

What To Expect on HBO Max

As we mentioned above, HBO Max features everything from HBO Go / HBO Now and more. As Netflix and Amazon Prime Videos, HBO Max will have new movies every month.

Some of the newest addition currently in May 2020 are: Legendary, Love Life, On The Record, Craftopia, Looney Tunes Cartoons and The Now Too Late Show With Elmo.

Mi TV Stick Price

New Android TV Device By Xiaomi

Not a leak but a listing, perhaps by mistake, revealing the new Android TV device by Xiaomi has come up from Gearbest. The brand-new Xiaomi Mi TV Stick running on Android TV OS. The device has been already confirmed that will start selling on May 2020 so we are either way really close.

Xiaomi Mi TV Stick Price

It’s very curious that while the listing doesn’t feature a price for the Android TV Stick, the $79.99 price does show up at the retailer’s search page. The cost of the device looks like a flash sale but it can also prove to be a price for those who just get the Mi TV Stick for first.

Specifications of the Mi TV Stick

Diving into the specs, the Xiaomi Mi TV Stick will be running just with a little better specs as the previously released Xiaomi Mi Box S. but in a smaller size. The Mi TV stick comes with the Amlogic S905Y2 quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. The GPU is a Mali-G31. But we should wait for official confirmation since the listing displays the device as “Mi Box S,” which means this could be just a copy and paste from the previous listings until GearBest has updated information. That mention could also be a typo, and these specs may be correct. According to the Gearbest listing, the Mi TV Stick also supports 4K HDR, DTS-HD audio, Dolby Stereo Sound, Dual-Band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth v4.2, and a USB 3.0 Type-C port for charging.

Xiaomi Mi TV Stick 2020

Considerations about the new Mi TV Stick

However, the $79.99 price listed in the search results is higher by almost 25% from the Xiaomi Mi Box S, which retailed for $59.99 at launch. And we are not even sure if that ends up being the final price for the new Xiaomi Mi TV Stick. The listing is showing as a “Flash Sale”. That can also mean that the final price may be $100 after the flash sale ends.

I really wished the new Android TV device from Xiaomi would have better specs. While I am 100% sure that the performance will be absolutely great, it would have been very appreciated if Xiaomi updated the specs to a more 2020 device. Let’s just hope that as with the Nvidia Shield TV 2019, we will see a PRO version by Xiaomi too.

In any case, as the previous Mi Box S has been one of our best Android TV Box devices, we are confident that Xiaomi will not disappoint us with this new model.

TiVo Stream 4K

The Android TV-powered TiVo Stream 4K was originally expected to launch with a $50 promotional pricing this April. It offers an Android TV experience that’s all about live TV and also uses some changes to Android TV than we’d usually see, including a proper channel surfing experience.

Originally, TiVo announced the Stream 4K to arrive in April 2020, but that date has come and gone. Speaking to TVTechnology recently (via ZatzNotFunny), TiVo confirmed the Stream 4K would be at least slightly delayed, set to arrive “in the next few weeks”.

While it is possible this could be related to coronavirus production issues that also other companies have faced this period, TiVo hasn’t released any further information. In any case, here at Dimitrology.com we’re still pretty excited to test out this new Android TV dongle for ourselves. We’ll keep you updated on when it’s officially released.

Android TV Box Certified By Google

The Mecool KM1 TV Box is a Google certified Android TV device that just hit the market. With the latest specs and great performance is on sale right for a very competitive price. It comes in three variations:

  • 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage which sales for $79.99 after using the coupon 4PGLDAIK,
  • 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage saling for $72.99 after using the coupon 4PGLGIYM and the
  • 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage with a super-low price of just $58.99 after using the coupon 4PGM1BCP
Mecool KM1 S905X3

Mecool KM1 Specs

What is great about the Mecool KM1 is the fact that unlike the Xiaomi Mi Box S, it is powered by a brand-new and powerful CPU and GPU. In fact the device comes with the Amlogic S905X3 a very powerful CPU that can easily play 4K UHD up to 60 fps. Also powerful the GPU which can not only playback any given video format but allows you to play in an excellent manner any Android game. Another great feature is the optimal WiFi, supports 2GHz and 5Ghz -that’s Dual Band WiFi for faster internet connection! It is also faster than any traditional Dual Band WiFi since it is a 2T2R module with 2 antennas for even faster connections. And then we have the USB 3.0 that allows you to connect any compatible external HD and USB drive so you can elevate your experience with super fast speeds, unlike the old USB 2.0 that now days serves only for connections like a mouse, keyboard, gamepads and remotes. in the specifics, we find 1 x USB 3.0, 1 X USB 2.0, a micro SD card slot, HDMI port, a 10/100M Ethernet port and an AV output. Also included the Bluetooth module version 4.2 so you can attach even more devices.

Mecool KM1 Remote Control

Another excellent point to be added: the included remote control. An already amazing remote, very similar to the Mi Box S and the previous Mecool models, now has 3 dedicated buttons: Youtube, Amazon Prime Video and Google Play are away just a click! And of course the dedicated button for Google Assistance is always there since the remote has also a built-in microphone for voice commands.

Video Playback

As you may suspect if you are more tech savvy, the Mecool KM1 with this SoC is a great piece of a media center. It can play any given video format with the default player or even KODI. And it also supports 4K Ultra HD on Youtube, 4K UHD also on Amazon Prime Video too! Not the same luck with Netflix since as we know, Netflix is not allowing a lot of devices to use their 4K license even though the lower resolutions are also supported and you can use Netflix too. HDR playback is also great, given of course that you have a TV that supports such technology.

Conclusion

Given that this Android 9 Pie Mecool KM1 comes with all the best for the price, in my opinion is a great device to get, especially considering the price after the coupon discount. Be sure to check all three versions even though for the price, I would go for the Mecool KM1 4GB / 64GB which appears also the most future-proof too. The offer is time limited so make sure to grab one now!

What’s the difference between Android TV, Android TV Box and Fire TV? In the following video we talk about the differences of these so close but also different Android streaming devices that are so popular. They all share basically the same operating system, Android OS by Google but it comes in three different styles. Users can be very confused by these three different devices and selecting the correct one is usually a hard task. Also there is a lot of confusion when we talk about Android TV and Android TV Boxes. And while Fire TV by Amazon seems so different, is it really?

Get the Best Apple TV Feature on Android TV and Android TV Box for free! When it comes to cosmetics, Apple is perhaps the best and this awesome feature is one of my preferred on an Apple TV 4K. But now, with this free to use Android app we can have the same feature also on Android TV OS devices like the Nvidia Shield TV and the Xiaomi Mi Box S as well as on any Android TV Box.

Best Apple TV Feature: Screensaver

The amazing Aerial Dream application offers the fantastic Apple TV Screensaver to your Android TV device. The screensaver videos are offered in Full HD 1080p resolution but also in UHD 4K resolution. Just enter inside the settings and you can select whether you want to use the Full HD or the 4K videos. Also you can choose from the screensaver from the different Apple TV models: Apple TV 2019, Apple TV 2018, Apple TV 2017 and Apple TV 2015.

The only negative in my opinion is that the videos are always streamed from the Apple server. That means that you consume bandwidth when your device is in screensaver mode. Not an issue for me since I have a broadband connection but if your connection has data limits it may cause high traffic.

*Please note*: Aerial Dream streams videos constantly and will consume large amounts of bandwidth. Do not install on devices with limited network connectivity.

A screensaver for Android devices inspired on Apple TV’s video screensaver

Currently the displayed videos are the exact same used by Apple TV. Though the videos are relatively small (below 200MB), it’s still recommended that you have an appropriate internet plan so that you do not incur in extra costs. Most home or WiFi connections should be ok, while mobile data could be a problem. The videos are hosted by Apple Inc. openly and without any sort of encryption or other form of protection, therefore this use is assumed to be legitimate.
If you have reason to believe otherwise please let me know.

How to set Aerial Dream as your screensaver

  • Go into the System Preferences
  • Select Display
  • Select Daydream
  • Select Aerial Dream
