Methods to install and set up an Stb Emulator
You have to start the process by installing an STB emulator. It is a straightforward task to accomplish. You just need to google play store from your android MXQ box, run a search for an emulator and click to install it.
After you are done with the installation, you just need to follow the steps given below.
Things that you will be needing
- An IPTV service package
- Portal URL: This is a link IPTV will provide you with when you purchase a package.
- Mac address: This can be taken to your packaging box, or you can ask it from your service provider.
The steps are as follows:
Step 1: Open your installed application. It will start with a dialog box; click to configure the application.
Step 2: Then the settings menu will pop up; take your cursor to the profile option and click it.
If your screen shows something like this, then just left-click on the top right corner of the screen and again navigate to settings.
Step 3: Then click on the profile name option and type a new name, and ok to confirm.
Step4: Change the current name to the IPTV service provider you are currently using with your device.
Step 5: Then navigate over to portal settings and click on it.
Step 6: Then click on the portal URL and delete the existing one.
Step 7: Each IPTV service comes with a unique portal URL that needs to be typed or copied in the box provided. Enter or copy that in here.
Step 8: Next, navigate to the STB configuration.
Step 9: Then select the Stb emulator model that you are using.
Step 10:Next select the MXQ android box version that you are currently using to emulate. The MXQ box will also come from your IPTV service provider. If you are still facing a problem, then select the one with the highest compatibility.
Step 11:Then select the screen resolution.
Step 12:Click over to set the screen resolution to automatic if you are unsure about your television resolution.
Step 13: Then search and select the MAC address
Step 14: Then enter your given unique MAC address. This can be acquired from another MXQ box packaging, or the IPTV service can provide you with one if you ask for it.
Step 15: Then click on the given serial number.

Step 17: At this stage, press out and click EXIT
Step 18: Wait for a few minutes for the emulator to load up the settings. Then relaunch or reopen your Stb emulator.

This is the whole process of installing and setting the Stb firmware on the MXQ box, and you can change it as per your need or reinstall or uninstall if you are facing problems. Also, you can try other Stb applications available on the play store for a broader and far better experience if you are unhappy with the one you used. Just keep in mind to use a VPN to navigate and search geo-restricted context to hide your online presence and see overseas content because you might get tracked.
