The very best of 4K HDR 60fps

MAG500A plunges you into the world of realistic 4K images: its 60fps frame rate reveals its true potential. The device sweeps the viewer right in the middle of events, as the high dynamic range (HDR) provides natural color rendering in light and dark scenes.1


Chromecast built-in

Go from your smartphone, tablet, PC, or laptop to your TV in an instant. With Chromecast built-in, you can cast all your favorite TV shows, apps, movies, games, and more directly to your big screen. No need for additional accessories and dongles: the set-top box and your mobile device just need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.


HEVC (h.265) technology

Thanks to HEVC (h.265), high-quality content is available also for users with slow Internet speeds. Viewing 4K videos (60 fps, h.264) requires a 32 Mbps connection, while for h.265, a speed of 15 Mbps is all that is needed. The minimum speed required for HD and Full HD playback is also halved.2

Frequently asked questions:

How can you tell the quality of a set-top box?

All Android TV devices pass mandatory testing and are certified by Google, which assesses the solution's software and hardware components. If the device meets Google's stringent standards, the manufacturer is added by Google to the list of Android TV Partners, and its logo is featured on Android TV's official website.

Before buying a set-top box, make sure to check if its manufacturer is listed among the Android TV partners and the model among Google-certified devices.


Do I need a Google account?

You can use an Android TV device without a Google account. However, you will need to create one if you want personalized recommendations: the OS will analyze your interests and suggest videos that may interest you.



Why update the firmware?

Infomir updates its products regularly. By frequently testing equipment and gathering user feedback, the company can detect and troubleshoot potential bugs in its firmware. After each firmware update, the set-top box runs more smoothly.

The updates are delivered automatically, but you can check for them manually, too. Here's what you need to do:


  1. Go to ‘Settings’.
  2. Select ‘System Update’.
  3. Click ‘OK’ if you see a notification that says the device has the latest software version.
  4. Click ‘Update’ if a new software version is available.


What are the MAG500A specs like? Are they high enough to play all of my videos?

The MAG500A is powerful enough to play almost all high-res videos. It boasts a powerful quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor with a frequency of 1 900 MHz, an Amlogic S905X2 chipset, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal storage, which can be expanded with an external HDD, SSD, flash drive, or local storage. To see all the specifications, click on the “Additional Info” button.



What is the MAG500A’s first-launch setup like?

If the MAG500A is your first set-top box, you might want to check out our detailed guide to learn how to launch and set it up.



What do you need to know to connect to IPTV?

Choose operators that broadcast only legal content. Such operators develop their apps and make them available on the Google Play Store. Therefore, by installing an app through the Google Play Store, you are guaranteed to get high-quality content.



What are the languages supported by voice input?

The Google Assistant available on certified Android TV devices supports voice input in 12 languages: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Swedish, Portuguese, Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese, Indonesian, and Hindi.



The MAG500A remote's power-saving mode

Infomir added a power-saving mode to make sure that the batteries in your remote last as long as possible. The remote goes to standby mode if you don't use it for some time while watching TV. You can wake it up by pressing any button. After that, it will work as usual.

1. A compatible TV is required for 4K HDR content playback.

2. Not all streaming services deliver HEVC content.

3. A TV or home theater supporting Dolby Digital Plus is required.

Is Android TV better than AOSP?

Android TV developers have made the OS as user-friendly as possible. Therefore, Android TV has some advantages over its predecessor AOSP.

  • Android TV devices get access to Google services, e.g., Google Assistant and YouTube, as well as the Google Play Store's catalog of around 5,000 apps.
  • Reliability and quality: Google specialists test all Android TV devices. If the set-top box passes all tests, it is added to the list of officially certified models.
  • Android TV devices get feature and security updates from the manufacturer for 3–4 years.
  • The apps in the Google Play Store catalog are optimized for large screens.

Google allows the installation of Android TV only on high-quality devices, thoroughly testing every model. Operators cannot adapt or change the OS functionality—it is a proprietary system, and they have no access to its source code.

AOSP is an open-source OS: providers are free to extend its functionality without negotiating it with Google. Experts forecast that Android TV devices will dominate the global market in a few years.



Do I need to connect to an IPTV/OTT provider?

Having an IPTV/OTT operator is not required to use Android TV. You will still be able to use YouTube, streaming apps, subscription services, and games. Additional IPTV/OTT services can be ordered whenever you need them.



If I buy the MAG500A, what do I get for my money?

The MAG500A is very economical. With an Android TV set-top box like this, you don’t have to buy a Smart TV to get access to applications and 3D games on your TV, you can turn any TV with an HDMI input into a ‘smart’ TV.

Smart TVs often carry a hefty price tag simply because they carry the label “smart”. By using an Android TV device such as this along with your non-smart (or dumb) TV, you could enjoy a top-quality entertainment system at a greatly reduced cost.

Since most 4K set-top boxes cost in the area of $100, and a high-end Smart TV would be several times more than that, you would get the most bang for your buck by getting an Android set-top box. Thanks to features such as 4K 60fps, HDR, and a built-in HEVC codec, the MAG500A is truly a top Android TV device. Enjoy the very best viewing experience.


Is there a full MAG500A review?

Certainly! We recently published a complete MAG500A review that you can read. In summary, the MAG500A was deemed an excellent choice for 4K streaming and undemanding 3D games. One of the device’s biggest advantages is its Ethernet port for a wired Internet connection, something which is greatly appreciated in apartment buildings, where lots of different Wi-Fi networks interfere with each other. The MAG500A Android box is a universal set-top box that is suitable for both casual and advanced users.



How is the remote's firmware updated?

The MAG500A’s firmware is updated automatically. The set-top box checks for updates once powered on and repeats the check every 12 hours. If an update is detected, the user gets a notification about it.

You can check for updates manually, too: just push any button on the remote repeatedly while the set-top box boots up. It will activate the update service. There is also a manual update option in the STB settings.
