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 on a regular basis. 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:
- Go to ‘Settings’.
- Select ‘System Update’.
- Click ‘OK’ if you see a notification that says the device has the latest software version.
- Click ‘Update’ if a new software version is available.

What is the MAG425A’s first-launch setup like?
If the MAG425A 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 MAG425A 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.
Is Android TV better than AOSP?
Android TV developers have made the OS as user-friendly as it can be. 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 Google Play Store's catalog of about 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 have no means of changing 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. IPTV/OTT services can be additionally ordered whenever you need them.
If I buy the MAG425A, what do I get for my money?
The MAG425A is very economical. With an Android 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 IPTV box MAG425A is truly a top Android TV device. Enjoy the very best viewing experience.
Is there a full MAG425A review?
Certainly! We recently published a complete MAG425A review that you can read. In summary, the MAG425A 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 MAG425A 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 MAG425A’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.
