How to make your television connected


For several years we have been working to find solutions to make any television set connected to the internet.

The Smart TV, a High-Tech product, was born, but there are also multimedia box models with various operating systems like Android TV box, also called: Android TV, TV box, box TV, TV box Android, box Android TV or box TV Android who have brought better momentum and solutions to the replacement of smart televisions.

Multimedia boxes have become very popular. Today, they provide access to all Android applications, including video games downloadable from the Google Play Store.

These multimedia gateways are placed between the content to be seen in streaming and the television set without the need for a TV decoder.

Generally, we choose one of the paid media servers which offers streaming services like the best known Netflix and Molotov.

The connection requires the presence of:

- a television,
- an HDMI cable as a connector,
- and the ADSL box directly or through a Wi-Fi repeater.

To have very good image and sound quality, you will need:

- a broadband internet connection from an internet box,
- a storage medium such as an SD card, a hard drive or Blu-ray,
- a multimedia keyboard for gamers,
- possibly high definition, Full HD or UHD on a large screen TV.

Several of these multimedia boxes which are, by the way, mini PCs or miniature computers, are connected by:

- Ethernet port (Gigabit) using an RJ45 cable,
- Wi-Fi internet access,
- By CPL.

For the first case, this type of connection offers a very reliable speed and remains high. For the second case, reliability depends on the distance between the Wi-Fi router and the multimedia box.

Whatever the case, access to streaming content and TV channels with legal IPTV if necessary, is done without going through a digital receiver. It is also possible to have TNT, read files and view almost everything. It should be noted that, as with a computer, internal memory and random access memory play a large role.

It allows you to stream content from the Chrome browser, from the Android phone, or from compatible applications.

Hundreds apps are available for these boxes under Android system. Some are free, but the price for most is quite high compared to other devices.

Solutions like the Fire TV Stick from Amazon are starting to emerge. The Amazon Fire TV is a box, multimedia adapter that allows easy access to the content of several companies offering movies and TV series on the internet and especially YouTube.

The Fire TV comes with a remote control. Its installation is simple. It plugs directly into the television and works via the Internet.

During installation, the user is guided step by step. There is even a video presentation. The content to watch is diverse.

Nvidia Shield TV

This multimedia TV, partner of Kodi known for its Media center has been considered the Must in its category since the release of the first copy in 2015.

The recent version is streaming like other devices but in addition, Nvidia took advantage of its own manufacture of graphics cards to make the Shield a game console. It can be sold with a joystick. It is a multimedia server with impeccable audio and video, a voice assistant and a digital recorder.

On the entertainment side, you can:

- easy access to movies and TV series, games and favorite music,
- follow live sporting events,
- watch 4K HDR content on Netflix and Amazon with great sound reproduction,
- use voice commands.

But who says Nvidia, says graphics card so game. So the Shield is a game console that will probably forget the big gaming machines too expensive.

The Dolby standards (Surround 7.1, True HD, Atmos) are adopted by the Shield.

The Shield TV is compatible with Plex Media Server and Kodi and in addition, it is equipped with 2 USB 3.0 ports for key USB.

The components

How to plug in your box

A multimedia box is above all a connected device, something which already has the advantage compared to several television sets which are not smarts. Thus, if it is mounted on an old television, it makes it a connected product. Its connection is simple and the distribution is done by internet, by Wi-Fi or by PLC.
