Hi follks..

I have an M8S+ android box loaded with Kodi and it has been working great, but all of a sudden as of late I loose the functionality of all my addons and when I started looking more into it the date has changed. I unplug the device and change the year to current year..and bam.. all works good again.

This last a couple of weeks and the year changes again.

Any ideas? Is there an internal battery that could be toast?

Thanks for your help..

there is no battery but there should be a setting to set your time zone. if i remember right that should keep your time settings. but dont freak out if you unplug your box then plug it back in and your time is off again. just give it a minute and it should reset to the proper time. there may be another setting i'm forgetting so look around in your time settings. ooops. your talking about the date. ok i just checked mine. make sure auto date and time are set. just put a check in the box after you set your time and date.

The Box is clearly defective
Either deal with the problem or smash it and pick up a new one
They are cheap enough anyhow
