Hi my father bought an Android box but he doesn't know how to configure it. Is there a way I can remotely connect to it so that I can do it for him? I'm living in Sweden and he's in Cyprus.

I've installed SPMC on my one and done a custom build which should suit him for things he watches (football, Greek and UK) which I have backed up, so just want to do a restore (I'm assuming) on his!

Sorry if I posted in the wrong place for this.

Do a search here on the forum, it's been discussed before.
if your dad is not good with electronics maybe it wasn't the best idea to get a box. these things are not like a cable box, where you just pay your bill and flip channels. unless he is willing to put in some time and learn the hobby.?

One sure way is to have him mail you the box, you fix it up then mail it back. That's how I take care of my brother's android in NY. Once a year we do this.

You could always ask the kodi forum about remote access, see what they say. There may be info on the kodi wiki also.

Really this is an addon forum, if you want help with SA*TS this is the place.

He might be better off sending your the box so you can set it up. While setting it up, install Team Viewer on his box and your PC. Team Viewer will allow you to take over his box if he runs into a snag.

However, I am with Fracl on this. If he can't or won't learn how to set it up himself, this is likely not for him.

Make sure you and Dad have same Backup add-on.
Backup your setup.
Email it to your Dad or put it on a server.
Tell your Dad to save it to a USB stick.
Tell him to Restore from the USB.

If that is beyond his technical capabilities then he might want to consider a different hobby.

Thanks for the replies. Using it wont be a problem, its mainly so he can watch some football. Maybe i'll see if my sister can help him (whilst I upload the setup to a server) and I can viber her to talk her through.

Thanks again:)

there's a reasonable chance that teamviewer is allready installed ...you should be able to talk him through firing that up and then you can take over...

failing that get him a box with a sports build allready on it :rolleyes:
