If you are having any issues with your FOMOstream® Android TV Box, these troubleshooting tips should help you determine the cause.
Kodi Content Won’t Play Or Load
If your FOMOstream® Android TV Box is not playing content from Kodi, this means that you are either clicking on broken links or add-ons, or it means that your internet connection has been compromised on the FOMOstream® box… even if it says ‘connected’ you are still getting internet connectivity to your other devices.
First thing, do a SpeedTest on the FOMOstream® Android TV Box to make sure that isn’t the issue. Most of the time this is the cause of the problem. Instructions for the SpeedTest can be found here…
If you find your internet download speeds to be lower than expected or need, you should power cycle your internet modem and then do another speed test. That means you unplug your modem for at least 30 seconds before plugging it back in. Then do another speed test to see if that improved your speeds. This is common maintenance for anyone using their modem for Wifi especially.
After you verify that it’s not an issue with the internet download speed going to your FOMOstream® box, we recommend checking to ensure you have the newest FOMO Build installed. This is done through the FomoWizard. Your FomoWizard should be already installed but if not, you can install it via our FOMO Repo…
You may also want to try to Force An Add-on Update:
If you are still having issues, try powering the box off and back on.
If the above steps don’t work you can be sure then that it’s just an issue with the particular Kodi Add-on or link you are trying to access. Links and Add-on break from time to time. We have no control over this because FOMOstream® doesn’t host or maintain any of the content within each Kodi Add-ons. Each Kodi add-on is independently maintained by other 3rd party enthusiasts.
If you can’t find what you are looking for in one Kodi add-on, or if it’s not playing, simply look in another Kodi add-on with similar content. We feature many add-ons for each category so that if one becomes broken, you can find numerous other add-ons to use in its replacement. Odds are that the add-on or link you were originally trying to access is only temporarily down. If any Add-on remains broken or has too many broken links, we will remove it in the next Server Update.
Content Keeps Buffering
If you find that your content doesn’t play smoothly without buffering, it is related to your internet download speed going to your FOMOstream® box. Please do a speed test on the FOMOstream® Android TV Box. Instructions for the SpeedTest can be found here…
We recommend at least 15 to 28mbps download speed going to your FOMOstream® box for an ideal experience and preferably 69mbps or more to watch Live TV or any high-definition films without buffering.
If you can not improve your internet speed, there is a workaround. Simply pause the show or movie you are trying to watch for 5 mins are longer to let the buffering catch up before hitting play. You can also choose a link further down the list that may be easier to stream.
You may also want to Power Cycle your modem as we explain how-to-do above.
