BASTARDS!

The only thing I have noticed is my recordings and VOD seem to start a little faster. The long pause at the beginning is gone. But that also might be attributed to the new mod :cool:

Hmmmmmm I just started up a Disney Jr On Demand show for my children and it started out with 2 ads :eek:

No ads on the first show I tried.

The 2nd show (with the ads) was Mickey and the Roadster Racers S2E16.

Also, I tried a couple different episodes of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and the app crashed :confused:
I couldn't get the ads to show up , but the clubhouse episodes are definitely causing the app to crash

Now I cant even load the shows or any stream very strange, if you have a blank show thumbnail it will crash the app

Oh and just so you know if the ad is built into the video that will show up, if you come across any like that

I just tested a couple Disney VOD. They had AD's embedded into the stream, but I could fast-forward through them.

Yup, I see that some Disney Shows still have ADs. I'll research some more this weekend.

Does the Non-ADrem_root version crash too?

I loaded up some PJ Masks. It started without ads but ads showed up when it auto-advanced to the next episode at the end.

So my Shield updated to 7.2.3

I opened up the latest DTVnow HBR_Adremov_root and it would not start. Couldn't find location. I toggled the location/storage permissions several times, turned Wifi on/off several times, rebooted the Shield and no go.

Installed GPS Spoof and it's back to working.

Clear cache under apps. Uninstall. Then reinstall

Worked. What happened?
Making sure I understand. You got it working? Correct?

Sometimes the apps just need to be "settled in" after a system update. If there isn't a newer version of the app, the cache just needs to be cleared and app reinstalled.

I will help for sure. I'm sure someone on here will let you borrow things to test so we can keep this project going forward!

    Welcome to the most extensive AT&T TV (formerly DirecTV Now) and Fire TV repository thread.

    Over the last few years I have gathered various AT&T/DirecTV Now apks and other Fire TV apks.
    My plan is to continue uploading the latest AT&T TV apk files and various Fire TV apps until they are officially available on the Shield TV.

    Feel free to comment and request any Fire TV apks that I have not uploaded , I'll do my best to keep the apps up-to-date.
    Since it's time consuming I may not update the less popular apps frequently. Unless someone requests it.

    I want to thank anyone that contributed to the previous thread. Please continue to post any questions or issues you guys have .

    Please read the FAQ some of your questions may already be answered.

    Hey everyone,

    Good news! I figured out how to get high bitrate steams for the DirecTV Now app.

    TLDR: I decompiled the modified apk, found Bitrate settings, increased them to match higher end devices, recompiled.

    ACHILLES R32, I can provide instructions if you want to start incorporating high bitrate versions of the DirecTV Now apk. Otherwise I'd be happy to compile new versions (but it will add a bit of delay if I'm not available).

    Download High Bitrate APKs Here

    Longer version:
    For the last ~2 months I've been using the DirecTV Now Beta streaming box (Osprey). I was lucky to receive and test one for free. The video quality on the beta box is noticeably better, but it's obvious the Shield is a more powerful streaming device. The Apple TV and higher end Fire devices also offer higher quality, so this got me thinking that there must be a way to enable the same quality on the shield. I decompiled the modified apk, which comes from the Fire TV. Inside the files, I noticed profiles for each of the Fire devices and each one had varying levels of Bitrate quality settings. Since we are installing this apk on non-Fire devices, the device name will not match up and it reverts to the Default Bitrate settings. The default bitrates are low (6000000 for live tv) while higher end devices use a setting of 20000000. I increased the default bitrates for live tv, DVR, and VOD. After recompiling and installing, the quality is much better!

    I'm not aware of any way to view video bitrate statistics on the Shield or in the DirecTV App. So my crude way of testing bitrate is to monitor network traffic for 1 minute in my router, for each device. I've linked screenshots for shield low bitrate, shield high bitrate, and the beta (Osprey) box for comparison. You can clearly see the amount of data used is closer to the Osprey.
