    Hi,

    I have an amlogic mxq pro android tv box.

    Today I tried the Youtube live tv trial. It works fine on my computer, but on the android tv box, it won't let me sign in. It brins up the screen with my gmail. Then I can either choose the gmail account, or add a new one. No matter which I pick, if I press the OK button, nothing happens.

    How can I even log in?

    Than ks for your thoughts!

    Well I guess this is the answer:
    "1) Very limited devices. There is no app for Android TV which just doesn't make sense. I side-loaded it on my TV but they purposely made the app so remotes could not control it and it is stuck in Portrait mode. Basically phones, tablets and chromecasts. It makes it hard with families with little kids that might not be able to cast from a tablet to a TV all the time."

    From: YouTube TV FAQ: Everything you need to know!

    Except now they do have an app that can be directly installed, and my remote still can't control it.
