    Tools Section

    1.\ The "Cache Cleaner" get it HERE
    mobi.infolife.cache-2.apk (Side Load)


    Instructions:

    Go to the Settings area of the Cache Cleaner app and check mark ALL the blocks, exit the app ..... The Cache Cleaner app will now auto clean your Co-Star's Cache and every time you manually open the cache Cleaner app it will also auto clean your Co-Star's cache ...

    (It's Good To Manually Open The Cache Cleaner App From Time To Time) ...... Set the "Auto Cleaning Interval" to ever hour (1 Hour) ....

    2.\ ES File Explorer get it here (No Side Loading Required) https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...Ryb2lkLnBvcCJd .....


    .3\ System Tuner get it here (USE THIS TOOL AS A TASK MANAGER ONLY FOR ADVANCE USERS) (NO Side Loading Required) https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...NjYzcxLnBtdyJd .....

    4.\
    Another awesome tool that I have installed on my Co-Star is the "Uninstaller" App by Rhythm.Hexise, this brings up all the apps on your Co-Star in one place for fast and easy uninstalling of any app that's on your Co-Star, get the FREE "Uninstaller" App HERE http://www.mediafire.com/?y7iiyi9n92bokw5 ..... (Side Load)




    "*VIZIO CO-STAR BETTER TO HAVE HIGH MAINTENANCE TOOLS*" (Via Side Loaded)




    *Most of the Co-Star apps on the CO-Star like Plex, YouTube, Netflix ...ect and lots of other apps on the Co-Star have the fastest largest cache build up ... It's a known fact, if the huge cache build up is left unnoticed, it will cause your Co-Star to operate in a highly erratic minor ...

    In the second photo above is the "Setting" area of the Cache Cleaner app, notice I have ALL the Settings blocks check marked ... This is how I control the large cache build up, when using certain apps like Netflix, Plex, YouTube, Google Movies & TV, GTVBox and PlayPoint .... By chance if you cannot access Google Play Store to get the FREE Cache Cleaner App, then get it HERE mobi.infolife.cache-2.apk .....

    *HDMI CABLES: USE HDMI CABLES 1.4 ONLY WITH YOUR NEW VIZIO CO-STAR AND (CAT #6) ETHERNET CABLES ONLY*
    (Save Yourself A Lot Of headaches)


    You can think of HDMI 1.4 as the successor to 1.3. Specifically, it adds 4 new features to your HDMI connection:



    1) Higher resolution capabilities (allowing for Ultra High Definition 4K x 2K which is about 6x the resolution of 1080p) .....
    2) Support for 3D video at 1080p with compatible Blu-Ray Players, Set-top Boxes, PCs and TVs ....
    3) Audio Return channel allowing audio from an HDMI 1.4 TV to be passed back to the receiver though the HDMI cable rather than having to run a separate audio cable to the TV .....
    4) Ethernet link channel allowing all of your HDMI 1.4 devices to connect to the Internet though an existing HDMI cable provided that just one of your 1.4 devices is connected to the Internet via Ethernet or WiFi .....



    [​IMG]

    Also, an important point to note, is HDMI pass-through means that the receiver simply passes the video signal on exactly as it receives it with no modification or processing whatsoever ...

    C.\ The Vizio CO-Star Remote Control


    *PLEASE NOTE: By Default The Vizio Co-Star Remote"Touch Pad/Pointer Combo" (CURSOR) Is Out Of The Box "OverClocked" (TO FAST), Most Buyers Of The Co-Star Don't Know This ... *This Is One Of The BIGGEST Reasons Why Most Buyers Of The Co-Star Want To Return Their New Co-Star ....

    *Not Knowing The "Touch Pad/Pointer Combo" (CURSOR) Speeds Can Be Adjusted With Ease (SLOWER/LOWERED) To PinPoint Stop On A Dime Accuracy To Work In Complete Harmony With The Built In On Board Chrome Web Browser (See The Adjustment Scale In The Photo Above) ...

    *"Touch Pad/Pointer Combo" (CURSOR) Set Up Instructions:

    My advice, first test/play with the "Touch Pad/Pointer Combo" (CURSOR) without making any changes, and see how awkward it is to control the pointer (Cursor) with pinpoint accuracy, when using it with the chrome web browser ...

    Most people think this is the way the Co-Star remote control "Touch Pad/Pointer Combo" (CURSOR) was made to work, which is NOT true ...

    *Go To Settings> Devices> Pointer> Pointer Settings (Change pointer speed settings) >*To set up the "Touch Pad/Pointer Combo" (CURSOR) to pinpoint accuracy use the speed level scale in the photo above, let the blue scale line past the letter "d" in the above word Speed by a "Quarter Inch", TAP ON SAVE, that's it ....


    *The Keyboard Side Of The Vizio Co-Star Remote:

    Give yourself time to adjust to the feel of the keyboard, be patient, human error is the cause of sticky keys, not the keyboard itself ... Holding the keys in to long will cause run on letters ect.... rrrrrrrrr, but noting is wrong with the keyboard .....

    This is why you will have to be patient and get used to the two sided remote, flip/control it in your hand in a way that feels good to you, until you master the remote ...

    2.\ A Cooling Fan


    :[​IMG]

    Keep your Vizio Co-Star COOL all the time, via the Onn Laptop Cooling Fan ...! The above photo is what it looks like with the Co-Star setting directly over the cooling fan hole, Onn Laptop Cooling Pad - Walmart.com .... The 4 port USB hub is called the "USB MAN", sold at Walmart also .... Works Like a charm ....!

    * Understand this now, do not connect you USB fan to any USB connection port to the
    Vizio Co-Star for "POWER", this is a no, no ... Connecting your USB fan to the Vizio Co-Star for "POWER" will cause it to work/play video/audio in a erratic minor ...(THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT)

    *PLEASE NOTE: I DON'T BELIEVE THE POWER PULL OF THE USB FAN HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE ERRATIC BEHAVIOR (I Could Be Wrong) ....

    FOR REASONS UNKNOWN TO ME, THE USB PORT LOOKS FOR USB FLASH DIRVES, KEYBOARDS/MOUSE TYPE USB DEVICES ... THE CO-STAR WILL WORK OK WITH THESE TYPES OF USB DEVICES, BUT IT WILL NOT WORK WELL WITH USB POWER PULLING DEVICES ... WHY I DON'T KNOW...!

    The Easiest Way To Side Load Apps On To Your Vizio Co-Star
    [​IMG]


    SET UP: VIA DROPBOX, YOUR HOME PC/Laptop AND YOUR NEW VIZIO CO-STAR

    1.\ Install DropBox First On Your Home PC/Laptop, (DOWNLOAD PC/LAPTOP VERSION HERE) https://www.dropbox.com/downloading , before Installing The *Dropbox.apk On Your new Vizio Co-Star (Read Simple Instructions Below)

    2.\ On Your Co-Star Go To *Settings> *Applications> *Unknown Sources And Make Sure It's Check Marked

    3.\ As soon as you can, purchase the app "Orientation Control" from the Google Play Store and set the app parameter to the "Landscape" mode, this is a "Must Go To Do", if you are going to continue side loading apps to your Vizio Co-Star ...



    The easiest way to side load apps on to your Co-Star is via the dropbox installed on your Co-Star and your home PC/Laptop ... You must send the dropbox.apk file, get it HERE https://www.dropbox.com/android or HERE http://www.mediafire.com/?3tfczy2uoa9uoct (New 2.2 Version) to your Co-Star via your Gmail account to yourself ... You will have to access your Gmail account via the Chrome web browser on your Co-Star, just login, you will see the dropbox.apk email, that you sent to yourself ... Open the dropbox.apk email, tap on the word "Download" in blue, until you see the message "Download Started" ...

    After about 45 to 60 seconds go to the "Download app located in the Apps Screen section" and finish installing the dropbox.apk to your Co-Star .... As you know from then on you must have the Dropbox PC version installed on your PC/Laptop first and foremost, which you should have already installed on your PC/laptop ....

    When you have completed the installation of the dropbox.apk on your Co-Star, from this point on, all the apps you want to side load on to your Co-Star must be installed FIRST to your PC/Laptop dropbox and the apps will auto uploaded to your dropbox on your Co-Star ...

    Open the dropbox app on your Co-Star. and scroll down, tap on the app you want to install to your Co-Star and follow the simple installation instructions, that's it .....


    *PLEASE NOTE: If by chance you have to do a hard reset on your Vizio Co-Star in the future, ALL of your Vizio Co-Star (Side Load) apps will still be in one place/location for easy access to reinstall very fast if needed, think about it now .... They are other ways to do this to, but this way is smooth as butter and silk too ...!(lol)


    *Another easy method for (Side Loading Apps To The Vizio Co-Star), open up an account at any free file hosting website like http://www.mediafire.com and upload the APK app you want to install on your Co-Star to your Choosen file hosting website ... Next download the APK app from your choosen file hosting website that you want to install to your Vizio Co-Star via the Google chrome web browser that's on your Vizio Co-Star ..... Now install the APK app using ES File Explorer, simple and easy (Thanks To Snowglyder) ....​

    VPN options for Vizio Co-Star: Thanks To "MarDukeme"


    Here is any easy way to connect your gtv box to a vpn. I have the Sony gtv box but it should be the same for the costar. This procedure is written for Windows 7, since that is what I have.

    1. On your PC connect to your vpn service
    2. Open up Network & Sharing Center
    3. Click on the vpn's "Local Area Connection" link. Probably be called "Local Area Connection 2"
    4. Click on the box called "Properties"
    5. Select the "Sharing" tab at the top
    6. Make sure both boxes are checked off here
    7. Click the "OK" then "Close" buttons

    By default Windows will change your IP address on your local LAN to something else. We have to fix this now.

    8. Back in Network and Sharing Center click the "Local Area Connection" link
    9. Click on the box called "Properties"
    10. Double click "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
    11. Select Us the following IP address.
    12. Enter a valid static ip within your network. For example 192.168.1.10. I used ten because my router is .1 so basically add a 0 to it. Subnet Mask is usually 255.255.255.0. Default gateway is your routers IP address probably 192.168.1.1. For the DNS server add your routers IP address or any other dns settings you prefer.
    13. Click the "OK" then "Close" box
    This last step is done on your gtv box
    14. Go to Settings menu --> Network --> Ethernet or Wi-Fi depending on which you are using.
    15. If using Wi-Fi long press your connection an select "Modify Network" scroll down and change your settings to static.
    16. Enter a valid IP address from your network.
    17. Under Gateway enter the IP address your PC which you entered under "Local Area Connection" not your VPN IP address. THIS IS IMPORTANT IT HAS TO BE THE SAME AS YOUR LAN.
    18. Network prefix length is usually 24. DNS is your routers IP address. Click the "Save" button
    19. Now turn you WiFi OFF then back ON, otherwise the settings will not take.

    That's it, you are done. Go check your IP online to see if it changed to your vpn's ip on your gtv box. IF not make sure your saved your ip info correctly on your gtv box.

    To disconnect your gtv box from your vpn change your gateway address back to your routers IP address. An remember to disconnect and reconnect your connection for the settings to take affect.

    [h=2][​IMG] Tips and Tricks to make your Co-Star Experience Better[/h]
    1. Make sure your firmware is up to date (ver. 3.5 released 12/12/12)
    2. TNT OT on nba.com streams some nice quality basketball games so search for that.
    3. Download amo Navi-X from the Play Store. It's worth the little 2-3 bucks you pay. Almost unlimited amount of content.
    4. Google search "Aptoide" in your Co Stars browser and download it, its an app market that let's you install what you want. (Make sure app is compatible)
    5. You can go to 4shared.com, sign up if you haven't already and download apks straight from your browser.
    6. The Co Star is compatible with the Playstation 3 so you can HDMI out it and do PIP (picture in picture) with it, *Google search, check emails or do whatever you want to do while gaming lol* Settings>Video and Audio Devices>Blu-Ray Player. Type the brand "Sony" and when they ask you for a model number type in PS3. They will ask another question just say yes and viola, your PS3 and Co-Star are now a tandem! *You still have to use the PS3 controller to navigate around but the Co Star does control its Blu-Ray basic functions.
    If you find a website that you like that has streaming content or whatever, go to your options in the Chrome browser and save it to your homepage. It turns the link into an app sorta.

    Hope this helps somebody!​

    [h=2]Vizio Co-Star v4.6.0 GTV3 Upscaled Again Via Serviio 1.2.1 With AC3 5.1 Digital Audio[/h]

    [​IMG]

    Their has been a lot of discussion conecrning movies with AC3 5.1 audio format working on the new Vizio Co-Star ... Most of the Google TV set box so call experts will outright tell you movies with AC3 5.1 audio will not work on the Co-Star with a million reason why ...

    Thanks to the engineers over at www.serviio.org for the new recently released Serviio Serviio Server version 1.2.1 for (Windows 7/8, Linux And Apple) ....

    You can now play movies with AC3 5.1 digital audio via a AV receiver connected to your CO-Star via the on board built in media player "PLAYPOINT", it will also work via the "ViMu Player" (See Set Up Diagrams Below) ....

    PLEASE NOTE: I have personally TESTED movies with AC3 5.1 Dolby Digital Audio using the mention above GTV set top box video players, works like a charm via the Vizio Co-Star ...

    * What makes the Vizio Co-Star able to play movies with AC3 5.1 Dolby Digital Audio via the new Serviio Server Version 1.2.1 using "Playpoint" mediaplayer or Vimu Player is the new recently released (<Profile id="1" name="Generic DLNA profile">) See This Profile Below With AC3 5.1 Dolby Digital Code ....!





    "Optical Audio OutPut Settings" Are "Built Into The Vizio Co-Star" According To Vizio Co-Star Support This Settings below Would Not Be On The Co-Star If It Did Not Work"

    Some people actually think because they don't know about or have knowledge of a certain "thing" then it cannot work, be true or even exist, because they have no knowledge of it .... Some people actually limit their thinking to this kind of mentality (If I Don't Know About It, It Cannot Work) ... Please keep this disscussion very civil ....

    2.\ To access the "Optical Audio OutPut Settings" on your Vizio Co-Star, go down to the Widget app on your Co-Star, open it, and open the Add Widget side .... Next click on the "Menu" button on your remote, located on the right hand side of the "V" button ....

    Scroll down, click on "Settings" .... Scroll down again, click on "Picture & Sound", scroll down to the Sound area, just below the Volume, Sound effect, Notification sounds and you will see "Optical audio output" settings, click on it, you will see the info in the above bottom photo ....

    PCM, Dolby, DTS or AC3 audio will work with the Co-Star, if you have the correct/right audio equipment( AV Receiver With Select Optical Output Encoding) ... You will now be able to play your movies with/in PCM, Dolby, DTS or AC3 Audio .....(l0l):cool:
