Hey I've got the custom openatv v6 all is good but after installing Kodi 17.3 and adding the sources for Ares all I get is failed to install...

I've checked the link and it's working on android and Web, can I ask if I have to add it a certain way?

Thanks.....

Thanks for the instructions, but unfortunately I can do all that up in till after I select the repo and get a failed response.

Wookie installed fine, but ares and supreme builds failed?

Can I place the zip using filezilla and load it that way...

hi guys reflashed my vu+solo 2 box with atv 6.1 opened quite nice by the way opened kodi 17.4 installed ares wizard all looks good but when i want to watch any thing say like a film it justs says busy please wait and just hangs there with a little wheel of circle dots going round and round any ideas guys a bit annoying knowing that everything looks good i am running at a speed of 26mb

i get a message saying version check using 17.4 rc1 while 17.4 stable is available
required upgrade to newer version but don`t know how to do this as kodi was already in the atv 6.1 so don`t know if this is something that needs to be updated in the build or can i update kodi within its self if so how do i do that
thank you malcolm cunningham

Ignore the update message as you cannot update Vu+'s version of Kodi yourself.

Reads to me like Kodi may be trying to use its own Mplayer to play movies. This will not work so make sure you have Mediaplayer installed & it works. If you do have mediaplayer installed then I suggest removing it completely and trying again.

hi guys finally got ares wizard to work watched a guy on you tube and followed his instructions thought i would put it on here it might help others who may be having problems heres how
download merlin wizard http://mwiz.co.uk/repo installed it then went to tool box fresh start and click on yes bearing in mind this will wipe out all your applications and leave kodi as a fresh start close kodi and open it back up then installed ares wizardhttp://ares-repo.eu it installed straight away with no issues very happy chappy now
he recommended using a vpn don`t know if this is needed let me know your thoughts on this one please does anybody else use vpn anyway guys all working now hope this helps anybody who is having same problem trying to install ares wizard error i was getting was repository not installed please install repository, by the way this was from custom build 6.1 on a vu solo2 so don`t know why this was happening but it seems fine now, may be its something to do with kodi itself but alls good now cheers malcolm

1st Press Menu then scroll down to plugins & press OK. Look in the list. Is Mediaplayer present? If not press GREEN and scroll down to Extensions. Press OK and then scroll down to Mediaplayer, highlight it & then press OK to install it. Once done try to play your movie again.

put the zip I gave on /media/hdd

Go on Kodi
Addons - install from zip - then goto media hdd and then click the repo zip.
