Install Android STB Emulator for IPTV


  1. Download STB Emulator onto your Android device, then launch it
  2. Tap the near the top right corner and then click settings
  3. Tap Profiles 
  4. Tap Test portal to modify the existing profile or Add profile to start a new one 
  5. Tap STB Model
  6. Tap MAG 250 or whichever STB you wish to emulate
  7. Tap Portal settings 
  8. Enter the portal URL for IPTVsubs--it's http://s1.watchu.tv/--then click OK 
  9. Now tap Screen Resolution 
  10. I chose 1280×720 you are welcome to choose higher but if it is laggy then reduce it 
  11. Scroll down and find MAC address. This is an important number because it is how your IPTV service will identify the set top box. You must change the default MAC address, tap on MAC address.
  12. I recommend changing some of the last 3 sets of characters. The format must be XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX.
The Xs can be the numbers 0-9 or letters A-F in any of the fields. You will need to remember this code so write it down somewhere.
You may also need to come back to this screen to edit the MAC if somebody else is already emulating the MAC you have chosen.
You will find out if it is taken when you try to activate the STB from IPTVsubs. Tap OK.

Note: If you get the MAC address not found when trying to activate, try exiting the STB emulator, remove it and reinstall, when you re-enter the MAC here exit the STB emulator and re-enter.

Now power off your Android device and power back on and open the the IPTV Emulator from the installed apps and it will pull in and refresh the new channel list.
