Read about this earlier, Infomir were facing legal action over allowing there boxes to access illegal content, they now have a black list of IPTV companies which there boxes block, that list is growing.

3 courses of action

1) Use a android box with STUEmu
2) Ask your provider for a new portal
3) There fave been reports of rolling back the firmware solves the issue

I have mates on same server, some are blocked and some are fine. Maybe MAC blocking?

All of them are just out the box, no firmware has been updated apart from the standard one that comes thru when first loaded. Could it be clones? I know that they were all bought from WOS

Did not think that WOS dealt in clones. From my reading its the official firmware which is the problem

I wouldnt think so either, so I have mailed them to ask if they are official. Im trying to pin point where the block is as some work and some dont. Just now its pointing to MAC blocking rather than provider blocking.

For the love of me i cant understand how this happen. Of course legal action has been issued. Surly its the end of informir. Just like DNS reporting on C/S days i assume new portals will be issued.
Was never big fan of mag boxes anyway.

Clearly opens the door to other STBs and apps to come under pressure in the not to distant future to block streams.

Also opens doors to other stb's tho. It was an easy fix. Too easy actually 🤔
Answer is yes and no. LOL.
Open source STBs and android is best bet. With fireDL removed on amazon devices within 24 hours there was other means. Would never advise mag boxes at best of times.
Nothing better than having open source STBs.

I think sales will plummet, hopefully. Mind you there's fw out now that allows you to add STBEMU to the mag (pile.er.shyte) box

Surely someone will just clone the boxes, and write custom fw for them? Or even just write custom fw and bypass the blocking completely.
