Place mouse on "Begin Test" then click OK. Test will begin. Once you are finished, click on the "Return Button" (directly  below the CENTER button). To use the BTVi3 must have at least 10mps to run the majority of the media effectively.

ENTER BTV - Click the BLUE BTV button on the remote or on the desktop click on the large rectangular box on the far left with the BTV Icon. You will see the MAIN CATEGORY selections on the left side of screen. Click into any of them to access the default addon for that type of media or you may scroll over & choose one of the applications (addons) in the sub menus if you cant find what your looking for in the default or just to explore options.

NOTE: A massive amount of streams are coming in from around the world & that means not all of them are going to be working or just not yet available at the time. So do not get discouraged (taking in consideration this is all free). We experiencing a success rate of finding available streams to watch & working at about 80% to 90%.

SELECTING SOMETHING TO WATCH - Use your “arrow” buttons to scroll through movie selections. Use the OK button to make a selection. Streams/links will appear  starting with 1,2,3 etc. Scroll down and select a stream. You will have a variety of quality on streams, 1080P would be one of the highest, then your have HD, SD (slower), HQ, MQ (medium quality).  Some Addons you may not have a selection of indicating the quality, so you may just select any stream.

BUFFERING - The higher the quality, the bigger the file, which in turn may cause slower loading. This potentially could cause buffering depending on various factors including your internet speed. When using movies and various other media, in which it is required to select a stream, choosing a stream lower down in the order may give you better chances of getting better streams and faster loading (no buffering). Since most likely the majority of the users are choosing links at the top. If one is not working and/or starts buffering, then quickly choose another. If for some reason you happen to get multiple streams that are buffering, go ahead and pick one, start the stream, but then click the CENTER button, then you will see a menu bar, you should be able to click the CENTER button and it will pause. Keep it paused for a few minutes, (let the loading catch up) then click the CENTER button again to resume the stream (usually this will help so it will play continuously).
