TVpad user does not exist message December 2013

TVpad user does not exist message December 2013

Recent days, many users around the world are getting the "user does not exist message" on their TV screen, even if their Internet connection is working. It's possible that your TVpad is working again now. If your TVpad (TVpad 2 or TVpad 3) is still not working (still getting the TVpad user does not exist message), change the DNS number to 61.139.54.66 and restart your TVpad. 

All my TVpad2 and 3 units are working fine after I have changed the DNS number to 61.139.54.66. It could take a while (maybe hours) before you see the green icon again on your TV screen, so don't shut down your TVpad even if it don't work after a minute.

TVpad user does not exist message

TVpad user does not exist message

I have seen some reports in the recent days that some tvpad users are getting the tvpad user does not exist message on the TV screen even if their Internet connection is working fine. I am not getting the user does not exist message on my tvpad versions (tvpad m121, tvpad2 and tvpad3), so it seems to me that this problem only occurs in certain area's.

You could try to change the DNS number to 8.8.8.8 or 61.139.54.66 in the Internet settings and restart your TVpad after changing the DNS number. It is possible that won't get the tvpad user does not exist message anymore after changing the DNS number.

Update (30 December 2013): recent days, many users have experienced the tvpad user does not exist message. Some hackers have attacked the servers again and that's why the servers are down and you are getting the user does not exist message. Change the DNS number to 61.139.54.66 and restart your TVpad.

All my TVpad2 and 3 units are working fine after I have changed the DNS number. It could take a while (maybe hours) before you see the green icon again, so don't shut down your TVpad even if it don't work after a minute.

How to fix tvpad user does not exist message

How to fix tvpad user does not exist message

As mentioned in an earlier post, there are some problems with the tvpad servers and that's why you are getting the tvpad "user does not exist" message on your screen even if your Internet works. The TVpad management have said today that the servers should be restored within a couple of days.

If you want the TVpad working again right now, there is a solution for that. You only have to change the DNS number in wifi settings or network settings to the following number: 61.139.54.66

Update (30 December 2013): Recent days, many users have experienced the tvpad user does not exist message. Some hackers have attacked the servers again and that's why the servers are down and you are getting the user does not exist message. Change the DNS number to 61.139.54.66 and restart your TVpad. 

All my TVpad2 and 3 units are working fine after I have changed the DNS number to 61.139.54.66. It could take a while (maybe hours) before you see the green icon again on your TV screen, so don't shut down your TVpad even if it don't work after a minute.

Follow the instructions below to fix the tvpad user does not exist message


1. First, go to "Network Settings" if you are using a wired connection or go to "WiFi settings" if you are using a wireless connection. 


2. Inside "Network Settings" (for people who are using a wired connection), you need to switch to manual settings and type in your IP address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS number. The DNS number is 61.139.54.66. Subnet mask is usually 255.255.255.0 and gateway is usually 192.168.0.1 

Change the DNS number to 61.139.54.66

3. After typing in your IP address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS number, go to the "OK" button and press "OK" on your remote control. After the settings have been saved, restart your TVpad. After restarting your TVpad, it should work now. You should see the green user icon on the bottom after a few seconds.

4. Inside "WIFI settings" (for people who are using a wireless connection), switch to manual settings.

tvpad2 wifi setup
The TVpad2 (TVpad M233) will now search all the available wireless networks in your area. Search for your network name (SSID name) and then insert your password. After inserting the password, TVpad2 (TVpad M233) will now try to make a connection with your router or modem. You should see the green sign that tells you that the TVpad2 has successfully been connected with your router or modem.

I have not encountered any problems watching the livestreams using a wireless connection. However, the TV channels will load faster using a wired connection. Also, TVpad2 will remember the WIFI settings (even after turning of the TVpad2), so you only have to setup the WIFI connection once.

TVpad2 (TVpad M233) review

Go to this page for the TVpad3 promotion packages: tvpadm233.blogspot.com/2013/11/tvpad-3-discount-deals.html

As mentioned in an earlier post, the main difference between TVpad2 (TVpad M233) and the earlier version (TVpad M121S) is that TVpad2 has a better CPU and GPU compared to TVpad M121S. Another difference is that TVpad2 has a WIFI chipset built-in, so you don't need to use a WIFI USB stick anymore. Furthermore, TVpad2 has the ability to play games using the game controller. TVpad2 will also have VoIP feature in the future.

My experience about the TVpad2 (TVpad M233)

First, the start-up time of the mediaplayer is short and the loading time of the apps is also quite short. I did not really notice any huge difference if I have to compare it with the TVpad M121S.

Furthermore, it's great that a WIFI chipset is built-in. I have not encountered any problems watching livestreams or video on demand content using a wireless connection. It will only take more time to load the TV livestream or video on demand content (this depends how good the wireless connection is) compared to a wired connection. Also, TVpad2 will remember the WIFI setttings, so you don't need to setup the WIFI connection everytime you start the mediaplayer. You need to take into account that various factors can influence the wireless connection (for example the distance between the router/modem and the TVpad mediaplayer). If you encounter some problems with the livestreams (for example, if you can't watch the livestreams fluently), then try using a wired connection.

About the TV apps, I have noticed (and many others) that there are black bars (on both sides of the screen) in the livestreams of the HK app 粵海寬頻. Also, there is some lag in the Japanese niji show app (audio and video are not in sync). The TVpad management already knows this and they are planning to release a fix in the near future.

The TVpad games can be played using the game controller. There is currently 12 games that can be played and more games will be released in the future. I have played a couple of these games, they are easy to play (it's not difficult).

VoIP is a nice feature, but it is not available yet. I am hoping more livestreams (whether it is from HK or from another country) will be added in the future, I think most people buy this mediaplayer for the livestreams.

This app could be useful for people who can't watch the real HK livestreams. These livestreams look a bit sharper now compared to earlier days.

TVpad user does not exist message

TVpad user does not exist message

If you are getting the TVpad user does not exist message on your screen (user icon on the bottom is grey and not green), then it could mean that your Internet connection (wireless or wired connection) does not work. A working Internet connection is needed to confirm your identity. Also, try restart your TVpad (multiple times if needed). Sometimes, a restart of the tvpad will help.

If your Internet connection is working, then it could be that there are some problems with the TVpad authentication server. There is nothing you can do, you just have to wait untill they fix the problem (the server). They usually fix this problem very quickly.

Update (10 October 2013): the TVpad authentication server is down at the moment, so you are getting the "user does not exist" message on your screen even if you have a working Internet connection. They are now trying to repair it. It should take a couple of days. You don't have to do anything.

The servers should have been restored now. If you still get the user does not exist message, please contact the customer service.

How to watch TVpad2 livestream on your computer or mobile device (e.g.ipad)

How to watch TVpad2 livestream on your computer or mobile device (e.g.ipad)

As mentioned in a post of my other blog (TVpad M121S), it is possible to watch the TVpad2 livestreams for example on your computer or on your mobile device (tablet, mobile phone). You will have to turn on the machine if you would like to watch the same livestream somewhere else (for example on your computer or mobile device).

First, you will need to know the IP address of your TVpad. The IP address of your TVpad can be found inside "Settings" (Go to Grey icon in the start menu of the TVpad), then go to "cable network" icon or "wireless network" icon. Write the IP address down that you will see on the screen.

Then you will need to know the port number of your TVpad. The TVpad port number begins with 6001 and if you switch your TV channel to another channel, then the port number will increase with 1 (thus 6002), and so on.

After that, put the url (ip address of your TVpad:port number) in any media player that supports streams (for example, VLC player on your desktop PC or Mac). Use Oplayer to watch the livestream on your iPad or iPhone.

http://(ip address of your tvpad):(port number)


For example

http://192.184.1.84:6001 (note: the first part is the ip address, the second part is the port number) 
http://192.184.1.84:6002 (any channel change on your TV increases the port number with 1)
http://192.184.1.84:6003
http://192.184.1.84:6004
http://192.184.1.84:6005
http://192.184.1.84:6006
http://192.184.1.84:6007
http://192.184.1.84:6008
