Hey I just found this IPTV box in my basement and I would like to get it working. It was alone with the power brick and the box itself. I have an S4 with an ir blaster that might be able to replace the remote but i have no idea how to do this. When i google this box nothing shows up. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

The box is connected into your LAN via a switch or router port. Then the TV is connected to the box via the appropriate cable connections for your TV.

I did some googling out of my own curiousity. Did not identfy any product per se that matched your photos.

However googling "IPTV STB User Manual" I got quite a few hits, for example these three:

http://www.svt.se/svtworld/mottagning/article2002144.sv...

http://www.iptv.com.cy/pdf/STB_User_Manual_English.pdf

http://www.telserco.com/wp-content/uploads/Amulet_User_...

(Maybe your google search will turn up a specific manual. Honestly I did not go through or to all of the links..... Your box could be an original or a branded product...)

The back panel connections on your box seem to fall in line with the products addressed in the links above.

Should be able to figure out the wiring based on the cables and TV that you have.

In the first link the default IP (User Guide page 16 is 10.10.91.90). Page 17 indicates the use of a virtual keyboard to configure the box.

You may find other default setting possibilites. Did not see any indication of a factory reset button in your photograph. Could be the box resets if power is lost.....

So overall, getting the IPTV box set up and working may be a bit problematic.

However, I would not connect the box to anything expensive or unexpendable: The box may or may not work and, either way, may output something not good for the TV or attached network.

A search with the model number: "hs6061 iptv", reveals an ebay link to a different model: hs6060t. It's an Intercom Ventures product. A further search on "Intercom Ventures iptv" leads to various ebay listings (of the 6060) and (google) images that all show a set top box very similar to what you have, even a couple identical, except in black.

They seem to have a website saying they're located in Chicago, IL, though there isn't much information on the company nor their products. Seems like a shady operation, imo, but that might at least get you started with finding out what you have...

Please update us if you find out any more information. I happen to have been looking for a set top box with exactly these input/output connections, given that whatever software it was running is also compatible or configurable to my needs.

Things seemed strange when all traces of the box led only to old ebay listings, Intercom Venture's site shows no support or product pictures, and their business is an LLC that shows they're closed on the facebook page. It's possible (even likely) it's just some generic Chinese iptv box with a US distributor label slapped on it. Either way, I'd be curious to see what you find.

I havent managed to turn it on so thats that... pretty sure now I know it was used for a polish iptv service and my friend gave it to me after they stopped outputing any channels... Was/am hoping that I could use it as an imput for my sattelite tv.

Well you gave it a good tryl.....

Could be the proverbial "blessing in disguise".

If the iptv box had turned on who knows what might have happened to any connected devices.
