There’s a way you can put Necro on a magbox that doesn’t use the portal. Flash memory would usually be a USB stick but you can use what you have.
Its pretty simple - and if you make a mistake just be methodical.
Step 1. Copy and paste the M3U link in an internet browser (i.e. Chrome, Firefox, etc) and Enter. Your M3U playlist will be downloaded. Save the m3u file as on your flash Memory (remember its name!).
Step 2. Insert the flash Memory to your MAG device.
Step 3. On the main screen within inner/embedded portal press “Home Media”
Step 4. Find your flash memory’s name and select it and then press OK.
Step 5. Choose your m3u playlist, press OK. A message will be shown, asking if you want to add the channels, agree to that:
Step 6. Hit the F3 Yellow button on your remote to add the playlist.
Step 7. After the channels have been added, press TV button on the remote
Step 8. You can remove the flash memory from your box.
Step 9. There you go!
Keep the USB and these instructions handy - If playlist gets a bit out of date then just repeat.
If you want to get rid of stuff from the playlist just open it in Wordpad after you download it and remove all the stuff you dont want.
Save it and follow the instructions above.
