Remote Control and Interface Issues (Matricom G-Box Q Quad/Octo Core XBMC/Kodi Android TV Box)

Hi All,
I tried to see if I had enough information to be helpful before I asked for help.

I have a Matricom G-Box Q Quad/Octo Core XBMC/Kodi Android TV Box I am currently using the default program though I have tried to use a couple of android phone remote apps.

I really like the box its an overall superior experience the watching experience is much more positive. I'm currently using the standard programs: Amazon, Youtube, Hulu and Netflix with dreams of adding HBO and couple of other programs. Everything installed like a dream.

The issue I have may not be solvable but it has to do with the interface. A lot of the programs want me to use the "mouse" to select movies. Instead of being able to arrow over by item I have to move the mouse to select and its very slow.
It also prevents me from arrowing over to change the selections present on the screen.


1. Is this fixable or is this just something with the way the android app works?
2. Are there android apps that don't do this? (IE different versions of the Netflix app for instance) If so how do I identify and figure them out?
3. Is there an overall android app that will overlay on the program and let me more efficiently select?
4. Is there a type of remote that I can use the "mouse arrow" more directly either by pointing to the screen or using some sort of interface? If so how do I recognize one that does this
5. Is there a phone app that would let me do this?

I know what you mean about the mouse feature. I struggle to see the pointer some times. I use an app called Yatse which controls the device over wifi network. It makes navigation so much easier although once in a while I have to use the mouse.

We have a remote control pre-release app called CetusPlay can meet all your requirements. If you want to try, please let me know.

I would be very interested in trying the app.

Have you tried actually using a mouse with it. Just a standard PC one should work, either wired USB or wireless. Can use a PC mouse with an Android phone as well if you want, either OTG or Bluetooth.

Figured out a solution for my remote at least. I found that if you click and hold ok it acts as a right click, and seems to work in a few different apps. I have Favormates 2.4gh wireless android/google remote or something like that.

Good Luck!
