Latest Android TV app DRM broken

Post by foxbat121 »

I noticed one of my Android TV box has a problem with DRM channels, whenever I tune to a DRM channel, it blacks out for a few seconds and crash to the home screen. This is the box I don't use that often. Other Android TV boxes seem to work fine.

Have encountered this kind of thing before (failed to get DRM authorized if you don't use the box often but never crash to home screen), I experimented by cleaning HDHR app data of my Chromecast with Google TV that was working fine with DRM. Launched app and enabled location permission, sure enough, it ended up the same way, black screen then crash to home screen.

So, it looks like the DRM is broken again.

Diagnostic data turned on.

Ok, so now both devices working again. Sounds like a server side issue.

It looks like Google released a new certificate and the date range check was failing - most likely because of a timezone difference.

It is working now.

@nickk,

Thanks for looking into it. Can you also check the app itself? It shouldn't crash to Home screen.
