TIMBox does not work or does not connect: the solutions

Among the various video-on-demand services available in Italy, the one that has received a lot of praise in recent months is TIMVision. The service of the famous telecommunications brand, unlike other streaming services such as Netflix or PrimeVideo, also uses special physical components such as the set-top box and remote control to operate. The TIM decoder integrates Android TV inside and allows you to see the entire Serie A and the Champions League as well as to view the content offered by the various dedicated platforms such as Disney +, Infinity and Infinity +, DAZN, and many more.

In the case of antenna cable, the latter must be inserted into the designated entry INPUT antenna placed on the back of the TIMBox.
