You can  chose 1280×720 you are welcome to choose higher but if it is laggy then reduce it

 

Scroll down and find MAC address. This is an important number because it is how your IPTV service will identify the set top box.

You must change the default MAC address, tap on MAC address.

We recommend changing some of the last 3 sets of characters. The format must be XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX.

The Xs can be the numbers 0-9 or letters A-F in any of the fields. You will need to remember this code so write it down somewhere.

You may also need to come back to this screen to edit the MAC if somebody else is already emulating the MAC you have chosen.

Note: If you get the MAC address not found when trying to activate, try exiting the STB emulator, remove it and reinstall, when you re-enter the MAC here exit the STB emulator and re-enter.
