I have an android box (not a phone) I use with Kodi. I would like to add some URL shortcuts to the Home page. There are apps for this on Playstore and Chrome browser also does this. But I cannot seem to alter my Home page in any way regardless of what I try. I don't get errors or anything, it just ignores my changes. Is there a trick to this that I am missing?

What brand is your android tv box?


My only suggesting is install a launcher then use it as default. It will make your box like an android phone, then you can use it just like any other android phone / tablet.


I personally dont like using an android launcher on tv box as its a bit fiddly, I prefer tv box launcher (Mine is a Nexbox A95X)




Hope this helps in some way
