    Calling all smart android peeps, just purchased an android box and hooked it up to my 32" lg tv, yay it worked. Then tried to hook it up to my Sharp Aquos LC-52D 65U and nothing. I get the four penguins on the left top corner then nothing but a black screen. I've updated the firmware to 4.4.2 ,set up our wifi, checked all settings on the android box and can't find anything wrong. Checked all settings on my Aquos and can't see anything. Updated the firmware on the Aquos as well. All cables are new and work fine on the LG. Please help!

    Welcome to Android Central! How old are the LG and Sharp TVs, respectively? Maybe the Sharp TV is too outdated to be compatible.

    My tv allows the Apple TV to operate. Model is a sharp aquos LC-52D65U. I can't find the build date but reviews in 2009?

    That's at least 5 years ago. I'm guessing it's just too outdated. Remember that in those days, everyone was rushing to climb on the Apple bandwagon, so it was more likely for a TV to be compatible with Apple TV.

    Wah! I emailed Sharp so maybe they have some firmware. Hopefully😁. Thanks so much for your help! Ps in my opinion the Apple TV is half the Android box😄

    Does it need to be a smart tv?

    You mean in order for the Android box to work? I don't think that matters. Smart TV usually refers to its ability to access the web and install some apps.
