i am in the US and for the past week or so, i have been unable to see the metadata or stream any movies, tv series, cartoons, etc when using ubvod. the only thing that works is live tv. well i finally got around to putting my vpn app on my ubox3 and selected HK as the portal. Voila! everything streams and metadata downloads perfectly. i did mention this to the unblocktech guys via wechat, but they dismissed it as a networking issue on my side. not true. so heads up if you are having issues, install a vpn. darn US trade sanctions!
