STB profile is a set of options to emulate an STB in the app. The app creates one profile by default on the first start, but you can always change it or add another profiles to be able to load more portals on the same device. To create a new profile double tap on the screen and menu on the top (or on the side) should appear 1, then select Settings. When the Settings open select Profiles where you can add or update profiles.
1 if you use a 3D remote control or mouse, move cursor pointer click on the screen and open the app's menu on top.

Internal portal URL
Main configuration options.
An STB model you want to emulate.
A firmware (not a real one) you want to emulate. Some portals may require to use a specific firmware, so you have to choose it in the list if available. Most of the supported STB models only have a Generic firmware, which is usually the most recent.
- Generic. Usually the most recent firmware available.
- Custom (Mag 250 only). Customizable firmware. Use it if you need to configure some specific firmware options.
Most users should use Generic firmware (selected by default).
This option is only available if you use Custom firmware (only available for MAG 250 for now). Here you may configure some specific firmware options, like version, custom user agent, etc.
A User Agent for web browser.
A screen resolution to emulate (not a real one!). Use one of the resolutions your IPTV portal supports (usually 1280x720).
A MAC address of the emulated device. If you have a real MAG 250 device, you may use its MAC address, or just any random hexadecimal 12 digits (0-9, A-F), divided by colons) 2.
Most portals require MAC address to starts from 00:1A:79.
On some devices which have only Wi-Fi connection the default generated MAC address could be 00:1A:79:00:00:00 which means the app couldn't properly detect it because of Android restrictions. If you have such an issue just change the 00:00:00 part to any random hexadecimal digits.
A serial number of the emulated device. Most portals don't check it so any random text line should be good for use.
Device ID configuration options.
Use MAC-based device ID
Enable to generate device ID based on your device's MAC address. Press Reset device ID after enabling or disabling this option to regenerate the ID.
Send Device ID
Send device ID if portals requests it. Sends empty string if not enabled.
Device ID random seed
A seed for generating device ID. Use the same seed on all your devices that use the same portal URL and the same MAC address. Press Reset device ID after changing.
Device ID value
A device ID. You may either use a generated value or write your own.
Custom device ID 2 and signature
Enable to be able to change Device ID 2 and signature.
Device ID 2
Reset device ID to default value
Regenerates Device ID, Device ID 2 and signature.
IP address that will be sent to a portal if requested. Not a real one. Most portals never use this information, so you may not change it.
Media player settings
Profile specific media player settings.
