Set top boxes are a great way to enjoy your IPTV experience with services like NTV. If you don’t want to buy a Mag Set top box like the model 250 then you can use an an Android device to emulate the hardware and interface of Mag STBs. Paired with an STB remote app for your Android phone, you can have the same streamlined set top box IPTV experience. This guide was created on an Galaxy S3 running Cyanogen Mod 11 (Android Kitkat 4.4), you will ideally want a powerful device to emulate the set top box.
In this guide I set up an STB emulator to work with BEST-IPTV service.
The Android STB Emulator application can emulate the following IPTV set top boxes.

IPTV Set top Box
MAG 200
MAG 245
MAG 250
MAG 260
MAG 270
MAG 275
Aura HD

Install Android STB Emulator for IPTV

Download STB Emulator from the Play Store here
Load the Android STB Emulator app and you will see this screen

Tap near the top right corner and then click settings – the 4th icon from the right

Tap Profiles

Tap Test portal to modify the existing profile or Add profile to start a new one

Tap STB Model

Tap MAG 250 or whichever STB you wish to emulate

Tap Portal settings

Enter your Portal URL, for BEST IPTV  ASK THE ADMIN 

Now tap Screen Resolution

I 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.

I recommend changing some of the last 3 sets of characters. The format must be XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX. Or use this MAC Generator
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: We will find out if it is taken when we try to activate the STB in our account if it has already been taken
Tap OK.

Exit the app and restart
You will now see your channel list
