  • How to connect a printer to my TV Box Alfawise H96Pro+?

    Is it possible to connect a printer on the TV Box AlfWise H96Pro+? I can't find any info on this site and on internet. If I search in my settings the printer service is not visible. Please help how to install any printer on a TV Box. I saw 2 youtube movies showing their printer on their tv box, but not explaining how to install the printer on the device.

    Depends of the printer. Android has printing service since 4.4, but not every printer is supporting it.

    If it's older than there is almost no way that it will work (except some update to printer, not it drivers). What's the model of the printer?

    I know that WiFi enabled printer made by Canon should work (tested 3 of them with my Android phone).

    USB printing unfortunately is not supported by Android, at least natively, but PrinterShare app can help.

      It's an USB laserprinter Brother HL-2030. Not Wifi supported.

      On my phone (lenevo zuk z2) there is an option PRINTING in the SETTINGS menu, but on the tv box it's not visible. I want to enable it. But do not know how.
      Both have Android 7.1.2. Can you check if your TV box is also missing the option Printing?

        Checked and in both Settings there is no menu called Printing.

        However if You go to full Settings (not Android TV/Box ones, which are showing only on the right edge of the screen) and than choose magnifying glass icon (search) in the upper right edge, You can search for "printing'. For me it'd shown all print options, same as on other devices.

        Unfortunately it have to be done every time as Settings seems to be missing this one menu.

          I have a Samsung ML-2240 laser printer connected to mine, works perfectly for what I need.
          I use Samsung Mobile Print app from the playstore but I think it only supports Samsung printers. Other brands may have apps available for their models as well.
