Purchase made on Playstore not detecting on Android TV


Recommended Posts

I've done this before using a previous versions of PAE on two TVs, but fir some reason I'm not able to restore on my friend's TV immediately after purchase from playstore.

 

Below are few things I already tried 

 

1) Rebooted device

2) Made sure both devices are using same version of PAE 

3) Uninstalled and reinstalled PAE

4) Installed old version (which worked for me) of PAE and restore still didn't work.

 

Any help with it is hugely appreciated. Thank you!

If you are trying to install on a friend's TV, presumably it uses their own Google Play Account, which won't work with your purchases. You should be able to temporarily set up your own Play Store account on it though, and use that as primary while you install the app. Or you could use a website purchased licence which is independent of Play Store accounts.

I would point out that licence portability is intended for your OWN use only, on different devices that you own (including your immediate Family Library setup), but not for use by a wider group of friends.

Sorry if that was not clear, but I was using her account to make the purchase. And we were logged in as her on the Android TV. Only reason I was mentioning my account was everything worked fine with same steps I followed probably an year ago. I will look into other option of purchasing it from the website. Thank you!
