  • not a bad price

    • I got one last time it was on sale and have been pretty underwhelmed. I should've researched, but it doesn't allow Plex to pass through DTS to my amp and HEVC playback is sketchy at best :/
      I know other apps handle it, but I really like Plex for it's clean interface and artwork/info handling. I really wanted to like it, but it's not for me. YMMV.

  • Don't forget 9% cashback through CashRewards.

    • Great addition to great deal!!

      But what in heck am i doing wrong - can't get this deal - it forces expensive shipping! Only that option and tickbox is there. Mobile problem? Don't have a computer.

      In no rush. Just want lowest price. Thanks!!

      • Try desktop version of website​ on mobile by ticking the box on the options

        • Thanks but no change.


          Bought 2 already. Only express option. But wanted quick. Was like 3 business days!!

          Ps yes will change to usd citibank convert.

          Free shipping only available buying one unit. Dollar amout trigger??
          2 or more forces expensive but crazy fast express. Please include info with all deals.

        • @YogaPants:

          2 or more forces expensive but crazy fast express. Please include info with all deals.

          Coming from someone who has posted ZERO deals himself it's a bit rich to demand that people include information that they wouldn't be aware of.

        • @Maverick-au: I demanded nothing. I support the deal & poster with plusvote. I found limit of one per transaction. I gave information for others. And asked to spread the word. Staff added it. You gave this nothing. Be obnoxious somewhere else.

  • What does this thing do? Don't understand how to use that little box to do anything

    • +5 votes

      play media files.. eg music or movies
      surf the net with the display is through your tv.

      install kodi to watch tv shows and movies.

      mirror whats on your phone or tablet. displays through your tv.

      • Thanks, seems similar to just using chromecast to cast mobile apps though, definitely might still bite on this if it gets cheaper in the future, it's not that much more expensive than the chromecast

      • Does anyone know of any device that does tv to tv mirroring (to share content of one tv to another tv)?

    • Watch Netflix and other online streaming services.

      Play Android games.

    • may be OP can clear things up for you!

    • Think of AppleTV, but with Google apps and OS.

      • Looks like cannot replace my wd live tv then. Anyone knows a good replacement?

        • I don't know what features the WD Live TV has. But this Mi box (I've had mine for months) can play Netflix, YouTube, and via Kodi or VLC can play anything on my network or plugged in via USB. And with a little remote with microphone, the voice search works pretty well.

        • this should definitely replace the wd live tv

        • @t3chshopper:
          What's the remote like for watching movies from your own network ? No issues ?

          Only ask because I had a generic android box and it was impossible. To pause for instance, I had to hit a button to bring up the on-screen controls, then navigate to them to pause, whatever.

        • @t3chshopper: Do you mean Mi box has VLC software then search wd live book to play iso file?

        • @yht: If you install Kodi, you don't need VLC as Kodi can play almost every format and has a better interface and search, or you can also use Plex as well.

        • @jominix: is the usb port on the back for plugging usb/hdd and playing media files on them?

        • @jominix:Ok, the storage capacity of it is only 8gb and obviously we can install any android apps there until they updates all the time like in android phone before it runs out space. Is it how it works? Sorry asking a lot of question as I never have it and wants to be sure it can play iso file via wifi.

        • @redcreek200:

          To pause for instance, I had to hit a button to bring up the on-screen controls,

          Sounds like you are talking about Kodi. The default config seems to assume you have a play/pause button on the remote, but the Mi does not.

          You can remap the keys quite easily to get a 1-button pause. See the whirlpool thread.

        • @manic: Yes. This was my biggest gripe about Kodi with the Mi remote. Thanks to that WP tip I had it fixed in minutes.

        • I have a wdtv live and its crap. I don't even have one of these boxes and I know it would be better.

          wdtv: no apps etc for wdtv, no kodi, PITA when connecting to networks via wifi, crap interface.. poor form in general.

          But that's my opinion..

          if this thing runs android then your winning from the start..

        • @Fizzydrink: But wdtv has movie covers which I like. Not sure if I can do this with mi box.

        • @Fizzydrink:

          I have a wdtv live and its crap.

          Yeah, like I have a PDP-11 and its crap. Doesn't even have a web browser.

          You know the WD was released in 2009? Why anyboady is comparing it to a MiBox, I've no idea.

        • @bargainist:
          Install Kodi and covers, plots etc is done automatically. I don't have this MiBox but did replace slow daggy WDLive Streaming with other Android boxes and no regrets.

        • @deltakilo: Thanks. Goodbye to WDTV.

    • It kills the movie business and TV business according to the movie and TV business.

  • what adapter should i get?

  • USD $ 20.76 (50% off) for Express Expedited? That's pretty expensive. If I use the free shipping will take 33 days to arrive here + 10% GST.

    • You're getting charged for GST already? Nah the seller has to collect it… and they're not.

  • Can it play iso file from wifi?

    • All depends on your particular setup.

      Do you have a media player that accepts iso?

      Is your WiFi in good shape? I had to use a Ugreen ethernet adaptor and it now plays my 10GB+ mkv files flawlessly on SPMC (Similar to Kodi)

    • Yes KODI can playback ISO files over SMB no worries.

    Stan Android TV app was released last week (and works well), and revamped Foxtel Now supports casting.

  • Good price, but hasn't everybody got one already?
    Its not like Eneloops where you can always have more.

  • This company should give us an option to select eparcel with a trackable number via AusPost. Aliexpress and Fasttech have this option free of charge.

  • quick question for anyone who's used one (or knows more than i do at this point) - if i have a google play music subscription, can i play via this? (either directly from this, or via my phone?)


  • Did someone has bought it earlier from this seller? How much time it usually take to reach sydney????

  • Showing up as $80.77 for me as a Cortex - A53???

  • Does it come with Chinese TV streaming apps that can be used in Australia?

    • It's running Android TV. If there are Chinese TV streaming apps for Android TV then you can use them.

    • No, this is an international version that do not have Chinese TV apps pre-installed. You can install it yourself however they are almost worthless as most of the copyright content can only be played in mainland China.

      • Thanks, that is a deal breaker for me.

        • If you mean CCTV etc. Yes, some streaming software can do that and the content is free to watch. If you mean watching TV program in youku, tudou etc, there are some copyright restriction unless you setup the VPN. That should be applied to any of your device in Australia.

      • China has copyright??!!

        • Yes and no. You can still download anything in China, just like anywhere in the world, including Australia.
