      Below is a link to some info / tips that I compiled last night for the Mi Box - including:

      • link/instructions for the Nougat beta firmware (which Ive installed)
      • an alternate app store to easily install extra apps (without resorting to sideloading APK files)
      • a proven USB adapter that provides wired network plus extra USB ports (I have on order)
      • a good file manager to install (that is not ES File Explorer)
      • how to go into Recovery mode, to clear cache or restore everything to defaults

      https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=2628567&...

      As of today there is also a wiki for this product - https://whirlpool.net.au/wiki/mi_box

      Hope this helps people

    Welcome back :)

      Thank you!

    Very happy with mine. Performance is really good for netflix kodi etc. Hardly takes up any space (in fact I just stuck it to the back of the TV so can't even see it) and nice and easy to use.

    •  

      Friggin beautiful product..
      Massive upgrade from the MK808b Android stick it has replaced!

      •  

        yeah I've tried all sorts of cheapo sticks but this one is a cut above the rest. (some) people whinge on forums about nougat upgrade and/or HDR etc but considering there's hardly any HDR content out there anyway and very few TVs with proper HRD capabilities, it's just a gimmick at this stage. Current version of software (6) works fine.

          I installed Kodi on it and watched the Hawthorn V GWS match using my (free, Telstra) AFL Live Pass.
          Barely could tell the difference from broadcast TV on our 46" TV at my ~4m sitting distance.

        •  

          Hi sir,I just checked the the code still works and show as FIXED PRICE Coupon: $53.99,could you pls log in first to apply it?

          what's your point?

          @gimme:

          Nearly every tv sold has HDR nowadays and there is oodles of HDR blu-rays and Netflix, Amazon also.

        • -1 vote

          @bolinao:

          lol…why would I be running blu-rays through this box?….and EVERY TV sold has proper HDR capabilities? .nevermind

        • +1 vote

          @bolinao:

          you'll find that the number of people (using this box) willing to download pirated (rare) 50gb+ movies fall into a small minority… which is what I was saying to begin with. The vast majority if mibox users wouldn't be in that category.

        •  

          @scubacoles: How'd you manage that? AFL app doesn't show up in the play store for me when I look on my MiTV box.

        •  

          Does lag sometimes, or when storage is full?

        •  

          Where'd you read that? Most issues related to either Chromecast problems or display autoswitching…

        •  

          @bolinao: If you just want to play HDR blu-ray rips off a USB then you TV most likely has that functionality built-in already. The MiBox is for streaming services not for content you have locally.

        •  

          @schmuppet:
          As I said, install Kodi… then download the AFL Video Addon for Kodi (Google it) and install it from zip.
          Add your AFL Live login details and Bam! Full screen AFL Live at reasonable quality.

      •  

        Mine also replaced our MK808b. The difference is night and day - the mi box is fantastic for the non-techies in our house. Highly recommended, this is a great price.

    •  

      Wanted to do this too is the remote ir or Bluetooth.

          Cool thanks! Will use velcro again.

    •  

      Is 1080p or 4k supported on this Xiaomi natively? As a listed support device?

    •  

      Me too. I was very reluctant to pick on up because of 1gb but turns out the performance is miles ahead of most of the Android boxes. Good lesson in not getting sucked into specs.

  •  

    Says coupon code doesn't exist for the mi box.
    What am I doing wrong?

    •  

      Same

      The Code you entered is not for this product.
      Code for single unit price only; VIP Price, Special Offer or Group Deal all exempt.

    •  

      Getting the same.
      Created a new account with another email address and now the coupon code bumps the price to $112.03 on the cart screen, if I do proceed to the Payment & Shipping, it wants to charge me $92.76…? Have tried new page, clearing history/cache, etc. same error. (I've selected EU plug every time)

      •  

        Hi sir,I just checked the the code still works and show as FIXED PRICE Coupon: $53.99,could you pls log in first to apply it?

        •  

          PS:this code limited to AU & NZ only.

      •  

        I have the same issue, is it working for you?

        •  

          I got it to work on my second account. Not sure why it was charging more the first couple of times, but eventually worked.

  •  

    Hi rep what deal can you do on the hubsan 501c Quadcopter,and the xiaomi 4x global version 64 gb 4gig ram will buy now if price is good.

    • +2 votes

      Hi save a penny,could you pls send me the product link for better confirming?

  •  

    OZBMTB code works for me as long as you select "EU" PLUG

  •  

    What plug is best to get ? Eu uk or us ?

    •  

      The closest one to AUS is US - That's if you want to bend it, otherwise it doesn't really matter.
      (Also I get that it's the not 'safest' thing to do etc etc….just saying)

    •  

      No difference… Unless you're happy to bend the pins on the US adapter (Hello electrocution!)
      I like to think the electronics might be better tuned to our 240V in the EU version versus the US version, but they're probably identical electrically.

    •  

      The charger for a PSP works. I use a cheap USB to PSP cord from eBay!

      •  

        Mi box power supply is 6V, so not really compatible with USB…
        It might work, but you may experience reliability issues undervolting the supply long term.

  •  

    Ok thanks will order the EU

  •  

    Thanks, just got one. Hofeully shipping does not take forever

  •  

    Will this play all internet movies mkv etc?

    • +1 vote

      Never had any issues with SPMC (kodi). Seems to play pretty much anything I've thrown at it.

      •  

        Sweet even big files like 10gb or higher?

        • +1 vote

          I only once played a file over 10gb and had buffering issues. But I think it had more to do with my WIFI (NAS) than the capability of the box. I have since ordered a USB ethernet adaptor as I prefer to run these things via ethernet. Hasn't arrived yet so can't confirm.

  •  

    Thanks. Ordered one.

  •  

    Does this come with a free AU plug adapter? I know that Lightinthebox includes a free AU adapter.

    •  

      Yes they ship with an AU adapter. I have ordered many things from GB selecting EU plug or US plug because there is no AU plug option and they always include an AU adapter. From what I understand each order gets an appropriate adapter based on its shipping destination.

      •  

        They do? My last gearbox order, this very MiBox, which arrived yesterday, didn't come with an AU adapter.

        I would get the rep to confirm, certainly don't just assume they do ;)

        • +1 vote

          Just confirmed with rep they will be shipping with AU adapter.

  •  

    Is this the Mi Box 3S?

    •  

      Nope this is the international model made the the European and US market that includes true Android TV unlike the 3S

      •  

        So is it better?

        •  

          Yep google the difference between the 3S and international

        •  

          @Dezeption: The only difference I can tell is the OS. The S3 seems to be stock Android, which would be better than just Android TV?

        • +1 vote

          @pformagg: depends on your preference. Stock android only plays Netflix at 480p and navigation is a hassle

  •  

    Largely happy with mine. Use it for SPMC but mostly Netflix.

    Lately, I am having the most irritating issue and cannot find a cause for it.

    I have a 1080p TV and when watching Netflix, every 10 seconds or so and it's mostly random but happens frequently, the picture were stutter for a split second.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    SPMC plays Bluray rips flawlessly so I know it's not a network issue as it's plugged in via Ethernet hub.

    Would it be the app not liking the ethernet?

    • +1 vote

      Yeh I think that has to do with it not being able to auto adjust refresh rates

      •  

        Thanks for your quick response.

        Is there a setting I can enable/disable?

        •  

          Now I don't think so, it would be a kernel based fix but they haven't done anything for it. Reports here

        •  

          @Dezeption:

          Thanks!

          It feels as if this has half baked software and it has been forgotten.

          I am still on 6.0.1

          Wish we'd get Nougat.

        • +1 vote

          @rorymeister: there's a 7.0 beta floating around you could install that is pretty bugless

        • +2 votes

          @rorymeister: Ive posted a link to the Nougat beta (plus other tips) near the top of the comments

    •  

      Netflix stutter… Had the same thing and turned on HDMI adaptation in the android playback settings and it went away.

      I personally wouldn't bother with nougat until the final release is out. By sll accounts it's not an improvement yet. Some people like seeing higher numbers.

    The code OZBMTB doesn't work. It says it is expired?

      Hi pformagg,let me ask for few more stock.:)

    •  

      same here

  •  

    I'm assuming if it's just Android you can get Amazon Prime/Stan on this guy pretty easily as well?

    • +1 vote

      No.. It's Android TV… very limited App Selection.
      It's the big downside.
      You can probably sideload missing apps, but they may not be navigable easily or at all with the included remote.

      •  

        an example of this is sideloading google Chrome. I use it to pair the device in some file hosters whilst on vpn. You can't even scroll up or down on Chrome to select anything. Lucky i still have those air mouse control from an ancient minix box.

        •  

          have you tried the Unified Remote app?
          Edit : nvm

        •  

          @spawnlaeer:
          tried the Android TV remote control app. The dpad controls works but the touchpad doesn't.

    • +1 vote

      Netflix/Stan yes.. but Amazon is not available on the play store. May be you can sideload but I haven't tried

      And yes… if you sideload an app, it won't show up on the main screen - you'll have to navigate to apps and manually launch it. Not a huge issue for me for a couple of apps I've installed that way. Keep in mind some 'features' may not work for non-standard apps.

      • +2 votes

        if its anything like android tv on Nvidia shield you just have to turn off your location in settings. It will then automatically install or you should be able to then find it in the store.

    Hi OP, any chance of some deals on yeelight bulbs? I'm after some more of both the white and RGBW. Also, I have heard that there's a new version out - do you have it yet?

    •  

      Yeelight RGBW deal please OP!

  •  

    Any idea how long they take to ship it to you? Interested in the Mi box.

  •  

    How does the Mi TV box compare to the Fire TV stick for Kodi streaming performance?

    •  

      Night and day… the Mi TV box is much faster and more customisable.

    Does this stream regular free to air tv also? My Network TV box 'Avermedia HD HomeFree Duet F200' has crapped itself and looking for a suitable network TV replacement to play normal TV on any networked PC. Recommendations?

  •  

    Hi OP, I wanted the UK plug but the coupon is not working. Is this only applicable for EU plug only or the coupon is already expired?

  •  

    Please fix and restock! :) Thanks!
