Android TV Box Thread (*OT posts will be deleted)

  • @unimodem

    Not my house but a friends house.
    Binigyan mo ako ng idea about it, nagbo-broadcast siguro yung Wi-Fi nila ng higher channel which di kinakaya siguro ng Mi Box S.
    Na-encounter ko kasi to dati sa tv na may built in na android box, di niya makita yung channels above 9 or 10.

    Thank you sa pag-papaalala.

    Need nilang babaan yung channel ng router nila para makita.

  • FireStick 4k or Mi Box S?

    habol ko lang Youtube and netflix.. para sa parents ko na senior na.. dapat userfriendly and hindi lag.. kasi mainitin na ulo pag matanda na.. ganun kasi mga cheap android box na tig 500-2k..
  • @jac
    not sure kung may issue rin ba sa firestick, but yung dalawang roku stick na gamit ng parents ko ay nagooverheat lalo na kapag sa tanghali sila nanood ng netflix. it works naman after lumamig ulit.
  • @jac9
    Para sa akin go with the firestick 4k Basta wag yung firestick 2nd gen. Mine runs very cool. My kids love using it compared to my other boxes (mibox and shield) Alexa voice search also works great.
  • Paano iavail yung mi box s sa globe? Palink naman po. Walang alam yung globe store sa sm fairview e

  • anong android TV box po ung mgnda ?
  • @frequenzy
    parang di ko kasi trip yung roku hehe

    @unimodem
    ganun na nga.. kasi kung TV box medyo complicated para sa kanila gamitin.. Ordinary Samsung LED lang kasi TV nila.. Yung akin SMart TV Samsung na.. gusto ko yung UI built in sa samsung.. Netflix and YT..


    ANother question
    Meron din ako Minix Neo-U1 tv box.. 2 YT app ko dun.. yung isa built in sa Minix ata.. yung isa from playstore.. hindi ko sure kung alin dun pero isa dun not compatible na daw sa device (pero yung hindi lumalabas yung comments section na UI).. pano kaya pagahanin? nagcheck ako ng latest update sa Minix ko latest firmware pa..

    naka limutan ko na what youtube app was installed sa Minix U1 ko dati. Ito ba yung kelangan ng mouse and regular youtube tulad sa smartphones? or yung Youtube for set top boxes/android tv that you can navigate using a remote?
    You can try installing Smart YouTube TV https://smartyoutubetv.github.io/ <click here for link> It should work with no issues with your Minix U1
  • Tanong lang sa naka Xiaomi Mi Box S. Plan to buy pero pwede ba mag install ng web browser dun or meron ng pre-installed? Mostly, yung mga pinapanood ko kasi ay pang web browser lang...

    Salamat sa sasagot

    i'm using the older MiBox. walang browser installed by default. You can however sideload Firefox, which works with air mouse. When i say works with air mouse, i am referring to click and hold to scroll... much like emulating swipe down/up. I've tried Chrome, UC, Dolphin, etc. and it is only Firefox where page swiping via air mouse works.
  • Wala pa din bang tumatalo sa Mi box S para sa budget meals na android tv box below 3K?

    Nagpaplano kasi ko kumuha nun mga android tv box na nag rarange ng 800-1500 kaso baka mag sisi lang ako. Ikakabit ko lang sana sa 32incher led tv pang netpliks netpliks.D
  • @super
    kung pang netflix kasi, mas ok talaga certified device like the mibox para walang issue in the long run. yung mga cheap boxes that runs tablet based android is ok kung more on usb/local file lang.

    I see. Salamat sa advice! Will get mi box s na sa shopees.
  • @super
    sa ganyang budget the best option na siguro firestick. 1800 ata sa ito locally. atleast official android tv os to kesa sa mga cheap android tv boxes na available.

    try to look for a 2nd hand mibox 3 marami ako nakikita dati sa market selling for 2k. They have the same SoC ng Mibox S but it only runs on Oreo.
    I dont suggest getting the firestick 2nd gen because it overheats, then throttle and lags alot on my end. Go for the firestick 4k nasa 2.5k siya sa Datablitz
  • any himedia s500 owner here? how is it?
    - <click here for link>

    how about those MECOOL KM3, KM8, KM9?

    first option ko if ever is the S500 since it uses HiSilicon chip. maiba naman hehe

    my sister wants to buy an Android TV, and I might pass my existing Mi Box (16-AB) and try a different one for myself

  • maganda din yong specs ng MECOOL KM9 and KM3. pie, 4gbram, 32gb storage

    edit: forget MECOOL... netflix banned it, and so far no one know when it will be lifted.

    edit2: crap, hindi din netflix certified yong HiMedia S500.

    wala pa ring mibox killer :D

  • kung primary use kasi is netflix mas ok yung certified devices.

    sa amin ang setup ko is netflix via the built-in app of the smart tv, then kodi via those cheap android boxes. works well so far.

  • Meron bang free VPN na fast enough para sa lag free experience na pagsstream ng content from region locked countries? Or talagang karamihan ng maayos na vpn are paid or with subscription?
  • Anong android tv box ang pwede ka manood ng local channels? Pwede ba sa mi box s manood ng local channels?

    Yup, yung built in is yung need ng mouse/KB same UI sa windows.. Yung hanap ko kasi yung same UI pareho dyan sa link.. ganyan kasi yung sa smart tv ko,..

    ==========
    btw, im using Minix Neo U1

    Hindi na gumagana yung built In install Netflix App sa unit ko.. pag nagsinearch ko sa Google PS, walang netflix lumalabas (Pero sa android phone ko meron naman, though hindi naka install, pag sinearch may lumalabas)

    Ngayon ko lang kasi sinubukan open ulit yung TV box ko, after 1yr wala.. sa Samsung Smart TV na kasi ako everyday nanonood ng Netflix and YT..

    naoopen ko yung App kasi pag sign in.. wrong email/pass daw, sinubkan ko maglog-in sa laptop via netflix website.. ok naman.. sa Minix Neo-U1 lang ayaw maglog-in..

    Yung App na sa Home screen sya.. pero pag check ko sa Google PS under "My apps and games" walang naka install na netflix (maybe dahil built in app sya)

    bakit kaya ganun mga TV box.. pag naluluma hindi na gumagana mga built in apps

  • any user of Globe Streamwatch Xtreme, pwede ba ito gamitin sa ibang internet provider?
  • any user of Globe Streamwatch Xtreme, pwede ba ito gamitin sa ibang internet provider?

    Afaik, pwede mo siya gamitan ng ibang ISP but thru LAN cable nga lang. Kelangan mo lang access yung builtin router gui niya via 192.168.254.254. Once you're in change the router's LAN IP address from 192.168.254.254 to 192.168.1.3 and disable DHCP server and wifi radio. After that connect mo na siya sa existing router mo and the Globe Streamwatch Xtreme should connect to the internet.
  • Sold our TV Plus because of the streaming capabilities of the Mi Box S but then decided that we still need live channels, especially GMA 7.
    But I don't want to buy a TV Plus again so I researched ideas from FB groups and after months, I was finally able to gather all the needed accessories for me to be able to install an ISDB-T TV tuner on a Mi Box S.

    If anyone's interested, here is the my tutorial video:

  • @unimodem...

    tnx for that helpful info, since may Sim slot ito, naka-lock ba sa Globe or pwede gumamet ng ibang Sim network? Im thinking of using other sim with VPN access for unlimited internet access...

    pwede din kaya mag side load ng ibang Apps?
  • Tanong ko lang mga bro. Anong apps pwede sa Mi Box S yung local channels natin GMA, ABS etc ? Yung kaibigan ko nakabitan nya yung sa kanya ang siste nireset nya lahat ng android nya kaya nalimutan yung apps para diyan.

    Salamat sa sasagot
  • ^ Baka RedBox Tv or Live NetTV?
  • MXQ pro 4k is garbage. Had to uninstall the non working built in Netflix App and install a 2016 version of it. Finally got it to work only to discover Netflix only plays at Standard Definition. My premium account is wasted.

    Lesson learned.

    Im gonna get a Firestick or a Mi box S.

    Or just attach my PC to the TV and watch netflix from Microsoft edge browser to get 4k Netflix.
