Hi

I have a mitv3 55" and mitv3s 48", recently both were automatically updated to the new software with the new interface.

I must say that the new interface is really lousy, I cannot customize the placement of my app icons and they are all over the place!

But the worst thing is recently xiaomi started pushing advertisements on startup/power down/app start, etc....... and I cannot find a way to disable them!

Anyone can advise?

TIA

This is Xiaomi's revenue model.

They just need to tell any brands :

I got say 2 million Mi TV sold. So whatever you advertise with me, I'll guarantee you at least 2 million eyeballs on your ads.

Just charge $1/eyeballs/day, ho say liao.

yeah I understand that, just letting out some steam nia
plus I dont like the fact that they are doing so much stuff under the hood without my knowledge -_-"
but the mi tvs are still a great value for their price, no doubt abt it

there is a limited sorting method for your apps.
I have 48" mitv3s...Ver 1.3.8
Goto your apps main page, at the upper right corner ,
you will see SORT - DELETE

select SORT.....
-- The 1st app will blink, use the remote to select the app you want and press OK, this selected app will be moved to the uppermost left position.
I select the apps I want to be in the upper 3 rows

cheers

PS... Hate the xiaomi ads...

Mi TV 4A model

Anyone know the difference between the latest 4A model and the older 3S? I try looking at the comparison table it seem 4A quality is inferior to 3S but much cheaper. I been tempted to get the xiaomi TV for its low price but the opening ads thingy is putting me off. Is there any way to get rid of them?

You mean Mi TV 3S specs is better than Mi TV 4A?

No, can't get rid of the ads. It is part of the package.

Looking to get a 55" xiaomi 3s tv for mainly gaming on my ps4 pro. Would like to ask does it have HDR and would it work with the ps4 pro under HDR settings/mode? Thanks for the help!

What is the issue with the ad? 20-30 secs? Anyway, if u load any china apps, it will give u 10-20 sec advertisement right? Actually I find xiaomi box is really snappy as compared to himedia, Minix, viewqwest box. Only nvidia tv can beat xiaomi box

I am still using Mi TV 2 55" now.

So tempted to change but holding back. I want to see how long can my Mi TV 2 55" last.
