HDMI Arc I used Ugreen one ok leh. It got stated for HDMI Ar TV. I hooked up to my Yamaha Yas soundbar with HDMI Arc ...
Which model of the UGreen are you getting to work with MiTV ARC port.. according to this seller, the model of his UGreen HDMI Audio Extractor does not support MiTV

Sorry & my apology to you bro for my ignorance to read previous post. The one I hook up for HDMI Arc is for my Sony 43” to my Yamaha soundbar HDMI Arc, not XiaoMi Arc as my TV 55” yet to arrive ... Paiseh Paiseh

For Android OS, only those complying will show up in the Home page. Most people use side launcher to see the apk. If you die die must have it show on Home page and not too concern about risk to use 3rd party apps that will generate an icon in the home screen, go ahead and use an APK called TV App Repo

If anyone has figured out how to run Netflix on the new Global 55RU version, please share here. The version from Aptoide doesn't work neither does sideloading Netflix APK.

Cheers!

P.S. Amazon Prime works wonderfully well from Aptoide though. No errors and HDR/5.1 etc all smooth.

Try this, 480p only. Supposedly the apk works for official Android TV device with Google Widevine DRM Level 1.

If you want 720p or better, forget about it and get Mi Box S or Amazon FireTV Stick 4K.

Edit: I see you have Mi Box S already.

Ya the alternative for 4k netflix is just plug in a firetv stick 4k via the tv onboard HDMI and USB port.

Was about usd25 during sales. Just use the xiaomi tv as cheap 4k panel

Hi Richneo, you also bought it via Lazada during the Time Sale? Mine delivered last night. Checked with Seller on 'region settings' and their reply was "UK". However, my 'Mi Home' app on my android phone wasn't able to detect the TV unlike the other Xiaomi appliances I have. Anyone faces the same issue or can advise? Thanks.

Hi all, unable to select audio language (Mandarin) for Korean shows on Channel U although it is stated as "Dual Language". Anyone can guide how do I go about to change it from Korean to Mandarin language? Thanks.

Can I check, my screen is flickering when trying to play 4K with HDR after I tweak some settings. Is it my HDMI Not compatible? Do I need to change it?
