Updated my previous gen mibox International to latest oreo update. No issues even using a cheapo $4 USB 2.0 to Ethernet adapter for lan connection instead of wifi

I am using Mibox S to watch shows via Starhub Go app. Last week I was prompted to update the app on my phone and now the casting don’t work again
I don't have a suckhub go account but if you installed it on your mibox why do you still need the casting feature

Questions from experts

Hello fellow HWZ users,

Would appreciate some simple advice for my family. I have recently purchased a Xiaomi 43" 4S and 32" TV for my family.

43" 4S usage - Mainly for Netflix for highest quality content (4K if possible), possibly some dramas

>> I am considering getting the MI BOX S in order to play 4K Netflix and other content, please let me know if there are better options? An alternative is EPL soccer if possible - even subscription content ?

32" usage - Elderly parents, wants to watch news, dramas, probably netflix as well (UI must be in English)

>> I am quite confused on this as there is so many options on the market, UBOX, MI BOX S, etc. I do not want it to be an overkill as the TV does not have 4K capabilities and my elder parents requirements are not very high. Is there any suggestions?

What APKS/Apps should be downloaded for simple news viewing (BBC,CNN,etc) ?

Thank you for all EDMWers for help in advance.

Then you definitely need to purchase a mibox S for viewing Netflix in FHD. Ubox and EVpad have their own iptv servers but you'll only be able to view up to SD resolution in Netflix

43" is too small for 4k, so if you connect mibox s to the 43" tv, it is better to set the output to 1080p.

for 32" tv, any box will do, you can run handphone version netflix on non-certified box with up to 480p video, still looks good on 32". however, you need an airmouse for it, may not be suitable for elderly, so mibox s is a good candidate because it can run netflix tv version.

You can install most of Android apps. But there are exceptions like Starhub Go.

For Starhub Go you can cast from mobile phone.
