I was interested to buy the Geekbox until I saw your comment.

The price they quoted me is $188 but no stock. Need to put a deposit first. I was shown a few sets which were reserved for people who had paid the desposit. I was told that if I were to wait for the stock to come in, the price would become $268. I can't understand their logic, no inventory, sell lower price, when they have inventory, increase the price. They promised 1 year hardware 1-to-1 exchange and lifetime app servicing.
Bro, don't bother with this Geekbox, it's the same old sale tactics used for donkey years.

Why not buy an Android box and subscribe to a TV service?

Is there any advantage to using AppleTV?

I have only been using Android boxes and happy with it. Just wondering if there is any advantage to shifting to AppleTV for movie and media streaming.

Thanks.

I thought evpad upgrade to mars live liao

Those who are using EVPAD now, do you encounter problems with Saturn Live? It doesn't seem to work for a couple of days now. Any way to solve this?

Thanks.

Last time, Saturn Live was automatically installed when previous app went down.

I don't see Mars Live installation option. Did you get it in you EVPAD?

No more stock from gearbest for Tanix TX3. Any other place to recommend to buy which is not the OEM version?

I will suggest to go with official Tanix TX3 S905X3 from Gearbest (box with Tanix logo). In this case. I assume you do not need Netflix HD and Chromecast function.
https://m.gearbest.com/tv-box/pp_009559912180.html

US$44 for 4GB/32GB
US$46 for 4GB/64GB

Quality should be more consistent than X96 Air from unknown vendors (can be from a few vendors).

X96 Air
https://m.gearbest.com/tv-box/pp_009...ml?wid=1433363

US$36 for 4GB/32GB
US$47 for 4GB/64GB

Any particular advantage of Tanix TX3 over other Android boxes? I'm planning to get a third box for one of my rooms. Specs look good. How about any in-built apps?

Thanks.

Cheap and good i think. If buy from non gearbest website, it seems that it becomes an OEM version which u wont be able to upgrade the ROM over the air? The one that gearbest selling is direct from Tanix.

Any good Android TV box with big internal storage to recommend? Don't want to keep getting prompts to uninstall apps because there's insufficient storage. Performance and connectivity should be good.

Worthwhile? It is quite expensive and without l1 widevine license. Wondering why can't these MIC can't apply the license for L1 widevine? Google dun allow?

Beelink GT King Pro seems to tick all the checks except that it can't stream Netflix and Amazon Prime Video in HD and it is only 32-bit. Any good alternative?

you never mention price, so price is not your concern

nvidia shield tv pro should be good for you.

I am using mibox which has only 8gb, and I installed more than 50 apps and still has 1.5GB free space.

Since you are new, trust the reputable manufacturers, they won't sell half-baked products.

actually because of this, i'm thinking of shld i buy the mibox S instead but the S905X is quite outdated.

Is mibox s very slow? Qoo10 price around $70 which is quite ex compared to other MIC box. Is Mibox S is running on android TV OS? I used logitech Revue before many many yrs ago but it does have compatibility issues with those china app cos it is running android TV OS instead of the usual Android ASOP OS.
