Mi Box S on the sub S$100 range.

Or Nvidia Shield TV on the high end.

Where to get good deals for Mi Box S?
Usually you can try Shopee, Lazada or Qoo10.

Example xiaomi online lazada shop (not official shop). No local warranty and 2pin plug with free three pin adapter. I bought my one from this shop. It is now S$76.9 with S$1 coupon to make it S$75.9.
https://s.lazada.sg/s.NPGz

The official Xiaomi Global online shop occasionally also has very good offers at around S$79 or S$89 and local warranty. Not now though (listed price S$109).

H96 max or AF95 better?
You mean H96 Max X3 S905X3 CPU based box and A95X F3 S905X3 based box? Both are generic box without consistent quality. If you are an experienced user and know what you want, both are okay and not much different with decent hardware specifications. Better buy 4GB RAM version.

Do not buy H96 Max box which is based on RK3318 CPU.

If you are not an experienced user, you may want to consider higher quality branded box like Mi Box S (best box under S$100) or Nvidia Shield TV (best box money can buy).

hi, very new to tv box

other than buying a tv box, i still need to pay for a subscription to actually watch the channels right?

my parents usually watch mediacorp and taiwan news and variety channels (TVBS, 中天, phoenix, etc.)

if you can detect the router using mobile, then means router ok.

Can take the box to another house and try search wifi, probably canít work.

Try upgrade or reset your box and see, itís the box problem。
