Hi all, recently bought a android smart tv TCL for my parents. Was wondering if there is any HK drama/variety show app that can straight download to the tv itself? Was previously using an android box but idk how to update the app so the box cant use anymore..but now with android tv, can i skip the box altogether?
Yes you can. Try out TVB Anywhere+ basic zone to see if you like it or not. If yes you can pay subscription.

Not a good idea to directly share gray area apps in this forum, you may get warning or get banned.

It supports certain apps only under Android with DLNA cast. What is the app you are trying to cast?

There is a video to show you how to cast and it is pretty simple.
Hi Xiaofan, thank you for the advice. I got it all wrong, I didnít try out any app thinking I will see whatever display I have in my mobile once the casting is energised correctly. I will try out some movie apps that are DLNA enabled and visit their website to study how it is done.

don't install on phones. install tv version on tv box.

you need the dlna-enabled app on handphone to cast to tv box.

e.g install 第一影视 from playstore on your samsung. play the video, then click on the tv icon at the top right corner of the video. Many chinese video app are dlna -enabled.

you can also use app such as quickcast, to cast video from website.

note: don't use the later/latest version from playstore, there are showing toooo many advertisements.



if you are using iphone, just airplay to tv box.
Hi Gregory, thank you for the app and instructions, I try it out.

Chigz Tech Android TV Box Charts for reference only.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...t?usp=drivesdk

Performance from high to low (I have removed low score boxes and no brand generic boxes).
Box, Price in US$, Score

NVIDIA SHIELD TV PRO (2019) $199.00 5
NVIDIA SHIELD TV (2019) $149.00 4.7
FIRE TV CUBE 4K (2ND GEN) $119.00 4.8
MINIX NEO U22-XJ $169.00 4.6
BEELINK GT KING $118.00 4.4
UGOOS AM6 $129.00 4.5
BEELINK GT KING PRO $149.00 4.4
MAGICSEE N6 PLUS $122.00 4.5
FIRE TV STICK 4K (3RD GEN) $49.99 4.6
MECOOL KM1 COLLECTIVE ED $79.00 4.4
XIAOMI MI BOX S / MIBOX 4 $79.00 4.6

Low cost FireTV Stick 4K and Mi Box get the same score of 4.6, only behind Nvidia Shield TV Pro 2019, Amazon FireTV Cube 2.0 and Nvidia Shield TV 2019.

No change of my recommendations.

Mi Box S is still the best sub S$100 Android TV box in Singapore.

Mvidia Shield TV non-Pro (for streaming) and Pro (for streaming plus gaming) are the best boxes money can buy if you are okay with the high cost.

Amazon FireTV Stick 4K and FireTV Cube 2.0 are also good boxes but they are not as good in Singapore compared to in US.

If you do not need Netflix, then boxes like Mecool KM1 (Google certified Android TV OS, but not Netflix certified) can also be considered.

For those who want to try out chrap generic box based on S905X3, A95X F3 may be a choice, the quality may vary so YMMV. Not recommended for novice users.
https://androidpctv.com/review-a95x-f3-opinion/

The root selector is an interesting feature.

Official Tanix TX3 used to be available from Gearbest but unfortunately it is no longer available.

Try to use USB drive or other method. Not recommended to use a browser.
