For Chinese live TV, you can use many free apps, like 超级直播 or 电视家.

Or other channels, no good alternative. Best is Starhub Fibre TV and SingTel TV, or certain packs from SingTel Cast or Starhub TV+.

Or preloaded boxes like Ubox and EVpad. Evpad almost went under a few weeks ago after their servers got seized by Chinese authority. But they are recovering now.

Or you try those IPTV packages which no one can guarantee how long they can work.

Or try Dim Sum for free first to see if it meets your requirement. VOD and not live TV. S$4.9 per month for VIP subscription.

Beelink is still no match for Zidoo, Himedia and Egreat in the high end market.

If you look at Zidoo, they have many new offerings after the X20 Pro which was released in 2018.

On the other hand, Beelink seems to do well with mini PC side as well.

If you have Himedia Q10 Pro, probably you do not need the Beelink any time soon, unless you want to play some Android games.

As for Kodi, I do not use it at all. I use streaming apps only, no local media playing.

Current apps on my Mi Box S, you can see that it is heavily geared towards Chinese Entertainment -- vod apps and live TV apps and music apps.

That should not happen, you should be able to reflash to original FW, using the standard flashing method.

Try both the USB burning tool (with PC + USB A-A cable) and the USB Burn Card Maker (MicroSD card).

Stock ROM should be Android 7.1 for X96 Mini. But I see that there is a version with 9.0 as well.
