buy from taobao sua
Not a good idea to buy Mi Box S from Taobao. Most likely it is more expensive than Lazada/Qoo10/Shopee. Or you will buy wrong box like those Xiaomi boxes meant for mainland China market.

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 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.
