why not a mibox international version at $70+

reliable hardware from reputable company, quality components, and google-certified android TV OS.
just looking at the specs actually with 4GB ram and 32/64gb storage.

the tv os still can access the normal playstore? and how about installing apk?

Android TV os has its own curated app store. But I think you can sideload apks

if you are using it as tv box, there is no difference between 2GB and 4GB. i.e additional 2GB are wasted.

Is the box rooted? If so you can install adaway from the f-droid store. It's a system wide adblocker
How to check if it is rooted? I guess not since I saw many ads pop up?

Can you guide how to solve this problem?

Install root checker from the Google play store. It should tell you. Root has nothing to do with ads. More like the app developer greedy and put as much ads as possible into the app.

I'm looking at h96 Pro max.

Qoo10 with local warranty 1 year.. 32gb.. $97
Lazada, ship from overseas no warranty 64gb model.. $65

Amy advise?
Is this box using rk3328 processor. Very slow and not stable. Better to get amlogic processor. YouTube has videos not recommending this box. Octal core processor are faster and the wifi is dual band.

I saw one of the vendors of these box using a RSS app to watch HK, Korean and Chinese drama. This app can search the dramas using English names which is a great plus for someone like me who is pathetic in Chinese.

May someone let me know the name of this app? I don't seem to be able to find it. Many thanks
