I have Viu for Tablet on both my X96 Mini & Mibox S. Need a mouse or mouse toggle app to navigate.

if you use it for watching online streaming videos, 1.5GB RAM is sufficient.

mibox s has 2 GB RAM, more than sufficient.

my mibox has 900MB free RAM most of the time.

Never heard of. So do not buy.

Better buy popular boxes from well known vendors like Mi Box S or Nvidia Shield TV.

Does the broadband speed support the Unblocked box for smooth playback?

to save your wife, get a mibox s
Btw, my TX5 Max has 'TX5 Max' printed on the box but it doesn't seem to make it more durable

X96 Mini is rather small and S905W/S905X are still hot compared to S905X2. And cheaper no brand boxes in general do not have good thermal design, it is a common problem for no brand boxes.

As for dead boxes, as long as you are not able to recover from the usual ways, then it is dead.
My X96 Mini just arrived yesterday and I'm happily using it now. So far so good except this time, I use a little USB fan to cool it.

You're right, it's actually hotter than my TX5 Max but it's half the price so I'll just monitor how long it'll last if I use it everyday.

So you use more casting from cellphone than the box itself right?

Official Tanix TX5 Max will have Tanix logo on it. Like the following from Gearbest.
https://m.gearbest.com/tv-box/pp_009...ml?wid=1527929

OEM Version will only say “TX5 Max”.

As for my TV boxes, they are not connected to my TV and only to a monitor. I am only using them occasionally.

My SingTel TV box, Chromecast 1st gen dongle and Apple TV 3rd gen are connected to my dumb TV. Occasionally I will use my mobile phone to cast to TV with the help of Chromecast. But very seldom. Even our SingTel TV Box is under used now that the kids are more into YouTube than the kids channels like Nick Jr.

I still use my mobile phone more for entertainment— with Youku VIP, QQ Music VIP and YouTube, not really using the Android TV boxes.

of course not. it is a clone.

the only objective of clone manufacturer is to make quick money, nothing about reliability.

there isn't incentive to make reliable product.

if no one buy their cloned tx5, they just make tx6.

buy no-brand product is like buy lottery.

you can run viu from handphone and chromecast the video to mibox. it is a lot more easier than using browser on TV box.
i tried it and it works fine using file explorer + apk. but all use korean dub. abit hard for my mother to watch just with chinese subtitle. any apps that can provide both chinese subtitle and dub?

Oh, mine is the TX5 Max version.

So you watch VOD mostly on your phone instead of TV? My Starhub box is still working fine so I use it as Chrome-cast .

What about MT 4k TV box? Good? What 4K box meant? Resolution upscaling?
