Anybody using A95x from fb Android tv box solution.
I was disconnected and now it ask for activation code. Tried to contact the seller but nowhere to be found.
Anybody have their latest contact no.

Quite some people reported the same issue on a Facebook group.

Basically gone case liao and no way to recover. Sorry to say that but this is the conclusion from the reports.

Lesson learned is not to buy any TV boxes from Facebook pages. Buy from online shops like Lazada instead.

Facebook page, facebook group, carousell are not good places to buy tv box.

The sellers can run easily and very hard to trace.

They can start new accounts and repeat the tricks.

Toggle can not. You can try cast from phone. Some people reported issues as well with casting Toggle to Mi Box S last time with the built-in Chromecast function. Hopefully the issue has been resolved from the Toggle side.

I have no issues casting Toggle to TV with my first generation Chromecast dongle.

Never tried this myself.

What I do is try to find the known good image, hopefully the same version as the box firmware version (I found the Android 7.1 FW for my RK3328 box and S905W box with same version string) or from the vendor itself in the case of Tanix TX6 (Android 9.0).

For S905X/S905W/S912, there are working bootable TWRP recovery uSD card image so you can back up the ROM.

For S905X2, I do not know of the existence of such image.

There was no Mi Box S with local warranty before. Only recently some Mi Shops start to have that and the price is S$99 (was S$109 initially).

You can download TVB Anywhere+ and SingTel Cast (as well as SingTel TV Go) from Mi Box S' Play Store.

You can not get Starhub Go installed, it is not available from the store and side load does not work. However you can cast from phone since Starhub Go supports Chromecast. Mi Box S has Chromecast function built-in.

Not so sure what you mean by sportscast. I assume you mean SingTel Cast.

mi box s can view singapore channel 5 and 8?

If you want the best performance for local over the air TV, then get a DVB-T2 Tuner Box and an Antenna.

Toggle app can not be installed on Mi Box S. It does support Chromecast feature. However previously there were some reports of problems with the built-in Chromecast feature of Mi Box S. Not sure if the issue has been fixed from Toggle side or not.

I saw you asked in the Xiaomi TV box thread as well. Hopefully the owners of Mi Box S can chime in and confirm whether Toggle works or not with Mi Box S now.

How to watch live sports like NBA basketball games or Premier League football games with Mi Box S ?
I currently watch live sports via reddit online live streaming. Does Mi Box S have browsers like Chrome or IE where i can go to online live streams to catch live sports?

Any other better ways to watch live sports with Mi Box S?

Many thanks in advance for advice n recommendations.

Not advicable to use browser on mibox to watch video

The better way is to continue to use chrome on pc or handphone, then chromecast the video to mibox.
