Guys using Mi Box S, and had some of the apps like B**TV and Ty****.

But for some reasons the videos loaded is buffering? The MiBox S runs on wifi, and checked the speed using some app from Playstore and it getting about 50mbps download and upload speeds. Is this comparative slow network?

But the tv when its own internal Youtube seems to be fine and loading with no buffering :/

Are there any other settings I can twerk?

the problem is between the server and your box.

you can get better speed by choosing the right link.

sometimes, by setting your box's dns to google dns helps.

Buy a good box, Google... at least 4G RAM/64G, 4K

Then go TV Box check for the apps to watch
Or U tube have some videos

Non tech people buy those box with pre installed apps which they download also.

Which android boxes are good for movies and also USA/Korean/Taiwan shows?

Any good ones to recommend?

for watching video, 2GB/8GB should be enough.

the best example is from nvidia - shield tv 2019 - come with only 2GB/8GB.

I think it more on the app to see movies.
Not so much on Android box
Most of the box out there should work well with a movies app

Is this good performance? And easy to use?
How much? Where to buy?

Indian
TVB/China/Korea
All ok?

You can go Shopee.com check out price.
You check with the supplier whether the box include apps??
Easy to use the interface or not is subject to individual.

Mecool KM9 Pro 4GB/32GB

What programs do you usually watch with this box?


I think mi box is safe bet, X96 etc. Just get a below $100 box and play with it. Those $200+++ are for gaming etc.

I don’t own box, can’t afford. I still recommend 4G/64G as 2G is slow.

I think I might consider Mi Box S. Decent and affordable with pretty positive reviews.

Anyway why are some Android TV boxes like Nvidia Shield/Pro so expensive? The price is on the high side but reviews are really good too. Very tempting..

Was using ubox previously. Died after 1 year 10 mth usage.
Now using evpad. Loading seems to be faster & less buffering.

Evpad would be a better choice.

Different box have different processor, ram, rom. Yes you can get a sub $50 box but at the cost of the performance. More worst, kena carrot chopped if a sub $50 box worth sold to you at inflated prices. There are many out there waiting to be chopped if nvr do homework.
Get a box that tends to your needs and not overkill. Nvidia shield Pro is indeed a top choice for anyone that knows what it can do and meets their requirements. If you buy it just to watch iptv, it's better off buying a TV stick instead. Small and save space.
