Thanks, found a few but the warranty varies from 7 days to 1 year? Does it matter? Do seller really honour the warranty in the first place?:s11:

The following link is from an official Xiaomi shop and sure they will honor the local one year warranty, but you will have to wait for the price to go down (say S$89 or lower). The price is at S$109 now and not worth it.

mibox is very reliable, so don't need warranty.

the more important thing is 7-day or 30-day return/exchange, just in case - something happened during the shipment.

Hi guys

Need some advise bought mibox s is it called mibox 4 , we can’t get any sound from the box and the internal storage is 5.4gb not 8gb
Can help advise how to get sound is it need to get a audio cable ?

Check the model number, Mi Box S has the model MDZ-22-AB. It runs official Google Android TV OS. You can buy it from Shopee or Lazada.

Ref: https://www.mi.com/us/mi-box-s

As for sound, are you using HDMI cable?

As for storage, it is normal you get 5.4GB since the system will also occupy some spaces.

Do not buy the China model Mi Box 4. 小米盒子4.

Thanks Xiao Fan
Have checked it is the same model number and it’s mibox s version

We got it at Qoo10 with some discount as the tv we bought from TB doesn’t come with android system but charge us for the price with it .

Just manage to solve the sound issue we reset and sound just auto works

Yes using HDMI cable the volume quite low
Even i use chromecast to cast the volume sounds louder than using the xiaomi youtude app itself

Thanks buddy

Use the remote to adjust the volume.

My new android box 9.0 after I download some apps from play store, I can’t download any more.

I follow google advice to clear data and cache and remove most apps, account and restart also can’t download any app anymore.

How to resolve this?

Actually I factory reset twice and tried to Download Linyi and a few popular ones and they still always in downloading mode. Can I conclude maybe the apps are busy? During weekend....

I like to watch a few things:

1. HK, Korean, Taiwan and China dramas
2. HK and Taiwan news
3. Hollywood movies

Do you have any recommendations to where I can get them?

4. My friend asked me Indian Hindi movieszz

Cast from phone is the recommended method.

Once start the cast, you can use your phone or other things or even shutting down your phone.

Using Chromecast buit-in function of Mi Box S.

Starhub Go is another such app.

SingTel Cast and SingTel TV Go are natively supported by Mi Box S' Google Pay Store.
