    i am guessing it is not coming out any time soon in Europe where i live, but i have found numerous Xiaomi TV Boxes on Aliexpress, even with the option to buy mass bulk.

    i was thinking about starting a campaign for people to chip in and buy whatever number of units we end up having money for.

    But what is the legal aspect of this ?


    As i can tell. The devices is not from Xiaomi, even though they state 'official' and 'original' in the destription.

    The devices are branded with the 'MI' logo and everything

    is the "official" Xiaomi TV Box based on the AMLogic M3 CPU ?

    I don't understand it, why don't you buy the box from ibuygou? Cost half the price and no rip off or fakes

    the price is the same, as far as i can tell.

    and if the rip offs or fakes contain the exact same thing then i don't see the problem.


    Do you know if your official box contains the AMLogic M3 CPU ?

    104 vs 76 usd? Why take chances if you can be sure to get the real one for 28 usd less?

    well we in china never trust alibaba absolutely since fake products flood. The best sites for you are Amazon and ebay, due to their humane-less critical seller policies.

    Use ibuygou.com. Their Xiaomi products are genuine for sure ;-)

    i have written Xiaomi several times now since i want to crowdfund a mass order. no reply what so ever. been trying for a month now. there is nothing to loose, only a fairly large order to gain. i will be ordering a unit for myself first of all to get root access. Since it contains the AMLogic M3 CPU, it should be possible to use the box as a Linux based XBMC dedicated device. That would be nothing short of amazing.

    The xiaomi user interface is so amazing i think once u fall in love with it you will never go back to Xbmc. It is so much better.
