Airplay with MiBox issues

Nov 7, 2014
So, I bought a MiBox the other day directly from XiaoMi here in China.

XiaoMi advertises that the box has an airplay server built into the box. Indeed, it appears on my Macbook Pro as an available Airplay server.

However, when I connect my mac to ther server, it appears on my TV screen for maybe 2 seconds before crashing and going back to the MIUI interface.

What gives - anyone been sucessfully using the airplay server on the MiBox?
