    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 *******? 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.

    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.

    Hi to All

    Quick question

    This box will be connected to my TV with an HDMI Cable. Unfortunately my TV offers poor quality regarding sound but it offers poor connectivity in order to connect external speakers.

    You think its possible to connect my Bluetooth speakers to the Xiaomi Box while the last one is connected to my TV with an HDMI cable? To be more specific, whenever a tv box or a laptop is connected to my tv through HDMI, sound is generated from TV. But is there any way, the HDMI connection between TV and Xiaomi BOX giving only picture while Bluetooth connection between Xiaomi TV box and Bluetooth speaker giving the sound?

    Many Thanks in advance.
    Yannis
