    How so. tell me anywhere that this box says an HDCP 2.2 compliant 4k tv is a requirement. Show me. How about I told you so.

    Over and out a$$wipe. I'm pretty sure you proved mine. Thats some pretty important crap to leave off the packaging or requirements information "to make this 69$ streamer work, you will need to invest in a 4k television". lol Thanks for telling people to "check their cables" and to "keep trying tv's". Cause that was so helpful jackazz

    So I got a second mibox. Same tv, used the cable from the first..........and guess what - it works out of box. So one mibox works, the other doesn't. The one that doesn't - works if you put a 4k hdcp 2.2 splitter on it.

    So what do you think miboy - is that still something other than the mibox that's the problem.?!?!?! Clearly not. Earlier run versions obviously have a problem with non 4k TV's

    Just read this whole thread and dr_pepper can't come anywhere near miboy's obvious knowledge on the subject. He's so far up his own bum he can't see the need to apologise like an adult.

    The whole thing is hilarious but so often seen on technical forums around the Web.

    Glad you enjoyed our little logic exercise. Funny thing is I don't even use Netflix. Even without claiming 30 years of IT experience, a small dose of wireshark analysis made it obvious, using a family members Netflix credentials, that the Mibox is just passively reporting the responses requested by the Netflix servers.
    Once Netflix gets a back channel response that requisite DRM security is not provided, it shuts off the stream. That is what accounts for the 20 second lag many people report. Netflix wants to send the highest res stream but without proper response from the display device, it shuts down.

    It is indeed a shame Netflix error message is so non-specific and lead to wildly exotic, illogical interpretations.

    Xiaomi 'tech support' are so unfailingly polite they never place the blame exactly where it belongs, with the TV, AV receiver or projector that has faulty or non-existent DRM, specifically HDCP conformity. Same goes for Netflix, who totally lacks a clue as to the nature of the problem and does not explain they are the genesis of the problem. Poor Xiaomi takes the heat for simply creating a box that does EXACTLY what Netflix demands......tell us if the stream we are sending has been compromised by lack of DRM security.

    Sorry for the rant, but I thought you would enjoy some background details.

    Later

    I have 2 mi boxes which do not play netflix 4k, still investigating.
    Philips UHD TV directly connected to Mi Box
    Max screen setting available is 4k2 30fps, so this is what I set the box to.
    DRM Info app says hdcp 2.2, does that mean the whole chain box-cable-tv or only the box is reported?

    Latest update, factory reset all done.
    I tried to find the test pattern content on netflix that where mentioned in the post, but cannot find it.

    Anything else I can try, any tips?
