Couldn't get a definite answer. If I'm on a stable version, will I eventually get OTA version and download through the updater app? or is OTA only for weekly releases?

Thanks.

Some facts about OTA delay:
  • OTA packages are always same as posted here, so FULL ROM (400-1000MB)
  • Installation via OTA is same as you do, so Updater - Menu - Select installation zip
  • OTA is uploading into Xiaomi china servers which are very slow for download and upload (usually 30-40kb/s for uploading over 10GB) so I have to upload them always at night one by one and I dont have time for doing that every week... Unfortunately OTA account is binded to my Xiaomi account so nobody else can do that instead of me...
  • So we decided to upload OTA only once per month or more and not weekly... Users who are lazy to go here and download zip manually, can wait over month to get new version via OTA, they just dont care about new updates...
  • OTA for cancro / virgo / redmi 2 is too risky after Android base change.. so we decided to save users from bricked devices caused by OTA update... they have to update manually to have it under control...

I installed the stable MIUI8 via TWRP, but had to erase all data and setup the phone again. Now I hope that I won't have to do this again in order to get updates. Can someone tell me if I can get either Ota updates or manual uploads but can keep system settings? Thanks for that info.

Either way...OTA or manual installation will keep all you data and settings... always make a backup before updating....there are several ways to do this..Mi backup in settings... and also TWRP backup and so on...but to answer the question.... NO you will not lose your data and settings......
