I've just noticed that the Xiaomi calendar on my device is not syncing with my google calendar. Under settings it has two sources, one is the list of public holidays for my country (which comes from Google) and the other is my google account. When I open the calendar I only see the public holidays!

If I open the google calendar it's all there. Which is a pity, as I preferred the look of the Xiaomi version. Is there any way to fix it?

I have the opposite problem. I can't view calendar and birthdays from Mi account.

Google calendar sync fix.
Install Google Calendar and sync it. After that, you will see all the options in the MIUI calendar.
After successfully syncing Google in MIUI Calendar, you can uninstall Google Calendar.

I have the same problem as well. I use acalendar+ and if it finds the account it says there's an internal sync error. Under accounts and sync I can't enable acalendar sync. It shows Calendar but won't sync. Google Calendar does sync. It also says "sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly." - this has been going on for a few days.
Both Google Calendar and acalendar show a strange numbered account which could well be the numerical version of my google account. acalendar calls this account calendar_displayname. I can't find this account in accounts and sync to remove. Reinstalling the google account itself and the acalendar app don't help.
Uninstalling Google Calendar and reinstalling allows Calendar to sync, but still shows the numbered account in Google Calendar. When I open the Google Calendar after reinstalling it says "Sync is off for the numbered ccount. Changes made to this calendar won't be backed up". I can dismiss or enable sync. So I enable it.
Deleting / adding events in non google calendars seems to work on storage but won't sync, so doesn't show up in Google Calendar.

I just stopped using Xiaomi calendar and went back to Google Calendar. It's a shame, but at least now everything works :)

After a clean install I figured out this seems to have been caused by installing google calendar from the play store - in the past you needed to do this and then open it, but this is now causing problems.
