    Prezado. Qual tv box me indica para abrir os canais h.265 1080p Streaming? Testei aqui o yundoo e o KM8 PRo e não abrem os canais h.265 1080p

  5. KCWebPlaza says

    My brain hurts. I'm interested in the most affordable Android TV box for gaming only. I already use a Roku for streaming TV/Movies. So for gaming only, should I skip "Android TV" and buy a box with stock Android OS? I already have a Plex server too. So… want a cheep, simple box that the only purpose is gaming with the family. Will purchase 4x bluetooth gamepads. Android TV seems like its restricted for games available to purchase… I'm techie, could sideload, but again, just want cheap and gaming only.

    Hi Jorge.. I've purchased one H96 pro plus and the device is great except for the WiFi reception which is terrible. But I can't use ethernet port to connect since my router is away from the box. Can I use a wifi repeater with ethernet port to catch wifi signals from my router or phone hot-spot and take the output through RJ45 ethernet port of the repeater to connect to the tv box ethernet port. Please let me know. Thanks in advance

  17. Cash Money says

  19. HD Ian says

    I recently bought an MXQ Pro 4K for around $50 and it keeps shutting off so basically I wasted my money

  21. Yvi Cadet says

    What android box I don't have to point the remote control on the box exactly to use it? That's what I don't like about Android box. The fire TV stick is very good as long as you point the remote on the TV you can change the channel quickly. But for the Android box you have to point it in the box exactly.

  24. blackzed says

    Best ever mk808b simple still using one after 5 year's…..

  25. appennini1 says

    Hi, I wanted to ask for advice, which is the best android box to use exclusively with LibreELEC or kodi ? I need a device with excellent construction quality, and also a good remote control. To exclude the nvidia shield that costs too much.

  26. Ankit Nagpal says

    After using 4 different android boxes over last 4 months, I have found a fatal flaw in the technology that it lacks a cooling mechanism. I usually watch full HD content and play latest games on my Android box. And the Amlogics s912 CPU temperature quickly reaches 80 degrees C. And at 85-90 degrees, it automatically shuts down. It is such a major flaw in Android box design that it limits my fun time to just 50-60 mins, After that, I have to switch off my box for 5 mins and start again.

    If the manufacturer just installs an aluminum cooling case and a small fan, it will increase the quality so much. We all know that the lifespan and performance of memory, RAM and CPU increase a lot if the temperature is kept ideal.

  27. Dan Kissane says

    Roberto great video. Quick question I am only looking to watch mobdro and terrium tv , now I have the mi box and I get great speeds of around 82 download speed and about 8 to 11 upload speed. Do you have any suggestions on what I should do. I mean some times it work perfect and sometimes I get some buffering, I shouldn't get buffering with the speeds I'm getting. Would u recommend a different box. Or any ideas I can do. I tried enthnet and wireless not much of help still get a little buffering I would like your option please. And I am a subscriber to your channel

  28. stugabe33 says

    Happy to agree with you. My MINIX NEO U9-H is the best android box on the market. It has exceeded all my expectations. MINIX support & online forum is also second to none. Obrigado RJ!

  29. Gwendolyn Carter says

    Thanks I'm learning a lot getting ready to cut my satellite bill.

  30. Britney R says

    Hello. I am looking at android boxes for my viz tv that are under 100 US dollars. I have been looking at the DroidBox iMXQPro V2, DroidBOX T8-S Plus v2 LibreELEC, Beeline, and also Mi Box. I honestly am not sure which beats the other. I know from what I heard they all beat amazon fire tv. But between those I listed which would you prefer? I am looking at performance or quality, the best that works with kodi, and which works the easiest. I'm using this for netflix, pandora, movies, tv shows, live tv if I can, and maybe gaming. I would love for it to have an microphone for me to talk through to the tv.The gaming is a plus though. Please help.

  31. AbdulRhman AlHazmi AbadulRhman says
