This happened to one of my friend's mibox that I assisted over the weekend. His mibox is connected to wireless repeater. Main router is a Fiberhome ONU with 4 antennas from PLDT. Connecting to 5Ghz band isn't possible since the router is on the first floor and mibox on the 2nd floor.  Checked the location for any other APs in the area via wifi analyzer app.
There were 7 APs detected from neighbors in the area and their channels are overlapping and mostly using 40Mhz channel bandwidth.
I permanently set the wifi channel to 11 which is vacant and set the channel bandwidth to 20Mhz on their router. After testing it for an hour streaming it was all good.
I really dont really recommend using wireless repeaters. I told him if the wifi issue happens again then its either you need to setup a proper 5ghz wireless AP wired from the first floor to the 2nd floor or shift to mesh network.
if you're converge ONU supports 5Ghz then I suggest have your mibox connected to it.

I suggest you create another google account that is based on a US address.  I have 2 accounts in my mibox. One local and one account with a US address.  You can easily switch accounts under playstore it will show US apps not available in local Google accounts.

Thanks sir. I find it weird because my Mi Box 3 has it available. I thought the Mi Box 4 was undergoing certification of some sort.

So normal pala if our receiver decodes the audio na DD+ may drop out talaga

@kakashi03
I cant say its normal because a lot more folks would be complaining if that is the case.
To me, i attribute it to possibly internet speed or maybe hdmi handshake. Does not really bother me too much so ive not tried to find the real cause for it.

It eventually went thru after a reboot and a further wait of 15 mins...
