yes


What Internal  player you are using? If you are using Kodi Player, you must set the audio into Dolby atmos passthrough if it is available.

Default kodi player.
Atmos is not an audio format, metadata lang po sya. It can be included in  dolby digital plus, and truehd audio.

Absolutely correct! Di ko lang alam kung halata ba yung pagiging atmos if using only soundbar, infact atmos just only an additional sound effect from above other call it the voice of god, and you need a dedicated ceiling speaker or mounted speaker in the ceiling to enjoy it.

My Mi Box cannot enter the main screen. When turning on needs to update Sling TV. When I press update it shows Installing Update which doesn't progress. Hope you guys can help. TIA

no audio drop outs (nor any lags) on Kodi as per initial set up & testing (once) at my house.  disclaimer: we didn't watch any whole movie and I have not used a Mi Box since then.  I think baka lang sa pagset up mo ng Kodi, sir...

last Sunday, I was able to assist a friend get a Mi Box 3 from SM City Sucat -- P3.6K

when we set it up the 1st time at our home, with a fresh Kodi 17.6 installation, I can attest this Mi Box 3 can effortlessly play:
- 4K HDR BT2020 and 4K BT709 -- both 10Bit and 8Bit AVC/HEVC
- ATMOS/DTS:X pass-through without a glitch

we used the stock HDMI cable and have not (nor any foreseeable plans to) updated to Oreo yet.

my friend is now using it at his home with a 1080P TV.  4K losses its intended brightness, color and definition.  but the important thing is it can be downscale if your source is 4K.  likewise, his AVR is 5.1, so ATMOS & DTS:X audio are also downmixed.

it was the first and the only time that I had this in my hand.   my first impression: recommended.  it's superb for its very reasonable price.  =))

happened to me before, minsan ayaw na talaga mag connect sa wifi. what I did was to set the channel on my modem/router from auto to any channel available. after that, stable na connection ko.

Was able to pass through a 4k signal from my Mi Box through my ancient Onkyo 606 to my tv.  I'm a happy camper as I thought I needed a premature avr upgrade to get 4k to my tv. :)

I wasn't able to do it properly in the past since it turns out that I had inadvertently turned on upscaling on the AVR.  Now that I got this thing to work, it looks like I won't be upgrading my receiver until HDMI 2.1 comes out. :)

Just an update.  I did a hard reset on my Mibox and everything is already ok.

Hard Reset:
1. Unplug the power cord from MIbox
2. Plug it again
3. Press OK and Back button at the same time while Mibox reboots
4.  Service Menu appears
5. Select erase all data etc.
6. Reboot

Bought a vpn service and used it with my mibox for netflix. Able to get US content, but useability is on and off. I can use it one time then after a restart, i would need to change servers again. Just so anyones interested in doing the same, its not as convenient and straightforward as it sounds. Still cool to catch content thats not available locally. *flies away*

Thanks.

I am fairly new to streaming and 4k video files after having been attached to my mede8er 800x3d.

Is the mibox enough to do the following:

1. Play 1080p videos from external hdds and upscale it to 4k?
2. Play 4k HEVC 10 bit HDR movies?
3. Play 1080p and 4K Bluray ISOs?

Guys, I am having issues with Netflix sa MiBox S. There is no option to select Dolby Digital 5.1 in the audio. Nag install ako ng Kodi then enabled pass-thru nadedetect naman ng TV ko yung Dolby Digital 5.1. Any workaround? Latest Oreo update na ata ito.

You need an Audio Extractor. I ordered one from Lazada. Eto lang solution nakita ko sa mga forums.

There are quite a few android ISDB tuners available online that we can try out.  Most are generally under 1k in price.
