Sony Android TV ba, sir?  If yes, you won't need this.

^ by your requirements, tignan nyo narin sir, ano talaga mga kailangan niyo.  who knows later, baka kailanganin niyo rin ng external media player pala =))

I have Sony 2016 x80D, below are its prowess per testing:

- if you're only playing downloaded movies in DTS/Dolby Digital
     -- via Kodi/SPMC, the Sony Android TV can decode it
     -- via Kodi/SPMC, the 4K (even HDR) can play without hiccups       
     -- no problem since HDMI ARC or Toslink port can pass-through upto 6ch audio to AVR or soundbar

-- it can read upto 4TB external harddisk -- I'm using its USB 3.0 port playing 4K (even HDR)
-- it can read external harddisk on NTFS or exFAT
-- on Netflix, check if you'll get upto 2K or 4K streaming - haven't been into Netflix yet.  so I don't know if Sony's 1GB RAM can manage the bufferings
-- on Youtube, I only get upto 1080p streaming -- mabagal pa kasi ang internet ko

what it cannot do for now is, decode Atmos nor pass-through HD-audio (8ch and up).  but it can decode DTS:X -- it just downmix it so you only get to enjoy its DTS 6ch core.  at least with DTS, Inc. they gave us the flexibility of what equipment we have

maybe soon, in 2019 or 2020 major TV brands will include HDMI e-ARC port.  this time, with HDMI v2.1 it can pass-through HD audio upto 32ch (they said).  i bet this time, we'll really not need an external media player anymore =))

Just to add, to get away with storage limit via USB, use NAS. 1-bay will do that supports SMB, NFS, AFS, and similar protocols

so far napansin ko palang is they added more settings sa display like color space, hdmi CEC now works when i turn off  and turn on the mibox.
i have yet to check the automatic refresh rate switching if it was fixed and also HDR.
youtube app now works as expected. wala na yung playback problem na black screen and will not continue to playback.
My Directv Now app after the update was so sluggish. It was fixed after performing a factory reset.
so far yun palang.

This thing is garbage..the box would not kick my QLED into HDR while streaming Netflix, Amazon or Google paid movies HDR 4k content. it only managed to 4k. btw streaming from HBO Go app is butt ugly only managed to cast 720p60. Good thing Globe gave it to me for free.

I noticed when watching Netflix on this, after a while the sound/voice gets out of sync. Need to pause it for a while and resume for it to correct the voice timing again. Has anyone experienced this? TIA

Maybe its high time for me to dabble into this type of gadget. Currently, I watch netflix via PS4 but I get confused with the  buttons of the controller when trying to navigate. Where can this device be purchased?

Anyone tried playing 4k bluray iso via hdd usb (3.0) connection and it is stuttering? I tried on MX player and nagstutter/skip sya eh. Need to know kung may tama yung iso file ko or di lang talaga kaya ng mibox ang 4k bluray iso. TIA

I've updated to Oreo last night. nawala nga yung issue sa YouTube and pansin ko ang bilis mag play, unlike before parang buffering pa muna ng around 5-10 seconds, after the update eh nasa 2 seconds lang nag play na agad.

yun lang may problem sa Kodi ko, na detect naman yung hard drive pero hindi ma browse. nung try ko sa ES file explorer eh na browse ko naman then nung select ko movie file eh nag play naman using Kodi hehe. labo, try ko ulit later else eh re-install ko Kodi.

Ang prob ko after the update, nagka stuck pixel yung display nya ngayon. Kala ko nung una TV ko it turned out yung player mismo merong stuck bright pixel sa upper left corner.  Then same as yours, detected nya yung external drive pero di nya mabrowse yung laman.  Baka pawarranty ko na lang.  Anyone knows paano mag pawarranty?  I got mine from Globe.  TIA

na try mo sa ES explorer kung na browse laman ng HDD mo? sa akin na browse naman, sa Kodi lang hindi. kaya baka need ko lang update/re-install Kodi.

about sa warranty, I forgot the name of the distributor pero nasa box yun nung MiBox, alam ko eh duon mo dadalhin yung unit mo at hindi sa Globe.

Kodi can't read HDD formatted in NTFS, dapat FAT32. Walang problem pag flash drives eh, pero pag external hdd ayaw talaga ma read. I think Kodi should release an update for this.

I have an NTFS HD and Kodi reads it.

Yeah. Wag mo na try. Nag factory reset ako afterwards pero naka oreo pa din. Update af your own risk unless meron tayong kasama dito na nakapaupdate to oreo and was able to access and play contents from an NTFS formatted drives.

not advisable pa nga mag upgrade to Oreo because of this issue with Kodi. I've read on some forums na affected din sila using Kodi on MiBox as I've posted above. hindi ko pa naman malagay sa flash drive ko yung mga files ko na more than 4GB kasi FAT32 mga flash drives.
