My review so far

Std Kodi seems to crash though I liked it as it comes installed with plenty addon, need to get rid some. So still testing Kodi
Kodi Media didn't function at all, maybe need to reinstall? Where do I get it?
Couldn't add on YouTube for Android as it doesn't allowed to install from USB, maybe setting issue...hmmm
WiFi is great

Overall... Disappointing compared to Sunvell T95M I had for short time

Ok, YouTube (from PlayStore) working fine 1080p no problem, however i still prefer the version Youtube for Android (might install this to see how it pens out... icon_idea.gif

Looks like I'm gonna reinstall the Kodi all over again this weekend bangwall.gif bangwall.gif

Unable to install app from thumb drive, something to do with parsing, dunno what the hell is it, but portable hard drive it can detect (wtf... bangwall.gif)

Simple addon like Exodus & Salts (can't play 1080 smoothly), VidTime, Phoenix that came with it is not working as usual.... dissapointing

Of all, the remote is super flimsy and has to be operated from 4' distance... vmad.gif vmad.gif vmad.gif

Times like this the Q16 Quad Core is premium while the Sunvell T95M is the best entry box ever personally tested (wifi even better than GT1)

Kodi long shutdown most likely due to some of the plugins. Its standard Kodi behaviour even on PC. Some plugins doesn't follows Kodi's standard causing the extra wait. Most of the time u can find which is the offending plugin when u go through the logs.

Yup, shut down is terribly long, hopefully it'll be shorter after complte re-install or maybe I'll just factory reset

Format thumb  drive to default

My cases.. It auto detect like win pc

Buffering ..  A lot of reasons ..  Other user  also stream content(YouTube ) if using dual band..  Lock wifi to 5ghz only..

I'm very happy with RTN12hp router, on Q16 & T95M, youtube doesn't buffer even at 1080p using only 2.4ghz. However on Speed Test, the GT1 wifi achieved only 50% of the connection speed while Q16 & T95M gets 90% of the speed (30mbps) which is much better

Also, i've noticed the wifi for this device is quite weak. Using speed test i've got only 10Mbps, compared with my ipad and nexus 6p at the same location recorded around 28-29Mbps. However using wifi sweetspot with beelink GT1 got average reading around 35Mbps.

Your experience is consistent with mine when i had it...

Finally received the Mini MXiii ii bought on behalf of a friend yesterday morning and had it setup using AresWizard which was a breeze.

Smooth and snappy as expected based on other similar spec. Installed others like Rice, FlyingFox, TV2.0 etc etc etc without drama using the stock file manager. Wifi connected very well.

However encountered 3 problems..

- There's an update but when i tried via OTA, the installation encountered error

- The video brightness in Kodi, apk and even other movie file played seems slightly darker

- There's this small icon that appears on right middle of the screen, can't figure out yet how to remove it

But for now, it's good overall

Box arrived, managed to do factory reset. Reinstall everything, looks OK,. No LightHome error yet, there's a ln OTA update but failed to update not sure why.

Any idea what improvement this new update 19-1-2017 brings to MXiii ii?

Still unable to install new update despite it being able to download...Hmmm

Anyway, this may sound a bit crazy, I realised the box kinda suck the Unifi data when i install app from Play Store.... So much so it affects the Himedia on my ground floor...

Can you share what is the error message for the new update?

My son called to informed it finally updated when he was trying it this morning. The start up improved and exit of Kodi is a tad faster

So think it's OK now. One thing I like abt this box is that the UI is better than A95X especially when you exit an application it goes straight to home page.

The A95X Nexbox will go into a blank screen b4 home page pops out which is annoying and slow
