I'm still struggling to choose my first android tv box whether Himedia Q10 pro or Minix U9-H.

At first I was considering the Xioami mi box but after researching seem mi box to simple, himedia and minix can do more customization.

Himedia q10 can put 3.5hdd is a plus point to me. Minix not sure what are the pros to himedia?

I don't get it at the first post saying minix has more tv apps compatibality, what tv apps not compatible with himedia q10 pro?

if you don't need a heavy duty box, get a kacang putih box will do. around RM200.

Second this as well. Maybe when my budget is there, i will aim for himedia / minix. For now my Beelink mini mx 3-2 works really well.

Minix better for apps support and more importantly for Kodi (Minix are diamond backers for Kodi).. other apps such as hypptv, aotg, iflix, etc... There's a dedicated thread on the official forum for apps recommendation and ask for fixes to be implemented in the next firmware update.. Purely English firmware..PQ gets better with each update, excellent support (a bit snoobish at times, but they get things done..so overlooked)... Device is by a group that stands by and based on the Neo U1, should handle what current stuff is thrown at it.

HiMedia Q10Pro... There's a dedicated thread.. Hang in there a bit.. in summary: good non-kodi hd audio passthrough support, good PQ and customizable as per your eyes.. Disk bay if for those who prefer such over an external HD.. etc..


Edit: As for listening to those who say you should get a RM200 box.. Know this.. Stuff is good till it's no longer.. Both the Kancil and the 7 series go from point A to point B.. If you had the budget, which would you rather be in for a long distance drive or in an accident? biggrin.gif

Tq guys. Actually at first i want to built htpc but come across this android box. I'm willing to fork abit more for my first tv box, still cheaper than built htpc. Later can impress my sibling with this good box, they only using astro. Plus i just bought 4k tv, i need good source.

Tqvm for your summary, ts should pin this at the 1st page. I'm really appreciated it. I will lurking more in that model specific thread. After seeing this I'm toward more to minix u9-h, dont mind to use external drive as it got 3.0usb port, easy to copy paste also right.

Btw, what is PQ mean? Hehe

well this is my history of these tv boxes:

G-box Midnight 2 : 1st tv box, play offline movies. lots of updates and bugs
Old laptop - Windows 8: slow ...slow... very difficult to select menus
Old laptop- upgraded to windows 10 ...slower - menus better though
Minix z64 on windows 10 : now i start streaming movies!, but it is slow, jerky and frequently runs into DNS problems which never fully resolved.
KM8 Pro : cheap, quick, responsive...unfortunately Kodi ahemm... addons dying and have to do more then necessary maintenance.

All the which with those boxes I also have my astro running as I do not seem to find good service for EPL Football.

Next box, will look at box with legal streaming service

PQ is short for Picture Quality.

Good sources? That's the trickier and easy part.. The general understanding here is if you can find the source and your device can handle it? Then good. Do NOT buy such devices expecting Ast** level support or features.. Some sources are free and others are paid.. Depending on your requirements, neither the paid or free route is the "best" option all the time, as some services come and go. Generally, paid is better cuz you just sign up with a decent provider and they handle the streams for you. Free? You'll have to go hunting yourself and maintain.

You mean illegal streaming service posing as legal streaming service...? Reliable full HD epl sources can be tough to find. Rest assured, they are available.

Your England is fine.. Even the British and Americans don't see eye to eye on it. No need for ego deflation, you are the TS of a worthy page one. As for the post, copy and paste or incorporate into your words also can.. Fine by me.. laugh.gif
