Good people of MyBroadband...
I’m no techie so I beg your indulgence. What app can I download onto the mi box s to view my cctv camera feeds? I have had to go the route of using the mi box because I want to view it via Wifi on a TV that is not smart and the location of the TV does not make it possible for me to use HDMI cables.
On my phones I use Meye and MeyePro. They work just fine. I have tried to install MEye on the mi box and I can’t seem to get it to work. I see nothing.
Any suggestions on what other apps I could try (even the paid ones).
My DVRs (I have 2) are some cheap ‘generic’ ones (inherited with the house, so no idea what makes they are (I think I saw something like ‘toplink’ on the one though.)
As always, any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Im thinking out the box here, perhaps you can connect the DVRs to a crappy PC that has a TV tuner in it, then hook the PC up to your network.

You will need a BT mouse & dongle to control the DVR, not sure if this will work as it needs drivers?

Then you can RDP/ teamview into said PC.

I dont know, just thinking out the box.

Thank you, Riskster...I could follow you up to the part about 'RDP/teamview'. I will be in touch about how to do this part.

Have you tried the Ezviz app? Not sure if its in the playstore for the mibox - but it works on most analogue cams I have came across.

If its available in the play store there is a Lan Live View button near the bottom of the screen, when you press that it will scan your network for any IPs that is broadcasting video feed.
