I have the Mi Box S. Latest update was applied and everything works fine, but.... I cannot turn the device on with the remote control, no matter what. The remote will turn off the device and all other functions on the remote works 100% when I operate the Mi Box, it is only when I try and switch on the device that it is not responding at all. I have to physically remove the power cord and plug it back in to boot successfully. I have unpaired and paired the remote a few times already - no luck. Batteries are brand new and I have tried another set also.

Anyone else experienced this problem before? Thanks
Have you fully reset the device after the update? Otherwise you you could try removing the remote from devices and repairing

Does anyone perhaps know how to fix the Hisense HDMI CEC issue where switching off the Mibox doesn't automatically switch off the TV (switching on works fine). A bit irritating without seamless integration, having to use two remotes. Always worked fine on my Samsung TV.

I set my LG tv to automatically switch off after 5 minutes if no source is detected/not in use... if that makes sense...

Only use Mibox remote, once Mibox is switched off tv switches off 5 minutes later by itself...

Same problem on 2 x Hisense TVs. Tried many settings with no luck. I do the same as @Singhms. Auto TV switch off after 15 or so mins. That's the minimum on Hisense I think.

1 x Samsung works fine.

Any essential tips and tricks I should know?
Apps that I should sideload?
Best way to get sport working on it?

How do you get rid of the YouTube ads? Sideload YouTube Vanced?

When using APKs like CinemaHD, FilmPlus on Android TV, and the Mi Box S, how do one get back to the APKs home screen from a full page ad if the back button on the remote doesn't want to work? Without adding another remote through a phone or trackpad or mouse.

Is it even possible?

Hi MDE,

I have done all of the above. It still the same. I have even considered buying another remote, but the device is brand new.

Anybody get random freezing on their Mi Box S?

I've had the MiBox S for 3 years now, and freezing is its game - especially in YouTube.

It's random, but happens frequently enough for it to be annoying. No software update has ever fixed this.
