I’ve been using my Xiaomi MiPad for streaming and miracast but I hate miracast its not solid and all you want is a fast reliable stream no buffering no cut outs etc

So I jumped in and bought the OTT TV BOX on ebay £56 posted quad core S812 amlogic S812 chip (latest chip)

So it boots up fast and runs OK except the wifi 5ghz signal is halved around 40ghz and on ethernet its halved again so I’m miffed how a 100mbs ethernet box is running so badly on direct cable or 200mbs powerlines ??? any ideas ? support is pretty average for these boxes it seems.

Google isn’t your friend when searching for the M8S very limited

The search continues for SPEED and reliability

AceMax amlogic S812 M8s or also called ENY M8s plenty of stuff available if you search that make, M8Square box

Original Box firmware: M8S 4.4.2 Kernal: 3.10.33 (Apr 14 2015) Build: KOT49H.20150427 (27th April 2015)
