Mi Box S updates to Android Pie 9 but is already experiencing problems

Among the many products that Xiaomi has presented in recent times there are not only smartphones and products belonging to theecosystem Mi such as blenders, smart phones and household products. One of the categories of products that has been very successful is those of TV Box, or those boxes that placed near your TV allow you to use all Android applications even on it. The Mi Box S it is among the Xiaomi devices in this category and it effectively transforms a TV into a smart TV. In the last few days the Mi Box S has updated to Android Pie 9 but right away the users found some problems. Let's see in detail what it is.

Mi Box S updates to Android Pie 9 but is already experiencing problems

As said, the Mi Box S is currently receiving the update to Android 9 Pie. This update via OTA Weighs 624.3 MB, the same size as the previous update a Pie beta 3. As a matter of fact, the stable update has the same build number 2231 of the previous beta and therefore those who had already installed this version do not have to do anything. At the end of the story it is a transition from stable to beta of the same package.

In addition to Pie, the update also brings the update to security patch dated 5 November. Improvements but also problems not solved in reality, since the same found on beta 3 are also present in the building. In particular, users have complained of problems related to pairing bluetooth, the selection of the display mode and the automatic random switching on of the TV. Here are some complaints from Reddit:

“I tried to pair dualshock 4 with my xiaomi mi box s with the new 9.0 update and it continues to“ pair ”and it never ends. Any way to fix it? "

"Hi, there doesn't seem to be a 4K option on my Mi Box S. I've tried several HDMI ports on my 4K TV and the option doesn't seem to appear, no help would be appreciated."

“Hi, after updating to the latest version 9 I am having some problems.
When I close the mibox using the remote control and try to turn it back on using the controller I found that my Samsung 4K HDR TV is not able to obtain the correct viewing mode and I receive this message: "mode not supported". After restarting all my devices several times (mibox and TV) the mibox sashboard was "correctly" displayed but only in 720 x 480 ... I tried to activate the automatic adjustment for the mibox and I also tried to force it in 4K 60hz and it doesn't work ... Any ideas? "

These are just some of the problems encountered by users. It is unclear why the developers did not make corrections to the problems already present in beta 3, but it is clear that users certainly don't appreciate the work done. We look forward to further news and you too do the same.

I am a language student, specialized in Chinese. What brought me closer to Xiaomi is having discovered that there are valid alternatives in the world with a good quality-price compromise. I believe that the awareness that perfection does not exist in the world of smartphones must be put first of all, in order to avoid unnecessary and sterile controversy about the supremacy of one or the other brand.

That of pairing is the least of the problems with bluetooth ... there are much worse that I have collected here https://www.reddit.com/r/MiBox/comments/emorct/mi_box_s_bluetooth_issues_with_pie/

The serious thing is that the support even denies that Pie was released and the developers who followed the beta testers page are completely gone. The product has become unusable and there is no way to roll back.
