[Bugs] Xiaomi Pad 5 Widevine L3 and not L1

I bought a Xiaomi Pad 5 and the tablet is great but Netflix, Prime Video and Disney+ are all blocked in SD mode because Widevine DRM show L3 level and not L1 level as it should be.
The tablet is on MIUI 12.5.2 Stable (RKXEUXM), no update is proposed when cheking.
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Netflix/Prime/Disney, it doesn't work.
When will this bug be resolved?

I hope someone can help.

I didnt flash the rom, I used the tablet as it is. It's the EEA ROM (RKXEUXM).

For information  i checked with DRM info app: when I boot the Xiaomi Pad 5, it's on widevine L1, but when I open Netflix, it plays in SD and Netflix is showing L3 support in the settings.
Then after some time even in DRM info it's changing to widevine L3 and not L1 anymore.

Yeah the exact same bug after the error 500.-116.
I hope it will be fixed soon. It's a shame to advertise a tablet that support Netflix and others streaming apps and have this bug!

There was many Netflix app update during the last week but the problem is still here:
Netflix app crashing, widevine level change from L1 to L3.
I also got Netflix error 500.-117 now instead of 500.-116 but same bug anyway.
