Mi TV Stick wifi and chromecast issue.
Yesterday I purchased a Xiaomi Mi TV Stick. The device for this price is not bad, but the lack of a USB, for example to upload the software or save from bootloop, is a huge minus. This is not the biggest problem. The device itself works even smoothly, until I'm surprised, unfortunately not everything works as it should.
I have the following problems:
Now I have some questions about this MI TV Stick:
The device is not expensive, but it is not cheap either. Yesterday I was wondering whether I should return the device and collect money for it. I bought it in an authorized Xiaomi store, online. Initially, I had a nice impression of the appearance and fluidity, at least the one for the start, because it will probably change later, because the device has not enough rom. However, what surprised me, upset and disappointed me, that such a modern device that has the 5GHz wifi specification cannot in any way search for 5GHz wifi and connect to it at a distance of 10-15cm from the router or even lying on it. This alone disqualifies the device from being recommended and purchased for me, and Xiaomi's lack of reaction in this direction is simply astonishing and discourages me from buying. And the device is not cheap enough to forgive it. Two for the chromecast to be so hopeless as well, I did not expect, especially since, as I mentioned, I have a much cheaper non-branded Chinese box and it works without a problem. Another thing is the lack of a usb, what is this invention these days? After all, in these times, multimedia is the basis, and saving the device is difficult.
Another thing, many people have complained that after the update, the device slowed down very much, freezes, reboots and shuts down. That applications are shutting down (FC) or restarting that there are system liquidity problems. Well, I read about some problems, despite the range of good wifi and connection to the router, there is no internet. It's this update what I got? Was this problem in another update but is resolved in the next ones ....
Also a request to you, please tell me how to connect to 5GHz wifi, how to fix the chromecast and whether to update the system. The update is downloaded and ready to install. Otherwise, if the problem is not solved, I will return the device and recover the money. Because at such a price, such mistakes are unforgivable, the more that Xiaomi does nothing in this direction and has no support at all ...
