小米盒子 vs TVPad

One of my friends bought 小米盒子 (Mi) in HK and brought it back to me to compare with TVPad. I actually think 小米盒子 is not bad but I want to summarize the difference:

小米盒子:
Good:
1) Cheap ~ roughly you can get one for $50-70 USD in HK
2) Lots of apps you can install for HK, TW, CN movies, TV, Sports, Games, etc

Bad:
1) Too complicated for elders to use-it is more like iPlayer, which depends on installing apps to watch free stuffs.

2) If you installed 泰捷视频 and VST聚合 then you can watch TVB and live TV streaming for free, but it has tons of problems that it still stops every 10 mins or so when I tested it. Continue reading

You still can use iPlayer to watch World Cup

While TVPad is totally down, you can still use iPlayer to watch World Cup.

Using iPlayer also can watch World Cup matches on TVB Paid Channel (無線體育台), so you will not miss any match!

Good luck!

Slowness in TVB Playback app for World Cup

I know a lot of people are trying to watch World Cup Playback(粵海寬頻2_3) from TVB these 2 days and we notice that some people can’t watch the playback. They see the “spinning” image keeps loading and there are no programs afterward. Actually it does work, and all you need to do is to click “left and right” on the remote to switch the tab. It should load the playback programs afterward.

Also, whenever you see something wrong, always restart TVPad and it should be fixed after.
