I have a love hate relationship with my Mibox and its mostly due to erratic playback performance. My biggest gripe with this Android TV device is the complete lack of refresh rate switching support in all apps including Kodi. Hopefully the upcoming Oreo update fixes this which apparently it does indeed do according to beta testers.
Update: Oreo has been available since 22nd of June and it does not fix Refresh Rate switching. The real kicker is it also has more issues including the inability to read external media; see this Xiaomi Forum for more info.
Please note, this Android TV box comes in a few regional flavours, the one you need in Australia is the Xiaomi Mi Box (MDZ-16-AB) International Version.
