43 inch - BUGS
Android security patch level at the time of review: 5 October, 2019
The default media Player on my MiTV 4X 43 inch, running Android 9, does not change the video mode to full screen or fit to screen no matter the setting. As it turns out, video modes such as Stretch, Fit, Center etc do not work in any video player whatsoever; tested in Kodi, MX Player, VLC, and Nova Player using a variety of SD and UHD videos.
Additionally, I recently had to reset the TV (no other way) because the shutdown function on the remote had stopped working. A look at Mi forum shows that many others have also faced the same issue yet no fix.
Also the power button should turn off the screen instead of fully turning off the OS or bring a proper sleep function.
Waiting for a quality update that fixes the UX.
Please share your experience with the software on these TVs.
