I think that was the UK version at £49, this is HK import.

That may be correct, didn't see that in the model number at first. Assuming this might come with a non-UK power supply then? Strange if it's fulfilled by Amazon, wonder if anyone can verify?

One of the questions answered by a customer suggests that this model did arrive with a UK plug, if that's any [small] consolation.

Pls update me about Apple TV:- can I mirror EVERYTHING on my iPad/iPhone to to my TV?

Is it possible to return if not UK version

Comment[quote=FULLHD1080]Pls update me about Apple TV:- can I mirror EVERYTHING on my iPad/iPhone to to my TV?

Yes yes

not being silly here really, but what does this actually do? and would it have many benefits without owning any other apple products?!

most things but some apps such as Skygo will not mirror to tv! I heard there is an all new Apple TV on way so thats probably why these are dropping in price.

Yep they do!

I prefer an openelec pi. Cheaper & doesn't have a nasty aftertaste.





Waste of money, the Amazon fire stick/TV box do 100 times what this does.

I know for sure that HK use the same type of plug as the UK.

HK officially uses same plug and voltage as the UK (being a former colony), but when I was there a few months ago I visited a few apartments and noticed people were installing Chinese plug sockets because of all the cheap electrical goods now imported direct from China. The Chinese plugs are crappy like American ones - fall out easily.

if you update your iPad to iOS 8.3 go to safari download vshare then download movie box you can mirror all the latest movies and TV shows to your TV

Please, enlighten me.
Seeing as my Chromecast doesn't mirror my apple devices, surely this is a better product if you already have Apple products....?

Thanks for this , am trying to do,what you've typed - so far I have went and registered @ vshare , haven't got any further...I'm on an iPad atm...appreciate if you can break it down for me.

Google vshare
You'll have 2 options
Download unjailbroken /Jailbroken
I'm not jail broken btw
Then you'll be asked if you want to install so select install your also asked if you trust the app so select trust
When vshare is installed
Go to searchbar and search
Moviebox
Select the top result
Select download
When finished select install
Select trust again if it pops up
Then when that's done you should be ready to go

Sorry to stay off topic, but is there a way to 'cast' the Movie Box stream, or download, to my Chromecast (as I can on Android)? Or do I need to an Apple tv to mirror my iPhone?

Why is it strange?

Mirroring is very different to 'Airplaying' just for clarity. Moviebox to Apple TV via Arplay

Took mine back as stopped playing any films on moviebox, if you want to spend night trying to play a movie that keeps stopping it's good

No, not everything, my Apple TV 2 can't mirror sky sports from iPad 2 or Netflix although there is a Netflix app that work fine. Ps mine is jailbroken doubt that makes a difference. Never use my Apple TV As I understand it's a 'dead' unit in terms of software support.

Hong Kong use the exact same plugs as us. There will not be a different plug in the box.

New Apple TV is coming oson

Amazon tv box is much better and they are only £64 now.

The only problem is you can't mirror iPhone, iPad or Mac on it. Depends what you want it for.

I got an android box, chromecast & apple TV - none are better than each other, as I use them all for different things.
Not one device does everything I want to do. Hence, I need a combination of devices.

Moviebox is very good but popcorn time.io is even better high quality streaming via airplay from your pc or Mac straight to the Apple TV

Is there anyway to Airplay or whatever from Movie Box to chromecast? Or even use my iPhone to stream my downloads from my networked hard drive to chromecast without having to turn on my old Android phone?

Getting sick of my iPhone 6+ limitations. It will be back to Android for me when I need to get a personal phone again, since I don't use iTunes either.

Hong Kong uses the UK plug standard and voltage.
