Just because it says Android doesn't mean it's the best for tv. M8s pro L / w voice edition are officially Google supported tv boxes with the best for tv Android.
I was considering a M8S Pro L as it's one of the few affordable devices with Widevine L1 support - but then saw it lacks gigabit ethernet.. Are there any decent Kodi/Android TV boxes with Widevine L1 AND gigabit ethernet?
Both boxes are similar in terms of specs. I don't know what you mean by "true Google Android", both have Android 7.1.1. I still prefer the Beelink Ultimate which support MicroSD cards up to 64GB (twice the storage when compared to m8s pro), it has less problems with overheating and, in my opinion, the overall design of the box and remote are better.
Would a mecool m8s pro L with new mic remote and true Google Android same price be better?
Thanks, I'll try all those suggestions... ...tried the 4k Kodi fix - worked :-)
