    Without english language is another useless product same as their routers.
    Is that hard to put dual english/chinese language on them? Even those living in China are not only chinese.
    For a pretended “Global company” they are very narrow minded.

      The 3rd edition of the Mibox comes preloaded with English. The original Mibox was never meant for sales outside of China, they even said on their website that it only supported Chinese language. They actually told customers from English speaking customers how to “jailbreak” it for English language.

        Nobody talked about media players but about the damn routers that don’t have even English language included. None of their routers have English language on nor the possibility to install custom firmware.

          My bad thought you were talking about the Mibox. Xiaomi’s own website though specifically says the router is only available in Chinese. Just because they are available on re-sellers doesn’t mean they are meant to be sold outside of China.

          Just buy a different router there are hundreds of them available….

          Thank you Gizchina for mentioning me! The router is in chinese but since is a web based interface you can use google chrome to translate everything in your language. That’s how I have made an review about the router in the greek miui forum. Yerstaday Hugo announced TV2 with english ui. Let’s hope this is a start!
