However, many users who updated their Mi Box after receiving the OTA notification yesterday on their Mi Box are now reporting that their Mi Box 3 now getting several new issues including ‘No Sound‘ and ‘Black Screen‘ after downloading and installing the Android Oreo 8.0 update on their Mi Box 3.

Xiaomi Mi Box 3 Android Oreo 8.0 Solutions

Unfortunately, there is no solid solution to fix these issues. However, some user who faced the issue tried different techniques to fix the ongoing issue on their Mi Box but nothing worked. However, a user reported that he was able to fix the ‘No Sound’ on the Mi Box.

He tried to turn off the Dolby and Surround Sound and rebooted the Mi Box and the sound problem was solved. But the method didn’t work for everyone.

Some other users found the fix for No Sound issue by Disconnecting the HDMI cable for 3 seconds.

Another solution shared on the Reddit suggested that ”Don’t update if you have an AVR” After following the distinction on the Reddit I found a Mix of several issues and solutions users have shared.

However, one major thing which is suspected to be causing all these problems is the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), which many of the users are facing at the moment. Unfortunately, there are no fixes so far for all these merging issues.
