What is a laser projector?

Who never got anything from Laser projectors who will probably think of a laser beam, similar to a laser pointer, which throws the picture on the screen. In fact, however, laser projectors use the long-established projection technologies, such as LCD or DLP. Replaces only the lamp technology. Instead of a lamp, a laser module is used, which is equipped with numerous laser diodes, which generate the light beam. The advantages of a laser beamer are above all one longer life (~ 5.000 hours vs.> 20.000 hours) of the laser module, compared to the conventional projection lamp, as well as a lower heat output, whereby the warm-up and cool-down phase approaches zero.

History of the Xiaomi Laser Projector

Over the past few years, Xiaomi has built up and expanded its own home theater division. The starting shot was made with the Xiaomi Laser Projectorin the summer 2017 for the Chinese market and was also the most expensive Xiaomi product at the time at the equivalent of € 1300. As an import, the laser projector also made a small breakthrough in Germany. The only catch was and is the Chinese MIUI, which is difficult to adapt for local users.

More than a year later End 2018, the Xiaomi laser projector is in one "Global Version" published. Instead of a Chinese MIUI, the projector is used Android TVthat benefits the international user. Unfortunately, what sounds like a strong advantage over the Chinese model also has some disadvantages. The Global Version does not have a 3D function and offers fewer display options.

Beginning 2019 Xiaomi has released a revised model for the Chinese market. The Xiaomi Laser Projector 4K is, as the name suggests, a 4K laser projector. A 0.47 inch DLP DMD chip is installed again, but the projector now understands Pixel shifting, creating a (fake) 4K experience. The Laser Projector 4K has not yet been released as a global version and is only available as an import.

All models of the Xiaomi projector

The Xiaomi laser projector is now available in 8 different versions with different manufacturer and model names. The manufacturer of all projectors is "Fengmi Technology Co., Ltd", which was created in 2016 in cooperation between Xiaomi and Appotronics.

Equipment of the Xiaomi Laser Projector

DLP technology and short throw projection

Let us now deal with the equipment of the Xiaomi projector. The projector uses the Digital Light Processing Projection Technology (DLP), The image is digitally projected onto the screen via micromirrors. The maximum resolution of the 0.47 inch DMD chip used here is included 1920 1080 x pixels (Full-HD). As Short-throw projector or “Short Throw Beamer”, the Xiaomi Projector is able to project a particularly large image even at the shortest possible distance. This results in multiple possible uses, such as enabling an appropriate home cinema experience even in the smallest of spaces. The Throw ratio is 0.233:1, The lossless projection gives Xiaomi up to 150 inch

Xiaomi Mi Laser Projector Test

Advanced Laser Phosphor Display 3.0

The used laser module of the beamer is based on the "Advanced Laser Phosphor Display 3.0" (ALPD 3.0) Technology of Appotronics. This manufacturer is best known on the Asian home theater market and is already one of the largest suppliers of laser technology there. The module consists of GaN-based, blue laser diodes. Primary colors are generated by illuminated color filters. The lifespan is according to Xiaomi at least 25.000 hours, The lumen value of the Xiaomi Short Distance Beamer is included 5.000 ANSI lumens, This value is sufficient to produce a sufficiently bright image even in non-darkened room. Of the NTSC color space will be with up to 85% covered, that Contrast Ratio is 3.000:1, A Keystone Correction (Keystone correction) is possible.

Xiaomi Mi Laser Beamer Review

Smart TV function

Depending on which model you choose, the projector is equipped with a different user interface. The chinesische Xiaomi uses Laser Projector MIUI TV, based on Android 6.0. Das Union Model uses again Android TV version 8.1, There are also differences in the TV box hardware used.

  • MIUI TV Box: Amlogic T968 with Mali T830 GPU | 2GB DDR3 and 16GB eMMC
  • Android TV Box: Amlogic T962 with Mali 450 GPU | 2GB DDR4 and 16GB eMMC

Similar to the Smart TV function of a TV, the Xiaomi Mi Projector is with one Dual-band AC WiFi module and Bluetooth 4.0 fitted. This means that playback material can be streamed directly to the projector. MIUI TV is however withheld from the Chinese market. The user interface is completely in Chinese and does not require Google Apps. The Google PlayStore, Netflix, YouTube and other useful apps are missing.

But also the Android TV of the international model is not the yellow of the egg. As already mentioned above, the 3D function is missing and there are fewer setting options for the image. Streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime are also of limited use. Due to the lack of Widevine L1 support, Netflix can only be streamed in SD.

The firmware of the international and Chinese models is not compatible with each other. Android TV cannot be flashed to the Chinese model! The Chinese MIUI TV user interface can, however, be used with a Settings app to 75% in English translate. The following steps are necessary:

  1. The startSettings.apk (Link) and copy to a FAT32 formatted USB stick.
  2. Connect the USB stick to the started projector. A notification window appears. There select the first option.
  3. Select the APK file. A warning message for apps from unknown sources appears (Chinese).
  4. Confirm with left selection (OK). The settings for apps of unknown sources are called automatically. Then install the app.
  5. Open Settings in the app selection. Scroll to the “globe” to change the language. Select English.

However, the numerous and mainly for the Chinese market specific apps remain on the system. Of the Google PayStore can be installed via a sideload.

HiFi sound and connection options

The Xiaomi Mi Projector comes with a total of 4 speakers equipped with 2 full-range speakers and 2 tweeters. The system supports sound at the cinema level DOLBY Audio and DTS HD. connection options These include 3 HDMI 2.0 jack, one with ARC support, two USB jacks, one USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0, one 3.5 mm audio output, one AV input, one S / PDIF jack and one Ethernet jack ,

DTS and Dolby Audio

other

The Dimensions of the projector 410x291x88mm and Weight: is 7 kg, To protect the eyes, the Xiaomi Beamer also has a sensor that detects movements in front of the screen and darkens the image. The input is at maximum 250 Watt, According to Xiaomi, the projector consumes less than 0.5 Watt in idle. The Fan noise gives the manufacturer with less than 32 dB at. The device is delivered including a multifunctional remote control.

Practical test of the Xiaomi Laser Projector

Brightness, black level and contrast

Xiaomi gives it Brightness of the laser with 5000 lumens. The brightness can be regulated via the 3 projection modes "Normal", "Cinema" and "Highlight". There is no eco mode! The brightness measured on a 90 inch projection surface (Gain 1.0), in the center and in the brightest "Highlight" mode is included 1035 lumens, The measured Black Level is 0.43 lumens, The measured contrast ratio results 2419:1.

View of the front of the Xiaomi laser projector with Dolby Sound

Daylight suitability

The projector is rather unsuitable for projection surfaces> 90 inches in daylight. Enclosed test images, on a conventional 130 inch projection surface in daylight and in the dark. Better results can be achieved with a High Contrast Screen (ALR) achieve. Such a canvas, however, gladly costs more than 1000 €.

Resolution

The projector resolves in 1080p with a maximum of 60 Hz. The 4K upscaling works without problems. Individual pixels can only be recognized when viewed very closely. The definition is convincing overall and the sharpness distribution towards the corners is not objectionable, even if a slight blur can be seen. Here is an overview of the distances.

Short distance distances

Grayscale and color rendering

With the factory settings, a lot of blue is added to get a brilliant white. Generally the colors are from Rec.709 standard far away. From the factory, the Xiaomi projector runs in a shop mode with really bright colors, so to speak. Image enhancers have a dynamic contrast mode and a dynamic color mode. If you calibrate the projector, you can achieve good results, which are only accompanied by a slight loss of brightness and contrast. If you do not want to calibrate yourself, you should select the color temperature "Warm" in order to achieve reasonably precise results.

 

default settings

"Warm" color mode

Sound and volume

The Dolby audio system delivers excellent sound. Lows are clearly noticeable A really great speaker system and better than some sound bars.

The sound pressure level measured at the laser projector was 42 dB. At a distance of 3 meters, a value of 27 dB was measured. The volume is acceptable. In quiet movies, the fans of the beamer are indeed heard through a high-pitched hum, but at normal playback volume, the hum is largely submerged.

Connectivity options for the Xiaomi Laser Projector

MIUI TV and OSD

The menu navigation is a bit tricky, since only 75% of Chinese can be translated using Settings.apk. But you get used to it pretty quickly. The Smart TV function is mainly aimed at Chinese users. Android apps can be installed via sideload. Netflix is ​​not supported. Kodi runs up to version 17.4, the Kodi Fork SPMC is executable including version 17.6 Alpha 2. The integrated MediaPlayer is very good. It plays pretty much everything! Connecting a Chromecast, Apple TV or any other TV box to the Xiaomi Laser Projector is no problem.

In the meantime it is also possible to root the projector. Both XDA Developers (Link) resourceful developers have the Mi ProjecTivy Tools released, which add useful functions to the Xiaomi laser projector. The OSD is integrated in MIUI TV. There are setting options for keystone correction (4-fold and 8-fold), the manual focus and the display (projection mode and color mode). There is no such thing as an intermediate image calculation. The only image enhancers are the dynamic contrast mode and the dynamic color mode already mentioned.

ceiling Mount

Ceiling mounting is possible. There are threads for a bracket. The image can be rotated 180 ° within the settings, i.e. turned upside down (flip mode). It is also possible to project the image mirrored (Mirror) and both combined, i.e. rotated and mirrored (Flip & Mirror).

3D and gaming

The projector (China model only!) Supports this 3D DLP link Format. The display is pleasantly calm and bright. Ghosting does not occur. Switching between SBS-H / TAB / FP is possible via the OSD.

For Gaming the Xiaomi Laser Projector is less suitable. The Input lag is with more than 65 ms clearly noticeable. There is a special gaming mode, but this is only an additional display profile. Image enhancers are not automatically turned off in this mode.

input

The im "Normal" mode measured power consumption is 180 Watt, In mode "Cinema" and "Highlight" the intake increases to more than 210 Watt. The Stand-by consumption is acceptable 17 Watt.

Summary

With the Xiaomi Mi Laser Projector, Xiaomi presents a well thought-out product with decent equipment at a low price. Comparable short-distance projectors are hardly available in Germany below € 1300. I really like the simple design, the overall good picture quality and the very good sound of the Dolby speaker system. Points are deducted for the volume of the fan. Although this is just acceptable, it is quite distracting in quiet scenes.

What you should pay attention to before buying are the different models of the Xiaomi Laser Projector. If you choose the Chinese model, you get the Chinese MIUI TV instead of Android TV. But the projector supports 3D DLP link, which is unfortunately missing in the international model. It is recommended to import the Chinese model and use it with an external TV box. Because even the international model with Android TV has problems with relevant streaming services such as Netflix or Amazon Prime due to a lack of DRM management.

The price is really an announcement. Already months ago I had planned to get a beamer and rejected it very quickly because I did not find anything suitable for me. A laser DLP projector with 5000 lumen intensity would be even for 2000 € the hammer. Please bring out a test. If that is good, it will be bought immediately.

Frederik W.

Do you think the price will fall yet? At least for the World Cup, I need a good projector.

Frederik W.

Great, thanks for the information!

beer lovers

Hello, I have some questions about this projector. I hope you can answer this.
1. Which 3D glasses are used?
2. Do you need a special screen for laser projectors?
3. How to replace the lamp?

It would be great if you could help me with that.

beer lovers

Hi Timo,
Schonmal a thank you for your answer. What you write sounds really good. But I would still like to wait for your test report. Do you already know when it's coming?

beer lovers

Hi Timo,
has the beamer already arrived at your place?

Don Perignon

Hello Timo, thanks for this post. I have such a part and I am very satisfied - the Chinese menu tarnishes the use a bit. In your article you mentioned the possibility of changing this via a theme launcher. Since I (Mac users) are not familiar with Android, I would be very happy to receive further links.

Don Perignon

Thanks for the quick reply - good man!
I'll call you after the WE and let me know.

Don Perignon

To install the app from an external medium, you must first set the hook in the projector's settings and allow this. The new Settings app will then be with the others. It is not possible to switch to English as the corresponding language library can not be found. If you somehow get on the device, it should funze. Sorry but thank you!

Don Perignon

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Giy91xRRSrToNINGR5d9eHaMA9_DuzMt

here are all comp. Find apps for the projector - including the Settings app. Works for the most rudimentary settings if you choose English (not US).

Thomas Fischer

Very fine is also that the remote control of the projector with the AppleTV 4K understands, so that one of the Apple only for playing (motion sensor) needs.
I am sure that this projector will change the home theater market in Europe - in terms of quality and price. I wish you a lot of fun with yours!

Christopher Cuckoo

I'm moving into a new apartment soon (in February) and I'm thinking of getting this projector instead of a 65 inch TV. I have no problems shipping from China and I am very satisfied with xiaomi anyway. Is the beamer suitable as a TV replacement? Normally I see series and movies about the nvidia shield and games on PC and ps4 pro. Normal television is not more. The windows can all be darkened by external blinds. I think the price will be in the offer at about 1300 Euro in the next few weeks. Then he would be very attractive price. Are there any fundamental objections to the projector as a complete TV replacement? The power consumption is indeed very moderate and the life of the lamp anyway. The width of the screen would be about 210 cm and the seat 4m. Maybe someone has a similar project and can give tips... Continue reading "

Christopher Cuckoo

Hello Timo,
Many thanks for the answer. That you should not save on the screen is aware of me and already planned. I thought of the self-construction of a frame canvas with high-quality fabric and matching masking. I've looked at a few test videos, which are all very positive. I'll probably just start the trial and get on the next offer. If necessary, you get rid of the ebay again and again. Is it possible to send via priority line without problems?

If someone notices a good offer, he can write it in here. Definitely interesting for many more.

Can the projector receive hdr signals? Has anyone ever tested this?

Thomas Fischer

Hi Timo, I'm projecting the image onto a very dark - almost black wall. I know that sounds absurd at first, but it is possible with the light output and ensures a rich black. The surface must be absolutely flat, otherwise uncorrectable blurring will occur. Woodchip wallpaper is absolutely taboo, as the projection angle would create many small shadows. There are screens with a special micro profile for these short distance projectors, but they are anything but cheap.

Patrick Blum

Hello, I have ordered my Xiaomi laser projector a few days ago. Ordered at Gearbest not even 4 weeks ago. I landed here because I've been working on changing the language for three days. That it will be necessary, I was so clear when ordering. Way 1: Google apps install manually, ends in chaos. Way 2. Only the app def settings installed and opened, then open the Google Installer. But the installer does not install the third point, and then install the points then then not synonymous. If I use my IPTV box H96pro +, with all the media libraries and KODI, makes the projector really fun. Picture is in my very bright apartment during the day still ok to look. But it is current as dark outside. The purchase of a canvas, I can only approve, only then it makes really fun., At least my wall is not not smooth enough, The built-in speaker system is for film (cinema)... Continue reading "

Hi,

The update says that the Google PlayStore can be installed via sideload. Are there instructions for this somewhere? Can't find anything about it on the web ...

Thanks in advance!

krigl

Hello Timo. I have the apk on a stick, the projector also recognizes the file. But I can't find out where the menu is, where I can “allow” to install something from USB ... Can you help ?? Greetings from Switzerland, christian

Micah

Good article! I look forward to the detailed test.

For my part, I am torn apart if I would improve myself with something like that. Currently I have a 8601 55 in 4 inches and 1080K. The size of the viewable image of Xiaomi is of course not debatable, because he wins without any doubt. What I'm more interested in is the sharpness of the picture, especially with 4p content and a PlayStation 4 Pro which, while not native to XNUMXK, still delivers good sharpness.

Hanspeter


You probably already have the device, can you recommend it? I would like him as a replacement for my 75 inch Samsung LH 6470. What do you think, suitable for daylight or not?

LG

Hanspeter

Hello Timo !
Could you take a closer look at it?
Interframe calculation? Suitable for daylight? Your intermediate result?
My TV DEVICE is broken and that's why I'm asking, so I can order one.
Thank you

Do you sell your copy and for how much?

Hanspeter

Hello Timo !

Overall, that doesn't sound good. At 5000 lumens, more should be possible than half-way blinds ...
I think you helped me a lot, I prefer to wait for the LG HU80K.

And thank you ????

Lukas

hi, thanks for your tests! We are considering buying the part for the company - but we were told there is no “CE” mark on the part, so we are not allowed to operate it (in the company environment) - can that confirm or refute that?

thx

Frank

Hi Timo and thanks for the sharp test! One more question. Can I play UHD BD, Netflix 4K and others with the Xiaomi projector? Greetings from the Frank

Sven

I would be interested,
1. how big the diagonal is, if I only have a cabinet that is 40 cm deep. So from the wall, to the front edge of the beamer I have 40 cm.
2. Whether your import tax / duty had to pay when ordering in China?

Thank you

SPiderJoe

Good evening. I understood that you can not use the projector's Smart TV because there are many Chinese apps installed and there is no such thing as Google Play. Could not you simply root the beamer and install the Play Service as a sideload? So at least that has worked on my Mi TV Box 3, which now even runs on the Android TV Launcher!

Andreas

Thanks for the test.

I have a question that has not been resolved so far. Can the device also be operated overhead?
Thank you for your answer.

Jonathan Peiss

Does anyone know if you can connect a universal remote control with the projector?
I'd like to have my Bose remote as all in one

Peter Krass

Have a Broadlink Pro over which I can control all my radio and infrared remote control by PC.
However, this does not support Bluetooth. However, the projector is controlled via a Bluetooth remote control.
Did not understand exactly with the CEC. Most universal remote controls send yes infrared and no bluetooh, the projector can still be operated with an IR remote control anyway?

Philip

Hello Timo, thanks for the very helpful test. Can you already say something about input lag while playing? Does not have to be an exact measurement, an emotional statement would be helpful for the time being. Lg P.

Marco

Good test! I'm looking forward to the final test. I'm already tingling my fingers. I would strike for 1300 immediately. What is the additional cost? Import / value added ?!

Marco

Hi,

Now there are some warehouses today. GW-4 GW-16 GW-5 GW-6
What is recommended? Consider slamming today. Thanks LG

Marco

Ok, thanks for the quick feedback. I'm still hesitating between the Xiaomi or a Benq w1700. The Xiaomi has the better application options due to the short distance. Laser is not to be despised either. I'm just afraid that the package will die on the way - or that there will be non-transparent additional costs. Furthermore, the part must be operable by my wife 🙂 It doesn't have to be tormented by deep China menu when a source is connected, does it?

Marco

OK thanks. So the projector has your blessing - I read from all the information 🙂
One last point. You have experience with 4k upscaling. Is 3.840 x 2.160 actually ejected? Significant improvement in qualifying? Thanks for the quick feedback.

Marco

Sorry, how do you mean the HDMI 2.0 enable? I think the device can only 3.840 x 2.160 @30 at 4k output?! For me, a Ps4 Pro should be connected. The part can indeed no native 4k. but I would like to find out if it represents an improvement, for example to the Benqw1070 FullHD. Many Thanks

Frankie

Hallo,
Cool part. But you can also use it for “normal” television. Is a tuner built in? If not, what options do you have?

Vladimir

Hello, is that possible to use Amazon prime, install it, log in, too, I come on selection page, and then nothing, same with Google play (only install), otherwise very good projector especially with gray screen, and with the tip: focus on 0.

Andreas

Hi where did you get the information that the projector from the summer 2018 in Europe for 1300 € is sold?

That would of course be great because then you would of course have the following advantages.

2 years warranty
cheaper price
pure Android menu in German
EU plug
Better customer service

Your statement is the only thing that keeps me from buying from China (EU Wahrenlager).

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Andreas

Andreas

Thanks for the quick reply.
Do you prefer to wait or strike now?
Do you see the benefits of the European version like me or do I have a bug in it?
Do you have an equivalent UST Projector from Germany that you can recommend to me?

Thanks in advance

Andreas

Ok
I would like to pair the projector with my iPhone best wireless and use the SKY Go app.
Is this possible without problems?
If so, Androit tv would be negligible.

What do you think of the specified 5000 lumens?
Pure marketing or refers to the indication of the output power of the laser?
You write that you measured 1035 lumens.
How do you compare to other UST projectors?
Is he better or just equivalent?

Thank you very much
Andreas

ThomasMagmar

Hallo,
I would like to hang the projector overhead on my ceiling and then control the projection size via drawer rails.

Can someone give me the thread sizes and distances of the 4 holes on the bottom?

Vll also has a better option for it

Tim

Hallo,
How did you make the connection between the projector and a 3D-DLP shutter glasses?
Regards

Andreas

I'm struggling with the same problem right now. I still have two Toshiba FPT-AG02G glasses from my TV, which do not connect automatically. Even when I go to Settings> Devices> 3D, a “Please wait” appears, a long wait and then one is thrown out of the Settings app ...

Is that due to my device or are the glasses just not suitable?

Thomas

Hello Timo,
Thank you for the detailed test.
Actually, I wanted to have a 4K projector for PC gaming, as the field of view for shooters or racing is significantly larger.
How does this behave exactly with 4k imagery?
Do I have the same field of view as with native 4k, just stop in 1080p?
Sry, I didn't quite get it ...

Hasipapa

Hello. After the great comments and explanations on this page, I almost came to the conclusion that I would get one of those sweets. I only have two requests. Is it possible to name the width and height at 150 ″, so that I can build a screen, and is there a possibility to output a list with an explanation of the individual Chinese characters of the menu with the German translation, so that one can also without Update can shimmy through the menu. Thanks to everyone and Happy Easter wishes Hasipapa

Hasipapa

Hello Hello.
I calculated my first question myself.
60 ″ 132 x 75 cm
70 ″ 154 x 88 cm
80 ″ 176 x 100 cm
90 ″ 198 x 112 cm
100 ″ 220 x 125 cm
110 ″ 240 x 137 cm
120 ″ 264 x 150 cm
130 ″ 286 x 162 cm
140 ″ 308 x 175 cm
150 ″ 332 x 187 cm

These are the approximate screen sizes. I hope that helps others too.
But I can not do that with Chinese, so I need help.
Happy Easter.

Hasipapa

Hei Timo.
Thanks for your quick reply. The translation is not so hurry. But thanks for that.
I have to negotiate with my seller first. This may take a while.
So. And now I wish you a happy Easter.

Hello Thomas.
Thanks for the answer, but with English spoken I am at loggerheads.
AAAAber. Almost at the bottom of this link there is a link to download the language app in English and a sequence of images to install it. And I can understand that. This is also a good help. Maybe we are lucky and the Chinese programmers have a heart for foreigners and give out an international language app to install. By the way. I should get the new piece of jewelry in the next week. I think this will be great. I still have one stupid question. I calibrated my age 60 ″ only after two years via YouTube. And the result was amazingly better. Have you ever tried something? So, thanks again, see you next time.
Greetings Rainer

I won't get my projector myself for 1 to 2 weeks. In various forums, however, I have read that there is no “generally perfect” setting for contrast values, colors, etc. because there are many different factors such as brightness in the room, type of screen ...
You may like to apply a suggested setting times 1: 1, but would recommend spending some time and playing around. Since every person has a different sense of perception.

In summer, the projector comes on the European market. Was already presented at the MWC 2018 in Barcelona. There is then a global Rome multilingual and think times, that you can then transfer this Rome on the beamers from China.

Thanks to you both. I used my replacement projector HDP 1590. It works with 2500 Lumen. If you throw the 5000 Lumen at the other with the other, how the feeling is so flat. Twice as bright or even four times or how is that then? Just asked.
Have a nice weekend

The projector has at the light source 5000 lumens, on the screen (Leinwanmd), however, there are only 1 / 3 thereof (1666 lumens). However, the brightness is rated very high in all tests. Even in daylight (no direct radiation on screen), the image is still easily recognizable,

Hello Timo,
Please excuse the question, is the complete assessment of the projector finished? Or is there something else?
How far in your opinion do I have to sit away from the screen to acceptably view a movie in HD quality on an 100 inch surface? Could it be that the image is too coarse pixelized due to lack of 4K resolution?

Thank you for the fast answer! I look forward to your final report!

Hello ... Is it possible to adjust the image size continuously?

Hasipapa

Hello Hello. I've had my Xiaomi projector since Thursday and three things stand out when I start it. First, the fan is loud, but is only noticeable in very quiet scenes and second, the picture is awesome. Thirdly, there is a loss of quality among private broadcasters with their low picture resolutions. The picture can of course be adjusted continuously from 55 ″ -150 ″. The entire picture rises from 10 cm to 49 cm from the floor. So you have to have enough ceiling height. After three days of testing, I found a setting for myself like this: Brightness: 62, Contrast 29, Saturation 39, Sharpness 60, Hue 53, Colors Standard. I'm always available for improvements. A screen or a smooth white wall is the basis for enjoying a movie. The conversion from Chinese to English went without any problems due to the many help on the Internet. GAMES: So far I've only played "Sniper Elite 4" and the difference between one... Continue reading "

Hello. I found a replacement for the Youtubeapp. OGYOUTUBE-v4.2. If you have to install it also install MicroG-for-OGYT-v2.0. So. Now I still miss an exelenter Browser. Many thanks and greetings from Norway

Hasipapa

Hello Timo. Many Thanks.
I want to make a comparison video between the Philips HDP 1590 and the Xiaomi mi laser later. Otherwise, I'm looking forward to the World Cup.
Greetings to all.

Is there anything new regarding the European version with Android TV? Is it likely that there will be a separate ROM for flashing existing devices separately?

Karim

Moin, that would interest me too! Unfortunately Goole doesn't spit anything out ...

Nikolaos Vasiliadis

a pity

Daniel

Does the projector have any hardware buttons, or do I always need the remote control? How does it look like if I want to use it as a pure playback device? Do I always land on the MIUTV surface, or does he remember the last source and give it back when turning it on?

Daniel

Well, then I just answer my questions.

The projector has no hardware buttons. But: Apple TB via ARC HDMI connected and you do not need the original remote control anymore. Apple on = beamer on, Apple TV shut down, beamer goes out. Hammer.

Only to change the input you need then the remote control.

Nikolaos Vasiliadis

great thank you!
Can you recommend it as a TV replacement? Mainly because of the fan ...

Herr Lehmann

The fans are definitely too loud. However, it is a rather pleasant rush. Disturbs only in quiet scenes.
I'm sitting about 3m away from the projector.

Niko

Thank-you

Totti

Hi,

Where does your info come from with the International Version and Android TV? On the Global side, the device is not listed at all and except here, I find no information at all, which should give it an international version.

Totti

Hi Timo, but you're quick 🙂 Thanks for the link. Hadn't found it even under “All Products”, so it doesn't seem intended for the public yet.

Typhoon

Hi Timo,

link to the Weman One Pro does not work .. Can you please take a look up?

Hello everyone. According to the latest information, Xiaomi has launched a new 7000 lum projector. At the moment it should only be available in black. But is not sure. The connections are the same and the picture settings are the same. It “only” gets brighter. Definitely noticeable in the daytime area. Well, have fun. By the way. I've had the 5000 model for almost two months now, and sport is just awesome. In terms of size, the difference in quality between private television (banding) via HD-West (spots on large faces) to ARTE or Sevus-HD is enormous. On German television, the differences between cheap productions from ARD and ZDF and films from America are just as different. But playing (me with PS4) is a pleasure. By the way. It's a laser projector. If the screen moves with a normal projector, areas are blurred, with a laser projector only the perspective changes.... Continue reading "

Here is the SOLUTION FOR THE 3D REPRESENTATION OF THE BEAMER, because the question has come up several times, has occupied me for a long time and, unfortunately, Timo did not answer in sufficient detail. After the 3D film has started and is already thrown from the projector onto the screen, you have to press the “Menu” button on the remote control. This is the button on the far right with the three superimposed lines. A selection menu is then displayed over the current film. There you select the display parameters and you can then select the 3D mode (SBS-H / TAB / FP). The 3D function is deselected by default. Now make the appropriate selection and enjoy the film in 3D (the glasses must of course be activated beforehand)!

Hellmann

Hi,

I do not really find information about the sizes. Since I am limited to 76 "I would like to know if you get it so close to the wall! Is there already experience?

Regards

Nikolaos Vasiliadis

The projector, as I understand it, can project minimum 80 inches.
Italy is already to buy International version Android interface, I'm considering ordering in there. Did you already buy it?

Nikolaos Vasiliadis

Hello Timo,

You write that for a 100 inch screen the height is 35.
How is the distance measured, top edge of projector or lower edge or sideboard?
Thanks in advance

Nikolaos

Hey Timo, thank you!
Could you please tell me if the fan is to be heard in normal living room movies watching operation? Have my concerns whether he is too loud and he annoying in the long run, if we should replace the TV with the projector.

Niko

Hello Timo,
does the beamer have different eco / light modes? For example, with the LG Allegro 3 light modes are available to save energy. The positive side effect is that the fan is also much quieter about 26 dB. Does the Xiaomi have such a function to unfortunately get the fan? Thank you in advance.
PS: Too bad that you can not test the projector somewhere live, that would make a purchase decision easier

Niko

Hello Timo, thanks for the quick reply

Karim

Hi,

are there any interesting coupons available?

Jerry

Hello Timo…

My projector goes for some time always after about 5-10min automatically?
Do you have an idea why it can be or where I can change that?

Adele

I would also like to know that, have the same problem

mxh

Hello, would like to set up the beamer outside under my carport with a portable screen, the projector is intended for this or should you do without a kurzdistanzbeamer?

Adele

No 3D after software update version 2.0.297.7.
The projector has updated to this version, since the menu item 3D is gone
does anyone have any idea where to find the menu now?

Adele

Alex

Thanks for the informative article. I am currently orienting myself. I took the following with me:
Mjjgyy01fm First model Chinese with MIUI
MJJGYY02FM First European Model with Android 8
MJJGTYDS01FM Second model 4K but again MIUI? Or are there also 2 variants here?
Thanks for the help
