    I bought a couple of MXS Android boxes on the old auction site, and here's a couple of pictures of how close the remote control is when compared with my MINIX NEO X6 remote :

    And yes, all the functions appear to work on my X6 regardless of the screen printing on the lower two buttons.

    Same supplier?

    I'm not sure, not the same supplier that I bought my MINIX boxes from for sure. The motherboard in the generic remote is a different color with different printing, but the plastic moldings appear to be close to identical and the only outward glaring difference being the screen printing on the rubber buttons and the MINIX logo. The click and feel of the generic is the same, the buttons all have the same IR function when used with the MINIX box, even though those lower two have a mouse and mute icons.

    The box is distributed by Cewaal. Many issues, but nothing terminal.

    I meant Minix and the other box manufacturer are using the same supplier for the remote or the remote casing.

    I've actually seen other media devices that have a remote the same/similar to the A2.

    That's nice to know, but how does it relate to the op?

    I think you've misunderstood. The op bought a different brand box and the included remote was almost identical to the remote that Minix includes with their boxes. No one is talking about cloned boxes

    Yes, the cheap S905 box I bought came with a remote that was almost identical to the X6 and X8-H Plus remote.

    The actual box is nothing like a MINIX device and I'll briefly explain why :

    The version of Android Lollipop on it is incomplete and buggy.
    The box arrived with a bloated version of Kodi on it, absolutely packed full of none working addons, and porn.
    Horrible launcher, a bunch of apps that didn't work.
    Google Play services and Play Store were not installed.
    There is no support site, there are no firmwares that are readily to be found.
    The power supply is cheap and questionable.
    The thermal profile of the box when under load is probably an issue, I may need to cool it.
    It is an orphan and nobody cares about it.

    What about Mi box 3....Would that be full of porn??? You won't believe I received the Minix box from Amazon and that was loaded with porn (4k quality)
