    can this new box get OTA or do we have to manually update like with the previous NeoX8-H? Also can we use the same drivers if we have to update via the tool? TNA

    It depends on the firmware version you have installed. Go to Mbox settings->Other and let me know the build number.
    All is explained here:

    Hi There,

    I just received this box and have the date listed as 20141122 so I'm guessing I need to upgrade the firmware. My question is should I do that before I use it at all? What is the easiest way to upgrade? Thanks and I apologize if I'm asking a stupid question.

    That's odd. I don't have the disc. Where did you buy your device?

    Hello! I upgrade my minix neo x8-h plus to the latest firmware (002) , however when i go to the settings and do online upgrade the box take to much time (like 2 minutes or more...) to display something (no firmware available for example).
    The OTA servers are working properly ?
    I know in other media players boxs (old ones , not minix android) i have the new firmware request time take a few seconds.
    Do we have to do a manualy firmware upgrade in the next firmware upgrade ? or via minix box upgrade is not a problem?
    Thanks

    The OTA is not working any more. You should have a new app called 'system update' (with the minix label) and I think that is the one that will be used from now on.
