  3. It's not perfect (it lacks an ethernet port, it has only 8GB of internal storage and it has only one usb 2.0 port) but it does the job done, plus, it gets updates more frequently.
  4. That's an issue plaguing every Android TV device, I have a Xiaomi Mi Box S and a Mecool KM9 Pro and it's the same problem, apparently it's a bug with some Android TV core update, a fix is supposed to be coming soon.

  6. Of course I answered point 1: By the look of things the ATV495Max won't receive the certification anytime soon, there is however a Netflix program called "Hailstorm" which should accelerate that process but I haven't seen or heard any news about it: https://medium.com/@NetflixTechBlog/hailstorm-the-netflix-scaling-solution-over-android-tv-fd169366f828
  7. 1) The only certified Android TV boxes with Netflix certification are: - Nexus Player (discontinued) - CCC Air Stick 4K - Dish TV SmartVU X - Elsys SMARTY - Ematic Jetstream - Google ADT-1 (discontinued, only for developers) - JBL Link Bar - MarQ by Flipkart - Turbostream - Nvidia Shield TV - Pixela 4K Smart Tuner - Seiki - Android TV Dongle - Sharp Aquos AN-NP40 - Xiaomi Mi Box - Xiaomi Mi Box S Not all devices are available worldwide, the popular ones are the Nvidia Shield, the Jestream, the Mi Box and Mi Box S, if you wanna know more information about this and other Android TV devices and Televisions certified by Google, you may head to this website made by a developer not affiliated with Google: https://www.androidtv-guide.com 2) Yes, it has been in beta for quite some time but it's better to wait than to get a firmware not optimized for the hardware, for example, I currently own the Mecool KM9 Pro Classic and although the Android 9 Pie is snappy and fast, the Wi-Fi is a mess, it's buggy, slow, unstable, looks like they deployed the firmware without testing it enough.
