Can't click on anything on the start screen - MiBox

Post by DanielMz » Thu Mar 04, 2021 10:28 pm

Hey, I just bought the emulator to use it on my MiBox S, but I can't click in any of the options (continue, load new game, change options or exit) on the start screen.

I can scroll through them, but when I click it, it doesn't do anything. I've tried different controllers and joysticks but the problem persists. What should I do?

The OK button on your remote should select the options as it does on most Android TV Boxes. Unfortunately it seem Xiaomi change it in a way that it doesn't work on all apps.

If you're using a bluetooth gamepad, you may have to press a different button because on some devices, the B button is the OK function rather than the A button.

Also you could try some apps that will give your MiBox S some mouse functionality like these two:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... n_US&gl=US

https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... ousetoggle

If neither work, you could try plugging in a USB mouse on the rear USB port. The left click acts as a touchscreen tap.

Yeah, I had already tried the Android TV app and it didn't work aswell.

Anyways, apparently my bluetooth gamepad wasn't synching it properly to my MiBox. After a factory reset, the gamepad started working flawlessly on the emulator. Thanks for the answer.
