Introduction


Xiaomi  TV or TV box has a 30 seconds time slot for advertisement and everyone is made to watch the advertisement.  There are a few ways to cut this unwanted advertisement.  This article introduce one of the easier way.

Note:  1.  Tested working in sets imported directly from China;
           2.  Works only for those ASUS or routers that has web history function
          

How?

When the TV is first switched on,  Xiaomi TV is programmed to  download  the advertisement or files from one or more of the  URL addresses to display the advertisements.  These URL addresses are
 

ad.mi.com
ad.xiaomi.com
ad1.xiaomi.com
api.ad.xiaomi.com
api.io.mi.com
b.netcheck.gallery.pandora.xiaomi.com
bss.pandora.xiaomi.com
config.kuyun.com
data.mistat.xiaomi.com
de.pandora.xiaomi.com
dvb.pandora.xiaomi.com
gallery.pandora.xiaomi.com
gvod.aiseejapp.atianqi.com
jellyfish.pandora.xiaomi.com
logonext.tv.kuyun.com
mishop.pandora.xiaomi.com
o2o.api.xiaomi.com
sdkconfig.ad.xiaomi.com
staging.ai.api.xiaomi.com
stat.pandora.xiaomi.com
upgrade.mishop.pandora.xiaomi.com


All one has to do is to set our home router to filter and block these URL addresses so that the TV will no longer be able to download these advertisement or files.

Other Methods

There are many advertisement blocking software available but they will  not work for skipping Xiaomi's advertisement during start up.  Moreover,  this type of software might contain information stealing Malware or Trojan or even harmful element.

How to Set Up the Router?

The following method is for ASUS RT AC56S but almost every router will have similar facility to block the unwanted URL addresses;

  1. Type in the URL address of the router in any browser.   The router address is defaulted to be 192.168.1.1 unless one has it changed before
  2. After entering the administrator's name and password,  the following screen will appear




      3.  Select “Fire wall”,  one will go into the firewall section
 
  1. Select the URL filter tab on the top and  then
a)      Enable the URL filter;
b)      Enter the URL addresses of the advertisement as stated above
 
  1. After typing or copying and pasting the various URL addresses,  press “Apply” and close the browser. 
      6.  You are set to have an advertisement free Xiaomi TV.
 Note:  One may have to 

a) Reboot the router;
b) Clean the cache and the files stored in the TV's memory using  Xiaomi's or Shafa's deep clean features;

If necessary,  unplug the TV and allow it to rest for 20 seconds to discharge all its memory before putting the plug back on.

  3. Thanks so much for this guide! It's important to note that blocking the wrong URLs prevent you using important features on the TV. As long as you block the correct URLs, those advertisements are gone for good! Keep up the good work :D
