If I am understanding correctly the MiBox beta is over. Have there been some documents generated for downloading and installing the app on a device not provided by the church and included in the bet testing? I have a second MiBox that i purchased and would like to install the webcast app but am not sure how to do it. thank you.

The webcast app could be downloaded from the Google Play Store. I haven’t checked whether it is still available from there

I did a quick check and it appears to be there. It's called "Meetinghouse Webcast".

Meetinghouse Webcast.
It has not been officially released as far as announcing it, but it is available to download on Android TV devices now.

I found it interesting that in the recent email instructions regarding the new webcast beta testing, the Mi Box wasn't included in the "Devices to consider" list. (Supplemental: Meetinghouse Webcast App, FAQ.) Was it not listed for a reason or just overlooked?

The Mi box is a great box and can be used. It wasn't included in the devices to consider because of a preference to recommend boxes with internal network ports. The Mi Box requires an adapter to connect it to the network and from experience cable adapters can have a short life.

Just an update....

We did officially release the webcast app and added the Mi Box back on the recommended list. We simply noted that it needed a USB to Ethernet adapter.

We did find a list of Google approved AndroidTV devices (see attached). There are a lot of device out there that appear to be AndroidTV units but are not. If you want something other than the two recommended devices provided in the MHTech article (https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/help/support/meetinghouse-technology/meetinghouse-webcast-app?lang=eng), please make sure the device you select is on this list.
