    I have installed XDA on the Xiaomi Mini TV Box but it does not respond to sliding using my blue tooth touch keyboard. How can I can slide on Rii Mini keyboard with touch pad? It show direction of sliding but when I try to slide on the touch pad only the mouse is moving with no action from XDA. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
