Hi,

Wish to make old CRT TV little bit SMART TV.. main motto is to watch SonyLiv Programs, YouTube & Oreo TV and some Educational Pendrive

Can you please suggest any Android Box up to Rs.3000/-?

Thank you

Before you buy any android box you might need a HDMI to AV converter since a CRT TV will only have an AV port. Fire TV or MI stick should work with this connection.

old CRT TV don't have HDMI input, where as most of the android boxes output via HDMI cable. ( or check/find if something output in composite)
if you check your TV model and what are the various input your TV can accept.. and then plan acordingly. mostly it will via composite (red-white-yellow sockets) or component (red-green-blue) inputs.

you might need an adaptor something like this - https://www.amazon.in/dp/B087CYQ78R/

You can use the remote provided with the Android box/firetv/mi stick to search or type to get to the desired app. No need for any keyboard.
