    Hi Minix,
    Ive updated to the 004 Firmware FOTA (2015.04.02)

    I saw that one of the listed improvements was the Gigabit Ethernet.
    Unfortunately, it seems to have made the Ethernet worse, not better.

    In 003 firmware, I could transfer a 4gb file in about 5 minutes. Its now considerably slower at about 20-22 minutes.
    The transfer speed has dropped right down.
    I haven't changed any apps or doing anything different, only running the new firmware.

    The video 'stuttering' seems to have gone thanks to the improvements you've done with the auto framerate switching updates over 003 to 004.

    for Ethernet speed, we shall observe comments from other users here before making any conclusions. Our tests were faster before we decided to release it.

    video quality should be better as described.

    thanks.

    I am transferring files using ES file explorer, in case you want to test it yourselves.

    Buffering issues when streaming seemed to be fixed or a lot better.
    Just the file transfer speed has dropped a lot.

    Thanks. Stupid, I didn't look there yet I was searching for a forum thread with the change log. 004 is not listed in the official firmware releases.

    An XMBC version with audio HD passthrough and Blu-ray Menu Navigation (more detalis here http://www.vidon.me/vidon_xbmc.htm)... but we need a Vidon XMBC Pro version or maybe a future Minix XMBC version will suport audio HD ( Vidon "trick") Or ... we have in 004 a "Vidon XMBC" now ? I have to chech with an audio HD file.
    Hope Minix Ken start a thread (or write here) with more explanation about 004 update.

    do a factory reset if you think it's unstable, we have been testing it for days before releasing it.

    Ok, but I have 1000Mbps line ( and Plus have a GbE port !) and 92Mbps was very easy to hit with X8-H (sold and buy X8-H Plus for GbE port and Wifi ac) ...
    I will proceed today with a hard reset hope this will resolve some of my problems.

    Any comments about Vidon XMBC Pro (audio HD, BD navigation menu) ?

    everything looks fine here, and maybe a bit faster moving around and loading apps as well.

    Sorry, but don't see the relevance to test GbE port and Wifi ac speeds with 100Mbps connection

    I logout now ( and I do a hard reset on my Minix Plus) ...
