    As I use Minix's XBMC, I post a bug here even if I think it has more to do with the "original" Kodi itself. Anyway: if I create a new profile and ask to copy all settings and library, I can't get the "Movies" and "Series" menus. I tried all sorts of things like creating a blank profile and it seems that outside "Master_profile" you can't get the UI to display these menu elements. Any thoughts?

    the video playback quality is definitely better when you choose : video layer in output video from OSD layer in the playback settings.... but unfortunately in return , you get blank screen in the default YouTube playback (the YouTube android tv version is working properly , but lots of people prefer the default one)

    It works with OSD layer output.
    This is a known problem of video layer and it can't be fixed.
    That's why OSD layer output will still be the default output.

    YES! Can't always have the best of both worlds.
    That's why we make a software switch instead.

    Are you using 010 beta firmware?
    IF yes, which video output layer are you using? Video layer, or OSD layer?

    Very easy in fact - turning noise reduction off.
    Shall leave this job to the TV instead.
    I can't really tell the differences between on & off anyway.

    Use MINIX XBMC. Will be transcoded by default.

    Hello Ken,

    Very good work with Output Video. Many apps work better inclusive Archos Video Player (the issue with wrong aspect ratio is solved)!

    If is possible please add in the final version a shortcut (notifications bar, power menu, anywhere could be easily accessed from the current app), since some apps work correctly with OSD layer and others with Video layer. Would be perfect if we could make this change quickly.

    Thank you in advance!

    No, we are turning it off in our firmware.
    I mean Amlogic's noise reduction.

    +1 on this, quick access option world be spot on, even a remote function like a long press of a button or something?

    Ken, does Chrome work correctly now?
    ie: Drop-down context menus have never functioned correctly.

    ixbt_com/multimedia/video-methodology/other/watch-1920x1080-24p.mp4
    ixbt_com/multimedia/video-methodology/other/chaos-1920x1080-24p.mp4
    
    And so playback this video in Movieplayer and confirm that center not blurred.
