    You said you will do an update for the "neo x8h more" to 5.1.1 once stable. yet you have already released version 5.1.1 for the NEO U1. When do you get the version for the "X8H more"?

    Hi just a quick reminder. X8 H is different from X8 H plus. It has been said that lollipop is in new devices like U1 and will not have in X8 H or X8 H plus.

    Why would lollipop not work on a X8-H Plus?

    I really would like to get lollipop on my x8h plus cause the kodi 17 only works on lollipop and higher.

    For h.265 support in Kodi, you need Lollipop.

    Well the kodi 17 will have more features and I want to use the new estuary skin that can't work on the kodi 16, and most likely I want the lollipop features on my Minix neo x8h plus.

    i cant comment on Kodi but you don't need Lollipop for SPMC being able to play h265 8 bit files on x8h+

    I think this is the case with most, maybe not you.... Don't really really need at this point but just want the latest .:)

    How would you get Lollipop on the X8H plus? I like to keep all of my software on the same version. My phone has updated, my tablet has updated, not my minix.

    Dear all,

    We shall release a Lollipop based firmware for X8H-PLUS in March or April,
    based on the last SDK released by Amlogic (May 2015).

    This is not within our original plan because of the lack of support from chipset vendor,
    but we understand lots of you want it and therefore we shall just make one.

    Kodi 17 will work but will not be fully functional.

    Please note.

    What kind of functionality is expected to be lost on Kodi 17, on the promised Lollipop update?

    I would hope that the minix team may find a way to circumvent the audio passthrough issue on a lollipop version for x8hplus and kodi 17.

    I suspect prime use of minix is for kodi and that a significant number of users utilise their surround sound systems ...this is like good news / bad news :(

    I don't need the more advanced 7.1HD passthrough capabilities since my surround system doesn't support those formats, but losing DTS and DD 5.1 passthrough is a deal breaker to me.

    Seems that I have to convince myself that my beloved Minix box has reached the end of the line... It's time to search for an upgrade..
