    Hi... just wondering if anyone could help me with an issue ...my minix neo x8h keeps losing signal while watching a movie or a tv show and returns to a blank tv screen and will only sometimes return automatically moments later or not even return back....having to constantly unplug and start all over again

    We are finalizing it and our original schedule is this month.

    To answer the question, it's not delayed or cancelled. :)

    Really, fixing bugs from obsolete version of Android is considered support?
    We are talking about 2 yrs of doing "fixes" on KitKat.

    Even Amlogic screwed their product buyers other boxes with their product didn't stayed on KitKat.
    Yes it is unstable maybe but running KitKat with ANY app today is even more than unstable or better to say unsupported.

    Yes, fixing bugs on the device specific release of an operating system is considered support. My NEO X8-H Plus and the official 011 version of the firmware is providing what I think is probably the most stable android box I have ever owned. As others have stated here, their MINIX box is running just fine without KODI 17.1 which of course, is the reason why most are getting angry with their old S8xxx android boxes and lack of Android 5.1. Let's not forget that Lollipop has it's own issues and is also now considered an obsolete operating system.

    I always thought fixing bugs by a company was called support
    Obviously @Dinko doesn't
    People should know what Android version is on there box when they buy

    Wondering if any firmware update for neo x8 H (+) would be applicable to the original neo x8 device?
    Would anyone know about that?
