Bug: random MAC addresses

    I updated my X8H+ to 002 firmware, after which the device started switching its LAN MAC address every time when it's powered down and back up. This is very annoying as I use Constellation (iPad app) to control XBMC, and the ever-changing MAC requires me to reconfigure Constellation settings on a daily basis. I have set up my DHCP server to assign a fixed ip address according to MAC address, but of course it doesn't work as the MAC keeps changing!

    Unfortunately I'm still in the process of determining exactly how many MAC addresses does the X8H+ use, or is it just generated by random. Thus I can't really provide any other info about the bug. Anyway it's a rather serious one and I'd like to see it fixed.

    Has anyone else noticed this problem? I know it's a close call, but are there any chances of getting this sorted out to the next FOTA update (end of january or so)?

    It's a known bug of firmware 002 and we have fixed it on the coming 003 firmware.
