    It's called REFRESH RATE SWITCHING, it's a feature that very very very few products would offer, especially for online contents!

    You may disable it:
    SETTINGS -> Playback Settings -> HDMI self-adaption -> set it to Level 1 if you don't like the switching, default is Level 2 (which switches refresh rate according to video source).

    After update from FW8 to 9, I get no sound in KODI or SOMC!
    Any idea?
    solved ... for some reason, the update has set the Vol. to zero!
    First, I doubted AirPin but stopping it didn't help.

    Upadte 2:
    it was AirPin ... after air playing music from iPhone and then stopping the airplay, i.e. returning to iPhone built-in speakers, the volume is set back to zero ... is that a Bug or a feature?

    This firmware, or the XBMC update, has killed 5.1 playback; it literally freezes the entire box, so I need to unplug the power cable.

    This worked fine in previous version. Any ideas?

    After some more playing around, let me add some details:
    I'm hooked up to a Denon AVR-1513, HDMI reciever.

    Minix settings:

    * Settings: Device -> Audio -> Digital Sounds = HDMI (Auto detection: OFF)
    * Settings: Device -> Devices manager -> Output devices = hdmi
    * XBMC: System -> Audio Output ->
    * Audio output device: "Android, PCM" or "Android, IEC Passthrough", tried both
    * Number of channels: 5.1 (fails), 2.0 (works when Enable passthrough = false)
    * Enable passthrough: false (works when 2.0), true (fails on all 5.1 material)

    This worked last firmware, although I seem to recall some "RAW" option, which is now gone. Not sure what IEC Passthrough really is.

    I don't know whether others experience like me or not,

    when I turn on/started the box it stuck at minix logo with android robot.. never ever experience in the two previous firmware. Lucky me the problem was solved after I turn off the plug and turn on.

    My curiosity is how sure this problem will be resolve or never happen to me again? sorry if this question make the admin clueless.

    I think the RAW option is available in SPMC, try to use SPMC or Kodi.

    What are the pitfalls of changing the device type from Phone to Android TV Box? Or is that not possible? Are there any problems that mean that it's not possible? For example, the PlayStore? Is there an Android TV Box version? That allows a remote to click through the menus instead of having to use an AirMouse?

    Cheers again!

    Have you tried Android TV?
    IMHO I much prefer the use of an airmouse!

    FYI - Your post isn't bug related!

    No issue on FW9 - but one on XBMC Minix 16.3 - all audio ouput from different movies (DTS, DTSHDMA, DTS-HD, etc ) are display on my Onkyo as DolbyDigital

    Come back to XBMC Minix 15.3 with same configuration (hdmi level 2 , passtrough, ...) - audio output are well identified and displayed on receiver (dtshdma, dts-hd, etc ..)

    My configuration : Minix U1 -> HDMI -> Onkyo TX-NR626

    Any idea ? Thanks ...

    So, I've tried SPMC also. The problem seems to be entirely related to setting "Number of channels" to anything other than 2.0, in both SPMC and XBMC. With it set to 2.0, everything seems to work fine again, including Passthrough enabled.

    VPN does not connect/disconnects
    I just bought the U1 and immediately updated it with the latest firmware (FW009). I want to connect to a VPN for streaming purposes but it disconnects
    frequently (after 15 minutes or so) or does not connect at all. It's an L2TP VPN with PSK. I'm not using an app to connect, but the default Android VPN settings.

    When I connnect with my Win10 laptop it works fine, so it's not something on the server side...

    Anybody a solution and/or the same experience?

    Thanks. I'll try it, but that would imply a server side change (which I'll do), so it is not a real solution to the issue... But I'll let you know if it helps.

    It's just a suggestion to compare functionality!
