Please post any bugs or issues with Firmware 006 (20170810) here.
For non rooted devices only!
In Kodi in fw005 I had a problem that is now solved in fw006, regarding frame freezing:
So now everything is fine in Kodi about the playback, but in SPMC the 'not smooth playback' still exists, even if the settings are the same in both apps (see that post regarding SPMC)
I still have "Shutdown" issue. Click on "Power Off" button in Power menu.......appears green led on machine after shutdown....not completely turn off machine
On some apps "drag and scroll" mouse not work (Minix A2).......
For now that's all what I've discovered
When "show status bar" is on, apps is cut off in the top (chrome/youtube and maybe more).
And plz fix the scroll function on A3 in chrome.....
Scroll function in chrome or gmail still not working. Spotify and cc cleaner apps are not responsive.
If you install Spotify and try to login you see the problem. No Spotify account required. You will not get fat enough to need it.
Otherwise all good for me so far.
please check... microsoft play ready drm NOT supported in this version. anyone please reply if its also like that in your unit.
Kind Minix Staff
today, after the OTA upgrade of mine U9 firmware I am not able to play movies in Kodi on my LG 60 inches HDR 4. Kodi starts apparently normal then , when I attempt to play a movie the screen go black and signal is lost so I am forced to off an then on TV to see video on screen.
If I disable in Kodi the movie auto /switch frequency adjustment option , then movies play normally .
Anyone can help me?
It has been temporarily disabled in this firmware (private conversation with @MINIX - Ken ). At least HBO Go (USA) will still work because it falls back to software DRM. There is a playback issue that needs to be fixed by Amlogic.
After some tests :
1080p/4K mkv 23.976 fps playback is smooth, no more issue like frame freezing (http://www.minixforum.com/threads/after-fw005-tiny-frame-freezing-in-every-movie.17043/)
HDR - framerate switching bug is gone.
Noise reduction OFF enhance video sharpness for sure : great picture.
Thanks Minix for this update, great job.
P.S : with the new colorspace setting, what is the better choice for 4k 10bit 24fps playing?
Ok i read your good reports so i searched further.
Only small bitrate movie could be played fine on my box.
I changed the original HDMI cable to another one and tada ! i finaly could play 4k HDR movie smoothly than ever
It's even smoother than with FW005, really close to perfection !
Only few 4k HDR 23,976 files gave me a black screen after framerate change (no signal). I don't know why yet, i have to check the bitrates, the profiles. All others are OK
Image is clear an sharp, no stutters even after a seek.
Good job Ken
Only one thing i want to know. How a working configuration could fail after a firmware update ?
The original cable was here at the early begining and i could play all files with old firmware... Some colors issues but it was a bug which is now corrected.
A cable could die even if it wasn't moved ?
Since the latest update I can no longer access my SMB shares in Kodi I get an error which says
"Error 2: share not available"
only thing that has changed is the update
see screenshot below
Problem 1, is your MCU firmware updated?
Please go to Settings -> Advanced Settings -> MCU setting -> Check for MCU updates, see if it's Version V1.
On some apps "drag and scroll" mouse not work
This is caused by the Android webview bug,
uninstall any updates you've installed.
GOOGLE have to fix it... we can't...
the version we preloaded used to works fine...
We've disabled it temporarily and will enable it in the next update,
working on some fixes about it.
To everyone: You need to clear the Kodi app cache after each OTA update.
I can't see audio passthrough option anymore. Anyone has this problem?
That's a feature... not a bug... it's called refresh rate switching... it doesn't hurt your TV by the way...
Re-enable it in settings after each OTA update... all settings are being reset during OTA update...
May I know how to? I couldn't click on that area.
First of all, clear the cache of the Kodi app first.
