    In that case, I'm not sure what the issue is. I assume you have the antenna connected, as you say it worked before. Is wifi working okay for you? (they both use the external antenna - so it might indicate a problem with that).

    Thanks for your quick answer. The truth is that I am using ethernet connection through PLC, since my wifi for streaming was not so good. I have tried to connect the wifi but it does not work either!! So as you tell me it could be an antenna issue. What should I do? Should I downgrade to a pervious version where all went fine?

    Thats what I would do, just to check. But if its a problem with the antenna its probably a hardware issue (bad/broken connection) rather than a software issue.

    Tried different firmware but the problem is still there, so antenna is damaged and I cannot use wifi or bluetooth. Should this be covered by the 2 years of warranty? I bought it only months ago by Amazon and do not remember to hit the device or similar. What do you guys recommend to do? I am a bit upset and dissapointrd with the weakness of this device...

    I have a MINIX Neo X8-H with the latest 003FW installed.

    My situation is:
    Whenever I put the box to sleep and I wake it up again, the Ethernet connection fails to reconnect.
    In order to reconnect it, I have to go to the Settings and turn off and back on again the Ethernet connection of the box to get an IP address and internet connection again.

    I only started to use the Ethernet port with this firmware version (003FW), as only now I have the Powerline (PLC) adaptors to do it, as passing Ethernet cables is impossible for me.
    I have been using Wi-fi (2,4GHz and sometimes 5GHz 802.11n) without any problem, but the signal is not linear, as the router is far away.
    A cable connection is always better!

    I took off the antenna of the box, as I do not need it anymore (except when some application - like Asphalt 8 - obligates me to have a Wi-fi connection) and the box looks more clean and less bulky without the antenna.

    So, is there any solution to this?
    As opposed to me having to do it manually.

    Thank you in advance.

    I installed the latest 003FW via Minix system update OTA and also installed the patch for slow motion issue. But after doing all the problem is still there and every now and then i get the slow motion thing.
    Is there any way to fix this issue permanently?

    This problem also exist with WiFi. And in older firmwares. I have reported this as a bug.

    It depends on your current firmware version.

    You can upgrade using the FOTA service (recommended), on the Settings menu, in the last option, you enter and have a option "Atualização de software".
    Here you can check to see the latest updates available.
    The update will be done automatically.

    Or you can download it here:
    And flash the image through the Amlogic tool.

    If you need any help - especialmente em Português - just say it :)

    Obrigado pela ajuda.
    Eu tenho instalado a versão 9Beta do hardwareguru, instalei e agora o Minix desliga sozinho passadas ums hora. Estou a ver um filme ou mesmo sem nada a fazer e faz reboot sozinha, reinicia sem mais.:(
    Pretendia colocar o firmware original da Minix e fazer assim o ultimo update, para ver se assim fica resolvido o problema.

    If you feel more comfortable speaking in Portuguese, I suggest we take this conversation to PM (Private Message).
    Do you agree?

    Environment: Samsung ue55hu8590 German version connected x8h via hdmi 3 arc port through yamaha receiver using both 4k high speed Internet hdmi cable with full specs for 4k present
    Problem: if I choose any 4k resolution in xbmc menu and power off tv and regardless of sleep mode of minix returns to 1080i (not p) 60 Hz almost every time.
    Another problem on kodi xbmc is that in 4k mode 1080p files only play in exact that size in the upper left corner ... so no full screen. Menu is in full screen though... will there be a new minix kodi version soon?
    What I also noticed in minix xbmc 13.3.3 after standby the link to my movie db seems to be cut and xbmc thinks library is gone. I have to kill xbmc in taskmanager restart xbmc and it works again ...
    Ps. For me there is no freezing stuttering or sound outage at all with this 2014 samsung smart tv

    Have you sort out your issue yet?
    I don't think a firmware update could break the wifi & bluetooth simultaneously.
    I suspect a wrong firmware was being flashed to your unit.

    As reported by yc1437 (#62), hamandi (#63) and swax (#66), I'm having similar stuttering/slowdown issues. I just posted the following in the Framerate Discussion Thread and though I might as well report here as well :)

    Looking forward to trying 004 fw and gen 2 switching!

    I've fully updated my firmware and Minix XMBC to current versions, but the brief testing I did still exhibited stuttering at regular (around 4 min) intervals with 23.976fps WEB-DL (iTunes) episodes when having amlogic hw decoding enabled.
    The playback between the stutters is faultless, and the box shows great promise, so fingers crossed I can turn off the power guzzling PC soon (Aussie power is getting close to 40cents a kWH, and that's on top of a daily service charge!).
    Not sure if it's a setting that iTunes uses that is causing the problem, but I've reverted back to the PC for now.
    Thanks for the continuing development, looking forward to testing the new FW as soon as it lands

    PS I have also tried OpenELEC on the box and it exhibits the same behaviour, so I'm pretty sure it's an amlogic thing.
    Rasberry Pi and PC both playback the same files with no problems and are using the same cable and TV (Panasonic Viera).
