    Does your TV have a 24p mode?

    Yes

    OK.
    I don't have the X8-H Plus. So, I have no idea what the exact output refresh rate in 24p mode is. If it is 23.997 as mentioned on AVForums, there is the possibility of stutter every 47.6s. @jdpug reports stutter every 250s, that would suggest that the output refresh rate is 23.980Hz. On the X8-H, it is 23.975Hz.

    Hi wek05
    Yes, you're right. When I looked at the fps output it starts @ 23.980 then starts to vary from 19.68 to 25.00fps.
    Thanks for your help

    fps =/= refresh rate. What you see in Kodi is just the rendered fps. It doesn't tell you what the actual output refresh rate is. To find that out you will have to use a test instrument or an external video processor that can provide report on the input signal.

    Ok, thanks
    Ken said the 40sec stutter bug was fixed a few firmewares back, but the issues is still there. I hope minix reopens the issue. I fined the stutter very annoying.

    Had to replace

    with the one from 002 FW, to get it working again.

    Hi, I don't have the 40sec stutter issue, but I have 10 drop (average) when I play a movie (23.976).
    It means there is something which is not 100% done with 23.976 compatibility ;)
    Friends of mine with Minix 8H have the same problem ;)
    I have the Minix 8H PLUS.

    I have been using Kodi (rather than Minix XBMC) on my Minix Neo X8-H Plus from the get-go. [Now using v14.2.] Since updating the firmware to 004, I've experienced some of the same problems reported here. Am I correct in my understanding that using Minix XBMC 13.3.3.final might improve that? Is it Helix-compatible? That is, skins and builds* developed for Kodi Helix should work on Minix XBMC 13.3.3.final?

    * FYI: I'm in love with a Total Revolution Community Build called "Andys Build" (v4.1), currently compatible with Kodi v14.2 on android devices (including the Minix Neo X8-H Plus, at least with 003 firmware). Check out the "Andys Build 4.0" YouTube demo video, if you're curious. [Ignore that video's obnoxious sound track; it's not part of the build itself.]​

    I'm having an issue with no virtual
    keyboard appearing in all apps. Had the same problem after using ota. Did a clean install of fw004 and problem didn't occur until today.

    OK ;)
    I hope to see a 23.976 patch soon ;)
    It's not too bad to have just few drop when you see a movie, but it will be perfect without that :)

    Hi Ken,
    Enabling auto frame frame switching does fix the issue.

    Sure, choose auto frame switch on minix setup is necessary ;), but 23.976 support is not 100%, to compare, I used the raspberry PI2 with openelec/kodi to play a movie I looked with minix before, and it was without any drop ;)
    I'm confident, Minix team is going to find the solution soon ;)

    I'm not to sure because ken said it was sorted a few firmwares back. I fined stutter/frame drops very annoying when watching movies.
    Ken can you please confirm the stutter/frame drops bug has been reopened.
  17. costaud

    one thing I am certain is that no android player at this time is 100% 23.976 compatible.
    But with the minix, we are so close ;)

    There's a bug that I've noticed after upgrading to fw004 but it happens somewhat rarely so I can't be 100% sure it didn't exist in previous firmwares:

    It appears when turning my x8h-plus on, after its been fully shut-down. It boots and then it shows an error message: "failed to query inventory" (see attached image).

    I can dismiss the message and then get on with whatever I want to do, it doesn't seem to affect performance, there are no more problems and it doesn't appear again until (occasionally) after a reboot

    Does anyone else have this issue?
