    Can you address this question? Thanks. I posted the original post below.

    "New Kodi is assuming you don't change the system volume when using passthrough,
    it assumes you to alter the volume via the AVR.

    We shall lock the ability to adjust system volume while passthrough mode is in use @ firmware 007,
    it's a better approach to avoid confusion."

    Can this please be an option???? I couldn't figure out what was going on last night after upgrading both of my devices to 007. If I use my sound system volume controls it actually causes the midix to skip forward in Kodi 10 minutes. I've tried to find a way to disable the infrared on the minix but didn't see anything besides some more difficult ways. Instead I use the volume controls on the remote for the minix Android which works fine and is much less confusion for the kids. I'll have to try to flash back to 006 for now.

    1. Top/bottom 3D image: I think this issue is not related to minix platform, Vidon developers saying that they support frame packed playback (picture comes to TV as two full HD images top/bottom plus 45 pixels between them 1920x2205px in total), but picture comes as top/bottom 3D squeezed image 1920x1080px.

    2. Problem with 3D image: prometheus movie: start titles and movie name: i cant focus on lettes, words are not readable and displaying with oreol. The book of life cartoon, to compare with power dvd: perspective and deth of fileld are different. All movies are playing with not impressive 3D.

    3. In general why you cant develop your own solution like HiMedia or IconBit do. They have their own players for proper BD3D support.

    Hello, it seems that since this update, I can't anymore adjust the volume with the minix remote control nor from another logitech keyboard using the vlume keys. A message appears on the creen indicating "please adjust the volume via your avr". It only works by going into the settings/sound/volume menu. Mute/Unmute still works. It is not convenient to lose this possibility to use the minix remote to adjust volume. Hope you can fix this soon.
    All the best to the team for the great work.

    Well, the "Fake Wifi" is the only thing that is working in this update. I was using an Internet Speed program that is now finally reporting the amount of data used.

    3.) Fixed YouTube livestream unable to play issue. NOT!!!!! The Youtube app is trying for a while and then even closing the app. So it is even worse then in 006A version, because there it was just not working, now app is crashing.

    If using Google Drive, Google+ and/or Google Photo, all video's are not played in 1080P resolution. It looks just SD quality. I already did report this problem for the 006A version. Please fix this in the next version. OneDrive is OK in displaying the same video in 1080P.

    3D in KODI and VIDON is still not working. Only option to make it to work is disabling the first HARDWARE ACCELERATION in the list. But then 4K video is not working anymore. Was already reported for 006A.

    And I still haven't found the right startup sequence for VIDON to get the DTS HDMA working. If you get it to work, it keeps working till the next reboot. Conclusion: It is possible to get DTS HDMA 7.1 audio out of the Minix, but it would be nice if it was always working.

    hello all,

    i have a problem with my x8h+ since ever. ive tried everything but the problem remains.
    i went through all updates. i rooted the box. i tried a custom rom. now i went back to stock and just updated to 007. still the problem is there.

    my setup:
    tvheadend as remote pvr backend (using a satip-server as signal-source)
    nas to store recordings
    a number of devices running android with xbmc/kodi as frontends - one of them is my x8h+

    my problem:
    when zapping through channels it happens quiet often (every 5th channel or so) that i see the picture for just a second before the screen turns black while audio goes on.
    all other clients work fine. really zero problems. just different hardware. same software-setup: kodi 15. for that reason i am sure its a x8h+ specific issue.

    i would be glad to get any help on this

    I can't select "My apps" anymore using a keyboard or any other device on the Google Play Store so that I can check if there are any app updates. Also you can't select any of the other options such as "My wishlist" or "My account" either.

    You should control your volume via your AVR if you're using HDMI/SPDIF passthrough,
    this is the correct approach. We are following what Kodi advised us to do.

    We shall look into the YouTube livestream issue again.
    Google Drive/Google+/Google Photo, is that our isue?
    3D works with Vidon XBMC, it's their major selling feature. I don't think official Kodi support it. That's why we are trying to help them improving the compatibility on our platform.
    DTS-HDMA - Our products do not support it.

    Playstore is working fine by me.

    And Google Drive/Google+/Google Photo, is that our issue?" yes it's your issue. Because on my Samsung S4 and Tab Pro it is working fine in 180P resolution. So it looks like that Google is thinking that the Minix is a low resolution box. Maybe it's time to talk with Google to support the Minix box in high resolution.

    And maybe the 3D itself is working, but playing a 3D movie in 2D is still NOT working. And same story for your original XMBC fork and the VIDON version. There a a lot of people that don't like 3D movies. Just be able to play them in 2D would be fine. But now you always have to unselect the Accelaration.

    Connection via Lan Еthernet (Ethernet-On).
    Wi-Fi off. "Fake Wifi" off.
    When exiting sleep mode is automatically (by itself) enabled Wi-Fi.
