    Free scale (zoom) & aspect ratio in native player

    When playing 4:3 or 21:9 aspect ratio videos with native Player (amplayer) scale mode don't work properly. Video never clipped (crop). It is impossible to zoom more than the width or height of the screen. Video is limited by screen width or height.

    All apps that uses native amlogic Player also can't scale video larger that screen size.

    If using HW+ mode or software mode, scales videos fine, but video quality is not so fine.

    The only app that can make it is Kodi.

    This bug is in all amlogic based TV box!
    Amplayer incorrectly writes the settings in
    /sys/class/video/axis
    /sys/class/video/crop
    /sys/class/video/zoom

    libamplayer.so not able to work with them.
    Maybe there is a possibility to fix it?

    Hello, when i update to the latest firmware I start to experience limited speed over Wi-Fi. My link to the router(Archer c9) is 433 mbit/s. But I cant overpass 59 mbit/s. Before this update my speed was more than 200 mbit/s. Any idea? Thank you in advance! Best regards.

    200Mbits real data throughput over WiFi is impossible on a Minix X8H-Plus.
    The 802.11ac maximum real data throughput on the X8H-Plus is ~90Mbits. (Yes, even using 80MHz bonded channels)
    The connection speed of 433Mbits you mention is correct.
    59Mbits real data throughput is normal in a good environment, so I would suggest you're doing OK and have no problems.(Technically )

    To Summarise the Bugs I've found on 008A
    1. OSD either sticks on or does not appear when fast forwarding or skipping (minix Kodi 15.3)
    2. Video intermittently stutters after fast forward or skip (minix Kodi 15.3)
    3. Unit hangs after wake up from sleep
    4. Youtube playing at 480P only
    5. Unit needs rebooting daily- Kodi becomes sluggish after 24 hours on (memory leak?- could be Kodi and related to 1 and 2)

    Firmware Requests
    1. Please duplicate all wifi commands for remote to IR. If this is not possible please add "M", "P", "T" and "Q" keys to IR functionality

    I'm guessing this is postponed due to the avi issue of the other NEO boxes?

    Check avi playback. A bug was introduced in the latest firmware for the other neos. Hopefully they got it in this one

    Edit. They didn't. The avi bug has been reported.

    I'm having some wifi internet issues

    It will connect to the wifi and internet will work but after some minutes/hours, the wifi stays connected but all internet stops (this doesn't happen on phones, laptops so it's not the router)

    The only way to get the internet back is to either uncheck wifi in the minix settings page, wait a few seconds then turn wifi back on or restart the system..

    the internet connectivity will stop after a few minutes, other times after a few hours.

    I'm running the latest fw8 which i installed using the windows app to do a full clean update.

    i've tried static ip and setting dns servers manually

    When i reflash new firmware via usb burning tool - i need to reset tv box?
    If so how best to reset tv box:
    1. setting - reset?
    2. go to recovery and wipe data & wipe cache?
    3. Two variants (1 & 2) are well?
    PS I want to get a clean firmware.
    Thank you.

    Thanks for reply, but in that case why the F...K I need 5Ghz and AC, I can reach almost the same speed over 2.4Ghz and N standard (+- 5-6Mbits? I don`t agree with you. Something is wrong.

    Just updated to kot49h.20160328 - suddenly, video playback (tested on MX Player and other players, with .mkv and .avi files) is slower. Is this the bug you were talking about? is there a tournaround? WHn will it be fixed?

    Thanks!!
