    I tested the 004 firmware on my x8-h.
    Tested the following streaming apps (most apps are from holland)
    Working apps:
    Netflix --> no frequency switching but that was known.
    NPO --> frequency switch works correct
    NPO 3FM (live camera)--> frequency switch works correct
    RTL XL --> frequency switch works correct
    Sport 1 --> frequency switch works correct

    App with minor problem:
    SPMC Kodi --> frequency switch works but NOT in TV mode (MiniX XBMC not tested)

    Apps with problems:
    Film 1 --> movie has no sound, freqency switcher works correct
    Kijk --> App works now in full screen and frequncy switcher too, but when you use this app all other streaming apps stop working the cannot load any video any more. Only a reboot helps

    Just tested. Seems ok. But i don't know if it's me or the device, the quality of image of the 003FW was better.

    Will the auto refresh rate switching work with DRM protected online streaming services? I ask this because it didn't seem to work with:
    1) Google Play Movies
    2) Hulu Plus
    3) HBO Go
    4) Showtime Anytime
    5) Starz Play
    6) Vudu Movies & TV <-- Frame rate switching does work. It will switch to 23.976. However, it is only SD streaming.
    7) Flixster
    8) CinemaNow
    9) BTN2Go
    10) TWC TV

    I know for a fact that Vudu, CinemaNow, Flixster all stream 23.976fps content. I am not sure of the others. I did check switching by setting Minix display setting to 1080p 24/50/60Hz.

    Also, beIN Sports MENA still doesn't work.
    (It is working on FW004A)

    Bein sports MeNa doesent work
    Can you confirm Bein Sports MENA doesn't work even with vpn and fw04 ????
    Because minix team told us, they had fixed this issue !
    I can try the last fw for now, but if it true , I'm very disapointed :cry:

    What is TV mode @ SPMC Kodi?

    What is Film 1? A website or an app?
    Haven't hear about this before.

    See it for yourself. It doesn't work for me on X8-H, but works on Nexus 7 2013.

    We did fix it, why?????
    But we could test only free channels.
    Those channels you played on Nexus, do they required login?

    I have contacted a customer to help creating an account, I think this is it...
    thanks for your tips, I've cleared the chat for upcoming bug reports.
    thank you.

    Hi, the paid channels keep saying "This content is not visible in your region"
    What regions do we need to view them exactly? Thanks.
    Free channels are fine by the way.

    It has to be MENA - Middle East & North Africa.

    We're connected to Israel, no?

    I have to check whether it works with Israel VPN. Checked, doesn't work with Private Internet Access - Israel VPN. As I said earlier, I have got this to work only with Smart DNS Proxy.
