    Please upload the apk to us, we will debug it.

    P.S. did it work before the update?

    Hi Ken

    I upgraded to firmware 004 this weekend and i am still having the same problem with the HBO app.
    Any news regarding this?

    Do you need the 2nd of april apk or any other assistance?

    Have been using my Apple TV and HBO through Airplay the last few weeks.
    I really love my Minix X8-H and would like to be able to use that as a one stop shop for all my viewing.

    I have also very bad user experience using HBO Nordic on Minix X8-H.
    HD quality video is lagging a lot. Pausing trick did not help. It's not bandwidth issue.
    My Minix is updated to the latest version via FOTA. Also HBO Nordic app is the latest available version.

    There is someting about the Minix Hbo Nordic dont like.
    Ive mailed them earlier this week. And they didnt recognize any particular problems with the Android platform and thats true it works perfect on my old Galaxy tab 3.
    Ive got an old computer for the moment an AMD and its laggs ass hell playing it in the browser and they told me to change the settings for flashplayer turn off hardware acceleraton and give it maximum buffer but that didnt do much.
    Ive also asked them if they have any plans of going ovet to HTML 5 and they said that the develop team is considering it.
    So i guess there isnt much to execpt wait,.. Works perfect on Google chrome and i guess the Minix has a lot more juice than that.

    it sucks totally... with ethernet hd is stuttering alot, like pause between frames and skipping alot of them. then after 10 seconds the quality changes and the quality isnt any better than sd. sometimes it seems to work better via wifi but sometimes the quality changes to sd too. sometimes it keeps the hd quality (720p) longer. if you can play the hd quality, dont pause the movie. because when you continue to watch it later, the quality is dropped down.

    so what is the problem with x8h and hbo nordic?

    I do also have this problem using the newest update from fota and a clean install of the newest version of the hbo nordic app. I verified that my setup is HDCP compliant.
    The app haven't worked for me ever since i installed it on my minix (around aug. 2014)

    I contacted HBO nordic support yesterday and the tech guy told me that they are aware of this problem and he'd forward the problem to their tech department. He promised me an answer on their progress tomorrow.

    Called HBO Nordic again, and the guy on the phone didn't have any news for me, but he promised to push it to the tech-department and even said he'd try to contact minix.
