    Show box after the last update appears to have problems. It has problem on my experia Z1 mobile (lollipop) and my ZTE tablet (jelly bean), it seams that is not a 2.40 malfunction. The previous Show Box version works well.

    The Finnish Broadcasting Company has an app called YLE Areena
    The app lets user to pick native (system) or custom (build in to app) player.
    I'm using the native player mode cause the audio sync is better than in the custom mode.

    HLS 0 works perfectly with on demand material but live streams are randomly picking a wrong aspect ratio.
    Television doesn't change display mode cause all the UI elements stays in correct locations only the video layer is affected. I'm using Minix at 720p mode (best performance for me) but 1080 gives same results.
    Going back and forth from one live stream to another the aspect ratio is picked correctly maybe once of ten tries.

    App's custom player picks the correct aspect ratio every time but it has other issues. Native player has almost spot on audio sync and amazingly stble frame rate.

    Other HLS modes gives other troubles. (Bad audio sync etc etc) so HLS 0 is almost there.

    Could you open little bit the background behind the different HLS modes. Could it be possible to give user configurable HLS mode or are these modes using separate sets of code?

    Add: Minix is connected with eth cable to a 50Mb cable modem.

    CloudTV H/W acceleration is definitely broken with firmware 240 under ALL HLS settings. Only S/W decoding works, but bad judders.

    Filmon tv (any version), live tv ok on "0" but playback on a recording only works on "2",try playing recording on "0"and it just buffers,drop back to live and it buffers, need to restart to clear live tv on "0", try to watchtv on "2" and you get this message (bitstream is conforming to the code std, media framework does not support the feature
    (1:-2147483648). filmon worked fine on the old jellybean software. I support 30+ boxes in portugal, so could do with this snag clearing up.

    TVBOX9B & MKTV isn't working and will crash the apps. Here is the link to the 2 apps


    For your information, I have tried all configuration of the HLS without success. The only rom that works is Neomode Custom Rom Minix X5 mini Android 4.4. However this rom does not support wifi or remote control.

    Hi Gurus,

    This app called LeoTV (Paid IPTV) worked flawlessly on 4.2.2. After I upgraded my Neo x7 mini to 4.4, the stream stopped. None of the HLS configuration worked, tried 0/1/2/3. I can't upload the file or the link since this is my first post, please let me know how do I upload any of them?
