    you may use kodi 17 on the u1.
    it works flawlessly : passthrough, refresh etc
    in fact you may use both (minix xbmc and kodi) if you want

    I just installed xbmc minix edition 16.3 on my x8 and cant get the fusion begin here zips to install.
    Could this be because it's an older version?
    Also why is it always necessary to have the latest version of xbmc/kodi?

    It depends your needs.
    I use kodi/xbmc only to watch videos on smb shares so i don't need fancy add-ons, just a few standard ones : a skin, backup,etc.
    in my case , i've put kodi 17 because it solved a problem with old avi's which became unsync .

    i can live with an old version if it fulfil my needs.

    now with exotic repos (not the official one), it may be necessary to have the latest version because the addons dev are not updating, not putting resources to maintain old versions.

    i've also a X8-h and for this one, we have to live with the version 16.3

    That seems to be a bug in the latest Kodi.
    I read some people had success rolling back to an old version, setting up their SMB shares then upgrading

    Yes it seems many people have the prob , must say a little disappointed in minix , for not keeping up .I bought my box well before the new year , so as to be ready for Krypton , thinking the high end manufactures would be on the ball .I have boxes half the price running Kryton without fault .Maybe next time Nividia .

    Thank you for your reply .

    I've not had any issues with Kodi 17, installed from the Play Store, on my U1! :)

    Yes I believe you , seems you are one of the lucky ones , I have tried it forwards backwards upside down inside out , playstore , mirrors , trunks , every APK I have been able to find , it has to be something individual , because like I say , I have lollipop , and I am running , the minix version , the official 16.1 and SPMC versions all on the same box , must be something blocking it .

    Anyway no probs , and glad to hear it works for you , thanks for the reply .

    It is a strange bug, I've had it before on previous revisions.
    Maybe people who don't have it have had their SMB shares aready on then updated??
    It's not a Windows thing as mine is shared from my NAS.

    It's weird because I can go to a file explorer, go to my NAS, select a video and have it open in Kodi and it plays no problem at all.. If I try to create the SMB link to my NAS in Kodi though it just times out.
    I might try a nightly revision

    Yeah mate, nightly releases.

    I should have realised straight away.. I've used older release candidates that have had the same bug before
