    I have an X8 H with latest software. When I am on kodi the sound keeps going off for 1-3 seconds and then comes back as normal. This happens very often and is mostly irritating.
    Can someone please direct me to what the reason could be, maybe some setting I am missing on my minix or on Kodi.
    thanks in advance

    @Villa thanks for your reply. Have been trough that link you indicated. it seems that this is a Minix hardware problem.
    Unfortunately I have 4 of these units and had recommended them to a few friends of mine, most of which have confirmed also having the same problem.
    I think that if this is the case and no immediate solution is coming forward from Minix, this will surely result in not touching any Minix boxes in the future.

    The only way I've solved the issue is flashing custom firmware at http://www.minixforum.com/threads/update-18-okt-2014-x8-h-flashable-zip-for-neo-x8-h.98/

    Download links are

    I won't play with EXTRA Updates/Apps mentioned under the first URL above, in my case the Kodi 15.2 and now Kodi 16 work just fine. The only issue I've noted the Philips Bluetooth headphones not connecting automatically but this not so annoying as the sound drops.
