    Hello,

    Does any French guy tested by chance the Orange tv app ? (TV d'Orange by Orange SA)
    - no link, as i can't post any .. -

    On my neo G4 it isn't working at all. If i understood well, it's due to the fact that Orange didn't optimized their app with those uncommon tools ... (i've tried to stream from orange's site, from a browser, but it requires silverlight ....)

    I'm really interested in getting the x8-h for 2 main uses : play the live tv and replay from this orange app, and also stream my NAS content. But if it only works to watch what's on my NAS, i can plug my tablet to the tv (hdmi) as a workaround.

    Maybe on the coming minix Z64 with windows 8.1, it should all work fine !?!?

    I just purchased an X8-H. I am surprised at some of the apps that are not available for it. The following are four of my most used apps. When I select them in the Google Play Store I get the message that they are not compatible with this device. I have the first three loaded on my X7. I have not tried to install OneNote on the X7 yet. Any thoughts?

    To be clear, the following apps cannot be loaded from the Google Play Store because they are not compatible with my device (X8-H).

    Maple Player Classic music player
    PitchLab Guitar Tuner Pro
    Ultimate Guitar Tools
    Microsoft OneNote

    ...ken...

    Hi all
    Has anybody had any luck getting Sportsdevil to run in Minix xbmc

    Hi, that's an xbmc addon you are talking about, not an app. Please have a look around or head to the developper's support place to get your addon up and running. Google will be of help as well.

    Thanks,

    Studying all my apps above and sometimes I installed some.... I found out...that my MX player said that he wasn't the last version but no update was necessary..... Strange.
    I UN-installed the version on my mini X8 and installed again by Google play store and now I had the last version and solved the issue with several other apps saying my mx player needed the latest version of mx player. This little trick solved some issues with my mx player.

    Sims Freeplay works if apk is sideloaded and installed (and I recommend playing with autohiding the statusbar), Google play indicates incompatibility, but it works fine. (WiFi is required, ethernet isn't recognised as a valid connection).

    Tested versions: 5.4.0 and 5.7.0 (latest). (Tested with a flymouse, I don't know if the standard remote works).
    5.4.0 uses a phone-layout, 5.7.0 uses a tablet layout. This isn't related to the minix, but how EA/FM installs the layout data. Same difference happened on my Nexus 7-2013. Music issues (5.7.0 only) are bugs in the game, not related to minix.

    Updates will have to be installed the same way as described above.

    No, I havent tried it. I'm talking about the first 3 Mario Bros. Is there is a addon on xbmc to download the game or emulator, or I have to download it from a website? Thanks.
