    Yes Villa, i tried with ES file Explorer, I've just done what Rui was saying, factory reset of U9 and reset of the router...a great idea !!! The NAS is now connected back to the U9 :D Many thanks Rui for the hint ;)

    In FW003 this was fixed:
    2. Enabled the All Apps drawer button of A3 & A2 Lite remotes

    It seems this is no longer working in FW005beta. Is this intended?

    Please tell me at all? During playback of online videos with multichannel sound, U9 outputs pcm 2.0 in the system player in Kodi. In the sound settings set to hdmi passthrough. This is the whole problem nuplayer or is there a way to play multichannel audio? Here's the link for example https://fex.net/#!171693887802 , open via mx player test video with multi-channel sound and check.
    Why 10 bit video is not output to TV with support for 10-bit?? Only in 8 bits. This will be fixed?
    Here's a test to check https://yadi.sk/i/UPFjlWMH3JtDQi

    Hi Ken.
    No, I'm not (using SquareHome). I see this is indeed working on the Minix Launcher when I use this as home.
    I thought this would have been configured at the remote/keyboard mapping level.

    Home, Menu, Volume buttons...etc are standard Android keys.
    However, "All Apps" is defined by us and must be use with our launcher, as it's not a standard Android key.

    Do you mean multichannel PCM audio or Dolby/DTS tracks?
    Multichannel PCM passthrough is not supported by the Amlogic code yet.

    Sorry uploaded a new video, https://fex.net/824013117567 , it has a sound track with DTS. Did AC3 not it is forwarding directly to the receiver? Why then video with AC3 in the internal memory are displayed perfectly in 5.1?

    No problem with AC3/DTS tracks.
    What problem are you having exactly?

    Great news, Ken. Will hdmi spoofing make it to the final release? That and the keyboard enter button fix will complete this device for me!

    Using Beta 005...and Kodi addon (doesn't matter which one). When watching a widescreen movie and I want to adjust to 16x9, I would go to onscreen video icon in lower right hand corner... change viewmode from normal to 16x9...and video would fill the TV screen. This no longer seems to work. I can choose 16x9, but widescreen stays. Only way to adjust video size is to change view mode to custom and adjust zoom to about 1.35. Hopefully I have just missed checking or unchecking a setting somewhere.

    Adjusting the zoom is by no means the way to achieve 16x9 . It pushes the horizontal way out too far while the vertical cannot keep up.

    This seems to only be happening with movies...not TV shows.

    Well, so ends another week and still no firmware. Is it a lot of fixes in it? May announce fixed bugs?

    No HDMI spoofing?! Is there any way to do this on the new release as this is killing me at the moment!

    Edit: Just been reading the beta feedback and the hdmi spoofing feedback was really positive!

    Will this also fix so 10bit videos can play back smoothly?
