    Wishes for the previous firmware did not come true. Therefore once again I will express them. The first is to automatically hide the top and bottom notification bars when opening application windows. For example, YouTube and Google Chrom. The second is the ability to scale with the mouse wheel in games and applications, instead of gesturing information and raising two fingers while cassing the screen. For me, as I think many, the acquisition of the gadget is not limited to the purpose of viewing the video. I hope to be heard, thank you.

    When I went to the system update (why are there 2 locations for system update?) it lists one dated 6/13 (or something in June), but not October. So when I try to do an OTA update for the 6/13 update, it downloads then starts unzipping. At around 18% the screen goes blank. Then the green minix start screen appears, followed by the blue logo, then after a few seconds, the green android robot appears lying on it's back with the word ERROR beneath it.

    Any idea what's going on?

    Re-enable passthrough settings in system after every OTA update,
    as all settings will be reset during OTA.

    Can you unplug the power and restart the machine?

    Good to see SAMBA has been fixed so apps like sambadroid allow you to share the sdcard/whatever over the network

    Still not getting the 007a update OTA, I'm on 007. I can do it manually, but I wonder if it's coz VPN is running?

    Yes, I believe a VPN will prevent the OTA update!

    I don't recall a VPN blocking my OTA update , although i have vpn running on my router if that makes a difference

    With the same system passtrough configuration in Kodi 17.5 hd sound is not anymore supported, so I installed minix xbmc 17.3 version in wich hd sound option is supported.
    Simply hd sound support in kodi has gone.

    I did an update but the only one it showed was FW005, sowhere would I find the newest update? Also before Iupdated the system I had loaded up a build that was very nice but now it seemsnothing seems to want to download anymore. I am using 17.5 and not sure if this is the problem. Thanks

    Yeah, did that, but it appears the issue was I had some USB drives attached. Once I unplugged them, the update worked.

    However I now have the update to June 23, 2017. Still no October update showing when I check for updates. Any ideas?

    Edit: Just got the August update. Now I will check updates again and see if the October update shows up.

    Edit#2: OK, the October 20 update now shows. I am downloading as I type this.

    So, OTA updates are incremental and each and every update must be installed, in release order. The system will not show you the latest, unless the previous updates have been installed.

    Good to know.

    Edit#3: Ok, all is good. FW007A installed and working.

    My U9-H just automatically updated to this firmware version without my consent or any option to abort. I just rebooted because the screen went all green and FW007A installed automatically upon bootup.

    How do I disable automatic firmware updates?
