    Hi Guru,
    where can I get the minix launcer?

    btw when I update this one
    NEO_X7_20140430_010_OTA.zip

    my home screen cannot turn on if I choose the minix launcher (sometimes will see blinking)

    after than I update with
    NEO-X7-010_1080.zip
    I am unable to choose the minix launcher (green color box), but can still use back like phone launcher, it work fine for me but I did not see the different from default firrmware

    am I update sequence correctly?

    You need to download the latest firmware and flash your X7 using a PC with Windows 7 or earlier version of Windows.

    Download link (to be used for a Fresh install or pre CE210 versions)

    Thx, i did install the firmware from your link but i cant get the audio output to work with my dolby suround system. Not with HDMI or spdif passthrough. Do i need to install the p1080 patch? And how do i update it with a wire (update.zip still dont work)? Also the restore buton and searh for the patch?

    What do you mean, "update it with a wire" ? You said you have installed the firmware!

    I did install the firmware that was included with the downloadlink. I dont get the sound working with my dolby suround set.

    question 2: how do i update to the 1080P version.If i rename it to updat.zip and put it on the x7 it till says its incorrect.

    You shouldn't need the 1080p patch! It is now integrated with firmware 250.

    Ok. You got any clue how to fix my sound problem? It seems the Passthrough aint working.
    I tried HDMI Bitstream and Spdif Passthrough but both don't work.

    Unfortunatly it doesnt change the fact that the sound of the whole x7 doesnt work. Its not only xbmc/kodi but also the standard sound when i flip around the menu on x7.
    Is it correct i only can choose HDMI Bitstream and SPdif Passthrough audio output? before the firmware update i had more option.

    What "more options" are you looking for?

    Thx, that are the options i can select. Atleast i know i got te right one.
    Neither the option spdif passthrough or HDMI Bitstream give sound.
    So i still got the problem

    ...and what about Default Output?
    A stupid question, do you have the volume turned up?
  16. SwbOnline

    SwbOnline New Member

    Volume is turned on if i put the x7 direct in the tv I can hear sound on HDMI and default from tv. Spdif no sound, even if the wire is connected.

    If I put the HDMI in the dolby surround, all sounds is gone. I tested the HDMI port with the PlayStation.. PlayStation give sound on the same HDMI port.

    Maybe a stupid question, but doest the installation of the FW from Villa's link include Kit Kat 250 from the other topic?
