    You're right, H/W playback of network files with MX Player on 002 beta 8 is buggy. I get a lot of artifacts just playing small 480p XviD anime videos making them unwatchable o_O S/W decoding removes the artifacts.

    Unfortunately MX player is no longer the great app that it used to be. Having to enable a third party software decoder for sound is another set back.
    I have given up on is for now and use BSBplayer - but to be honest (imho) nothing works better than XBMC.

    Sounds like file corruption. Try downloading it again.

    Could you use WinRAR instead WinZIP???

    Dont use old WinRAR versions to extract..... Use the newest (the latest)

    Yeah I'll give it a go with WinRAR also there's another link available to download the file so I'll try that to. Thanks for the reply.

    I think that link is the same file... only another way to reach it.
    Anyway: Like they said: Use a recent 7zip or Winrar to unrar.

    Yeah I thought as much pal jus thought it might be worth a try to see. Hopefully a change of program will do the trick cos my A2 remote is useless till I get this beta on it. Thanks for your help.

    We bought TV box to work it almost 5 months in beta!? What time is need to put one final and good firmware (for our spent money,
    we deserve it).
    Something is not OK, and they didn't respect buyers.
    Just see this part of forum, it is stuck on 16 page more then a weeks. This tells as more than anything.

    It's been mentioned several times that the 'Beta Testing' group is currently testing Beta 9.

    They are in fact testing the 3rd version of Beta 9 - so it's safe to assume that much progress has been made.

    We can confirm that the feedback thus far has been positive, and there is a vast improvement from Beta 8.

    But please be a little bit more patient, we believe the majority would prefer us to release something that's 100% ready - rather than 80-90%.

    Can you improve the HDMI spoofing in Beta 9.
    Because App like ''Bein sports'' doesn't work on my minix but work's great on my SG2.
    Thank you for your effort.

    What did you espect? Snap your fingers and there is the solution?
    Give me a break, some things need a bit time to been solved. If you can't wait that long buy another divice. Then you will notice that the support (as far as there is) fails like hell.

    People are complaining and complaining (not all) about the timeframe between adjustments in the software and the releases, If you need it that hard then perheps your choice for an android system hasn't been the right one or you. With in mind that you didn't paid lots of money so you get what you paid for. In my opinion the most complainers use this divice mostly for watching free movies and so on...( including myself) so be real, have a bit understanding and patient..... at the end things will be oke
