    I can confirm that on 002 RC firmware:
    1) NHL, BTN2Go apps are working.
    2) I didn't find any problem with 1080p50 playback.
    3) SPMC, Kodi beta playback problem has been fixed.
    4) Simultaneous HDMI and SPDIF output has returned.
    5) HDMI-CEC is sort of working with my Sony TV.
    6) Refresh rates for 24, 60 Hz are still off, but closer to what are required.
    7) Harmony profile - I am not sure.
    8) Google Play Music, Movies are still broken.
    9) Google Maps problem not fixed.
    10) YouTube stock browser reboot problem also persist.

    Ken has attached the new firmware link that was released to the beta test crew. Maybe you need to read a little better before being rude

    Do i need to add anything?
    - 95% is not 100%
    - how come people think it IS the next one. it was released to our testcrew for testing.. for things that needed testing perhaps?

    So flash it and see it as a "Beta test firmware" or dont flash it and wait for release of the "Release Candidate".

    How hard can reading be?

    note; Anyone ever thought it might be a post that was ment for a private conversation and was posted by exident?


    But anyway.. please stop fighting untill the official is online. it is realy meeningless.

    Friend Scott4646 the answer was not for you was stop the user skyzo2000 .... who made a comment something rude. You are doing a proper monitoring of the post.

    And sorry for the translation and I use google translator and it may seem rude or rough but the answer is not as I wont ....regards

    I think we have a case of 'lost in translation' :)
    "Hide my ass" is the name of the VPN provider, it wasn't a rude comment :ROFLMAO:

    I don't know if it is to much to ask but Since, the MINIX server is very slow and I have been unable to download the full file...

    http://minix.com.hk/firmware/NEO-X8-X8H-002-RC.rar

    Would greatly appreciate if HardwareGuru could upload, to the Forum server that is faster, this firmware?

    Although this is not the Final Firware, that will be available this week with some more corrections and improvements, I would like to test how this Pre-Final Firmware will work on my X8-H unit...

    That's why I requested to HardwareGuru, to upload the file to the forum server, because the Download fails every time I have tried to get it from the MINIX site...

    I hope when MINIX finish Uploading the latest X8-H Firmware this week, they will immediately upload also to the Forum Server, to avoid this Slow Access problem from the MINIX site!

    I forgot to mention in my earlier post that simultaneous HDMI and SPDIF output has returned on 002 RC. I also tested the harmony profiles on my Harmony 900 remote. The profile that worked was X8-H with 11 keys. The X5 profile didn't work for me. In fact, the right direction key on X5 profile gave a blue screen on my Sony TV. I have no idea what that key does or the blue screen is (Input of the TV hadn't changed). The only way I could get back to normal screen was by changing the activity.
