    To those of you having problems with downloading from Minix server, please use a download manager in Windows, at least for me it never fails to download the firmware files.
    For example this http://www.internetdownloadmanager.com/

    Testing result from system monitor software decode Hi10p by XBMC
    Hotplug realy activate all 4 cores sometimes but system monitor show that XBMC only use around 48% of CPU
    Interactive XBMC use up to 82% of CPU and perform much better
    Max frequency of CPU of these governors seem to mostly struck at 1.6ghz even when it need more power

    So, you think that would be better to change the CPU to Interactive Mode, because XBMC used up to 82% of CPU and also works much better?

    I already asked HardwareGuru, and he recommended to leave all CPU at the original Minix default values...

    Since the X8-H Quat-Core Processor is rated at about 1.9ghz, I really not understand why MINIX used only up to 1.6ghz... May be to avoid overheat?

    I only just give the information the rest is up to Minix team to decide what to do with it, sometimes user point of view also help.

    I testet the Logitech Harmony with the RC firmware. Works nice. The X5 profile doesn't work. The only keys that would be nice to work would be the pause/play and stop keys.

    Thanks at minix team for the support.

    That is unfortunate. Without Pause and Play there was no reason to add anything as that was working out of box without those buttons.

    @Darren:
    with the beta firmware my harmony 700 doesn't work. Not with the x5 profile and not with the x8 profile.
    Now with the RC Version it works. OK, not very comfortable but it works. I hope for more keys in the future.

    @minix team:
    is it planed in the future to support more keys of the logitech harmony remote like pause/play and stop key?

    Thanks,

    For me, it already worked with beta2 as well as beta 1. What we asked to MINIX is to effectively add at least Play/Pause & STOP key. (fast forward/backward & step backward/forward could be a good option as well)
    If these extra keys are not supported, there is no real improovment in Harmony support.

    Note : X5 IR is not complient with the X8. It is possible to change the profifile having root access to X8, but anyway the ON/OFF button must managed separately and learned manually. There are some hacks to make it to work, but not very simple.

    Could we have more informations on following point ?
    4.) Adding Logitech Harmony profile (we don't have this remote to verify, please check and feedback to us);

    Is there a new profile to download for Harmony? Is that a new X8H or do we have to use another one like X5?
    Is there new support fore more buttons? Which ones?
