    Hi all, I just got my U9-H and I find I often get the following message if I start Netflix and then exit and then return again: "There is a problem playing the video (5.2)" I then have to shut the video down, exit Netflix and restart the box to get the video playing again.

    According to Netflix, I should upgrade the app. Play Store won't allow me to however, saying the app isn't optimised for my device, even if it can be found there - I saw it a couple of days ago and now it isn't there.

    Should I just download the latest apk and install that - I'd be going from 5.0.5 to 6.8-something?

    My firmware is also completely up to date. Any other thoughts would be most welcome.

    Uninstall what ever version you are currently using and try out one of these ! Do a reboot after install and if asked to upgrade to a newer version decline it !

    Unfortunately MINIX are not Google certified devices and that's why you are unable to install certain Apps from the PlayStore:( Netflix being one

    Hi all, just to close off this thread, I downloaded Netflix TV 5.3.1 (build date July 2 2018) and it is working very well.

    Many thanks for your help.
