    To me this is a workaround. Problem is now you aren't letting your sound system handle the digital sound feed like before. I think they need to make it an option for people that do use the volume controls.

    This is true - the set up I have is a Sony Bravia with a sound stage connected to my TV through the HDMI and then my minix box connected to the TV however would like to have the sound stage connected to the minix but to sort the volume control had to tweak - lets hope they can add an option in a future update - still a great box and still great support with the updates we get.

    I did update and did try the fake wifi on the horizon go app. Unfortunately it is still not working with ethernet+fake wifi, but only with wifi. Even after uninstall/install the app. Anyone horizon go app working via ethernet+fake wifi?

    @Wush14 did you also get horizon go app from upc working on ethernet+fake wifi? If I start for example npo1 I get an error message saying 'no connection - we are unable to connect to the server. Please check your connection settings. With wifi connection the app is working okay.

    Thanks. So we can conclude that fake wifi is not working for this app.

    Confirmation. Fake WiFi doesn't work with HorizonGo and HBO Go (in Poland at least).
    Hoping for solution.

    Please do note that Ethernet disguising as WiFi can't work 100%.
    It is just a feature trying to increase Ethernet's compatibility to some apps.
    It can't cheat every app, let's have a mutual understanding first.

    I guess Frederick_99 is referring to point 2 in the perquisites for the fota update.
    Fota updates don't remove data/apps but being rooted can cause issues.

    That's great. Just be aware that Minix doesn't recommend rooting, it invalidates your warranty and future ota updates may not work.
    That been said, its your box to do with as you wish
