    Hi! Previously my SPDIF headphones (Sennheiser rs185) were unusable when output was set to PCM. Now it seems to work both with PCM and SPDIF passthrough.
    Can someone tell me which setting is better and what the differences are for music (i.e no Dolby or AC3 audio tracks)?

    Would it also be possible to have a Simultaneous SPDIF/Analog audio setting?

    It would seem that you are best placed to give feedback, since you asked for the simultaneous spdif/audio jack audio?

    Yes, you're right. The Simultaneous HDMI/Analog audio option seems to work. I was confused by the name.

    Not sure if it's related to this release or not, but I'm getting changing mac addresses using ethernet connection with this firmware. I believe that it was working with the previous release (but I could be mistaken because I changed to ethernet at about the same time as applying the update). Surely I can't be the only one with this issue. I thought it was fixed ages ago.

    If you are using your headphone jack to connect to your hifi, try setting your audio digital output settings to PCM. Your volume controls should work with PCM.

    Same problem with remote enter button here. Very annoying. Please fix it.

    This is a known issue and I am sure it will be fixed very soon!

    I have tested the update by re-flashing 006a then updating again via FOTA.
    The issue definitely has something to do with the 007 update.
    For the time being I have gone back to 006.

    The Dev. team know about it! (y)

    Some ages ago HDMI-CEC worked beautifully with my Samsung LE32B530P7WXXN 1080p television. That feature ceased to work after the first or second firmware upgrade after I purchased the NEO X8-H. I wonder if that luxury will return, or that I have to trash a very good television.....

    Cec is working fine with my x8-h plus and Samsung 40" smart TV (not sure of exact model) I use it all the time for navigation/control in kodi.
    Silly question maybe but is it enabled on both minix and TV?

    Seems a bit extreme to trash a TV because of cec

    I agree. But it is frustrating and disappointing that CEC still isn't fixed. I mean, if it worked before, it can work now, don't it?

    Indeed it can and it does. As I said I use it all the time.

    The big question is why it is not working (anymore) with my television - all other CEC stuff works 'sans problème'..... And - by the way - no Samsung firmware available.

    Please can you clarify which device you have and how you have updated the firmware as you appear to be posting the same issue in two different forums.

    From what I can make out is that you have an "X8-H", so why post in the "X8-H Plus" forum?!

    My mistake! I have a X8-H on a Samsung LE32B530P7WXXN 1080p television. The firmware update is OTA. I posted the same problem quite a while ago - apparently - in another forum, probably the right one....:)
    Nevertheless, the problem is real.

    I thought it could possibly be an incorrect firmware problem.

    Guys, i am unable to fast forward/rewind using the keys on my remote after this update. I have to use the seek bar on the screen to skip ahead on any video.
