    Turn off the CEC linked power off option of your TV.
    I don't know what's it called for your TV.
    But what you described is in fact correct and not a bug, CEC is designed to work that way,
    the TV tells all connected CEC devices to go sleep together, and this power control is on the TV side. It was wrong if it didn't work before.
    And it would be a bug if your TV is lack of such an option.
    e.g. SONY, LG, Samsung all got this option.

    X8-H Plus -> SETTINGS -> Advanced -> CEC control -> Turn "One key power off" off.

    Hi Ken,

    Yes, these are both the latest versions available to me from the UK Google Play store. I checked for updates this morning before posting.

    We will check again next week, these BBC apps are really badly made and causing lots of troubles to users, not only MINIX's users but users of many other devices. Comments on Play Store reflect the problems.

    Thanks. I understand. iPlayer for Android is a public embarrassment. If you need me to test any new configurations, just let me know.

    Hi Ken,

    I updated the apps by first uninstalling and then sideloading the apk's

    I'm now running

    iPlayer version and
    Media Player version 3.1.6

    Same result, except that I can sometimes get a program to play by manually advancing the play bar and/or repeatedly pausing and restarting. However, this is not consistent, so I would say that on my box, the issue is not fixed.

    well... as we said before, if the app itself is crappy, there is not much we can do.
    anyway, we will try...

    I`m running 003 audiopatch. The new FOTA update is not possible over this firmware, no?

    Just updated to 004 via FOTA and everything went great, no more audio drops on 1080p resolution and the frame rate switching works great.. definitely better than the 003..

    Could we please have also the "update" package with EACH new fw release, flashable through the built in update tool, as it was the case with fw 002...?

    I bought my X8-H Plus a few days ago, it was still on 20141122 firmware. I could update it to v002 thanks to the USB .zip update package available in the "Before proceeding to upgrade to 002 firmware... PLEASE READ THIS!" topic of this forum.

    As for now, my X8-H Plus refuses to see any OTA. I guess it's because I still have to update to v003 before it can actually update to v004 through OTA.

    Our Minix's are mediaboxes, made to be connected to a TV, not a PC.

    Please give us what we need to be able to update 'em without having to unplug 'em, connect 'em to a computer and use a dodgy piece of software (the USB burning tool is far from being a secure one).
    And above all, without having to reinstall everything (the "USB burning tool" way forces a complete wipe, which is *really* a pain in the user's a** ...).

    You did it once, with v002, why did you stop with more recent updates....?

    Thanks in advance.

    Have a nice day !

    Are you trying to update through the settings page on the minix home screen? If so it won't update from there. You need to go to the all apps page and look for the minix update app there. (Not the backup and update app)

    Getting a little stutter every 40 seconds with 24fps
    My standard & NEO A2 remotes are not very responsive after the update.
