    Your quote only strengthens my point.
    Even if the firmware updates so far were just bug fixes and didn't contain the many added features and app improvements, that definition would still be valid.
    Bug fixes are "to make something more modern or suitable for use now by adding new information or changing its design"

    Hello, I'm not sure if the following bug is due to the last firmware version but there is something around hardware acceleration options in kodi/xbmc/spmc that is wrong.

    Unfortunatelly after some days of testing I find a bug playing 1080p mvk files (streaming, local from hdd usb, samba, upnp, torrent, etc). This files stop/frezze/pixel after around 12 minutes of playback and the sound continues. This issue happens just with amcodec off and mediacodec (surface) and mediacodec on. I have tried everything around dinamic refresh rate and sync playback to display with the same results in 1080p files (no issues with 720p files). If I enable amcodec the issue disappears but this codec has color clipping and white clipping, so it's not offers proper picture quality that I expect. I have found this bug with offical kodi (from google play store), xbmc for minix (I tried 15.2 and 16.2) and spmc 16.4.2. No problems with external playes (mx player, 4k player, archos video) appart from color and white clipping.

    Thanks Rui Oliveira! I updated my firmware with the USB flashing tool over a month ago, and it seems to be good now. Since the problem was intermittent I gave it a very long test period, so sorry for my late reply. My box has froze up a few times since (hopefully it was only unrelated XBMC issues), but seems to wake up from sleep mode consistently now.

    Yes, the problem is solved. Rui Oliveira suggested always doing a factory reset after firmware updates, but I took it a step further, and updated the firmware using the "Full system image with USB flashing tool" (from page 1). Whatever method you choose, take your time and be careful. And, as always I recommend backing up your XBMC with the "Backup" add-on before you flash, or factory reset. Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions. Cheers.
