    I've not noticed it on my NEO X8-H Plus, so I'll list what my setup is :

    firmware : KOT49H.20170119 release-keys
    No output to USB Audio : ON
    Simultaneous HDMI/Analog audio : OFF
    Digital audio auto-connection : OFF
    Digital audio output : PCM

    HDMI auto-detection : ON (Samsung 720P plasma 60hz)
    Hide status bar : ON
    Self-adaptive refresh rate switching : OFF
    Screen saver : NEVER
    Auto sleep : NEVER

    Google TV remote : OFF
    Samba server : OFF
    CEC Control : all OFF

    Wifi : ON
    Bluetooth is OFF
    Ethernet : OFF

    The only sync setting I use is App Data, all other sync settings are OFF
    Location is OFF
    Automatic date & time is ON network provided

    I use audio through HDMI directly to my TV and the TV is a 720P plasma, all my cables are standard. I also simultaneously run SPDIF to my amp, so that I can listen to SomaFM directly with the TV turned off. I listen to SomaFM for hours and never notice drop outs, however, that's hardly pushing the system.

    Hope that helps sombody.

    It will be coming to the NEO X8-H PLUS as it is an S812 SoC - it will not be coming to the other NEO X8 boxes.

    I checked and everything is the same except:

    I'm using ethernet not wifi.
    My Minix is plugged into a home theatre amp via HDMI

    You don't say how your media is served to the box, we have a hard-drive connected directly to it via USB.

    Hi @Spellbound I have my media served to the box in several different ways, I have a 64GB USB stick and a 32GB SD card directly attached and my phobia of direct connections of hard drives to my streaming boxes is satisfied by a FreeAgent Goflex Home 2TB drive connected to my network, the 2TB drive is a copy of another drive that I have in a safe place in the house, just in case. The NEO X8-H Plus is used more for online streaming than a home media server as I can stream to all my portable devices from my network attached storage, even my "disposable" tablet in the bathroom.

    I just wanted to add that the network and the Goflex and most of the primary devices are protected by a Panamax MAX 5100

    Im having the same issues as above. I thought it was my Receiver which was the problem but upon reading the above its the same issue. Need a fix for this....

    Unfortunately it's very unlikely now as no-one official from Minix has ever posted asking for our input.

    We tried disabling the ethernet connection on the box for the last 2 days but still get audio droputs.

    Looks like we're stuck with it.

    Upgrade to lollipop. Fixed it for me.

    Thank you,

    I will do as soon as the LAN issues are ironed out.

    Well was thinking the same thing. But audio issues were pissing me off more. Since upgrading I haven't had issues with wifi on 5Ghz and no lag etc so I'm happy.

    Hi I can't see that Lollipop is ready yet except for beta version. Is that what you are using?
  18. dirkdiggler

    dirkdiggler Member

    I'm using the RC version.
