    Hello all,

    I have the following problem after update of FW 20150402.

    When I want to play movie is XBMC/Kodi, the signal is lost and TV is searching for picture imput. After about 8 - 10 sec I can see the picture normally.

    Before the update the picture was shown immadiatelly after clicking on "Play".

    How to fix this?

    I have Neo X8-H Plus.

    Same issue on my box after upgrade to FW004 via OTA. I use SMPC 14.2 (Kodi fork). Playing some mkv files signal is lost on the tv. It happen letting the control of the refresh frame rate to Kodi. When MINIX take the control of the refresh frame rate the problem disappear. On version FW003 this did not happen.

    Hi you can try two things:
    -factory reset on your minix and then install just xbmc/kodi and try playing a movie.
    And then test
    -clean everything you have on kodi.
    And then test

    What kodi version do you have ? i use kodi 14.1 stable and not the latest (kodi 14.2 or kodi 15....)

    It's not a bug, it's refresh rate switching active,
    disable it if you don't want to use it.
    But you get smoother, better playback with this feature ON.

    I didn´t have any problems with smoothness by playback before. The picture is the same as before.

    Regarding the Kodi and XBMC, I have both installed and both have the same problem.

    Kodi I have 14.1 and I can change the settings to automatically change the refresh rate.
    XBMC I have 13.3 (not sure) - official Minix edition. If I swich to automatically change the refresh rate, then I can´t play movies at all. It just loose signal and have to restart Minix.

    For me is solution to dowgrade from 004 to 003. How to make it?

    Try turning off the self adaptive refresh rate switching (MINIX settings / display)
    Your TV must be having an issue switching refresh rates.

    I have projector Optoma HD40.

    I didn´t have the problem before I had 003 FW in Minix.

    But we haven't change the HDMI output parameters between 003 and 004...

    It may have a longer reconnect delay when the device switches the refresh rate? (compared to a tv)

    You may check the switch refresh rate option inside XBMC/kodi? you may have it activated in both places generating the problem, you must only use it in one place.
