    I recently upgraded to the latest stock firmware 007 after having my MINIX X8 for a year or more with no issues.

    I upgraded at the time as I bought a new Sony 4k TV and also a HDMI Matrix Switcher, I was keeping my original old Samsung dvd player/amp

    Soon after I noticed that everything I watched locally or streaming had random drops in sound.

    Morale of the story I should've known working in I.T don't make too many changes at once

    So I set about troubleshooting this,

    settings in XBMC - dead end and proved in it happened in Spotify
    audio settings in MINIX passthrough SPDIF, HDMI
    audio settings on tv as I thought it was the ARC causing problems
    tried removing the HDMI Matrix Switcher from the setup

    after searching this forum I found a thread regarding a patch for fixing ARC and random audio drop outs.. I was going to try this but then came across the BETA 9 edition

    Installed last night but so far no audio drop outs
