    Hi Ken,

    Same scenario with Philips TV,
    I'm using FW008 and still have to turn off - turn on force RGB every time I turn on / restart my U1 in order to work properly.

    Good evening.
    I am a new Italian user Minix Neo U1 .
    I was a happy Minix Neo x7 user.
    U1 is nice but I have green and pink flash on TV screen.
    I have a TV ( PHILIPS ) and I have set " Force RGB output " but without success.

    I'm sorry for my english

    thank

    Hi,
    I was using FW006 for few months and the the force RGB worked quite (even sometimes screen becomes black for a second)
    since I have updated to FW008, seems like this Force RGB option always switchs off after restart of the minix.
    Can you check and correct that in the future update?
    Thanks

    You are running the 008 firmware?

    Minix, wake up, I have the same problem. Philips TV PFL7404H, Minix U1 FW008. I have to set Force RGB output even though it is already set in order to solve the problem and after couple of minutes the problem is coming again.
    This problem is not solved yet !

    We are just trying to help you guys, this is a design flaw of the TV,
    we can't guarantee that it could be 100% working.
    Philips could fix the problem I guess, but I doubt if they would ever release an update for something that old.

    X7 is having a lower hdmi version. The problem of these TVs are with newer hdmi version, which matches your comment.

    If the problem lies with the TV then another mediaplayer may well be just the same?!
    You could really do with finding someone with a different device and trying it with your TV before you splash out on another device!

    I tried this already with 2 other mediaplayers and no problem at all it is only the Minix Neo U1 that does not work correct

    the fix is simple you need to enable force RGB out in the display setting optin this will fix the problem i had the same issue with my sony lcd and this fixed it.

    The problem is the S905 AMlogic chip that is in the Minix Neo U1 is what I found out,to force RGB by an older Philips TV the problem is not fixed.
    With the older version Minix Neo X8-H Plus there is no problem at all.

    I'm so happy to asked to Minix. They said, return your Minix U1 and get a Minix Neo X8-H Plus.

    I did it, and really happy with my X8 Plus.

    Hope Minix solve in future this problem because Philips sure not.

    Change it for Minix Neo X8-H +. Had the same problem and was the answer for minix technical support.
    With X8-H or X8-H + my Philips 37PFL works ferfectly.

    I tried a lot of things. And minix was clear. Philips Will not solve the problem. Then change it and enjoy.
