    But minix has really telled you that there are no way to solve it? Neither in future update of minix?
    So why this thread have the tag "SOLVED" on it?

    Telled me, at this moment no, in future don't know. But minix not need to solve the problem. Philips Will do it. Change it for Minix X8-H + with Best remote ever and enjoy. No problems with Philips 37pfl, Samsung and LG tvs

    For me is not simple, i am in italy and i bought it throw amazon. Surely will be difficult and long to change it. And before doing it i want to be sure that this is the only way.
    Perhaps now i'm reading in page 4 an user saing that with a 1,4 high speed hdmi cable problem solved...should it possible?
    Another things..i checked on philips website and i found a firmware-software update of 2010 of my television model: may this solve?

    I'm Spanish and bought 3 of them in Amazon. Best way to buy it. Explain the problem, returned to Amazon and they turn me my money and bought the X8-H plus.
    Tried with 4 different HDMI cables and with Last Philips firmware.

    See you, and good luck

    Ok but i repeat to you that reading this thread seems like solution should be.
    1) Cable 1,4?
    2) Philips firmware update?

    Also now i am reading about a user that say that forced RGB works if you switch off and then on every time you turn on minix neo u1..

    P.s. I checked my version. If i go in firmware update i read: "LMY47V.20160816 release-keys"
    If i go to information in the advanced settings i read "build number: U1 FW009A 20160816"
    Am I at latest version?

    Yes, 009A is the latest fw...

    BTW: If you order at amazon then you should, if you order via marketplace (other shops than amazon), only use shops where amazon handles the fulfillment to get full amazon support..

    I checked in my amazon order and I see that i can send back it until 4 November. I am just checking with minix support if I can do something considering that in this thread there is tag "SOLVED".

    You are right, solved for thread-starter and for most but not for all (blame phillips which seems to doesn't like standards)...
    As @mapakitus already mentioned replace it with a Minix Neo X8-H Plus...

    EDIT: or time to buy a new TV :)

    I solved putting the minix to sleep and switch on to remote control.
    If I turn off the Minix when I turn on imposed "force rgb output" first off and then on.

    Hey KEN, problem again, after installing the latest firmware update the RGB forced doesn't work anymore. The Philips tv turns green and purple, even if for few seconds it's pretty annoying. Can you fix it? Or can someone tell me how can I downgrade my NEO U1 to the previous firmware? Thanks.
    Has anyone the same problem after installing the latest available update?

    Thanks for answering, how do I reflash to downgrade to the previous version? There's any guide over here in the forum? A link?
    Thank you.
