    Vidon just came out with a new kodi xbmc release. Maybe that will work better with pioneer, and or maybe after we get minix vidon tweaks...

    Let keep fingers crossed..

    I have the receiver Yamaha RX-A3040, and I think it should also be the Atmos is recognized as digilat Dolby True HD.
    For the 23,976 I have not found any problems, my projector engages 24p and I can not notice the microscatti every 40sec.

    I just hope that it is an alternative to the annual fee, I repeat if it were in a single solution would have done immediately.

    We realize that the Minix releases a firmware that enables the whole, since the potential is there and how.

    With the adaptative switch from Minix team, there is no drop every 40 s, but 5 or 6 (or more) drop during a movie ;)
    In fact, 23.976 is not supported, and I hope it will be soon ;)
    But it's not a problem to watch a movie of course, for me, minix is the best for now to play 23.976 movie (for a player which does not support 23.976 with android of course :) )

    Have you upgraded the firmware on your RX-A3040. Dolby Atmos is supported only on firmware 1.66.

    23.976 is supported on the X8- series for quite some time now. I don't have the X8-H Plus. So, I have no idea what the exact refresh rate is.

    Firmware upgrade will be required to add the support, via FOTA.
    We hope to release it within a month, still under development and testing right now.

    I'll try to install tonight. Maybe file is curupt?


    UPDATE:
    just tried to install it..
    It works!! ☺

    So looks like your download is bad, or maybe you have kodi already installed?
    If so, uninstall your version, then re-install the vidon version.

    UPDATE #2

    just played with vidon kobi xbmc, and had one heck of a time getting HD audio to work on any file. I think I only got one file to work. Lol.

    Anyway, until the next update from minix (if they tweak the HD audio with vidon) I recommend only using vidon xbmc v. 2 and NOT kobi version.

    Version 2 xbmc worked almost for every HD audio video file. Seems more solid..

    I still notice the 23.976 issue now and then, but my TV (Samsung ES6800) compensates the most of it... :) hoping for a good fix though

    I tested the last Vid0n XBMC (kodi), I have no sound when I play movie with DTS HD master sound, and I have stability problem too, 2-3 times, go back to minix main screen menu during xbmc menu navigation before playing a movie :(

    Somebody sent an email to Amlogic complaining our hubs don't support 3D-ISO playback.

    1.) We have never claim our hubs support 3D-ISO playback, since we don't see it being listed in the chipset specifications;
    2.) We are trying to make it work on Amlogic platforms (i.e. NEO X6, NEO X8 series);
    3.) To achieve that Amlogic has to make it working first;
    4.) Then it has to pass our tests and proven to be stable enough before we could release the update to add the support;

    It's quite sad because we've been working hard to add a nice good feature for you guys...

    You should post this on Vidon's forum.

    Well... there is at least one VidOn staff member who encourages users to send email to every one on the Earth so that, I quote: "it may help light a fire under their butts!" What can I say? It is VidOn!!!!!

    I for one am glad that you are indeed trying to add new features and care about your customers. ☺

    It will be worth the wait, and awesome to have features that weren't official listed..

    You guys rock☺

    And thanks again...
