    Please also fix support for UPZ/Ziggo Horizon Go app.
    It appears to launch but when taken to the list of channels the app just disappears, it essentially crashes to desktop. Might be something Liberty Global did or did not do but the app does work on any of my mobile devices.

    Yes, it has been fixed.
    We shall release the next firmware the coming week, thanks!

    Sorry about the delay, again!

    Some apps don't contain the "x86 processor" library and thus couldn't run/launch on Z64A.

    It's not something that we could fix... please understand.

    For apps with both x86 & ARM processor library, they should work just fine.

    If not too late, one more suggestion for a fix with the new firmware.:

    Now, if you have an air mouse pointer turned on and you select "sleep", Minix will turn on when you move the mouse (e.g. To put it away). Can sleep deactivate mouse?

    Understood. I feared it would be something the app developer would have to do and seeing that it isn't a company that is prone to listen to it's customers it'll never be compatible... Oh well. At least NPO knows how it is done.

    So, is the August 2015 and then September 2015 firmware for the z64 out?
    when can we upgrade?
    will it be available for the automatic update also?

    Personally I would rather they take the extra time to perfect the update before releasing it, than to release a wonky update filled with performance bugs. Good things take time!

    I've installed the Kodi that can be found on the Google Play Store and it seems to work just fine. Is there any performance gain or stability if i install the 'Z64 Special' Kodi instead?

    An integrated samba server solution so to avoid rooting the device.

    A better support for mount/unmount external Hds...

    I get this notification at startup and I have to wait several minutes for the process to finish...
    "preparing removable storage
    checking for errors"

    I' expectations started another thread about this problem.

    Just wanted to let everyone know, the latest Sling TV update now works on Minix devices. I've tested on my Z64A, X8-H Plus, and X6.

    Hope it comes with the updated launcher, the one with the updated Kodi logo :)
    Also, the bug fixes for the A2 Lite remote and the weather info near the launchers clock.
