    FOTA ... Retrying for a trillium times to get this firmware...89%, been hours ... :(

    May I suggest an auto-retry of some kind. That would save us from standing in front of the TV to select RETRY every 2 or 3 minutes or so.

    Please, do something!

    Just got the X6 (2 days ago) but cannot use it because of the SYSTEM UPDATE bad connection. Out of the box, I was expecting hardware HEVC from XBMC but no. Progress ... 90% ... getting there ...

    [update] about 3 hours ago, service seems to be ok ... got 006 update fine, and fast, no retries this time

    Hi Ken, there appears to be some issue on the FOTA side, can you check it out, trying to update a couple boxes (from 003 and 005) but FOTA connection is timing out with little or no progress, happened recently as I was updating a box and it went fine, then the next box FOTA failed constantly after that (around 12 hrs ago), progressively getting worse (slower download) each time I tried (till it eventually times out), till this morning where it doesn't download at all. Maybe a DDoS happening?

    [update] 24hrs later, still no luck I get a few MB of download then it times out and wont continue no matter how many times I choose retry. Internet is working fine, just FOTA wont download.

    [update] 48hrs later, started downloading the recent 006 image from the Minix forum, with windows estimated about 3hrs, noticed the download starting to speed up about 1/2 way through. On completion decided to recheck FOTA and it worked fine, its almost like the weekend is heavily hit with activity.
