    For me the most important new function in this FW is "Fake WIFI on Ethernet". Perfect! :)

    What is you question exactly?

    Do you mean, "What is the function of fake WiFi?" or is it, "Does this firmware even have that option?"

    Can you please fix turning on from stand by. WHen I don't use minix for 2-3 days when I turn it on - there is no HDMI output, I need to turn it off completely and start again to work,

    I resolve this by switching to another HDMI channel on tv rc, then change back to the previous HDMI channel.

    Then first of all, we need a few days to try out.

    Do you mean, the LED turns blue, but no video output?

    Try clearing cache and data of system update app. Also make sure you have plenty of space in the internal sdcard.

    If you still have issues then use the update.zip method.

    Hello Ken,

    I'm a blind user and noticed that the upgrade uninstalled my Talkback app so I lost the audio description of Android wicht mad it temporarily unusable for me till Talkback was installed from the Playstore. Normally Talkbac is installed by default and was also installed on the X6 after unboxing.

    I know this usergroup is quite small but hopefully the minix dev-team checks this in the future FW-releases. I'm also using a X8 with FW002 and still works stable so now I'm a bit hesistant to upgrade it to FW007 and to bother my g/f if Talkback also deissapears :)

    all by all nice hardware and nice software Ken!

    That is exactly wht I mean. Let's say I power off Minix by pressing power off button on remote (the led turns green). I don't turn TV/Minix on for 2-3 days. When I power on TV and power on Minix by presing power button on the remote - led is blue but there is no signal on the tv. I need to power off minix by long pressing button on the device and then power on again and all works.

    I do experience this symptom when my X6 is at sleep mode for 1-2 days. You do not need to reboot to resolve this issue. If your TV got more than 1 HDMI input, just switch to another HDMI input for it to detect input device for a while, then switch back to the original HDMI input that was connected to your Minix.

    Let us check! No problem!
    By the way, can you or your g/f manually install this app from Google Play Store for the time being?
