    Release of X7 KitKat Version 250 - February 8th 2016

    **** Thread closed ****

    Hello Guys,

    We need beta testers for 250 beta.
    This will not be publicly released and will be managed from within a beta test crew with selected people.
    Please have a look at what needs to be tested below and if you want to join please let us know what you can test.

    We are looking for feedback, not for one time downloaders that want only the latest firmware.
    For this reason your forum activity will be looked at before you can join.

    What needs to be tested;
    1. Optical audio drops ( Big files 25+GB with DTS/Dolby )
    2. Audio MIC jack
    3. Apps that wont play video on 240

    Please let us know if you are interested to be part of the beta testing.
    Please provide enough info on hardware, apps, features you want to test.

    Hello HardWareGuru,

    Count me in!

    I'm experiencing Optical Audio (Toslink) drops in my Neo-X7-Kitkat-240 / Yamaha XRV1500 setup whilst playing different kinds of movies (DTS/Dolby Surround).
    These drops occur with diffrent kinds of file-sizes (among "Lord of the Rings III - The Return of the King (2003).mkv" - 28,1 GB ( bytes) )

    I'd really like to have that solved so I offer to cary some weight ;)

    Groet'n uut...

    I have problems with crashes and restarts the 240 version.
    In this updated version was something more than the 240 version ?, ie, is an update in depth ?.
    If so, would be interested in trying it, test it.
    Thanks and regards.

    Will you have the IPv6 stack running again in 250? It has always been present, but for some reason it was omitted in 240.

    1)I'd like to try your new rom because on 240 I was not able to use the microphone.

    2)Do you think that I can install your new rom on a tronsmart t428? The only difference is the internal flash. T428 has only 8gb

    Crosspost from 240 announce thread.

    Count me in, I have an AC3/DTS capable receiver, X7 mini, no problem wiping it as often as it is required and experience the SPDIF dropouts with 5.1 audio output.

    I would like to test te beta FW. I've been experiencing many problems with Kodi and now with xbmc, which happened after last FW upgrade. I also own an X5mini and an X6 that run perfectly.

    Please let me know if I am elegible.

    Thank you.
