    Since upgrading to v2.20, the spdif works, but i do not receive any 5.1/DTS signal anymore. Before i always got surround sound over spdif, with dropouts every few minutes.
    Now i get a 2.0 signal over spdif, without dropouts. I am using kodi 14.1 (lateste stable release) i don't know if v15 has better results?
    I need spdif since my receiver hasn't got hdmi...

    Hi there, I have been watching this thread with interest - thanks for all the hard work on the upgraded firmware. Do you know when this firmware will become official?

    Spdif passthrough works with dts, not with ac3 5.1 audio. It's the only one thing not working on this great rom. Both passthrough spdif & hdmi are working on Quickshot v2 job rom. This kit kat rom is more stable and much faster.

    Hello all
    I agree this is a great ROM but relating HDMI bitstream to enable DD and DTS Passthrough suddennly the sound stops it's necessary revert to Normal. This issue and the camera issue are, for me, the two main problems at the moment. As far as I know they are addressed in next update.

    Agreed that this is a great rom!
    Can't wait for the update.

    I have a hidden ssid, but everytime I wake the device I have to turn off wifi and turn on again to connect to the hidden network. Is there a solution for this?

    I have just installed this rom and realized it comes with xbmc minix edition, why dosen't it come with kodi?
    can I install kodi?
    if yes do you recommend any specific version of kodi?
    thank you

    Welcome to the community edition :)

    Kodi isn't installed by default because minixbmc is, this is a customized version of kodi 13 tweaked for this rom.

    You can however freely install kodi from the official website. I am currently using the 15.1 alpha which runs fine.

    The official Kodi will be installed alongside the minixbmc so try them both and choose your favorite.

    Good luck!

    After succesfully update I have found that my logitech V470 Cordless Laser Mouse for Bluetooth doesn't work anymore. It's detected as Bluetooth Laser Travel Mouse but can do anything more, and can't be paired.
    Any clue?

    Known issue will be fixed in the next release which should be released OTA shortly.
