    Dear all NEO X8-H PLUS users,
    (This beta firmware is NOT for X8, X8 PLUS or X8-H)

    We're releasing this beta2 006 firmware for those having the below issues/needs and are willing to try out new things. :)

    Please note that beta firmware users will not receive future FOTA updates.

    1.) This beta firmware fixed the HDMI-CEC issues of Panasonic TVs, and adding back the Samsung "disconnecting Anynet+ device" procedure when the box goes to SLEEP;

    2.) This beta firmware has a relaxed timing for Infrared repeat commands;

    3.) This beta firmware added the SMB server function;

    4.) Added auto-sleep option in SETTINGS (15/30/60mins);

    5.) Added CEC-wake up support for Panasonic TV during early suspend stage;

    6.) Fixed WEB-DL files may have stuttering after seek bug;

    7.) Fixed WiFi/BT wake up connection bug;

    8.) Modified remote.conf for IR remote controllers;

    As all the above listed things are new, that's why we need to release this beta and hoping to collect feedback from you guys.

    Apps compatibility is not improved in this beta, comparing with official 005 firmware, so you may skip testing this beta if you're having some app compatibility issues with 005 firmware;

    For those who are interested to try out, we sincerely hope that you can help us by doing the following things:
    1.) Report any problems found in a gentle, peaceful manner;
    2.) Do not complain, if you were going to complain, we kindly advise you not to try, please;
    3.) Do not start fire of any kinds in this thread;

    Because Logitech has our product profiles already,
    we don't have to do it by ourselves.
    Our timing settings are different from theirs.
    Stick to theirs should be a better choice, as it is official.
    Don't misunderstand my words.

    Refresh rate switching works now @ 3D, Vidon gave us a new apk.
    But it has one minor bug to fix to become perfect.

    Some of the games are not working with the original xbox 360 controller (for pc), for instance GTA3., Star Wars K.O.T.O.R., Oddworld, you end up in a continuous camera spin. The camera spinning will slow while i push the left/right trigger. Other buttons works good. In Dead Trigger 2 the left/right trigger causes continuous shot. Is there any way to fix it?

    Very interesting ;)
    I hope Orange TV app and MyCanal will become compatible (mycanal is not smooth and Orange TV worked on 004 but not in 005 ;) )
    Thanks for the work ;)

    Could you release the SMB server separately, so that people with root don't have to tinker with the updates, if they don't need the "other features"?

    - And better advancedsettings in XBMC minix version/Kodi (14 or 15?!) for better buffering, no hickups, faster starts, etc. I have a lot of streams on Genesis that won't buffer correctly with stock settings.

    - And on by usb (selectable in a menu, so people with external hdds won't have to use it), so I can use my A2 lite airmouse to switch the minix on, without the ir-signal (so I can place the minix in a closet)
