    Please double check your audio output settings.
    Update resets them.

    I right away changed that setting back after upgrading because I knew I would get in trouble otherwise...

    I suspect the plugged-in headset being ignored/turned off during the boot process, since that's the only visible difference with the situation before updating. Why would it do that anyway while a headphone is plugged in? (I've tried with and without headphones...)

    I would really prefer a switch to disable the hdmi audio-stream to force toslink output (labeled as such even.)

    I do see red light coming through the toslink so there is signal. Just no "data.."

    Only such attractions I had a problem with the video or sound went ahead and did not correspond to what stim number in the video. It was just in KM and VLC PLAYER beta and new Version. I did not understand, because Samsung Note 2 no problem even LG GPAD 8.3. Then I went into the settings and there Minix activate both functions DTS + changed some upper setting and then I let go again .... movie images and sound as saddles lid on the pot. So I think a lot of things work correctly people do not see where it has set.I would not write a tutorial where Minix set? There is growing newer features, but I have it turned off. Anyway, I'm glad whatever now has no MINIX mistakes and I am very pleased with the box. thanks minix

    Yes, but is supposed to enable when we wake up. It doesnt, it stays disabled, the ícons on the top left screen stay grey, and it doesnt work on Ethernet nor wifi.

    If I boot with the headphones connected (which is needed to disable hdmi audio output to force toslink usage) it now gets disabled breaking the workaround to enable DTS to toslink... ;:)::::

    I have a x8-h. Running kernel version 3.10.33 when I check the "online update" button it says no update. What am I doing wrong?

    Friend gimi if you get that message is that you either have the original firmware with which bought the MINIX or already have loaded the latest update. So you have to give more information because we need to know what the date of your firmware. If not impossible help.

    F switcher changes tv screen refreshing frequecny to match it with currently playng videos frame refreshing rate. You can see a 1 second black screen effect at start of any moovie, during tv set is chnging frequency. The main goal of freq switcher is to get as smooth as possible video playback without stuttring.
