    that was a bug and has been fixed, there should be no sound output to HDMI when audio jack is in use.

    Bravo Minix ! Thank you for continuous support. Dumb question, where is that SMB server option ? Couldn't seem to find it lol...
    so far so good, will post bug(s) if there's any in bugtracker(s). Cheers.

    Just did some kind of FOTA update about 2 hours ago, it wasn't there an hour earlier when I checked. The launcher does look a lot different, so I think its more than the bugfix. Bedtime now, I will have a closer look tomorrow, but for tonight it worked flawlessly. Thanks.

    Hi, what is the point resolved, i.e. what are the issues described from

    8.) Fixed playback issue of some .avi files

    from changelog?
    I often see that avi files in SD suddendly stop in xbmc stock, and resuming the stream go on for some minutes and stops again.
    The same desn't happen with mkv files HD or Full HD

    Well I'll be... after nearly a year you've fixed CEC for Panasonic users! Do I get a rebate on my Mele F10 Deluxe? Seriously though, well done Minix (at last)! The curse of the early adopter......
