    On a U9-H
    Passthrough is not working properly. Everything comes through only as Stereo.

    Yes I am getting audio, but upmixed (downmixed??) to stereo. At least Ii guess it is stereo, as that is what my AV receiver is reporting it as.

    Under Skins, when I try to "GET MORE" I just get dumped back to the skins menu page. No attempt to connect to get additional skins happens.
    Yes, WiFi is ON and connected to the internet. I can browse the Google Play store, so everything is working.

    Also a request: Could you please preinstall the Confluence skin I absolutely loathe the new Kiodi estuary skin.

    Why don't you use Kodi? I still believe it is recommended for the U9-H rather than MINIX XBMC.

    Because Kodi (17.3) stutters so badly most of my movies/TV shows (avi, mp4, mkv) are unwatchable. I am VERY sensitive to things like stuttering, frame skipping etc. I am also very sensitive to incorrect aspect ratios and audio sync issues.

    XBMC has always been MUCH better than Kodi.

    i have same issue, on me new u9H i download the xbmc for minix 17.3 alpha
    and No attempt to connect to get additional skins happens.
    Next settings in kodi dont check, because this is for me verry important. (i have last firmware for U9h) with OTA.

    than uninstall it, go to google play, install official kodi verison and everything works fine.

    I think official version is worst to minix than xbmc for minix, or no?

    Yo tengo tambien tengo problemas conla edicion de XBMC para Minix 17.4. Las imagines, tanto en la TV como tan en las peliculas, tartamudean o se congelan. Sólo Kodi 17.3 funciona bien - aunque en el arranque se desmorona varias veces hasta que se estabiliza.
