    I would be really awesome, if you could solve this two issues which still exist in latest orginal X8-H plus firmware:
    - Amazon video app not working (browsing OK, but no video can be started. Short spinner and back to movie list)
    - Sometimes black screens on life TV channel switching with TvHeadEnd. (there are some post of me in Minix forum regarding this problem)
    Thank you

    hey bob,

    if there is something you can do about the blackscreen-issue by any chance:
    the problem is not related to the pvr-plugins in kodi. ive put a number of .ts files on a usb and played them from there. if you start the playback of a file while another one is still playing (like switching channels) eventually you have the very same behaviour: no picture but sound is fine.
    kodis log says the same:

    23:12:02 T:1897707888 DEBUG: ERROR check in pts error!
    23:12:02 T:1897707888 DEBUG: check in pts failed
    23:12:02 T:1897707888 DEBUG: CDVDPlayerVideo::CalcDropRequirement - hurry: 0

    my conclusion would be that there is a bug in the codec itself.

    is there a way in kodi advancedsettings.xml to make a playback stop first before the next playback beginns? some kind of pause/wait before switching to next file/channel? that could do as workarround.


    EDIT:
    minix released a test-firmware for the pvr-issue. after intensive testing (thanks to the thumb of my wife) i think i can say the issue aint no issue no more. hooray! from my point of view this firmware could be a basis for a new finless-rom. hooray^2

    But I agree. Non-rooting is non-sense.
    There just are so many cool things you can not have without root:
    Titanium backup
    Native mounts
    Automated reboots
    Spoofing of device id
    Hosting servers like PVR
    Ssh
    Scripts (... Init.d)
    Exposed
    ...
    But for people who don't event know what all this is, keeping the "door shut" is probably not even a bad idea. The are lots of people out there like that too. Unless there is a way to root, I don't mind getting the device unrooted. Warranty is an issue tho.

However, its not bad to have Admin access to your computer, lmao. It's the same thing. I don't use Minix's non-rooted roms, it's a waste of hardware. Their non-rooted roms do not fully utilize the capabilities of the Minix X8H+. My X7 and X8H+ boxes run so freak'n sweet. I use "Finless" roms because of the latest Android versions he uses, plus his customizations and I still add my own.
    P.S. Netflix, Amazon, Kodi (Isengard) and Youtube runs with little to no issues on my boxes.
    Tip: For those of you that use Addons for watching TV Shows and Movies other than the one's mentioned above. I would suggest creating a "Free" account on "RealDebrid" and configure your addons to access that account for better streaming.

    There are many other tools available for SMB and “Fake WiFi” that provide a more mature configuration when a NEO X8H-Plus has root access.
    I find it very annoying that companies can sell products without you having root (Admin) access to them. Especially cell phones to which you can pay upwards to $1000 dollars and basically you have "Power User" access to it. Imagine buying a computer with a Microsoft Operating System to which you are not the Admin and you have to rely on Microsoft for configurations, installations, customizations. tweaking, etc. Minix knows that the majority of their sales are coming from customers that want to access entertainment freely. However they don't cater to us. If you purchase a Minix box to play video games like Nintendo, SNES, PS2, etc that still may be frowned upon by some people and or companies. Anyway, these Android TV box companies better get their crap together before a Smart TV comes out in all screen sizes running the latest Android OS with more memory, disk space and a faster processor to which you can root it and configure it however you want. What will Minix do then?
    When you cater to the mass, you keep loyal customers.

    ***Finless***
    Status on the new Neo X7, H8 and H8Plus roms? We are dying here. I will even test your betas. Please let me know. Thanks.

    and i dont want to attack anyone here including clarkss12...

    and to be honest i am partly refering to pre 008:

    - netflix not working right (minor prob to me. but still: sound aint 100%. and of course no HD.... yeah not minixes fault....sure....)
    - amazon video not working... i belive at all! propably minix aint respnsible for that of course.
    - youtube problems of all kinds (i believe most of it about resolution). damned google ^^ hail minix.
    - pvr in kodi not working right. i am talking about ALL clients! including simple iptv (or whatever its called). propably .ts files in general dont even play right.
    ....
    i am sure the buglist ist far bigger than these few items. propably bigger than the list of features the f-ing box was advertised for when i bought it back a year ago.

    sure! if i buy a 500hp maserati for doing daily shopping i would be happy with not beeing able to go faster than 50kmh because they mounted bicycle wheels... accidentally... without a clue how to replace them...
    but it is a god damned maserati with 500hp! i wanna go on a autobahn! damned.

    the box seems to be working well? i dont think so.
    I guess I should have been more specific, I have the Minix X8H +. Been sick for a few days, so not thinking clearly yet.

    yes it became personal to me. you are right. how would it not? ken told me that minix cant do anything about the pvr-bugs. why would he delete that very statement an hour later? they are fooling people. how can i not take this personal? i payed for a working product and am now investing my personal time in bugfixing... since 12 month...why?!?
    technically: yes i did consider everything and came to a conclusion (take a look at the thread at minixforum if you are interested).
    and it is ridiculous anyways that you have to root your box in the first place in order to get rid of bugs that are not even bugs. eg spoofing for youtube resolutions.....

    positive about all this is that this thread got revived. and there is other content except than people asking bob for an eta all the time.

    i am sorry for this beeing totally off topic but i really think people should know. and i am sure most people passing by here are following the 008 bugtracker over at minixforum too.
    i got a lot involved at minixforum lately. i am in fact very mad because livetv in kodi still doesnt work. please take a look at the 008 thread over there.
    what minix just did to me, in fact it was ken: they banned me from their forum! this is how minix treats customers that get involved in bugfixing. they sell super-buggy stuff wrapped up in a fancy housing. and when there are problems popping up they ban people who speak out loud whats going on. i clearly see personal consequences of my own to that action.
    thats it. just wanted everybody to know about the great support of minix.

    cheers
