I have a Minix U1 and was very pleased with how it worked for quite some time with XBMC 16.3. But as mentioned in the forum, the Movie Scraper stopped working. I can read and write English, but I prefer to have my movie info in Dutch. So after a month with Universal Movie Scraper I took the plunge to update XBMC. Wished I've never done that. First everything is beta or alpha, and very confusing links to what is official. Downloaded what I think was XBMC 17.3 because there is a lot of talk that 17.4 isn't working wel on the U1. Tried to install, but no go. Then I deleted XBMC 16.3 and the install went fine. But I never backed up my database, so I could start from scratch again. XBMC 17.3 is terrible, it hangs, it freezes, I can't work with this. So I tried Kodi 17.4. First a download directly from kodi.tv but would install either. Seemed that I already had a Kodi version, so deleted that to. Then a download via Google Playstore and that went well. Took me 2 hours to put all the settings right and started testing. No Dolby surround and movie skips a frame every second or so. Als with XBMC when I watched a 3D movie the Minix communicated well with my TV and put up the 3D settings on my tv so I only had to confirm it. With Kodi no such thing. Also the frame rate settings are not working. My tv gets no signal as to what hertz setting is has to be. This is probably why the movie skips a frame once every few seconds. Ok, long story short; there are a lot of movie player options out there, but at this point no decent stable one. The last 'final' XBMC is from half 2016! Yes I read Ken saying that it is constantly evolving. But please guys, stick to one version and make that one final before rushing after the next version. 16.3 also never went final. If you guys at Minix think that Kodi/XBMC 17.4 is the best bet, put al your efforts into making this a stable version. If you never stop and make one thing final, were left with a bunch of half working software and thats not why I bought the Minix. I just wanted a simple machine that played my movies from a hard drive. I don't like to tinker and I don't want to read a whole evening just to get things working. I work hard and when I want to relax I want to watch a movie and not be frustrated because my whole evening went to waste because I had to reinstall a whole bunch of programs that don't work in the end. I think there are more people like me who would like a stable version at this point. Thanks in advance!
