    But I do not know that 7.1 sound on your Denon will not play through an optical cable but just an HDMI cable. And for HDR playback, 10-bit on your U9, you need both HDMI 2.0 and your Denon to TV. The optical cable only has a passport of 5.1

    I have read that the U9 is preloaded with Kodi 17.1 and recommendations to delete it and download kodi 17.3. Wouldn't the U9 simply overright 17.1 to 17.3 if it is downloaded?

    It seems so, from Kodi website: You can install this build just on top of your current Kodi installation without doing a reinstall or cleanup as we do a full migration if needed. All you add-ons or installed skin will keep working.

    True.But for that U9 can't do anything.you need to use HDMi only.My Denon AVR is not compatible HDR so only watching 4K content.

    Seems like the recommendation is to go HDMI only?

    OK got my box up and running and i do notice the videos are much darker than with the 8H-plus. MY firmware is fw0001. I thought I read that there was a fw004 update to fix the dark issue. Was it released? The main screen says i am up to date.

    When you say "main screen" what are you referring to?
    Are you using the system update app?
    Maybe you could post a screenshot?

    By main screen i mean the screen the appears after the unit is powered on. Before going into any apps such as Kodi.
    If i go into the settings/device/about/ and click system update it says Your system is up to date. Going down the list in the 'about' menu the Build is U9H FW001 2016/12/10

    OK i now see the system update app and am running an update. Once completed i'll run it again.

    Check the system update app. If it doesn't show any updates then clear cache/data from the system app.

    I purchased a Neo U9-H and am unable to connect to Movie HD using any VPN. My Neo X8-H will connect to Movie HD but for some reason the U9-H won't.
    I bought 2 UH-9s and neither one will connect once the VPN is turned on.

    Any suggestions?

    I run 5 or so minix boxes off a synology ds213j with 2x 4tb in raid1
    That wld make a ds216j or so given current models. If you just use that as data source and not run a zillion packages on it, it works flawlessly

    Hello Alexjj.
    I run in the same problem. Only way to see the harddisk is by resetting the netwerk settings. And this Will kill the VPN connection. I also would like. To have Some advice as I am not an experienced Android user. With an other operating system vpn can be switched of for a particular add-on.
