    That is when it gets really complicated. You need to get your hands dirty with Android like you see over here with the Android TV ROM:

    http://www.minixforum.com/threads/android-tv-on-the-minix-u9-h.16908/page-11#post-145002

    You also need to be HDMI connected to a DD+ audio receiver too. It has to be DD+ a regular DD only HDMI audio receiver will not work with any Android TV Netflix App if you want 5.1 audio.

    That Mega - Android TV Netflix .apk I linked to above has been specially modified to bypass the 5.1 Android Audio check and work with 2.0 Audio only.

    When I use the Netflix apk from wrxtasy my shows will only buffer to 24% only, no matter how long I wait. Anyone else having this issue? Ever since google removed Netflix from play store I haven't been able to use it. Very frustrating.

    Try to reboot your system while the app is installed

    Search for "Test Patterns" in Netflix, top right shows the resolution, it adapts according to your connection speed so give it time to test.

    Hy,
    I installed Netflix with the link you provided and followed your instructions... rebooted, enabled/disabled fake wifi and when i launch the app i get only the red circle turning at the bottom and after a while it says no network check your connection. I'm connected to my network via rj45 cat6 cable and youtube works fine.
    Can you help?

    Thanks

    Try to unplug your cable and check if the app works with wifi ,real wifi not the fake function...if not try to reinstall the app

    Thank you for the reply!

    Already tried: real wifi connection (with cable unpluged), uninstall any residual files of the old Netflix files, rebooted device after installing new Netflix app with file installer app (that came with the U9-H), still only get the turning red circle with the logo. I can't even get to the login part!

    Hi, what is the most updated version?

    Netflix_v5.3.1_HD.apk
    Netflix_3.2.2 Android TV Mod.apk

    I know that the Android TV Mod version allows 1080p but is it newer than v5.3.1?

    thanks

    Both allows 1080p I believe. I was able to run Netflix_v5.3.1_HD.apk just fine but the only thing I don't like about it is it's more of a tablet apk. I like the layout better on the Netflix_3.2.2 Android TV Mod.apk because it's remote friendly, but it doesn't work for me. It buffers to 24% and just stays there, can't watch anything with it.

    The version for smartphones runs 720p max.
    You can check the date of releases in Apkmirror for each version. But it's two apps with different interfaces so it doesn't matter what the most updated version...
