I was living in Minix bliss land on firmware 007 with Kodi 15.2 Isengard (HDMI to TV) until firmware 008 was released and all of a sardine I was being plagued with the split second audio drops when streaming 5.1 audio, annoying enough to start googling for answers, I was surprised to see it was quite a hot topic. As a side note the VPN logo would not illuminate green when connected which was annoying too but something I could live with. Woohoo Kodi 16.1 Jarvis is released, well as it turns out not so woohoo, same problem. Boyakasha, along comes firmware 009 I thinks to meself, these guys are good so it must be sorted, wrong it got worse if anything. So long story short, since the beginning of 2016 I have been pulling my hair out trying to troubleshoot this problem without success, I got to the end of Google in my quest and yes they do ask you to turn off the lights. I tried the official Minix XMBC with all its hacks and settings but alas it did't help either, I got to the point of looking at alternative boxes both Android and PC based, almost hit submit on a payment for a Nvidia Shield Pro (only because Minix will not upgrade the Neo X8-H Plus past Kit Kat) and then the eureka moment hit, it was working just fine on firmware 007 with Kodi 15.2 Isengard init!! So, simple enough task to flash back to firmware 007, or so one would think, I followed the USB Buring Tool method and again was pulling my hair out as the box would not be recognised by the software, more searching on the Minix forum until I stumbled upon a post by a clever spark that I wish I could thank but cannot find his post again, unplug the power, push and hold the reset button, plug in the power WHILE still holding the reset button then push the power button to switch on the box, all of this while still pushing the reset button, bang box recognised in USB Burning Tool, and I mean instantly. Firmware downgraded to 007A (20150924), Kodi 15.2 Isengard installed and guess what, yes you clever people not one audio drop, I sat the whole of last night watching to my hearts content without a single cut in audio, back to living in Minix bliss land, although this time I swear I could hear violins in the background, aaaagh. Disclaimer, Take Special Note: 1. Flashing completely wipes all your data, it's a fresh start people, I am not suggesting in any way you do the same as me. 2. I know certain addons won't be supported but hey I am getting my moneys worth on the Neo X8-H Plus until that time. 3. No I have not been brave enough to try Kodi 16.1 Jarvis because this configuration works for me, end of. Love you all, bye. P.S The VPN logo is illuminated green when connected, just in case you were wondering.
