    What is logitech harmony support. Thought it was already supported? One issue I get with logitech harmony remote is double press when I press button. This was not an issue in 003.

    We added the key layout file of the remote.
    We don't get this report which we have launched the same for X8-H Plus 005 firmware.

    I thought you were going to fix the audio sync problem on Minix XBMC in this update ? :(
  15. MINIX - Ken

    MINIX - Ken Former MINIX Team Member Administrator

    Yes, why not? The audio/video clocks of this firmware are perfectly matched.
    If you still have problem, then probably you should check your setup instead.
    There would be no sync. issue for a normal setup.

    Yesterday evening I turn my MINIX Neo X8-H and I see that an update of 16 mb or so, via FOTA, the do and then later entered the forum and see that there is a bigger update that came out the FW version 005, did the update yesterday with USB_Burning_Tool, ran everything perfectly and strange I see is that I'm still giving me the same information KOT49H -20,150,507, is this correct because if so should have already indicated that I thought had not done well the upgrade but check all, the MD5 checksum of the site coincides with the one I have on the PC after the download, did the right steps and everything worked promptly let the instructions to update the USB_Burning_Tool. So please can you tell me if this information is correct firmware is KOT49H -20,150,507. Thanks for your work ...

    20150507 is correct, we built it and tested it before releasing it.
    There is a time difference between building it and releasing it.
