    Dear MINIX Dev Team,

    I tried the previous betas of XBMC for MINIX based on Kodi v17.3 and v17.4, they are pretty buggy.
    Based on my experience with previous releases (v15, v16) XBMC for MINIX has definitely better performance on my MINIX U1, than official Kodi releases.
    Since the developement/release of XBMC for MINIX seems to be time consuming and not continuous, is there any way to create my own version using Kodi v17.6 source code?

    I think the community would really like to see XBMC for MINIX release after each Kodi (final) major release.

    Can we expect to have XMBC for MINIX v17.6 any time soon? It looks like now the Kodi v17.6 is pretty stable.


    Thanks!

    I would absolutely love to to see XMBC for MINIX 17.6. I'm stuck using XMBC for MINIX 13.3 as it the only one that sees my Windows 10 shares. Please guys! Let's do this!

    17.6 is buggy that's for sure! I think the last really reliable version was 17.2 or 3. With 17.6, when you hit the back button it disconnects for a second.... like there's no signal to the tv. Screen goes blank then reappears.... super annoying.... worst bug yet wow!!!

    @Aaron1966, not my experience at all. Each release gets more stable with fewer bugs. 17.6 is the best Kodi 17 release so far, although I should add I am running it on a Minix U9-H.

    it's a shame on MINIX team, that there are no updates of XBMC for MINIX....
    themoviedb.org scraper not working again with v16.3, poor support!

    With SPMC 17.6a2 the picture is stuttering with my U1 (FW013).
    Same for others?

    Still the best player is XBMC Minix Version 16.3 :/

    I agree that XMBC Minix 16.3 is best for U1 (after trying all other versions of Kodi, XMBC, SPMC) but still can't connect to my Windows Shares. I use Kodi 18 nightlies for that. Annoying but functional I guess.

    This is why I don't understand why MINIX Dev Team doesn't provide us new build (17.6).....
    In this case next time probably I will try a device from a different manufacturer, because MINIX devices are cool, but no new (and regular) proper player....

    Indeed he is right. 17.6 is I don't think a reliable version. I have also switched back to 17.2. Can't say about the rest but 17.2 is the best for me.Doesn't lag or crash at all.
