The framerate does not show with this firmware when playing a film which it did in the 1.6 firmware,so no instant check if correctly played. Also with this new firmware do you have to have the 24HZ switched to off in the Settings as in the previous firmware? Also new firmware installed as recommended make sure you turn the volume control on the handset to max (use the volume control on the amp or processor for best results) as it gets reset during the new firmware installation

One needs to turn 24P ON to make auto-frame rate switching work. This is correct (the label should be changed though)  but reverse to how the temporary script version worked.
The fps indication was introduced as far as i remember with the Chinese equivalent FW1.07 script of pcristi (was in the Chinese release notes). It is not available here. That is a pity as it is valid information.

If the problems are gone now can't be judged by me as I am running DVD and BD.

FPS display was only a feature of the beta himediaplayer app, never official 1.6.

Ultimately, it might have looked like a good feature but all it was doing was reporting what himediaplayer thought fps was. In the case of FW 1.0.6 and earlier this would have correctly reported FPS but still HDMI Hz output was incorrect. The best way to determine what fps is being output is through the info display of your TV / projector.

The good news is that after some initial testing I think FPS mismatch / microstutter bug is fixed in 1.0.7. Certainly the usual test videos play without the frame skips. More testing welcome, but for 23.976 and 29.970 I think 1.0.7 is smooth. That's with 24p mode turned on.

Test 23.976 videos:

I think you should switch now.   ;)

Q5/Q10 Pro do everything Q5/Q10 4K3D do but with support for new formats and much more powerful chipset.

In the case of FW 1.0.6 and earlier this would have correctly reported FPS but still HDMI Hz output was incorrect. The best way to determine what fps is being output is through the info display of your TV / projector.

Agreed, but still it is nice to also indicate the frame rate. When in doubt one may look for the remote of TV/AMP and find again where the info is to be found (not always that easy and not always correct (confusing 24P and 24P/1001 is common there also).

After all what is against including it? In my view absolutely nothing! So I suggest to carry it over from the Chine FW 1.07 with the next update.

It is a small thing so is correcting Exnternal spelling. That extra N is still there. Takes 5 min to solve and a bit strange with the attention of specifically this release for subtitle support.

But undocumented bugfix: The "Safe Eject pop-up" is now translated to English from Chinese. It may be added to the changelog. This way at least many  additional  owners become aware that this feature is available.

As far as I can see the FPS mismatch bug is solved by the realization of "auto frame-rate switching".  Turning on 24P support enables also 25/50/30/60P switching on my box. See this immediately when playing DVD's (25P/30P mix). Not announced as such; just as that bug fix. Himedia probably wants to see reports back from the field how it works in practice first before bringing it as a new feature.
