I quickly tested the new firmware 1.08 but can not find anything positive.
-50/60hz 720/1080 still NOT working, no Auto framerate Switch  ! Cant be true!

- 3D Bluray MVC ISO is NOT fixed.
- DVD and dvd-iso not working in kodi

He was quick to crash in the search for kodi library films.
also the big problem of reading DVDs has not been resolved. indeed worsened, not only it kodi not read them yet but also the internal reader does not read them more '.
I then tried to change wrappler primary reader in kodi and the DVD starts, but you do not hear the audio.
for now the new firmware is just a failure. I return to the old 1.07

You can get 50>60 / 60>50 Hz auto switch by installing this patch: http://www.futeko.com/newforum/index.php?topic=1043.0

To clarify your point, 3D MVC ISOs play, but 23.976Hz is output at 24Hz. Not all 3D MVC ISOs are 23.976Hz.

Most DVD folder / DVD ISOs play in both Himediaplayer and Kodi internal player. Some do not though in Himediaplayer and this is being worked on.

If you disable wrapper in Kodi all DVD ISOs should play using Kodi's internal player. The lack of audio you're experiencing is almost certainly a setup problem. Look in Kodi settings. SYSTEM - Settings - System - Audio output and make sure settings match your setup.

You shouldn't experience crashing with 1.0.8 (certainly not any more than 1.0.7). If you didn't install using the restore button method (on back on box) please reinstall using this method for maximum stability.

Hi

Have now updated to version 1.0.8

But have still the old problems like: Its´not possible to uninstall preinstalled apps  f.x. Skype and Facebook, well. it looks like its´possible, but next time i turn the Q5 pro box on again, the apps is back  ???

And it can still not remember settings,  f.x. when i turn 10 bit picture on it works fine, but next time i turn the box on it hase turned  back to 8 bit.

I has understand that this problems should has been fixed in the new version 1.0.8

why to resolve problem about 50/60 hz  switch
I must apply a pacth (only by experts). given that this problem was to your knowledge, why you have not entered into the new firmware changes, instead inserting small insignificant things, while this was very important?

We (futeko) are not HiMedia. We repeatedly inform them of bug/feature requests and they act on them or not.

Auto switching between 50 and 60Hz is a feature that not everybody wants or would use. The patch optionally provides this functionality for those who want it and is not very difficult to install.

What we've been asking HiMedia for is better control via menu of auto switching (and resolution / HDR / colorspace). The next firmware will be based on a new SDK and will be Android 7. We hope it will be better in this regard.
