This firmware requires Android 7 to be installed.

If running Android 5.1 we advise installing 2.0.1 first (Q5 Pro 2.0.1: http://www.futeko.com/newforum/index.php?topic=1611.0) and then allowing your Q5 Pro to auto-update to latest firmware.

No auto frame switching  working in Kodi anymore.
Neither  through Wraper  or  Internal  Player  .
 Is there any work around solution coming ?

Wrapper auto-switch definitely works. Set Settings - Playback - 24p to ON.

Auto switch in Kodi native player never worked with standard Kodi. This patch should still work but hasn't been tested by us on 2.0.3: http://www.futeko.com/newforum/index.php?topic=1015.0

Are you extracting the update.zip file from the archive? No renaming.

From your description the box isn't finding the update file.

Are you sure?

Wrapper auto switch not working for me in  Kodi .
Auto  frame switch working in Himedia player itself , but not trough the wrapper in Kodi.
Patch for the internal Kodi  player doesn't work either  in 2.0.3 ( well , it  only says "  screen rate  changed to... " , TV  reporting otherwise though , no actual  screen rate changed )
 Never had such an issue on previous  firmware versions .

When you hold the restore button and  turn the box on ,maybe you press the Power button for too long , unlike the Restore button it only need quick press ?

This are such crazy things...
Owning a 150€ mediaplayer since summer 2016. It's almost a year now and they do/can't fix such primairy things like CEC, audio passthrough in Kodi etc.

What kind of stupid fools are developing the software for this machine???  >:(

I wanna use it in a hobby room on an older tv set, but even that's impossible due the subtitle problem.

I bought since 1 month an nVidia Shield for using in my living room
Connecting, setting-up and working. It's even completely controllable by the remote of my TV set due HDMI-CEC.  Never ever had one problem. It's also Android OS and Kodi mediaplayer. That's a kind of sofware development we all need.

The Q5 is still beiing sold today. It's a shame  >:(

Hi, my Q5 is not notifying me of the update, it's currently running HMD-2.0.1. 2017-01-11,164329 and the download link for the firmware to manually upgrade isn't working?

I just wanted to post a reply question if the audio pass-through with Kodi is fixed with this update but you already answered my question...It's stil a NO.  :-[
