There is also a new version of HiMedia's Android remote app, compatible with Android 7 phones.

It requires firmware 2.0.3 or later installed on the Q5/Q10 Pro.

I can confirm this problem:
    Via samba - same share - wrapper is default.
    Via NFS - same share- kodi player is default.
    What i'm doing wrong?

So the solution seems to be:
   Check your playercorefactory.xml.
   In the past release there was a stupid line forcing nfs to go to Kodi
   <rule protocols="nfs|http|rtmp|sop" player="VideoPlayer" /> <!--all nfs-->

   I remove it and I had no problems for the past 2 months. Maybe, for some unexplained reason, Himedia choose to keep it in the new release. With no   explanation of the reason, this looks just stupid from Himedia.

How do I get to edit "playercorefactory.xml" - maybe a noobie question, but I really don't want to mess with SSH anything similar.

It's easy to edit playercorefactory and doesn't require SSH / ADB or anything like that.

Either:

Method 1 (using Q5/Q10 Pro)

- Install a file manager app like 'total commander' (my current favourite).
- Navigate to root/sdcard/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata/
- Edit playercorefactory.xml (total commander has a built in file editor)

Method 2 (using a PC)

- Enable Samba sharing on Q5/Q10 Pro (Settings - More - SAMBA Service - Enable)
- Navigate to Q5/Q10 Pro on a PC and then to /sdcard/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata/
- Edit playercorefactory.xml using PC file editor

For both methods, to stop NFS shares playing through Kodi internal player you should remove 'nfs|' from playercorefactory.

So:

Code: [Select]
<rule protocols="nfs|http|rtmp|sop" player="VideoPlayer" /> <!--all nfs-->
Becomes..

Code: [Select]
<rule protocols="http|rtmp|sop" player="VideoPlayer" /> <!--all nfs-->

Thanks, it worked!

I have observed a strange problem with .SRT subtitles, maybe not on all mediatypes..
Now, we don't have the old problem, with subtitles that have problematic timing not being shown.
The issue that I have observed is more like the opposite, the subtitle line is being shown until the next line is due.
It looks somewhat distracting  :)

There will be an OTA update but I can't say exactly when.

I would advise doing a fresh install using a USB stick and the restore/upgrade button method.

Will this update fix the audio pass-through problem with the Kodi 17 player due to the added IEC61937 Audio standard within Kodi? And how about the issue with the custom homescreen and a screensaver?

No it don't, but it can if you read this topic;

I really like to use the update 2.04 on my Q5Pro, but I have the same problems like when I bought this player in January.
The software (Both HiMedia MediaCenter and Kodi) is not capable to open my NFS NAS permissions.

Its quite frustating spending so much time with Q5pro and network permissions, whereas every other device in my household can handle my NFS permissions easily.

Exactly what is OTA doing on these devices? It seems to be a useless waste of space on these android media boxes.

If neither Himedia mediacentre or Kodi can read the NFS shares I think it's a problem with the share.

Kodi particularly is usually very reliable at reading different types of shares.
