BD-ISO full menus did not make it into 2.0.5.

However, a BETA version to add support to Himediaplayer can be found here: http://www.futeko.com/newforum/index.php?topic=2291.0

Great to see new firmware, but I guess Netflix issue still hasn't been fixed?

I have upgraded to 2.0.5 successfully today morning. Seems okay.

However, HD Passthrough is still not working within Kodi unless I use the wrapper.

I was under the impression that this upgrade would fix it.

Can someone please clarify?

This upgrade does not add 7.1 audio passthrough to native Kodi.

7.1 is available in Kodi for local/LAN files using wrapper.

The pcristi custom firmware supports 5.1 audio passthrough in native Kodi.

Many thanks for the info; a couple of queries though:

1. Can I install pcristi firmware over 2.5?

2. When can we expect an update that will address 7.1 passthrough to native Kodi?

1. Yes.

2. At this stage I don't know if/when this will happen.

I am unable to use any "10 bit" options under "Video Color space & HDMI deep colour in "Advanced Options"
 I have tried both 2160@30 and 2160@60. Does anyone else face this problem? It was working fine with 2.0.4.

Hello everyone, I've found that videos always stop every day between 12:00 and 1:00 p.m.
This is very strange, if I change the time in the clock "+/- 1 hour, for example", the videos do not stop in that period of time,
This also happens with my old Q5, I already had other boxes like zidoo,
this only happens in the Himedia boxes, any solution? please help

Do you watch your movies with subtitles?
