No KODI 15 final?
I extracted the zip and the kodi.apk.
The splash screen shows "15.2 RC" :-(

Hi futeko.com,

I am happy that HiMedia provide a new FW, but can you please kindly think about using a faster hoster for the update files than mediafire?
The download speed is only 22,7 KB/s (I have an 120 MBit/s internet access.) and it will take more than 7 hours to download the file. >:(

Try using JDownloader, honeypie!  :-*

Hi,

I started to test firmware 1.0.9 yesterday. Overall I am quite happy with it so far. The status/notification + navigation bar is back. That is already a huge improvement.

What is still problematic is the internal storage reserved for the system & apps (the default location) which is still limited to 2GB. If you install new applications the message about not enough storage still appears - although there would be enough on the general flash memory. So the "system partition" seems to be too small. And some apps (e.g. all system apps, Google drive...) cannot be moved to the SD (the "general flash memory"). Some weeks ago I got the message from Himedia that this would be solved in the new firmware, apparently it isn't.

Cheers,
Flo

@HDMediaplayer
there must be something wrong with your internet/provider connection
when downloading the update.zip.

With pure Chrome I got 1.5 MByte/sec (one download-slot)
With JDownloader I got 9 MByte/sec (7 download slots)

@futeko:

1. why is it Kodi "15.2 RC"? The official Kodi 15.2 is an the market since weeks

2. Which acceleration settings should be activated in Kodi settings:

libstagefright
MediaCodec
rockchipcodec
rockchipcodec23976

Only one of them or all?

With rockchipcodec23976 activated only, I got heavy stuttering with 23.976 fps movies.

I will get an answer to this from Himedia tomorrow.

What happens if you enable all of them?

@futeko:
with all 4 codecs activated a full-hd movie with 23.976fps plays well and smooth.
audio passthrough (DTS) works also without stuttering

I would like to know what are the differences between the 4 codecs anyway to choose the optimal configuration.

The problem switching my TV to black, when Kodi is started and the H8 is configured to be at 4K resolution,
is solved now :-)

I will test videos with 4K further.

Hi RnBADBoY and pepe,

thank you for your feedback.
I tried also JDownloader, I got also only 56KB/s (4 download slots).
I don't have a Mediafire Premium account! When I download from other host's I reach 14.6 MByte/s!
For me it looks like a Free-User speed limitation from Mediafire.
RnBADBoY and pepe do you have Premium accounts?
