    I suspect (hope) he is referring to Egreat, and not you.

    Hello All,

    Maybe a stupid question, but is there any news regarding a new Android 7 FW? I know, I am not checking this forum that much anymore. And if I look at the date, the last FW Android was 3 month ago and then nothing, which isn't really a surprise, but maybe I missed something in between.

    @nenito2k,

    I checked that one, but there is not that much to see. So there is no news regarding Android 7.

    Thank you nenito2k

    I found it, but I can see it is based on v16 of Kodi so :
    Where in the menus do I:
    - Enable 4K resolution
    - HDR
    - Atmos & DTS-X support

    @Christian Trinderup we already wrote multiple TIMES that VIDON is NOT KODI ! VIDON is based on kodi 16.1 but has 4k, iso menu, HEVC and HDR + 3d sound ! something only kodi 18 just managed to make available...

    Hi, fellow A5 owners and Egreat Research Team members,

    I've just updated to FW v2.0.1.0beta with Android 7. The update process following the instruction is straight forward, and I encountered no problem at all.

    The single most significant improvement of this new FW of course is the normal playing of x265 HDR 4k movies, getting rid of the black bar dropout problem in V.1x with Android 5. Now I save a lot of hard disks space by replacing the huge uncompressed HEVC version with the slim x265 version of the 4K HDR movies.

    Looking forward to the next version, I hope it will further fix the following issues:
    1. Audio drop-outs when playing some movies, as attested by other A5 users here;
    2. The music player doesn't seem to be able to play multichannel music in .wav or .cue files. The music player now cannot select the 5.0 format and only output music in 2.0 format. Back in V.1x, the music player has no such problem.
    3. The blue tooth output doesn't seem to work. With V.1.x FW I can easily pair my blue tooth earphone with the A5, but now I could no longer pair my blue tooth earphone with it.

    All in all, the new FW version is definitely an improvement and its release adds further value to our already cost-effective purchase of A5. Congratulations to our Egreat Research Team! Keep up your great efforts!

    thanks for the input...that is the REASON we can't understand why Egreat never updated the BETA to a stable RELEASE !!! it has been over 6 months since then !

    Finally I managed to connect A5 with my bluetooth earphone with bluetooth v.4.2. However, the effective range is just about half a feet! Beyond this distance, it automatically disconnect. This behaviour renders the bluetooth connection useless.

    I wonder whether it is a problem of the FW or of Android v.7 ?

    That A8 Pro is looking good I must say. With internal HDD too. Good product between A5 and A10 and a direct competitor for Zidoo Z10 and Himedia Q10 Pro.

    The Zidoo Z10 Realtek RTD1296DD chipset, no Hisilicon.

    Sooner or later it will come to existing platforms but it takes very long indeed.
