    Humm... Lets us hope again.. That it is an issue that wont need another year to solve. Ironically egreat does not advise to use beta's ! So guess they told us so !

    Wireless and DTS still not solved after a year worries me to be honest. As A8 Pro got a simple wireless module it did not need a fix for that. I doubt there are big surprises for Egreat on our list making it a real (not recommended) Beta after all. Probably just some detailed a bit more than before like the EAC3 and P24/P23 problems.

    Bottomline they probably just wanted our comments on PosterWall3 mostly.

    I just wonder if the same issues are present in the firmware for Android 7 the A8 pro got, but there is no-one in these forums to confirm.

    I can't think of a single reason they would not be present. Same SOC + same FW = same results as easy as that. The point is these customers never saw the things working which used to work on Android 5.1.1 and do not anymore on Android 7. DTS dropouts should annoy them though as that is not a missing goodie but just bad behavior.

    Egreat A8Pro use Hi3798MV200 witch not same as SoC from Egreat A5/A10 Hi3798CV200 , DTS problems can miss from that box, all other relate AK86, PosterWall 3, Player functionality are there.

    I am confused a bit now as most of you know I have the Egreat A8 ( Not the A8 pro ) I am fairly happy with the 5.1 software but not happy with there poster wall would I be able to download this new Poster wall 3.0 and would it be better in finding most of my films posters which it does not at the moment.And if this Android 7 if it ever comes out would I be able to download it for my non pro A8 this is the confusing bit for me. :eek::rolleyes:

    @E_CS @Nice Monkey @depmesh i just tried 2 movies : one 768kpbs dts track and another dts hr.. I only tried each for 3-4 minutes but did not hear any dropouts... Maybe should have waited longer ? I could not as my daughter did not let me test well. Will do some more work and see

    Yes it happens at low occurrence and may take up to an hour. I get it a number of times during an entire movie at random intervals, but for sure it is there and for sure it was not there with Android 5.1.1 so it is not the SOC. My Dinobot having the same old SOC does not have it (but running ATV7).

    @Eric The Viking
    You can download and try (also uninstall) PosterWall 3 as it is just another APP. If is not backward compatible just uninstall again.
    Be aware it uses the same database and using both results is a mess for sure. Backup and start clean with each instance.

    that FW was "done" by @E_CS and works for A10...but not as good as it should, as egreat still refuses to release one. it is just for testing as @Nice Monkey said, there are even more issues than for the egreat A5 !

    Eric be fairly Poster wall 3(v3.0.6) is more alpha then beta version wait Egreat Team for new version.
    Custom firmware(CFW) for Egreat A8 (not pro) base on Egreat A5 beta v2.5.0.2 are available on mediafire.
    This CFW are not for user witch can survive with HDR double black bar bug or are happy with Android 5.1.1.

    That's weird.
    The only difference I can think of is that the firmware for A5 has an updated player as well, 3.9.1 whereas I and @Nice Monkey are testing it using the 3.8.4 version. Maybe the problem is solved in 3.9 1

    Apart from the sound issues I'm also experiencing micro-stutters in almost all videos. @Nice Monkey and @E_CS have you noticed this as well? I can't remember having them so pronounced in the 2.0.1.2 firmware.

    @depmesh
    In CFW for A10 base on v2.5.0.2 vidonplayer it self is from 3.9.1 maybe you are right and not best option.
    Personally I didn't notice problems with DTSHD-MA/HRA but for DTS 1509/768kpbs need set DTS compatibility mode ON.

    Will test desktop & player 3.9.1 if you make it available, to see if it makes any difference. PW3 being the default then is not a problem as I have seen and commented PW already. Use PW on Egreat only for testing anyway
