    @nenito2k I am not using Cetusplay currently, but it adds features for sure. I am using the Egreat Controller APP instead.

    dimmer settings are not saved. in installations is 2 and when loading, the screen shines brightly as if level 8...... in the previous ones it was the same
    in old worked without problems

    Where can we get that?

    Also, do you guys set adjust display frequency to on or off? I used to have it to off running at 4K60hz, but now setting it to on and having the player adjusting it to 4k24hz automatically also changes the colours giving me warmer ones. Probably it did in the past but just hadn't noticed....

    Imprex of course at off.

    Finally, I have also found out that new version completely breaks HDMI-cec for me and only by removing the A10 HDMI cable from the receiver is it restored on my setup.

    Egreat Controller is available on the Chinese Site only (barcode download).

    I am using adjust ON.

    HDMI CEC is implemented by Google within Android itself and changes with every Android Generation. Not done by Egreat.
    Setup to be found under Android Setup.
    Use a HDMI-CEC blocker if needed (=HW plug without the CEC pin).

    Apk for Egreat Controller(Phone Controller) for Android is now on mediafire on corresponding CFW version folder.
    Note: Using Egreat Desktop 3.8.4 will break visibility of box for Egreat Controller.

    @depmesh if you try the controller please let us know if it is good; i like cetusplay so no need to change...

    Thanks for the answer. However, using the beta Android 7 for a year, I found a way to circumvent its quirks. What I mean is that, with that version I could control my receiver using the TV remote, it's just that when I wanted to use any app on the TV I had to have the A10 on to have sound output on the receiver. Now, I cannot control the receiver with the TV remote no matter what. I succeed by setting passthrough on the A10 to on, but then after a shut down it is broken again... I'll try again and tinker with the settings or get myself a blocker.

    Also, is it only me that I have problems with PW3? Do you guys find it works good for you? Can anybody with access to the software developers ask them to bring back the functionality of PW2 if possible?

    I guess he means the audio cinema app that is on the egreat website. I was wondering myself.

    Once on Android 7 in fact all sticks formatted with FAT32 will work. The flash format and bootloader swap most likely is not working but the update with wipe will almost always succeed.

    The stick compatibility problem is only critical when doing Android 5 <=> Android 7 transitions. This because they use different flash partitioning and a different bootloader.

    A guy asked on us forum if coaxial and optical ports play flac files at 192khz 24bit or not?
  15. Nice Monkey

    I don't think so mostly. It is in the grey area. It is time to say goodbye to SPDIF.
    24/96 is the theoretical limit of TOSLink (it was designed for 20bit at 48k). Still there are transceivers out there that, with good cables, can reliably pass 176.4k or even 192k

    Oh yes if you can choose then Coax is by far the better option for SPDIF as strange as this may sound.

    I am still struggling with dts-hd issue, is there any solution to this? After a while the sound goes away. Anyone else have this problem?

    You can sent problem titles via PM to me. If I have them I will try those.
    No did not see this recently. I do recommend doing a wipe though (=clean install).
    You shouldn't move between CN and EN CFW versions without doing so for sure.

    I do not run KODI and don't apply fixes for it.
