    Thanks for the Mega mirror link, the download was a lot faster.

    A few minor issues.

    When I change the system language to Dutch, the clean app will show in Chinese instead of English or Dutch.
    Is it possible to get an Dutch option in the subtitle option? I would like to keep the system language English and only change the preferred subtitle language to Dutch, no this is not possible and I have to change to whole system language to Dutch to have the preferred subtitle language the same as the system language.

    After the update I had to change the resolution back to uhd 60hz 10 bit, because it defaulted back to 1080p.

    Keep up the good work :) the playback is high of quality.

    Hi oliver

    Switch in settings/display from hdr or auto to sdr and the double bars are gone. Its only a temporary solution but it works.

    Hello abraxas111,

    ok thanks for the information

    but it's too bad not to take advantage of HDR with HDR movies, i hope it will be fixed with the next FW.

    Tested this latest FW now for a couple of days and still some findings:

    - with DTS compatibility set to ON, no 4k file will play in Vidon XBMC only audio.
    - with DTS compatibility set to ON, sound of mkv files out of sync with DTS streams and video looks like the soap opera effect, set to OFF and the problem is home.
    - still not all my movies correctly reconized, even when I want to chance them manually. (Mostly with dutch kids movies, please link the Egreat scraper database also tot tmdb as in Vidon XBMC they are all reconized.
    - in Vidon XBMC 576p files are almost unwatchable due tot hickups, in Egreat player no problem.
    - Egreat music will not reconize my music folder with folders per album Flac or WAV files???

    For series In will wait for Egreat movies 2 is released.

    This box is becoming better and better, please keep on going!!!

    Vidon XBMC still doesn't keep the "vidonme : vidon HDMI" setting, it reverts back to Android Audiotrack.

    After some time using the new beta, i keep having the resolution fallback to 720p or 1080p.

    This happens during the A5 boot.

    How can i get the uhd60hz and colorspace to be saved?
