    in any case hisilicon dead or not does not matter as the SOC is old anyway and was never going to get any sort of update...so who care! the one that let us down were egreat and egreat ONLY! they promised VIDON as an exclusive for their devices and updates for vidon....then nothing...they promised android 7...and nothing....they promised a new generation poster wall...and nothing !

    Thanks for the insight. Yeah, makes total sense in retrospect. There has been basically zero development from egreat in the last months, or even year.

    The only "perfect" mediaplayer (just linux, without poster wall or kodi) it is M9702 based on mtk 8581. The rest...
    I have Zapitti Duo HDR, Zidoo X20, Himedia Q10Pro, Apple TV 4K, M9702 player. I just use M9702 for movies and Apple TV 4K for series.
    I sold Egreat A5, kept Himedia.

    Very sad :(
    Just a few bugs remains to fix to make Egreat the best player for me...
    But looks like I will never see the VC1 issue fixed and "4K HEVC Rip - extra black bar" bug fixed.
    Did find one more critical issue in Gallery - it freezes photos and lost some pictures. Have no idea why.

    For example, in folder "Photo" I can't move from IMG_0073.jpg to IMG_0079.jpg and vice versa.
    In folder "Test" Gallery freezes on IMG_0096.jpg and doesn't move to n_lutakko0004.jpg. Plus, it lost IMG_0065.jpg.

    @Evgeny the 4K HEVC Rip has been fixed very long ago...it was confirmed here many times....at least if you are talking about the double bar bug...

    Yes, I'm talking about the double black bar bug. It present in 1.5.1.0 and it was in previous FWs.
    It's ok on FHD screens but in 4K it exists. And it's critical bug for 4K player. I guess, the most critical by now.

    for now the best media player on the market is the new MINIX U22 !! it has hdmi 2.1 and android 9.0 ! FW dev. has been excellent in all their models !! however i don't wanna get one as it misses AV1 codec support....

    Hm, why did they don't move this fix to the stable FWs? Android 7 - it's just beta. Whithout VidOn. PW3 added but this critical bug doesn't. :(

    why do you need hdmi 2.1? It's not bad but not sure it's better than Egreat.

    Why is it the best? Only because of Android 9 and HDMI 2.1? It doesn’t even decode 4K beyond 60frames...and no mention of QMS, either. So HDMI on it is just marketing.

    It is great for KODI lovers only.
    Ugoos AM6 Plus might even be a better choice?

    @Sledgehamma yes those reasons alone make it the best on the market as of now...! add excellent FW support and you have a device that is great... 1000 times better than most and egreat !

    Not sure. Picture quality is my priority. And format support. As for Android 9 and HDMI verson - don't see any value in it. Do you have 8K TV with HDMI2.1 or have a 8K movies? They might be released some time late (three or four years later) but that time 2.2 version will be actual. Moreover, I have no intention to replace my 4K system by 8K equipment unless 3D support returns.

    @Richard Xu it's been over 2 months since you posted something...and we did not see any updates whatsoever since...

    At least on the Chinese WeChat account they are still posting About A15 for example ....I really wonder what the hell they are doing. Did they fire all their developers? If not, they are only sitting on their hands. There is no other explanation for zero development for that long of a time. But I guess we will see official Android 7 “soon”....
    @Richard Xu : you have lost your face!

    The A15 in fact is a model very close to a Zidoo UHD2000 with a Sabre ESS ES9038/XMOS based Audio Panel included. Also has a Linear PSU like that other model. I wonder how that one will sell without including adequate FW development, but there seems to be nothing wrong with the HW. It is using all high end components and also better noise/heat handling than the Zidoo.

    It is still using the same Hisilicon SOC obviously.

    Nice box would love to give it a go :)
