And with 1.0.7 firmware and SPMC 13.3.4 beta1, you cannot do it anymore?
Strange, I don't think there is much changes on SMB for 13.3.3 and 13.3.4 beta1 SPMC as far as I know.
Yes, in 105 (original Card) Using SPMC, I see movies that are on my computer Using the SMB ( Videos -> Files -> Add Videos... -> Browse -> Windows network (SMB) -> and find your windows 8)
With 107, SPMC 1333 and 1334Beta is impossible access to SMB
I see Workgroup , after tell "time out".
After install SPCM I make Unistall, and restart the chameleon, only after I make new installation.


EDITION:
And more...
I make Root , installed the Samba Share, I see me chameleon in my network,
But using the SPMC is impossible access to my computer.

Out of SPMC, Firmware of chameleon, if I go to file explorer, Network, I see all my 4 computers
I try enter, make the Username and password, and nothing.. impossible enter.

Devices:
TV: Samsung UE55ES8000 ; Media: Open Hour Chameleon, RaspBerryPI, PopCorn A210.

This is my repossitory for KODI / SPMC

once again, please test the alternative method, described at the youtube video. does it work?
SMB problems are not only related to the SPMC or Firmware UI. Maybe WINS Problem or DNS Problem of your SMB Servers/Network. Have you tried to restart the SMB Share(Server) and immediately after restart connect once again.

These are not firmware issues... start your own thread and ask for support from other users who know how to setup their openhour.

Hi there,
Sorry new to forum, Smile
Just wondering if I need to backup OS on SD card before installing the new firmware, or make copy of SD card that came with media box before installing new firmware.

No... you don't 'need' to backup.

RE: 20141119 (1.0.7) - Open Hour Chameleon Android Firmware
Well, a follow up on my previous post on 1.0.7, seems that after about 30-40 minutes of near perfect play I start getting skipped frames in the video, which gets worse as time passes. Acts like a buffer over-run, stopping the movie, exiting SPMC, and restarting fixes it for another 30-40 minutes. I did not have this issue on 1.0.6 w/Kodi. So we have 2 steps forward and 1 step back. Not happy because I can't go back to the RC ver of KODI as it will not work in 1.0.7, and wiping everything and starting over from 1.0.5 is not appealing either.

*NOTE* Well, I was thinking about the buffer overflow and looked at my advancedsettings.xml where I had set the buffer size, and it was gone. I am wondering why the advancedsettings file and userdate folder was deleted during the update, as it is needed for smooth playback they should just change the default buffer size to 100MB, once I re-created the userdata folder and copied over the file the same video that had had the issue ran just fine. So if your dropped frames issue came back after the update that's the reason.

Good device on paper, bad software product-killer..


Why not explain what is the problems that u are facing?

Did you updated the device por the last version (1.0.7)?
did you updated the SPMC?

I know the frustration, because I have that frustration to, in plain 2014 with all the competitors out there how can some one like Popcorn now CloudMedia launch something like this to the costumers (pay to be a beta tester? have to come here and share problems to someone solve it?).
I only bought this because i'm a old costumer (Popcorn A-110), but if the quality of the product and the quality provided to the costumer doesn't change they will lose / continue to lose costumers.

1. Go to SYSTEM (SPMC) -> Video.
2. Go to bottom Settings level, press 2 times to toggle to "Expert".
3. Go up to Playback -> Set "Adjust display refresh rate to match video" to "Always".
4. If it does not work, then try to properly exit SPMC by going back to SPMC Home UI and exit button at the bottom. And re-launch SPMC.

Edit: will add above to wiki also. Thanks.

does not work for me.

Yet again lets keep on topic.

Keep firmware threads clear of off topic posts. Firmware version threads are for reporting experience of that version and any regression.

RE: 20141119 (1.0.7) - Open Hour Chameleon Android Firmware
I still have the static sound problem when i Pause a Movie in the internal player and MX Player and hit play again or if i rewind or Fast Forward.

I do not have that problem with Kodi when i Enable passthrough and Pause or rewind or Fast Forward a Movie.

Ow and i have static sound only if i Enable passthrough in SPMC.

Can try to change system language to any other language and change back to English (US)?
