When are you going to fix 23.976fps video on 1080p-60Hz in Rockchip native player,
because that's more important to me and a lot of other people.


And thank you Cloud Media/Rockchip for the fast Firmware updates and fixes, never seen a Android TV BOX that
do so fast Firmware updates/Fixes.

Again thanks.

RE: 20150109 (1.0.11) - Beta Open Hour Chameleon Android Firmware
I confirm the stuttering at 24p is gone but I have to manually switch the video format from the default 60p (Auto)
If I remember well there was in one of the previous firmware update a menu voice in Advanced Settings/Display named "Open Cinema" (or something like this) and when this option was set the right framerate was automatically choosen.
In the later updates this option disappeared so the refresh rate is the same as the default panel menu.
Is it possible to re-enable this option in the next firmware release?
Anyway I am really really happy with this beta release, it was about time this 24p issue was fixed! Well done! :-)

Good grief NO!

It's up to us OHC owners to install and update what _we_ want and don't need a player we might not want to use - or even worse any gaming stuff.

The base storage available is that thin - the last job we should have to do when we get a new image is to get rid of overhead we don't need and we don't want - or probably risk failed updates because there is not enough main storage available (due to this wonderful Rockchip "partitioning").

Thankfully, OH made the validation for the Google Play store (or is using dev keys...) - this does permit to install and keep updated what we want from the mainstream. Koying does always push SPMC to Play within reasonable time.

No bloatware, and no unsolicited overhead please!

Vidon box has this issue. Bloated with software which Ill never use.

Perhaps sponsorship.

Y'know, I think, I think that a week from now, you'll be less in the mood for being amusing.

Because some people will say 'your product even comes with SPMC installed so you are responsible for fixing it' perhaps Tongue

Basic firmware install please. This is reminding me of IE coming with Windows.Big Grin

I must be in the 10%. I'm not interested in either SPMC or XBMC. I want to use Plex as my interface. I'm sure I'm not alone and I do not want either built in thanks.
