If you think it's not then start a new thread and compile the issue list.

Some focus on problems and faults others on solutions and success... no question who is the happy one.

Looking forward to trying the Samba remember me option, lets hope it remembers the list of server/clients as well as the login details. Kind of a bookmark setup like in Solid Explorer.

Let's get a thread going if there isn't one already. Include a test file that shows the issue and also test internal and external and different formats of subs.

It's not in the changelog so I would not expect it to be any different from previous firmwares. Get enough to confirm and we can get it either added to Known Issues or as has been the case with some issues it fixed in the next release. Happy to test.

RE: 20150213 (1.0.13) - Open Hour Chameleon Android Firmware
It may be fixed depending on how you interpret the changelog.

I have a selection of file types (avi, mkv, bd iso, etc.) and both internal (mkv and iso use this method usually) and external (usually with avi or srt subs) to test with.

Now that the native player has autoframerate sync it makes using it more practical. Although as it doesn't downmix its really for those with receivers or even soundbars as you need to passthrough the audio for it to be decoded. Us direct to TV guys only get audio on many audio types.

RE: 20150213 (1.0.13) - Open Hour Chameleon Android Firmware
You're losing me i thought we were discussing subtitles not turning off. Are you now talking about audio track switching or are you playing direct and have no decoding in mxplayer for the likes of truehd etc. and it's only decoding the stereo commentary track.

This is why you need to get into more detail on hardware, software, mediainfo, etc.

*NO AUDIO*
I installed this update twice thinking the install was bad. But I get no audio on any setting, tried the internal player, Wasser KODI and SPMC. Switch cards back to .11 and audio works fine. Nothing I have tried will get the audio working with .13. Someone else try and see what you get. So glad I put this on my test card and not the working one.
