    For warranty cover/full support, stick to the one provided, as if anything goes wrong with the non-DroidBOX update offered, our bean counters might try to argue that it wasn't a procedure we said to follow.

    Not yet, I'll certainly post up as soon as I hear back regarding an ETA. I've sent a reminder.

    Just to let anybody who is following the trial of the alternative firmware i have now restored the original firmware on my T8 mini with the help of SS.
    I will try the OTA firmware update that is available at some point.
    Many thanks to SS for his assistance and support.

    Hi Silently Screaming
    If there is an OTA firmware update available can you please send me the either the update or the original files so I can update my box, I assume that the firmware update is what myself and Waggers trialled but a proper Droidbox version.
    Regards to all Pete

    Pete,
    There is a sticky at the start of this forum all about a firmware update. Not sure if this covers the 'fix' you experienced with that firmware we tried.
    Regards

    From my understanding at least, the OTA is unrelated to the test firmware you tried @PeteA , stick with what you have for now, we'll get the developers to check the differences and hopefully import the relevant parts to our own fw.

    I'll post back when I get more information regarding integrating the differences in that test firmware to our own one. Nothing yet.

    Hi SilentlyScreaming
    Any news on an update so that I can put my box back to a Droidbox One? as the current firmware has many problems that are becoming annoying.

    Regards Pete

    I've not had any updates specifically about this. There was a T8 Mini OTA update yesterday, but the changelog I've seen didn't mention it. Can you e-mail us and I'll chase the coders up to see whether anything at that level was included.

    Hi SilentlyScreaming
    Would it be possible for you to mail me the firmware so that I can return my box to a Droidbox, not worried about the 4k problem at the moment as nearly everything is still 1028p hd.
    Many regards and happy new year Pete.

    Hi SilentlyScreaming
    Please could you arrange for the correct Droidbox firmware to be mailed out to me so I can return my box to a Droidbox T8.
    Many regards Pete

    Poison85 - interesting you have curved Samsung UHD TV. As you may read earlier in this thread i also have similar and cannot get 4K on the display setting (1080p or 720 only) and hence not in Kodi either. As PeteA mentions this isnt a big issue as there is no or very little 4K content at the moment except Youtube.
    Droid support - is there any progress on identifying what my problem is (Tv model supplied earlier in this post). I have updated to latest firmware but no resolution of this issue.

    Hello Waggers,

    My TV model is UE55KU6670, my 4k issue was only with Kodi and after upgrade DBMC no more issue.

    On Samsung 4k TV's you may have to enable UHD colour for each input, in picture options. Not all inputs, depending on the model, will have this option.
