    Deinterlacing of videos don't work in Kodi 18.
    eg 1080i, 720x480i
    Please fix.

    Updated to FW 1.2.7, no glaring issue for a simple user, mouse experience in Launcher screen is smooth.

    Any chance with a zoom out option for the launcher screen for the next FW? Zoom out enough to see all the icons without scrolling left/right and up/down?

    Thanks!

    If I don't like the new FW-1.2.7, how can I get back to the old version firmware (stok firmware)?
    Where ROOT? :(
    Thanks.

    Some feedback:
    There are a few spelling mistakes:
    1. On the main settings page, under display, Screen is mis-spelled for both resolution and position (is written "Scrren")
    2. In the Media Centre, in the Settings section, "Refresh" appears as "Refreash" and "Favorites" is only "Favor"

    Media Centre
    1. The Media Centre plays back 3d Isos correctly (either in 3d or in 2d if you choose that) in frame packing
    2. If you choose a 3d MVC MKV (made with MakeMKV), it cannot play it back properly. If playing in 3d, it outputs to some weird picture where half the screen overlaps the other half (not SBS or TAB). If trying to play in 2D, then the picture is in 2D, however there are frequent random stutters. These play properly in other players (eg raspberry pi, on Windows with MVC builds of Kodi, Mede8er). I have a feeling that this issue is relating to the RKCodec as it is not only in the MEdia Center app, but also in ZDMC / RKMC / FTMC and there is the same issue on other Rockchip devices (I have another RK3328 device which has the same behaviour in RKMC / FTMC)
    3. Dolby True HD and DTS-HD files, while they play, the audio has frequent dropouts (where if you choose the Dolby Digital or DTS track, there is no problem playing audio). Note that this is also a problem on ZDMC / RKMC / FTMC so is probably also related to the RKCodec

    ZDMC
    1. As per above, 3d MVC MKV files (created with MakeMKV) do not play properly in either 3d or 2D
    2. As per above, Dolby True HD and DTS-HD files play, but with frequent dropouts
    3. VC-1 files do not play with hardware acceleration, so just stutter a lot (is unwatchable). This is also the same on RKMC / FTMC. Same file plays fine in Media Center without issue

    Wrapper
    - Is there any chance you could create a wrapper so that we can use Kodi as the front end, and then use the Media Center (which has better video playback) to play back videos?
    - I tried to do this with playercorefactory.xml in kodi, but I don't know what the app name is for Media Center to use (there was a guide for other Zidoo players, but that requires root, which we don't have).

    Custom icons
    - It appears that with this update, any shortcuts that the user has put on the desktop are forgotten on reboot

    Happy to help out with testing if you would like

    package="com.rockchips.mediacenter"
    "activity name"="com.rockchips.mediacenter.videoplayer.VideoPlayerActivity"
    Can this help you?

    Custom icons

    First deal with this, the next version will fix the problem

    Unfortunately playercorefactory doesn't work with the media center for some reason.
    Is there a plan to include root access ?

    Yes
    But root box may take some more time.

    Hi

    There is also another small issue. When you return from a standby mode, the date and time will not update.

    For example if I shutdown my TV at 1 PM and turn it back on at 11 PM, that time will still be 1 PM and it will not adjust unless you reboot the box.

    Kindly fix this in the next FW.

    Thank you!

    I need to flash a clean image on the X7 to get rid of do-do left behind from some play-store apps, is there a clean img for the X7?

    Thanks
