    Thanks. It seems to be down to file naming. If I call the file "3D.SBS", it's shows as 3D. If I take away the SBS tag, it says it's 1080p. Very strange.

    There doesn't seem to be anything in the log zip where it shows what the file has (like mediainfo output).

    Anyway... problem fixed.

    Please provide a sample file. I think, these are 10 bit H.264 files.

    Can't easily provide a sample, but here is the full video report from mediainfo for one of the files. I've removed some duplicate lines:

    I'm getting very choppy playback on my s905X Q-box.

    LibreElec has run from an SD card, and the files are being played back over wired LAN (source is on a NAS)

    The files are :

    Should these all play without issue?

    I have a small issue with the auto-update process. I have a 905X box, but the 912 upgrade package is downloading to .update and of course failing during the upgrade process. Is there any easy fix to this? Apologies for the newb question.

    After manually replacing the file with the latest version, it seems to worked fine. Strangely the previous download was titled 905X, but the size was different.

    I seem to be a little stuck...

    I have three USB drives currently conneted to a powered USB 3.0 hub plugged into a PopcornHour A400, and LibreElec 8.0.2 running off an SD card in my Q box. This combination is working fine. (I have the PCH for 3D support).

    When I upgrade to 8.1.9, I can no longer access samba shares on my PCH - since it is not possible to set passwords on the PCH shares. I can't seem to get around this. If I try NFS shares on the PCH, I can't see the shares remotely either.

    If I connect my USB hub to the Q box, I can't see any drives, but if I connect a single USB drive to the port at the back, I can see it. My hub connected drives are a mix of NTFS and ext3.

    I would really like to upgrade, but at the moment, I'm stuck with 8.0.2 and the odd connectivity methodology. Any ideas anyone?


    I'm trying to access a samba share on my popcornhour, but since upgrading from 8.0.5 to 8.1.7 this is no longer working (persistently requests a password). The share doesn't have a specific password - and I can't set one. Is there anything I can set in 8.1.x to allow it to still connect?
