Just received the Himedia A5 S912 Octa-Core and i am very impressed with it so far most the issue i had with the Minix U9 works much better on the Himedia A5.
I have only one UHD ISO file - Playback sucks
Ripped .mkv is playing smooth.
Don't have any issue playing UHD ISO on Nvidia Shield, there should be a way to fix it as this a very solid media player.
This my results from testing...Code

I think the issue is playing ISO UHD files..
I am also going run this test on my Minix and see where the problem is coming from.
run ethtool eth0 via ssh and look if duplex & speed are OK
Hope this helps..
Well is sounds like only NFS share is supported with this device,
Attaching a Hard drive the player is not a solution, most of the people use SMB share, i have not issue playing from other players should be the same with this one.
Is there a way mount the Network Drive ?
There should be a solution to this issue.
There were first releases of Leia builds for S912 only.
After, as you can read on 1st page of your link "This thread was merged to [8.90.x] LibreELEC 9.0 Alpha for S905/S912/LePotato"
There were LE 8.90.0-8.90.6
Newest releases are started from CE 8.90.0
Where can i get 8.90.06?
Welcome to my nightmare..
Using Leia Build on my Minix U9 S912 and movies and even the browser menu looks very dark compare to my Nvidia Sheild.
Having the same issue with Minix U9-H but in my case i am using wired network, when i disable the Audio pass-through, 4k video plays fine without any issue.
I am scratching my head since the device is 1G speed, i am also using SMB share from LibreElec.
Thank you guys for all the help, now time for me to incorporate it.
Do you have Harmony Hub? Add Microsoft Kodi as device. Turn Bluetooth on Neo on and pair with your Harmony Hub. Then you will have a lot of extra commands.
Thanks, going to try that.
Just purchase the Minix Neo UH9 and i can figure out how to get the PLAY ; PAUSE : STOP :INFO and CONTEXT MENU to work, can anyone help me with that?
I have the MECOOL M8S PRO (but not the L) 3GB DDR4, 16GB eMMC with Android 7.1.
Installed this community build [188.8.131.52] LibreELEC 8.2 for S912 with the relevant Device tree copied to root of SD card.
Can confirm the following works:
Auto Dynamic range
Auto Color Space
Havent tested wireless as I use Ethernet (however, both my 2.4 and 5ghz show up under "Network".
Havent tried turning it off with remote (I tend to leave it on)
Does it support 4K HDR ISO playback?
