Any chance of getting the libmedia.so included in all the kasty ROM for minix devices, I can send the file as this would allow a rooted patch for all the neo devices x7 x5 both mini 7 and mini 5 ICANN get a copy of it for you or you can grab at http://minixforums.com/threads/how-to-get-ac3-and-dts-passthrough-in-xbmc-hdmi-and-spdif.2041/page-5

scooter2013, 

I'm having a look to add this custom libmedia.so as an ArcTools package.

Cheers.

No worries Wink

I am wondering about libmedia.so library compatibility, do you happen to know with which other MiniPC it could or was verified to work ? 

Cheers.

http://minixforums.com/threads/how-to-get-ac3-and-dts-pass-through-in-xbmc-hdmi-and-spdif.2071/

Neo7

 

I don't what the build differences are but 4.2.2 is the one for the last update for neo 5 this also works ion minix same for x7 mini with the x7 libmedia.so. Strafstom knows more about the builds but I know each has thier own. I think it is hardware orientated as it really screws up machine when running xbmc,if you use wrong one. But I hope it can modified to use in others.

Let me know if you need more info?

 

 

Thanks again from Minix forum!
