    After this update,

     

    1. My mini remains on 1280X720 whatever I change it to 1920X1080.

    2. Display blinks randomly(especially when I click something like app drawer button).

    3. Not sure related to the update, Play Movie streaming is very unstable (stop frequently), but on my smartphone with same network it plays very smooth.

    1. Remix Mini currently does not supports 4K.

    2. We do suggest you to use a HDMI cable.

    3. Google Play Movie App has been reported to our engineering team. They will take care of this issue.

    May I ask which keyboard are you referring?

    @Cameron :

    I use a logitech french keyboard

    It works everywhere. but in web pages displayed in Firefox. It works in Firefox's adress bar, but not in web pages (form input fields).

    Firefox works everywhere else! That is any other computer / smartphone with Android (lollipop and kitkat).

     

    A previous update, in December 2015, had already showed this problem. I solved it by unistalling/reinstalling Firefox. That doesn't solve the problem this time.

    I use 1920*1080 with Hdmi monitor without any other problem since November 2015.

    Does this issue remains in both Mobile and Fullscreen Mode? May I also ask the Make and Model of your monitor please? We will test it and share it with the rest of Remix Community.

    It does happen in any "mode".

    My monitor is an HP 22CW full hdmi compatible.

    I already signaled the problem on this site here: http://support.jide.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/207879547-Unable-to-type-anything-in-any-websites-when-using-Firefox?page=1#community_comment_210790087 

    I have no serious clue but at that moment some "improvements" were made, by Remix, to support japanese keyboards...

    So here are 2 screen shots.

    a- in mobile view

    b- in full screen computer view 

    Note that:

    1-the Esc key works normally,

    2-clicking in the form input field is unrolling previous searches as if Firefox was aware that I am attempting to type something in it, but I can't get to the list below the field with the keyboard, I can select something with the mouse however. CR doesn't launch anything like a search.

    3-any key (char, number, CR) doesn't do anything.

    Just to add about the keyboard I use and how it is configured now:

    If this issue ONLY happens in FireFox, it is a normal issue which is happening crossing different devices. There is not an one-fit-all answer as it heavily depends on the device you are using. Listed are some findings I gathered from a google search. Does any of them works?

    Your probably right: I am just using Firefox now and typing this answer after having deinstalled and reinstalled it again (4th time now). The real difference is that I have not yet sync my firefox account...

    There seems to be a thread about this here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1091535

    Is that thread offers a viable solution?

     So, for now, I had problems after allowing Firefox sync. This is reproductible.

    However, it only happens with Remix mini...

    It could be linked and apparently happened with Chrome os and Chrome browser. I will try further but suspect various incompatibilities between browsers and Android/Chrome Os about handling keyboard events.

    But I can't see rename option for shortcut on desktop 

    This rename option should work after 2.0.104 ,  right ?

     

    How could I fix it ? thanks~

    Hi guys,

    Why is Google Play Music still so bugsy? I mean, with this update I can open it, listen to music and even cast it to my Chromecast device. But sometimes the music doesn't play at all, sometimes a playing music stops and sometimes it is played some noises with the music (just like an interference or such).

    My HDMI cable and all of the connections are good. At least it doesn't happen with Youtube or another app which uses audio. The same issue happens on HDMI or Headphones.

    Despite of that I like Remix Mini very much and so the Remix OS.

     

    Thanks!

    I cannot update from 2.0.111 no matter what I do. I have followed directions from help forum, reset device several times, tried auto and manual, and all I get is message saying I have the current version, which I clearly do not. Time, day, month, year all correct, auto time turned off, no update folder in file manager. Is there a link for a direct download? Also, I cannot find where to register product with Jide for warranty,notification purposes. Could not sign in with email I used initially, but was finally able to sign into forums using "sign in with google". Help? ThanksReally want to be up to date, and explore/setup this awesome little beast!
