I suggest to make this test:

1) Install android assistant (18 features) and kill all the background applications.
2) Run andrid assitant again and check the running app and CPU IDLE (should be more than 85%)
2) Open YOUTUBE
3) Play a Video
4) If sound problems persist I would check HDMI cable /cable connection to TV

@HardcoreHacker: Thank you for your reply. I can't check it right now because I don't have any other sd card. Anyway if I had a different model can I root it?

i started using the device regularly and i have to say version 1.3 works Great, but i found few problems with playing video.

 the video player has problems with the hardware video accelerations :
    - it will not play *.flv files correctly, i have only sound with no video. playing with software acceleration works ok
   - it will mess the subtitles it other languages than English (hebrew in my case) - it shows a second line of translation in chines characters.  i was able to solve it by playing with the Tools->options menu.
   - some movie are played with the sound volume (of the player) to the minimum level,made me think that there is a problem with the voice, until i managed to learn to use the mouse gesture to raise the volume.
 
another problem i have with the tvshell bottom menu - it refuses to load videos or music from the sdcard. i managed to play them by using the file browser.

i hope this helps.

I just got a brand new Sandisk Ultra 8GB card, unpack firmware and it's works great :)! The only problem is in MX Player. When I try to play .avi with .str subtitles application won't show them. I've checked all of the settings and still can't solve it :/. Could you help me?

Wanted to start off by saying thanks to HCH for the great rom. The functionality of my tvbox has improved dramatically.

I wanted to know if anyone else was having problems running any dlna/upnp programs that allow remote control?

Such as Twonky, aVia, or any version of allshare. The only program I have been able to run successfully and consistently is Eyecon. All the others either force close or only partially function if at all. I've been trying to find a decent client that allows me to "push" videos to it from a media server on my network via my phone, and then subsequently control it from my phone from that point on. Twonky will usually run right after it has been installed but then won't run again unless it has been killed from the task manager and this trick only works some times. aVia will start and see server but never shows up as a player on any other device. Any version of allshare I've tried fc's as soon as its services try to startup. Plugplayer, skifta,  fc's just like allshare. Arkmc, and Bubbleupnp can't be controlled remotely when playing avi videos.

Just wondering if others are having the same issues as I am or what works for you.

Folks, has anyone been able to install the XBMC APK onto the E66 box? That's the reason I bought this box, but it won't install - just errors with a Parse error.  :'(

About Market app:

App that market tell me "not compatible with yor device" or I can not see on a search:

1) Google Maps
2) Antutu Benchmark
3) Temple run (game)
4) 100 Doors (game)

I have no problem to get this app on the web and then install them as an installation package "APK"

Cheer
Albert

Hi Albert, how dow you download the apk via web without downloading via the market/google play ?

Thanks in advance

Hi master HCH,
   I've installed the new rom, so i've notice that you replace the stock player by MX Player, very cooool...but the chinesse subtitle steel remains in the backgroud....it's controlled via android api, or something similar? is this possible ?

Thanks for all your work

Elboya:
I have a trick that usually works:
1) first I download and install app on my VIA 8650 tablet that is full market
2) Then I make back-up with Android Assistant (18 feauteres)
       (It creates a folder "android assistant backup files" with all aplication backups with APK extension)
3) Then copy the app------.apk to the SD card and insert it on E66
4) Then I install the "app---.APK" from SD and works

I expect works for you

I had the same problem.  you can remove those chines subtitles by using software video acceleration instead of hardware (you have option in MXPlayer) but then you get crappy picture quelity.
there is also a way to dismiss this hardware subtitles by changing configuration in the  MXPlayer. ill try to find again this option and write it here.

Dear HCH,
Thanks for your hard work for make this TV Box more enjoyable. I installed SWFPlayer.  It needs Adobe flash player in order to run.  However, it says Adobe flash player is not found.   I tried to install Adobe flash player from Google Play, but it says it is not compatible with the device. 

I want to use this TV box to play SWF animation for the kids.  Will be very appreciated if you can help .  Thanks!:)

you need to find a compatible flash...the box is supposd to have 10.1 LITE installed .. so probably 10.1 is the only one that will work .. i thik the one on market is not supported by the architecture ..

Hey bingooh,

Flash? Yes initially it was in the Uberoid version of the E66 ROM but eventually I decided to delete it, it didn't perform well and caused even some crashes! This device isn't ARMv7 so Adobe doesn't support it fully... however, I can have another look at getting flash player to run properly on this device if you like!

Hi guys,

I just flashed this ROM and it runs faster than stock! However, I can't seem to play any embedded flash videos from any browser. I tried installing Firefox, Dolphin... they don't show any embedded flash videos from any sites. Is there anything I did wrong or is Flash player not working in this ROm? thanks
