Experimental: Add Samba Client manual input
Note: samba link will be added under the main share like a shortcut. Function is not validated nor approved nor really functional yet. Very experimental.
- New: Support for MicroDVD .sub subtitle files

Find the new functions under the setup, advanced settings menu.
Because the function is kewl:
Fix Shoutcast issue (error 301 solved)
Improve the performance for Youtube
New: Support DTS/AC3/WMA/AAC S/PDIF setting in the Setup menu (S/PDIF RAW or PCM)
Music (OGG/FLAC Audio) is selected automatically for PCM
Released to beta-testers
Update: I got some good feedback today where some beta testers report that they cannot alter any setting in the Audio Menu and have as a result of this no output to their amplifier anymore. This kind of feedback is very very welcome !
Update 2: it’s confirmed that in some circumstances the audio options are greyed out. This is fixed in a next firmware release. A workaround for now is to reset the device to factory defaults.

Above release notes is for v1.14.04

The upcoming beta release of the CFULLHDMA has HDMI Auto Sync.
This means following: if you have a TV supporting EDID you see the available resolutions of your TV. When playing video the CFULLHDMA will detect what is the frame rate and will adjust the screen resolution accordingly.
In above image you see the resolution at 60Hz. We start a movie with 24Hz and than we get the folowing resolution seen on the TV
(you will see the loading icon, the screen will adjust, loading icon will disappear, than re-appear and the TV will show th 24hz)
As seen in the image below
