Bug: X8 does not auto switch to 4:3

Post by Chris56 »

Current firmware: GTMedia_X8_Release_V285_20210908.zip
Connection over HDMI.
Some broadcasters send both 16:9 and old material in 4:3.
Aspect Ratio is set to auto, but the HDMI signal does not automatically switch to 4:3!
You have to manually force the TV set to use 4:3.

Is firmware V302 really the latest firmware for the X8??
It is dated 14th of December 2021 (!!).
Chris
P.S.: On the GT Media firmware site, you don't even find firmware for the X8

You can convert it to a V8X with a firmware, so you can use any firmware that corresponds to the V8X
