our China (systems) team is coming back to office from today (about half of them)! Although the danger hasn’t passed yet… let’s wish for everyone’s well being.
Today we’ve made a quick software update with a couple of the most pressing issues that were possible to solve in a day, mostly focusing on keystone instability:
#10. Rename “Horizontal Correction” inside keystone settings to “Calibration”
#11. Don’t run automatic calibration when keystone is enabled
#23. Automatic keystone correction happens too often even when projector is not moving — this causes momentary stutter in playback.
#24. SD card is reformatted when doing factory reset
And a couple of improvements:
better thermal stability on battery, avoid unnecessary power off
better touchpad sensitivity specially multitouch (scrolling)
The team has a lot of work ahead. We plan to increase our update frequency to once per week.
The focus for the next (v1.0.27) is on these high priority issues:
#6. Internal android brightness/contrast settings are not the same as HDMI
#9. Text too small, Android UI should be scaled to 2x HiDPI
#31. Apps randomly return to home screen
[ ] #12. Manual keystone adjustment feature moved for later
#18. Netflix crashes when playing certain videos
#28. Kodi not using hardware acceleration
There are ~20 other issues but the above is the focus for next update. I will keep you all posted.
Note: this is only about the engineering office, not about production factories. We will provide more info about factory opening schedule as soon as we have it.
