WeTek Core (24p HD Netflix / HD Audio / Lollipop / OpenELEC / 4K / HEVC)

@BORIStheBLADE and @wesk05, I've done all tests only on Android OS so far. Re: HD audio, in included Kodi 15.2, I have passthrough enabled, with DD and DTS enabled below it. There are no DTS-HD and TrueHD options, which is why I was surprised to get multichannel PCM. I played TrueHD, DTS-MA and LPCM 7.1 clips/movie segments, and same results with all. Works, but rear and side channels are swapped, there's no center at all (so, you can't hear dialogue) and there's no sub. Basically, when playing the 7.1 HD audio channel check clips, could clearly tell, but those channels that did work, AQ was excellent. The LPCM swapped/missing channels issue should be fixable by WeTek, or if AML gets HD audio passthrough licensing for S8xx, then bitstreamed.

@wesk05, re: the Jellyfish test clips, I realize they're H.264, but if Core can handle those really high bitrates (it didn't break a sweat with 137Mbps+), I'm guessing it'll be able to handle close to that with H.265/HEVC encoded videos. The Core is easily the best AML S812 box I've tested. I've never owned Minix X8-series, but did have S812 samples like Probox2 EX, UBOX and MXIII. All underwhelming.

@actpower, I have plenty of true 23.976 videos, and will test a movie for at least 30-45mins and report back. I do notice microstutters on boxes that only have 24.000 or some weird variant of 23.976. I believe Core, like other AML boxes, does close to 23.976, but maybe not to the thousandth or ten-thousandth decimal? That may be splitting hairs. Anyway, will check with actual playback.

@ChristianTroy, would it possible to have Netflix pre-installed similar to Kodi? Netflix HD is obviously a key selling point of the Core.

Re: the Harmony remote talk, I'd encourage WeTek to at least support Harmony One Ultimate/Smart via Bluetooth, and ideally by extending the functionality of the in-built IR via firmware for full functionality (so, Harmony 650, 700, etc. can also be used).

Thanks for the info and for your time testing.
