Did you try rebooting after the update? Some people on the 855c thread said they didn't get the full functionality of the android apps after they were updated until they did a reboot.
Does 'reboot' mean to cycle the power... or something more severe?

Edit: I didn't realize this was already addressed.

No I'd have no use for USB. I'd just play files over the network if I had downloaded them. You got Amazon 4K to work? How?
Hey... Tell me how to play files over the Network after I've downloaded them. I would much rather do that than to mess with the external hard drive.

Is the APP 2ch sound Sony 930/940 specific, or can other makers APPS like Samsung, LG, etc. do 5.1 surround via APP?
Yes they do 5.1 confirmed Samsung.

I have that one it's pretty good and some others including Samsung,Sony and other demo packs some can even make you drool on a good 1080P set when you downscale them in a PC .
The most drool worthy demo loop is the Changhong TV 4K demo if don't have the link already they can be found here : Use your browser translator here it's in Klingon > > http://demo-uhd3d.com/
Downloading now. 3.45 GB for a 5 minute demo. Incredible!

Heckfire. I remember back in my day....

Well got it downloaded and put on ext. HD w/ usb. It played for about 10 seconds and then said "Unsupported Format". I have played 7 or 8 from the HD. It seems the 940c likes .mp4 files. However Changhong is an mp4, but, only plays for 10 seconds. Seems like the file is corrupt. But it was a zipped file that was opened and copied to the HD. So, a corrupted file doesn't seem likely. Seems more likely the Android video player in the 940c. And once the 940c cannot play a file, it has a difficult time recovering.

It'll get sorted. Hopefully sooner than later.

It is a hevc codec H.264 MP4 file

try the HEVC file (which is H.265 MP4)

Astra - Satellite demo (HEVC) http://demo-uhd3d.com/categorie.php?tag=hevc

If it can't play these then set does not have proper HEVC codecs yet. I was looking for HEVC playback compatibility in specs but only mention of MP4 which is fague H.264, Full HEVC H.265 MP4 :confused:

Download and test AStra -Satellite demo HEVC as it is 14 mins and is 10 bits 420 just like 4k blu ray colours are incredible and is a good showcase of any good sets capabilities I highly recommend the download http://demo-uhd3d.com/categorie.php?tag=hevc

It appears to be an Android issue. People are reporting that the Android is only outputting 2ch sound. I am sure it is something that will be fixed in a future software update.

The Astra demo was amazing. The colors were spectacular. Really great clarity and no artifacts considering it was only 1.5 gb. Thanks for the recommendation.
