Corey, thank you so much for sharing your developments!

Some questions:
-Have you been able to test audio out through SPDIF?
-Is internet streaming working for you?
-Is there a work-around for changing the network settings?
-Will a DHCP ethernet connection set itself up properly?

there is one problem. Fading 720 video and 1080, helps to rewind, but after a while the video freezes again, and the sound keeps going.

This could be a box specific issue because mine is working fine with streaming and playing local 1080p and 720p videos.

Witch box do you use, hdmi or A/V with or without spdif, are videos local or streamed(addon name), is your board g18ref or mx2ref?.

with that information i will work to fix issues with the model of box you have so please let me know and if possible capture xbmc and dmesg logs send them via PM.
