Known Bugs
We are aware of the following important issues and actively working to resolve them ASAP:
1. Automatic Refresh Rate Switch is missing
2. Certain formats not working correctly via HD audio pass-through
We shall release regular firmware updates to address these issues, along with other bugs that are discovered.

Unfortunately, the patch to make CoreELEC bootable from USB 3.0 ports is missing from 003FW OTA firmware update.
We will add the patch to NEO U22-XJ’s next OTA firmware update.
If you wish to boot from USB 3.0 ports now, you’ll need to manually install the firmware.
Alternatively, if you wish to use CoreELEC but don’t want to manually install the firmware, CoreELEC can be booted from the USB-C port using the OTA firmware version.
