    " New Firmware Pushed and Nightmare Resumes. After six months of problems Firmware 8.0 was pushed to my Ultra. Now I have severe audio drops when watching Netflix. I'm back to using Nvidia Shield in the exact same setup with no problems. I’m very disappointed with the device and even more so with the company. At first it worked great but often got very hot and when that happened it would reboot by itself. I raised it on four, half inch rubber feet, and it now runs cooler and that problem was solved. The UHD HDR was spectacular with my 65” LG OLED TV. I am, or wanted to, use this rather than the LG built in Apps as I’m feeding into a 4K 60p 4:4:4 Integra Receiver and using a Roku with the Harmony Elite so it’s much easier than having to use the LG Remote."
