Changes since 200331_2121_r13:
This version is a minor update which only fixes regressions appeared in
the previous version 200331_2121_r13.

- Reverted the changes in auto framerate logic (which were introduced in
  the previous firmware version) for preferring video modes with higher
  framerate (such as 50Hz video modes for 25Hz content), because these
  changes cause problems when using TV's motion smoothing function, and
  because of some other problems with optimal handling of specific сases.

- Bugfix: Playback of audio files could unexpectedly stop in some cases.

  applications" menu), which provides access to Dune-HD.TV TV and VOD
  service (available in Russia only).

    which allows the plugin to specify the framerate of the media stream to
    be used by the autoframerate mechanism when the framerate detection
    built into the player does not work good for some reasons (currently
    needed and supported only on Amlogic models).
  - Improved handling of the case when a plugin shows a GUI dialog on
    "install" or "update" plugin actions.
  - Added files with the information about the firmware version which was
    installed on first boot or after settings reset:
