Thanks Joe and daflyboys. I installed version 1.0.0 manually on top of the 0.0.5. That solved the majority of the issues. I uninstalled the blue logo version altogether, I still don't get what that's for! Anyhow, regarding the offending addons mentioned above, I installed them manually from zip and that worked fine.
I have one last question if I may. I have installed Hotspot Shield Elite on the box, because I want to access NBCSports Extra addon for Saturday footie in UK. This is a free addon and it does not infringe any copyrights in UK or the in fact in any of the EU countries. The reason you need VPN or DNS of some sort is because this addon is available in USA only. Now Hotspot Shield starts ok and I get connection status as OK to USA server. However the NBCSports Extra addon stream do not work, which is baffling me somewhat. I have this VPN installed on my Nexus 7 and MacBook pro and it works a charm. Any ideas?
Thanks again for your help
