    All of a sudden, the front display on my Z1000 Pro started working again after a week of being dead. Absolutely crazy! Is this definitely a connector issue?

    And another question, where do we report software bugs and ask for fixes? Thanks

    Probably is a connection issue.

    In the correlated FW threat for general reporting for a certain FW version or a dedicated new topic for complicated matters.

    Hi! I live in Brazil and around here there are not many people who like or understand this subject. In your authoritative opinion, which Media Player should I buy? My objective is to watch bluray movies with dolby vision (very important!) and 3D movies with the best quality possible, besides having access to blurays menus.
    I think it's important too the possibility of menu and download of srt subtitles in Portuguese. I can't go wrong, because these "toys" are extremely expensive and my wife is already mad at me.

    I hope you wife really likes watching movies. :D

    I can recommend getting a Zidoo Z9X or a Dune Real Vision for that. Both will do the job you describe. The Dune will do far better BD Menu handling and Zidoo will be more advanced on Subtitle support (with and without menus) and also on Poster Wall features. I expect both to actually improve on their respective weaknesses but both are amazing players with great value for money (even with Brazilian taxes). :)

    Zidoo Z9X is AU$285, very cheap!

    Futeko haven't dropped their prices yet

    I have a lot of Dolby Vision movies and my Zidoo X10 doesn't suit me in this regard. I thought the Zidoo Z1000 Pro was superior to the Zidoo Z9X. But as the Z9X is cheaper I think I'll go with the Z9X then. Thanks!

    The Z1000 has a much nicer chassis, looks great, has a HDD bay, Integrated 12V 5A PSU, 32 Gbyte Flash, Internal antenna's and a BT remote.
    But having the same motherboard the essential features, SQ and PQ will be identical. It is worth the extra money if you can effort it.

    Excuse the ignorance, but what is SQ and PQ?

    SQ = Sound Quality
    PQ = Picture Quality

    ub820 has chroma upsampling. vincent @ hdtvtest thinks its a little better than oppo 203 (just as a ref). how much difference will also depend on ur eyes, tv, etc.

    Watch out, there are still a lot of Z1000 units out there, those have the old chipset.

    As far as i can see that IS the previous one with Realtek RTD1296 chipset and NO Dolby Vision

    Make sure you buy the Z1000 Pro

    A good place to start

    You may be correct, I didn't pay attention to the chipset detail. Grateful for the alert ;)

    Aliexpress have great deals at the moment, need to make sure you apply the discount codes at checkout though

    Z9X $287AUD

    Z10X $429AUD

    Z1000 Pro $617AUD

    Still can't make up my mind which one though, the Z9X is so cheap, just can't decide if the internal hdd bay is worth the extra cash, I don't have a NAS or DAS, just one external 14Tb hdd that I will shuck if I get the 10x or 1000 pro. Will most probably eventually buy a DAS no matter which one I end up with.
    Maybe I should buy the Z9X and use the cash I save for a DAS and an extra 14tb hdd

    Any thoughts to help me make my decision?
