    Just installed the update on my Z2000Pro and the TrueHD Atmos picture stutter is still there. It's not as noticable during movie playback. When playing some atmos demo clips however, which are roughly 2 mins in lenght you can really spot it. It feels like the player doesn't have enough time to buffer the TrueHD track (just a hunch). Another example would be if I skip to the next chapter and it just doesnt stop stuttering unless I rewind it a little bit. Quick Edit: Read another post just now and I realised that this probably will take some more time to get fixed. Will post about other things if I happen to find some.

    my wishlist of fixes and functionalities

    . fix subtitle download recommendations, sometimes it just doesn't work at all
    . don't show subtitles while screensaver is on
    . add subtitle download from outside player, from movie detail page
    . add search for actors, results are not showing them
    . add actor view in player and jump to all movies with her / him
    . add actor pics in movie detail page
    . no pause sign pressing ok
    . prio low own screensaver (or more / other pictures ;)
    . smaller poster on theater homepage / start page (I have only one row 'watching' and one half row the 'widget', that's way to large) need 4 rows at least like in poster views with medium
    . show episode name in player
    . personalized keys: subtitle movement (or delay+-) with page +- keys
    . show all ratings - setting doesn't work I'm getting it on about 10% of the posters if turned on
    . pictures / posters for the watching row. I got only big grey boxes
    . give me an direct jump to my 4 main folders like movies, seasons, docs and concerts or whatever you have at home, I cannot add manually all content to categories and keep it updated
    . some grey subtitle colour's are not working it's still bright white for srt
    . from within a one season detail view jump to show with all seasons

    Add each main folder as a source and you have direct access.

    Having just had my Z2000 Pro for month or so, this is my first beta (which I need asap mainly to solve the SMB/NTFS bug). From past experiences by those of you who have been around longer, when should I expect it to come via OTA?

    It's not there now but I assume it will come since there is the option "Get the beta" in the Upgrade settings.

    It could take some time. Why not flash it manually? It's super easy.

    yes had that it was only hidden. thanks.

    . adding 2 series each with one season gives me 4 different pictures (instead of 2). episodes are spread between. i reported some weeks ago, the auto update is way to fast 200 gig are not copied in 3 seconds.

    how can I cumulate / bring together what belongs together? :)

    Thanks, but OTA is noticeably easier (and it's there for a reason after all). But if it is likely to take a while to get the beta published in that channel I will probably go the manual route.

    On a related note, are the final (non-beta) versions usually also made available with a delay via OTA vs manual download and install?

    My guess is that there will be no final version for a very long time, if ever.

    OTA is rarely used. If a public beta is officially released as a download here on the firmware it seldom then gets released OTA. The OTA server is sometimes used to target specific MAC addresses with test firmware.

    Public betas are occasionally promoted to a Release version and posted here (again, true OTA release is rather sporadic)

    A release version doesn't mean they're any more stable (generally public betas are stable enough...). The nature of constant development means there will never be a "final version".

    Bottom line, download and install from here.

    Just loaded 1.0.65 to my Z2600 and multi-channel DSD still does not play correctly. My AVP shows 5.1 Surround but only plays 2 channel and still has stuttering. Multi-channel FLAC is fine.
    When I have my resolution set to 1080/23 (not locked) and play The Last Waltz in DV, I get a lockup that required powering off via the rear switch. This is with the ISO or MKV versions. When I set the resolution to Auto it plays properly.

    Hi All, sorry for the silly question what does the G stand for in the download?

    Thank you for the new firmware for my Z20Pro.

    I tested briefly:
    HDR Mapping: Auto

    1. Samba now works.
    2. I have Samsung TV, so only HDR10/HDR10+ mode. When playing 4K mkv's with double layer DV/HDR10, HDR is now displayed correctly.
    Unfortunately with DV/HDR10+ DV is still output. And worse, when selecting the next chapter, the image freezes, the audio continues to play
    3. On all Full HD mkv's when selecting the next chapter the picture freezes, the audio continues to play.

    In the last two cases I always have to reset the playback to the beginning. Otherwise if there is no picture of this film.

    Its the version that contains the Google Play Store so you can install apps.

    Thanks! To manage expectations it's good to know that OTA is essentially only there for show and not really used "properly". Not good practice in this day and age though, imho. But it is what it is I guess.

    And by "final" I just meant exactly what I wrote, i.e. the non-beta "Release" versions, which have been through the Alpha and Beta phases (1.0.52 currently being the latest) :)

    Thanks again, every day is a learning opportunity ;)

    Still not working correctly

    MCH SACD .dsf 5.1 plays as stereo either ,normally via HDMI (Denon 3700h reports 2 ch PCM incoming) and same via USB audio out to Topping E50)
    Zidoo reports dsf file 6 ch DSD 64 outputting at 176khz so its partially correct(2 ch instead of 5.1

    Should be playing as 5.1 PCM which is what the earlier Z9X was doing before i ├╝pgraded ":p

    Least it seems stable now and not breaking up

    Well, untill i thought to check an Iso with both stereo and MCH
    That played MCH as stereo ,but was breaking up a lot ,Straight DSF file playback is fine ( for the couple songs i tried ,minus stereo ,not 5.1 pcm at 176khz

    Same iso file is playing with no issues ,while using USB Audio out to Topping E50 at correct 2 ch 2.82Mhz even with MCH set in Audio settings .... ie correctly doing 2 ch DSD for 2 ch USB Audio
