    Bugs don't happen to everybody and I have had this problem for the last 3 firmwares. There is also a difference in the way it handles user-made collections and automatic collections.

    I have the same problem the back button does not change anything, you have to restart the film, it's very annoying

    I haven't tried the latest firmware yet but can someone from the development team tell us if it is possible to make a manual rescan option for each title in HT4? I had this problem since X9S and it's still a problem with the Z9X.

    I have a title for example in 1080p and replace the file with a new 4K HDR version. In HT4 it will not update the tags unless I use a different filename in order to force HT4 to rescan. Adding a manual scan option for everytime we make some change would be amazing than having to use different file names all the time.

    Also it would be great to be able to manually edit the tags for each title. For example after the initial scan to be able to add or delete tags like 4K, HDR, Atmos, DTS etc etc.

    Is this possible?

    Did you already try a complete reset? Because now I always do that at each new FW release and then proceed with a couple of reboot also switching the unit completly off and on. A few days ago I had a random issue of 24fps mkv contents starting sometimes at 60fps and doing so totally solved it...

    It's definitely possible and I agree it's absolutely vital - I brought this up a while ago in a bug report but it has yet to be fixed.

    Unfortunately, as I've said many times, database housekeeping is very haphazard with HT - even if you delete a title and then rematch, the previous data is retained and reused on a rematch. After a period of time the database becomes very messy with unwanted and unused entries.

    I use local info when scanning - NFOs, artwork and trailers so every now and again I reset the database and rescan from scratch but you have to be very careful when doing this to make sure everything is in order so that the posters etc all return exactly as previously. But if you get it right, it's quite a fast process - but you shouldn't need to do this - the database should take care of itself.

    Badges like 4K and HDR are gathered by mediainfo when playing a file so theoretically they would always be correct if rematching worked properly and reset the database entries correctly.

    Atmos, DTS badges etc are only applied from the use of suffixes, so you do have complete control over that by changing the filename suffixes to match the content.

    I have just finished watching "A Quiet Place 2" in Dolby Vision from an mkv file I myself did with MakeMKV from the BD 4K ISO file. I noticed several color glitches (that appear and then disappear by pausing, going back and playing again) and also a couple of green screens (always in the same frames). Is it just me with this DV title or could it be an issue of the FW? Anyone else noticed anything strange with DV movies?
    Yesterday evening I watched an HDR10 movie and everything was fine...

    Did you try playing the full BD as a comparison? I have created my own MKV using latest MakeMKV but not watched it yet. If you can give me any time codes as an example I can see if I get the same issues.

    Yes i have same problem just watched part 2 and no this is not the same problem that oliverQC mentions, this is different never seen this before. Almost like its switching from HDR to SDR and back again and if you rewind will look ok. Until the next glitch the title credits at the end is a perfect example.

    I speak in general for the green flash,

    for ''A quiet place part 2'', I will watch it with this new FW tonight to see if I have the same problems as you and I give you news.

    I have spot checked both the full movie ISO and my own MakeMKV remux. Apart from the known and for me occasional green flash when skipping back I don't see any other issues.

    When you say the title credits is a perfect example what do you mean? The credits are just scrolling text on a black background. Maybe post a video of what you see?

    The credits kind of flashes, you need to watch the movie from start to finish because does not appear straight away. within 30mins you should see the problem occur.

    I am using a Panasonic GZ950 and the zidoo is set to TV led for the HDR, This was not an issue with previous firmware

    I just finished the movie and I did not notice anything wrong, I only have the ISO version.

    Exactly! This is what happens to me too! Yes, you are right it happened to me during the end credits too, but it occured randomly also in several other moments. And I also got the green flashes that I've never seen before with previous FWs (before 6.3.20)

    I am using Player led and VS10 for Dolby Vision... but I also tried TV led and "Auto" for the HDR settings... nothing changed

    The problem is you can't spot check, but really need to watch because these "glitches" happen randomly. If you stop and play the same sequence again, the issue won't be there again

    Not even the green flashes? I will have to watch the ISO too and check then! ;)

    I've been seeing green flashes for about 6 firmwares. but it depends on the movie and only happens with Dolby Vision titles. Really annoying!

    Glad its not just me, maybe just a MKV problem will be interesting to see if duplicated on other movies with DV MKV, oh and never seen green flashes just really awful colour rainbows difficult to describe. The scene towards the end when they get out of the boat on the island was horrendous.

    I managed to do some quick testing before going to work. With the mkv file of "A Quiet Place 2" in DV I always have a green flash at 1h02m44s (as example, if you want to check too). Regarding the strange "color glitches" this time I saw one at 3m24s when he starts cutting the orange. But once again I went back and playbacked again and it looked fine.... so it's really random... my only doubt is that "Forced subtitles" could be triggering the issue during a complete playback (but it is really just a personal assumption at the moment).
    I also gave a quick look at the ISO and @OlivierQC is right, no green flash and during the first 10 minutes playback I managed to see, no "glitch" appeared...

    Then I tried to playback the mkv file of "Basic Instinct" (also in Dolby Vision) and a green flash appeared at 4m2s (while she is tying him to the bed). I just had the time to watch the first 10 minutes and no glitch came up.
