    Hello and thank you,
    I will test this, hoping that some requests that have been made for a long time will be taken into account.
    Thank you

    The clearlogos are missing for Movies and TV Shows regardless if the setting "Show clearlogo" is checked or not.

    first impressions:
    Good responsiveness and stability.
    there were somes requests that seemed important to me on the poster wall
    -When we choose the French language, and we scrape with TVDB, there is always the word "season" and not "saison" that appears (under the poster and in the description)
    -impossible to do a "refresh" of the tv series and therefore we still can't get the info of the series if we already scanned a first time and they were not available (we have to erase the database, and honestly it's inconceivable for some)
    -In the not watched, seriestv and movies are always grouped together, why not make a category "not watched movies" and a category "not watched tv series"


    -For the clearlogo, it's chaotic, I have some in German, in Russian, in English... Would it be possible to have an option to select the clearlogo ( in change picture option)?
    -When I launch a video, the black screen lasts a little longer, I would have thought the opposite when reading the improvements.
    the reading of the trailers are done in 15s approximately (before they were done in 25s)
    I will test the rest later.

    I use my Home Theater Tool and it worked until the update from HT 4.2.25 to 4.2.27

    That was actually one of the reasons why I've created my Home Theater Tool.

    In the description of MiRROR, it is said :
    "
    Poster Wall
    1. Fixed the problem that the widget 2 cannot back up.
    2. Optimized trailer data acquisition.
    3. Optimized picture loading function for widgets.
    4. Optimized the TV series rematching function.
    5. Fixed the abonomal dada on movies details interface.
    6. Added multi languages for TVDB.
    7. Optimized the ClearLogo picture loading.
    8. Optimized NFO parsing for TV series data.
    9. Optimized the pictures loading for TV series."

    and in your tool:
    "
    1. Fixed the problem that the widget 2 cannot back up.
    2. Optimized trailer data acquisition.
    3. Optimized picture loading function for widgets.
    4. Optimized the TV series rematching function.
    5. Fixed the abnormal data on movies details interface.
    6. Added multi languages for TVDB.
    7. Optimized the ClearLogo picture loading.
    8. Optimized NFO parsing for TV series data.
    9. Optimized the pictures loading for TV series."

    is it the same??

    local clearlogo ok
    net clearlogo ok (but not in the good language)

    No clearlogo when we scrap with TMDB for tv shows.

    @McBluna
    I wanted to install your Home Theater Tool. but it refuses to install.

    @mirror - thanks as always - cannot wait for it to be released for the other models, particularly to test the improvements to MP7 :)

    Maybe @Nice Monkey could test in the meantime on his Z9X ?

    Looks good, especially a lot of improvements to the Music Player segment.

    @mirror, when is this firmware going to be made available for the UHD3000 users?

    just did a quick comparison DV vs HDR10+ versions for a couple movies and dont think much has changed
    ie
    Alita HDR10+ playback is way too bright almost blown out compared to DV thou this has always been the case ...maybe they just didnt tone map HDR10+ well at all for it ?

    Back to the Future 1 HDR10+ looks a bit "dimmer, not as vivid" compared to DV

    The HDR10+ update is only to do with the use of metadata - in previous versions, HDR10+ metadata was ignored so essentially HDR10+ content was shown as HDR10. This is what has been fixed.

    Tone mapping happens in the display, not the file, but extent to which the display tone maps is defined by the metadata.

    I assume you are using two files since you say you use different "versions" and not switching EDIDs to test this, so it's not a fair comparison. The only way to see a true comparison is to use a single file with common HDR10+ base layer and Dolby Vision and switch between DV and HDr10+ using different EDIDs.

    (theoretically you could also force HDR10+ with Mapping HDR10 but I think there's a levels issue doing that - not checked if that's been fixed or not).
