    Hi, just considering switching from Shield TV Pro to a Z9X for its VS10 stuff, but have some concerns. So i hope i can get some answers here. Thanks!

    I mainly know whats possible in Kodi/ZDMC since thats also running fine on Shield TV. Yet i'm interested in the native HT app from Zidoo.

    1) Does HT 4 has a working trakt plugin? So will my trakt watched status sync to HT 4 ?

    2) Can HT/native player transcode DTS to AC3 or via PCM->AC3 for the spdif port?
    I use a surround headphone DAC and it expects AC3 5.1 only via spdif. I know this works in Kodi/Vimu player, but how about HT?

    3) Is there a Jellyfin plugin/connection for HT, so i can use a Jellyfin server?
    Main reason is that HT don't seem to have any Anime related scraper/scrobbler/plugins? So having HT work with a Jellyfin server would be ideal, since there are lots of anime related plugins for that platform.

    4) Does Zidoo in general support full audio routing to a external USB-DAC in surround mode? So 5.1/7.1 pcm to a external USB-DAC? Again i also own a X3 creative usb-dac and it expects surround PCM via USB to function correctly.

    1) yes with latest beta FW
    3) sadly, no :( I really would love that feature as well!

    Thanks, from what i found there is only Emby Client support, while Plex is none existent and Jellyfin AndroidTV app might work, since they allow external players atm. But they might remove this after the playback rework.

    Kinda unfortunate, i would really like to test the VS10 stuff, but cant stand the buggy/slow Kodi plugins. Guess i have to wait for "official" Plex/Jellyfin support, which might never arrive.

    Thanks anyway
