    They have added more options in H.T.v2 on the Z series
    And sadly the Z series is the new baby on the block and will get prioritised first .

    But the X series will prob get later on .

    Hi guys, is it possible to schedule a media scan? I would like to have it automatically scan when a new file is added, or automatically at a set time.

    any tips

    in my box, every times i add a new files its automatically do a scan job
    but what i want is i do a scan by my order, not automatically
    coz sometimes when you have copy many files and it got wrong scrap :(

    meanwhile, i dont know that HT can scan a music video like concert too

    I received an error "Gallery has stopped" (or similar) while playing a movie around 20 minutes in. Any idea what the hell that was suppose to mean?

    The screen switched back to the file (movie) list, but the audio kept playing.

    I've received that error again, it doesn't seem to affect anything.

    Is there a separate download file for Home Theater 2?

    backup ur scan result and do a factory reset
    if you using X9S there's a new firmware release v.2.1.22 and HT got a few feature added for a better scan result

    I don't do a "scan", I don't want all those annoying posters that clutter up the O/S. AFA that update, there should be another out (they are up to v30 with the other models), that I want to wait for.
    The error doesn't affect anything that I see, I just wondered why I got it in the 1st place.

    Is there a list of all badges that can be created in HT 2.0? I have found many of them through trial and error but can zidoo provide an official supported list please for reference?

    How come the greatest player available and you should be proud of that crown, even if temporary will not recognize DTS:X and Dolby Atmos badges. It only defines the underlying track of DTS and TrueHD. This should be simple enough to address. Kodi has this working and supported in the most advanced skins.

    Please consider this an official request for this feature of displaying badges for object based audio formats.

    I am using KODI parsing.
    Does anyone know what names should have and where to find graphics - posters and fanart to load them into HT ??
    He is currently loading movie posters, but not collections.
    I have collection graphics in the movie folders under the name - movieset-poster etc.

    After the latest firmwire update, my home theater is not working. I scanned my hard drive and it does not recognize any of my movies.
    For example, Incredibles 2, AntMan and the Wasp, The Meg, etc.,. It recognized them on the prior firmware.

    I tried typing in the IMDB ID number and that didn't work either.

    Any suggestions?

    Have you gone into your Home Theatre sources and cleared them out... and then set them up again? I did have an occasion where my Home Theater glitched.... it didn't totally stop working, but it wouldn't see all the movies in 1 of my sources....and nothing in the Not Matched either... I simply deleted source and re-added... then it worked fine again. And if that doesn't work, maybe reload firmware? or the Home Theater app?
