    From the sample I've tried, I'd say at least 95% of mine play first time and most of those that don't will play trailer #2 if there is one.

    Can you give a few examples of those that don't play?

    Definitely something freaky going on with your box - I did try to use nfos a while back but couldn't get it to work, despite the nfos being correct, so I gave it up as a bad job - I'd stick with the online data, it works very well.

    I really want them to add the function of automatically scanning all files (before they are launched) for the audio codecs used, and the resolution (mediainfo).
    Why is it so hard to implement?

    I don't think it's particularly hard to implement, but I think it's a fundamental change to the code base.

    I completely agree though - this is actually quite important to not just the aesthetics, it also impacts the category filters since, for example, the 4K category is useless unless you've run every single movie in your collection at least once.

    v2.9.11 confirmed. It plays all blocked trailers. Hopefully it will stay that way. Trailers that didn't play in previous version are still the same. Low percentage in my collection.

    Settings and database will persist but when you're trying beta software like this ALWAYS make a database backup just in case.

    Version is on the "about" screen.

    In my harddisk, I created a folder in which I put all the movies and music.
    When I changed the disk, I copied the folder in the new one and in the Source menu I just deleted the old paths and created the new ones.

    I've never heard it discussed and to be honest it's not really in the remit of a media player - it's easy enough for a user to download test patterns or videos, whether 2K or 4K, LDR or HDR, Colour, Greyscale etc etc..

    For my money the Masciola Test Pattern Suite takes some beating, although the free Mehanik patterns are great too.

    Even if @Markswift2003 does not recognize it and choosed the wrong place for this thread: this version of HT is also for players like the Z10. Why he posted only in the Z9S part of the forum will be his secret.
