    AS Markswift2003 says if its DV no need to label it HDR. DV is a step above HDR 10+ just like HDR 10+ is a step above HDR10. I've never tried labeling my movies HDR 10 or HDR 10+. If its HDR10 or 10+ I just use HDR in the title. If its DV I will then use DV in the title. TinyMM will not add the HDR or DV info to the title so if you want this info added to title you will need to manually add. When I use TinyMM and rename my files TMM will do as such:
    NameMovie (Date) 2160p OR 1080p if 720p then nothing added Highest Audio Track.mkv. If you want to add HDR or DV I do it after the Audio Track.
    TMM is almost perfect and I say this only because there has been only 1 move that I have had problem with in adding the additional info. Have not yet found a reason.

    What triggers the 4k or UHD badge in HT4?
    I added Movie one version in mkv format and another version Blu-ray disk (.iso). mkv version banner shows a 4k banner Blu-Ray (.iso) as UHD.

    The small media labels, HD, 4K, DVD, are sometimes disapearing, not all, but mostly 1 or 2.

    Re-Matching does not bring them back, is there a way besides copying the video to my computer, removing it from the zidoo, and copy it back.

    You have answered your own question. A full blu-ray backup is generally marked as UHD. MKV 4K files will be marked as 4K.

    I've never had that issue. If you have played the files on the Zidoo for a minute then it automatically picks up the labels. The other option is to put the label like '4k','hd',fhd' in the filename. If you have done this and they are still disappearing then that is strange. You may want to factory reset your Zidoo.

    You don't have to factory reset the player.
    1. You could clean the library, the stuff is stored in the HT database. First time you start a video the labels are stored and never got updated.

    2. or exclude the files from the source, do a rescan. Rename the files, put them back to the source and do a rescan. So the files will get new database entries.

    3. or you edit the sqlite database yourself and delete the column media_info from table video_info. The database files is stored in a library backup.

    I don't mean the labels like 1080, 4K, 23.976, etc.

    I mean the little colored labels on the posterwall in the right topcorner of the poster.

    Those come from the media itself once the film is played or from the filename which is why I made the suggestions.

    That would be great. But one of the advantages of the Zidoo is the speed of scraping. If it ends up being as slow as Kodi then I hope they make sure that it scrapes audio and not just video information.

    There will be a speed hit because it has to inspect every file whereas now it just has to do a directory search.

    As I said before, I have no problem with that as long as it parses both video and audio information. If it still just parses video information and ends up being as slow as Kodi then I'm not sure how useful that is because the Zidoo will find the information anyway once the video is played.

    When at this moment speed is at 100%, what kind of speed will be left ( In % ) ?
    Will the loss of speed, be worth it.....
