    Hello,

    More than 4 years that I use Zidoo devices, I met people working at Zidoo such as FreeRoc ( he'll recognize himself ), Mirror, spring and several others who are no longer there but who were active on this forum and with whom I had many hours of exchanges,
    today Mirror is still there, and concerned about user feedback.

    A small thought for the member ''hdmkv'' who introduced me to Freeroc from the Zidoo company ,
    it is thanks to him that this adventure took place.

    4 years that I see that Zidoo does not give up and continues to try to resolve user feedback, knowing full well that it will be impossible for them to solve everything like any other box of this type,
    whatever the brand and that's what I like about them.

    For many months or years for some, very active members have been sharing their expertise with Zidoo and allowing Zidoo to understand and solve problems much faster.

    Many thanks to people like Markswift2003, Sledgehamma, Nice Monkey, Delucas, DaMacFunkin, Cucnz, Ghostshadow, Rozel, Boxerfan and many more who will recognize themselves.

    This is only my opinion, but there is a collaborative approach to this forum that I think is great... even if there are sometimes disagreements and it is part of a forum.

    A big thank you to all of you friends

    -----------


    I think this is one of my very first posts on the Zidoo forum ( on November 8, 2016 ) and Mirror was already responding to it and that hasn't really changed...

    Thanks again to all those who helped on the forum and to the Zidoo team of course.

    As far as I am concerned

    Hello Zidoo Team,

    if you read this message

    -----------

    I don't know if it's just me or if other people are impacted, but it's a point that I would like to bring to your attention again regarding FW 1.6.05,
    because I notice a clear difference with FW 6.0.90 (as I explained in one of my previous message).

    I installed and tried the FW 6.1.03 and there is the same problem as with the FW6.1.05.

    After having made several tests the problem seems to me less recurring when the Zidoo is connected to my receiver.

    For the moment I don't use my Zidoo with the eARC anymore.

    See you

    I just updated to 6.1.05 last weekend and ZDMC is finally resuming movies when using the zidoo native player, thanks a lot to the developers ;)

    It should also automatically select the next episode when you open the season rather than selecting the yellow (watched) one:

    On the start page of HT it always shows the backdrop of the first episode and not the episode you are watching:
    [​IMG]
    Progress bar should also indicate the progress of current season rather than the current or last watched episode.

    I think the way the backdrop is displayed should be changed as even for recent TV shows the quality can be quite bad like this one. Also no need for the TV badge imho.

    In case of long TV episode name it gets cutoff. There is no reason for the TV Show Name to be there. If it would just display the episode name there would be enough space.

    Hello Sledgehamma,

    Yes, your remarks make sense,

    For my part I would like to know why at the bottom of the page, there is the ''path'' of the video file.... I think there is no need for it.

    Si, Si ........ it is very useful to know on which hard disk the file is !!

    I also have it and I can see in the menu that it can be turned off - but it doesn't work.
    Disabling showing this path does not work


    P.S.
    @OlivierQC
    Are you thinking about translating the menu? I would like to help with this but now it is inept - difficult . Error on error .....
     
  11. OlivierQC

    OlivierQC Well-Known Member Beta test group

    Yes I have seen this option and I have the same opinion as you


    I did it with mumakil for the X9S at the time, but it was not easy with the French language.
    Mirror seems to be ready to give the tools to do it, but for my part it doesn't tempt me, it seems to me that inikad was interested to do it unless I made a mistake.

    Settings FW 6.1.05


    A lot of buyers like it when it's simple and they don't have to spend an hour in the settings.

    Here are the settings for users who want to get the most out of their Zidoo devices as quickly as possible.

    Note: If you use the Display/HDR/Auto option, everything is displayed in its native format and is usually the best choice.




    -------------

    Additional settings are available depending on your personal preferences or due to the limitation of your TV

    -------------

    Here is the link of the Markswift2003 thread to understand all the different settings of the Zidoo devices, I recommend you to have a look at it.

    See you

    A reminder to potential Zidoo device buyers and avoid a disappointment.

    Zidoo devices are designed for local content and not online streaming and they do not have agreements in place with streaming providers.

    If you want to stream from sources like Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Disney+ etc..., an Android TV devices or native TV applications will be a better choice.

    So i repeat, don't buy a Zidoo device hoping to use it with streaming video services applications.

    On the other hand, if you're looking for a media player with great value for money to enjoy your movie collection using your NAS or external hard drives, you can't really go wrong by choosing a Zidoo device.

    I've had several brands of multimedia box for the last few years and it's Zidoo that I chose.

    See you​

    There is a group of users who are having issues with this model "Vision" (Nothing unusual with a brand new model).
    What I would welcome at ZIDOO is the system by which DUNE displays DV and the like :

    - "Set Dolby Vison, or LLVD only when starting an HDR movie".

    I didn't find this function on the Z9X, either everything still runs on DV, HDR or nothing.

    I own only the DUNE 4k II model, the Z9X model was recommended to me on one website, but even after 14 days, I could not eliminate the basic problems I have with the Z9X,even less I will rename all my files to "file.HDR 10.2160p.dolby.5.1.etc" so that HT displays correctly the file resolution, all this is far from professional and serious manufacturer. (sorry)

    So I'm waiting for a patch (but I'm not deluding myself). I was also waiting for the Z9S, but after a year I gave it up and sold it.
    Since the purchase, things have stopped working before they are fixed, it started with netflix, subtitles, Google certificat, only L3 in KODI, HT etc
    (I have the impression that the zidoo is spinning in a wheel, and pushes more on marketing than development.)

    I could show you exactly the same video doing exactly the same thing on a Zidoo - it depends how the Dolby signal is derived.
