    I really don't know what Zidoo is playing at.
    They need to lift their game and make sure that the player is certified.
    Not good enough.

    BTW, Xiaomi Mi box (cheaper that X9S), is fully certified. Can do 4k/atmos Netflix + 3D MVC + bluray menus using latest official kodi 17.4... I'm considering getting one and moving the almost useless x9s to the bedroom...

    Yes, xiaomi managed to get 4k netflix on there boxes ( international version only MDZ-16-AB ) , for netflix content it's a good buy.

    "All very easy, and it all worked just fine for my X6 Pro"

    So far no problems at all.

    Higher resolution handled by X6 Pro and sideloaded Netflix app?

    So, what's the max resolution with the above linked app achievable? 1080p?
    How about a multichannel sounnd from the mentioned app?

    Frankly - I'm also a bit unhappy, that the all ads says NETFLIX / Showmax / other player, while the unit 'off the box' at the first start informed me, that the Netflix (and other apps as well) is not supported.
    I had to spent some hours in order to search for the 'solution' for each of the 'problem' separately.
    While Netflix finally works (some way, not as it should, and no 4K...), the Showmax isn't - due to the lack of WideVine/DRM's - I'm paying monthly fees for the service which I can not use otherwise than via the PC/Laptop...
    I can understand the 'dccc' to feel cheated and there's no crying in his words - he just concluded the fact, that X10/X9/... are being advertised as NETFLIX/other service players, while this is not the truth and at least requires some research and tests in order to get the working applications. Still - some of them - like Showmax in my case - do not work as they should. That's disappointing.

    Playing the 1080p/4K content - more or less is working rather good.
    So far I have 3 or 4 movies with 4K + HDR or DV content which is not being played by my X10.

    An update:

    The most recent version of the Netflix app for Android is not compatible with all Android devices running Android 5.0 (Lollipop). If you downloaded the Netflix app from the Playstore and saw a message directing you to install an earlier compatible version, you can download the latest compatible Netflix app here.


    This version of the Netflix app requires Android version 4.4 (Kit Kat) or later.
    First, you'll need to set up your Android phone or tablet so you can install the app directly from us:

    1. If you haven't already, uninstall the Netflix app.

    2. After you've uninstalled the app, go to Settings.

    3. Tap Settings.

    4. Tap Security.

    5. Check the box next to Unknown Sources: Allow installation of apps from sources other than the Play Store.

    6. Tap OK to confirm this change.

    You can revert back to your original settings once you have installed the Netflix app.
    Then, on your Android phone or tablet:

    1. Click here to download the Netflix app.

    2. A blank screen will open and then close to indicate that the download has started.

    3. When the download is complete, swipe down from the top of your screen to open your Notification panel.

    4. Tap the downloaded Netflix file and select Install.

    5. The installation is complete when the notification bar at the top of the screen displays Successfully Installed Netflix.

    6. Find and launch the Netflix app.

    7. If prompted, enter your Netflix email and password using the on-screen keyboard.
    You're now ready to watch Netflix on your Android phone or tablet. Enjoy!

    How about having the leanback version of Netflix working on the H6 PRO?
    Any way around to spoof the server to think is installed in a android os box? thanks
