    Not an ideal workaround but there is an app called soundabout that can divert the audio back to HDMI if you have a device that it trys to reroute audio to.

    I provided a test sample and how i configured the player. what do you need more ?

    But just for you again:

    2160p60hz/AUTO/AUTO/Sync Framerate to 23,976. Obviously im on 1.2.11. Tried with different color space and depth settings. no change. And no: its not a bad rip, it plays fine on computer and sony android tv.

    Raymond Charles, why kodi 17 sucks?
    ZDMC isn't able to update my collection of movies who are under an external hdd. I declared sources, i created an under menu for each.
    But even in using media cleaning function of kodi 16.1, my new movies aren't detected, and the erased ones aren't deleted....
    I tested kodi 17 (from playstore). There is not the same problem, it works perfectly.
    The only BIG problem of kodi 17, is that there is no sound. And he is limited to 1920X1080.
    If the zidoo team update zdmc under kodi 17, no more problems....
    So, no Mr, kodi 17 don't sucks.....
     
  6. Have you actualy tried this with soundabout app and the latest firmware to confirm it works?

    Not on this device, I have a zidoo x6 pro. Long story short my father has a mini m8s mk 2 which he has a remote with speaker that had the same issue as you were experiencing so I downloaded soundabout and tried and it worked. I did have to change a couple of the settings in the app(can't remember off hand but it was quite easy). You can always get from play store I think there is still a trial for app before you need to buy.

    thing is we already tried soundabout on x9s. it does not work

    Ok sorry, strange that it works on a less supported device like the m8s mini.

    I don't know if it's mentioned yet but I found a bug:
    When I start ZDMC and start a movie (through the external player) I a black screen for a moment and the resolution is switching. But after a while the black screen appears for a short while again and again. When I stop the movie and start it again it works fine. After that I can play different movies and the all work like expected. So the problem only appears when I start the movie for the first time after the X9S has started.

    movie tipe ? codec resolution etc.
     
  12. Henk Jan Baard

    Henk Jan Baard New Member Beta test group

    Codec and resolution have no effect. It happens all the time.

    Only seen black screen reported on some 4k videos. thats why i asked. on 1080p x264 h264 etc. i don't have this problem.
    can you also test with kodi 17 ?
     
  14. Henk Jan Baard

    Henk Jan Baard New Member Beta test group

    To be clear, the black screen is there for a short period of time. So after a second or so the image comes back. But it happens again and again when starting any video using the external player. So when I can't test it in kodi 17 because then it will not use the external player.

    Sorry? I don't understand your comment.

    when you have a combination of factors that result a bug. you need to brake it so you can determin where the problem is.
    So you need to test with zidoo normal player. with zdmc dvdplayer. eventualy with kodi 17. or other external player. depends on the results.

    Ok, I understand what you mean. I will test the different situations and let you know.

    @ Henk Jan Baard

    I also got the black screens flashing on some 4K movies (I only use the external player). My fix:
    Go to Settings-Playback and disable both Auto 23.976/24 and also Auto 23.97/59.94HZ
    The Blacks screens flashing disappears for me.

    I see you are Dutch:
    -In instellings menu onder de spelers instelling even automatisch 23.976 uitzetten en ook Auto 23.97/59.94HZ van beide!
    Dat was bij mij de oplossing. Hopelijk heb je er wat aan.
