    so maybe you just want to try to switch the Zidoo box to 4k/50Hz in the settings. Thew bug is independet form the fila I am playing. The HDR material I am using is 4k/24p

    Hello, your problem is HDR requires 10bit /12bit, My Samsung JS9000 TV will only sync with the Zidoo at 3840x2160@50hz if i set to 8bit or turn deep color off, leaving it at Auto or 10bit causes loss of sync on TV.
    Shame on you Zidoo because i reported this weeks ago.
    3840x2160@60hz and 24hz is not affected.[/QUOTE]

    That's what I am saying - in 8bit mode (4k/50Hz) everything is fine. When switching to HDR mode (4k/50Hz) there is a video signal only when HDR material is played. Stopping HDR playback then leads to a black screen as long as I disable the HDR mode (either in Zidoo settings manual to 8bit or switching manual off the HD Deep Colour mode on the TV).

    Again - when I am using the 4k/60Hz settings, no issues at all. But this settings won't work for LiveTV (a lot of stuttering).

    Hello, just updated to 1.2.7
    I found the problem of the ZDMC when play the TS files.

    Before 1.2.7, ZDMC can play the TS file normally and sync between video and audio. In 1.2.7, ZDMC play the same TS file, the video was faster than audio. Therefore the A/V was not synced. The video will stuck when play the TS around 2mins but no problem of the audio playing. It seems the video play faster. I tried to use the local media player to play the TS. It was OK but cannot detect the subtitles.

    I tried another player MXplayer. Same problem was found.

    Sync Refresh Rate to 23,976 of a 2160p file is stuttering. Even when the box is set to 1080/24p. 1080p at 23,976 working as normal.

    Testet Reset, Direct Link to TV (without A/V), different Color space and depth. Nothing works smoothly in 2160p..

    How can you suggest there is a problem with his TV when you haven't actually tried to replicate the problem yourself?
    As the poster says, you don't need to try a 4k/50hz 10 bit file, just change the settings of the player to 3840x2160p@50hz with deep color, you'll see.

    I cannot replicate since at DeepColor settings i dont have 8 bit, just 10-12-auto-off. At 4K/50 (3840x2160p) with deep color off (while the TV is set to deep color), all hdr fils plays well (hdr switches on and off at the beginning and at the end of movies). With Deep Color auto/10/12bit settings i cannot switch to 4K/50 at all.
    At 4096 × 2160p/50 it happens as described (10 or 12 bit, HDR file plays well, at exit the TV looses sync).
    Anyway, whats the reason for having 4k/50hz as a must?

    is it possible that two channel audio movie doesn't work?
    serial tv two channel audio, no audio with zdmc and internal player

    Seems that with this f/w, the DTS-HD audio in ZDMC with no use of the external player is out of sync. Was working perfectly with 1.2.6. Seems that the out-of-sync audio was fixed in external player but was broken in ZDMC. Audio is ahead of video.

    Try to watch Live TV in Europe... Without sync @50Hz will have stuttering all the time. So it is really a must have...

    Are you watching live tv with zdmc or some specific client? I wanna try it.
    Live tv through PVRclient (through zbmc) works really bad, so it is not an option to try it that way.

    Well - Zidoo box Kodi V17 works pretty well with DVBviewer PVR (using the internal player) - at least as long as you would have a continious signal. Same plug-in with Windows as the Kodi backend works flawless...

    Using the external player & Kodi 17 & Live TV works perfect - but you can't switch between the channels and also i.e. Videotext, EPG etc. isn't available. So this isn't an option

    I dont know what to say... It seems that is a kodi (zdmc) related problem (?), since i can play all my TV recordings perfect with the external player, however with zdmc it looks like a mixture of fast forward/slow motion combination, with good sound. It seems that it doesnt really matters the refresh rate (50/60). Even my firestick performs better with recordings and live tv as well. I havent tried kodi 17, maybe later.
    On pc the recordings/live tv are played well with kodi 16.

    I just set up kodi 17. At 4k/50 live streaming/recording playback works perfectly. Well just one strange thing, everybody's head looks like Trumps, somehow everything is a bit orangeish. ZDMC still unwatchable, mo mater what settings/resolution/refresh is set.

    Does anybody know what is the name of the external player and where is located? I think it is needed for playercorefactory.xml.
