    16.4.13 is the same version I had on my X10 when I bought it 3 weeks ago, so its unchanged I think from the last firmware. I presume they wont be working on 16 anymore and instead are working to revert the firmware to make it compatible with Krypton.

    I just noticed there's a way to choose Kodi as default player instead of Zidoo player in Kodi Settings > Playback. Surprisingly bitstream passthrough even works when Kodi is used.

    But 3D ISO still doesn't work with Kodi, only the ZDMC player works. But there's a lot of stuttering when playing 3D ISO files using ZDMC which was not there before, not sure why.

    once i have upgraded to v1.4 i have a strange bug with hdmi recording :
    whatever bitrate you choose file generated are 5Giga per hour . but after a simple copy by avidemux (copy not re-encoding)
    the real bitrate and the size is ok !!
    ex: one hour with 5megabit rate gives 5giga file (media info say 10m/s)
    -after copy by avidemux or similar file is 2.5meg/hour (media info say 5m/s)
    it doesn t exist with v1.2.12

    Feedback after a week of use of firmware 1.4.4

    Subtitles :
    definitively better ! Especially because there's no more delay.
    Still some italic tags not detected but not a big deal

    Bluray support :
    Big improvement too !

    Remaining bug :

    Ycbcr4:4:4 and deep color modes generate audio stutter.
    I force Ycbcr4:2:2 output to fix the problem.

    New bug :
    4K display is not correctly detected if output display is set to "auto", resolution will be changed to 1080p maximum.
    I force 4K output to solve the problem (even if, for no reason, it sometimes goes back to "auto")
    Autoframe rate can then be set to auto.

    Performance bug :
    Browsing a NFS folder with lots of videos from the media center is verrrryyyy long !
