    I dont have big problems yet, and I am wondering if I should update, is it possible to downgrade the same way from usb stick as update if things get buggy?

    Any word on a f/w update to fix the issue w/MKV's (1.85, 2.40, etc. encodes w/o black bars) being squished to fill 16x9 frame when auto resolution switching is enabled?

    Not an issue when framerate switching isn't enabled, then then 1080p gets upscaled to 4K.

    Will check it.Thanks. Could you provide a MKV sample file to us?
    In v1.5.0, If enable the auto resolution switch, the output resolution will be follow the movie resolution(movie resolution must > 720p),

    Sorry for the question
    When updating to this latest firmware version 1.5.0. Also included are all the other updates released previously?
    Thank you
    I have purchased the Zidoo X9S, they have to send it to me, and I am preparing the latest Firmware 1.5.0.

    In this situation (auto resolution switch enabled) what happens if the resolution < 720p?

    My 480p content is being converted to 2106p...

    Any comment or solution to what is going on in this thread... YCbCr 444 vs YCbCr 422... Why the difference?

    Something is clearly wrong with color space management.

    In order to get (what seems to be) the correct output... The user must select auto for Deep Color and Color space. But the player is not selecting the correct settings. In auto mode... if the file is 420 at 10bit the player outputs the file at 444 at 12bit. Example with photo proof linked here.

    You can try any MKV that's 1920 x 800 (2.4 scope movies).

    We've tried some 1920*800 MKVs, but there's not any scaling issue:oops:

    Well... I saw a few video file with wrong aspect ratio.
    But, in Media Center, that uses Zidoo player, choosing menu during play and choosing the right video "size" (I don't remebre, something like a "fill" or "keep", sorry, I'm not at home and can't check what's appears exactly on screen) then the video is played in the correct aspect ratio.
    Anyway maybe that some "exotic" aspect ratios are still not handled right.
    Zidoo, any reply about?

    But sometimes (rarely indeed) I had to change the aspect ratio parameters in the video file itself, with a video parameters editor (is something to change in header, I suppose).
    And yes, some windows video player handle this files well even not "patched" (or the opposite, seems something like a dice game o_O), but this "header patch" haven't harmed the playing of this videos on other players.
    This in my humble experience, really minimal because if I find a video that plays wrong, I'll do my best to find another better encoded. And usually (sooner or later) I find it.

    When the source has 720@25p auto-resolution switches to 720@50Hz :( When the source has 1080@25p auto-resolution switches to 1080@25Hz
    It is possible to make sure that when resolutions are less than 1080 auto-resolution switching does not switch?
    720p@25 will switch to 1080p@25

    1-Subtitle problems,
    With external .srt subtitles - the first 5-6 lines do not showed up, and then appeared alltogether.

    2-HDMI in, Recording Video is fine but Audio is garbled. Worked fine with previous firmware 1.4.16.

    Please Fix It Thanks.

    Same subtitle problem (External UTF-8 subtitle) with some movie files only!
    I think it's related to how the X9S interrupts the movie file's timestamp.
