    After upgrading to 1.7.8 beta and installing the Play Kit apk the Rooting of the box does not work anymore.

    When trying to root again onekeyroot displays "root fail" message.
    Anybody else here having the same Problem or (even better) a solution for this??

    This is not true.
    Only 4:3 function is working. The functions "full screen" and "16:9" doesn't work.
    AND it's still impossible to enlarge the image when watching movies (first of all 4K and 3D movies) to avoid black bars on the top and bottom of the screen.

    So, when will be the new firmware for X20 with the option of the zoom of the image (no matter the name of function - or "aspect ratio" or "zoom", or "+/-")?

    How many weeks or months or maybe years need to wait when Zidoo fix this bug of its firmware?!!

    I tested on blu-ray, 4k, 3d movies - the screen changes on 4:3 position only. Doesn't work...

    Using the GappsInstaller-rtk-7.1_v1.2.1.apk Google Play services are installed but it is not really fully compatible. To be precise I am doing so on my Z9S, but doubt if it makes any difference.

    For streaming APP's I get not only the warning that it is not fully compatible but also videos refuse to play including the most relevant Dutch services like NOS/NPO (Dutch national TV). These do run on my Smart Android TV and Smart Phone without a hitch.

    Performance of the media player is really bad when playing BD and UHD Iso´s and BDMV´s. Picture and Audio have counbtinuous interuptions.

    The same files under the same conditions (SMB, NAS via GBit LAN) were played by the x10 without any hickups.

    Pls improve!!!

    Yes, i have updated and everything works fine for me. No freezes at start.
    Download the zip, put it on a USB stick and plug it into the player. Choose local update and locate the zip. Press update when asked. Done!

    It is absolutely dead and useless function. It works on rips (720, 1080 p only), not working with Blu-Ray, 4K and 3d movies, there is work 4:3 only.

    But it’s impossible to understand why Zidoo added these options because of they work as stretching only. As a result, we have the image with unnatural proportions.

    Still no scaling, still impossible to enlarge the image when watching movies (first of all 4K and 3D movies) to avoid black bars on the top and bottom of the screen.


    So, I repeat my questions to Ziddo - when will be the new firmware for X20 with the option of the zoom of the image (no matter the name of function - or "aspect ratio" or "zoom", or "+/-")?
    How many weeks or months or maybe years need to wait when Zidoo fix this bug of its firmware?

    Dear Zidoo, just mention the exact, true date!!!

    after Updated firmware v.1.7.8 with problems can not signal on TV Want to return to v.1.2.28 have a method or is there a way to reset it?

    @tipaltis: As Zidoo has still not issued any full imgage firmwares for flashing the x20 you are stuck on the latest installed Firmware.

    To my Knowledge there is no way to go back via OTA Updates. I would reecoment you contact the Zidoo Support directly and ask for a Flash Image of the latest stable FW. The more People ask, the better the chances...

    Well, it finally broadcasts a new firmware. Is it stable? If he had a problem with the X20 and no picture on the TV. Returning back with the predecessor firm?
     
  19. skelton

    skelton Member

    Yes, it’s stable. Usually, when there is no image on display or lost image, i always recommend swapping the HDMI cable and see it that helps. Could be some handshaking issues too so try a restart of all devices in the chain.

    skelton Member

    If you followed the instructions and saw that the player updated without any errors, then i don’t think it’s the update causing your problem. Have you tried changing the HDMI cable?
    And have you tried unplugging all of your devices and then powering them up again?

    From my experience, this type of problem are almost always related to HDMI cables or handshaking issues.
