    ...unluckily no improvements over previous FW versions in regards to DVD/BD menu behavior.

    Chapter skipping is still also not possible with many DVD and BD ISOs.

    Is there any information if this is under investigation at Realtek for improving their SDK?

    I upgraded from factory v1.7.7 to v1.9.7 because of the changes in HDR to SDR handling detailed in the changelog.

    However, this firmware exhibits an unpleasant posterization effect during HDR to SDR conversion which previous firmwares did not.

    It is particularly noticeable on the new Bright or Cinema gamma settings. It is less obvious when the gamma is set to Vivid.

    I have reverted to v1.8.1 to check and posterization is not evident on that version.

    Can any of you gentlemen verify if new Z9S with latest firmware exhibits this severe stutter described here?

    More info on this file type typically marked as Web-Dl here.

    It appears that new players with RTD1296DD chipset are free from micro stutter issue from this thread. Just wondering if both issues have been corrected.

    As far as micro-stutters and chroma-banding go, for 23.976fps material, red = bad, green = good.

    Hi, guys!
    Just installed 1.9.7. It definitely ended playback via SMB... Even 1080 (forget about 2160) became a mega stuttered!
    It was not a problem for 1.7.7 I know my home network. It give a clear and stable 100mbps (80 mbps for file transfer)

    That's not my experience. SMB playback is perfect on v1.9.7 and I'm only using it for UHD BluRay Remuxes.

    I had an issue with HT2 crashing using NFS on 1.9.7 which I didn't have with 1.7.7 or 1.8.1 which is why I shifted to SMB.

    It's all 1000baseT with a part fibre backbone, 6 unmanaged switches, 3 managed switches with 92 clients. All switches are Netgear ProSafe.

    It's quite robust :rolleyes:

    How can I make my metadata read to musicplayer 3.0 and that's it? I DO NOT want musicplayer to get information from other db, can it be done? it messes up all my files and rematching to thousands of files is a nightmare

    Glad to see the 23.976 issue is fixed.

    But something else (that I don't recall with X9S) - I'm getting audio/video stutters around seamless branching segments... Is this a known issue and being worked on?

    My files are bit perfect UHD rips from my own disks via AnyDVD in ISO format...

    It's always something....
