    Maybe only non hdr televisions are showing wrong color range with 8 bit hevc.
    (some 10 bit movies are ok...not all ...very strange)

    fw 2034 color range was ok for all movies, execpt the terrible stutter.
    watching Ant ant the Wasp web-dl was impossible.

    That procedure will clean up the box completely. A factory reset has almost the same effect. I don't know why but all media players run into the need doing so then and when (to be honest Windows too).

    When I flash with 2.1.11 colors were wrong even with reseting the box. Like I said maybe something gone wrong ...

    We do not have good infos for you situation. Maybe the cable maybe the TV, for example HDMI 1.4 (cable or TV input) will do 4K but only at 8bit. Please tell us what your setup so we can try to figure out what going on.

    thank you for the suggestion but i've already tried my 5tb on on other zidoo with lower version of firmware in usb3.0 slot and it's working fine. also i tried to plug it in usb2.0 and it's working smoothly. my problem is only at the usb3.0 slot of my zidoo. the usb3.0 slot of my zidoo were verified good and no problem because i've already tried to plug my WD 4tb's, USB's and other portable device and it's working fine.

    After reading this I flashed 2.1.12 again, set hdmi to 2.0 but still not OK. Then played a little with the settings and set hdmi range 0-255 and that was it! Colors are good now!

    So, at least for some user, 2.1.12 FW release solves color range issues ?

    And stutter problems?

    Anyway, all streaming now is handled diretly by my TV or by my Cromecast Ultra (for some HDR contents like Youtube).
    Currently I use my X9S only for playing local network video files, most HD, some FHD, a few 4K.
    I see some stutter on some video, but seems related to those specific files (bad encoding?).
    I can't tolerate only heavy stutter, the kind like slow motion flickering.

    When I try to install the update from a USB stick it gets to the part where it says it's going to copy the files and comes up with an error saying "Not enough space to upgrade, please delete some files" My x9s is practically empty. Help, please.
    Is there a way to overcome this without a factory reset?

    if i`m not wrong HDMI Rx function is for HDMI IN setting :p

    and yes i tried full range (0-255) the color now is good, not like previous firmware, what i like from full range is the black level furthermore for me that using IPS panel tv
    when saw Fear the Walking Dead S04 web-DL, its look nice and the black level is balanced
    just backup your HT data and do a factory reset
    but strange, i have about 2000 more files that have scrapped and when i updated it, work fine

    Yesterday it was the same again,black screen for a few seconds after playing 4k hdr 10bit,i set the automatic switch frame rate and resolution off and then it was oke.

    Automatic framerate will induce black screen at the begining of media and when exiting the player.
