    Looks like this may be the final FW for the x9s. Pray this is the stable version with major problems fixed. Keep fingers crossed.

    Maybe they are overworked. Better not update this. They might have given the wrong model FW.


    Pls note, after above statement , the wrong file was already replaced with the correct one. So it's safe to download from above link.

    Seriously impressive update - 23.973fps across the board measured on a Vertex - same as the Z9S, same as the Oppo 203, same as Panasonic 820.

    This should mean the end of microstutters on this box.

    You guys are the best. Will buy more from Zidoo in future. But can you please put back rmvb support which was broken in fw 2.0.34. I have still not updated since that older fw and was waiting for most stable one. I will be updating to this fw 2.1.22 to see if rmvb is playable.

    There will be no support in the future.You know, It's about copyright.
    Maybe you can try a third-party player.

    Thanks once for the really mature firmware.

    But unfortunately I will return to 2.0.34, bacause of 2 reasons:

    1.) Now you have the opportunity to make direct jumps to the next or previous video without stopping the playback. And that works, too, if there are chapters in the video.
    The problem is that this is only possible about the GUI of the player. One button press to open the GUI, another to open the GUI buttons completely. A third and fourth to select the button "Forward" or "Backward". And a fifth (OK) to execute. That's 5 !! Keystrokes!

    That's too complicated. I had suggested using the Arrow buttons on the Basic IR (or Page Up / Down on the advanced IR) because they have exactly the same function as the chapter buttons (Directon Up and Down). This is even more inconvenient for me than ending the playback and calling the corresponding video in the media center. Sorry, but that's nonsense.

    2.) We always used the "zero" button on the remote to start the video from the beginning if you missed the beginning. Now you have to cumbersome specify a time where you want to start. The other numbers buttons were not changed. But we find the zero most important. One Klick, and the Video runs from beginning. This was the best way.

    Could not a lot of things simply - if it is not possible via a direct keyboard input - as an assignment to the option coloured keys? That would have been a lot easier.

    As I said, the firmware is mature, but the operation is now much more complicated than in the version 2.0.34. And we will install these back again. Nevertheless I hope that this will be changed. Thanks in advance. Here we could jump to next/previous File (with Chapters) by press twice the Arrow Keys. And the Zero Button plays the Video from beginning, as it should be (logical).

    Two problem for me

    1) The diff power off options can't be saved. It always power off , no matter what option you choose. The ''ask me" and "standby" are not saved. The moment I exit the settings, it reverts to "standby" option by default, but it still shutdown the moment I press the power button.
    2) Why can't DVD chapters be selected using the ''Next" and "Previous" button on the remote? If bluray can use the 'Next' and 'Previous' buttons to skip chapters, surely DVD can also be done.

    Other than that, this is good firmware.
