    Thnx Mirror and Team, for another update.

    Edit:
    Can you add an option to download subtitles only in the selected language. (Only English here, no Dutch!)

    Can you add an option to extract an internal srt, so we have more options and no random letters and symbols after the last word of a subtitle line.

    Can you add an option to switch automatic to 10 or 12bit with the correct color mode if the resolution is UHD.

    Can you add an option to create your own custom movie list in HT2 in the settings on the left (Like kids)

    Player
    1.Added function that when showing video information the movie will continue playing.

    This is a nice addition

    Other than that not a thrilling update for me (since I am using ZDMC and not Home Theater / Music), everything is working as it should like in 2.1.22, I have nothing to complain about.

    I see options for locking video resolution / refresh rate ignore EDID tags in quick setup. I'm assuming this is to battle "Wake up - NO HDMI Signal" issue.

    I have that on LG OLED. I found that if I put refresh rate to 24Hz (4K) under display in quick settings on previous firmware it would wake up properly for me. With this switch it should work with 60Hz. We'll see after few days. 24 to 60 Hz for Zidoo interface screen and Home Theater app is not much of a difference but with fast OLED screen I can see fast transition of posters opening up or a bit choppy slow frame.

    @mirror can you comment on crippled Home Theater search function? How difficult is it to make it user/remote friendly?

    1. Search function for Home Theater app. We need direct keyboard input to create search string. Just like ZDMC.

    2. Numeric keypad for search needs some improvement. We should be able to use numbers on the remote corresponding to the keypad on the screen in order to cycle through the letters just like typing on the flip phone. Using arrows around to select number and arrows again to select letters is just annoying! Who came up with this anyway? Did he ever use flip phone?

    If you don't have "Wake up Zidoo - NO HDMI Signal" issue you probably don't need locking video resolution. It won't make any significant difference to you. It only effects Zidoo interface screen with HT poster wall not the player when the movie is on.

    Developers, Tanks for very much improvement. :) Now i can set the Next Page Buttons to skip completly videos while playback runs, and that the Zero Button starts the Video from beginning again, like it was before 2.1.22. I'm very happy with this firmware, good work and all runs fine.

    My 4K 60fps home videos now run with 60fps. Again, much thanks.

    The Only issue still exists with the slideshow gallery. Photos don't looked sharp (like strong aliasing is present = strong staircase effect on contours) . But Only in "Slideshow" Mode, in Normal Mode Picture Viewer Photos look beautiful (with different TV's and Resolution tested). Had feedbacked this to support, but no solution until now.

    I put the new firmware but I have big problems the box turns off and comes on all the time, how can I remove this firmware and replace it with the 2.1.22 I had before and it never gave me any problems? I made a will remain in the factory but the firmware is still 2.1.25 how can I replace it? Thanks to those who can help me.

    maybe not just that, i will test it next for my suspicion
    maybe you must go down to very previous firmware to do that
    using stock rom like 1.2.6 or 1.4.12
    its not a .zip file but .img file
    to flash you have to shutdown your device first then power up and press hold the reset button until the android robot show up
    but still DWYOR
    coz from what i read since 2.1.12 we cannot perform a downgrade firmware :(

    Before you downgrade, have you tried to set it to Factory default settings ?
     
  13. godalmighty

    godalmighty Active Member

    yes he or she should tried factory reset first before downgrading
    coz all in here using the same firmware and got no problem

    Yes I did the factory reset but the firmware always remains 2.1.25 and always gives me the same problem.

    I am asking because on x9s purchased with software 2.1.1 it is not allowed to lower the software.
    Edit: Was it lower than 2.1.1?

    I think you must flash your X9S again with this guide:
    http://forum.zidoo.tv/index.php?threads/how-to-flash-zidoo-x9s-unit.2959/
    Then it's the same as factory installation.
    Image file is there also.

    But I know that the new shipping of the X9S has een updated firmware (I also thougt 2.1.1), so I don't know if that is a problem.

    EDIT:
    I read this:
    Beware.. if your box shipped with v2.1.1..
    DO NOT downgrade firmware below 2.1.1

    Your box will stuck forever & no procedure available to recover it.. not with emergency recovery, even with usb uart ttl method.Zidoo dev somekind change the command console & blocked user to recover it.

    I have dead x9s lying in box bacause of this.
