  6. Hi guys is there any way to play my video by default in ZDMC when i select a movie in Home Theater Poster Wall ?
  7. godalmighty

    godalmighty Active Member

    i dont think so :(
    but why you wanna do that, coz for what i know, ZDMC (kodi) have a good scrapper than HT but HT have a better player than ZDMC default player
  8. Because HT default player wont downmix TrueHD audio into Dolby Digital AC3...

    You should work on your sound system a bit rather than compromising video quality using Kodi Player in order to solve audio conversion problem.
    Kodi or ZDMC player does not support hardware decoding properly and you end up with skipped frames, stutter and refresh rate issues.

    I was also going through audio issues with my old stereo receiver connected to the TV. Zidoo/Realtek player (from poster wall) does not allow center channel boost on stereo down mix like Kodi. Zidoo appears to be even worse compared to my TV doing the same down mix. It's like they split center channel volume at 50% between left and right. 2 speakers at 50% volume is something like 70% of the original 100% volume from center channel. It's not all that bad when using the headphones but on small stereo speakers with sub. the sound effects and music is much louder compared to dialogues.

    Trying to get it fixed from Zidoo is hopeless. It took them over 2 years to acknowledge and fix micro stutters that effected everybody on all types of 23.976 fps sources. They probably never get to adding center channel volume adjustment on stereo down mix since it would have to be done by Realtek group in player app. Player is not open source, not supported by Kodi and only Realtek has full control over this app.

    After struggle for a year I upgraded my small stereo speaker system to 5.1 and new inexpensive low profile Sony receiver 4K HDR and Atmos ready. I don't have space or desire to put large speakers and big amp for the 65in TV. I already have all that on my projector system with 150in screen. New receiver with small 5.1 cube speakers solved all my audio issues. The receiver is smart enough to map any raw audio signal to 5.1 speaker system. No more overpowering explosions and hard to hear dialogues. I also gained some other functionality like TV, Receiver and Zidoo HDMI sync., volume adjustments, input switching, Bluetooth to the phone etc.

    yes its true, kodi can downmix truehd audio but just like @3DBuff said, you will lose your video processing that native player have
    but if you have download proper content like bluray untouched, usually they profide more than one audio

    I have a problem with my player. I'm still using 2.1.25 firmware and everything is great, but now my TV has updated Samsung UE55MU7052 (europe) and now there is a conflict with my ONKYO TX-RZ800 receiver. For the remote control to work, I need to disconnect ZIDOO from the HDMI ONKYO input. And ARC not working from TV. I have already done factory reset of all devices and the conflict still occurs.

    Disable CEC? Zidoo CEC is notoriously unreliable.

    Yes, no changes enabled or disabled.

    Try different cables, switch HDMI inputs on receiver. Make some sense out of it. Go through all audio settings on the TV if the ARC is not working. Maybe you have some priority set for Zidoo in the receiver if you need to unplug the cable.

    Additionally change the behaviour of the Zidoo so when it powers down it does a full shutdown instead of going to sleep.

    Tested on various High speed and Premium cables. And in various other HDMI inputs the same. When I connect the ZIDOO to the receiver -> on the TV in the sound settings it immediately switches to the TV speakers, but the sound is in both the receiver and the TV. As I switch back in the TV sound settings to "HDMI receiver", the volume control does not work with the TV remote control. And when I turn off the tv with the tv remote control, the receiver stays on. -> I will take the hdmi cable out of ZIDOO, the receiver turns off immediately and everything works fine ...
    I don't have device priority settings.

    I've always had it so.

    This is some sort of HDMI CEC issue. You might have more traction sending this over to Onkyo. It’s going to need some kind of firmware fix from either onkyo or Zidoo. I disable CEC completely on my system because it has never worked reliably (even before I got my Zidoo). Any tv app audio goes through optical to the receiver and I use a Logitech harmony to control everything else.

    I have LG TV working great with Sony receiver. Volume control, on/off, automatic sound transfer with Bluetooth headphones no issues.

    I disabled CEC in Zidoo mainly to be able to wake up Zidoo and gain access to attached drives without turning the TV and the receiver on. It would also flip the TV from channels or Netflix to Zidoo. Operating Zidoo from TV remote was also a bit awkward and not fully functional. The downside of not using CEC on Zidoo is the selection overlay screen popping up on the TV from receiver asking me to choose an input. I need to use receiver remote every time to get it off the screen.
