    Holy Moly, new firmware is here. My wish came true. Hopefully this firmware will fix file playing problems (green screen/ freeze play/ stutters/ other bugs). I'll try it tomorrow.

    Happy Chinese New Year you guys.
  6. Someone has it installed?

    I did a factory reset before and after the upgrade from v2.1.30 to v2.1.40, everything is working fine.

    I just installed from USB over the top of v2.1.30 without any problems.

    New firmware installed. Nothing changes. Green screen/Freezing are still there. Changing some settings like 10bit to auto seems to help a bit. It's kind of hit and miss. First play might work. If I stop playing and play the same file again, it either freeze or get green screen. It happens to some files though, but it's annoying.

    Have you check your cables?
    You must have a true premium certificate cable to be sure..

    4K files are playing without problems. Few files that I'm having problems with are either 1080p and Web-dl 1080p. I'm not sure whether it's encoding issues in particular files or such.

    Anyway, I'll try different cable. Right now I use cheap ordinary HDMI 2.0a cable from Z9S to Anthem and Fiber 2.0a HDMI from Anthem to OLED.

    To illminate any handshake issues you must have a certified 4k hdmi 2.0 cable fitted
    Cheap hdmi cables can cause lots of issues .

    Elimminate that first then move forward etc

    Like he said, he isn't having problems with 4k files, just 1080 like everybody else who has this problem

    DELUCAS Well-Known Member

    No issues my end on 1080p files at moment .

    Can anybody upload one of these files or provide a link - I've never seen this green screen issue and I use the Zidoo a lot so I'm curious to replicate it...

    DELUCAS Well-Known Member

    He has not mentioned 7.1aac playback issues
    But 1080p web dl files
    Which could be any sound format !
