    The issue with HT2 was mentioned in the 1st page/download of this 2.2.56 thread.

    The separate HT2 apk was also explained in the subsequent posts and the download link was quickly included in the 1st post as well.

    This 2.2.56 FW is still not stable. The device will reboot when playing certain 4k titles. Sometimes it will be ok, sometimes not.

    Also it takes much longer for my USB 3 drive bay contents to show up compared to the previous FW.

    Not totally stable yet (seen galery abort, jump ahead during playback lock up and UHD menu being very slow e.g.) but none of these were reproducible so doing exactly the same another time that same action just worked fine. :mad:

    Played 2 UHD/HDR/Atmos movies from an USB3 drive and that went smooth. That is really good news. :cool:

    So yes it is definitely better on some points but we are not there yet. Mixing up USB port plug ins/outs is my biggest problem at the moment, that is reproducible very easy.:(

    OK I get that but my question was why when I upgraded to 2.2.5 (and then to 2.2.56) it did NOT upgrade Ht2?

    Perhaps there was no change in HT2 as 2.2.56 was only to fix the crash problem. Only when people complain about HT2 having issues, they saw a need to fix those specific issues.

    Hi would you please advise me which FW is better 2.1.30 or 2.1.40 because I think this 2.2.56 has a lot of issues and I need back to older FW? Also is it better to make hdmi mode Auto and color settings auto for all ( deep color mode, color space mode and hdmi range mode)? FYI my TV is LG Oled C8.

    Thank you for your kindness help.

    I'm using LG oled C8 too, and use the below settings:

    HDMI mode Auto
    Auto frame rate and resolution switching
    10Bit 444
    hdmi range limited 16-235

    Thank you for your reply but could you please advise which FW is better zidoo Z9S really I'm confused is it 2.1.30 or 2.1.40?

    Also do you change at picture parameter settings?

    Don't change the picture parameter settings.

    In terms of the "better firmware", I really can't comment, as all previous firmware's for me on the Z10 and Z9S have been buggy (blank screen issues) and I have been using my X9S in the meantime.

    Yes all previous firmware's were buggy for me (blank screen issues).

    This is your best starting point for setting up your LG OLED C8 TV.....

    After the HT2 fix ( Thanks Zidoo! ) I did not have that issue and I have some of the same films you are listing. What I have noticed is HT2 no longer auto scans when new files are added so you have to run the update manually for the library.

    Download the APK file place it on a thumb drive then under APPS use the ApkInstaller to upgrade HT2

    It did not update the version of Ht2 either
    Ditto here. Using the fixed Ht2. Annoying as this is one of the best features. Hope Zidoo fix this soon.

    So how do you update manually. I tried using the IMDB ID codes and that did not work. I get a cannot find file error message.

    This firmware is still buggy, I still get random freezes on movies, studdering, skipping, etc., I am using USB drive as well.
    I will go back to the Dune until this is fixed.
