    I don´t understand 'Since v2.2.56 changes', the previous version was 2.1.40 for both X20/Pro.

    Thanks Zidoo team.

    Hi mirror, a few videos played and seems very stable to me, but I have several questions:

    - DTS-HD or DTS-X audio tracks aren´t labeled properly when pressing Audio or Info button (appears just DTS 5.1)
    - How to activate Chapter selection on MKV videos

    sounds promissing!

    But AGAIN: Please provide a FULL IMAGE!!!
    NO MORE OTA!!!!!

    @mirror: Please define how a SACD Iso Database must be set up and structured to allow a correct detection/scraping of album, artist, titel, etc:
    - Folder nomenclature and structure?
    - Naming of ISO Files?

    It is a full image which is most convenient for standard updates without loosing all data and settings.
    I agree that a supplementary new emergency flash rom-image would be nice.

    Seems also stable to me...having toyed around and found no noticeable problems. Thanks for the improvements.

    ONE THING though ...almost there with mkv chapters of a mkv file which has chapter NAMES and not only chapter NUMBERS

    It would be nice if pressing the menu button it would display the chapter list WITH the NAME of the mkv chapter and not only as it is now the chapter number "for ex: 2/12".

    The NAMES of the chapters display ALREADY NOW when
    - you press INFO while playing an MKV with NAMED CHAPTERS and then press "more" :
    - you enter the video information screen (which BTW will pause playback)
    - you scroll down you will see the chapter informations with time, language aaaannnd .....CHAPTER NAME.

    Displaying chapter NAMES is very helpful for concert mkv where the chapters have been renamed with MKVtoolnix as in most cases one chapter = one song. It's way quicker than go through the full menu.

    - Gapless playback for Music Player 3.0

    - Crackling issue from speakers with DTS movies

    Hi all, during playback flac or HD music in general there are many "click" (the audio jump... sorry for my english, I hope to make you understand).
    I had this problem also with all the previous release of the software.
    The HDD is formatted by Mac as Journaled.
    Thank you for help!

    Feedback on MP 3.0 in FW 2.2.61 for x20:

    - The App crashed directly after starting the initial SACD Iso Database import (After Reboot the source is displayed with zero entries but refreshing works at least)

    - Only 2 Artists are displayed (should be 27)

    - Occassionan distortion/background noise during playback. Not reproduceable

    - 5.1 Tracks are only played as 2.0

    Still a long way to go before this banana software is worth calling a Music Player.

    Gentlemen from ZIDOO:
    - !!!!!!!!!!!!! IT CAN NOT CHOOSE A POLISH LANGUAGE IN THE AUDIO AND SUBTITLE MENU !!!!!!!!!!!! (MKV files) (not repaired by 4 new firmware - it only worked on the factory firmware - it was over YEAR).
    - forced subtitles in MKV files still do not work
    - ZDMC does not forward AVI files to the Zidoo player by default

    Thanks zidoo team for this update! :) just installed it and will be trying it out more in the next couple of days but at first glance, everything runs fine here. Nice to see that you keep working on regular updates.

    Sorry, but this update is even worse for DVD ISO Navigation than it was before. Very few of mine work at all and lock up in the Top Menu or go to a totally different Scene from what was selected. Back to my 6 year old Linux based Dune, which has no problem with any of my 300 DVD and BD ISO's.
    Wish I could find a way of disabling the Lyrics in the Music Player. Apart from being distracting to me, a lot of the time, it's showing the wrong song. But at least it's not in Chinese anymore.

    Also, I've found Forced Subtitles for MKV don't always work either. Again, the Linux based Dune displays Forced Subtitles for MKV (also with named Tracks Display from the MKV) and DVD/BD ISO Subs correctly.

    I agree with the flaws, but the other side of the coin is that in fact it is the currently best integrated Music Player for any Android Media player I have seen. :p

    There are a very few better music players for Android Smart phones (external USB DAC) working also on media players when it comes to SACD playback. ;)
    Even Dune bundles their € 1.500,- HD Ultra 4K with a Smart-Phone APP being HiByMusic to enable SACD/DSD via Internal USB.

    The good news is Zidoo is clearly investing right now in HD Audio next to Video, this seen the new Zidoo UHD2000 model announced yesterday. The new model is specifically geared at the SACD audio lover. So problems in that area will be solved for sure. This next to being capable to support other Music Player APP's.

    I have just updated to latest firmware and after resetting to factory before and after installation, I re-install my other apps. However, after successfully re-installed Viki and ES file manager, my X20 Pro can not be booted up. The Zidoo logo keeps showing and after a while, the screen turns half white and half green and goes back to Zidoo logo again. I need to know how to hard refresh or hard restart this unit. Can anyone help me? Thanks!

    @Nice Monkey do you have a link for me to download? I have tried latest APK and it causes the whole unit froze so I have to flash it and re-install again and again. :(
