    Installed it without problems from USB. New Quick settings are confirmed and very welcome. Changed my default to the new P23 to avoid frame-rate switching for almost all my viewings.
    Will add other findings here when found. Stability above all is what I will be looking for.

    Problems (not) solved with this FW:
    - Eject still does not work again. It may do so after a very long time only. The requested action is getting stuck in a queue/buffer someway.
    - The VL (11 character limitation) in Media Center is not solved. VL longer than 11 positions replaced by just HDD(A).
    + Pressing Info will indeed keep playing the movie.
    - The Music Player 3.0 main screen is nice with a turning disc + essential meta data at the left + Lyrics (when found on the right), but it mostly shows a wrong disc label turning.

    New problems not seen before:
    - Using Music Player the actual sound may disappear when a new song is started. I think it happens only playing SACD converted type of files (DSF/ISO). Going back to a PCM type of file sound comes back and will work again also for SACD converted files.

    My player just says bye and next goes into sleep mode (display off).

    Installed and another underwhelming release - unless I'm missing something. Unplayable bluray rips remain the same - still can' get Aliens to open to its menu.

    PLEASE for the love of God update the video wall so it can be split between Movies and TV. Its a real pain as it is.

    There is only the sleep mode and full power-off to stand-by. The sleep mode just works(wake-up brings one back where left).

    Did not see those in the change list, but Alien can be played without a menu just fine.

    There is an option in the developper options - "Deep sleep mode". If it off - display still work in Standby. That's what I meant.

    Aliens - not Alien!

    This confuses me.

    In the past I have set my power button to do full power off as I found that using standby would not return me to HT2, but to the main screen even though its set to open HT2 by default.

    If I set the developer option Deep Sleep Mode to off , standby will return me to the screen I was last in BUT it will ALWAYS show the word 'bye' in the display - even if I play a video.

    I have installed it and 25.000 fps content is unplayable... screen is flashing green ...

    In that case I better not install.

    Using Music Player 3.0 the actual sound may disappear when a new song is started. I think it happens only playing SACD converted type of files (DSF/ISO). Going back to a PCM type of file sound comes back and will work again also for SACD converted files. Did not see this one before.

    I use the Music/File buttons on my remote to switch between file browser and music player as there is no Folder option from within the players left menu. :(

    Download subtitle - only English available. can add on other language like Chinese for user convenience. Can link to subhd.com and so on ??

    Ok, I have restored to version 1.7.8 - factory restore and ... screen is flashing green playing 25.000 fps content. So Z9S is not able to play at 25.000 ? I have several shows in 25.000 Hz. During rewinding the picture is sometimes kicking in and playing fine and output is fine at 1080/25.000Hz - I have set switching resolution and frame rate to ON.
    I have 4K LG OLED, zidoo box is connected by AVR, but I have also tried directly to TV and it's the same - green flashing on 25.000 fps.

    I am still at 2.2.56. But never had any green screen with 25fps in any of the FW from 1.7.8 to 2.2.56.
