Yes also having the same issue on my box with the latest firmware.
Same kind of pb with the the usb3 of my z10. No pb with the USB 2.0 slots but when I use any of the USB 3.0 to connect a HDD, most of the time (not everytime) the movies use to freeze (I have a message talking about gallery not responding and asking to close the app when I press the stop button). After that, no choice but to restart the zidoo to get back my external hdd in media center.
Same hdd and same movies but using one of the usb 2 slot, everything is ok.
just to add I sometimes experience problems with my sony tv via tv's usb port too. and it does seem to me the usb3 port is less reliable to the usb2. might be it could be more a bug on the os. perhaps the player can do some bigger buffering to work around....
Do those if you that are having USB3 problems have wi-Fi turned on in the box? If so try turning wi-fi off, it’s an age old problem on many devices.
Thanks for the tip, will give it a try
There is a problem with this update in zeta torrent pro when playing video stops after minutes in all files while in the update 2.1.30 all video files work non-stop
EDIT: Disregard this post. I reverted back to firmware 2.1.40 and all is back to normal. Thanks
This version 2.2.61 seems to have introduced a new issue for me. My mkv files are on an SMB share of another computer. After I power up the z9s if I try to play a mkv via zdmc it will flash "loading" then pop back to the GUI. This persists for about a minute or so. Then it will start working and play the file. Once it starts working all is normal. But for whatever reason after start up it takes a minute or more before it will actually play a file. I guess I will add a share to the HT2 and see if it also has this delay. I assume it is some sort of network issue but not sure. This is not a delay from the drives needing to cycle on - that is much shorter. I can turn on some of the verbose debug logs to see what they show I guess. Just wondering if anyone else is seeing this behavior or has any suggestions. Sadly my x9s is better behaved. Thanks.
Here is the log that just shows a generic error. Any ideas on how to get better info?

So it appears to be an issue launching the external player. Any way to get more info or better diagnose?
I updated my player to the newest firmware v2.2.61
Do i still need to update the HT application?
My HT app version is 2.1.8 but i downloaded version 2.1.9 although i can not update the app. I am getting error message "app not installed. The package appear to be corrupt."
It’s been a long long time since an up date..?
I was wondering the same !
Anyone gotten 10bit output to work on this ? Was supposed to be fixed but i still get a black screen on anything over 8bit on my Samsung 7005 HDR10 tv...
The 10bit black screen issue for me was resolved back on firmware 2.2.56, have not seen it happen again since.
Hoping for really big update this time. Maybe they need time to prepare that.
Nothing on the Russian 4pda forum either.
My guess they bundle it with the UHD2000 launch.
Lots of things needing a fix.
I have been trying to download the firmware for some time but the download always ended with a network error. Is it only my local problem or is the download currently unavailable?
Just tested the download, it downloads fine.
I have checked it again, still a network error. Could you please upload the file somewhere for me?
ok no problem PM me
