    Tried it but there are no other (main movie) titles to choose from with these Kino Lorber releases. :(
    Good try but must be caused by something else. Dropped the main movie m2ts file on tsMuxer and that finds the PGS embedded subtitles correctly marked as EN (English). File and BD Menu structures are kept very basic for their releases.

    Obviously only a problem for the real Classic Movies lover like I am myself.
    Many of these releases are Black & White only but they keep releasing a lot of really good movies ;)

    Something is wrong for sure, but you need to detail far more what is happening before we can help.

    With firmware 2.2.96, the USB 3.0 port still does not work properly, it disconnects, to me personally after an hour and a half of
    playback. Nor does it work well with 2.2.82 and later. Could fix it, the firmware that doesn't cause problems is 2.2.30

    Have your disk on the OTG (usb2.0)? Do you still gets disconnects after 1.5hrs? And does it play without stutters? Do you have a USB WiFi or other transmitter (like a wireless mouse or keyboard) plugged in close to the USB connector? IF so--try it with the disk in the USB 3 and the transmitter in the OTG. There are known documented problems with SBC USB3 and transmitters interfering with with USB3 transfers, but you seem to play a long time before the failure. Sometimes the kernel needs to be fixed.

    This firmware is good but not great. Existing problems as below :
    1. Can not use zidoo controller apps to turn ON from standby mode.
    2. Can not lock and unlock batch of folder or wallpaper.

    Appreciate improvement on next firware.

    +1 Same here. Sometime 20-30 min, sometime 1-2 hour.

    No USB WiFi or other transmitter plugged in close to the USB connector.
    + WiFi in Zidoo turned off.

    You can use sleep mode. Standby will never work via any APP as this works using IR only as the CPU is turned OFF. The CPU must be turned OFF for EC regulations requiring standby power to be under 0.5 W. You can use any device supporting IR signals (copied from the remote).

    HDMI signal is frequently interrupt out of the box when 4k 23.976fps 10bit 4:4:4 HDR (BT2020) or no HDR, params on auto on the box
    HDMI cable is not root cause (try with hdmi 4k/8k and optical)
    symptomes the same if i bypass the av receiver
    pre .61 no HDR = average drop every 30s, HDR every 5s
    .61 no HDR no more drop, HDR drop depend of the movies (some none, some have few)
    .96 HDR : drop every 2/3 s, projector sometime display few sec film)
    When i freeze the picture to display movies info, it's ok
    when there is those interrupt, av receiver panel display no more HDMI signal received

    work fine if i set the box to 60 Hz then display is 4:2:0

    My opinion is that this is a hardware fault. It's not typical. If you bought the box from us contact us and we'll replace it.

    Could be still a cable (length) problem. 4:4:4 uses a lot more bandwidth than 4.2.0. Try a real short cable (like the one coming with the box) moving the box itself if necessary for testing.
    Still pictures have no problems then but fast movements may cause lost connectivity. Have seen so using my projector with a 10 m cable.

    i'm in optical cable so lenght does no matter
    By the way, fine with 60hz 4:2:0 (11.14 Gbps needed)
    24hz 4:4:4 is the same (11.14)

    I still can’t get subtitles working on mkv, while they are working with BD ISO. Please can you clarify how to set the player?
    I have currently set default language (Italian), default subtitles to off and forced subtitles to follow default language.
