    Must admit I'm really curious now - I'd love to see what's going on and it'd be interesting to see a hex dump of the Lumagen's EDID...

    Might be worth asking Jim if he'd share that.

    Thank you so much for staying with me on this. Using the HDFury should be an adventure. Stay tuned!

    This may not be a Zidoo problem & may need to move future posts to Lumagen forum. Two reasons:
    1. Out of curiosity, I unplugged the Sony projector from Pro & plugged in a 4K monitor. This allowed 4k 23p preset on Zidoo! As reported before, removing Pro from circuit & going straight to projector also allows 4K 23p preset on Zidoo.

    2. Another Zidoo owner (different model, but same firmware #) with an LRP has no problem presetting 4K 23P on Zidoo. He probably has a different projector.

    I have reported this to Lumagen and awaiting a reply. In the meantime, I will be attempting to download EDID info using the Vertex2.

    Interestingly I was talking to another guy with an Zidoo X9S connected to a Lumagen and he had an issue where the Lumagen was not passing the HDR SEI message from the Zidoo - he contacted Jim at Lumagen and a firmware update fixed it.

    I think there's something a bit screwy with EDID handling in the Lumagen - I don't think it's the Zidoo or the projector, more like an incompatibility between the three, probably EDID related and certainly fixable.

    In the meantime, try stick the Vertex between the Zidoo and Lumagen and set the Vertex EDID on the input you use for the Zidoo to EDID #11 like this:

    Yes, I have EDID #11. It must be a default since it booted in this setting.

    I'm coming from a X9S.
    With the X9S and intern srt subtitle, there is sometimes a rondom symbol or letter after the last word.

    Is this fixed with the Z9S?

    Not that I've noticed. I've watched a few films recently where I've used the download subtitle feature which as worked really well. Only issues seen is if the issue is within the subs themselves.

    Could it be that NFS has stopped working in this version?
    I was able to login to the NAS via NFS and see the folders but it woldn't go in the sub folders as before

    Same as @blenky - never seen this behaviour.

    No, NFS works fine with this release as before (as long as you define NFS as active for the shares you want to use on the NAS).

    To be honest though, these days you're better off with SMB.

    As @Markswift2003 says NFS works fine. I tend to switch between NFS and SMB depending on my mood. Both work fine for me.

    It simply won't enter to subfolders...

    I switched to SMB but now I have may unidentified items in HTv3.0.45

    I know it's a bit obvious, but have you tried a hard reboot of the Zidoo and the NAS?

    I had a power failure for a few minutes and I did after that a hard boot of the Ziddo
    but it did not help

    Thnx for your anwser, Blenky too.

    I mean this problem with the X9S:

    Check the pictures please.
    This happens with MKV with intern srt subtitles.
    It shows random letters and symbols.
    With external srt subtitles there is no problem, only with internal srt.

    I want a new MP, but not with the internal srt issue.

    Can you please confirm that this issue is fixed on the new models?

    So the next step is to see if Zidoo can get Tv Trailers working on HTv3
    My Band of Brothers series does not amongst others any one else got it working ?

    Have you enabled access to the folders within the NFS settings on the NAS?

    I didn't see any specific definition for that in my QNAP NAS, I will have another look.
    However it was working well in the past 8 month and suddenly stopped, where the only change was the Ziddo firmware version

    Screenshot_20200720-094236.png My recommendation is to backup your library and to clear systen application data.

    Can anyone confirm if this firmware fixes the issues with unstable play of mkv files?

    My primary use of this is device is mkv files and I've been stuck on firmware version 2.3.7 for a while.
