    Turned on Zidoo, Appears 2.1.40 was officially pushed OTA.

    Does it always ask you if you want to update the same firmware you are already using. That seemed different for me this time.

    So how does V2.1.42 firmware compare to the quite stable 2.1.28? I don't want to upgrade if it screws something up. (i.e. people seemed to dislike most updates after .28)

    So far, so good. No bugs detected.
    3DBuff and VonMagnum like this.
  6. 2.1.42 has given me some problem with the home theater so far. I wish I could revert to 2.1.40. Auto play random is by default and we can't disable it. Also, some issues with home theater when matching files and never had this problem before. For some files it jams when matching and it gets me back to the zidoo home menu. Get 2.1.40 and wait for an update.

    To get back flash with this method:
    Then upgrade to desire firmware.

    Does the newer firmware/home theater versions recognize Dolby Atmos soundtracks yet (for the information screen about the movie)? It recognizes DTS:X here for the older 2.1.37 version here (shows a DTS:X icon in the information for the movie). I'm just wondering if there's a compelling reason to upgrade on the chance something newer might be screwed up.

    Hi everyone I would like a confirmation, the best firmware is the. 28? I have the .25 and with 4k the images are sometimes blurry and have halos.
  10. To me the best is. 40

    if you display do not support HDR then i suggest .28 is the best choice
    i used it with my fullHD SDR projector

    but since i get a new projector now that support HDR10
    now i`m using Z9X coz this one can give a very nice SDR to HDR conversion :D

    BTW, for those with an old 4K TV: the Z9X gives also a nice HDR to SDR conversation with the DV-engine.

    yes, HDR to SDR too have a very nice outcome now
    good job from Z9X

    hello everyone, I have a lg oled cx tv and I have a problem with my zidoo x9s (firmware 2.1.1 blocked): when I play avc / h264 files the black level is altered and I have to set the tv to "high" otherwise the image is not displayed well. Any suggestions?
    My settings are:
    HDMI Mode: Auto
    Deep Color: Auto Color
    Space Mode: Auto
    HDMI Range: Auto

    Thanks everyone for the help.
