    Thought I'd start a recommended settings thread for the new players.

    This thread will no doubt grow with time.

    Essentially things are the same as before, but there are a couple of settings that have changed, for example there is no "HDMI Range" control now as this is taken care of automatically.

    Also the VS10 options have changed at the behest of Dolby.

    MAIN SETTINGS

    Playback/Automatic frame rate/Frame rate mode: Match frame rate and resolution *

    Display/Resolution: 3840x2160p 23Hz **

    Display/Color Settings/4K 50~60Hz: Priority YUV420 10BIT
    Display/Color Settings/4K 23~30Hz: Priority YUV444 10BIT
    Display/Color Settings/Non-4K: Priority YUV444 10BIT
    Display/Color Settings/HDMI color range: 16-235 ***
    Display/Color Settings/Deep Colour compatibility mode: Turn Off
    Display/Color Settings/HDMI Signal format: Enhanced format


    Display/HDR: Auto ****

    Audio/HDMI Audio: Auto *****
    Audio/Downmix HD Audio output: OFF


    * Personal preference. You can use "Match frame rate only" to allow the Zidoo to scale and reduce HDMI resyncs

    ** Personal Preference - setting to 23Hz will reduce resyncs because the majority of content is 23.976fps

    *** Auto should work just fine but I prefer a belt and braces approach.

    **** Can be set to VS10 engine, but I don't recommend "Mapping HDR10" or "Highest SDR Rec.709"


    ***** There are issues with "Auto" only playing LPCM for some audio codecs in FW prior to v1.0.70. If using earlier firmware, set this to "RAW"


    NEW VS10 SETTINGS

    VS10 options have changed from input dependency to output dependency:

    Dolby Vision VS10 Engine (Output DV)
    Uses VS10 to output GUI and all content as TV Led Dolby Vision (as long as EDID allows).

    Dolby Vision VS10 Engine (Output HDR)
    Uses VS10 to output GUI and all content as HDR10 (as long as EDID allows).

    Dolby Vision VS10 Engine (Output SDR)
    Uses VS10 to output GUI and all content as SDR.


    Dolby Vision Low Latency (LLDV, YUV422/444/RGB, 10/12-bit)
    Uses VS10 to output GUI and all content as LLDV (as long as EDID allows).
    Available colour sub-sampling levels and bit depth options for LLDV are dependent on EDID.



    USB Recovery Images for RTD1619BPD Players

    Below are recovery images for Zidoo RTD1619BPD players.

    Please be aware that use of these images should be a last resort - if you don't do it 100% correctly you could brick your player.

    Follow the instructions to the letter.

    Any recommendations for the VS10 settings? I am using an LG C2 OLED and am new to Zidoo and am struggling to understand the different VS10 settings. Thanks!

    With that TV I'd just stick to Auto, then you get everything native.

    I have a z2000 pro on the way, and wonder if there is a new control 4 driver or if it works with the driver for z1000 pro?

    I assume it'll work the same - I don't think the IP protocol has changed.

    Thanks, good to hear.

    Really stupid question on this new chipset/system… can it still use a custom EDID locally for LLDV, and more importantly, can/does it send an HDR infoframe to trigger HDR? I only ask because the options changed so wondering if this can negate the use of an HDFury device in the chain for a non-DV display.

    Zidoo really really need to add QMS to their next players so no need to think about the framerate for those of us with newer TVs like C3/G3 OLED.

    The EDID options are still the same and unfortunately still no ability to send an HDR message.

    Thanks for confirmation. Me and the HDFury VRROOM did not get on well. Had to send it back. Might try the Vertex2 at some point since it seems more stable at this point.

    Anyway… thanks sir.

    The vertex 2 is 100% stable, although I've every reason to believe that the Vrroom is too despite its stupid name.

    I kept having issues with audio not syncing up and having to switch to another port on my Denon and back to get it working or power cycle the thing. It was sporadic at first and then every time I started my system up. Went back and forth with support on Discord and unfortunately went nowhere. I even bought their cables so they would stop telling me it was the cable(s). This was a year ago so when the Vrroom was on very early firmware. At least I got a refund on the unit. :)

    So with the new player, it seems a downgrade for VS10? No outputting SDR, HDR, 10+ as "DV" anymore like so w/old player?

    Or, a HDFury is required for Z9X Pro to "see" a DV player and apply it for all formats?

    Nm, I saw your post in the other section:
    Looks like I'll need to wait for the native DV update to my AWOL 3500 projector to apply "VS10 to output all content as Dolby Vision".

    Outputting all content as DV (VS10 for all non-DV content) works. I'm currently doing so on my Z9X Pro.

    It's a step back from z9x if your display device doesn't support DV. I am currently using VS10 ( HDR output) on vivitek hk2288. hope zidoo brings VS10 for all content back soon

    The option is still there.

    …and now you don’t need a custom EDID if you want a non EDID supported VS10 output.

  19. When I use VS10 output for all contents, it seems like it Zidoo Z9X Pro has a glitch (the movie pauses) with DVDs converting to Dolby Vision (I have no 4K contents, all I have are blu ray and DVD).
    Does anybody else have this issue with playing DVDs using VS10?
    Is there any way to force Z9X pro to convert DVDs to DV and output them correctly?

    z9x pro won't show VS10 output DV option on devices that don't support DV
