    Thank you for the guide!
    I have an old 1080p projector , should I let Zidoo to do downscaling? If so I assume the below settings takes no effect as the device will only output 1080p, right? Thank you!
    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 ***

    I have an Epson LS12000 and I'm planning to try the Vertex 2 LLDV trick described in the PDF attached to OP. Are the settings in there appropriate for this projector?

    Max Luminance 1000
    Min Luminance 0.0001
    MaxCLL 1000
    MaxFALL 400

    Or should I use different settings?

    That's a 1080p non HDR projector right?

    So I'd go like this:

    Playback/Automatic frame rate/Frame rate mode: Match Frame Rate Only

    Display/HDR: Dolby Vision VS10 Engine (For All Content)
    Display/Color Settings/4K 50~60Hz: Priority YUV420 8BIT
    Display/Color Settings/4K 23~30Hz: Priority YUV422 12BIT
    Display/Color Settings/Non-4K: Priority YUV444 8BIT
    Display/Color Settings/HDMI Range: 16-235
    Display/Resolution: 1080p @ 23Hz

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

    Assuming you're using the LLDV EDID included with the box or another 1000nit LLDV EDID, then yes, these are the settings to use.

    Having reset HT4, I lost my TRAKT settings, since I want to keep track of what I'm watching: which boxes should I check??
    Thanks in advance !

    I only use the Zidoo for watching local content. Obviously you can't download Netflix and expect to get 4K with DRM restrictions but some apps do allow for 4k and apk can be used to upload to the Zidoo. My question is does the VS10 engine work for streaming content?

    maybe you are looking in the wrong places!
    4K DV, HDR10, 10+ and HLG files all play fine on Zidoo, they just need downloading first, not directly from streaming apps or low quality sources :cool:

    It appears to me you didn't understand a word a said. Nowhere did I say you couldn't play those files. I play all of those files locally. My specific questions if you are streaming via an app such as HBO Max or another does the VS engine work?
  14. Phil181

    you actually said: "Obviously you can't download Netflix and expect to get 4K", so perhaps that was not what you meant............. (but it was the part of your post I erroneously replied to).
    Zidoo's are not streaming players, so unless an app is somehow specifically designed to use the VS10 hardware, it won't do so.

    ZDMC is designed to use Zidoo hardware for local files but will switch to the Kodi software player for any Kodi apps installed.

    Correct. I said that I was referencing an APK you cannot download any type of APK for Netflix that will give you 4K streaming. That's what I was talking about and I'm not talking anything about Kodi. And I'm well aware that they're not streaming players, but they are Android players which means that you can download streaming apps. My question which still hasn't been answered is if you download one of these apps like HBO Max or for instance Hulu which offers 4K and does work on Android, will it stream with the VS10 engine? I'll do it myself. I was just curious if anyone happened to know, I don't think you really understand what I'm asking
  16. Phil181

    Phil181 Active Member

    the answer is still no, because those apps can't advantage of the Zidoo hardware........

    How do you know that? Are you saying that based off experience or what you think? The reason I'm saying that is because I have a dune player as well and when I set it to VS10 it does work on streaming apps that I have downloaded

    Perhaps someone might help me with this issue.

    I have a HDfury Vertex 2 connected between the Zidoo Z10 Pro with my JVC N7. I followed all instructions in the first post in this group and the image is great.

    However, in some movies, the image became too bright clipping too much the image. I'm sure it might be solved by tweaking the nits levels in the Vertex. I've done several attempts, but no significant results in the clipping areas.

    Any tips to improve this?

    Need a bit more info.

    Is this with a custom EDID (for example, using LLDV)?

    What HDR mode are you using on the Zidoo?

    Are you using DTM on the N7 or a static gamma?

    Are you using a custom gamma?

    Can you post a mediaInfo report from one of the offending files.
