    You may make claims to the shop that sold you the players, next you can always try to claim the factory (Zidoo in this case) .

    This board (and most similar others I know) is run by volunteers including beta-tester who are are just other paying customers but willing to help development and assist each others to get the most out of their product.

    Hello dear forum members.

    Can the X9S record the dolby digital and DTS (not the HD type) raw audio streams, and/or multichannel PCM as well? What happens if I feed a DD, DTS, or multichannel pcm 5.1 soundtrak into the HDMI in? Will it accept it for: 1) recording/streaming, 2) passing it as is through the HDMI out, so my AVR will still be able to decode it?

    I'm seriosly considering buying the X9G but all of my AVR 5 HDMI inputs are occupied already. So I want to hook the X9S to one HDMI instead of cable box, then hook the cable box to HDMI in of X9s. I can live without multichannel recording, but I must have multichannel decoded from cable box by my AVR (will the modded apk offered here help with this?)

    I've asked this question on seperate thread, but no answere yet

    (Sorry for the bad English)

    Thank you for the reply.

    Just to make sure I understand. A 1080p HDMI signal with multichannel sound fed to the HDMI in, when viewed at full screen will output as 1080p with video re-sampled (hence the loss?), but with the original raw multichannel audio? Can you please provide little more detail about how much quality loss we're talking about? What is effected? reslution, pixelation artifacts, sharpness, color, noise? Can you etimate the loss in raw percentage?

    Must say something. Zidoo X9S advertisement has fooled us all!!!
    There was no word about NOT being capable to record over HDMI with HDCP. Their ace in a sleeve was this capability! No one will buy this device if not having this option. For less then 100$ you could buy anything you want. Even Xtreamer Prodigy 4K was fair enough to admit the truth - Yes you can record everything they said to me, but I did not believe, I have fallen on Zidoo marketing. Yes, I am donkey, I am Pinocchio...shall I be a real boy one day?! Of course not because geeks took my gold coins already. ..Money? Is this bother you Pinocchio? No he said. I am sad because of lack of trust!

    Of course, there is always solution for problem by using cheap Chinese splitter but you have to find right one!

    In a code there should be some info about CCI (Copy COntrol Info). If number is 00 then its open for recording. If 01 then it is HDCP protected. This depend from Cable TV company signal.

    The issue with HDCP is something that happens in 99.9% of the devices out-of-the-box. It's not a Zidoo marketing trick. Mind you, you can record ANYTHING that comes from the other device. If there is issue with HDCP, blame the other device. If Zidoo was having a HDMI In recording option with HDCP cracking ability, I can ensure you that the time of such device in the market would be very short. As javarix said, you can overcome this with a splitter. But as you can see, a splitter is a splitter and not a recording device, this is why you see them on the market.

    Its a pity that everything on this World is brought by force. Small people has only an option to obey the law. Otherwise, chains are ready. Today, there are no chains or forced labor but there are penalties by paying the fee. When I was a kid, we had an analog signal and recorders to save something for the future. Future means some period of time when you needed to take a look of something we call memories. Lovely memories... Someone very young said to me "Who needs recording option nowadays?". Well WE DO, I said. We, people who have inheritance, customs, families and of course memories to be saved for generation that will come after us. Not some hedonists and free riders! I asked him "Why do you make selfies and publish this garbage in public?" He had no answer. His entire generation had no answer! So, if you forbid something tell us why. Not to put us with the blindfold in front of guns. Why and Who has the right to prevent anything?! Only God or Creator himself, I suppose. Do we have more then one God today? Probably YES.

    Being creative today is a crime. Breaking the rules is the crime. Isn't the crime in being greedy?! Not by the human laws but YES by the laws of nature!!! Never forget who we are and where we are going.

    o_OSince I have to take zidoo with the x9s in protection. Zidoo does not advertise the x9s device HDMI IN recording a copy-protected hdmi signal can be recorded.In the normal case, one should be able to record everything with a hardware hdmi splitter. Zidoo is not to blame. But member cineclub has helped with his hack. this works perfectly. only it is the same as that of the firmware. If the hdmi in app has a problem or something does not go then also the hack since it is the same apk. :)But no matter it works without hdmi hardware splitter only with hack...

    In some countries there is the possibility to make copies for your own use - not business or resale. It is therefore the law of the state or country in which you live.
