    Been a little busy work wise but just unpacked and a few photo’s of unit
    Reset hole between hdmi ports note .
    Remote i compared with X10 remote and the buttons are bigger and ruberised center direction button is all in one section and a learning remote which takes 3 x triple AAA batteries is bluetooth and ir also .
    The X20 is heavy unit about the same size as an Oppo 93 blu ray player approx and very well made and finished .
    Power lead is a 3 pin kettle lead as seen in photo and the 4 x underneath feet are of a alloy silver finish with ruberised / foam at bottom .

    it seems there is only a new FW for X20, not for X20 PRO

    About banding i found something and i think there is a problem with their HDMI range option.

    in fact there is a probleme since the Fw 1.4.12, when zidoo added HDMI range option and that goes on with the x20....

    @DELUCAS Did you make any tests with the 17.6.1 ZDMC regarding quality playback of local video files? Auto frame rate switching, HD Audio, 4K, etc...

    If you can confirm that the SD/DVD aspect ratio bug is fixed, it would be nice. Did they add any aspect ratio/scaling options this time?

    Could the owners comment on the heat and above all the noise produced (fan + HDD´s) using dual HDD´s inside? The X10 is relative good at that.

    How does X20 compare here? For a top Music Player noise made by the box itself is crucial. ;)

    Fan are always off Permanant on my X series as i use ssd drives . :)
    Not that it helps your question :(

    Hi all,

    I have 2x HDD 7200rpm and the x20 does not heat and the noise of the fan is equivalent to my Egreat A11 ... Very discreet.

    See you

    Presuming we will be going Android 7.1 very soon
    Will fixing issues on 6.1 etc be a waist of time or are they easily transfered on to 7.1 as kinda on the same written software as such ?

    As 7.1 will bring its on bugs id imagine .
    So start a fresh on Android 7.1 and go from there . [ if we are going there very soon ]

    Or is written / resolved software easily ported over to the new O/S ?

    My x20 has not arrived yet. But I'm interested in which hard drives you recommend to the device, if browsing the covers in HT and ZDMC is smooth and scrolling the films forward, the back is smooth?

    a 5400rpm hard drive it's perfect, quiet and does not heat up
