Could this be added to the OP, so one doesn't have to 'hunt' for it?
I have a X10 with F/W v2.1.14 that was updated from 1.4.4
There is NO ZDMC or Kodi v17.6.1 installed. Since these came loaded w/ Kodi, is there anything special I need to do or know to re-load that software??
In the kodi.wiki/view/Android_hardware page under Realtech 1295 this is stated;
I now question using the Kodi software.
After reading thru this thread, I see that Kodi can be installed, but I did see some issues as I was going to ask if I had to use the Zidoo version.
ZDMC from this thread is optimized for Zidoo boxes with Realtek chipsets. Zidoo video player is a default player and Kodi player set as secondary for some extreme cases. You can change skins and build database of media files just like Kodi.
@videobruce, why do you want install Kodi? If you must see this thread for newer versions of Kodi:
Unless you are looking for some newer database functionality of latest Kodi releases you probably wasting your time. Kodi player is not working well with this hardware and newer releases from the link above are particularly bad in playback (2 frames per second!).
Stick to ZDMC.
Thanks for the reply and the link.
My logic is/was it's the universal and newest version. I will scope out that other thread.
@Bruce: i have shared my experinece with Kodi on the Zidoo in the "General - Guides and FAQ´s" Section.
Will we ever see another update of ZDMC update? Or is the 17.6.1 the last we'll ever see for this line?
Correct its now Leia 18.4 at moment
17.6.1 is old hat so to speak .
So zdmc will be 18.. if they support it to run on Zidoo .
actualy kodi 18 Leia is still in prerelease ( at least on android ) 17.6 is still the recommended one
