    Zidoo was the first to offer BD menu support with a realtek RTD 12XX.

    In spite of best intentions, Zidoo is limited by Realtek and the capabilities of the RTD 12XX series.
    The other brands of multimedia box that uses the same chip (realtek RTD 12XX) have the same problems.


    -------------------------

    This feature has been improved after each new FW, we can notice a better compatibility with the different Film studio,
    faster loading, the support of the options of the BD menu (chapter, language, subtitle, etc ...) has been improved
    since the very first FW incorporating this feature.


    the pictures source come from internet, my system does not contain any picture content, here only for demonstration.

    -------------------------

    The main constraint is the seamless branching who not working with Blu Rays 1:1 full copies.

    it improved but not completely solved, Zidoo did its best with Realtek RTD 12XX.

    -------------------------

    To report also, with some videos files the menu does not appear despite the loading icon of the BD menu,
    I do not know if it comes from the video file itself or a limitation of the chipset Realtek.

    the loading icon appears and everything seems to work normally

    But instead of seeing the BD menu appear, the screen is black and nothing happens, we have to go back to the main page of HT 2.0

    Personally it's a small price to pay to have the pleasure of having the support of BD menu on a multimedia box in so little time.

    Important
    As Nice Monkey says, for those who have video files with multiple tracks rather than just chapters then it simply can not be played, this is the case with multiple episodes, multiple movies and above all concerts / music.

    See you

    Only partially can agree here. When the Menu not working is just an inconvenience yes, but on some disks with multiple tracks rather than just chapters then it simply can't be played. This is the case on disks with multiple episodes, multiple movies and above all concerts/music.

    Thanks for the information Nice Monkey,

    I do not think I have this kind of video file but more '' standard '' movies (ISO / BDMV)

    I added your comment in my last message

    See you

    Hi everyone,

    [​IMG]

    I'm talking about HT2.0

    It contains a lot of customization options, it is better to follow the link to learn more, I will not be able to list everything.

    https://www.zidoo.tv/Poster

    As mentioned before, HT 2.0 has improved over time and it will continue to evolve over time.

    Nothing is perfect in this world, but HT 2.0 offers an excellent experience even if there are things has improved.

    I will not be objective because I like the design of HT 2.0 and all its options.

    the pictures source come from internet, my system does not contain any picture content, here only for demonstration.

    Hallo, I have a movie with English LPCM 5.1 / 48 kHz / 4608 kbps / 24-bit audio, and sound is a white noise with some shadows of original sound, do you know why or which settings I have to do for a clear sound?

    their ZIUI and HT 2.0 improve over time, even if it's not perfect.

    what bothers me is the problem with seamless branching, I hope Realtek has solved this problem with their new 1619, because for RTD1295/96 it's dead.
