    Hi,

    Zidoo Z9X does a good job, I don't notice any banding under normal conditions of use with my movie collection (1080p remux/iso and UHD remux/iso) and i don't use the Smooth Gradation option on my Sony TV.

    Hello Choubs,

    How are you ?

    I'll talk about Ghostshadow's Justice League, it's the only one I have even if I can have other MKV DV profil8 movies with atmos soundtrack from him.

    Sony 77A9G
    Pioneer SC-LX704
    Zidoo Z9X FW 0.66
    Realtek developper (Playback Performance mode (experimental) Activate and Deactivated ''switched reserve less buffer space'' (thanks to DaMacFunkin)

    -----------

    In the first minutes of the movie, there is stuttering or/and Image freeze for a few seconds and the sound continue to works and it's random.

    I wrote this morning to Zidoo (Mirror and another person) to ask them if they are interested in having a sample for testing, I know that other people have already sent some but i think it would be good for Zidoo that they receive test files from different encoders.


    EDIT: Choubs has a Z1000PRO, is there something different in the video processing compared to the Z9X?

    See you

    Hi @OlivierQC

    I'm fine and I hope you too :)

    I got the whole Justice League movie back so I could test this week-end if I have stuttering.

    Great, thank you Choubs, for your information problems start within the first 5 minutes.

    This morning I tried back to the future I from Ghostshadow with the same result as Justice League.

    I suggested to Ghostshadow to make encodes in DTS HD and DD 5.1 :p

    There is no banding issue with Dolby Vision, in fact the VS10 engine handles chroma banding better that the Realtek one and that's pretty good on its own and will only exhibit using torture tests.

    If you see banding on DV sources, it's not the Zidoo that's introducing it.

    Hello,

    How can I say that, I have never had Dune devices

    On the Dune website their devices seem to use an RTD1619 unlike the Zidoo with their RTD1619DR, for me they don't have the same functionality, sorry Darren but we can not compare what cannot be compared.

    I will say the best is the one that satisfies you in your daily use

    See you

    Hi,

    @OlivierQC I have exactly the same issue as you, the image stutters when the Atmos audio track is used :(

    Not possible. Dolby Vision with BT. 2020 is oversaturated. Especially the red proportion is too high. You can see it most of the time in the skin tones.
