    It worked! I am right in the middle of downloading and the screen says "update file successfully". Am I supposed to wait for the next instruction?
    And when will I know when it is installed sucessfully?

    The screen has several messages on it right now " checking update files exist" and "checking the package" and "verifying failed please check your package".

    Hi, this is a bug with this player and LG C9, the Zidoo looses synch when it outputs 4k 23.976 in DV, VS10 or LLDV.
    I have a dedicated thread about it, can you confirm your problem in that thread please and hopefully they will finally do something about it, thank you.

    What you think is normal has to happen before sales start.

    If I knew I was paying € 209 to be a beta tester, I might not have bought the device until 2021.
    As it develops with troubleshooting, the beta phase will probably not end until 2021.
    I have to put another player next to the Z9X because the Zidoo often can't play normal videos, that's ridiculous.

    Probably not the player for you then eh?

    Yes, I still have X8 and it plays everything without any problems. I'm very happy with the HT and image quality, but I don't want to be a beta tester ...

    My sincere advice is to hang on for a while - honestly, this is a great little box with loads of potential - yes there are a few issues to iron out, but the devs are working hard at it - in fact, bearing in mind it's now Sunday evening in Shenzhen, they're at it right now with a nasty nugget I threw at them before the weekend.

    There's a lot goes on behind the scenes as I keep saying, so keep the faith.

    Just to be sure, I do understand that this was a full disc rip and not a movie only, right?

    I ripped the same BD to full disc 3D ISO and it did NOT play whatsoever. With FW 6.0.35 mind you.


    I also ran some quick tests with "upgraded" FW 6.0.45.

    Things are worse? The remuxed 3D ISO of "Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice" will not play anymore with this latest firmware. The 3D ISO issues definitely have still to be addressed properly, and I think it's wiser to wait for a fix, rather than testing further.

    Also, the conversion from 4K DV/HDR down to HD SDR is not the same. It's more vague. And I can't get it right with whatever settings I try. Now, this bugs me because this player did a great job with this on earlier FW and I was keen on buying a second unit for my bedroom (where the Panny plasma is). Hope they will fix this again.

    Thereby, I encountered a new issue in the color of SUPs. They sometimes turn blue? Both in 4K as in HD. Strange.

    Further testing with 6.0.45 (for a HD screen, that is) seems useless. Downward compatibility issues rise, instead of being solved. Just have to be patient and wait...
     
  17. Little info .....
    I have read, I don't remember in what discussion that for now the upscaling part is missing ...
    Let me explain: having a TV with really good electronics (Sony with 4K HDR X1 Extreme processor mounted), the upscalig, is something I would like the TV to do (tests already carried out with the Z9s), I read wrong me, or is this possibility not for now?
    As always, thanks in advance and happy Sunday.

    Did you try setting Framerate mode to "Framerate and resolution? If I'm not mistaken the player will then output both source's framerate and resolution.

    I can imagine this would not work for PAL or NTSC video. Maybe also for cropped video. There are anamorphic video issues that still need addressing.

    Of course you could also set the HDMI output mode to the source's resolution, but I doubt you want to do that every time manually...
