    I'm thinking about to get a Z9X, but I didn't find solution a possible issue.
    I use stereo amplifier, and I'm afraid the center channel's level will be low.
    Is there any option or something to boost dialogues volume? Is this an issue? I don't want to listen on the tv. I want to use optical out.

    Hi everyone, I need help: I'm planning to buy a zidoo z9x..now I have a zidoo x9s but sometimes x9s doesn't recognize hdr video (so it reproduce with washed colors). This happened to any other prior x9s/now z9x ownder? Z9x fixed this thing (I think yes, but I ask...)?

    I have another question: I'm alterning x9s with plex media server, but Plex when I reproduce hdr files can't reproduce correcly when .pgs/.vobsub subtitles enabled (just .srt works without problem). Zidoo x9s can reproduce hdr files with .srt AND .pgs but .vobsubs disappear in the list. Zidoo z9x can reproduce all subtitles formats in hdr playing?

    Thanks to everyone.

    Well, I guess I asked for it...
    Thanks for confirmation, McBluna. I now remember having seen that screen before way earlier, but plainly forgot.

    Hello, the last days ziddo { fw v6. 1.05) doesn't update Home Theater 4.0 with new movies I add. Also I don't see the update dots on the right down corner.
    Through Media center I can see the movies.

    Any idea?

    I see this very occasionally but it then seems to sort itself out - just select the source in HT4, press <menu> and hit "Update"

    Personally, I regularly have to manually update some of my hard disks, which are marked '0'!
  10. mka is not a common audio format just for muxing/demuxing mkv .......

    Maybe for you. There is a large group of matroska adepts having audiofiles and music stored within mka. The container is tremendously versatile and is eagerly made use of.
    Multi-codec & -track support, tagging options, and the much appreciated embracing of attachments are not easily found in other 1-file soundformats.
    Since mka shares an identical construct with mkv, it rather baffles me Zidoo not supporting it.

    I'm interested in whether Zidoo HOMETHEATER can find covers for these films ?!

    Can anyone try this out?

    Can you rename a movie for me With a period between the words? Will Zidoo find cover?

    Example "Breakthrough.2019.2160p.Bluray.mkv

    And TV Series
    Example: "Fargo.S04E03.1080p.mkv

    Thank You

    Yes - it finds both those titles as named above.

    The dot acts as a delimiter so in the case of the .2160 and the .1080 it uses those to display resolution badges on the fanart page.

    Thank you
    That was only due to the sample with 1080p and 2160p.
    I've heard that movies can be good at Zidoo, but there are problems with series. Will Zidoo change anything here?
    Unable to sort films and series separately? How about PLEX? or does everything have to be in one cover area?

    I only use movies and it works great for me. As far as I know TV is ok as long as you name correctly - ie SeriesName - SxxExx.ext

    The biggest issue, as with any scraper, comes from file naming.

    You can sort films from Series - there's a section for each and you can create custom categories too.

    I stumbled on something. Initially for other testing purposes, I created a full SBS (3840 x 1080) 3D mkv file out of a 3D-BD iso. However, I just gave the file a go with the Z9X. It played flawlessly.
    So, for those who like to playback/create full resolution SBS, it may be nice to know that this is possible. Note that I only tested with x264 encoder. X265 is on my to-do list.
    Also, for now, the mkv is created without subtitles. Proper 3D subtitling has its caveats to this type of video. These first need tackling.
  20. Never heared of Audio Streaming Bridges supporting mka :) I have an Auralic Aries, a SBT, ROON endoints.............mostly stereo files (I use FLAC why use an additional container?)

    OK, Cocktail Audio supports it.....but questions stays why an additional container?
