    Hi Zidoo, I just purchased X20 player and I'm just amazed how good it is. I was hesitating between Oppo UDP-203 and X20. My friend has Oppo so I can say, X20 is more than worthy opponent. I love my player more and more every day. It plays perfectly anything I throw to it. I'm just missing one function and that is "Zoom" when playing movies. I would like to ask, if will be possible to add this function in any future firmware update. I use player on my home cinema screen and I like to fill screen a bit more. I think that will be welcome function for more of us. Thanks a lot.

    Hey

    That would be great if they could sort that out, i used to zoom my Popcorn Hour A500 in a little just to reduce them bars by half, i just got my X20 before Christmas liking it alot

    I don't want to disappoint you guys, but Zidoo doesn't care about you and your problems with missing zoom functions.
    Just look here http://forum.zidoo.tv/index.php?threads/my-findings-with-the-zidoo-x20.43311/page-2
    But don't worry, it is absolutely normal for Zidoo. Remember - you are dealing with the support of Zidoo... What Iconbit can do in 2009 and Dune can do in 2013 is an impossible task for Zidoo in 2018...

    I am coming from Popcorn Hour C-200. There was ZOOM function too. It was possible to adjust it in real time while playing movies, so I don't think it's was dificult for procesing. It's was 8 years old machine with much slower procesor. I'm not sure if that function is possible for 3D Blu-ray movies, but for regular avi or mkv should be possible. Doesn't have to be fluent, but for example 3 different steps (15%, 30%, 40%). Futeko please have look at this. You made great player and this would be welcome function.

    I completely agree. Zoom function is an absolutely natural function for any media player. Zidoo just must to make this feature. Excuses like "Image processing is very difficult" are just mockery of users. ZOOM IS EVEN IN ANCIENT MEDIA PLAYERS, PRODUCED OVER 5 YEARS AGO !!!!

    My first player was the Popcorn Hour A-100 which is over 11 years old now and that had Zoom function, when zooming in the picture quality stayed the same, i only zoomed in 109% as i thought that was the most optimal at not cutting anything important off at the sides like credits etc

    Yeah. But task decided by Popcorn Hour A-100 over 11 years ago can't be decided by Zidoo.:mad::mad::mad::mad:
    An explanation is just super -" Image processing is very difficult. I don't think we deserve to spend too much resources on this feature."
