    I think that's right.

    My experience is that when RGB color values for PGS are the same, grey will stay grey in VS10 playback. However brightness is way too high, compared to non-VS10 playback of PGS. Even when PGS is correctly authored for HDR video (darker greys) VS10 engine produces too bright subtitles. Of course this can be corrected during playback with "Subtitle brightness slider" but it shouldn't be necessary in the first place.

    When RGB values start to differ, VS10 displays weird colors more & more. Which can become quite annoying. Especially when you are dependent on subtitles and therefor can't allow yourself to switch them off, you can start to dislike or even hate what you're watching. Awfull.

    For goodness sake fix the subtitle always on when playing DVD ISO files. How much more basic functionally is there?

    This product is not ready to be sold to consumers, I tested Spears & Munsil UHD HDR Benchmark.ISO and menu of the disc doesn't even show up, I try the same ISO on my Nvidia Shield/Kodi played with now issue.
    This one example of media that I am having playback issues.

    PGS subtitles are exactly that - a ProGram Stream - they are a series of images so the colour is whatever the colour in the image is - SRT on the other hand are simply text files - so they can be manipulated in terms of style, font and colour.

    So just unboxed this updated firmware to latest and so far not so good.

    I have HDR set to Auto, because i want SDR to be just that.
    I get HDR in all content when i play SDR and in the zido0 interface what is happening?

    Remember always reboot box at least twice and pull from the mains after firmware update etc .

    Not yet, but it will...

    There was an internal beta a while ago with DV support in ISO and BDMV but it made menus unstable so it was decided to release without ISO and BDMV DV support for the time being while the devs sort it out.

    Not a clue why it would do that - never seen that behaviour before.

    anything work on this unit bloody hell,
    yea strange just watched my first movie mkv with dolby vision and was great except one little problem, at the start the dialogue was slightly out of sync, i paused then restarted and was ok to the very end.

    Also if you set the playback timer display to time left on movie, the seconds jump quickly.

    Again, never seen that behaviour with an MKV DV file.
  18. This version reintroduced issues with HDMI CEC on my LG C6. The Zidoo wants to turn itself on whenever I try to access another device connected to my Marantz reciever. It was fun while it lasted.

    Hi, I too have an LG set and D&M receiver, although I have a Lindy cec less adaptor in the Zidoo it still messes with my TV receiver combination.
    I have had no option to connect the Zidoo to a smart plug, after powering down the Zidoo I say ‘Alexa, Zidoo off’ and all my problems go away, it is a sh*t state of affairs though, I have never known a box like it - I do think it is a Network problem.

    ive only noticed hdmi timing issues on mine since i upgraded my sony DN1080 to a denon 3700 reciever
    before that i had no issues with the timing and Echo turn on TV would turn on the Pana Z1000 , the Sony DN1080 and the Z9X fine everytime (tv is master on a power box with slaves for the other devices

    Now i have to turn on the zidoo manually to get tv and denon to fire up ,thou i still have to hdmi swap on denon to get back to the zidoo (weird since im sure a major seling point on the new deonons was their fast HDMI swapping to cause no issues swapping bewteen devices
