How do you do this for eg music videos?
What is eg music videos ?
Somekind of custom category. Not only Movies or TV Show, just something else like Concerts or Documentary.
you talk about ICON ?
How do I attach a folder or source to a category?
I do not link a category to a folder, I simply create folders by category and I copy all my tv shows in the folder that has the name ''TV shows'' for example... as I did a few years ago on kodi to have a Disney, pixar, etc ... folder on the main kodi page with Aeon Nox
This is a good question McBluna.
I have my Tv and Movies well set up, however I also have a large collection of BD, DVD and MKV Music Concerts and Video collections.
I would like to create a Category for this (Perhaps eg 'Performance' from the above screen shots) and in this category add my sources of the Music collections.
How can I achieve this?
Keep up the good work and informing people on inf etc
And of course there are no signs of Anger in your posts
Quite the opposite
From the Data Model of the HT app it's easy but I'm looking for a GUI solution. In case it's just not implemented I'll create a tool for it.
Thank You, That would be Awesome!
What is the 'Data Model' of the HT app?
I call it 'Database Model'. It's the structure of Home Theater SQLite DB. SQLite is not a real Database, because it doens't support foreign keys.
I've created this overview by analysing the database and the app.
Thank you Delucas
At each of your interventions on the forum you impress me... A big thumbs.
The Ghostshadow member of the homecinema-fr kindly sent me an MKV DV test file :
A special thank you to him
MKV DV works fine with Zidoo (it's DTS HD soundtrack)
I am not an expert but here is what he explained to me,
It has several movies in this format and the Z9X has no playback problems. (with FW 0.35)
The x265 DV profile 8.0x allows you to play them in HDR if your player does not have Dolby Vision support.
The next step is the encoding of the movie '' Back to the Future 3 '' in DV and HDR10+ format, we should have news in the next 24 hours.
I'll keep you informed
If he has time he will do more test files.
He told me that the French are the first to have been able to create an encoding in x265 mkv DV.
I tested on my Z1000 Pro (v6.0.46_G) with a Sony KD-65AF8 TV and a Denon AVR-X2400H AV amplifier a sample of the Midway movie in Dolby Vision Profile 8 in .mkv format made by a member and everything works perfectly
Edit : We tested the same file
Test all movie with DV and Dolby Atmos not 1,2 minutes only
This is what Ghostshadow (who generously donates the test files) does
Here is a new one
Unsurprisingly, the zidoo Z9X reads the test file without any problem,
GhostShadow has the full movie and no issues with the z9x.
Remember to activate Playback Performance mode (experimental) if you choose the Atmos soundtrack and deactivated ''switched reserve less buffer space off''
With this one which has a Dolby Atmos track, you have to follow the DaMacFunkin procedure (special thank you to him and Ghostshadow) so as not to have the problem of desynchronization when using the Atmos track.
Realtek developper (Playback Performance mode (experimental) --- Activate

SQL foreign key constraints introduced in SQLite version 3.6.19 (2009-10-14). Almost 11 years ago. Using foreign key constraints or not will not change Database Model(terms).
Between nice analyzes of HT database, now need some to write tool to import from MySQL Kodi/ZDMC database.
