    Thanks! Never too old to learn. Zidoo deviates here from the masses as 24.000 is hardly used.

    Ignoring EDID is a risky thing and not recommended as it mostly causes more problems than it solves. Really meant for testing only.

    Developer options has been removed from 2.2.56 anyway so we cant access that option.

    Was on the .40 firmware last night and watched 2 episodes of AMZN 1080p the widow without issue.

    Updated this evening to this beta after seeing all the positive posts and tried to play the same files tonight and I get a lovely green screen :-(

    Anyone else had this issue?

    Looks like I’ll be downgrading.

    So far my experience is v2.2.56 works better with 4K (10 bits HDR) movies while
    v2.1.40 works better with 1080p movies.

    Looking forward for a firmware that can work flawlessly in both.

    If I have switch frame rate and resolution enabled I get a green screen on 1080 but if I change to frame rate only then it is ok.

    I can live with this but hope Zidoo resolve in the next update. Hopefully someone from zidoo is watching this thread!!

    Wrong setting: Just learned from gymnos here that with Zidoo P24 means 24.000 Hz and P23 is P24/1001. Change to auto frame-rate and it will work. Very confusing for me too. :confused:
    I think Zidoo needs to change this ASAP as 24.000 is hardly used and 24/1001 is common for all BD standards. :rolleyes:

    Was added to my review both as a warning and a flaw for Zidoo.

    After upgrade to FW 2.2.56 and Music player 3.0 for Z9S. Play this DTS file with noisy sound. Other DTS file ok. Old FW 1.9.7 and music player 2.0 can play all DTS file without noisy sound problem. Any idea why ?
    How to download back old music player 2.0 apk file. Need to find out FW or music player version causing noisy problem. So far can not find in website. Anyone can help ?

    Downloaded your file but it plays just fine on my setup using Music Player 3.0 for playback and RAW out to my AMP. Not a bad piece by the way (translated? let me love one at a time). Got an artist for me?

    Yes there is something special about this file as in fact it is DTS-ES Discrete with 6.1 channel output not 5.1 as usual. I have seen players having trouble with DTS-ES too. Have a few DTS-CD's with DTS ES Discrete tracks refusing to play.

    Last night, I watched another 1080p movie & experienced 2 times that while watching (time slot @around 00:11:30-00:13:00) ; it jumped back to previous menu screen. However after I rebooted the machine & played it a 3rd time, the symptom disappear!

    The movie is A Dog's Way Home (2019 1080p/24Hz MA5.1 hevc mkv).

    The issues I've had with this release have been with HT2 freezing & HDMI (dying) and at times noise on recordings which both issues are resolved by a reboot and I recently started to notice while playing movies from HT2 the Z9s unit doing a reboot on its own, very strange as I've never seen this occur before. I seem to be able to trigger these issues when going from the file manager, HT2 and HDMI screens no sure what the order is but it does seem to trigger it to happen.

    Still getting sparklies on 4K hdr content, more noticeable on dark scenes.

    Anyone else noticed this?

    I don’t think it’s the hdmi cable as it doesn’t happen when using the X9s with same files, could I have a faulty device??

    Attached media info of the last nights film and a previous film that displayed the issue.

    Video showing issue from a different film - check out Tom Hanks black tie

    Which fw is best without jerking playback for blu-ray and 4k video ? Sometime it stop many times by itself for 1080p.
    fw 2.2.57 also problem. Wasting a lot of time to test it out.

    this is definitively not firmware related - I would say it is the HDMI cable, but since you have tested the same cable and it works with the X9S, there is a great possibility there is an issue with the HDMI port in your Z9S

    This is what I was afraid off, but why does it not happen on 1080p/3d/Blurays etc only on 4k remux files.

    What warranty do these devices come with?
