    Hi Mark,

    Sorry for the simple question...but you are a digital GOD!:D

    I purchased the Dune HD Max Vision 4k which has the same RTD 1619DR chip. ISO files and many MKV files with DV all play smoothly (ISO files are flawless for DV FEL AND MEL).

    HOWEVER, there are a number of MKV DV files that simply wont play or lock up the player. It appears this may also be the case with Zidoo players reading through all the posts. I've changed a whole bunch of settings but nothing has worked. Am I alone in this camp or is it still hit and miss to play certain DV MKV files? It appears it's a constant software development process. Is there a way to convert an MKV file to ISO that anyone knows how to preserve DV?

    Any help or guidance would be appreciated. I've reached out to Dune support but they dont have a Community forum as extensive as this one with such amazingly helpful people!!

    Hi Sam,

    With the exception of the 76 minute issue as detailed here (which the Dune shares), there are currently no issues playing DV MKV I'm aware of:

    Although this is being worked on.

    There were some issues early on but they've been ironed out but they certainly didn't cause the box to crash.

    I also have a Dune Pro Vision Solo which does seem somewhat less stable than the Zidoo - very easy to cause an unrecoverable crash.

    These boxes are always in constant development - that's the beauty of them - this is pretty leading edge stuff and certainly not a safe and easy route that the big manufacturers take, so it really is constant iteration of features and improvements. I know this frustrates some people, but it's always been part of this side of the industry from day one.

    I don't know of a way to go from MKV Single Track Dual Layer back to ISO I'm afraid, although I've not looked into it - maybe ask on the MakeMKV forum?

    Interesting hypothesis by the way ;)

    Many thanks for your Swift respose Mark! Greatly appreciated. If i find any solutions i'll post them otherwise i may be buying the next Zidoo that rolls off the conveyor.

    Buy the way i was sold on the Dune as it does FEL and MEL playback for all ISO (and is very good). Does the Zidoo have that capability?

    I confirm that with the latest firmware, in a full blu-ray rip (LoTR) it can do Dolby Vision (shows up the DV logo in my LG CX), something that was not happening with the previous firmware
  15. Goodmorning everyone........... I downloaded and installed the latest Firmware (April Fool's) My problem is that, unlike all previous firmware, in the Dolby Vision part, I put "Auto" and practically the DV was enabled on DV contents, on the others, it followed exactly the characteristics of the various contents. Now this does not happen anymore, if I put "HDR mapping" (which logically should follow the contents, all the calibration with the probe that I have done gets crazy. If I put "Auto" as in previous firmware, I still enable the DV even with non-DV content. Since I prefer to see the contents like this, how was it done, now how do I go about getting to this ??????? Thanks in advance

    Not sure what's going on there.

    Firstly "Mapping HDR" converts all content to HDR10 using the Realtek engine - this is fine for HDR10 content but it does a bad job of converting SDR to HDR. I would not recommend using it unless all your content is HDR10.

    I just checked Auto and it works fine for me - all content is output in its native format.

    Have you tried a hard reboot using the rear switch?

    The on/off power switch on the back.
  19. No, I have not tried ............ What bothers me the most is that I would like to see the contents as they were made, but now, I have to see them in DV also on Auto. It is not possible that a person must necessarily see the DV if the content does not provide for it. Dolby Vision, on non-DV native content, is not synonymous with video quality ...........

    With HDR set to Auto you will only see DV if the movie is DV - Auto will always output the native format so if yours isn't doing that then something else is wrong...
