    See Z9X for updates and findings.

    Yes Google Play Store will work.

    I am sure. But how? There is still no apk for Android 9 or have i missed it?

    Another point. I installed the new Kodi 18.8. Installation was no problem, but no chance to play normal mkv with 1080p DTS. Started and stopped. No sound, too. VLC seems to work.

    @Nice Monkey

    I have a Z1000 Pro and i think it would be a mistake to install a FW from the Z9X

    By the way, the Z1000 Pro looks great and works flawlessly. Until now everything i gave him was played well, the picture quality is superb. The old hdd from my Z10 was recognized without a problem. For me just root is missing at this time because i prefer the use of Kodi with the wrapper.

    Please re-read. Did not suggest to do so. Patience is a virtue. :p

    But having exactly the same motherboard it probably will just run with some flaws (Fan and Front Display). ;)

    Also corrected a previous entry flagging Z100 Pro as a High End model now with the Black GUI. :oops:
    The difference between Z10 Pro and Z1000 Pro got even bigger. If it can play Audio Gapless? My choice would be easy.

    I will test if Gapless works. Have your credit card ready :p

    Addon: Sorry, no chance. Gapless is not working ... :(

    I have no problem with fan and front display.

    Original FW with Black GUI? Anyway got the impression Gapless is still work in progress.

    Will ask more precise on which models it will come: High End or HiFi High End?

    I thought you had enough of Zidoo products and no support for ZDMC .......
    And poss Kodi now on the new Z series .

    what is your logic here now on buying a more expensive product now ?

    Maybe i wanted to give Zidoo a second chance? But the new start is not so succeeded. Lets wait and see if Zidoo is able to correct the bunch of problems like missing playstore, smb problems, gapless audio ... i am still not angry because the official date of sale was tomorrow.

    Gapless Audio may not come to the Z1000 Pro
    Only High End models.

    But will wait and see if Zidoo confirms this 100%

    In fact Z1000 Pro is a High End model now! Asked Zidoo to be more precise about it.
    For sure the current FW does not support it neither with Z1000 Pro.

    Then the Z1000 Pro is not Higher enough in terms to warrant Gapless playback
    So far the X at the moment to have it X20 Pro ?
    or the newer models on the horizon ?

    Which firmware do you have? The 22 (last OTA update) has no playstore integrated. Or is there a way to install it on my own?

    Received my unit today and still playing with the settings.

    2 issues:
    - Dutch is my main subtitle, just started a 4k rip but the subtitle is not downloaded!
    - not all my movies are shown in the posterwall after selecting all, not sure what the split criterias are into movies, blu-ray and 4k as the number of titles per item is not correct
