    a Zidoo uhd 2000 costs $ 1200 Canadian, how much does it cost this one...

    it would have been better to have a replacement of Z9s before offering an expensive device with the new RTD1619

    they have forgotten that their success is due to a device like the X9s with a very attractive price / performance ratio...it is just my opinion

    90% of the people on my forums are not interested in the audiophile part, they just want a multimedia box to watch their films at an interresting price.

    The forum on the site zidoo is dead, no message from the teams of Zidoo

    It's a long time since mirror and others from Zidoo came to post messages or answer questions on the forum.

    Agree the X series is overkill for most users on here its aimed mainly for the Audio Buff with xlr ouputs etc that many dont or will ever use .
    It will sell a few 1000 units but Zidoo need to concentrate on the new Z 10 series with the new chipset that supports HDR10 + and poss ( Dolby Vision ? ) or the other formats .

    these smaller cheaper boxes will far outsell the high end zidoo boxes even if they bumped up the price for the new Video support etc .

    lets see a new Z 11 media box with this new chipset for the Cinema fan that most here are .

    Hi all,
    I've just post a message in Z10 section.
    As I said, I buy a Z10 to wait and see.
    And now, 3 weeks later, trust me when I say I will never buy zidoo brand.
    This is the perfect example of a chinese product. The hardware rox but not the software. And today, the software makes the diffence.
    Why waiting for a z11 box or a X series. If the software doesn't follow, the machine means nothing.
    During my search of a new box, I saw that type of machine was not very asking by people. I don't understand but it's the market.
    I will redefine my priorities and my installation for the future. That's all.

    Dave, you are right. I also will not buy their buggy trash again.

    In response to ThomasP, the USB 3 disconnecting problem appears solved for Z9S in 2.3.3beta so I think a fix for Z10 is coming very soon.

    In general, Zidoo are pushing substantial firmware updates on a regular basis.

    The issue with the usb3 ports exists since January 2019. More than 11 month later still no solution. Regular basis?

    Hi,

    Some people say that Dolby Vision might be missing from RTD1619 ...

    Will Zidoo RTD1619 devices have Dolby Vision ?

    Very bad news, without Dolby Vision the new Zidoo X is not an option for me.

    It's a 100% legal/license thingy. Nothing to do with HW capabilities. Dolby Laboratories simply does not like typical features media players come with.

    Hi,

    Good news and not really surprised by the information given by the Zidoo team today.

    Zidoo X will support Dolby Vision in addition to HDR10 and HDR10+.

    I doubt this will have a dual layer DV license for playing UHD DV rips.

    OPPO already have DV for playing UHD ISO/AVHCD from disk. I would rather expect a little improvement in PQ, when i compare my OPPO 203 to Zidoo player with RTD1296 there is always OPPO winner.

    Hello,

    About Dolby Vision support with RTD1619, maybe it's simply Dolby Vision support for VOD services ....

    see you
