Fair play to Zidoo, could have easily stopped supporting the older models.

Not Bad for a circa 3-4 year media box support .
how much longer it will last who knows .

Can i ask you something. How does the z10 compare to the X10 Picture quality wise?

Though i have both units but in different locations and connectivity etc
cant really comment as such .
But some say better but the Z10 has a few more settings for picture settings and i think projector connectivety .

But if any its not hugely noticeable if
but the unit is a more zippier machine and future proof at moment .

wether new update for x10 has changed on that front .......?

If i was upgrading id wait till the 1619 chipset z9x , Z10x gets released more of a jump and another tweak in Picture Quality and having Hdr10+ and poss
Dolby Vision of some sorts .

But will have to wait on that one and what it supports if its included .

I just installed an internal 1tb sata drive on my x10, does anyone know how to download to this drive?
Would be also my question. Now I have 2 external drives (2x4tb) and it works good, would be better to transfer the movies on a internal drive but with a mac i don't know how it works.

Might seem a silly question, but is the ZDMC v18.8 update included in the new v2.1.42 firmware?

Or does the ZDMC update have to be installed separately - and is it best to install ZDMC first?

ZDMC is seperately downloaded so i cant see why it wont work on its own
if not update firmware after ?

Still no fix for the aspect ratio issues?? :mad:
DVD TV series 16x9 plays back in 4x3 aspect. One has to keep changing the aspect ratio.

Nor has their annoying poster (that can't be turned off) ID probelm of assigning posters for home made videos and/or video downloads that aren't movies, TV series etc.

Agree.

There are two aspect ratios stored on the DVD disc - one in the VOB video file and the other in the disc's directory IFO file and they should be identical.

VOB (Video Object file) is the container format in DVD-Video media. VOB files are in the VIDEO_TS folder. MakeMKV rips these VOB files.

IFO file is the DVD information file used by DVD players etc. It contains information referenced by the DVD player to navigate and play the contents of the DVD. MakeMKV only analyses the IFO files.

For some reason the Zidoo player immediately switches from 16:9 to 4:3 when playing DVD TV series in MKV format. Not the DVD films, only DVD TV series. You can see it very briefly start in 16:9 (just a glimpse) then, for some odd reason, it switched to 4:3.

Strange.

You are the 1st person that confirmed what I thought. That's exactly what I have been seeing, but I originally ripped the DVD's in the VOB format, then converted them to mkv files.
Would ripping them into mp4 format make any difference??

The Chinese need to change their priorities and those annoying posters surely ain't it.

Carried out the firmware v2.1.42 installation without any hiccups. Did the usual complete power-down, pulled out the mains plug, left for 3 minutes, then powered back up again. X10 went straight through into Home Theatre - so all OK.

Noted now on Home Theatre v4.
