Hi all. I've just purchased a Z9X to replace my Z9S, which has served me fantastically.

Regarding DV movies, is it best to have them in a BMDV folder or converted to mkv?

Thanks
The latest beta firmware will play DV in MKV and BDMV if played direct (not from main BD menu) either from file structure or ISO.

Beta version v6.2.0 for Z9X/Z10 Pro/Z1000 Pro/UHD3000(April Fool version)

Note: ignore mention of April Fool in link. It's just that it was released on April 1st!

You can add your on Art / Poster to a movie / tv show etc
long press on the existing wrong Poster art then scroll to add own and choose from your usb location etc .

( if my memory serves me correct )

Quick question on what happens when you have two versions of the same film. How does the Zidoo deal with that? I'm thinking if you have a UHD and 1080P version. Should you have separate folders for each and will it give each a place on the wall. Or do you have both files in the same folder and can choose which to play?

Just trying to get everything set up ready for monday when I will be ordering a Z9X

The later one you mentioned !
On movie wall it show you in small box as such 1080p and next to it the 4K version .
You just click on what version you wish to play .

No just some Random mv

Only thing i can suggest is remame Music to the Artist video and see if Zidoo finds a poster art of the Artist .
Or upload an image of the video yourself .

Got my Z9X yesterday and all is good except one thing that is a bit of a dealbreaker. Can no longer get ARC working which I use all the time for my TV apps. Tried unplugging everything, resetting etc. So far haven't managed. CEC is off in the player. Frustrating as otherwise very happy with it.

Hello Markymile, this is a very annoying bug and Zidoo doesn't seem to care, but you have a cheap solution that worked for all of us on Amazon : Link

Just setting up my first ever Zidoo player. Is it normal to have to increase the volume far more than normal on my receiver for some audio tracks, such as Atmos/DTS X etc ?

Hi congrats
first make sure Zidoo remote Volume is set at max ( normally for just stereo sound for old movies etc )
I find Dts Hd Master Vol has to go up a few notches on my Av Receiver
compared to other Audio formats so yes .

Audio sorted.

Just need to fix black levels. Both SDR and HDR blacks are too black, no shadow detail. Using with an LG CX. What HDR settings are most people using for HDR and SDR? I can change using the LG picture settings to change things but wanted to check I have the Zidoo set up as best as can be, then take it from there
