None of the firmwares will avoid warranty claims
unless you brick it .
but most can be resolved from a brick !
and is it Futeko you purchased from ?
would help out regardless if .

Yes. Futeko mate. I don't mess around with any of my AV gears. Will check Beta and give it a go.

Its fairly straight forward to do just let it fully download to 100% then press ok to install
then it will auto boot up to home screen eventually .

( please wait till its fully loaded and on to zidoo Home screen first after firmware install )
Do not power off yourself !

Then you just need to reboot box a few times to re set itself etc

It has nothing at all to do with the dynamic frame rate display. It corrects the player not correctly detecting 23.976Hz frame rates. The player now correctly detects them and outputs content with its native fame rate.
I don't think I had that problem. Everything seems to have reported correctly on my TV.

So did the upgrade. Response time feels a tad slower than before.

Glad to see live bit rate pop-up with the film poster but it is not clear if its showing video + audio bit rate or just the video bit rate. Wish they showed one for video and one for audio.

You may need to reboot box a few times or power off
as far as i know there both for video Bit rate only .

1 Bit rate ( The Average )
2 Current Bit rate readings Live

What ive deducted

Apple TV box does but its a long winded process to get developer HUD activated especially if you are outside Apple ecosystem.

I doubt Android by default offers this? If this is the case then it will be down to individual apps. I have about 4 or 5 different players but I haven't checked.

They have to implant bitrate pixies into the GPU. The pixies are experts at appraising the bitrate and use magic to enable them to get the player to display it :lesson:

Still no trailers though.


Trailers have now started to appear for some titles, but not for all. I'd not exactly call what the player is finding as being a trailer for all of the entries though. Some of the videos appear to be anything the player managed to find including the name or part of the name of the film? It's like randomly watching stuff posted to YouTube.

I wonder how long before the Dune players get asked this request ?

Apple TV 4K developer HUD. Once enabled, we can see the tech bits on any streaming app.

Btw, this is very useful to detect incorrectly encoded streams. For instance, Devil Wears Prada is listed as 4K HDR10 on Disney+ but it's actually wrong tagged as the video output shows SDR with HD bit rates

Sample screenshots

That might explain the issues with some other Disney+ not HDR titles that Vincent found in the past. Actually thinking about it, I think he said the same things after analysing the output. If that is the case then it might be deliberate.

The audio format indication is totally dependant on what info is added to the file name by a user. The player has no ability to read this from the header to automatically determine what should be divulged via the poster wall. I could make it look as though all my titles have Atmos is I so wished by simply adding truehdatmos to the file name. Note that you'd also need to add the channels so that the 7.1 appears beneath the format. Adding them relative to Atmos and or DTS:X is a bit pointless though. Atmos is object based and not channel based. The 7.1 is in reference to the TrueHD or DD+ element of the audio package that the Atmos metadata is accompanying. There's no such thing as 7.1 Atmos.

Hi

Is it possible to connect an external USB 3.0 Blu ray reader to play movies with Dolby Vision? Can Zidoo Z10 Pro recognize and read the BDs? If yes, does it keep the DV or HDR settings?

From what I gather then yes, this is possible. I've not tried it though.

It will not apparently play orginal protected discs though and only copies with the protection stripped?

Given that you'd need to have copied the oroginal disc and then stored it as an ISO on another disc to be able to play it, I'd suggest it isn't worth the hassle involved. The players will read files stored on optical discs though.

My idea is to have it attached via USB to the Zidoo Z10 Pro and have the Zidoo read the external source, and play the Blu ray with the BD menu settings, . If this is possible (I do not know) then should it be able to reproduce all the HDR settings? Meaning keeping HDR10 and Dolby Vision as is ? Again, I do not want an external blu ray reader to play the movie, just use it as I would use a USB pen drive or external HDD. Again can anybody confirm me it's possible? And also with the HDR/DV settings?
