Yep no niggles here. Pleased with some of the updates actually. I think you have to go into these things with eyes open. Best to do a little research and if it doesn't do what you want or has a problem that will annoy/affect you then don't buy it.

2024! I mean most of the providers don’t even support WiFi 6 as standard on the full fibre packages.

I’ve got Swish Fibre at the moment which is one of the only ones which does and the Plume network stuff is great having an app to check things. How the big three can’t offer the same thing I don’t know plus it also has the same upload and download speeds.

Unfortunately the place I’m moving to doesn’t have them :(.

Try
Edit movie to just Rage and then do a manual search for it and scroll on left side mini posters to see your listed movie on what H.T.v4 lists etc

Poss workarounds
Lindy HDMI CEC Adapter
Strips CEC from the HDMI signal.
Useful to eliminate problems with CEC/ARC. Female to Male.

are you using supplied zidoo hdmi cable ?
change to certified Quality 4K premium one

failing all that looks like your Zidoo settings are not right or matched to your screen
or your edid is req to see whats going on and best set up options .

Yes and thanks to you and Furnace Inferno for all your help, I was just about to post after testing it as it is now working as it should..I am so glad I didn't waste any more time trying even more changes before the Lindy adaptor arrived, maybe one of these should be included in the box or a note with an explanation as it must be causing others these type of problems.

I am very happy with it so far, it is great with my 3D collection and I now have DV as well :thumbsup:

If you get any Bluetooth Remote it can be used for the basic functions on your Zidoo and help navigation at least .
but wont power on unit .

Odd your now two remotes dont work . 😬😬
Dont forget keep Antennas connected & enable Bluetooth under settings plus you may have to navigate and locate your attached remote Etc .

has this been released for 1000 pro (non beta) ? (6.3.66)
I am confused, now see the newer 6.3.75 beta on zidoo site.


also re conversation from a week ago about import duty UK/EU.
EU, there is NO free allowance these days.
Many couriers take a huge fee for "customs" charges even when they should not.
It took me months to get paperwork package (zero value) I sent from UK to Spain via UPS, and get charges back. (25 euros). Also ebay uk package of £10 to spain, customs wanted 30 euros in charges. Told them to stuff it and return to sender. Normal post is ok.

On the matter of duty charges it is the case that everything sent to Belgium and vice versa to the UK is money drain . They are the worst in handling and charging :thumbsdow just ask Futeko . It's a pity .. they were great in handling and sending your packages but at that rate:(

The customs and couriers make it up as they go along. I know the UPS driver locally to me very well and he tells me there is warehouses of British goods still stuck from Brexit.

Yes, I purchase stuff from within EU these days where-ever possible.
Failing that get stuff sent to my sons in UK and can organise when over to bring back into EU.

Ok, thanks for clarification on beta, I will install 6.3.66 for time being then migrate when others have done some more testing (thanks) :)

I currently have a 12tb hd connected to my Z9x which works fine but I want to get a larger hd to connect via USB, anyone know if there is a max size this will take? I’m thinking of something like 18tb or so?

16tb is fine or the safer bet
you can go above that but be careful or avoid the newer 512e/AF or 4Kn types hard drives .

the latest i know of .
