ZIDOO Z10 / Z9s 4K HDR Owners Thread

Thanks all. I couldn't wait until the weekend so the Zidoo is now back up and running and appears to work well with some of the files that the Apple TV/Infuse couldn't use.

One strange thing I have found is that the Zidoo doesn't seem to pick up all of the files on the NAS drive. One of the files I was having problems with was the original Mission Impossible film. When I go into the library, there is a poster for 'M:I Collection' but it only has two films rather than all of them.

I have checked all of the other posters to make sure they have not been mismatched and also the 'Other' folder for the ones that have no match, but I can't see the files there.

Do I need to rescan to find these files, and if so will that undo the manual updates/rematches that I have done?
Try a rescan 3 times to find all your library etc
or check your on the latest firmware on your X9s ?

Make sure you’ve checked everywhere, like A,B,C tracks in the other mission impossibles and everywhere else. I think I remember it doing the same for me with those titles.

Hi,
Is it possible to make the hdd (connected via sata port) as default storage on Z9S? I want to use an app torrent and download directly to hdd.
Thanks

I had two freezes yesterday. The first was watching "Enemy at the Gates". It froze about a third of the way through. No controls on the remote worked. I had to shut off the Z9S and restart it. When I went back to the movie it resumed without problem.
Same problem later in the evening while watching episode 4, season 3 of the Big Bang Theory. Had to do the same as above.

Prior to this I downloaded and installed the latest update from the site. The process went smoothly and appeared to work fine.

After the freezes I followed the instruction to get to the developers section and shut off EDID based on posts I've read. But I don't understand what EDID is nor what it does...I'd be grateful for an explanation.
I use 2, 4tb/5tb WD EasyStore usb hdd's that are connected to the udb 3.0 inputs.

I've not had any freezes before so I'm a bit stumped.
Thanks for any help.

I've moved the hdd's from the usb 3 ports to the usb 2 ports and have not had a problem with a show freezing.
Thanks for the suggestion.
Really like my Z9

Do these players have the ability to play files automatically after each other? Eg S01E01, then S01E02 then S01E03?

Hi all,
What is the largest size usb external hard drives are you using? My largest is a WD easy store 5TB. I'm considering a large 10-14TB external. Is anyone using one this large.
Also what about sata drives? What are you using? How large, etc.
Thank you.

Installed 2.3.7 today...went well, no problems. It fixed one problem I had...at the end of watching an episode of a sitcom, Big Bang Theory, it would go back to the folder then black screen for 5 seconds, yep I counted lol, then back to the folder and ready for play...now it goes back to the folder and ready to play.
I did lose the avr display screen that would appear when changing the volume...not a big deal but a surprise.

Happy New Year !

Regardless if it supports or not you should still use hdmi connection hdmi 1.3 or 1.4
