ZIDOO Z10 / Z9s 4K HDR Owners Thread

You can always add the usb in your Zidoo to your computer as a network share and then send the firmware (and other things) to the usb and update that way.

Hey guys, silly question. How do I use a powered 8TB external hard drive with my Zidoo? Currently I have 3 4tb usb drives plugged into it directly but I now have an 8tb powered one I want to use.

Once I have turned of the zidoo how do I go about turning off the WD 8TB without risking failure as it's not connected to a pc? I usually turn off all my home theatre stuff at the wall each night so won't that risk damaging the drive if it's connected to the Zidoo?

When the Zidoo powers down it un-mounts the USB hard drives, the USB hard drives then power down themselves.

No need to switch the 8TB USB hard drive on/off - just leave it :D

Is it possible to output video from the Z10 to a monitor?

I've got the Z10 connected to a Dell U2419HC with the supplied Zidoo HDMI cable, and the PC connected to the monitor via display port.

Although the Z10 is displaying 1080P (the Dell is a 1920x1080 monitor) on the front LCD screen instead of the 4K I get when outputting to my 4K TV, I don't get any video output from the Z10 to the Dell monitor.

Any ideas?

I should be able to do that for you ;) PM me.


hi guys, I really don't understand if zidoo Z9s is compatible with Netflix....if not it would be possible to connect a fire stick 4K to hdmi in...or maybe connect stick to avr? ....i need to see netflix through projector ( of course movies and series in 4K ) which is my unique device in 4K...thanks a lot


Active Member
1. Those 'Firesticks' (or similar) are for USB ports, not HDMI,
2. I use to get Netflix to work with the X10 (that I have), but since Netflix (and others) require a 'relationship' with the devices manufacture, it was only available in SD which was a non-starter.

Unless Zidoo is 'partnered' with these 'services' or someway has a way around that, SD would be the best if it is still possible.

Anyone else chime in here?


Distinguished Member
Firesticks use HDMI port and powered from the USB


Perhaps you know if the Stick Is rechargeable? Or needs to be Always connect to AC? I ask because ill Need to connect a lan adaptator to that micro usb


Distinguished Member
Lots of information on the internet about these just use your best friend GOOGLE>
