Dear all users of Zidoo mediaplayer,

We plan to have a Live stream for Zidoo application on 12 Nov , if interested to follow ,please WAB to 9092 1582 and we will broadcast the link 15mins before hand on 12 Nov.

The new firmware comes with separate Dolby Vision VS10 engine for both SDR and HDR content. I think the Dolby Vision VS10 engine for HDR content is a great implementation because it automatically defaults to Auto setting for SDR content. I’m skipping the LLDV for now.

Another new beta firmware is out yesterday…

I found an extremely serious bug (audio loss) with 80G firmware. Most of my mv clips are affected. Reported to zidoo forum and confirmed by a beta tester there. Beware.

1 Like

Thanks for the heads-up. What kind of “audio loss”? Care to elaborate? Does it affect only Dolby or DTS? Anyway I guess I won’t be updating this beta then. So have you downgrade the firmware to the last beta?

Majority of my music video clips (MKV) will lose audio after 2-3 minutes, while video continues to play. I have sent one if the clip to zidoo forum, and one beta tester confirmed the bug.

Yup, I have reloaded the recovery image & reinstalled 66G. Now all my MV clips play properly.

Hi, like to check if anyone successfully installed Singtel TV Go app on the z9x? If so, can share steps? Tks.

So far after testing for about 2 days, I can safely say that this is the best beta firmware v6.0.90 to date. I highly recommend everyone to upgrade it. So far, most of my 4K MKV files decoded in HDR10 and DV (MEL and FEL) played nice.

It appears that in the latest firmware (v6.0.90), some of the modes like Dolby Vision VS10 for both HDR and SDR have problem with “raised black floor”. Based on the chart I have seen from Zidoo forum (courtesy from the moderator Markswift2003), the Dolby Vision VS10 for HDR engine sported a “raised” white levels of 816 from 723 (correct white levels). No wonder the blacks for some of the movies not as contrasty compared to the previous firmware. This is very unfortunate as Dolby Vision VS10 for HDR is the best option for most projector owner as it is able to switch between SDR and HDR with great image quality before the v6.0.90. I guess we have to wait for another beta release to fix this.

As of now, only Realtek SDR.2020 and Dolby Vision VS10 LLDV/DV mode have the right black (at 64 for HDR content) and white levels (at 723 for HDR content). At the moment, selecting “Auto” is your best option…but this will revert to Realtek HDR10 and SDR2020 for HDR.

Downloading the Z9X firmware with official link is turtle speed, anyone has a mirror link or any kind soul can help to put the latest 90 google version of firmware into a cloud place for me to fetch? Appreciate for any help.
