To movie78, I'd say pick up a Q5 instead as it's a proven 3D player for Kodi, plus as several have reported with excellent (Oppo-like) PQ.

I would have bought the Q5 long time ago,but 8GB storage space is the reason why i didn't buy one.

Quote:The M3/Q5Q10's 8GB internal flash is split into 3 partitions.

Two partitions under INTERNAL STORAGE in Settings - Storage @ 1.94GB and 3.71GB. Total 5.65GB.

And one hidden partition which contains the Android OS and pre-installed apps, taking up the rest (approx 2.4GB).

So total free space at the beginning should be ~ 5.65GB.

i have not problem, android box it's not like phone , i have max installed 10 not need more.

I have the Tronsmart Orion R68 that I got for $50 from there introductory sale. The SoC seems to be pretty good, but like the other Rockchip TV boxes, it can't passthru Dolby or DTS via HDMI from Kodi. It also grabs a different MAC address on each reboot, this causes it to get a different IP address on the network on every reboot. Last major problem, only 2 gig of allocated storage, I can't add all my basic apps because of no room.

I hope Zideoo is not all talk.

If anyone is interested in how my R68 performs for me, I am posting links to my videos.

One last comment. I use my Android boxes as my front end for my PVR/DVR, and this R68 box plays the HD mpeg2 streams very well. Live TV streaming is the hardest thing for these inexpensive boxes to do. I am using my $35 MK808B Plus running OpenELEC and tvheadend server as my PVR/DVR backend.

Here is another video showing my setup with this box.

Good videos,but this thread is only related to FULL 3D and HD Audio.

Can you test that on you media player?

Thanks!

Cancelled my Zidoo X6 pre-order. Gotta resist these new toys (not very good at it) Tongue. Sticking with RPi2 as it mostly works well & provides that seamless 3D experience all within Kodi.


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - movie78 - 2015-09-11

After almost a year, you will think they would drop the price on the Q5.


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - looun - 2015-09-11

i do me test with my favorites 3D iso movie: pacific rim, star trek , transformer ecc and now:

- 3d is amazing ! perfect! no ghost!
- more 3d deep and effect
- picture quality is increase , with my plasma i seem have oled !

i have playback yesterday first part fo Mad Max: Fury Road with old firmware(it's became late so i had go to sleep ) and today i playback second part of film with new firmware, there are visible improvements of 3d and picture quality.

For me now Q5 is A+ for local file , the only missing with this box is better support for kodi video addon and web streaming.

There are some stutter, but it can happen from ripped file or file NAS buffer streaming, in total 5+6 with some movie.

I have test 23,976fps with motionbar test video ,no stutter.

Sorry, I thought it was about that new Zidoo box, and wanted to tell my experiences with a similar box. I don't have a 3D capable TV. This box does play almost every codec that I throw at it, and I have quiet a few sample videos to test.

Thanks for the feedback looun, sounds like HiMedia has delivered (for the most part). The "total 5+6 with some movie" stutters per movie doesn't sound so good though.

This is where you bought yours from?

I am also emotional when I fall in love with a toy - but I guess your emotions overwhelmed you ;-)

Just because of new firmware greater 3D effect and a Plasma turning into an OLED. Angel


If the player really got that much better then Himedia should be applauded.
