i'm really dissapointed with my Zidoo x9s, i need to use it with kodi, but the ZDMC 17.1 doesn't work properly (no raw audio to avr, frame drops with 4k...) I also had a Nvidia Shield TV, but i'm looking for a device that could play 3d ISO MVC files through kodi.

Really interested in this himedia q5, but i also need to know how it performs with kodi and 3d Iso files...

kodi not support hisilicon soc,so you must use external player with himedia box.

if you want 3d ISO MVC files through kodi you must go to HTPC with unofficial fork https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=221407 or Raspberry Pi3.

As note previously in this thread, I tested framepacked 3D .iso Guardians of The Galaxy 37.1Gb for another forum and could see no noticeable microstutters, at all, same as watching any 2D 23.976fps Blu-ray .mkv movie.
The playback was the same PQ as watching from 3D Blu-ray player Big Grin (I watched the whole movie through to make sure).

usually they are very noticeable in fast action, panning scenes or rolling credits.
For me at 99% of the movie are not noticeable.

Yes, 2.0.4 is the best firmware so far IMHO. It works nicely with Kodi 17.3 (after disabling "joystick control" so the remoter works like it used to).
My use is restricted to local NAS and HDD content (no streaming and no need for "shitty" builds of Kodi).
Using the wrapper, Kodi passes seamlessly to the built-in media player (which has had improvements with the latest firmware) so 7.1 audio passthrough, 3D and auto-switching (depending on source) work fine.

If you have not already upgrade, it is worth doing so now. There are also instructions on Futeko's forum to downgrade if it does not suit your needs.

I also updated from 2.0.1 CFW. I was a little reluctant because I discovered that Netflix was not working anymore, nor did HBO Go, but pcristi saved us again and fixed everything that was wrong and made it perfect as much as he could. I would say CFW 2.0.4 is quite perfect now.
