Android -  Zidoo X9S, X8 & X10 (4K / HDR / 3D / HD Audio): Review & User Impressions
@lionne, maybe I, and others here, have been living w/Zidoo in blissful ignorance. I've gone back to f/w v1.5.0 given the SMB issue w/test firmwares v2.0.5, v2.0.10 & v2.0.12. With v1.5.0 at least, I'm not seeing the frame drop issues you call out. I've been sensitive to microstutters, so would've noticed such consistent frame drops, or so I think.

 Well it may be as suggested earlier that the frame drops were introduced in a more recent update, though an earlier poster also said that the frame drops shouldn't be happening in 1080p, even though I clearly had frame drops in both 1080p and 2160p, with both deep color on and off.

So it may be most just don't see these frame drops. Or it could be the frame drops are a newer issue and it is wider reaching than previously thought, affecting more configurations than expected.

I don't know. I posted my results and they are repeatable. That tells me something is very off here with the timing.

Or you're a more perceptive viewer and seeing what many of us had not. I've looked at that motion bars clip when doing media player tests in the past, but have hard time concentrating. Like you noted, eyes get wonky soon & I don't trust if I'm seeing skips or not. Instead, I've just watched 23.976 movies for 10-15 minutes to see if I could spot any skips or microstutters. With Kodi, it's easy to see by bringing by codecinfo for dropped frames count, but w/Zidoo's native player, must watch and try to spot w/o any help.

BTW, I was a big fan of Mede8er players. Too bad they didn't make anything new since their X3D series.

 Yeah, honestly I was hoping Mede8er had moved on to a new 4k/3D box, but sadly they did not. Just used it tonight to watch a 3D movie.

Been a very long time since I last used my Zidoo X9S, but was testing something, and now I only get stereo from any apps except the native player.  Tried playing live TV with the HDHomeRun app, but only got stereo, thought I used to get Dolby. 

I know I am senile, but I thought for sure I got Dolby and DTS natively from all apps.  I tried different settings, but no help.
