Thanks, guys, for the info. I'm generally very pleased with the Zidoo Z9s. For its main purpose, it's excellent - that is, for smooth and reliable 3D MKV playback via SMB from my Synology NAS. It does have its quirks, though. The main one is that it balks at most (if not all) PCM audio playback. I get nothing. Secondly, it's inconsistent in how it handles multi-part discs and sequels. That's kind of a mess. It also seems a bit darker in video playback than the Shield.
Along with Plex and the Shield, and the Z9s, my bases are now covered. If anyone has tips on dealing with the issues I describe above, I'd appreciate the assistance.
As usual, I was able to find a quick answer from this community. Thanks again.
