Everything else seems to work well, no improvements on the playback issues with the auto frame rate options enabled.
Anyway I decided to send back my unit as after my evaluation I cannot see any difference in PQ compared with the Zidoo x9s which for my usage with Kodi is better than the Zappiti jukebox.
The units are almost identical (like most android boxes I presume) and though I prefer the Zappiti explorer/jukebox in terms of aesthetics the Zidoo has a few more tricks and is more practical.
I heard others say that and that is weird. I had the zidoo for a month and also the Zappiti, that I kept.
I did really many tests on a Panasonic Plasma, and mostly on my Sony VW 95 projector. The Zappiti was much sharper. I explain. With the projector I had to leave my sharpness on 0 or it would be too much. The Zidoo on the other hand needed to be put on 10 or 20, to have similar effect. My Oppo is usual between 0 and 3 sharpness. It will depend on the file too, if it are close ups, or taken further away.
I have a concert of George Michael. It has rather complicated background, that did not render so much on the plasma with the Zidoo, but was perfect with the Zappiti. I also installed Kodi on the Zappiti, did a few test with that, and then they looked much more alike. I could have had a problem Zidoo unit, maybe after all my checking, something was different in the settings, but for me the Zappiti was sharper ( a bit too much sharpened at some times even.
I have it now on holiday in Thailand on a big LG plasma. Impressions are same, sharp and also not much video-noise, so the Magic pixel could exist after all (although after many pages on HC-fr forum no info what it should do.
But maybe you guys can help me. I lost the remote in Cebu. So I have to use a mini-keyboard. I cannot make the most important thing work. The enter or left click mouse not work if I want to browse my hard disc in Zappiti, neither launch movies in the player, and neither select by left mous click the proposed update.......... If someone found out how to launch it with the miney keyboard, welcome...
