I think max drive size is 14tb but I could be wrong.
Hope this helps!
Thanks for the info...being able to use a powered hub is great news.
I wound up using a WD 10Tb drive and it works great. It's connected to a usb2.0 slot because of the continuing problems with the usb3.0 still having sporadic freeze issues. I have no issues with the 2 slots.

I also just updated to 2.3.7 yesterday and it went well. I was having a glitch with the user interface...after watching an episode of a show it would go to the folder then the screen would go black for 5 seconds then go to the folder again. The update fixed that glitch but perhaps started another...when using the volume control for the avr the volume display would appear but since the update it doesn't...not a big deal at all but it is a glitch.
I'll power off/on the Z9 and do a cache clean up, etc. to see what happens.
I haven't checked out all the areas the update "fixed" but will try to today.

Thanks for the input.

I get audio drop out now and then, I stop the show and go back then start again and click on "continue" and it resumes with no problems.
This seems to occur when I'm fast forwarding through the intro and go a bit to far before stopping and play.
It doesn't happen often but when it does that is usually the reason and the remedy...at least when it happened to me.

Keep in mind that with this title's higher frame rate, could it also be exposing a network throughput/bottleneck issue with your network or setup? If using a NAS, you may wont to reboot it and try again.

My Zidoo Z9S used to be rock solid and could run for months. But lately it's been locking up frequently, mostly when copying files to the SMB share. I have to cycle power to get it working again.

I'm thinking about trying to revert the firmware, since that is about the timing when the problem first started. But I thought I would first ask if anyone else is having the problem, or if there is a known solution or workaround.

Hi Guys, I am currently using a WDTV Live and statring to encounter issues so I am looking forward to upgrade. Would the Z9S would be a good solution for the near future?

I mostly stream movies from my NAS in 1080p and HD Audio (Atmos, etc.). I plan on getting a 4k projector in the next year so I will stream in 4k x265 in the future.

I liked the frame rate matching with the WDTV.

Will the Z9S be a good player for me?

The short answer is yes. All these players have some issues, but Zidoo is probably the best a frequent release updates to address them.

The 1-on-1 REMUX for me is not even playing on the Z9S. On the NVidia Shield 2019 with Kodi it plays with an occasional audio hiccup. On the AppleTV with infuse it plays like a charm but of course no Atmos.

That’s my experience.

Thanks leonkoum
I'm glad to see certain bugs fixed.


Is there a way to improve the downscaled 4K-->1080p picture? On 4K tv the picture quality from UHDBD is good.
But connected to a 1080p tv, UHDBD doesn't look good. Quality of 1080p BD source of the same movie is great though.

Now they have issued 2 releases since I made this comment 12 days ago. I feel prophetic.

The Z9s is OK as an MKV player but the main issues with BDMV folder playback (seamless branching and glitchy blu-ray menu playback) never get completely fixed.

The firmware releases may be frequent but concentrate on minor issues.

Will check it, but ‘optimizing’ probably means they are really trying hard and it’s another attempt at a fix.
The issue has been ongoing since the player was released.

First test on 'optimised' seamless branching is an epic fail. Thor Ragnarok UHD has first M2TS join at 4m 25s. Previous firmware stuck here. So does this. Other checks on problematic disks show no improvement at all. Disappointing. With recent firmware's with a long list of fixes none have addressed or fixed seamless branching and hit and miss blu ray menu support

Same here when playing from "blu ray" menu it still freezes However when playing from file it jumps with a glitch and carries on for me. It is a very noticeable glitch.


As it is now Chinese New Year I suppose we will not see any update for at least 4-8 weeks!! or this new Major update.


These betas were probably released to clear the decks before their break


We are hopefully getting there albeit very slowly

It’s difficult to remain optimistic, given Zidoo’s track record on the seamless branching issue, especially when they claim it has been ‘optimised’ in the latest beta.
