Not used a Zappiti but for me HT2 has always been a very accurate scraper. I think it's as good, if not better than Kodi, and leagues ahead of Dune. Now with v3 it's stepped up a couple of gears. It's not perfect but it's damn good!

Auto Update to HT 3.0? I had a power outage and after reboot, now have HT3. software is v2.2.96 . I haven't manually updated firmware for a few months and was very surprised. Anyone else notice this?

Yeap! Same for me and for a bunch of Zidoo owners! It rarely updates online directly!

How to rescrape or locate missing titles?

I've installed HT 3.0 but am missing a lot of titles. TV shows are ridiculously jumbled. How can I locate the missing titles and add them to the video wall? Pardon the simple question, but the "owner's manual" does not address this. Thanks,

Too many network queries

I don't mind a couple of pings now and then, but the frequency of queries by my Z9S is way too excessive. It's constantly querying the sites:

alog.umengcloud.com
captive.v2ex.co
noisyfox.cn

every 2-5 seconds. With access to these sites blocked, my Z9S still functions fine for what I use it for, but does anyone know what they're doing, and how to disable those queries on the Z9S? I gather one has to do with the weather updates, which I don't care about.

At the very least has to do with updates, mine has spontaneously updated itself twice now.

Do you have other stuff running besides HT?

Mine spends most of its time querying the source NAS drives and every few minutes or so it'll make a call to a name server or a time server or some other external IP that won't resolve, but it's all innocuous and certainly not every few seconds.

Thanks vidwiz and markswift2003. Helpful comments. One is definitely a host-site for updates, since unlike others, I'm not getting the automatic update to HT 3.0. Not sure if I want to update, because fortunately for me, in my use scenario, everything is working fine. Mark's comment got me thinking that maybe it's just sending to those sites because it can't connect to them. I'll let them through and see what happens and if that reduces constant pinging.

My comments above are related to firmware v2.3.30 with HT v3.0.40.

Out of curiosity, I wiresharked my main theatre box which is on firmware v2.2.96 and HT v3.0.40

This one gave similar results to you - didn't see the first two domains, but I noticed queries to noisyfox.cn and noisyfox.io, but certainly not every few seconds, so I think you're right - if it can't get through, it's going to keep banging out.

I also didn't get the constant NAS queries with this box either.

Again, nothing innocuous that I could see, and to be fair, wouldn't expect.

I'm now wondering why v2.3.30 seems to be hammering my NAS drives with queries and v2.2.96 isn't... Might go back to the release version v2.3.10 and see if that's the same...

**Edit** v2.3.10 is the same.

Well Well Well Thor Ragnarok UHD/BD plays (no glitch/freeze at 4 min+ and after from Bluray menu so does Venom UHD and the John Wick II & III UHD and these last two are Lionsgate releases


Avatar BD will not "play" from BD menu simply loops the animated screen after selection of edition and pressing play
Plays all 3 versions from "file" and pop-up menu selection



Well done Zidoo at last 99% there on this?


All I need is an "unlimited" size HT3 movie wall freezes during scanning when a large number of files for example TV shows are entered and I am set
I'm in for the Z9X now when this is sorted

Is there a way to use a Windows PC to make changes to rematch titles in the poster wall or "Other" files? I've gone through many posts on this thread and the x9s thread and have seen no mention of this possibility. It would certainly make things a lot easier than rematching files while burning the lamp on my projector, or wearing out my thumbs using the Zidoo remote control. Hint: the Zappiti has this capability and it saves a lot of time and trouble.

You have the option of logging into your Zidoo from your pc and if I remember correctly also matching movies . The login address is on the last item of HT settings screen . The screen on pc will be very similar to the Zidoo Remote

Hi, Thomas. I'm afraid I'm not following you. Are you referring to the "About" section of HT3.0?

Just go to http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:9528

where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of your Zidoo.

When you first log in you'll be prompted to create a password.

Be warned, it is a bit funky! But it works

I know this is the Z9S thread, but has HT3.0 been verified to also work on the X9S? I would assume it should function with no problem....

Thanks, Mark & Thomas. I made the connection, but what I'm seeing (Open WRT) makes no sense to me. I'm simply looking for a way to use my PC to identify incorrectly identified titles. My NAS contains over 200 films and about 400 TV Episodes, so correcting without a PC or MAC is incredibly time-consuming. The Z9s, when simply playing a title, seems to yield a nice image, but operationally it is very quirky and not what I'm used to. Zidoo appears to have no in-house technical support. If it were not for users like yourself I don't know how anyone could do anything with this box. Again, thanks for your time and responses.

You're going in on port 80 in that case - you missed the port off the end of the address:

http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:9528

So if the IP address is 192.168.0.55 for example, you would go to:

All Right. Now that I have access to my Zidoo via my PC, I can make some headway with mismatched titles. Two questions: How does one create a Collection, and how does one add a title to that Collection?

Oh, FYI, I have an X9s but when I tried to load the latest Z9s software the machine said it was the wrong firmware. Do I uninstall HT 2.0 first?

Why are you trying to load the wrong firmware on your device?... the Z series uses totally different firmware than the X series.... But can share the same app versions.. such as HT or ZDMC.....

Go into "Collection Management" from the menu icon (bottom right of poster) for the movie you want to change.

There you can either create a new collection or add to an existing one.

Zidoo Z9S | Nvidia Shield Pro | HDFury Vertex² | 32TB mirrored storage
Denon AVC-X8500H | JVC DLA X7000 | Screen Research 9ft multi aspect ClearPix 2 ISF screen
3 x PMC IB2S fronts | 4 x PMC Wafer 2 rears | 4 x PMC Wafer 1 ceiling | 2 x M&K SS550 THX height | Rel Stentor III
A pair of slippers, a comfy sofa and a glass of 16 year old single malt

It seemed odd to me, too, but someone wrote that they'd upgraded HT2.0 to HT3.0 on the x9S. I thought I'd give the z9s firmware a shot. If there is another means of getting HT3.0 on the x9s, I be most appreciative of instructions.
Thanks again,
John

I guess up to this point, HT3.0 is still officially considered to be in "Beta"?.. so as such for the X series, there has not been an official release of the APK. But, there was an initial limited Beta testing offering of the new HT3.0 that you could sign up for and receive it and put it on an X9s. But what is kind of bizarre, is that the APK has been straight up bundled with the latest Z series players firmware and/or actually has been pushed down separately to owners of these players automatically... which is a bit out of the ordinary for what is supposedly considered Beta yet. So, obviously Zidoo is pretty confident with it! And @markswift2003 has tested it with his X9s and it works just fine.

At any rate, it is available from this link: https://onedrive.live.com/download?c...N746v-bCz1rc68

Thanks greatly, Deano86. I'll give it a try.

How are you determining these pings? Anything to be worried about? My system automatically updated to HT3.0
