Hello. Yes I have 3 of these attached via powered hub to one of the 3.0 usb outlets on the z9s. No issues other than the drives never 'sleep' maybe because of the powered hub. I do have the 'sleep setting' for external HDD's on the z9s turned on. Drives show up on the network and windows explorer on my PC.
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 played the 59.94 UHD rip (Gemini) on the "Z10", I get audio drops and lip sync problems. :mad::confused:

If you can cut a 5 minute clip using mkvtoolnix and share, I can try it on my Z9s and other players. If you want...

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.

Like most Android 4k mediaplayers,you can install Apptoid(i believe...was months since i did it ) and then side load the version of Youtube which allows full 4k Youtube

Works well on my X9S,and ive seen others with the new Z9S say it works for them too
Can anyone advise how to do this, or where to download from? I've tried searching the thread but search here doesn't work too well.

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.

Nice to see regular updates but really need to nail seamless branching and improve blu ray menu support.
