I have a 4 TB NTFS drive connected to the USB 3 connector on my Z9X, have Samba setup, have been able to successfully copy large files (e. g., 30 GB+) from my Windows 10 PC (Windows Explorer) to the drive connected to the Z9X until today when I started getting 0x8007003b error. I restarted my PC, Zidoo and router. Smaller files I tried 1 TB copied fine today. As I said the last time I did this a few days ago all was good. Any thoughts?
Hm. When I had the issue it was my router - needed to reboot it.A quick Google shows it's a well known Windows 10 error - If nothing has changed in the network or the Z9X then my first thought is a Windows update.
Found this on Technet that might help:
Is Zidoo going to fix their support/downloads page so I can get to the Z1000 Pro without jumping through hoops?New fw v6.0.90
v6.0.66(Without Google play)
v6.0.90_G(Build in Google play)
same hereUPDATE MORE TESTING. WITH MY NETWORK..
Just borrowed my buddies older x9s model.
X9s when using same wires (just swapped out Z9X) it played upto 350Mbs jelly fish files perfect.. not one stutter.
Also tried few movies that Z9X had stutter, all works smooth and perfect with x9s and z9s NOT Z9X...
This is using same SMB shares etc..
Now to test when other players come.. but not looking good
Wow! I've got 2 boxes on v6.0.90 and one on v6.0.60 (in the theatre room) and I've not seen anything like that.Since installing the latest update (to v6.0.90) my Zidoo has gone wacky! The box has shut down and restarted in the middle of movies (at least it restarts where the movie left off), HDR is incredibly oversaturated (Red, in particular). Audio was out of synch (at least I was able to fix that). Is the Factory Reset procedure the same as for previous boxes? The Z9x manual does not specify reset instructions (at least none that I can find).
Thanks, Mark. I will give 6.0.60 a try. If that doesn't fix the problems, I'll try .66 again.Wow! I've got 2 boxes on v6.0.90 and one on v6.0.60 (in the theatre room) and I've not seen anything like that.
Factory reset is the same as the other Zidoos - Quick Settings/Other/Recovery and reset/Restore Factory
If you want to revert to previous firmware you need to first go back to a full USB image:
and then you can update to whichever OTA firmware you choose - I'd suggest v6.0.60 for now:
This procedure is not without risk and you must follow the instructions absolutely to the letter...
Like any scaper, the big thing about getting accurate scraping is naming and the Zidoo one can be fussy. The movie name should be as close as possible to the exact spelling and punctuation as the name in TMDB. Additional wording or numbers will confuse it unless in line with the attached pdf.Hi,
I'm new to Zidoo. I have just set up my Z9x, when I scan for covers it does not find many of them even though I can search for the film title on TMDB and it finds them. Is there anything I am doing wrong? The films that are missing are big films and have been out for years, so its not that they have just been released and are not on the data base.
I use a Synology NAS cabled connection via Switch (1Gb) latency around 2ms, still drops when streaming movies over SMB (also stutters with NFS 2-4 times in a movie, tried several formats and sizes).
I too have random stuttering.. Over wired gig Lan connection..
All zidoo models prior to thr Z9X and every computer in house can play the same SMB share perfect with no stuttering..
The Z9X at random points, will stert to stutter.. even on low bitrate scenes..
on zidoo at least last few versions, I found nfs to perform worse than SMB. On my dune player, I found nfs better.
Even now after testing I still get stuttering with nfs and SMB.. but think maybe it's a faulty player the more I test.
The stutters were in original few firmware releases but were fixed for me. Issue was reported as IPv6 related.
After flashing 85 firmware the stutters have returned is this a new freezing issue or have they forgot to include the IPv6 patch?
I have exactly the same problem. All movies are jerky over the smb network. I have installed the latest beta 0.90.
The problem is reproducible without problem provided that the parameters are not constantly reset to factory values or any modification. If we watch continuously for example series, the third viewing (for example at the end of episode 3) the problem of stuttering will appear. On the other hand, it suffices to reset the parameters to zero or to touch the configuration and indeed the reading of the first one will pass without problem. In any case the problem comes from the caching, I have already indicated it in a post. There is a big problem in caching and in configuration resilience (parameter that jumps, etc.). YOU have to stabilize all that.Yes, I noticed that too. Also, troubles accessing NFS shares arise. I've experienced the latter myself. I had to change the fixed IP back & forth to be able to access my NFS shares again. During scanning an added NFS musicfolder in the musicplayer app, the screen suddenly pops back to the homescreen, leaving my added folder "Invalid". I still can't add a NFS share that has too many files :-(
So I also would definitely say that since last fw there's something changed in network behaviour, not for the better.
There has to be something going on here. I refuse to believe that it is my network now. I have a gigabit internet connection and with speedtests I get 970 Mbps while every other device in my network that plays UHD HDR high bitrate files does it without a hitch. Two players that encounter exactly the same problem but a Shield Pro and Dune 4K connected on the same gigabit switch where the Zidoo is play the same files effortlessly. Could someone please let Zidoo look into this because since I'm not alone with this issue anymore I'm starting to smell something fishy.Thanks for feedback...
I am still waiting for last 2 zidoo to arrive in mail.
Once they do come in I will test.. looks like my unit might be faulty..
Even with internal usb and jellyfish files, I get stutter at 300Mbs..
Agreed.. I think it's a firmware issue for sure..There has to be something going on here. I refuse to believe that it is my network now.

Thanks for that confirmation. I was thinking on pulling the trigger on the pro 4k II but was hesitant if the issues would be chipset related. If Zidoo doesn't fix it in a couple of weeks it goes out the door and I'll get myself one of those as well.Agreed.. I think it's a firmware issue for sure..
I just got the Dune 4k pro II, and same wires and network etc .. All play smooth and no stutter.
Even pulled out my x9s zidoo, and played perfect.
