Of course no issue for now but on a long term basis, your 1.8A adapter will heat up faster and it will be very warm on the touch which is not a proper way to power the Zidoo's as it will shorten the life span!

Hello. Just received my Zidoo from 1111 Lazada sale. May I know if there will be any issues if I were to use my ifi ipower 12v/1.8A power supply? I am currently using it for my popcorn hour a400 without issues. Not sure if it has enough 'juice' for the Zidoo or not.

Hi Chaizhoi, do you feel this ifi power adaptor 'improve' the AV quality?

Previously using ifi with my pch a400. Color looks deeper. I didn't use the stock power supply with my Zidoo before to do a proper comparison.

Dunno if other Realtek chipsets use the same upscaling algorithm - but the one on the Zappiti is tremendously good. Most users recommend setting output to Source Direct (like 720p/1080p) and letting the Sony Reality Creation work - but the Zappiti one does a noticeably better job - especially with macroblocking removal

Found and bought a used Zidoo H6 Pro for half price. Can pass through Dts Hdma & Dolby TrueHd. Only thing is need play around with positioning to get better 5ghz wifi for streaming. Otherwise is a good fast tv box :)
