good news guys.. Zidoo has another upcoming firmware with awesome filled in.
Definitely more promising than other brands of media players right now.

basically, the upcoming HomeTheatre 2.0 is a much better version and you can get rid of using zbmc or whatever you're using as this is going to be much better. it matches better and you can now manage your library even on PC and phone.
the new control center basically all control in your phone or pc and even Control4!

this is based on beta 2.0.5, i don't suggest you to upgrade yet, wait for the stable version.
,Fix Douyu crash problem.
2,Update HomeTheater2.0 and control center

Player:
1,Add a function to export internal text subtitles from videos
2,Add a Chinese language into media info.

Quicksettings:
1,Fix some WIFI hotspots cannot be scanned out

Clear:
1,Add a function to manage self-starting APPs

Filemanger:
1,Add a poster view for videos

Blu-ray:
1,Fix selection of audio track doesn't work in some Blu-ray movies.

Taking the plunge to get one but dunno which to get

personally i feel that most will concern are
- chipset
- features
- product support
- ultra/blu-ray full menu support
- lastly PRODUCT COST

i feel all are good, if you've the budget to go with the majority, why not?

Just received my X9S:)

First impressions,
- build quality is excellent for a $170 player. Very sleek looking
- menu was easy to navigate and use, all in English
- could playback all HDR/4k files easily
- OS is quite fast
- remote is very easy to use too
- HDMI sync and connectivity, pretty good, not much issues.

one issue i faced on video resolution.
>> When i set the video resolution to AUTO and played a 4k/HDR file, the video turned pinkish. I had to manually set it to 2160p 60hz then it will play correctly.

What video resolution setting did you use Wilber?
