@Mount81
If you don't know how use something screaming will not help.

Insert link is simple like make text bold.
1. Write what you want to be display WiFi Speed Test
2. Select what did you write and press Insert hyper link

3. Fulfill url.

4. Press Preview to check if everything is like you need.

5. Add more things if need, like picture, bold, color, etc.

Enjoy your free time...
Sorry guys for offtopic, but I can't refrain Mount81 is not first time when scream to Futeko.

1. I didn't "scream", this function of the Forum just isn't working like it used to, and I'm getting the feeling regards HiMedia subforum being very abandoned these days by Fut's Admin's, so it's get necessary to be a bit awareness-rising to get attention.   But I don't think I need to explain myself her any further... Here's what I've got: link to PlayStore. First to do a proper linking you must click to "toggle view icon", but this icon doesn't work anymore, I'm clicking it and nothing happens. At lest that's how it worked before.
And can't remember any previous occasions when I've  did "scream'" to Futeko, or any, trying to be as polite as possible, it's not particularly me who's forgets to be polite sometimes.

Back to the Topic: I can get 70/100Mbit when Up/Downloading to my Router that has a HDD shared on it's USB, so it looks like it's rather my laptops SMB speed that deciphers. And also I can get 80Mbit load speed to my laptop through TPC, so it's definitely the fault of the SMB protocol somehow...
Anyhow, it's stange that the app detects only 100Mbit for Ethernet Link Speed, and my download via SMB also maxes out at 100Mbit. Wonder what's the reason? Will try NFS on my laptop, many say it tends to be faster. Iperf is tha app, I guess I can measure the NFS loads.


https://play.google.com/store?hl=en]Test link to PlayStore.-> SEE?? Exactly how it shows on your picture, but it's still unproper.

For me this look to be 4  years old bug of that application see here.

Check eth0 speed via adb shell reading information from kernel:
Code: [Select]
adb connect <ip_player>
adb root
adb connect <ip_player>
adb shell cat /sys/class/net/eth0/speed

iper test on Q10Pro what is did on 2016 here.

You can see is not a real test application at least on Ethernet mode.
Some more test from that funny application:

On another Forum (just as here, see the "Aquaman BD Thread") a couple of users complained regarding stuttering with SMB shares (NAS or PC). I guess the HiMedia Boxes have some limitation or unpredictability regarding SMB streams. Like there's something "cutting off" the top part of the maximum possible speed between the server and the Box. Or it's some kind of compatibility issue, which results in speed limitation. I'm not sure yet. Will also test to my Gigabit Ethernet Desktop PC, see how it will end.

And I don't think it's that "funny" or unreliable application, as I've mentioned before the app's speed test results verified 100%-ly the stuttering problems with any, more than 40Mbit/s bitrate video on my system. So that's for that.

I'm not use SMB protocol, but standard of UHD disk has bitrate up to 120Mbit/s video and majority of users can see UHD disk playing over samba protocol, something must be wrong if can see only up to 40Mbit/s.
NFS are generally 2-3 time faster then SMB protocol and use less CPU, give a try of NFS from yours NAS or haneWIN NFS Server for Windows on yours laptop/desktop.
If you need help with NFS:
- NFS setting for NAS guide on Kodi wiki.
- haneWIN NFS Server for Windows nice tutorial in english on android-mediaplayer.de.

Next time just try to restart a router to see if this will solve.

After few days, when I start all a fresh, I can't connect my PC. It asks for user id & pass again and after putting in it says incorrect. I restarted router, desktop and zidoo thrice but it is unable to connect.

Wasn't that easy, but finally have NFS setup and working properly with Havewin. Tho' with iperf I can get 90Mbit/s up/down speed, the actual speed of my PC's NFS connection seems to maxed out at somewhere between 60 and 70Mbit/s, concluded by it couldn't playback stutter free a 80Mbit/s average bitrate video.  That still unsufficient for a lots of UHD videos, but that's the best I can get, and still much more better than the SMB's 40Mbit. 

I will have a try on one of these for my laptop (serving as a NAS): https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32401431234.html?storeId=301635&spm=2114.search0604.3.10.4d251b439SBIXI&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0%2Csearchweb201602_5_10065_10068_10059_10884_10887_10696_100031_10084_10083_10103_10618_10304_10307_10820_10821_10302%2Csearchweb201603_45%2CppcSwitch_7&algo_expid=1c343270-eaff-4179-b1b7-de587762fba3-1&algo_pvid=1c343270-eaff-4179-b1b7-de587762fba3&priceBeautifyAB=0 (The "Toggle View icon" and thus proper linking still doesn't work on this Forum).

Its all relative but OpenWRT on any platform runs very smooth in the background with transfer rates up to around 110 Mbyte/sec Write and Read (that is about the limit with Gigabit Ethernet). FTP does the same but I prefer SMB (functionality using Total Commander), Yes I can still nicely play SACD (USB Music Player Pro)  concurrently in DSD or a UHD bluray concurrently.

Transfer speeds with HiSillicon vary a lot because for me unknown reasons from 13 Mbyte/sec to 65 MByte/sec. I would love to see Himedia SMB Client (and others) working with OpenWRT as it makes a great SMB server.

You will probably never see that FYI.  HiMedia have left serious FW development and bug fixing since ages of updates, nothing we gained so far just the refinement of PQ (as I've noticed) with HiPlayer (at least that they did "somehow" in the right way).  And with every newer FW we just can hope that they didn't screw up anything mayor, that was working before (because that's our experience here).  Juts see some the fresh Topics around regarding: SD 19:6 and 4:3 aspect ratio bug since FW 2.0.4, was working proper before, and so why and how they wreck it?! <i>itallic<i> sub bug is still present with .srt since the beginning, that's so essential, that you have to ask: are they serious? I guess not... Not the level you would expect after buying a such promoted and expensive Player. Not even close.

Hardware material=good (still the best PQ that can come out from an Android player, thanks to the superb chip, even Zidoo falls behind), support=not so (and than I was polite). 

I got used to it's faults, and prefer it's benefits over the other options, but I guess it's just me, so if you would ask, I would recommend Zidoo over HM, as I would presume you're not the one who's willing to do and switch and check things manually all the time to get the right results...
