No. The new Zidoo players support all Dolby Vision profiles except 7 and 8.

Proper direct support, or support via the VS10 engine for conversion to generic HDR?

That would lead to a direct ban by multiple parties.

Maybe somebody can write illegal FW patches for it? I don't miss it personally, for me it is mostly hype.
The difference with properly implemented HDR10 and HDR10+ or DV are minimal from what I have seen.

Dolby Vision makes sense only for OLED owners. There are significant differences there compared to HDR.
Dolby Vision on a (Q)LED is a completely different (subpar) experience.

I noticed this box supports Dolby Vision low latency(LLDV)output I am wondering if this will work on my OLED C6 which doesnt support LLDV but does support Dolby Vision at 30FPS using built in apps.

I already bought the Z9x anyway because I need a 3D player can't wait ;D.

2 years ago i replaced my popcorn 500 for the Z10. Best media player by far. So now the Z9x for the second TV, since the GT King does not really compute all the UHD HDR stuff flying around :)

Hi, I read this box won’t support profile 7 DV.
Has anyone any idea how we will process our UHD BD for playback on this?
Thank you.

What do you mean? How to covert for DV playback?
Or how a DV UHD BD will be played back?

Not really. The zidoo will playback a DV BD with just HDR10. As these are DV profile seven which is not supported.
You may convert profile 7 to a profile that is supported, like profile 5.

Hi, it is the same question, all you needed to say is that they will need to be converted to DV profile 5.
Not all DV UHD BD disks have HDR10+ and my TV doesn’t support HDR10+ so that answer isn’t relevant.
Some FEL titles when converted from profile 7 to profile 5 are not showing accurate colours on other machines currently on the market, also no one is quite sure what is ‘thrown away’ when doing this conversion - if the Zidoo can do this correctly  I may buy one, at the moment the Oppo clone is King for DV.

HDR10+ was a typo.
