I think he means scraping for Zidoo Home Theatre. - It works very well, as good or better than any other product/software.


That's what I meant. lol  ;D 

Can't wait to have a play with it.  Just have to get the right settings for my LG CX OLED?   It should be ok with out of the box settings?   I know you have to put audio to RAW for passthrough Atmos and DTS-X with my LG SL8YG sound bar. Not too sure about the other settings?  I'm coming from a Zappiti HDR 4K Mini player that works perfect, but is missing DV and wanted a internal HDD. 

I can have all my 4K movies in one folder called 4K Movies?  They don't need to be in separate folder do they?  The folder structure should be similar to zappiti I would think?

the only issue i got is some UHD rips that have a random stutter/freeze, looks like a buffer issue.
In Android Setup there is an option to use minimal buffer which is ON by default. Maybe it helps setting it to OFF?
I’m having no problems with stutter or freeze from UHD with HD audio in either HDR10 or Dolby Vision 60fps.
Network NAS or local SATA/USB?

Right, think i found the bugger in the case of stutter/freezes  with UHD rips over network/NAS. From the zidoo forum came the tip to switch from SMB to NFS. And that seems to solve the issue.

Hi!  Does anyone else have this problem?

as in missing episodes? If so, yes, that happens sometimes. You sometimes need to go to the folder itself, and do a re-match ?

Via network? Do you have an IPv6 ISP?

Using a 'flat folder' structure could lead to problems  :o!

I've always followed the 'best practice' rules set by Kodi ... each video in its own folder. Also in that folder you should put all of the images (fanart, posters, ...) and an nfo file for that video. It makes management far easier.

There is plenty of information in the Kodi Wiki:

We will despatch all Z10 Pro and Z1000 Pro pre-orders before end 2-SEP.

One day delay due to us forgetting that 31-AUG is a public holiday in the UK so stock will not be delivered until 1-SEP.

I find that any problems with scraping or .nfo files can be sorted easily with with tinyMediaManager (https://www.tinymediamanager.org/). It is a very impressive program and its FREE!!!
It will build an .inf file for a video and download all the needed artwork. It saves me lot of time  :D!

No, I have it set to imdb for movies and tvdb for tv programmes. I'm getting a 99% success rate, very few have failed.

Yes, I installed the Z1000 Pro version earlier ;D!

Samba is up and running. It's a pity that they have done nothing to the Music Player though  >:(!

I did install ZDMC but I've now uninstalled it. It looks like a dinosaur compared to Home Theatre 4.0  8).
