About_Zidoo_X6_ProOn the hardware front, Zidoo X6 Pro has features very similar to other RK3368 mini PCs, but one selling point of Zidoo boxes is their regular firmware updates. For example, they may have released Zidoo X1 a bit too early, but they were quick to provide a fix for many of the playback issues found in Kodi.

Zidoo X6 Pro firmware should have a single partition to avoid “storage full” issues while installing apps, power should be handled by an MCU for a clean power off, and power on “from the sofa”, while a “custom version of Kodi 15” will handle H.265 hardware decoding, 7.1 audio pass-through, 24Hz automatic frame rate switching, and 3D video (BD 3D MVC) support. Regular firmware updates will also be provided over the air.

Zidoo X6 Pro is now listed for pre-order on Geekbuying for $99 with shipping scheduled to start on September 30, and should soon show up on Amazon US. A few more details can be found on Zidoo X6 Pro product page.

Can it output true 23,976 Hz or only 24 Hz ?

Look forward to seeing their code if they are selling a box with a custom Kodi build on it…

X1 was horrible. Didn’t own a X9 (Mstar really ?). But now they might finally do it right and release a good box.

So sorry to keep you waiting so long. From yesterday on, our zidoo has sent samples to some Review users. Users who pre-ordered from Geekbuying with payment before Sep.20th, will get the X6 Pro box sooner. Although we really want to make a perfect device and work hard, we spent a lot of time to study the usage habits and concerning functionalities of Europe and the United States users. Before producing, the X6 Pro box has been updated 15 FW versions in-house. We dare not say it’s perfect before it has been really through user test. There will always be… Read more »
