Z9S HDMI in Issue (solved)
I have had an X9s for many years and it works well. I use it often for HDMI
recording. It is connected via an HDMI splitter to a Sky box, with the X9S
HDMI output connected to my venerable TV, a Sharp LC-37X20E model. It has
I recently upgraded to a Z9S, just replacing the Zidoo and its power unit,
everything else unchanged. I soon found a problem - it would adopt one of
four symptoms, seemingly at random. Either a good recording, or a loss of
sound part way through, or a completely garbled sound plus a very jerky
picture in the mini window or a complete crash to a dark green screen
followed by a reboot.
I tried all the settings I could find for both picture and sound, I copied
down all the X9S settings and applied those, tried a full factory reset,
checked on latest firmware but nothing fixed the problems.
Further investigation revealed that the trigger for the problems was
changing the input selector on the TV and it was OK after selecting away
from the Zidoo, the problems occurred at the moment of going back to the
Zidoo. I retried the advanced settings for HDMI but still no change. I tried
a different TV and no problems occurred.
Redoubling my efforts I eventually found that disabling the picture EDID,
it's under quick settings, display then turn on "Ignore EDID". I dont
think the X9S has this setting.
Hope this helps somebody, just as this site helped me with Miracast problem.
