I wonder what it is

I have no idea, but it has ALL the acronyms!
This is certainly much cheaper than the Zidoo X9S/X8 offerings.

The only potential fly in the ointment is the support.

Manufacturers, especially no name ones are notorious for poor support and so people turn to independent devs for more stable firmware.

Realtek is very much a closed system when it comes to their sources though, which makes it difficult for devs to improve the firmware.
To get a general idea of user experience with the RTD1295, the Zidoo X9S forum should give you some idea.

Basically Android TV box with one of the latest SOC (system on a chip), namely the Realtek RTD1295, if you look at the first comment I posted it shows the 3 current new SOC boards out now, comparing there CPU, GPU, memory info etc
I tried to play a movie the other night (on my Nexbox 905x) and it was stuttering and there was no sound. Is this more powerful and more likely to play larger movie files?

It's a .mkv file 4.74Gb big @ 384kbps bitrate. H.264 & audio = 6 channels @ 48kHz. I tried all the players on my box which are 1. Bog-standard player 2. VLC and 3. MX Player

Is that a separate download to the player? (if so, no I haven't)

I take it that you are referring to the Nexbox X95X/A5 with the S905X SOC on board.

If you are using something like Kodi and have configured it for HD audio passthrough but it is not set in the firmware (in settings) then you may not get sound.

If there is no HDMI passthrough in the firmware, then turn it off in Kodi and then you should get 2 channel PCM downmix from the AC3 audio.

If you want a firmware that will be much better than stock then there are a few out there, including this

Custom Firmware

And if you are using Kodi, then this is better for you box.

Is that new ROM easy to install? (I must admit, I'm not keen on the standard ROM that came on the Nexbox)

You talk about altering settings in Kodi, but I don't use Kodi to watch movies - I use MX Player or VLC. Should I be using Kodi instead then?

Thanks for your help ;-)

Run LibreElec from a decent MicroSD card, it's like using a different box it's so much better, it'll outperform anything this side of £100 (if not more). I've played test files on mine that are 500mb for 30 seconds at 140mbps (jellyfish-140-mbps-4k-uhd-hevc-10bit.mkv). I'd never buy something without LibreElec support again.

Ok , follow the instructions HERE, but dont download from that website, download the required file from HERE

Which means if any video file had a dts/dtshd/ac3/eac3/mlp audio track then the video will play without the audio.Fortunately the codec can be installed separately on MXplayer and for those who want to enable support for codecs such as AC3, here’s how you can do so
