Based on the product images, ZIDOO are showing off something called the “DVB-T2 UI” which looks significantly different to the one on the ZIDOO X9. Over on FreakTab, ZIDOO have posted some “leaked” photos of the UI in action and it looks pretty impressive.

The video above shows the user interface, and the DVB part starts at 1:27, where you can see support for scanning, EPG, and other functions associated with free-to-air TV, except recording and time-shifting, which hopefully will be implemented later. I’ve been told the 512MB RAM version won’t be able to record TV channels, and you’ll need the 1GB RAM version to do so.

As with the ZIDOO X1, so with ZIDOO D1 at the moment we do not have information about the prices. Hopefully, in a few days, the manufacturer provides an MSRP of both products, and may appear attractive prices in the presale. We will keep informed.
