Improve start up direct to Zappiti Video
You can set the player to start up with Zappiti video however, this is clunky & home made. The system first boots up with the Z logo and then loads the home centre (with 3 options) and then starts the video app. The screen switches on/off a twice and the resolution adjusts twice. This is really annoying, poorly thought out and sluggish. There should be an option just to both to video, which after the Z logo should just load your wall of pictures.
The Z logo staying on longer to allow background processes to start would be far more professional looking and less clunky. Also, it would save TV resolution adjustments.
As a general point, I also think that there should be an option to turn off the annoying white Advert banners (which display tips), again this all has the feel of a cheap Android streaming box. The appearance of the load process just doesn't match the high quality of the device or the video app.

I totally agree. It should not be so difficult to implement this good idea!?
The start up sequence for Zappiti 4K Pro HDR is best described by Iqbal Mohammed.
The problem of screen loading sequence and ON/OFF screen refreshing sometimes makes the product look as if there is a problem with connection between equipment, when in reality all is perfectly connected but the clunky software is playing catch-up with handshaking, etc.
Much room for improvement to make the right impression for what is a very solid product build.

Totally agree with this critic and suggestion made by Iqbal Mohammed. Zappiti should start and go directly to the Wall of Pictures.
