Using Xbox One as BluRay Player
With the price drops going on now, I'm thinking of upgrading from the 360 to an X1. I'm not planning on getting rid of the 360 just yet since a.) kids like to use the Kinect, and I don't want to drop the money for a new Kinect, especially with the shorter cord making it impossible to keep the X1 in the media closet and b.) don't want to chuck all the games we have. So that being said I'm wondering if its worth keeping my current BD player (Samsung HM59C) or returning it and using the X1 as our BD. We also use the BD for the streaming apps - we don't use cable or OTA services. The rest of my setup is as follows:
Panasonic Viera 55" TCP50GT30
Klipsch HD500 5.1 home theater speakers
I don't plan on upgrading any other equipment within the next year or two as long as it keeps working.
