Is anyone using their BD390 with Windows 10 with the Anniversary update installed?

I can no longer connect to network shares although the media servers still show and connect.

I have mine still hooked up, but I haven't used it in a long while...

i've been using a Fire TV (box) with Kodi (have tried SPMC/MrMC) for streaming my local videos/movies.

I think I may have to move in that direction

Its worth it.

I use BD-Rebuilder to rebuild my blurays to MKVs. They works great with internal subs too. I don't have to use external SRT files like I did with my BD390/BD570 players. And its a much better gui for navigating my movies.

One negative is that the newer Fire TV's do not have optical audio out... So with my older Pioneer Elite receiver (no HDMI inputs on it) in the family room, I need to keep the older 1st Gen Fire TV box. I'm using a 2nd Gen Fire TV in my bedroom. The 2nd Gen is a little faster navigating the GUI, but doesn't have the optical audio out (however this isn't a problem in the bedroom since I don't have an AV Receiver and surround sound setup).

The Fire TVs also don't support Vudu, Cinemanow, or other Ultraviolet playback.

EDIT: 2nd Gen Fire TV with an HDMI Audio Extractor like https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I4A12JG...I19RJAKZ01E4L1 works to give me optical out... (i.e. this solves the "no HDMI inputs" on my receiver issue)

Is there a reason to use BD-Rebuilder vs Handbrake or just storing DVD/BD ISO's?

Direct to ISO of the original disc (i.e. no compression) take up too much space.

I started using BD-Rebuilder years ago when trying to shrink Blurays to fit on a 25gig BDR, or shrink to fit on a DualLayer DVD (i.e. DVD9) disc, and I've stuck with it because of how well its worked. BD-Rebuilder can output BD-25, BD9(dvd9), BD5(dvd5) formats as well as custom size, ISO's. So if you're looking to keep everything but make it smaller.

I could never get Handbrake's output to look clear/sharp.

BD-Rebuilder works, output always looks great, and I found its GUI easier to use, and its options simple to understand. It lets me EASILY pick different output options, different titles/playlists (If I'm doing movie only), handles embedded Subtitles to SRT files (which my BD390 and BD570 needed). It handles embeding subtitles into the MKV files, including FORCED. It can output 3D blurays as HSBS MKV, and it does 3D -> 2D conversion, etc. It handles the different audio tracks and formats, can process to remove HD audio if you wish.

BD-Rebuilder is "donation ware" (donate what you can/want to in order to keep it going), so its worth trying for yourself to compare.
