Gameplan for 4K with HEVC H.264 ?
Hi there !... I purchased the SONY XBR-65X 850A in November 2013 thinking that the new HEVC encoding H.265 would be a software download in 2014, not a hardware issue.... Ha ha, big mistake !... So, now, it seems that the only 4K available is through the SONY FMP-X10 player which has the new encoding built in ( for Netflix 4K, etc.)....
Do you guys think it's worth holding off on purchasing the FMP-X10 to wait for the new encoding-enabled ROKU, Apple TV, Blu-Ray Players with 4K Apps, etc. ?.... Does anyone know the timeframe for these ?.... Or any other potential 4K streamer box I haven't thought about ?
If their release is too far into the future I guess I'd have to settle for the SONY player if I want to get 4K on this set.... But, obviously, I'd like to have the much wider selection option of ANY 3rd party 4K streaming box.... Christmas 2014, perhaps ???
