As I said, I'm just a few weeks into that now via the FireTV. Now I'm thinking of building a HTPC or perhaps a NUC like many here seem to like. I'm just getting tired of having multiple devices that do a few things well but not the whole package. I think my requirements are fairly conservative compared to others that are doing TV recording and such. What I'm looking for is:
A one box player that can handle my full BD MKV and BD-ISO files without stutter, deliver TrueHD and DTS-HD without issue, proper 24p playback, 4:2:2 and or 4:4:4 colorspace and an XBMC type interface for viewing titles and movie information. I would also like it to be able to stream the online content of XBMC without buffering.
I love XBMC... My only problem has been that I have never been able to get my HDHomerunDual tuners to work in it. I wish it would be as easy to setup as the movies, music etc. are.
