Well, since this thread started, my opinion on the Shield Console has gone from "novelty" to "likely the centerpiece of my entertainment ecosystem"
I'm curious about DTS support. Honestly it isn't a deal breaker for me as my main viewing TV is only a 5.1 setup and surround sound is nice for me, but not anything that I really miss when I don't have it. I know it says it supports HD audio but looking at the nvidia site all I could find was references to Dolby TrueHD. DTS/DTS-HD seemed to be conspicuously absent.
Aside from that, this thing might be the perfect device for me if there ends up being a protected content solution that works on it.
I'm starting to get excited about the next generation of HT stuff.
Of course I've spent the last several days stripping and re-finishing an old (new to me) entertainment center, so perhaps it's just the fumes getting to me.
RAID protection is only for failed drives. That's it. It's no replacement for a proper backup.
