Wow, I got a notification from this forum that I have not been on in a year.
I would have responded to post, but I never got the notification a year ago.
To answer your question, No, I did not check to see if it played DTS. But I would not check the sticker to see if a car came with brake fluid either. I have 4 of this type of media streamers and all played my videos without a glitch. The Google Play being more expensive, I just thought it would as well. Well, I was wrong, and as you point out to me, it’s all on me, not Google TV.
Buy the way, I got the new Comcast X1 box a month or so ago, and you would not believe what it won’t do. You can’t view the guide at 59 minutes before the hour, or it will freeze. The recording light comes on when it wants to even if it is not recording. It automatically resets the video and sound settings when it feels like it. Just to mention a few. But I went back and looked at the specs and nowhere did it say that it would hold the resolution, or that the recording light won’t come on when it wanted to, or the guide would not freeze. So foolish me. Also, when I listed the issues I had with the X1 did anybody accuse me of not looking to make sure it worked properly? No, I got help…
Look, I am not knocking the box in general. It is just that for what I used the box for and what you use it for must be two different things. For me, playing the DTS was just so important. It’s 90% of what I use it for. And maybe I am a fool, but I think you would be hard pressed to find a device like that that won’t play DTS. All my previous ones did. So therefore I did not specifically look at the list of what it can do for this. (I did not look to make sure the menus were in English as well, thank god they were, but that would have been on me as well.) And I know the Google TV does a lot more that what is listed on the box. So that my friends, is why I was very disappointed in the limitations of this box. And my only reason was that I wanted to watch my movies and I could not.
PS I am 60 years old and have not done homework in years. My bad!
