So I have a WD live tv hub and overall I like the unit, I like the internal Hard drive, GUI and file support.
I am unhappy that WD will never enable DTS-MA pass through(due to licensing) and Western digital seems to be more focused on adding apps and breaking basic operating task like playing M2TS files (last firmware). The current Firmware is outputing PCM 7.0 via the HDMI with MP3's, Pandora etc.. which is causing havoc with receivers.
I am looking for something to replace my WDLH. Its gotta have a good GUI and output the DTS-MA/Dolby tru-HD.
My plan, when the price of Hard drives go back down, to get a NAS. So a hard drive in the streamer is not a must but I have grown to like a place to store the movies without firing up my PC.
Its so hard to find a central place for a "shoot out" of media streamers and there are so many companies doing them. Going on their forums is no help either. i feel like I can't get a feel for firmware support.
I was looking at the New popcorn hours A-300/c-300's but there are so many mixed reviews on the 200 series.
I've heard good things about Dunes and Nixeus fusion HD.
So using the WD Live TV Hub as a Benchmark, whats the next step?
