Current gold standard in quality & stability streaming high bitrate local content?
What is the current gold standard when it comes to streaming Bluray remuxes with DTS HD-MA on a dedicated box which doesn't break the bank? Both quality and lack of issues with streaming, as well as stability of the platform itself.
I've been running Ouya for a while with XBMC streaming from an unRAID server on LAN, and while it plays well almost everything I throw at it, it's not the most stable platform, and am looking for other options if upgrading to Kodi doesn't fix the issues I have (occasional stutter, loud subwoofer clicks, crashes, garbled video after some point in a movie).
Pi 2 looks promising, though I'm not sure how easy it is to setup IR with FLIRC. Although I'm fond of XBMC/Kodi, I'm open for other suggestions; I've heard Amazon Fire TV and Chromecast might also be viable options, as long as I don't have to buy into their services (not available over here, and I don't trust them with my data anyway).
