C2 runs the green app just fine. I'm DRM from top to bottom on TWC/Spectrum so the grey app does me no good at the moment.
Right now I have C2s in my bedroom and kitchen and they work great for 1080P, stereo use. I haven't had the opportunity to connect one in my den where I can test 4K and HD audio, (Currently a Shield is handling that duty) but sometime soon I should be able to report on that.
App compatibility with them is hit or miss (TWC app won't work because it uses external HDMI) but most of the streaming services seem to do well with it.
Overall I'm very pleased.
RAID protection is only for failed drives. That's it. It's no replacement for a proper backup.
