So I love the Chromebox, but I do have a minor issue. I bought the IR dongle mentioned in another thread so I could use my Harmony with it. The problem is there is horrible last when using it. Is...

First speaker problem - center channel blown?

First, some background. Back in 2012 I bought my first house and bought my surround sound system to go with it. I bought the full Andrew Jones Pioneer set (towers, center, bookshelf surrounds), an...

I went ahead and just bought a Chromebox from a forum member. It saved me some money and was basically ready to go, so I'm good with that. I think that's the solution I really wanted to go with, it...

Time to move on from the Boxee Box - Chromebox, Fire TV, or Plex PS4?

It looks like there are a lot more good options out there now for solid media streaming, and I think I can finally move on from my Boxee Box. The problem is now it seems there are too many options....

It doesn't matter that much, I use my PS4 for that primarily. Unless the fire can somehow be used to effectively stream local content at this point.

So sorry for such a general, dumb reply here. I sort of retired from looking at Media Players for awhile, as nothing was beating my Boxee Box for ease of use.

But are you saying this thing can...

Xbox One or PS4 - Either usable as a basic streamer?

I've been an avid streamer for some time now, and I actually started on the PS3 before "graduating" to dedicated streaming boxes. (Boxee Box on the main TV, WDTV SMP in the bedroom.) I recently...

I stuck with free programs for the longest time, just because I didn't want to spend the extra $50 or $60 or whatever when there were good free options. I finally wanted to enjoy the east of...

I'm thinking the only thing that may be in my future is one of those NUC boxes running XBMC. Will that handle all audio formats? What about 3D?

What has been holding back the Android boxes? HD Audio? I know some of them accept more file formats, but do they all just have limitations still?

After reading up a bit on the FireTV, I can see that, as expected, it doesn't really care about local streaming.

I do like the looks of those polks. I'm sure the wife would approve. They MAY be a little pricier than I wanted, though. I will certainly keep them in mind as an option. Do I need to buy mounts...
