"Always something else to wait for..."

Yes, that is true. But the wait for DV is not that long. So you can wait for the xX400 series without too much delay. As for HDMI 2.1? Not sure I'd wait...

Because we don't have problems does not mean we're "ROKU apologist".

I have no problems with my Roku Ultra, my son-in-law has none with his either.

Why? Why buy a x4300 when waiting just a short while you can buy a x4400? DV isn't out even with a FW upgrade at this juncture. Could easily skip a whole model year.

Given DV is not really in place yet I'd wait for the Xx400's if it was important to me.

Plex as many of these companies do has entered the "We're too big for our britches" phase. They've been told so by lots of end users too. So far the response has been, "We don't care. You have no...

Plex Pass user. Tried Emby last night for while. It isn't as good as Plex. Sorry but unless it is more stable, which it isn't, its interface as compared to Plex puts Plex on top. Emby seems to be...

My opinion is IF you are just playing files locally and for what they don't cost now get a media player to do so. Some very good full featured ones for not very much money.

The problem is if...

Denon DVD-2910

Doesn't do DVD-A nor SACD via HDMI however. There's no Russian Roulette regarding this matter. Either the DVD player does HDMI 1.4 and can do DSD via HDMI or not.

For audio alone several of the late model DVD players do DSD via HDMI for SACD and do DVD-A playback. Several of the Pioneer Elites as well as the last line of Onkyo/Integras. AND if all you want...

You'd think that one would be easy to fix since its a standard deal.
