I'll be very interested in what they can make next year if they do make something. This unit would probably replace my AVP if it had HDMI 2.0 and DTS:X support. I couldn't find anything on it...

You are correct, very similar other than the bay. It is slightly different hardware - for one thing it doesn't have a fan - I like that because I don't want any other noise - however you need good...

So when you watched Fury - were you watching on Dune, Roku... Were you watching from an ISO or an MKV. If it was an MKV, was it ripped with handbrake or makeMKV?

I am asking if the Roku can play back forced subs on streamed MKV files that were created with Makemkv. I do not wish to use handbrake. I do not wish to create separate subtitle files.
