HBO Now went live for Fire TV / Fire Stick over the weekend, been mostly dissapointed with it so far. No Dolby support is my biggest complaint, second is the video quality- which seems to take longer...

You could've used powerline ethernet. My modem's upstairs, the main TV's downstairs. I never had an issue with Amazon 1080p content. (or 1080 from other providers like VUDU or Netflix) Even the...

I don't think any of the big three set top box makers even prioritize or sell network media streaming as a feature / bullet point. The primary function for STBs is OTT content. Adding features for...

Yes. It will also do a HDMI stand by-through mode if the AVR is off. You can also change inputs while the AVR is off too.

But I never use it, my panel's speakers are crap.

I bought it new in 2012 for $250.00. (Woot!) Still happy with it, albeit underpowered (IMO) for OTT / Dolby Digital Plus content.

I think $150 is a fair price. It is a decent network AV reciever.

Think the explanation for the VUDU exodus is a lot simpler.... Two new OTT providers- SlingTV and HBO Now.

I have to rethink keeping Hulu as well.

I still get the HD/ HD1080p indicator on my Fire TV and Fire sticks. Watched HUMANS (not prime) last night, still showed up.

Kinda agree, prefer a little more difficulty in the flight model. I've been messing with Flight-Assist Off to spice it up a bit. There are some CMDRs that really excel in FAO.

Seeing the same crappy YT performance on my 3.

I usually use the Fire TV for YT, so it was quite a shock.
