Does any know if I want to stream movies to my Aios from a (Windows) server, does that server need to provide the data via an NFS? If not, what other options do I have?

Thanks,

Question Difference between Runco CineWide and WideVision anamorphic lens?

I guess there's a very slight difference in the expansion from 4:3 to 16:9 versus 16:9 to 2.35, but it is very slight (1.333 vs 1.322).

Is that the only difference? That the WideVision is...

I didn't mean to be confusing, But yes, you can also call it bit rot. That's certainly a fair description of what is likely the most common silent failure. But there are others, such as a head crash...
