Yup, Shield + SPMC + PlexKodiConnect is a great solution. You will get lossless audio and refresh rate changing, plus official support for about every streaming service imaginable with the exception...

Your choices are very limited if you absolutely need Amazon support. Otherwise the Shield does just about everything. There are apparently ways to sideload the Amazon app onto the Shield, but this is...

The Oppo 103 was released in 2012 after Cinavia enforcement began. Some devices including the 103 didn't enforce Cinavia properly when streaming files over a network, so Cinavia titles would still...

I've heard of some blu-ray devices not enforcing Cinavia properly in the early days (example (http://www.makemkv.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1846&start=60#p33574)), but no idea what the status is...

If you use Plex you will have a nice movie wall. Personally, I recommend separating blu-ray players and media streamers due to Cinavia. Not sure if the PS4 or Xbox One enforce Cinavia in Plex.

I forget how things are arranged by default, but you might want to try a different Kodi skin. I highly recommend Titan. If things aren't to your liking by default you should be able to adjust all the...

Nvidia Shield + SPMC + PlexKodiConnect. This is the best solution. Been a die hard Plex and HTPC user for years. 24p and HD audio should work fine.

Bummer! Hopefully they address that. I figured the Shield Plex server would end up having some limitations.

You should be able to address the watched status using trakt (https://github.com/trakt/Plex-Trakt-Scrobbler). I use that to keep Plex and Emby in sync. Can't see why you couldn't synchronize two plex...

Some of us have old receivers without HDMI audio and aren't ready to pony up the $$$ to buy a new receiver.

The 2500K is still a great processor. I don't think you'll necessary see a big improvement by upgrading to Skylake or even Kaby for that matter. Like you said, if the 960 GTX already has a lot of the...
