Those aren't Android TV boxes. They run the tablet version of Android and not Android TV. They are basically junk.

Look into building a pfSense router. All you need is a computer with two network connections (for WAN and LAN). It makes most other routers look like kids toys.

Once UHD is cracked (for real this time) maybe they can mux in that audio to the video of a Blu-ray rip.

The Atmos track was supposed to be the proof since it was only available on the UHD version. However, the whole thing seems off so it would be safe to assume the encryption on every other disc...

Actually as a streaming box a HTPC is not the best. Most streaming sites limit the playback audio and/or video quality on a PC. Then you lose a remote friendly interface. Just try to get full audio...

A stand-alone Blu-ray player was cheaper than a HTPC able to play optical discs after about the first year or so. The license for the software player was more than many stand-alone players. With...

Obviously Plex doesn't transcode on every client so I assume you mean the FireTV. Plex on the Shield does direct playback of DTS, DTS-MA, and DTS-X (and DD, TrueHD, and Atmos).

Size isn't an issue with UHD. The fact that the encryption hasn't been cracked for us to rip the discs is the issue.

You'll need a new Kaby Lake i5 and motherboard plus the hard to obtain UHD optical drive. Not to mention buying PowerDVD 17. I'm not sure what you would gain over a stand-alone player even if it...

Does your HTPC meet the minimum requirements for PowerDVD 17? If not then you may end up spending much more than buying a stand-alone player.

SnapRAID isn't destructive to your current data. You just need to dedicate a drive for parity the same as unRAID. You can try out SnapRAID free and not have to format any drives.

You'll reformat them as part of adding them to unRAID. I you are needing to keep your data on the drives then you'll need a different solution (or more new drives).
