As I've said, I've no interest in maintaining a NAS network at this stage. It's very hard (if not impossible) to tell the difference between the DVD and my h.264 re-encodings which are less than half the size although I want to do a bit more testing here. If the H.264 files are good enough they will fit on a 750GB SSD which I can place inside the server next to the existing one for music. No network or streaming to worry about.
Of course. This is, I think, a Theta CB HDMI issue. A reboot of the CB ensures the proper output.
As I read the madVR Calibration setting, if madVR is doing a transform from, say, SMPTE to Rec.709 it needs to know the gamma profile of the display for best rendering. Selecting BT.1886 as the gamma for a display calibrated to BT.1886 'gamma' is not possible.
On the GPU power, yes you are right but my processor can handle Lanzcos without a graphics card. That's not bad and likely good enough for a legacy library. For someone like Steve with his massive graphics card, it's a shame to not put that to use with video content given the capabilities of JRiver (and his sunk cost).
My processor is just the Haswell 4570T. It's graphics clock rate is just 200MHz. One could go up the Haswell performance list for significant improvement while still maintain the same TDP (35W) and for likely less than the cost of a decent graphics card.
