I have a mix of Samsung, Sony and the Elite. Now I no longer need to worry about updating apps in TVs and no one is asking me "hey how do i access netflix etc" or "hey the TV app is not working".
Roku stick is the way to go IMO. Much simpler and intuitive interface than the Fire Stick.

I just moved it out and have been watching the set for the past week. It works perfectly and looks fantastic.

The ISF calibration information held and my collection looks amazing.
I've been re-watching favourite films from the last few years ( which I watched on a 54" Panasonic plasma ) and it's like seeing them for the first time.
Why was it in storage for 5 years if you don't mind me asking...

In an attempt to achieve image perfection, I was experimenting with the remote in “Engineering Mode” Somehow I tore open a small slit in the fabric of time/space and was catapulted 5 years into the future. My family, unaware of my “whenabouts”©️ preserved the Pro-70X5 in a giant L shaped storage unit, with the hope that I would one day return.

Before everyone challenges my attempt to copyright “whenabouts” I might add that during the five years in your present, I ping ponged forwards and back in time as far as 1975 or earlier, so who really knows?

The Netflix “App” always looked terrible on the Sharp. I don’t mean the playback, I mean the GUI. It looked like cheap video. I always sourced Netflix and YouTube from somewhere else.
Apple TV always looked great. I’m currently using the Apple TV 4K ( model number not resolution )
