From HD Smart D1 to HD Solo
I have a Smart D1 for my home theater and it is doing fine. I've been following this thread since the beginning and enjoy checking and reading it every morning. I'm getting the bug to upgrade to a Solo but not sure if I'll gain anything in my situation, so I would like advise please.
I'm using a Sony VPLHW40ES 1080P projector so no 4K for at least 2 years for me, the high quality 4K projectors are just too expensive right now.
Also, I do not use 3D.
All my BD are full ISO, and a few DVD's with full structure. Everything is on a Lime Technology 10Tb unRAID Server with a hard wired Cat5 network. I have good streaming at over 80Mb speeds
The Smart D1 is connected Redmere HDMI to a Denon X4000 AVR, then to a Darbee, then Projector.
I'm using My Movies on the Smart D1.
I also like to keep my home movies on my server. I notice some of my high bitrate home video struggles at times. Not sure why but I can get around this. My camcorder is 4K but I have to downres to 1080 to play.
So, with my setup do any of you see any advantages to me getting a Solo right now? Possibly faster menu operation? I don't think picture or audio quality would be better? I'm trying to understand if I would benefit from a Solo?
