From what I understand, MrMC is making a push to iOS and tvOS with high quality scalers so there may be some competition for Infuse and this model won't work when MrMC doesn't require you to subscribe to anything to get any new version and the scaling for for non UHD content is better.

Right now I think Infuse is the best out there for tvOS, but their subscription model will hurt against other players in the future once they mature and have more features. I am not going to subscribe, nor will I buy new versions continuously.

I think I'm paying $1 a month for the Infuse subscription. I guess I need to check to see if that was a special price or if they will start charging me more.

Nope, that’s the every day price. That’s what I’m doing until something better comes along. I’m hoping Plex steps up and improves their iOS app since I’m a life member.

MrMC has been around for awhile. If you don’t care about interface then it’s the one to get. Infuse IMO has the better interface which is why I chose it. I give both as viable options de ending on needs/wants of the end user.

The subscription model isn’t for everyone, but I don’t think they are “hurting”, as that is what most are moving towards to keep as a viable solution. You can also do a one time “lifetime” subscription with Infuse and you’re done paying as long as the app remains around.

No need to ever use the MrMC interface, just use the Plex addon which IMO is better then the Infuse interface. Much easier to scroll through 100s of movies using the A-Z scroll. Also prefer Plex's playlists vs the way Infuse sorts by Genre.

You can set it to automatically load plex when you open the app.

ok what threw me was the reference to "downgrade" - I'm not looking to downgrade. I'm looking to update.

I think I figured out my issue though - the drive is not connected to an IDE-friendly SATA port so I'll need to relocate it. For my xw4600 it looks like only 0 and 2 can be set in IDE

Yeah, I have heard the Plex integration is better for MrMC. I don’t use Plex so for me, it wouldn’t work.

Downgrade IS updating. In most cases you need to downgrade to a friendly firmware. You do this by updating to a lower number firmware number which technically is downgrading. Follow the instructions, they work.

As already mentioned by @Ph8te ...

Under no circumstances should you (or anyone else) install any of ASUS's newer firmware's, as they will make your drive not UHD disc back-up friendly!

What is the advantage over using the native Plex app? I'm pretty sure I tried that with MrMC but I liked the native Plex interface over the Plex interface in MrMC.

Ok but correct me if I’m wrong but the firmware is from your same drive.

If I try to update my drive with that firmware do I brick my drive?

I had an older laptop that only has an external esata port so I just used an esata to sata cable. Once I got the right firmware and followed the Windows/Automatic method of worked like a charm. Now I’m just trying to figure out how to convert my real UHD drive (BU40N) as it flashes correctly, but won’t eject.

Read the instructions it tells you exactly what to upgrade it with/to. If you don’t feel comfortable doing it, you may want to pay someone to do it for you. There are folks on the makemkv forums that offer this service.

re flashing : how problematic is 64 bit vs 32 bit? - both of my towers are 64 bit.

The Win7 PE should emulate 32 bit, yes?

Direct plays pretty much everything. Tons more options for playback and A/V settings. Full TrueHD and DTS-HD audio support with passthrough (no objects though), and more.

Thing is MrMC hooks into Apple’s AVfoundation API for very high quality upscaling while Infuse does not. This means HD and SD content looks a lot better. For UHD content this isn’t an issue but a lot of my content is still 1080p or lower. Infuse will have to up their game to compete in that area.

Direct play with Apple AVfoundation API support for very high quality upscaling. The plex app transcodes a lot of content because the Apple TV doesn’t play it natively.

Passthrough is disabled on Apple TV(since tvOS 11.3)but works fine on the shield (with atmos and DTS:X support).

Yes. When you boot off the Win 7 PE thumb drive it will be in 32 bit.

I get the same thing with the native Plex app. And Atmos and DTS:X support with the native plex app.

Although now that I think about it, I'm not sure what device we are talking about. The Plex app is different on different devices. I was thinking about the Plex app on my Shield TV.

Although now that I think about it, I'm not sure what device we are talking about. The Plex app is different on different devices. I was thinking about the Plex app on my Shield TV.
Yes - the Plex app on the nVidia Shield does Atmos and DTS:X soundtracks, where the Plex app on the Roku does not.

Ah, I was talking about the ATV. I actually preferred the Plex app on the Shield to MrMC + plex addon.

Oh wow I've never even heard of MrMC before today. Have I been living under a rock? How does MrMC compare to Kodi on the Shield? I have been using Kodi + Emby addon for years and LOVE it! Nothing really can compare. Even the native Emby app for Android TV (although the UI is beautiful) has lacked IMO - particularly the lackluster refresh rate switching Emby devs implemented a year or so ago.

MrMC has the developer of SPMC on the shield as a member of the team now. SPMC was better than Kodi to many when it was being developed. MrMC supports higher quality scalers than Kodi with current versions that makes upscaling better. I use MrMC by itself but it does support plex as an add-on.

Awesome! Purchased! I see it supports Emby Client. Trying it out now.
