Sorry just seen this, notifications are pretty bad on this forum lol.
I didn't know that, I will check it out
Why is because I have been using my PC for my playback needs, and there is no set top box for my content requirements. I hate having to use my PC, its a hassle when I am gaming, or using my PC, and wife wants to watch a movie (a local movie) which she either has to stream from my PC or run direct over hdmi.
So as I mentioned, the reason why is I need Atmos playback, I have 7.2.4 system and I want to use it lol. I also have a 4k TV, and a 1080 PJ, I use, for which I want the best audio/video I can muster from. I dont like the hassle of Physical, my wife does though, so we buy them and rip them to my PC, and she has a stand in the bedroom to store them. So I need Local playback, again UHD, and Atmos. Also not just Atmos, I want the full True HD.
Now the issue, nothing does that. Shield has bad scaling so wont work with my PJ + No Netflix Atmos & ATV wont play the rips with Atmos, on top of that I have tons of PC parts around. I can build a HTPC cheaper than buying both boxes, and do not want to have to deal with 2 boxes.
