If i understand they use 6 LCR how usually 3 or 5 or 7 but 6 it’s strange for me maybe it’s my less knowledge but hope he enjoy his room

I’m thinking about adding another Strato in a different room, does it need to be hardwired to connect with my strato in my main system? Or can it be used over WiFi?

New feature article to share. I'm hoping Bill starts covering Kaleidescape regularly going forward. Give him some site visits.

Good article. Unfortunately disc players and discs will continue to decline and run out in the next probably few years. Covid-19 has perhaps accellerated this.

I think with all this Kaleisdescape has a bright future!

Pray for all of our healthcare providers, food manufacturing and delivery workers, all of whom are doing their best at great risk to help us survive the current Covid-19 virus crisis.

Both players need to be hardwired into your network. Also, all switches need to be 1G. SJ

Great article for sure. I have been thinking physical discs will eventually go away as well, which is why I invested in Kaleidescape. It's a great system, but a huge miss is that when we purchase a title from Kaleidescape, we are not given a digital token/rights to stream the content on another service, like when purchasing a physical disc.

Kaleidescape REALLY needs to fix that soon. Once it is, I would most likely purchase most of my titles from the K-Store. Until then, it's the shiny disc.

I love my Strato yet if all I had was the Kaleidescape store as my choice I'd not be in this hobby very long.

How do you guys decide whether to wait for a movie to show up in the KStore (with no prediction of when a certain title may be available) vs springing for the shiny disc? For example, Gandhi 4K or the Laurel and Hardy restored movies or so many others that are coming out on Shiny discs but there's no clear indication of when these may be available in KStore.....

Do whatever feels right for you. Nothing wrong with having discs for movies you care about. No too much different than non K owners who want the 350+ movies available on 4K from K that our not available on disc... SJ
