Do you know if there has been any discussion about converting the HDMI in port to be a second HDMI out with the bitstream update. I'm in the same boat so I'm on the fence about getting one.The Samsung K8500 is already $150 less than a year ago. Although I guess a Gen2 model is coming soon.
The XBOne S is a decent UHD BD player. But I personally prefer to use a stand alone. If nothing else just for the lower power usage. Although since the XBOne S doesn;t have two HDMI outputs, it's necessary for me to use a stand alone player for me to get HDR and HD audio since my speaker bar is only HDMi 2.0 and not HDMi 2.0a.
