I don’t want to throw everyone for a loop, but this weekend I switched to Emby.\n\nThere are still a few things I’ll allow Plex to do, like the DVR. Emby has not yet released commercial removal from recordings, but it’s in the works.\n\nEmby on the Shield just has a much more enjoyable interface, and PLEX has been too focused on implementing features I don’t care about, like the free movies that I can watch for free ten other places, and now they’ve announced they’re going to start selling and renting content, too. I don’t want it for that. I want it to be as powerful as possible with MY LIBRARY.\n\nI’d also like to reiterate that I still don’t believe PLEX or Kodi or Emby are doing ANY tone mapping at all. They’re just passing info through. If you were getting tone mapping, I think something was set incorrectly and they were transcoding and you weren’t getting native playback. Correct me if I’m wrong, but there is no evidence of any tone mapping procedure being performed for the purpose of tone mapping.\n\n\nSent from my iPhone using Tapatalk\n\n\nI went with the Z9S for this reason.\nhttps:\/\/www.zidoo.tv\/Product\/index\/model\/Z9S\/target\/2INlOr7QH%2B1KKmVViAFMcQ%3D%3D.html\n\nHandles all BR+4K MKV, handles 3D-BR (that's rare), passes all the HD audio. Info from the Kodi forum:\n\nKodi doesn't run natively, but Zidoo's fork ZDMC Leia & Krypton-based are both available.\nZDMC (Kodi fork) is mostly used a front-end to push media playback to external (native) media player app.\n4K HDR with Max CLL\/FALL infoframe data passthrough\nHDR to SDR mapping\nFully supports HD audio (including ATMOS & DTS:X) and LPCM.\nBest player for full 1080p 3D + 4K support in one\nDeinterlacing for OTA TV has never been a strong performer on this platform.\nOnly SD quality Netflix, Amazon, etc.\n\nWill continue Roku and\/or AppleTV for external content, but not holding my breath that they will fully support my local files so just bit the bullet and went with a good player for that.
