First post on the forums. I have been reading a lot of reviews and forum posts but confused and lost! Would you please recommend me several alternatives for my needs:
Setup: source (searching) > denon s730h receiver (hdcp 2.2 and atmos capable) > 4k projector and 5.1.2 atmos speakers
What I need / am looking for:
a. Netflix 4k HDR + atmos + if possible auto frame rate switching.
b. Able to play 4k HDR + passthrough atmos (lossless) via hard disk (file sizes will be big so NTFS is required) and/or using Kodi.
c. Able to use/play IPTV.
d. ethernet connection.
e. cost: as low as possible
I thought of :
- Apple TV 4k and firestick tv 4k but they are lacking (b),
- using my pc (ryzen 2200g) but AMD haven't released playready drivers for Raven Ridge APU's and I found investing in a RX550 or higher polaris cards or gtx 1050 cards to be expensive and they could very well be cumbersome (drivers, windows issues, etc.),
- not sure about S905D or S912 based android boxes (I have a mecool ms8 pro + and netflix is down once again - twice this year - due to licensing issues) but I am open for a reliable one.
So, can you please recommend something suitable for me or share your thoughts.
