    If you need a PC Blu-ray drive that can read 4K discs, I can hook you up. LG/Asus have cock-blocked everyone with their current drive firmware, but it's possible to change the firmware to allow you to read/rip UHD/4K blu-rays. I have figured out that process.

    I've ripped all of our BluRay discs (wheter they are UHD or not) as ISO files. With an ISO file you have a full backup of each disc. Using the ISO file, and I can create whatever type of video format/bitrate I want, which is them streamed over the network to the TVs.

    Thanks man. Since I will never have the opportunity to build a garage, and build a tool chest (and the skills) capable doing a major car but this is my second choice and one my wife supports more so than hot rodding unfortunately.

    I'll give you a hint if its the wife being the cock block though. Just keep adding speakers to the living room tv and nudging out room for her personal interests, pictures, and so forth. Next thing you know she's telling you that if you want to keep adding speakers to the living room you should just build a room in the basement for it. LOL!

    Appreciate the offer. I'm good in that aspect. No issues paying for a movie. I use VUDU when I buy one so I can protect the disks unless I want to watch the movie with fully uncompressed. The DVD player and the TV both have VUDU access on them. The TV upgrade of VUDU supports UHD though the DVD unit will not and the app is not upgradable for some reason. I just need to get the audio return set up so I can play back into the head unit from the TV as the source. I plan to KISS and have run an optic cable to provide an audio out return from the TV into AUDIO1 input and set it up for optical connection. Just a matter of getting the connections terminated and make the setup changes on the YAMAHA unit.

    I've seen the various streaming/hosting/digital copy repositories come and go. Mostly they go. All the Disney movies sold for a decade+ had a promised digital copy that you could stream- not anymore. That's shit gone and dead. After watching a half dozen similar services simply vanish, I decided I'm just going to create my own. It will always work, even when the internet is down.

    I'm at approx 4 TB of data on my NAS, holding around 125 BR discs ISO backups + 4K encoded files of the main movie.

    Data hoarding is the new hotness! He who dies with the most data wins.

    HA! Thats a good one. I may investigate this further then. I just assumed those cloud systems or whatever they are stayed active forever, though I know nothing is forever which is why I prefer software in hard copy form as well as movies and music. As long as you don't break it you still have it. I have movies from 20+ years ago that are fine. Storage is the only issue, but people who like to collect books have the same problem, so I guess I will simply become like a book hoarder in the meanwhile. I just don't trust PC's. Hard drives crash, hardware fails, etc. According to the guys at Alamo the future for movies is streaming so even HD storage may well become a thing of the past. Just buy a Roku box, plug it into an ethernet cable and away you go. OR use the TV if you prefer.

    You get terrible bitrate streams from them though. It's fine for the average viewer on an average panel, but when you have a really good setup with a big scrren- you can tell.

    The best possible source for movies right now is playing them from a UHD disc or .the iso file directly. I don't see that changing for quite a while. It's quite possible the streaming quality is going to get worse as they clamp down on bandwidth.
