I ended up ordering a rasberry pi 3b+ from pishop with the official power supply. I just couldn’t find any one box solution for 3d and a streamer that could do netflix dolby decoding via pcm. Everything out there has at least a CON. And the fact 3D is pretty much dead, you won’t find much support for it outside the open source community when it comes to plex. So I think I’m just going to use it in combination with either a roku ultra or a firetv( with kodi) for dolby decoding to pcm and 4k content. I’m sure everything will be much more mature in a years time.(ala OpenPHT 2.0)
I’ll let you guys know how much of a difference there is between the 3B+ and the rasberry pi 2. I’m thinking the gigabit might help with caching.
I also tried my brother’s appletv. it seems nice with excellent hardware but you need an ios device to cast and that’s a deal breaker for me. The infuse app worked well for direct play on everything but 3D since that’s locked down.
Vive la Rasplex!
can’t wait for your review. I’ve got the RPI2b and other then power outs have never powered it down since launch day. Plays everything other then h.265 without an issue.
Shame the 3B+ had no major updates, still doesn’t do h.265, HDR, 10bit and the gigabit network runs through the usb2.0 so is heavily throttled (think it’s only like 300)
Can’t wait for Kwiboo so have the ROCK64 up and running with Plex, that is exactly what i’m looking for hardware wise.
