I. now have 2 Dune HD PRO 4K media players, and a Roku for streaming. I stream my movies from USB HDDs using Dune or Plex, and stream my music using Roon Rock via my NUCs or using Airplay on my AVP. So far all work great.
Yamaha CX-A5100, 3 K402MEHs, 4 Klipsch RP150Ms, 4 Klipsch RP160Ms, 1 3 channel biamp amp, 2 Yamaha P2500s, PS3, XBoxOne, Monoprice speaker wire, and XLR cables, 2 Furman filters, ProJect RPM 1.3 Carbon Turntable, Darbee Darcet, LG 86"" 4k fp

I am in the process of switching my whole collection to a NAS server using 1:1 MKV files of my discs.  

I am using a Nvidia Shield Pro and the Emby server

Just got things kicked off yesterday and it works awesome! so cool having all my media accessible while sitting in the theater and not staring at a bunch of disc cases lol.

Now the not so fun opart begins of putting all 400+ 4k discs onto the server

Instead of staring at " a bunch of disc cases ", you can stare at a screen full of cover photos / icons. I would have 746 disc to digitize - and I don't have any time now.

and it tells me what its about (great for the kids/wife) what time it will end if i start it now.  the rotten tomato score, and if i don't feel like watching it after a few minutes i can easily switch to something else. if i stop a mive in the middle and come back later its guaranteed to pickup where i left off (some discs dont offer this).  I can access the files from any room in the house. lots of advantages imho 

i have to digitize more than you. (425 4K and 500+ bluray)..but its a few clicks then go away for a while to come back.  not like im staring at the progress bar lmao..
but to each his own :)

I find it very cool

I use Shield Pro in HT and Roku Ultra in family room. I use hard disc in HT, but have the digital copy on Vudu. So if traveling, I can access movies on Vudu.
