This player is still running and working wonderfully well.

I thought i will upgrade my player and get a new one from U.S (since my bro is coming in few months)

Suggest a good player which can play 4k videos , HDR10 / 10+ , DV files etc ..and play all kinds of HD-audio... atmos ..etc without any problem.

I mostly run my movies off my usb ext hdd.

Dont like streaming from prime..etc.

how is nvidia shield pro 2019 ?

N vidia pro .or X Box one s.
I feel X Box one has netter sound especially the soun seperation ,bass and vocal clarity.
I have both .now I'm using x no for hdd downloaded content, Netflix and prime.
I feel nothing beats it .can play download 80 gb flawlessly
.it's built in media player is excellent only problem being I'm unable to get subtitles with it.
I tried everything which is on Google but no results.
Can someone please help me.
You can get pre-owned X Box one s for 18-20 k.
Not series s or X

I too have both Nvidia Shield Pro 2019 and Xbox Series X.

Go gor Nvidia shield, sure Xbox has slightly better sound but it doesn't support true HD files through HDD. Those true quality Blu ray files are useless to then. Hoping to get this fixed soon.

Nvidia shield is really capable device. Throw anything at it and it will play with Kodi or any other good players which are available.

Hey thanks for the update, I remember last time when I checked I was not able to play Dolby Atmos True HD. This was before getting the Nvida Shield.
I checked it now, can confirm my Xbox series X with Media Player, Movies & TV, VLC all play Dolby Atmos True HD and DTSX Imax Enhanced movies too.

But Media Player has a horrible gray banding which is black usually. Movies & TV when I try switching to DTS crashes the Xbox. Some DTS MA movies I am not able to play at all, this is on all 3 software which play easily on the Nvidia Shield.

Someone having a Xbox now and wants to go for Shield, would suggest stick to Xbox now. Things were different back then.

If someone doesn't own any of these can go with Xbox, you get to play games too on it.
