Buying advice needed
I got a new tv X9500 with eARC and samsung Q950T atmos/ dtsX soundbar.
The android is laggy when it comes to play remuxes.
Is there any media player that supports all three or if not Dolby Vision ; HDR is fine.

Getting a shield is difficult in these times because no one is travelling.

Apple TV 4K is easily available but then will have to run PLEX and the network suffers a bit when the remux plays.Plus will have to use laptop as a server and turn it on every-time
I’ve read about himedia in some posts.

Please recommend a reliable player.
Or can I buy shield 2019 in India?

I need it for local usb playback only. I think it looks good, but doesn’t it have pretty old android version?
Also which app do you use to play the media?
Is it stable with playing remuxes 60-80GB? Its written it plays BD-ISO as well.
Is q10 worth the extra money?

Nividia shield is the best for local play back it has usb, I am using apple tv to play local content from PC using infuse app which is really good, but no atmos support, infuse can direct play from shared folder.

1. For usb playback it will work.
2. Ya android 7 but it not an issue IMO. Since your going use it for local playback
3. Having it's own app called media player (it will play what ever you through at it)
4. I have played 80gb BD-iso i have not found any issue.
5. It plays bd-iso but in some case the BD menu will not work.
6. Main differences are q10 pro has hdd slot and 16gb storage. If you are going to connect you internal hdd then q10 is what you required otherwise q5 pro will do.

Got Himedia Q10pro for brief period and it fails to play few 4k remux files( Just white screen with Audio) tried all possibilities which did not help.Finally i returned it back and settled with Zidoo Z10.Got to know this issue is specific to Himedia models.
Note - Zidoo Z10 plays those files flawlessly.

Its showing 32k pricetag for zidoo z10 at avstore.in . How about XBOX Series S or PS5 Digital edition. Just asking not going to spend this much.
