    Hey guys,
    I’m after some advice. I currently have a WD tv live box that has served me well for many a year. Most of my BD collection gets ripped to Nas and the disks are stored in the loft as we have a smallish lounge and a very head strong toddler. The WD generally doesn’t miss a beat but I’ve started moving to UHDs.
    Went out and got the Sony x800 which again was lovely but now the UHDs are starting to take up space that I just don’t have. So I wanted to rip them as well but have nothing to play them back on.
    I’m after a media streaming box that can handle UHD playback that isn’t going to cost more than the TV lol.
    I’m not overly fussed about metadata or built in apps like Netflix or YouTube as I get these through either sky box or TV. What’s out there at the moment?

    Fire TV 4K running Plex or Kodi works for me.

    Ideally I’d like to stay away from having to load software onto a third party device.
    Something like the Dune range maybe

    just came across the Zidoo range as well and they seem very extensive in this department.
