Sony 4k Players do both now. the X800 is a too good a player not to sell to everyone for $200 now.

Amen to that. The BDPSx700 models feel like kids' toys compared to that tank. I just do not like the rocker button and the IR sensor that is right behind said dreaded rocker button. Pssshhhh.

I almost wish they would have loaded Android OS onto the 800 or at least the 1000.

IR sensor? Why the heck would you need that? The 800 works FLAWLESSLY IP
I love supporting product that supports me!

With URC CCP remotes? They work flawlessly with IR as well. You just have to deal with the stupid sensor location. :) I might start using blasters again. :P

We do Elan as well, and you have to pay for IP control. That is ridiculousness right there. At least with C4 it is free. Does the 800 do WOL now?

Keeping in mind a recent discussion about YouTube changes "breaking" the ability of some Marantz players to stream YouTube, the VERY operative word in the above statement is "now." Those Marantz players streamed Youtube in a recent "now" that has gone away.

Is it really a good idea to recommend for streaming any devices that are not made primarily for streaming? Or can any streaming source break any streaming device whenever they want to?

I don't think that one should assume that a streaming only device is immune to corporate or Net Neutrality spats.

Nothing is guaranteed to work indefinitely.

Sonys $700 4k Media Server Stopped playing Netflix a while back.... They decided not to fix it....

Everything in the streaming category has a 2-3year lifespan best case scenario. If your spending a lot of money on a disc player. dont do it "because it has apps"

nothing is immune apps might be cool or useful but the future is in no ones control. It is not really in manufacturers interest to create updated firmware for old devices and streaming (internet) services constantly need to update their offerings to deal with new realities.

And this is the no-frills message. Every client needs to be told that available services will change and manufacturers have no incentive to fix old products, not even three month old products.

But that can happen with any device, be it your smart TV (worst choice IMHO since it tends to be the most expensive to replace and harder to circumvent), BD player or stand alone streaming player.....
