Thanks for the response.Expliciate wrote: ↑ From experience using Plex on a DS918+:
The Shield can DirectPlay video H.264 and H265 straight off the NAS.
The only issue is with audio. AAC/EAC is fine, but TrueHD/DTS-MA etc, will require an AVR to decode. Otherwise, it will force transcode the entire video and audio to a compatible format.
As for transcoding, the DS918+ which hardware transcodes 1080p fine, but has trouble with 4K.
So in essence, if my sole purpose is to stream 4k movies to the shield to display in 4k, there'll be issues?
