Thanks so much for your reply! I had posed the question about the 3.0 hub here and on other forums and was beginning to think that I was the only one using multiple drives this way LOL...Am I correct in assuming you are setup this way? For my use case, I only watch TV in my living room on an NVIDIA SHIELD/ KODI setup with it's own HUB and library. In my HT, I only watch movies on a separate SHIELD/KODI library attached directly to a 3.0 8 port hub so HT4.0's limitation of not differentiating movies and tv will not be a problem. I was originally going to go the ZDMC route that you mentioned because, as I understand it, it benefits from the Z10 engine, and delivers the same quality picture as the internal player. Of course, I'm looking to gain an upgrade from the SHIELD in this regard. Although, from what I understand, I will have to keep the SHIELD in my stack for the rare occasions that I use NETFLIX/PRIME streaming apps. Has anyone tried using the NETFLIX KODI addon? Of course, the goal is to migrate over to HT4.0 as it is actively being supported by an obviously dedicated team.
