For all to take note that $279 offer @ Mustafa is over.
The price is backed to $319.
If u r looking for under $300 options, u r left with 2. The LG up970 that's currently under clearance @ courts, and the Xbox One S that's also going under clearance@ courts.

Just wondering what's the format for a USB drive? EXfat? How big can one use?
I've been having trouble and have only managed to use a 2Gb USB on it. It doesn't seem to recognise any other sizes or for that matter other USB sticks..

Hi all

I have the X800M2 and it's a brilliant device. Sound quality is superb and same goes for the pic quality. User interface is rudimentary and it came with Netflix and YouTube 4k loaded.  I cannot load Amazon Prime Video as Sony won't allow me to register on Sony Essentials if outside US. Power supply is 120v, but it runs at 15w so a cheap converter works well.
Will need to reset the divice once running though VPN to get the benefit of 4K streams from the other providers.

This is what I could get from the Netflix site. Looks like the latest addition are the 2019 Panasonic and Toshiba tvs

Apple TV 4K (requires tvOS 12 or later)

LG OLED TVs (2017 or newer models)

Panasonic TVs (2019 or newer models)

Pixela 4K Smart Tuner

Sony BRAVIA Android TVs (2018 or newer models)

Toshiba TVs (2019 or newer models)

Vizio TVs (2018 or newer models)

Windows 10 computer or tablet (requires Windows 10 RS3 Build 16299 or later)

Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X

For TV to support Netflix Atmos, I guess it must have eARC for both TV and AVR.

I think ARC can support lossy, eARC support lossless. Netflix app so far I believe is lossy or "perceptually transparent".

Not sure as I am using Xbox One X which "make every Netflix show to be Atmos" ..Lol

The x700 comes with two HDMI ports
- one for audio - to your AVR
- one for video direct to your TV

OR...

Buy a new amp! It's time la... almost 10 years old... :)
