you guys still buying discs?
dont know when last I actually used ny blu ray player
Internet Copy = 2 channel compressed crap sound
Blu-ray = 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio or Dolby True HD.

So ja, for me its basically about the audio. I cannot enjoy my setup with nonsense audio.

Heh. I wanted to watch an old BluRay the other day, stuck it in the player and then remembered that the player actually stopped playing BluRays in 2016. And then it actually played the BluRay. I was surprised. To be honest if I use my BluRay player 5 times in a year, that's a lot.

I rip all my BluRays to disk and that goes into my Plex library. Use the PS4 to watch them if I want to watch the extra features.
When you rip the blurays does it still have the original audio?, When looking at torrents the moment it includes the "HD" channels the file size is 10gb+

Yes, it's an exact copy of the audio and video from the disk in an MKV container.

I use MakeMKV, you can chose which audio and subtitle tracks you want to copy over.

Reviews say it works with very few games, mostly only Samsung specific ones. Can anyone confirm?
Probably, I got a muvit android game controller and its ***. Zero compatibility with games and the phone thinks this thing is a keyboard. What I found is that most games don't bother building in controller support.

I saw a youtube video of this thing working on PC but even then I don't think its worth it.
