    @JimS: Glad to help! Hope the Infuse setup works out for you!

    : Just double checked and I can FF and RR with the Apple Siri remote in Infuse.
    metalheaddad01, I played around with both the Apple Siri remote and the Harmony remote and you are correct...FF and RR work on both remotes. I discovered that if I only quickly press the > button, it only skips ahead. But if I press and hold the > button, a little "1" appears and additional presses go to a max of "4" FF (and likewise, the RR). Thanks for letting me know.

The decoding process itself is standardized between all Dolby/DTS certified products (Infuse is certified and licensed for both) so in the end there is no difference whether this decoding is done by Infuse or your receiver.

    I've tested and compared audio from my DMS and Infuse and I can't tell a single difference with Infuse decoding and my receiver decoding. You just don't get the pretty "TrueHD" showing on the receiver but I can live with that since the audio quality is exactly the same.

    Just double checked and I can FF and RR with the Apple Siri remote in Infuse. I do have the touchpad disabled though so not sure if that makes a difference or not.

    Hope that helps! (For some reason I didn't get a notification that you replied to me so I'll check back periodically to see if there's any further questions!)
    Thanks, I will take a look at the FF and RR again. Have set everything up with my Harmony remote. As for the TrueHD etc. I do hear a huge difference. It may have to do with my sound system. I have 7.1.4 setup and there is a big difference running the same movie (e.g. Transformers: Age of Distinction) between the dolby digital on the Apple TV and my NUC running passthrough using DVDFab Player 6. Both audio is running through my Yamaha receiver. From day one I and several others have never been able to use our DMS with UHD movies using the best quality audio without horrible buffering problems.

    Raethien Thanks for the info. I've researched (and bought) several media servers/streamers looking for the perfect one. I have Dune, Zidoo, Zappiti, DVDFab, Nuc and NVidia and they all have their plusses and minuses. I'm mostly interested in the 'perfect' UHD streamer for my Synology NAS. So far, the only minus that I can see is, as you mentioned, no true audio passthrough/bitstream. Because of the excellent video quality of both HDR and SDR, if Apple bought out Infuse and made it their default player, AND, added passthrough, Apple could charge another $100 per Apple TV and crush all of the companies I listed above. And with Apple support and updates...one could only dream.

    P.S. It would be nice to have the option to choose a model with/without Siri...with/without passthrough.

    @Jims: Pass thru audio is the one real let down with Infuse, Apple doesn't allow it on ATV since they want siri to be able to be mixed in at any given moment. On their page in the forums is a link to go petition Apple to allow it. I was hoping the issue would be resolved with the mac release but I don't think their product allows it on Mac either yet, not sure if it is again a limitation of Apple or something else. If/when they support Mac with full features i would go buy mac minis for every room lol.

    It is a dead product since you can't buy them any more. Just like their DBD Backup program that vanished without a trace. It is stupid of them since they are going with all the streaming downloads....where are people going to store all those downloads? They shoot themselves in the foot for the future of that product!

    @metalheaddad01: I set up my Apple TV 4K (gen 2) with Infuse Pro this morning. Video quality is outstanding. I do have a question though. I've got my ATV hooked up through my Yamaha receiver. Do you know of a way to passthrough the audio on the ATV to receive TrueHD? I can set the ATV to Atmos but that doesn't get me the TrueHD. I can use the 5.1 dolby digital setting but then I don't get the Atmos/TrueHD effect. Any ideas? Also, with Infuse, is there a way to FF movies? Thanks.

    Thanks for the heads up on Infuse Pro. Never heard of it before. Tried it out on my macbook pro and it worked great with my Synology NAS. I have an Apple TV 4K in the sun room. Gonna try it out tomorrow to see if passthrough on my receiver will play atmos and truehd with it. Also want to check out how it delivers on hdr.

    I think you are right...except I think it died long before the pandemic began. Since there are so many other good movie servers out there, my guess is that there haven't been enough sales and thus the lack of any real support for the DMS. Picture wise, the DMS is one of the best for UHD movies, but the lack of support and regular upgrades outweighs the picture quality. If you read this thread in full, you'll read about several other possibilities. DVDFab's Player v.6 is excellent and any NUC PC from 7th gen on (for UHD support) works great. I'm in the course of building a rasberry pi to test that out with Player and Kodi.

    OK thanks. So it sounds like you use RAID 1 without the RAID .
    With Synology it's called "Basic"...similar to "JBOD".

For my main home theater system I'm using 2 separate Intel NUC8i7 mini computers...one for 1080p and one for 2160p. I'm using Kodi 19.1 on both units. For my 1080p files I use Kodi's default player. For the NUC that has my UHD files, I'm using Kodi, but have default the player as DVDFab's Player 6 Ultra. I find the video on UHD files with DVDFab to be on the par with the DMS player. I use 2 different NUCs because 1080p and UHD require different video settings to give the best color etc. for each and it was a pain in the neck to have to change them each time.

    P.S. I should have added that I don't use raid for my servers. I have separate duplicate drives (NTFS format) for each of my server drives.
