It has worked really well, especially where it matters: video playback is perfect, interlaced or not, whatever the frame rate, with the TV always set correctly. Where it lacks a bit is in boot speed and a bit of lag in the menus but I don't find that hugely important. What is more of a problem is that I'm more frequently these days wishing to play HEVC encoded content and it just can't handle that at all: presumably because of the GT 610 graphics chip. So I'm considering moving to NUC. Is that a good idea? If so, any recommendations for which to choose?

I just scanned my storage. In Australia I have not a singe HVEC recording.
