Hello, I've been wanting to jump into GTV for a long time now but kept holding off for a Google-made/"Nexus" device. When the Chromecast got released I impulse bought it but am now having second thoughts. I plan to drop my cable subscription so I'm not interested in cable integration. The things I want to do are rent movies through Google Play, Netflix, and Plex. I've been using Plex via my TV with DLNA and wired ethernet. I don't think it needs to do any transcoding to play MKVs since the TV will play them natively if you just rename them to AVI, and the TV provides options for DTS and Dolby audio output over optical. So basically the quality is superb, no artifacting, etc. I know Plex hasn't added support for the Chromecast yet, but I'm just concerned that between any transcoding that is necessary and the wireless connection, there will be some drop in quality compared to what I'm used to now. Speedtest shows 20 Mbps on my tablet over WiFi so that sounds sufficient, but I've just never trusted WiFi for high quality HD streaming. So I am wondering if a wired Co-Star would provide a better experience. Can anyone detail for me what it is like for you with Plex? Do you see video artifacts, how are AC3 and DTS handled, etc. I don't really mind if the Co-Star does pass-through or decodes itself, just as long as I don't have to use Pro Logic on my receiver to fake surround. Please comment on other things as well like app stability, freezing, start-up time, etc. If any those are bad the SO will probably reject it right away. I'm hoping to decide in the next day or two whether to return the Chromecast and pick up a Co-Star now, or to keep the Chromecast and just wait and see how well it works for Plex and maybe what sort of GTV devices come out next year. Thanks for any help!
