Congratulations! I find that having more movies on the system makes it that much more fun to choose.

Thanks guys! Like naylorman32, I will be downloading to my Terra server all the titles in my library that are not already on my Strato. I still have to watch some films on disk in order to have both UHD HDR quality video and TrueHD Atmos or DTS:X MA immersive audio but there are not nearly as many films in that category as there were only a few months ago.

I started experimenting with the "Covers" version of my movies list and rather like it. I figured out that it collects the covers of other films it thinks are similar to the one I have selected and places them in close proximity. Pretty clever! This should be a really strong feature when I am trying to pick among 300-350 films.

Congratulations !

And in case you wish to to transfer the content of your Strato to your Terra server without re-downloading it, you can ask K support or your dealer to enable the replication feature on your Strato. You will then be able to replicate its content to your Terra server. It will be faster than downloading everything again, BUT the downside is that your system won't be available at all during the time of the replication. For a fully loaded 6TB disk on a gigabit network it should be roughly 6 days.

Interesting! I was not aware of that feature!

Would it be more practical or make any difference in long term system stability to just wipe everything off the current player and start from scratch, just re-downloading everything to the Terra server?

I plan to make my Terra server and Strato components in a single Encore System. My Strato is already virtually full, it only has room for two more UHD movies, so I assume that all or most of my downloads after I get the Terra will go to the Terra.

My dream would be that Kscape market a UHD HDR capable disk player that would fully integrate with the other components of an Encore System. Alas, the conventional wisdom seems to be that it won't be happening any time soon and likely not at all. Oh well, I'm grateful for what I have.

No I don't think so. Personally I prefer to have my content in one place this is why I indicated this possibility.

The replication feature was very useful to me when I replaced the two 6TB Strato players of my Encore System(three 24TB Terra servers) with two Strato C players. I simply replicated the content of the two Strato players to the Terra Servers and I didn't have to download everything again.

The last time I did a replication (1U to 3U), I could see content as it was copied to the destination server. Asmofies showed up I could watch them on the new server as long as I had a player connected to it and had REGISTERED the new server prior to starting replication. If you don’t register the system all of the titles that transfer will show as “greyed” out.

The process may have changed for the Encore system.

If you do the replication, then the next step is to delete all the content from the current player so you end up in the same place. For the 3U server, the replication rate was spec’d to be approx. 1 day for each 1TB of data. Mine went slightly faster than this.

You are absolutely right John. I recently replicated between two 3U servers, what you describe is still the case. Don't think that the process is different for the Encore system. But for those having only one player and one server it won't work.

Am I correct in assuming that the only way I could see an integrated list of all my titles would be to make the Terra server and the Strato part of the same Encore System and have it replicate the content on the Strato to the Terra? If so, could I watch content on the Strato with no problem other than the slowing down of the replication process? I wouldn't care how long replication took, so long as I could still watch a title on the Strato without fouling something up. Depending on the answer, I may decide to live with two lists for the time being.

Is there a way to direct all new downloads from the Kscape store to the Terra rather than the Strato? If so, it should be an easy matter to delete a title from the Strato after I watch it and simply re download it to the Terra.
