Had an extra great experience with Channels DVR today. I dropped some 4K DJI drone video into my imports directory, re-scanned for new files, and the Fire TV 4K stick (on the local network wi-fi) just simply played it on a 4K TV in all it's full resolution glory. No transcoding, no fuss, no judder, no pausing, just played it perfectly.
When I tried the same thing on another Fire TV stick (non-4K) the playing failed, so I flipped on the 1080 transcoding for local network and it played just fine.
That is really great stuff. Thanks to the developers.
