Re: Replacement

There's only one that would be considered equivalent, and that would be the Ultra. It's the only one with an Ethernet jack and a USB port. The latest Ultra, that will be available tomorrow, updates the USB port to 3.0, but removes the SD card slot. Personally, I've never used the SD card in any of my players. The new Ultra also adds Dolby Vision and AC-4 audio support. If DV isn't important to you, the currently available version (model 4670) might be on sale from some locations since the new one is coming.

Re: Replacement

Looked and so far the only 4670 is the same price as the new Ultra unless refurbished <?> there are 2 Ultras one is LT but seems to have more features.

Going to Walmart Saturday and will return with one and hope it solves my issue with the 4

The LT actually has less features. Unless the Wiki is wrong, it doesn't have a USB port and has half the operating memory (1GB vs. 2GB).
