Re: UPNP is convenient.
My point is the "Joe Stupid" doesn't have to be STUPID to get caught up in this. Not literally that doctors and professors are a special case. I thought you may have realised this, but obviously I have to spell it out to you.
"They should go to the IT professional because they are the experts" - So that includes everyone who wants to plug in a PS4 and just have it work? You are living in cloud cuckoo land.
"Standards would be great if they were universal, applied properly, and adhered to by ALL manufacturers and developers" - Correct, and?
