Is deinterlacing needed, as that will narrow the field considerably, from Post #1....

Q. I need a device with proper video deinterlacing for Over the Air (OTA) TV streaming from my HD Homerun or PVR server ?
  • RPi's.
  • Intel Hardware
  • All AMLogic chipset based boxes, eg the WeTek, MINIX, ODROID devices plus others.
  • nVIDIA Shield but only for ATSC / US users only !

Personally if you only need Kodi video playback from a NAS I would not bother with Android at all. LibreELEC all the way.
As an example of 4K colorspace issues with the Shield:
  • There are now a bunch of users complaining about poor quality Video Upscaling output with the Shield, see HERE for details.
Also as a general observation newly released Android devices are prone to bugs. And then when Google upgrades the Android OS, frequently.
You repeat the bug busting process all over again. Its a never ending cycle.

Nope no deinterlacing or fancy tv stuff needed. Almost exclusively watch stuff from my NAS. I can stream tv via my Chromecast if needed.

Edit: You are right about not needing android. I do my gaming etc. on other platforms, and just want a pure kodi box, but it should be 4k capable. hmm choices choices
