No, that does not work at all with Android Krypton Kodi. But of course if you dual boot to LibreELEC Kodi Krypton everything works.

For AMLogic devices - only the MINIX U9 and WeTek Hub / Play2 with their unofficial Android TV ROM's have Android Kodi Krypton dynamic refresh switching working properly for smooth 24p video playback.

Yes, Estuary Skin only on regular LibreELEC S905(x) boxes. Choose any other LibreELEC Krypton Skin and you will loose the Dual boot option and have to remove SD card to boot to internal Android.

None of those boxes are going to give you Kodi dynamic refresh switching for smooth video playback.
However the Mi Box has the best Wireless remote for Android TV and does HD audio.

It's why i keep recommending the DIY (ethernet only) 2GB/16GB MECOOL M8S Pro + because it is:
a) cheap
b) can dual boot for some Android TV action with 1080p Netflix, HBO etc 4K Youtube as well.
c) works well with LibreELEC Kodi Krypton for smooth video playback with HD Audio and..
d) with the money you save with the MECOOL you can then buy a really nice MINIX A2 lite, Plug and Play - Wireless remote and end up with a really decent Kodi media player.



** Having said all that for Android Kodi Krypton boxes that do not have working dynamic refresh rate switching this can be setup and it works reasonably well if you do not have any other Kodi option's like superior LibreELEC to use:

"Sync playback to Display" - with cheap Android Hardware.
