My HTPC setup at home!
#36
Been meaning to do this for AGES!!!

Plex never got used, so the VM is still around, but not switched on in Hyper-V. 

Amazon and Netflix are working brilliantly, to the point I'm buying digital copies of movies from Amazon, and moving the STRM file/folder onto My Movies shared folder on the VM that is called Media Server. 

I have been playing about with RetroPie, and was able to completely hide ALL aspects of the Raspberry Pi within the cmdline.txt file, so I then wondered if I could do the same with Libreelec. I can, and have! Here be what you need to hide the rainbow, the text etc so that it silently boots, with just the logo and then into Kodi. Obviously, when you update Libreelec there will be no way of knowing how far the update takes, but after a couple of minutes, just look at the system info and Libreelec info to make sure. This makes Libreelec truly set-top box like!

For cmdline.txt, add this:
Code:
quiet console=tty3 vt.global_cursor_default=0
In config.txt add this at the end:
Code:
disable_splash=1

In advancedsettings.xml I have disabled the Kodi Splash Screen, as it 'looks' like it boots quicker!
Code:
<splash>false</splash>

Now there are times that people STILL ask me about 'what build' I'm using, so I have created my own custom splash screen, which basically says it all! If people want it, I'm more than happy to share the PSD file for you to use.

Server: Ubuntu Server 22TB HDD running SAMBA
Kodi: 4 Raspberry Pi 3 running Libreelec -  on the main PC - running Linux Mint
