Next issue might be the WIFI connection of the tablet - will it be stable enough and have the required speed everywhere in your house to stream a high bitrate bluray and send the transcoded stream? Also, who would like to have a clunky dongle attatched to his tablet that does the transcoding? I'd rather have some random box hidden in my home do the heavy lifting - ideally a powerful NAS that also holds my media. The complete package of box and tablet could still be plug and play.

thanks for the input

Transcoding is out the window too much to go at

The dongle would be plugged in hidden behind the TV

First we had kodi installed on the tablet and was streaming with UPnP/DLNA to this dongle, it works great for most films and TV shows in perfect quality. BUT some live TV feeds and addons will not work due to the file type, it will not play on TV's

The second idea was to have kodi installed on the TV dongle itself and to send the it (reverse to the above idea) to the tablet instead. Problem with this is, by default you need to turn on your TV do everything there and to set up streaming to the tablet. Not very user friendly

So what im thinking now is I need a remote desktop app to control the dongle from the tablet that goes through UPnP. Unfortunately there is nothing out there that is user friendly out of the box.

Shame really, having kodi on a PC is great, but we wanted to make a 'center hub' set up on this tablet or (any android device really) so you can have multiple installations of kodi on PC, tablet, TV all running and working together so you can watch and restart movies on different sources from the same place and everything else that comes with MySQL plus all the other DLNA features like adding speakers and so on. But with TV's not playing all formats we need at to have the installation of kodi there at the TV end.

I know there will be a solution for this but i think people are misunderstanding what im going for and not wishing to help. There are solutions for a lot of these things but nothing that ties them all together and nothing that can be done at the push of a button.
