WeTek Core (24p HD Netflix / HD Audio / Lollipop / OpenELEC / 4K / HEVC)
(2015-12-16, 08:41)slot47 Wrote: Krade: Personally, I am finding that the WeTek Core is not quite meeting my expectations as far as being completely family friendly. I find the Google Nexus Player to be easier to use for the family, despite its limitations. I'm a computer geek, so I can manage through the Android OS, but I miss the simplicity of the ATV for the less technically inclined. One of the major benefits of the WeTek Core is its ability to access the main Google Play store rather than the limited Android TV app store. Of course, there are several other benefits, including superior deinterlacing for live TV sources and recordings, ethernet port, SDCard slot, USB ports.

-The Nexus Player fails poorly in terms of deinterlacing live TV and it is annoying to have to use a USB OTG cable to add a USB hub to support ethernet and Logitech K400. However, it is(was) the cheapest option(rather hard to find anywhere in Canada at the moment) at $80 CDN plus the cost of the above peripherals($45), about $125 total.

-The WeTek Core was about $150 CDN shipped to my door from Slovenia in 2 days, which is pretty awesome service if you ask me.

-Then there is the amazing Nvidia Shield Android TV which is currently about $300CDN(not the PRO version), so it is very difficult to justify spending double the money. I know that this device supports Netflix HD and 5.1 surround sound via Dolby Digital Plus passthrough.

-Realistically, the next option to consider for family friendliness is the new ATV4($225), especially considering that DaVilla has created a fork of KODI(no add-on support) for purchase in the TVOS app store(MrMC).

Perhaps Wrxtasy can offer some opinions as to which device has better support for deinterlacing? The new ATV4 or the Nvidia Shield Android TV?

This issue of having a device that is remote friendly, works well with KODI(quality deinterlacing) and can be used for Netflix has been plaguing me for quite a while. The result has simply been to use one device for KODI and something like a PS3 for netflix, but isn't it awesome when everything is available on the same box :-) Peace

Deinterlacing on the shield is very good, but not as good as the core imo, the Core does aml deinterlacing which is superb. It's almost as good as my Chromebox.

I have both a sheild and a core, for ease of use (and excellent Netflix) the shield wins, but as you say it's twice the price.

So far I've found the core excellent, and as wextasy says ChristianTroy is very reactive. The only downside is the apps are not as remote friendly as the shield. It's such as shame that Netflix, BBC and other don't allow the android TV versions to be more widely available.
