START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated January 2020)
For the last 2 years our daily player is a ASUS CHROMEBOX-M004U Celeron 2955U (1.4 GHz) with 4 GB running LibreElec (jarvis?) It's not perfect but works with our HD Homerun over the air and plays most everything OK - we use a Flirc remote adapter. I do have a RPI2 that plays most everything really well but is extremely slow updating the library - it takes hours. We also have various Roku models that don't get used too often as they can not handle many of our home videos, and we canceled Netflix.. ( Roku does not do Kodi and we prefer Kodi)

As I get my Christmas want list together I have been considering adding the the new Xiaomi 'Mi Box'. I really can not add something very expensive like a new NUC or a new, higher powered Chromebox or even the Nvidia shield. I like the idea of Android TV, as it could also replace our main Roku 3 that we do not use too often these days. The $69.00 Xiaomi 'Mi Box' really sounds good, but I know some other low cost kodi boxes are better supported.

Would the new Xiaomi 'Mi Box' be best or Odroid c2 etc? I don't really need Netfilx but may want to sign up again.
