Would this be a good upgrade or would you guys recommended something else?
My main requirement is 4k and HDR.

Thanks
If you want HDR to work out of the box, then Intel is not an option. It is also not clear when Kodi will support HDR playback on Windows or Linux.

nVIDIA Shield, Zidoo X9S, Himedia Q5/Q10, the new RTD1295 boxes are your options for HDR playback as it is now.

Already own the Shield, while yes HDR works out of the box its PQ is not worth having that.
Cyberlink has announced UltraHD bluray so as long as you have Windows on the mini PC thats sorted.
I guess it depends on how long I am willing to wait for Kodi to take advantage.

How much more better PQ can a Kodi Windows box have over Android is my main ask.
