START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)
I have been looking into a solution that will allow me to replace the roku2 for watching uk on demand TV and my HTPC for movies (1K/4K) & lossless HD music playback. HDR and 3D would be nice to have for future upgrade as currently I'm still in love with my reference Kuro pioneer TV. Maybe 2018 will be year for OLED screen upgrade.

The plan is to use the current HTPC as a fileserver and have it remotely stored to minimise noise to the TV room. Ethernet will be used for connectivity.

I came across the new Mele Apollo PC and it seems to tick all the boxes.
My concerns are whether the onboard fixed 4gb memory will be enough to run w10 and 4K movies and
Also will the Intel firmware upgrades also work on this to fix known audio pass through issues etc.

What are your thoughts on this solution ?
