Yeah I didn't want to do everything with 1 box just doesn't make sense to me..
Just the last thing is Raspberry Pi3 going to do the job well considering it only has 1gb ram? Also with the 1gb ram on it how futureproof is it with running on libreelec on it.. I know newer libreelec/ kodi would require extra ram? Can you upgrade the ram on raspberry Pi 3 in the future? Or what is the option that I have?

Thank you and sorry for the confusing questions.. The posts doesn't answer these questions so
I am asking here..

The RPi3 is not future proofed. It cannot hardware decode any 720/1080/2160p 10bit HEVC or VP9 for example. No HDR support whatsoever. Let alone HDMI 2.0 or 4K.
A dirt cheap 1GB AMLogic S905x box running LibreELEC Kodi will do all that easily, plus it will be noticeably faster than a RPi3.

That is why I linked to AMLogic S905(x) box options previously.
