START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)
(2017-12-13, 05:10)Knocks Wrote: Hi, I am now leaning towards the Vero 4K and have a few questions.

1) Do you have to use Ethernet to stream a 40-50GB BDremux?
2) Does OSMC differ visually from vanilla Kodi?  How far behind official Kodi releases is the OSMC developer?  I like running beta Kodi releases and don't really want to wait for final releases to experience new features.
3) Is Vero 4K competitive pricewise with other top Kodi boxes?
4) I have always used SMB and am not familiar with using other types of networking for media streaming.  Is there a learning curve and would I be missing out on anything by switching from SMB if I went the Vero 4K route?
5) Does using IR for the remote (instead of bluetooth) mean that I can't mount the box behind a wall-mounted TV?
6) Is the Mi aftermarket remote compatible with Vero 4K?
1. File size is not the relevant parameter, overall bitrate is. I always recommend wired for media watching, YMMV with wireless.

2. OSMC has it's own skin, but you can install any Kodi skin and have it look like any other Kodi install. There are a couple of extra menu items for OSMC's config utilities.

3. For what you get, I think it is.

4. There is no reason to stop using SMB with Vero 4K

5. It depends, some IR transmitters are strong and the receivers are sensitive, they may work around corners. Some aren't.

6. Which Mi remote? If it is bluetooth it should work.
