Currently have Raspberry pi 3 running libreelec krypton on wifi. ISP delivers 100mbps. Am getting Google Wifi points to ethernet raspberry pi.
Looking at (to upgrade):
Rock 64 / Libre board / [or other recommendations].
Which one will run Kodi best on SD card, and.....have Playstation Vue which I have to cast, but thinking if I get a SBC with Android capabilities, can I install Android, (possibly keep Libreelec [2 OS] get playstore, and download the Playstation Vue App
so I don't have to cast anymore?
To be honest after looking at the Google Playstore, I'm not sure which Android platforms the Playstation Vue App works properly with.

But to be certain any Android device that needs to stream paid for, copy protected video needs at least Widevine L1 DRM & HDCP 1.x

Which means these devices:

- NVIDIA Shield
- Xiaomi Mi Box
- MINIX U9
- WeTek Hub & Play2
- MECOOL M8S Pro L
- Amazon Fire TV's

If you want Chromecasting support you need legit, licensed Android TV devices :

- NVIDIA Shield or
- Xiaomi Mi Box

LibreELEC Kodi Krypton works best with these Dual Boot boxes:

- AMLogic S9xx devices.

And if you want decent WiFi on those AML devices the MINIX U9 with AC MIMO WiFi will be the best followed by the cheaper MECOOL M8S Pro L

You will find this PS Vue help (click) post of interest.
