START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated January 2020)
Hi guys,

new member here but I have been using Kodi for many years now (at first on RPi2 and now on RPi3) to stream movies/tv shows from my Synology NAS via ethernet. I intend to buy a new 4K HDR TV and I think it's time to upgrade my Kodi device as well, as it is not capable of playing back 10bit HEVC files.

I am looking for something that is able to play back 4K HDR10/10bit HEVC files, preferably on LibreELEC, with gigabit ethernet and CEC, which is really important to me, because I'd like to keep it simple with only one remote. I'd rather go for an ODroid-C2 than having a device without CEC.  Big Grin

Any specific device that you can recommend? 

Bonus question: are there any devices that support bluetooth aptx and headset controls? For instance, I was able to pause the videos on my RPi with my B&O H7 but had to change to a external bluetooth transmitter because of connectivity issues.

Thanks Smile
