START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)
Somewhat confused on this topic in terms of what to buy (given that’s the Threads title is).

There is an overwhelming amount of information here and just as I thought I know what I am going to buy I read something else...

I was going to buy the new AFtV box but I believe that doesn’t support 4K from Kodi albeit it does it’s 4K for Amazon and Netflix so time to rethink - correct me if I am wrong.

My movie repository contains just about every standard format in HD but now I’m about to jump into 4K , UHD stuff so need to get this right.

Am I correct in thinking that I should steer clear of an Android build even with the S912 chip ? I’ve seen a few that purport to support 4K so I don’t understand why they wouldn’t be an option...

This kind of thing :

DroidBOX T95Z Plus Android 7.1 Amlogic S912 Octa Core 2GB RAM 16GB ROM Mini Computer Support 4K Resolution 2.4G/5G Dual WIFI 1000M T95Z LAN BT 4.0 [2/16-IR]

So switching to look at the Vero4k+ it’s a bit pricier and runs OSMC which I think is fine but I noticed that on the 4K earlier model it didn’t support DolbyVision ..does the + model now support that?

Also what’s the impact of streaming something in DolbyVision on a 4K if it doesn’t support it ...assume it plays it but does something with the signal to show?

Lots of questions but would appreciate any help here before I buy ...

Thanks in advance...
