If you can afford it the NVIDIA Shield.

If not the MECOOL M8S Pro L.
The Pro L will Not give you Android Kodi refresh rate switching, but dual booting to LibreELEC Kodi enables everything and more you would get with the RPi3 Smile
 Hello,

I'm also interested in a cheap ATV + LibreELEC dual boot setup with S912 SoC. So Mecool M8S Pro L looks good to me.
However it seems that they have several sub-models (LQ, LB, BP, LS, etc) and it's impossible to know which one you'll be getting before you actually get it.

If I need the box to be fully compatible with LibreELEC, including Wi-Fi, BT and hopefully remote (optional), is it safe to get a Mecool Pro L without knowing which sub-model I'll be getting?

My requirements:

1) running ATV, either comes with Android TV OS or has 3rd party ATV rom (preferably Nougat)
2) fully supported by LibreELEC (Wi-Fi, BT) for a dual-boot setup
3) S912 SoC
4) below $70 (love to have a Minix U9 but it's a bit pricy)
5) optional: a popular box, with half-decent community support.

Any thoughts will be much appreciated.
