START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)

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

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.
