START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)
Quote:@wrxtasy: IMHO the Apple TV 4K is the Apps media player of choice, particularly for users outside the USA that also need 25/50fps auto Frame Rate matching support. It is the go to Netflix media player for smooth 24p Netflix (DolbyVision) video playback with lossy Atmos audio.

There simply is no "one complete box" media player solution if you also want near bug free Kodi with auto refresh/colorspace/resolution switching & copy protected video streaming Apps support.

Currently, gearbest offers a Beelink Gemini N41 6 GB RAM 128 GB SSD including Windows 10 Home for less than 180,00 EUR. I gathered very good experiences with a more costly Intel NUC 5i5RYH plus pulseEight CEC USB-Adapter as an excellent All-in-One Box, for several years.

If I would start again, I would simply buy such a Beelink mini pc, install Windows 10 Pro as a basis and on top Kodi (17.6 or 18). Overall it will be more valuable, flexible and open than an Apple or NVidia Shield TV. That’s my opinion. As a TV server a USB Box (with CI and triple tuner & CAM) could come into consideration, which would be connected directly to the mini pc, or - seperately - an Enigma2 TV Receiver (with openATV). Best regards, Joe
