START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)
Great thread and there are a lot of new options out there it appears!  I am looking at replacing a Mac Mini (Late 2009) 2.26GHz Core 2 Duo/8GB RAM/Nvida 9400M graphics running Kodi on top of OS X 10.11.6.  This is a pretty old system, but a full x86 platform.  Would an upgrade to something along the lines of the recommended Vero 4+/ODROID C2/MINIX U9/etc boxes be an "upgrade" with the new tech even though they are not full x86 systems?  My main requirements are that I can connect to a MySQL database and can use a FLIRC for keyboard inputs for a custom remote.  I have an Amazon Fire TV that seems to do very well but ideally would want something I could boot right into Kodi/LibreElec/CoreElec/etc for Kodi-Only usage.  No 4k needed yet, but just want something with some horsepower for future use.  Previously considered a Chromebox or Shield or even up to a Brix/NUC, but if I am reading right, those higher end options are no longer favored.  Appreciate your input!
