It's still missing a bunch of 4K bug busting and auto bit depth and colourspace switching.
Multichannel LPCM audio is missing as well.

Trying to get my head around this. As I understand it, when watching live TV, since Krypton Kodi has not been able to pass through the original bitstream and instead must convert to multichannel 5.1. Does this mean that, to get 5.1 audio on live TV with the N2 currently, it would require setting audio to 2.0 and re-encoding to Dolby? 

5.1 AAC audio has to be Transcoded into 5.1 Dolby Digital, which is not much of a problem with the N2.

5.1 DD, even for Live TV will be passed thru to the audio receiver when using CoreELEC. It has been modded from standard Kodi to allow that again.

CoreELEC N2 progress is coming along quickly, it's not bad for a fast 1080p Kodi Leia player at the moment. 
Ah, fantastic! Live TV was my only concern - transcoding multichannel AAC/FLAC etc is perfectly fine. I think I can go ahead and order an N2 then Smile

Thanks for the help.
