Hey there ... I got my new RockPi4 on friday and it's working quite well with the latest nightly build!
UHD with HDR works GREAT!!!
The GUI (and I am using Aeon Nox Silvo) is really fast and snappy!

I posted some questions about it here: https://forum.libreelec.tv/thread/13642-...post111517
.... more to come

BR,

As you know I am a recent convert to apple tv 4k , however , "her indoors" has now commandeered my box and its on the main lounge tv , so am looking for a box for my room for movies, tv shows and live tv (sport) , currently using a "mecool bb2 pro 3gb ram) , its watchable and it allows me to use kodi ( havent used MrMC on the apple box , I like my own skin ), however I want something that will scroll through icon lists without sticking plus i want live tv channels to load as near as instantly as possible like they do on the apple box, so what would you recommend , maybe openelec ( am not a big  android fan ) and i would like to be able to use the netflix addon in kodi.
I have tried flashing the bb2 with librelec think it is s912 ,just to see what it would run like, but haven't been able to do it , plus am not interested in dual boot.

Flash the latest CoreELEC Leia to a microSDHC card and ask for help over on their forums.

A LOT of TV channel switching and optimisation has gone into it by one of the CE devs @afl1.
It's actually noticeably quicker vs my Apple TV 4K with (MrMC) for TV channel zapping and TV stream startup. Faster vs the RK3399 with LibreELEC as well.

A Wireless remote makes a hell of a difference to scrolling long lists and box responsiveness when using the Kodi user interface on any device.
It's due to the smaller Key repeat time delays built into the such remotes. Hold the down button and scroll fast.

Some like the dirt cheap ABOX bluetooth one when used with a CSR v4.0 BT USB dongle on a RK3399 or ODROID C2 are lightning quick.
I have not added support for that yet into CoreELEC or LibreELEC running on RockChip.

I would start with CoreELEC on your existing hardware and get a wireless remote if you do not already have one.
And you know what I usually recommend - the MINIX A2 lite. Kodi Keyboard shortcuts come in real handy after long term use.



Otherwise yes the RK3399 is one speedy setup as well - when used with a Wireless remote. Wink
TV Deinterlacing is working well for Sports viewing.
The Netflix Kodi Leia Addon when used on the RK3399 can CPU software decode 1080p, the S912 in your BB2 will be limited to 720p max.

I've got a RockPi4 coming from China any week now... For those that are already using one, did you go with the small heatsink or the large one that doubles as a case bottom?

 I'm using the small heatsink and it's OK - but it get's (really) hot ...
I'm searching for a better case; RASPI3 cases would fit, if it wasn't for the height (due to the heatsink) :-(
