Pick the Right Kodi Box (UPDATED FEB 2015)
(2015-02-21, 00:42)nickr Wrote: Why obsess about finding an android box to do those things when chromebox will do it now for the price you seek. Why the obsession about android media boxes at all? I know about the netflix/amazon addons. But is there any other reason?
I agree with this statement and that of Poofy's. Too many compromises with the all in one Android attempted solution - they are at best a hobby box and not worthy of a main lounge / home theatre Kodi solution using a remote control from an armchair.

The RPi 2 really has set a new benchmark for a cheap pure Kodi box solution if you don't need HD Audio. Buy a kit with a quality power supply and bury it behind the TV or in a cabinet. It is the Kodi device to get if your cannot get a Chromebox in your part of the world. Cheap to upgrade to the next version too once you have the Kit with all the parts.

Get the Chromebox or one of its derivatives for HD Audio and the superior - affordable Kodi experience.
Supplement both with a Amazon Fire TV stick or Chromecast for paid streaming services if you have a Dumb TV.

Job done Smile
