I had really hoped that LibreElec would be a viable solution for me . UNfortunately I have enconuntered quirqs in IPTV Simple client, Playlist Loader addon will not work at all due to lack of Python and/or Python-requests , it seems there is no way to configure the same remote map that I have used on XBian, Ubunbtu, OSMC. It seems the Wiki abou remotes is intended to confuse not clarify. The wireless suport seems very unreliable with 2 different USB WiFI adapters, both work fine with Kodi/Ubuntu
It is too bad as the world needs a Good Kidi/Linux distro for x86 , this just is not it, at least yet.
