So I have decided to get away from the Raspberry pi3+ because of more 4k content, and it not supporting it. I have decided to either build a HTPC or find whatever the most powerful development board is that can support Libreelec in 4k.
All Videos (home videos of the kids obviously) would be streamed directly from my server in my office, and NOT streaming from the internet via hulu, Netflix etc... The way my home is setup, central server and Kodi running on a PI3+ board on each tv.
The HTPC would be Libreelec and KODI installed ONLY...dedicated device (much like raspberry). I am guessing a GPU would not work, because I could not install drivers like in Windows if it is a dedicated device. As I would like it to boot directly into Kodi. I had thought about using a AMD 2200g cpu with intergrated gpu...but I heard Libreelec does not play well with AMD, am I wrong? Looking at 1151 chipset intel boards, on mini itx and not finding much that will support [email protected] and HDR.
I could be wrong about some of the software stuff, I am not a IT guy by any means..... Good at building systems, not a programing them.
Any suggestions on a development board that is plenty powerful and slightly future proof, would be greatly appreciated. OR if you have ideas on HTPC PC build, would be greatly appreciated also. Once again looking for 10bit HDR and something I could build that would boot directly into Kodi, without having to install windows etc... would like to try to keep it on a M-ITX board or smaller and under or around $400.
don't get me wrong, I love my Raspberry pi's....but with more and more 4k content, it just does not have enough power.
