Hello LE users and developers,
I wanted to get some opinions on user experience and realistic usage limits on running LibreELEC on a S905 vs S905x. I understand you can't run 4k @ 60fps, but I will never use up the space to save/play something that large. I think the S905x is a little slower, but with them mainly using hardware decoding is this a problem or will it be one in the future?
How do you predict the community development on the S905 vs the S905x? I think currently there is more development on the S905, but I think the S905x is catching up quickly. I dont see much going on the the S912.
Also is there any real benefit on getting a 2G/16G. I think LE uses less than 200mb leaving over 800mb for buffering and add-ons. Personally I play 90% of my content from my wired LAN library, but I don’t want to cut my-self short for odd-on streaming. I would think that 800mb is enough for buffering (if LE using that much). Just like most users, I don’t plan on putting any content on the device, just LE OS, thumbs, DB, add-ons. You can currently get a 1G version for under $30, where a 2G is almost 2x that
Are there any features that you see must see on the next device that you will purchase?
I’ll add a poll, but I’ll make it for, what will your NEXT device will be. I assume if I do it for current devices, I’ll probably see a lot of 1G/8G S905’s.
