RPI4 or ASUS Tinker Board?

  • Hello,


    I have to start a several-week inpatient medical rehabilitation treatment shortly. In the rehabilitation centre there are single rooms with DVB-C connections but no TV sets. I have a 24 "monitor and two USB DVB-C dongles that have worked well with the Raspberrry Pi3 and LibreELEC last year.


    This year I want to take either a Raspberry Pi 4 or an ASUS Tinker board. Which of the two devices is supported by LibreELEC (expecially DVB-C) better and less problematic?


    Cheers

  • I think the RPi4. Not because it might be better/faster/cheaper or even because it has a raspberry on it, but because it will be better supported as RPi's are the most used.


    I've tested the RPi4 with tvheadend and a RPi DVB tuner and t works fine - so I don't suspect any issues with DVB/C. If it worked on a previous releases then it's likely to work on a RPi4

  • Rpi works today and has a ton of support, tinker needs more work and I have no time frame for it.


    Btw misread your comment, thought you answered the question your self :P

  • Today I got the news that I still have 16 days left before I have to leave .... enough time to give the Tinker Board a chance, too;)

  • Hello,


    Since I have only DVB-S2 and IPTV myself, I've installed an antenna cable with DVD-C signal from my neighbors to test purposes in my apartment:


    My ASUS Tinker Board with LibreELEC-TinkerBoard.arm-9.1.001-rk3288 and my old Sundtek MediaTV III (DVB-C/T), activated TVHeadend Server and TVHeadend PVR is working fine with DVB-C:thumbup:


    The Raspberry Pi 4 I will take as a desktop PC with Raspbian Buster:

  • ...it works:thumbup:


    But my "old" Raspi 3b+ is running smoother somehow with LibreELEC.


    So I changed the board again8o


    Cheers
