Is the Wetek play 2 recommended ?

  • Hi, I'm using LibreElec a lot on my 10 years old Asrock iON 330 but it died so I need a cheap replacement

    There is a used Wetek play 2 that I want to buy

    I like that because I want something that boots straight to Kodi without Android

    It must be able to play H264/h265 on 1080p streamed over SMB

    Start booting right away when powered

    Run the latest 18.x kodi with the nextpvr or hdhomerun add on

    And plugin an USB IR receiver for a Logitech Harmony

    So.. would this box make me happy ?
