So I've been using a Nexbox A95X with LibreElec for years. I'm a total newbie in the field but even I - guided by on-line instructions, of course - managed to install my LE on a microSD and now have the device able to boot either to Libre (when the card is in - so 99,9% of the time) or to the Android it came with (if it's taken out - which is when I need to use some Android app, usually a VOD service). The installation process was quick and everything works perfect.
So perfect - in fact - that I decided it's high time to buy another box to a second room in my apartment Since I bought the Nexbox almost 3 years ago, I reckon the hardware landscape is probably completely different nowadays but what did not change is my cluelessness about it all. Thus, I'd be very grateful for any tips on what box I should buy in order to ensure such a smooth and noob-friendly installation process and such fluid support of the two boot options as my Nexbox does while allowing for such impeccable playback of each and every format you throw in its direction on a usb stick. I wouldn't want to go beyond $50 but of course the less the better (I remember I bought the Nexbox for under $30 these three years ago and can only speak in superlatives about it to this day).
What would you recommend? Should I go for a specific brand? Model? Architecture? RAM? Thanks so much in advance!
