I'm a long time Kodi user (currently openelec on an older Acer Revo) looking to build a new small form factor HTPC.
I really like the look of the slim barebone cases from Shuttle but cannot decide between the Haswell based LGA1150 model and the Skylake based LGA1151 model.
Important factors are:
Complete Librelec compatability.
HDMI 1080p @ 60hz, 50hz and smooth 23.976 playback.
HDMI HD audio support with passthrough for Dolby Digital/DTS standard and HD
Not looking to upgrade to 4k anytime soon but a certain amount of future proofing would be good.
All my media is stored on a seperate server so will only need a small SSD for the OS
Will probably start with a mid priced i3 unless it's worth upgrading to an i5 already.
What would be my best option?
Thanks in advance
