Hi all, i am new to the forum and i would ask and seek for some advice
I am about to buy a Minix U9 for about $107 on 11.11 using a coupon. I know it is a S912 and i am aware of its GPU driver limitations, it is just that i am looking to play DD+ audio on streaming services to my DD-only soundbar.
I know LE with Kodi can transcode DD+ to DD. However, has anyone tried to transcode audio using streaming services ?
I also have two Mi Box and a M8S Pro plus, one of the 6 month old Mi Box has already video problems and the M8S Is on a working but faulty branch, i get a complete freeze like once a day.
I am looking for a more reliable hardware. I know the Nvidia Shield is at the top, however it is pricey and it doesnt offer Youtube HDR, as it lacks VP9 Profile 2 decoding.
The second best choice would be the Minix U9, however, why isnt it much mentioned here? I think thats the best S912 device, althought pricey. I would be happy to pay its price if i can get a working device for at least 2/3 years. Is this expectation realistic?
Anyone has tried Youtube HDR on LE for the Minix U9 or any other S912 device?
