    So... I've done a lot of reading and researching and according to the specs the 905x chipset should be able to handle 4K HDR as well as the 912...

    Can anyone confirm that?


    When the 905x is an option I could go for the Minix U1 (with Gigabit Ethernet).

    Alternative for me would be the Minix U9-H which is superior to the U1 on the Android platform. Many users have succeeded in a dual boot with Libreelec on that particular device. However it is more expensive than the U1.

    Witch of the two would be the best for pure Kodi use?


    Oh, and the Minix A2 airmouse/keyboard is usable with Libreelec as well, correct?


    With kind regards,

    So.... When I take a look here (kodi forum), it says under "Q. I basically want a HD Audio capable (inc. Atmos & DTS:X) 4K HDR10 Kodi media player that just works with minimal hassles ?" that "AMLogic S905X, S905D and S912 devices running DIY LibreELEC Kodi Krypton" are recommended.

    Special mention for S912 devices like the MINIX U9-H because it also has Gigabit LAN... (good for 4K streaming).


    On the forum there are plenty of users running an S912 device with Libreelec, so, why shouldn’t I? :-/


    (Kind of) new question arises though:

    The MINIX U9-H must be a good box (also gets nice reviews).

    Are there other options like the X92, X96 Pro or the Beelink G1 Ultimate?



    Hello everyone!


    I am looking for a device to run Libreelec on, in either a dedicated mode or through dual boot, and it would need to play 4K flawlessly, pass-through any 5.1 surround stream to my receiver and have a 1000 Mb/s (GigE) Ethernet connection.


    I have been browsing through this forum and other forums as well (like the Kodi forum) and I have been checking out loads of reviews from various Kodi boxes but I am a bit lost at this point.


    I know that everybody is pretty happy with / excited about the ODROID C2 setups but isn’t this particular system getting a bit outdated?
    I think someone mentioned a new Kodi version coming up in near future that is in need of faster hardware than the 905* CPU?
    I would like to buy a device which I will be able to enjoy for a couple of years... ?(


    And while the ODROID itself is not all that expensive, adding a case, power adapter, 8Gb EMMC drive, Bluetooth module and a good air mouse will raise the price round about 100 euro’s.
    For less than that I could get a random brand 4K Kodi Android box from China with the 912 CPU, like for example the pretty popular 92X, which has good reviews and benchmarking by the way. These boxes include 2 or 3 Gb of RAM, 16 or 32 Gb of storage and a remote control.


    So, the big question is: should I go for a ODROID C2 setup and is it future proof or should I go for a 912 box, and if so, which ones do you prefer / think are the best ones for a dual boot Libreelec setup:?:


    I would like to thank you all in advance for your thoughts on the matter!
