- Hive mind a MINI PC for TV
I want a little box I can install Linux on to run media from my NAS and the internet iplayer, yootoob etc.Posted 1 year ago
In another room I already have a ZOTAC Nano, but its about 5 years old, works fine. I would buy another but they don’t seem so prevalent these days.
I could ask on an AV forum but we all know that STWers are smarter than the average bear. Hence what have you mtb/gravel/roadie/bmx/velodromers got or recommend?H1ghland3rMember
Not really a mini PC but if it’s for streaming stuff to a TV then it’s plug and play, supports every format known to man, is tiny and uses next to no power.
It’s the recommended plug and play box over at the Kodi forums for folks that just want to plug something in and have it work and it runs OSMC.Posted 1 year agomattyfezMember
You can ‘hack’ an amazon firestick fairy easily following an online guide, then install kodi or whatever onto it. Then kodi is just listed as an extra app on the firestick, so if you have amazon prime that might be a good option.
One annoyance with kodi is if you want to watch pirate stuff, like new movies etc, it’s a bit of a faf as you keep having to update it and mess around as streams stop working.
It’s fine for legit stuff though, loads of documentary channels, Ted talks and all that sort of thing.Posted 1 year ago
