a RasPi 4 with 4GB RAM should be plenty for kodi once it can use all of the processing...and for quite a long time with this kind of setup, if you're disinclined to use a "smart tv" like me.Thanks for the info.
That may not be useful for me in my setup.
I use a Hi Media A5 Andriod Box which runs Kodi (need to double check which version its 18.*)
Media is stored on a HTPC(silverstone LC20M) with about 8TB's of storage space I use to do playback from this box, but now all playback is done from the Hi Media box.
There is no need to free up resources on the Android box as that is all it does is playback media does nothing else plus it has 8 cores itself.
The HTPC is a full blown PC that really just serves the data at the moment.
my 1080 plasma is going strong and will for quite some time yet...so an HTPC with optimised downloads and streaming make it a perfect match.
@rgnldo I'm going to dig in and learn what I need to so I can use this. Obrigado.
hopefully nobody DMs me for a tutorial, because it will likely take quite a while for the various pennies to drop for me.
