I know Raspberry Pi has a huge community (that is a huge benefit). My last 2 Kodi install have have been with R-Pi 2 (retropi) & 3 (libreelec) respectively. I found both to be kind of clunky and on-going buffering issues (my internet connection isn’t all that great).
While looking to do a new build I started researching alternative Single Board Computer (SBC) options. There seems to be many with a significant amount of additional options and computing power.
Does anyone have any experience with alternatives to the PI hardware?
None of which will help if the cause of buffering is your internet connection.
What exactly ‘clunky’ means to you is not explained
According to forum posts i have read 905D seems to be the preferred AMLogic chip.
Of course there are lots of others also, and a huge price range, from about 40 to hundreds £/$/€
You are aware this forum is Amlogic centric so you won;t find much not related to those CPUs.
