Did I make a mistake in purchasing this with the intention of using it with Kodi?
I’d really like to stick with CoreElec. I’m familiar with the hardware list, but it’s simply a list of processors, not necessarily something I can find on Amazon. Ideas for a chipset/hardware combination that’s equivalent to the Z9X that provides 4K?
CoreELEC will never be compatible with Zidoo devices, they use a chipset not supported by CoreELEC, so if you want to stick with CoreELEC you need a different device. I used to use a Zidoo Z9S but am now using an Odroid N2+ running CoreELEC and find it works very well playing all my locally stored music and video files up to and including 4K with ATMOS or DTS-X reliably.
