I wasn't aware of this being possible in the Mi Box
So, I just did it from Kodi.
This morning my daughter started some YouTube videos and the sound was very glitchy. Restarted the device, then after booting up it didn't respond to the remote. Pulled the power plug and then it worked again. That sort of stuff... If that is the case, I can better just use Windows. People complain about Windows not being stable and you need to restart every so often, but so far this Android box hasn't treated me a lot better.
And actually, that brings me back to why I started this topic
The Mi Box will most likely at some point go to the bedroom to replace the Meegopad Windows client that I have there (that starts buffering a lot in Kodi towards midnight on a regular basis). In the bedroom TV I never use Kodi to play a slide show of pictures, so there this one should be sufficient.
Then I will reinstall my current HTPC (bought it with Windows 7 and haven't done a full refresh ever since), add the HDHomerun Expand and not use the HD Homerun dual tuners and Floppy DTV tuners. In the longer run I can then as well just entirely replace that back end machine. For now it is fine.
And for the front end in the living room, I think I will buy a new light weight Windows device. And that is where I'm still in doubt. I like to watch Formula 1 for example and with that and another Dutch show I recently noticed lines on the screen. Like there is no clear picture, but the picture itself is made up of a lot of horizontal lines. I saw that in both Kodi and in TV Mosaic and it occurs mostly with speedy stuff on the screen. So, like a Formula 1 match or a ticker in the bottom of the screen.
And on the current HTPC every once in a while when I play a recorded show it slightly stutters every 10 seconds or so. Let's see what happens if I have a dedicated Windows client. Then I can start investigating CPUs and configurations again
Some core ix machine seems way too heavy.
