    Advise on Sat Box or PC Build

    Hi,
    Need some help on choosing a solution.
    I currently use a dedicated PC Build as my solution.
    An Amd A6 APU 3 TB of storage, it runs mediaportal and shares out all my media on the home network. I'd say its quite power hungry and takes a bit of maintenance to keep working.
    So it's mainly used for Freesat and DVBT channels and does series link recording etc.
    The Pc has dual dvbs2 and dvbt for irish channels.
    The hard drives in the pc are all 3.5" but I dont mind adding them into enclosures to use them on usb may even look at building a simple nas with RasPi 3


    I used a DM800 many many moons ago. So I'm grand using engima2 or linux

    My question is there a box that runs say kodi for all my media and can also share out say a disk on the network, speed wont matter as its only streaming of data around the house over wifi.
    Has Dual DBS2 and can take DVBT as well. If it runs kodi I'd prefer not to have to reboot say like the wetek does.
    Any help would be appreciated guys.
    Ohh my TV is just 1080p no need for a 2k box but would'nt mind as will be upgrading TV in 2-3 years.

    I think its theVU+ box,s that run Kodi, Not sure how it runs.
    I,d suggest you read through the VU+sections and Kodi sections for info.
    Hope it works out for you.

    I wouldn't recommend Kodi on an E2 box. It's just a plug in and doesn't perform well in my experience. Uninstalled it in double quick time from my Solo2 and that's a fast box.

    Yes Kodi is just a plugin... but... that is no reason not to use an E2 box as a media server. This has nothing to do with Kodi.
