    Canada going after android boxes?

    Unless you're into gaming the shield is overkill to just use kodi. The kiii is an excellent box and you can find them on Amazon and elsewhere. I'm in Canada and grabbed one for $119 Canadian with delivery. Not sure what they run in the US. Uninstall the kodi version that comes with it and...

Plug that into the chrome box and use the file manager to transfer the file to the update folder under...

    New to RPI 2 and have a few questions !!

    In system settings there is a video calibration option that you can use to adjust kodi to your screen. I don't remember exactly where. It's in the same option list as the screen resolution.

    Best Kodi Hardware

    Openelec is a standalone OS completely dedicated to kodi. You can't add apps like android. The I5 is overkill for openelec. I have the nuc dn2820 and it runs everything without an issue.

A box running just openelec kodi I found to be a lot less headaches. A cheap NUC or brix will cost you a slight bit more if not the same as...
