Hi, I’m in the proccess of buying either VIM1 or VIM2.
I want a strictly KODI box, NO Android. with preferable an underlying OS armbian/archlinux etc… So I can use some of the GPIO’s for temp sensor for room & small diy 4$ oled display for Clock etc. Been using raspberry pi with this, but now upgraded to 4K TV.
I want to be able to use it with my Phillips 4K tv 10 bit panel, with HDR+ and HLG, that is the most important.
I dont look netflix, or any other TV, but I use kodi addon YouTube.
I’ve been using it with an old intel board, that only support hdmi 1.4 4k/30hz. and picture quality is not good. very dark. When using the built in media player that comes with the TV, it always makes content even 1080p quality rips look really good.
My question is should I buy VIM2 s912 instead or just settle with VIM1, s905x ?
I dont use wifi, prefer cable.
I settled with Khada board, because of what seems like a huge, great community.
