I gotta say, this little computer does quite a good job as a HTPC. I'm using a 4gb Pi 4, with a 32gb Samsung thumb drive, and installed the latest version of LibrElec. For control, I'm using a Logitech universal remote.

I've been testing it for a few days on a 20-inch monitor, and it performs well enough for me to try it on the big 75-inch TV ion the living room. This will be replacing a

I found that installing Kodi on top of Raspbian caused the box to get much warmer than using LibrElec.

BTW, I have the Pi in a Wicked Aluminum billet case from Barch Designs. It's a passive cooling case that completely encloses the Pi. The entire case serves as a heat sink, but I feel like it needs additional cooling because it gets very warm to the touch when running an actual desktop OS.

All in, I've spent about $175 on this little box - a significantly lower amount than I spent on my full-sized HTPC box (hovering right around $750).

BTW, Raspberry just released an 8gb version of the Pi4 for $75 (last Thursday), and I already have one. I bet it's gonna make a decent daily computer for the wife... Smile | :)

I have also applied all of the hardware updates, as well as applied the beta USB boot eeprom.
