Oh, and the comment about having...

My first LCD, Samsung's LN-T4671f, draws 300 watts on the default Dynamic (store sales) setting, and about 150w at my calibrated setting. That's for a 46" set, and for comparison my 65" VT60 draws...

You are in the minority, most folks like W7 better than 8.1, me included. I can't say that you'll like 10 better than 8.1, but I believe it is light years better than 8.1.

Just throw together an old PC and put OpenELEC on it. That will easily and quickly give you Kodi. Just don't expect live TV to be anything near as nice as WMC.
