I hope folks here can help out.
I am a long time user of KDLINKS HD720. 2 things I hate about it and wanted to improve;
1) USB2.0 .... slow load time for my external 2 4TB HDs that I add via USB port. Takes 60 seconds or so to load 2 drives.
2) Movie art got screwed up recently. Every new movie art that I try to add, photo gets squashed and looks bad. Just doesn't work properly and so, no movie art for my movies.
What I like in HD720 is that, I don't just have movies in one folder on the Hard Drive, I have things separated in folders and some back up files there as well. Using the File Explorer KDLinks HD720 nicely shows folders (in thumbnail view) and right under movies that are in that file path. Once I go into the folder, then KDLinks shows files there. So all of these things are appreciated.
Which new version of KDLinks solves my 2 problems listed above?
I purchased KDLINKS HD800. Using File Explorer like HD720 has, there is no way to view files/folder in Thumbnail view and no way to add movie art there. So, I tried using VideoBar app but it's got many issues if your movies are not all in one folder, nicely organized. Otherwise, it doesn't recognize folders and just shows everything (all files) in one view, and lots of times movie art is incorrect, especially for foreign movies which are not written in English text. Unlike KDLINKS HD720, you don't get to pick your own movie art, HD800 is doing it automatically for you and there is no overwrite.
I downloaded KODI, and got more confused.
Any suggestion is appreciated.
