One thing to keep in mind is micro SD cards perform wildly different based on the model. I thing the SanDisk Extreme Pro is around the top (via several test sites) at roughly 170/90 MBs. Still around half the speed of eMMC storage. I'm using the SanDisk in my N2 with CoreELEC and it's very snappy - such as indexing media.

Regarding installing apps I Google the app with ODROID. This way you can typically see if it's supported and if there is anything you need to keep in mind. I did see they got it (Ubiquiti Unifi) running on the XU4 a while back... not sure about other devices.

I agree they are "fun" little devices. Just something satisfying about performing x tasks at such a simplistic level. Kind of like the right tool for the job... nothing more or less.

I've had no luck getting unifi to run on the XU4. I always have issues with mongo not installing. The last info I found had custom files that I would have to put the device too instead of grabbing them from the net. Need to figure out how to do that. Haven't had tons of time to spend on it.

I heard you got it up and running. Great. I might be digging (more so) into 4k media if I upgrade my projector. Trying to play 4k local media via WiFi (I have lousy WiFi) is too much for my Fire TV 4K (in the office) so I'm considering getting a C4... or perhaps another N2.

I ended up ripping the rest of my music CDs via Kodi as I didn't find a FLAC app I wanted to use and for casual listening the N2 serves them via Plex Media Server just fine.

The N2 does great with 4k, been really happy with it. Our seems like for coreelec the C4 is plenty. I believe one advantage I read about the N2 over the c4 is that it can software decode 1080p if need be because of the CPU horsepower. I believe situation only arises with the Netflix add-on for Kodi.

Cleaning up my office closet I ran across two remotes that have never been used. They work perfectly with Kodi, CoreELEC, LibreELEC and so forth. I just got them (back in the day) for the IR sensor. Anyway if anyone would like one (for free!) just let me know. Pay whatever the postage is and it's yours. Sorry, no batteries or sensor.

I'm interested. I have the same remote (Ortek VRC1100) but it's wore out. I tried to buy a replacement but nobody has them anymore.

PM me your address and I'll see what USPS says the shipping is and let you know.

One remote gone... one left. I guess shipping to the 48-states is $8 Priority 2-Day Mail (cheapest online via USPS).
