I’m eager to know what would be the best replacement for my current Pi. I’m not particulary “set” on yet another Pi model, maybe there are other options (Vero?) that would be great.
I’m using my Pi mostly for streaming the TV series and movies my brother hosts on his NAS.
I also have homevideo’s on my SSD and I share some media folders on my PC I can select to play on my TV that way using Kodi.
Besides that I use it for watching YouTube.
My wife has some of her favorite music in a folder on the SSD she plays sometimes and that’s about it.
I bought it in 2018, and I think it’s quite dated now, if I use:
> cat /proc/cpuinfo
model name : ARMv7 Processor rev 4 (v7l) Hardware : BCM2835 Model : Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Rev 1.2
We don’t care that much about ‘high tech quality’ so we don’t have a 4k television yet. And I’m looking to keep it around the same budget a Raspberry Pi would be if possible.
What alternatives would you recommend that keeps me
- Use YouTube
- Watch media from someones NAS server
- Stream media from my PC shared folders
- Play MP3 files
All from the comfort of your own TV.
