lovving OSMC. Tried OpenElec, LibreElec, Raspbian, Xbian.
OSMC is slick , I prefer its interface over the others, and the deal breaker for me is the ability to tweak the system using linux based OS
I have installed all these OSs and then just added (if not integrated into the OS) Kodi and just one add on: Simple IPTV client. Then I jet the machine settle down and monitor average load and temp across the systems as configured. I took several measurements over 2 hours. No other nodes on the LAN, incoming WAN traffic blocked via seperate firewall box, other than one incoming multicast live TV stream
LibreElec average load was 25% and 54.2C temp
OSMC average load was a whopping 8% and 45.4C
I note that LibreElec “just enough for kodi” but whats going on here. OSMC is beating it to a pulp. And for a “more fuller system” , why isnt everyone running OSMC
Well done team
