Any updates on this? I feel like I should just order one and wait for support to come, because when osmc (or even openelec) becomes compatible with the odroid-c2 I don’t think they will be very easy to get our hands on one then.
I understand. It will be a great addition to the osmc hardware family when that day does come. Still on the fence about ordering and waiting for support. Using android in the mean time could be interesting but definitely not as hassle free as osmc!
Thanks Sam! I donated $25, to thank you for your ongoing support for the Raspberry PI and consideration for supporting the Odroid-C2. I have a C2 on order Meanwhile I will continue to enjoy OSMC on my PI 2 Thanks!
Ha you reminded me of my own donation which I planned to do months ago but not sure if I ever did
The Odroid C2 is absolutely interesting. i don’t care about 4K nor 64bit. But the processing power is way more than RPi2, plus the GPU is actually an upgrade, which is not the case with the RPi3. But it has the same price!
The Odroid would allow one to use a low power tiny device to:
work as mediacenter (Kodi)
music streamer (bluetooth, DLNA)
NAS file downloader (Transmission, Flexget)
Sync/backup photos from your mobile device automatically (SyncThing)
Private Cloud (OwnCloud using nginx) with photo gallery, file picker etc.
Especially OwnCloud could be a bit too heavy in combination with running Kodi and downloading stuff. I am not sure if the RPi3 has enough extra power to run Owncloud flawlessly in the background. I am sure the Vero 2 should have sufficient power. But it’s price is also higher. Commercially speaking, supporting the Odroid C2 would not become a priority ever. Unless it becomes a very popular device like the RPi.
I haven’t had a chance to look at mine yet. The 64-bit PC build is indeed my next priority.
Just a heads-up that you should try and source one from your local country if you do decide to buy one. Today I got a letter from FedEx with some rather hefty customs charges, even though the parcel was marked as a commercial sample.
