    Yeah, I'm hoping to hear from the user community, much like Amazon reviews.

    Personally, I would recommend a Raspberry Pi3 and run LibreELEC on it. Pay the extra $3 and get the MPEG-2 and VC-1 hardware support, too.

    If you just want to use your smartphone or tablet to control it then you can just tape or velcro it completely out of site behind the TV and be done for $39 and the cost of a 1GB microSD card and a 2+ amp cell phone charger. It will outperform those Android boxes by a country mile as well.

    If you want something a little more stylish and or real remote control function, add a FLIRC and a case. The case I have used so far (tried about 4) is actually the metal FLIRC case because it has an internal metal post that contacts the CPU and turns the whole metal case into a heat sink. The FLIRC remote device lets you use any remote control because it is 100% programmable with a PC. With a FLIRC it can be ANY remote control, doesn't even have to be a universal or multifunction. If it has buttons you can program it. I don't even have my FLIRCs in direct line of sight. I still tuck the Pi away, velcroed behind the very top of the tv and the FLIRC is sensitive enough to pick up the signals as it bounces around the room. You can get cheaper IR Receiver/Remote combinations, though. I just like the FLIRC+the older style DirecTV remote control.

    After experimenting with different items for the last couple of years these are the components I have settled on for my RaspPi2 (I haven't upgrade to a RasPi 3, yet, haven't needed to). Many people will already have a microSD card, remote control and phone charger lying around. Just make sure the charger is 2+ amps or you will have problems that will first be revealed by a rainbow colored box in the upper right corner of the screen when you first boot it up.

    It is a $90 project if you go with the "premium" setup here but you can always save a little money with less expensive components or by forgoing the case and/or remote control.

    I also use an Asus Chromebox with a FLIRC and running the same OS. The experience is virtually identical. The only difference is that the Chromebox will pass HD Audio (True-HD or DTS-MA) and the Pi3 won't. You have to downsample or pass through LCPM.

    Hey Paul -

    I've replaced my WD TV Live with NextD (https://www.amazon.com/NextD-TV-Mill...keywords=nextd). I have installed the Mezzmo addon into Kodi, but I am still not able to search (for anything). Any suggestions?

    Hi,
    when browsing the Mezzmo server using the Mezzmo Kodi addon you can right-click on a folder and select Search then you can search the Mezzmo server.

    When you say "right click", I have tried that using the wireless keyboard I purchased (https://www.amazon.com/Rii-i8-Wirele...AWB2J0Z1VPSVG3) but it's no good.

    In the context menu when you right-click on a folder you will see the item 'Search', selecting this will open the keyboard for searching.

    Right-Click is either ineffective or I'm not doing it right -

    However, highlighting the folder, and then typing the letter C does work to bring up the context menu, which then allows me to select the "correct" search option.

    Thanks!
