    Hi all,

    I'm taking delivery of my first 4K TV this week (Hisense H65M7000).

    I've seen Kodi is capable of streaming 4K content. My question is which hardware should I use to stream it?

    I own a steam link so could stream Kodi content from my desktop. Not sure if it would be 4K/HDR though?
    I also own a raspberry pi 3 so could install Kodi on there.
    I'm open to buying an android box but there are so many and I'm not sure which are 4K/HDR capable. The Nvidia shield looks good, but it's expensive.

    Any thoughts/experience with this?

    Thanks in advance.

    What about the Amazon Fire TV 4k box? I have one running Kodi and it's great. I don't stream 4k mind you, but I'#d assume it is more than capable given that it what it was designed for.

    Hey, thanks for your reply. I didn't even know there was a 4K Amazon box! It's a good suggestion.

    I think I'm going to stump up the cash for the Nvidea TV box. I use pi for running emulators, and my steam box for streaming from my PC. If I get the Nvidea TV then it will do both those things plus Kodi at 4K and android games, apps, etc. It will be easier to have everything in one place and save changing HDMI port selections all the time.
