new hobby?

What about making myth playing smoothly HEVEC/VP9 4k at 60p on 20-30$ SoC?

Netbooted OS with zero-touch provisioning(*) to make such appliance we already have(**).
Missing is only HW assisted video decode(***) on non x86.

I’m really enjoying potential competition with LibreELEC :-)

What we can offer (compared to LibreELEC is):
-network boot (so zero install)
-zero touch provisioning (so zero initial config)
-OOB functionality (noting to install): 
   2.TV Recordings
   7.Internet browsing
   8.Phone calls

IMHO such project can make circles around Kodi based things….

what You think?

(*) x86 needs only PXE enablement on BIOS. RPI needs nothing to boot. 
So user pluging Eth, PWR and have working FE.

(**) MiniMyth2 does already x86 Intel/Nvidia/AMD, armv7 (tested on RPI2) and aach64 (working RPI3 & S905; future will be Rockchip and Allwinner)

(***) S905 & Allwinner already have already this (via V4L2 m2m ffmpeg). It is myth who is missing to use this.
