after I was able to sacrifice some time again, here’s a short one
Report on the current status …
My project: “Mediacenter with SmartHome solutions”
After I failed with the Android 9 version, I continued to use the version 7.1.2 / 5.04.2017 / Kernel 4.4.103 as the basis.
The last state after many tests:
HW-> RockPi 4B V1.3 -> 4GB
-> Remote control: i7 - Rii mini
!! important: a real back button / right mouse button is
Essential for Android and Kodi at the same time
to be able to !!
-> Keyboard: LogiLink ID 0104
there is almost everything
-> Router 1 Fritz Box 7362 SL
-> SAT IP Server Xoro 8100
-> USB hard drive 3.0 - 3TB -> to FritzBox USB
-> Satellite dish with Quadro LNB
-> Schneider IP Gateway for KNX
OS-> Android 7.1.2
Kodi -> 18.3 - Leia
- The current version runs without crashes
! Since the store unfortunately only a limited selection of addons / APKs for Android is available, I have the most
Tools found and found on “APK Pure”.
Since neither Android alone Kodi accomplish all tasks
can, I used the two system together.
And after the integration of the Android apps under Kodi, the
Users now do everything under KODI.
The Android interface is only used to start.
In order to get an operable interface, you really need “Super Favorites” under KODI
do not link possible from Android to Kodi.
The task :
!! Everything has to be Legal, not Dubious Provider !!!
If possible, everything under a user interface …
Everything has to be done with a remote + 1 keyboard + 1 mouse
(I tested 11 remote controls, 3 of which could be the requirements)
SmartTV + Touch functions together
1 system for everything …
- GERMAN live TV via Internet
- GERMAN live TV via SAT
- Music over the Internet
- Music via Local Network
- Video over local network
- IP CAM monitoring - at least 4 cameras
- Integrate the professional KNX system for
House control (Hager, Siemens, Merten, Schneider)
- Internet surfing via keyboard and mouse
- Remote Desktop Integration
- Video over Internet
- Series over Internet
- Mini Office Files Read possibly edit
PDF / DOC etc.
- Integrate free media libraries
- Games if possible
- Connection Sonos Speaker System
- Basic sound via the HIFI system
- Connection FritzSmartHome
The good news … almost everything is up and running
In some areas, there is still a lot of fine work too
do … the infinite story …
I’m interested in anyone else’s liking
