How good does LibreElec run on the Rock PI 4?

Hi friends how are you all doing?

I have a plan to build a Media Center, so I’m looking for a SBC with support to 4K60fps with also 3.0 usb ports. So I ended up finding the Rock Pi 4. The thing is that I can’t find much information about people using the Kodi/LibreElec system in it. My questions are:

Does LibreElec have any issue due to the Rockchip 3399?
What about the 4K video, does it work with 60fps?

I’m aware that the Raspberry Pi 4 has been just released and it has the same features I’m looking for, however the Rock Pi 4 still has more to offer like the ssd slot and rtc jumper.

Thanks for the attention!

LibreELEC actually is progressing very fast for Rockchip RK3399 devices.
Just 2 days ago there was mainline work done for HDR support with metadata.
So in a few months all will work perfect.

You can follow the Rockchip Rock Pi 4 and mainline threads in the LibreELEC forum
https://forum.libreelec.tv/board/43-rockchip/

RK3399 chipsets supports 10-bit H264 and HDR which the RBP 4 does’t support, 4K@60hz will also perform better on the Rock Pi 4.
Mainline support should be merged soon in the nightly images then things will progress even faster.

Those are great news!
As I want to build a media center I don’t really need more then LibreELEC working. Also I don’t think it’s ok to already buy the RBP 4B already knowing that in the future(not so close I think) they will release the PLUS version.

At this time I am using a RBP 3B+ with Suptronics boards(x820 and x735) it runs perfectly for Full HD movies, however I want to be testing the 4K movies soon.

Thanks for the help and for sharing the links!
