Watching tv last night, I wasn’t able to change the picture size from 4:3 to 16:9 full screen on the official plex app. Tried using my Xbox one, and that had the same problem with screen size.

I was left only with one option, to install kodi from the tv’s App Store, then I was able to load the official plex app for kodi :) now I am able to watch my media in full screen:D

Started watching a file with Dolby Digital, the tv wasn’t passing the signal to my av amp.

So I tried a raspberry pi running osmc:) it’s working great, full screen and with Dolby Digital.

So I went to the official website for osmc looking for an update as the card I have flashed is and old version, and found the Vero 4K box, £119 in shipping.

It’s been running for a couple of days now, I had one teething issue, that was my fault I had set the 4K output to 25 when it should have been 60 :-doh

Once I sorted that out it’s been great :D using the osmc, Plex plugin to view my recordings on my nas, via hdhomerun and Plex DVR.

Only I can’t use the watch live tv option, I have to use the Plex app on a compatible device (Xbox one/360 roku, amazon tv stick etc)

Via the osmc plugin I lose the watch later function from the bbc Iplayer again you need the app for that.

All I need to make this a complete solution is sat-ip.

The Vero 4K is running osmc Download - OSMC

Runs on all raspberry pi models, Vero 4K and Apple TV gen 1.

They also have a load of pre compiled img’s.

I believe it to be a debian based.

Once you’re up and running with an img head to my osmc, and install the samba server and any updates.

Than I added the official plex addon along with the hdhomerun add on, they are part of the official osmc addons included in the addon’s repository.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.
