    I'm currently running a raspberry pi 3 with librelec but can anyone else suggest a better media centre.

    I need something that runs kodi, and has a few USB ports

    I already have a raspberry pi 3 running kodi, was looking for something more powerful, not weaker. Also fires stick doesn't have any USB, I did state I need these above as I won't have anything to plug my 10tb into

    That would indeed have USB ports and be more powerful than the RPi3 /s

    Then what exactly do you want this to do that needs more power?

    Also, you're confusing the Fire TV with the Fire Stick:
    https://www.amazon.com/Amazon-Fire-...e=UTF8&qid=1501848865&sr=8-1&keywords=fire+tv

    Finally, what file system is the HDD? You need to take this into account for anything you buy as the FTV for example only supports FAT32 without root.

    edit:

    There is the Shield TV, but I don't know about FS support.

    Ahhh apologies, I jumped to stick as I have one or 2 of them lying around atm.

    All my drives run ntfs as some of the files on them are larger than the 4gb limit enforced by fat 32.

    My requirements are something that can run h.265 10bit smoothly, with atleast 3 usb ports. Reliable and has kodi support

    Nice idea, have had a look at them but bit out of my price range, only want to spend £100 maximum.
