    Since long time I’m looking for tv box that matches my simple criteria:

    Kodi and Netflix, seems simple but what I need:

    SPDiF out (DD5.1 and DTS) cause my amp doesn’t have HDMI input yet

    Problem is with Netflix which I would like to watch in HD AND 5.1.

    Due to this demand I can barely find a device that run smooth with no problems.

    All android devices are screwed by Netflix or with HD or with 5.1 sound.

    What I know Netflix HD and 5.1 sound is available on Windows 10 marketplace app.

    So here is my question:

    Is it working through SPDiF on Minix NGC-1? (specs seems fine, in theory there should be no problems but I’d like to be sure before I buy it).

    I know that is overkill for my demands but cannot find any other solutions.

    Second question is it working smoothly on Kodi while watching 1080p mkv’s from local network with 24p (23.976 fps)? And if yes, does it auto change refresh rate on movie start like on android devices?

    I’m coming from minix neo X8-H and I barely survived stuttering for such long time in the past.

    I don’t want to feel it anymore…
