So, I decided it was time to set up an oldish laptop that I had as a video playback solution connected to my TV. I could stream from my gaming PC, but I’m planning on sending that onto a better home (and the laptop, I feel, is more power efficient and takes up much less space).
First plan, install Kodi.
Second plan, consolidate all the drives containing random videos that I want to watch.
Third plan, configure Kodi to play and record TV from an old Freeview TV stick that I have kicking around.
Of the three plans… plan 1 has happened.
Plan 2 is a bit time consuming.
Plan 3… I hit a hurdle. I actually don’t know what I’m doing.
I shall come back to this later, once I figure out what I’m doing.
