Getting into Kodi

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.
