Discussion on: I just got a Raspberry Pi 3. What can I do with it?

Considering the amount of electricity it used, it was perfect for running Kodi (media centre), and we also had it connected to a VPN to download, well, things... The only reason I upgraded to a proper NUC in the end was because the Pi doesn't support decoding x265 HEVC footage in real time, which was a major set back for me personally.

Hello there! I was thinking of setting up Kodi on a pi instead of buying a new smart-TV. Which raspberry would you recommend?

Is the B+ too much? Can a pi zero handle the task?

The pi Zero definitely cannot handle full HD video download and stream and any decent quality, better to go with the model 3
