    On the original Apple TV I know you can. Not sure on newest ones.
    Just get a fire stick and sideload kodi.

    I have a couple of the old ones running oe, so they are still ok to use, not the best but doable!

    I could do that, nut not really sure if its powerful enough to handle bigger loads on a network? As far as 720-1080 movies etc....?

    Ill check out the pi 2 and see what specs it offers

    The 10/100 ethernet port would be the only reason id shy away from it tbh

    I use a Pi 2, easy to setup and works great hard wired or with a wifi dongle. Bluetooth keyboard/remote works great. Entire setup ~ $70usd from Amazon. The Pi is by far the best option I've used.

    Yes, this works. You need a developer account (free). The instructions linked above are pretty good. Current Kodi version is a "pre-alpha" of Krypton (v17). It is surprisingly stable - been running it for the past couple of weeks with no crashes to speak of.

    You need a Mac and free Xcode software and a free dev account. Real easy to side load kodi on it. Runs good has nightly builds to keep up to date. There is also the mrmc kodi version that you can buy directly on the atv App Store but has no addon support.

    I recommend you browse the atv subforum
