How does this compare to other options? Based on specs, it will perform at least as well as an Amazon Fire Stick 4K and likely a bit better due to 25% more RAM and a (very) slightly faster CPU. GPU performance is nearly identical. Other than that, advantages over other similarly priced devices are Chromecast Ultra 4K capability and searching across apps (haven't personally tried this). Spec comparison below.
TiVo Stream 4K (this device)
Amlogic S905Y2 SoC (12nm)
- CPU: 4x ARM Cortex-A53@1.8GHz
- GPU: Mali-G31@650MHz
- onboard storage: 8GB
- memory: 2GB DDR4
- big bonus, IMO: USB-C port for use with Ethernet adapter and expandable storage options (I wouldn't be surprised if you could power it through the type-C port as well, but that's not official)
