      hardware for streaming Sky Go

      Been thinking about something like this https://www.gearbest.com/mini-pc/pp_...NAZr0xNtwgy.Rw to stream Sky GO and wondered if anyone else has experience with similar hardware and live sports streaming?. Currently use a decent spec desktop and the playback is pretty much as flawless as it could be, but need something smaller to do the same job.

      Re: hardware for streaming Sky Go

      I run the Sky Go PC version on my Linx 1010b on W10 without problems. It a fairly low spec machine but runs very well.
      Found it to be poor on the Microsoft Surface Pro, stutters a lot. A high spec machine.

      It is hit and miss. Not sure if that dual hdmi output might cause problems though as output on Sky Q and many other streaming apps/programs is restricted/blocked on second/multi ports.
