Getting started with the Raspberry Pi KODI Box

Raspberry Pi KODI box is a wonderful piece of technology. It is so small that it can easily hide behind TV, yet so powerful that you can stream all the media without any problems. Our Raspberry Pi KODI Boxes come installed with LibreElec software which is fully customized and ready to be used out of the box. This unit is plug n play.

Here is a guide to getting started with this box.

Connect your box to the TV with the HDMI cable. Connect the provided mini Keyboard Remote to the box with the USB Dongle (provided inside the batter compartment of this keyboard). Provide the power to this box with the provided power cable. There is NO On/Off switch, this unit will power on as soon as you connect it with the power. If everything is done correctly you will see a display on your Screen. After the booting is complete you will see our main setup.
