Because the Vero 4K (and OSMC) are Debian based, you are more likely to be able to set up the device as a hub than you will on the Vero 4K.
The main reason for delays in App Store improvements is because we are waiting on My OSMC 2.0. Once this is done, adding new apps and maintaining them will be much less labour intensive. Then we’ll be able to add a good 100 popular apps or so to the Store; as well as allow other people to submit their own third party applications. Getting this infrastructure developed is important; as it will really allow us to grow the App Store.
The NVIDIA Shield gets a lot of bad reports about problems with refresh rate switching and Live TV playback. if you need Spotify Connect tomorrow, then maybe the Shield is a better option. If you are familiar with OSMC and want the power of Debian, then get the Vero 4K. We will get Spotify up and running (I’ll take a look this evening at the two solutions on the forum and see if there’s something that can be done in the interim and update accordingly). It’s not a matter of if, but a matter of when. By the looks of it, one user’s problem with installing Raspotify was due to the fact that they didn’t add the repository properly.
You can also use Bluetooth audio streaming in the interim
Vero 4K offers binary compatibility for ARMv6l and ARMv7 binaries (i.e. Raspbian), i.e.
sudo curl -L install.domoticz.com | sudo bash.
