Since we purchased the remote control, Digi-Key part number RC01-ND, we decided to choose an operating system that will allow us to create a type of media center. After some testing of the various operating systems available, we decided on OpenELEC (Open Embedded Linux Entertainment Center), which utilizes Kodi to turn the CuBox into an entertainment center.

 Click "Install".

 

Click "Yes" to download the operating system to your SD card.

 

 

 

Click "Yes" to restart.

 

The CuBox will restart with the operating system you selected.

 

The first time OpenELEC opens, it will provide three welcome screens that you can click through.

 

If you have questions on setting up the OpenELEC system, go to openelec.tv and click on "Documentation".
