Add a power supply to that and possibly a way of controlling the device like a bluetooth keyboard if your TV doesn't support CEC.
I found the MXQ I posted above performs better with OpenELEC compared to the Pi 2. I think it's because of the NAND storage. Supports CEC. H.265 is supported too.

Matricon G box is supposed to be good £79 from Amazon. Or pick up a cheap mini PC. I run it on a Chromebox and its top class

M8S from ebay uk sellers for around £39 or get the one rev6 suggested if you dont mind waiting a few weeks and are prepared to pay their return costs to china if it goes wrong under warranty

Funny enough it's seems to be working fine now. Think its just to do with the stream.

And in answer to the original question I'd just use a fire stick. Does the job.

Just picked up a MXQ box off there from a good seller, was fully loaded and works like a dream. Happy Days

well worth the money although the remote a pain to use to get setup to the point you can takeover with your mobile

Thats what im running in the kitchen works far better with Openelec.
OP already has an MX box tho so would probably be better off with a Fire TV Box which is silky smooth with Kodi.

​great suggestion that Mxq box looks great value and good spec too

I m running Kodi on an MX3 box-works amazing-quad core, 4K etc
Be sure to buy with 2gb RAM not 1gb, it makes alot of difference to the speed of use/UI
You can pick them up for about £40 on the Bay
