If you have an old PC that bites the dust, the configuration can be used, by converting it to a smart TV Yes, you can do it – virtually transform your old PC into Android TV thanks to modified open-source software It is also convenient for monitors connected to a PC running on Intel or AMD processors, which essentially covers the whole spectrum of possibilities.
The software is called Android TV x86 and it is your best bet for a pleasant multimedia experience with the apps, games or other entertaining content directly on your PC connected to the big screen The software is developed by XDA Senior Member [AmznUser444 Dev], and to start, the application works on Android 9 Pie
The minimum requirements for the software to work are quite low, so you shouldn't have any problem getting it to work on modern PCs Even old PCs will do the cut as it only requires one processor 2 GHz dual-core 64 bits with 64 MB of video memory from an Intel GPU / NVIDIA / AMD You should have no problem establishing the LAN connection, Wi-Fi ou Bluetooth – since the ROM has the roots of the Android-x86 project and the Google apps are pre-included
That said, there are some things to take into account before installation, because the software is quite recent and has known bugs First of all, HD Netflix content / Amazon Prime Videos will now work, because the Widevine L1 certification is still missing
Secondly, Chromecast also does not work without DRM support at the moment, even if it is integrated into the application It should also be taken into account that Netflix only works in mobile version, so if you watch a lot of content from the service, this workaround will not benefit you as much.
