That is irrelevant, because that can happen with your solution too

I can't see why it is a problem to mention other features he would get
with another solution.

On an RPi? With hardware support? I don't believe that.
I'm only stating the obvious, that Kodi is absolutely unnecessary to
give the OP what he's asking for. There is no denying this. And, he
can decide if he wants to bother adding Kodi to his setup just to play
mkvs, or if something less extreme makes more sense.
If you let him really decide you shouldn't make solutions bad without
any proof, only
because you don't like them.
I asked you already before to explain what makes OpenELEC more
The only thing that is really obvious that you have no idea what you are
As the founder of yaVDR I have some experiences how complicated a vdr
setup can be.
As a contributor to OpenELEC I know how simple the setup in OE currently is.
