don't android boxes have buckets of tracking

apps might not the box itself, it;s just like a phone

i am trying to get rid of as many ways for big tech companies to track me.

and i am trying to find an alternative to a fire TV stick or chrome cast.

 

i though what about running steam OS (all other controller style OS in have seen are a bit pants looking)

and what better of a tinny PC to run it on then a raspberry PI

 

has anyone ever tried running steam os on a raspberry PI

or have any ideas for a different home theater OS

Android boxes work pretty well tbh. Pi's are also in shortage right now and there are an abundance of android boxes

Please tag me @RTX 3090 so I can see your reply

Just run Linux on Raspberry Pi if you want to avoid tracking (steam os will track you too )

yes but this is for a home theater type thing and if i wanted to use normal desktop Linux i would just run a cable from my PC. but yes i didn't think about steam tracking me.

if my assumption that you will run Emby for content consumption is correct then running Linux with emby on top of it should be easy to do and media experience should be quite good. You could also use some custom android ROM without google services

does steamOS have a build for the Pi? making linux run on the pi is one thing, making it run well is a whole another game...
