Has anyone tried running Pi Hole alongside Kodi? It's meant to be compatible.


I have OpenElec, a Kodi distribution, running on a R.Pi2. It's currently only coming on with the TV, but it's on Ethernet, has a good quality power supply, is mounted well, and has good cooling. It would be more efficient to put Pi Hole on that than to run a second Pi.


Are there any downsides? There might be an occasional restart of the Pi2 if Kodi locks up. I guess there could be a software conflict.


I can use Win32DiskImager to backup Kodi and try this.



Unless its an official plugin for OE I wouldn't rate your chances. Would also recommend considering LibreELEC over OE.

Turns out OpenElec has a very cut down OS just for Kodi, and Pi Hole won't install. Oh well.
