All i really need is it to handle running a DLNA server for my smart TV, download videos onto it via torrent, and play them back by networking it through the DLNA protocol.

Going to use a KVM software to network my computers keyboard and mouse, then simply plug the stick into a spare hdmi port on my pc's monitor so it can just run downloads and server in the background.

 

I don't want my PC running all the time so that's the idea of the android stick.

 

 

 

Wondering if anyone here has done anything similar to this?

 

Or does anyone recommend any particular model of an Android Minipc stick?

Cant recommend an "Android Stick", however, have you considered a Raspberry Pi running something like XBMC or RasPlex?

Edit: Just realised you want a DLNA server, rather than client.  I'd be surprised if a Pi could serve the data fast enough TBH, but its worth a shot.  Expect you'd get the same problem with an Android stick.
