Hey guys
As per title I have an old laptop that's screen is broken. I want to use it as a media player using the HDMI port. Is there any media centre apps? I know nothing about this sorta thing but the laptop can be formattedb or whatever, I also have an IPTV sub which is like to incorporate somehow? Alos I'd like if possible to be able to set a torrent to download using my phone, like the phone sends the link to the laptop so it's downloaded when I return.

All ideas welcome and thanks in advance

I've used both Kodi and Plex to stream from my media server, and although Plex does have its advantages, I've settled on Kodi.

I just find it easier to use.
