Kodi on Pi using OSMC with headless access

Full headless set up should be possible, but I chose to connect the Pi to a monitor and mouse for the first boot of the Pi (step 3) so I could see what happens and do the initial set up of Kodi.

Once you’ve completed the set up you will have full headless access to the Pi which means you can leave it plugged into your TV and have both the command line and the Kodi user interface open in a window on your PC.
