For this you need a pleasant and effective way to know in advance what's on TV, at what time and on which channel.

Raspberry Pi 4 Benchmarked with 32-bit and 64-bit Debian OS

We already wrote that 64-bit Arm (Aarch64) boosted performance by 15 to 30% against 32-bit Arm (Aarch32) several years ago, but Matteo Croce decided to try it out himself on Raspberry Pi 4 board first running benchmarks on Raspbian 32-bit before switching to a lightweight version of Debian compiled as aarch64.
