Kodi is an implementation of fedora to make it a media center right? so i should need some kind of computer to connect it to the tv and then i can use it remotely connecting to kodi? is that what you are recommending?

You could buy a miniature PC for your TV, like a cheap stick PC that you connect over HDMI. You can operate it with a cheap Bluetooth keyboard/mouse combo.

Once you have a PC for your TV, you can do just about anything., You can connect to your GNOME session over VNC pretty easily from Windows or any operating system with a VNC client. You’ll find free VNC clients for every operating system with a little research. Maybe you’d want to install Fedora on your new stick PC?

Note that this doesn’t currently work with Wayland, but from the GNOME login screen you can click the gear icon and select GNOME on X to make it work.
