Question for a Kobo Aura Edition 2

My wife owns a Kobo Aura edition 2 and ask if it was possible for her to sideload books from the home server wirelessly. I run Kavita as a frontend while i manage the books with Calibre on the backend. Kavita has opds support but even if the Kobo has wifi support i think the only way to get it to connect to the opds is with Koreader.

However i cant find info anywhere if this kobo is support with Koreader and i also dont want to give her something that will be unstable as she is not techy at all.

I was looking at changing the reader for something similar but that had native opds support but im new to the e-ink reader world and find it a bit overwhelming all the choices out there.

Any suggestions on either a change of device (under 200$ if possible) or is KoReader the only real option?

There's this, not exactly what you want to do but close enough, I think:

While I can't speak to other options because I don't use opds myself, I can say that I use KOReader on several different devices and the Aura Edition 2 is the most stable.

A disruption that happens ever so often is having to reinstall KFMon after firmware updates. One particular firmware update (4.34?) rendered KOReader/KFMon/NickelMenu inoperable (I'm not techy enough to know which one), so I had to manually install earlier firmware then disable wifi in Nickel until the problem was fixed.

KOReader has only crashed for me on the KAE2 when opening huge files like archive.org PDFs or massive study Bibles.
