OpenELEC (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140205052337-r17644-g5fa7980

Based on tip of XBMC master (1ac9442, changelog) and tip of OpenELEC master (5fa7980, changelog) with the following modifications:
  • Includes newclock3 commits (except for 3f4dddc which I've replaced with a static spinner)
  • Excludes the OpenELEC fernetmenta patches (due to conflict with newclock3)
  • "Show RSS Feed" default setting changed to disabled
Build Higlights:
  1. Firmware: Updated to latest Feb 2 release
  2. XBMC: Several commits from popcornmix/newclock3 have landed upstream (EDL fix, avoid TrueHD, report memory allocation and MPEG/VC1 licence status in xbmc.log)
  3. newclock3: New patch to handle still frames returned from codec

Additional Testing Notes:
  1. Testers should try adding the following entry to their advancedsettings.xml:
    and report if it is better/worse than omxplayer. You can still play files with omxplayer using the context-menu "Play using... OMXPlayer".

  2. The following settings are no longer required in config.txt and should be removed:
    no_resample_audio is now a default, and hdmi_stream_channels is switched based on audio content. For the time being when using passthrough, 2.0 speaker layout should continue to be used (you will still get 5.1 with AC3/DTS).
Texture Cache Maintenance Utility: Preload your texture cache for optimal UI performance. Remotely manage media libraries. Purge unused artwork to free up space. Find missing media. Configurable QA check to highlight metadata issues. Aid in diagnosis of library and cache related problems.
