OpenELEC (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140201031403-r17572-gf684ba9

Based on tip of XBMC master (a4342cf, changelog) and tip of OpenELEC master (f684ba9, changelog) with the following modifications:
  • Includes newclock3 commits (except for b0241e5 which I've replaced with a static spinner)
  • Excludes the OpenELEC fernetmenta patches (due to conflict with newclock3)
Build Higlights:
  1. "Show RSS news feeds" moved to "Basic" settings level (OpenELEC patch)
  2. "Show RSS news feeds" now disabled by default in my builds going forward - unlikely to be accepted upstream. Remove guisettings.xml for this change to have any effect.
  3. PR4119 included in XBMC master - this disables notifications during initial device scan, eg. CEC adaptor. Most welcome.

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.
