OpenELEC (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140204085709-r17625-g6396b1d

Based on tip of XBMC master (65ad3ae, changelog) and tip of OpenELEC master (6396b1d, changelog) with the following modifications:
  • Includes newclock3 commits (except for 7f0a8b9 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. Lots of dvdplayer+omxcodec fixes have been pushed to newclock3.
    • Aspect ratio for non-square pixel videos should be fixed
    • Reduced GPU memory usage by 20M
    • Fixed issue with green flashes when playing software codec (e.g. divx3) after hardware codec
    • Fixed some crashes with ff/rew and when stopping/restarting
    • Fixed some omx_err situations
  2. OpenELEC: Updated wlan firmware

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).


i also tried this release, but my problem with this release persists as with the other MilhouseVH OpenELEC-master based releases.
Whenever i try one of your builds, my USB-DVB-C Stick produces tons of Continuity Errors when running tvheadend service.
I dont see these errors with my OpenELEC-3.2-based builds.
I also have tried to build OpenELEC-master against kernel-3.10,
but this build hangs after successful booting the kernel at "Starting Show version".

Does anybody know if there are changes between the used kernels?
Or are there any knobs within the newest release which i am not aware of?

Best Regards,
