# lsb_release
OpenELEC (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140210130141-r17688-gf1b02ea

Based on tip of XBMC master (699163e, changelog) and tip of OpenELEC master (f1b02ea, changelog) with the following modifications:
  • Includes newclock3 commits (except for a671235 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 Feb 09 release with fix for timestamp variations. For testing purposes, please add the following config.txt settings as they may help avoid some cases of video stutter, and popcornmix would like to know if they improve this, and if they cause any other issues:
    Code:
    max_clock_drift=100
    max_clock_drift_rate=100
    avoid_fix_ts=0
    See this discussion for background to first two settings, and this thread for background on the last (avoid_fix_ts).
  2. OpenELEC: ALSA drivers now enabled by default (though ALSA itself is not yet enabled in stock OpenELEC for use by XBMC - it is however enabled in this build)
  3. XBMC: Some subtitle related improvements

Additional Testing Notes:
  1. Testers should try adding the following entry to their advancedsettings.xml:
    Code:
    <advancedsettings>
      <video>
        <defaultplayer>dvdplayer</defaultplayer>
        <defaultdvdplayer>dvdplayer</defaultdvdplayer>
      </video>
    </advancedsettings>
    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:
    Code:
    no_hdmi_resample=1
    hdmi_stream_channels=1
    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.
