OpenELEC (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140213002229-r17700-g56e8f72

Based on tip of XBMC master (a74973f, changelog) and tip of OpenELEC master (1510929, changelog) with the following modifications:
  • Includes newclock3 commits (except for ddcc72e 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 12 Feb release:
    • Fix crash that could occur when passthrough dts packet is short
    • Set validity bit for audio passthrough formats to avoid noise when unsupported by tv/receiver
    • Increase allowed clock drift from 50ms to 100ms to avoid video stutters
    This should make max_clock_drift_rate unnecessary. max_clock_drift has been increased to 100ms in firmware, so both these two options can now be removed from config.txt.
  2. OpenELEC: Now has support for I2S ALSA cards like HifiBerry

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.
