OpenELEC (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140220223315-r17767-gf3076f0

Based on tip of XBMC master (7d7eb81, changelog) and tip of OpenELEC master (f3076f0, changelog) with the following modifications:
  • Includes newclock3 commits (except for 818a5c4 which I've replaced with a static spinner)
  • Excludes the OpenELEC fernetmenta patches (due to conflict with newclock3)
  • Default setting for "Show RSS Feed" changed to disabled
  • ALSA is enabled and any suitable hardware should be available in XBMC
Build Highlights:
  1. OpenELEC: New kernel v3.13.4
  2. OpenELEC: Several bavison/newclock3 patches accepted:
    • PR4234: Improved file buffering in CArchive
    • PR3760: Faster floating point rounding
    • PR4143: Cache font vertices, GPU-side when possible
    • PR3717: Add caching of infolabels
    • PR3677: Faster infobool expression evaluation
  3. XBMC: PR3883: bump GUI ABI to 5.0.0 due to recent skin core changes

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).

The site is giving:
500 - Internal server error.

Do you have any alternative download link, or possible waiting some time will solve this Wink
