OpenELEC (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140224200730-r17808-gfbf7d43

Based on tip of XBMC master (4542af8, changelog) and tip of OpenELEC master (fbf7d43, changelog) with the following modifications:
  • Includes newclock3 commits (except for 44129f9 which I've replaced with a static spinner)
  • Includes PR4275: Use mmap to accelerate SQLite file accesses
  • Excludes the OpenELEC fernetmenta patches (due to conflict with newclock3)
  • Default setting for "Show RSS Feed" changed to disabled
  • "Total Duration" in Confluence is disabled (see build #0221 for details)
  • ALSA is enabled and any suitable hardware should be available in XBMC Audio Settings
Build Highlights:
  1. OpenELEC: New Kernel 3.13.5
  2. newclock3: New DVDPlayer commits:
    • [omxcodec] Fix stall on seek/trickplay - need to reset start flag
    • [omxcodec] Make sure we have a valid context when video decode starts before first fanart is decoded
  3. PR4275: Use mmap to accelerate SQLite file accesses

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.
