Based on tip of OpenELEC master (a1fff18a, changelog) and tip of XBMC master (8ed51929, changelog) with the following modifications: Build Highlights:
  1. New firmware, with 1080i hardware accelerated de-interlace - many thanks @popcornmix (as usual) and Eben!
    popcornmix Wrote:This is an early attempt to support high quality deinterlace at 1080i resolution (we previously used a simpler "bob" deinterlacer for HD).

    By default the "Auto select" deinterlace method will still choose "bob" for HD video, but you can now change that to "Advanced" and you should get higher quality deinterlace even at HD resolution.

    It does need some overclock. Something like:
    is recommended for now (which will set your warranty bit). We'll get the overclock requirements down in a future build.

    This update is thanks to Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton, who rewrote the VPU deinterlace code to work on the QPUs (3D hardware).
  2. New kernel 4.1.2
  3. Bump to ffmpeg-2.7.1
  4. BCM270x: Switch to firmware driver (enable BCM2835_MBOX, RASPBERRYPI_FIRMWARE and BCM_VCIO kernel options)
  5. Add image scaling algorithm which should allow better quality cached artwork (see post with details how to change current default algorithm)
  6. Introduce image resource addons
  7. Fix for missing text in notifications
  8. Dropped RTL8812AU/8821AU driver alternate abperiasamy repo
