Are there any material differences between the openelec builds and the ppa install?

My main motivation was to use the mythtv pvr plugin which has not been available in the past couple of openelec builds.

This guide has been working nearly perfectly for me with the mythtv pvr plugin *until* the last few builds.

At which point the pvr API changed from 4.1.0 to 4.2.0 and the kodi-pvr-mythtv addon promptly stopped working.

I have not had much luck in building the pvr plugin from source, so I am waiting for the xbmc-fernetmenta-master PPA to update the kodi-pvr-mythtv plugin.

The only issues I had was with add skipping.

It would either not work at all, or skip the advertisements perfectly and start stuttering non-stop afterwards, forcing me to seek backwards for a bit until the video starts working again.
