Did we mention our new settings addon?

The most visible change in OpenELEC 3.2 is our new settings addon. It’s a huge improvement where changes are effected immediately without needing a reboot, and short descriptions of each and every function to make it easier to comprehend. Thanks to lufie, seo, chewitt and vpeter from the project team, and the many others who helped with developing, translating and testing the addon. We also send a special ‘thank you’ to the connman developers for their patient help and guidance during its creation.

The new addon does not migrate settings from OpenELEC 3.0 or older installs so the first time you boot OpenELEC 3.2 a first-run wizard will ensure you configure essentials like keyboard language, hostname, networking, and startup of SSH and samba services.

NB: OpenELEC is used by people from around the world so the new settings addon needs to be translated into as many languages as possible. If your native language is not currently supported it would be awesome if you can help us out with the words. To contribute a new translation or corrections to an existing one; please use this link to visit the transifex site and get started.

New and dropped builds:

To simplify the number of OpenELEC 3.2 builds available we have discontinuted the ION 32-bit, Intel 32-bit, and ‘Ultra’ builds for Xtreamer users. If you are using one of these builds the correct migration path to follow is:

  • ION i386 (with 32-bit capable hardware) => Generic i386
  • ION i386 (with 64-bit capable hardware) => ION x86_64
  • Intel i386 (with 32-bit capable hardware) => Generic i386
  • Intel i386 (with 64-bit capable hardware) => Intel x86_64
  • Xtreamer Ultra 1 / Xtreamer Ultra 2 => ION x86_64


Starting with OpenELEC 3.2 we have added a Generic 64-bit release as a “catch-all” for recent 64-bit hardware. You can find all OpenELEC 3.2.1 releases on the downloads page. Please ask any questions in our forums!

Had the same problem. Did you by any chance copy the default skin to your storage directory so you could apply some mods? If so, your current skin is missing a required patch, and you may have to copy the new default skin over and re-apply the mods.

Thanks for the tip! No I've never done anything to any xbmc skin. Only thing I know that has done something with skins is the Forum Browser addon, which I recall wanted to install some bits that related to skins. But from where do I copy the new default skin?

Also, network mount section in OE settings is still missing in 3.2.3. Will they ever come back? It worked perfectly I think.

eventlircd: add support for MS-Tech remotes
I would like to express my thanks here for making my MS-Tech remote control work !
I used to help myself with a FLIRC to get the remote to work how I want.
After the update I noticed that navigation with the the remote had changed: e.g. every "right arrow" press resulted in two steps in the menu instead of just one.
After plugging out the FLIRC, I noticed everything worked fine without it - just using the onboard IR Receiver in my MS-TECh MC80 box.
I can even turn on and off the device using the power button on the remote.
GREAT WORK!
Thank You!

Now I have to figure out what else I can do with that FLIRC? ;-)

Had the same issue, can confirm it is fixed for me in 3.2.2.

No Sound in either 3.2.0 and 3.2.1 intel 64bit build.

Reverting to 3.1.7 fixes it. No idea whats wrong, my Amplifier has HDMI lock and devices show perfectly in system >> audio output but I just get no sound at all.

Some logs here

I updated my 2 machines to 3.2.1 and have had to revert both to 3.2.0. The first machine is a Arctic mc001 (running Arctic specific build) and the no sound after turning TV off and on (but leaving the Arctic on) has returned. Downgrading to 3.2.0 solves this. The second machine is a custom built Amd A-series htpc (running x64 generic) featured an 'amd unsupported' (or something along those lines.) watermark on the bottom left of the screen at all times. Again reverting to 3.2.0 resolves this issue.

I'm using OE Fusion build on an HTPC. After update to 3.2 a couple of days ago I experienced some problems (i. e. the well-known remote problem) and downgraded back to 3.1.6. Everything was well again. Today I decided to try 3.2.1 and, behold, all of the old problems seem to be solved. But now I'm facing a much worse one: I'm unable to connect to the system over network, neither via ssh nor via http to TVHeadend, and there is no possibility to start the ssh service from the GUI! :( And because of this I have no chance to change any settings, check anything or downgrade again. What shall I do?

Edit: Today I tested ssh again just for fun and now it works. Also the TVheadend config is available again. The only difference to yesterday is an automatic recording with subsequent suspend.

After reading the various problems some were having with their remote, I was hoping this version would magically fix my remote problem I've had since 3.1.7 - but it didn't.

I have this ir remote I've been using successfully for the last 3 years on all versions of Openelec up to and including 3.1.6.
i.e. working correctly, the left/right keys skip -30/+30 seconds and the rew/ff keys rewind/fast forward x2 etc.

However, from 3.1.7, the left/right keys work as required but the rew/ff just do the same as the left/right keys - i.e. skip -30/+30 seconds and I am unable to rewind or fast forward with any keys.

FYI:
dmesg | paste - http://sprunge.us/ObjS
cat /proc/bus/input/devices | paste - http://sprunge.us/NNSe
lsmod | paste - http://sprunge.us/gjOV

I hope this can be fixed in some future release - if anyone needs any additional info, please let me know.

I apologize, i searched but was unable to find an answer.

Has the issue with connecting to open WiFi been addressed with the 3.2.1 update?

Thank you

Since some versions I can't open OE settings from the sub-menu in home screen. Notthing seems to happen when I click it. But I can open it in Programs menu.

And the section where we could add network mounts seems to be gone in OE settings now?

Hello,

i again have some issues in 3.2.1 which seems to be solved in 3.2.0

My system freezes sporadically on fast forwarding MPEG4.
My system freezes sporadically on switching livetv channels.

(this happens very often.)

I have reopend my Issue Report on GitHub: github.com/OpenELEC/OpenELEC.tv/issues/2477

librtmp in Intel.x86_64 build

...same question as in v3.2.0 Released thread:
Has librtmp been updated to the latest version (2013-09-14) from RedPenguin ? Being a rank noob at this, I don't know how/where to check the builds for myself.

Thanks for confirmation...

I think it's because of the 3.2.1. But i will work on it again, tomorrow.

My bad. Looks there was something wrong with my config file... After I replaced it, it worked fine, really sorry for the wrong alert. :sick:
3.2.1 rocks :whistle:

Does this mean that you are adding files or do you have to remane them (start_x.elf to start.elf )?

Having trouble as well after the update. I am using the genetic amd build for my Richland cpu. I used all updates from 3.1.1 without trouble but this service release hangs after the splash screen.

It seems that the xorg isn't started because I can access via ssh. Restarts didn't help.

Killall -9 xbmc.bin as suggested on the wiki didn't help since xbmc is also not started.

Any ideas or ssh commands I should try?


Update: i tried stating XBMC manually using the init.d script. This is what I get
OpenELEC:/etc/init.d # sh 93_xbmc
93_xbmc: line 69: progress: not found
93_xbmc: line 86: wait_for_dbus: not found

Having a weird issue after I updated.

When I go into a directory to browse files, it used to order alphabetically with folders first, then alphabetically with files next. Now it's sorting alphabetically with both included. Is this an option somewhere? I can't see it. Or is it some weird bug?

(Running Intel X64 on a NUC)

Thanks!

Same for me (running Fusion on ZBOX AD13)

Can someone fix a bug with Holtec IR? All keys work great, but long press for sound up/down - does not! I use this set www.streacom.com/products/irrc/ ... and it will be great to have it working out of the box.

My experience with the latest OE flavour:

- standby broken most of the time without Bluetooth (wakes up immediateiy after standby)
- standby always broken when using Bluetooth (doesn't even go into standby)
- bad video tearing
- TV rewinding not working whatsoever

This is with the Arctic MC001.

I chose Openelec for an appliance/firmware like experience.

Now it turns out I get about the same amount of re-booting, tinkering and browsing the Web for problem solutions as with %$§#* Windows.

Not Good™

System wake up from suspend does not work since updating to 3.2.1 on ZBOX AD06, Fusion-Build. "Abnormal Exit. Exited with code 139" is showing on the screen. Worked fine on 3.2.0. Normal boot will start the sysem without any problem.

Will the "post #10 fix"* be re-released as 3.2.1 for raspberry pi, or do we wait for 3.2.1.1 or something like that?
