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 3.2.3 releases on the downloads page. Please ask any questions in our forums!

I use the GPU in the CPU, which is an Intel HD 2500.
Bob deinterlacing in Frodo, Gotham builds also support better interlacing methods.

For live TV I am using the HDHomerun hdhr3-eu, dual DVB-C tuner via ethernet.

The interesting Thing would be GPU - intel? Deinterlacing?
LiveTV? TV Card?
I can't try 3.2 cause my Tevii S471 is broken there :(

OpenELEC (official) Version: 3.2.3
bokito:~ # uptime
09:38:56 up 28 days, 14:12, load average: 0.23, 0.26, 0.30

4 weeks uptime, resume / suspend many times a day. Over a terabyte of network traffic received. Still working like a fresh boot. On the right hardware it doesn't get more stable than this :)

When I try to compile I get an error when trying to install libdrm-2.4.47

I'm using Ubuntu 13.10 which I updated since when I built 3.2.2, has anyone been able to compile this for Fusion using Ubuntu 13.10? Or should I revert back to 13.04?

Hello,
with this last update I lost a functionality I had on the previous version.
I use OpenELEC on RaspberryPi with Berryboot with two images one with Wheeze and one with OpenELEC.
Before version 3.2.3 update I was able to browse (for movies) the Wheeze image folder from root folder using Samba.
Now, after the update I cant do that any more.
I have made a downgrade to 3.0.3 and it worked again.

Is it possible to regain this functionality?

Regards,
chapas

Ha-ha... of course you're right about my release date confusion. Thanks for pointing it out (and avoiding the wholly-deserved "learn to read the calendar" rejoinder :laugh: )

@chewitt
Oh yes, I see your point about building OE from source code (and not "unknown" binaries) - of course this is the only way to ensure the integrity of releases. Guess I didn't think it all the way through.

Thank you both for enlightening me on the issues - and answering my question.

Cheers,
Grant

Point us to a source of redpenguin patches or code and we'll think about including it. Last time I looked I could only find pre-built rtmpdump binaries designed for n00b users to cut/paste into the filesystem. That's not something we're going to support.

Given OpenELEC 3.2.3 was released on the 17th of October it couldn't possibly have a version of librtmp from 22nd of October...

When OE is built most packages are compiled from the most current available, as far as I can see in OpenELEC's git project the version of comes from this repo: git://git.ffmpeg.org/rtmpdump

..once again... a question about librtmp in Intel.x86_64 build

Hi gang - with every new release I hope to get an answer to the same simple question (...for which I don't know how to confirm myself)...

Has librtmp been updated to the latest version (2013-10-22) from RedPenguin ?

Thanks in advance (I'd sure like to pull the hack out of my autostart.sh !)

Great news, but i´m having issues with FLAC files after upgrading to 3.2 (and then 3.2.3). This was not an issue before. The HTPC is connected to a Pioneer SC-LX73 amp. For instance a movie with DTS-HD MA with volume adjusted to -20.0 dB on my AMP is very high volume, however when switching over to a .flac file on my HTPC I can barely hear the song, even though the volume on my AMP is unchanged. I have to go all the down to -2 dB to get some sound. If I then forget to adjust volume before switching back to a movie.. well.. bye bye hearing or Dali loudspeakers :P

I've tested streaming (AirPlay) Spotify content to my atv2 and AirPort Express, all good there. Every gadget I have is connected to my amp with hdmi.

All described here:

Hi,
I'm sorry, but my custom keymap.xml in "Storage/.xbmc/userdata/keymaps" is still igored.
I have modfied it to work with my mce remote and made some modification.
It worked fine with 3.0.6.


Did I miss anything?

I am not sure how it can work for you... I tried a clean install on 2 ZBOX AD11 devices and it wasn't working (Fusion 3.2.3)
You are using the specific Fusion build right?

Yes. Fusion 3.2.3. ZBOX AD13 (I presume that the remotes are the same...).

Is it only me but on Fusion build, I can't get in a movie/TV show "information"? I tried "i" or in context menu; it starts the playback....

I also tried to do a clean fresh install to be sure...

***Generic build is fine...

Could anyone with a Fusion build test this to confirm if it's just me or specific to the build itself?
I would appreciate it... very quick to confirm.

Thanks in advance guys.
