OpenELEC with media_build
Update (13 Nov 2012): Since OpenELEC is now on a recent kernel there’s no point to media_build any more, and I won’t be doing any further builds. Some DVB drivers aren’t enabled, but this is easy to rectify (it didn’t take very long to get CE6230 support mentioned below sorted out).
Update (10 Nov 2012): Since newer kernels were included in OpenELEC at the end of October I’ve not been able to create new releases with media_build. The good news is that it913x DVB adaptors (like mine) now work just fine with regular OpenELEC. The bad news is that various other DVB adaptors (e.g. CE6230) are missing from regular OpenELEC. If I figure out some other way of including missing drivers I’ll create some new builds – but don’t hold your breath.
A lot of people have been having issues with driver support for digital TV devices that can be fixed with the media_build drivers. I’m pleased to announce that I’m now publishing release bundles that include media_build using the same automated mechanism that I put together for regular release bundles and SD card images (NB I have no plans to do SD card images for media_build as it’s relatively trivial to copy a release bundle onto an SD card).
