Smarthome Blog returns back!

Splash1-600x336

Long time I didn’t post anything. But now Smarthome Blog returns back! And the first post after the break will be about new release candidate 3 of Kodi 14.0 Helix – new name of XBMC project. Main changes of that version are:

  • fix crash during video playback on Android 5 devices such Nexus Player and ADT-1;
  • a few fixes of PVR system included into XBMC since version 12 (Frodo);
  • some fixes for specified OS and GPU

It can be downloaded from here. Just choose desire platform or OS.

In the mean time OpenELEC – IMHO the best Kodi/XBMC based distribution to build HTPC, announced its own release candidate 2 based on Kodi Helix. Personally I prefer OpenELEC for my home PC based media centre and especially for my Raspberry PI HTPC.

New domen for Smart Home Blog

I’d like to announce a new domain name for Smart Home Blog – smart-home-blog.com (thanks to our the best friend Exwebris!). The previous one is also available and you can easily use both.

Russian version of Smart Home Blog now has itself subdomen  Рru.smart-home-blog.com. The previous address is also accessible.
