Open ELEC provides a complete media center software suite that comes with a pre-configured version of Kodi and third-party addons with retro video game console emulators and DVR plugins.
Since 2011, the Open ELEC team usually releases a new major version, following the Kodi release schedule.
Since 2014, specifics builds supporting a set of Graphics/GPU chipsets (ION, Fusion, Intel,...) are deprecated.
For an open-source project like Kodi to compete with the commercial products, it will probably have to simplify the process of finding and setting up add-ons.
Open ELEC 5 brings Kodi closer than ever to being a plug-and-play product, but it is not quite foolproof yet.
It is designed to consume relatively few resources and to boot quickly from flash memory.
The Open ELEC team released Open ELEC 4.0 on , and this version features updated XBMC 13.0 with further updated important parts of the operating system as well as the Linux kernel updated to version 3.14 and additional device drivers.Here's the quick and dirty steps: If it doesn't seem like it's doing anything, don't fret, mine took a couple hours before it started uploading at a rather pathetic pace.I'm at two days so far and only 2GB uploaded (my bandwith is capable of uploading ~40GB per day).All I need is daily and not real time synchronization between Onedrive and the network file server.I tried synchronizing the network files to a local desktop using Sync Toy, but have to do it manually each time.I have been working with Sky Drive (now One Drive), and is trying to use One Drive as my file server.
