News - Could Kodi get DRM support?

Ran across an interesting piece on TorrentFreak this morning noting that Kodi was open to working with content owners, including the possibility of of adding support for DRM into the platform. It's an interesting idea, and would definitely make the software more useful for some things. I have to wonder if it would weaken its play in other areas like BD-Lite. What do you think? Is this a step in the right direction, or one too far?

News - Kodi domain seized by ICE

I've been ignoring all the noise about Kodi and piracy that's been circling around the interwebs recently. Because, well, it's just ignorant to think that Kodi has anything to do with illicit video content. I figured that it would play out, and content owners would move on to something a bit more sensible - like blaming your TV, because you can view the illicit content on it. THE HORROR.

Apparently that wasn't the case though, and it seems that Kodi has become a victim to that ignorance. Hopefully this gets sorted out soon, and we can go back to enjoying one of the best FOSS products out there.

News - Kodi app in Microsoft Store

If you've been waiting to get your Kodi on, and can't install the old-school version. There's no an option straight out of the Microsoft Store. Oddly, it's PC only... So Windows Mobile and XBox One are left out. Which at least one of them should find pretty typical.

News - Kodi will get touch friendly "Estuary" skin

As much as I like to look at Confluence, I have to agree that it's kind of a pain to use on my phone. Now it works, which is why I keep Kodi on my mobile, but it would be great to have something a bit more touch friendly for it, and the slate that has become our "2nd TV". That's why it's great to see the upcoming Estuary skin. It retains much of the visual pop, but uses real estate better and has much larger targets. Looking forward to having a play.

News - Kodi Javis 16.1 RC1

Kodi keeps on coming. This time to 16.1; looks like some good fixes - although it's unclear to me if they are fixes for 16 or regresions in pre-RC1 16.1.

News - Kodi 16.0 out of beta

Kodi 16 has been in beta for a while, and working great,  but not everyone is comfortable living on the bleeding edge when it comes to the HTPC Smile. So now's the time to go grab the update. FYI - the Kodi site has been experiencing some issues lately (seems to be back now), so don't be surprised if you need to wait a bit to get the bits.

News - Kodi 16 Beta 1 Released

Kodi has done a fantastic job of never staying still, but release 16 is looking like an especially changeful rev. With DX11, event logging, long press support, and slew of other features. Official betas are generally pretty stable, so I'll be doing the upgrade over the weekend.

News - OpenELEC 6.0 Released

I am a big fan of the embedded OpenELEC version of Kodi. It's a great way to get some extra life out of aging or budget hardware from an easy to install and support platform.

Along side the rev to Kodi 15.2, there are few other notable changes mentioned in the release notes. So make sure to have a quick read.

Go get it.

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 6.0 (6.0.0)

The most visible change is Kodi 15.2 (Isengard). Beginning with Kodi 15.0 most audio encoder, audio decoder, PVR and visualisation addons are no longer pre-bundled into OpenELEC but can be downloaded from the Kodi addon repo if required. PVR backends such as VDR and TVHeadend will install needed dependencies automatically.

News - SiliconDust HDHomeRun LiveTV Now Supported in Kodi (XBMC)

This is some great news for anyone that's ever tried using the HDHomeRun within XBMC (now called Kodi), as there's now an add-on which adds some slick support for your network based tuners. Still no recording functionality for now, but at least it's a step in the right direction. And just in time for the Tourney!

No longer will you be required to muck around with XMLTV files or playlists in order to get your HDHomeRun running.

 

The best feature is the lack of configuration required. As long as you have a functioning HDHomeRun setup, just download the app inside the repo and run it. You will be presented with a beautiful channel listing and associated guide data.
