    64 bit only I'm afraid.


    You don't need to install OE 6.0.3, you can upgrade straight from OE 5.0.8 to LE 6.90.005 (although the usual warnings/caveats/disclaimers apply, which is that when upgrading between major versions - OE or LE - you should normally start with a clean install).

    Official LE releases are based on Kodi 16 which might be the reason you're not seeing Estuary (a Kodi 17 only skin).


    Unofficial LE8/Krypton/Kodi 17 builds are here: Index of /builds/master/


    They're broadly similar to the OE8/Kodi 17 builds I release on the Kodi forum.


    I'm not aware of any CEC change that would explain the change to your key mapping.

    Work is progressing in the wider Raspberry Pi community towards 64-bit support, see this thread. However it might be a lot of work for only a moderate (10-15%) performance improvement.


    As and when 64-bit support is officially available for the Raspberry Pi 3 it will be considered for LibreELEC, but only if it makes sense to do so - a 10% improvement isn't particularly compelling when weighed against the risk of a completely new project and architecture, plus the increased support overhead of an additional RPi3 project.


    Cool and thanks. Will you always add quick updates like this if something is broken and you can add a quick fix? If so then I will definitely stick with this OS.


    When something is broken we'll obviously fix the source code as soon as possible, however whether that triggers a binary release depends on the severity of the problem, and whether there's any workarounds/temporary fixes.


    In this case we're about to produce another Alpha before heading into Beta, so it makes sense to get this in ASAP. However once we've got official releases out, not every bug fix will result in an immediate release (unless we're doing a spectacularly bad job at testing!) as we will instead batch fixes for the next patch release, the frequency of which will be determined by the size of the fix list/severity of the bugs etc., but you shouldn't be kept waiting too long.


    In the meantime if you run the following commands on your 6.90.004 system you should find you have working Bluetooth (if not, please post again):

    Code
    1. mount -o remount,rw /flash
    2. (cd /flash && wget -q http://milhouse.libreelec.tv/other/firmware_bt_fix.tar.gz -O - | tar xvzf -)
    3. sync && mount -o remount,ro /flash
    4. reboot


    After running the above commands, you should have March 24 firmware:

    Code
    1. LibreELEC:~ # vcgencmd version
    2. Mar 24 2016 12:49:34
    3. Copyright (c) 2012 Broadcom
    4. version e16cd015026a8bda22bb50dc30b30ce07f52a202 (clean) (release)

    OK, 6.90.004 is using firmware from March 15 which predates the kernel changes - basically, firmware and kernel are out of sync, which is breaking Bluetooth (actually, the UART). Will get the firmware updated now, in time for 6.90.005 in a day or so. Thanks for reporting.


    anyone know if silverlight can be added ?


    Don't hold your breath for Silverlight, which doesn't have much of a future on any platform - not even Windows.


    Why do you want Silverlight anyway - for Sky Go?


    Thanks to the architectural improvements in Kodi 17, work is progressing towards a native Sky Go solution that doesn't require a browser. Netflix too should be possible. Amazon Prime is already working with Kodi 17 and OE/LE test builds.


    As more progress is made you'll see it first in LE test builds.


    Hmm, in the posts above updates are the question - but I want to install a komplete new PC with empty drive.
    So follow the posts above the only way is install OE with a IMG and crossgrade to LE using the TAR or using the Millhouse IMG of LE but no direct install?!


    Use the milhouse LE .img file to create your clean LE install.


    Unlike OE .img.gz files, the LE .img.gz files can be used for both clean installs (write/dd the .img file to the disk or SD card) and upgrades (drop the new .img.gz file in the Update folder and reboot).

    Hi Mark. Yes, should work.
