Dolby Digital over HDMI for OpenELEC on Nvidia ION

I've been using OpenELEC on my living room PC recently as it is very fast booting and lightweight compared to XBMCBuntu and easy to configure and use.  However, a small fix is still required to get Dolby Digital audio to work over HDMI, so I have updated my article to include this.

Now Powered by Jekyll

I've just switched this site from running on my own PHP scripts to being generated by the excellent Jekyll. I've previously tried WordPress and Drupal but found them to be quite 'heavy' and involve a lot of setting up to fit this site but Jekyll is lightweight and suits me very well.

As a consequence of the update, I may have inadvertently broken a few things - please let me know if you notice anything...

The Return of Radio Downloader

I've just released version 0.28 of Radio Downloader. Unfortunately, the main change in this release is the removal of the BBC Provider but there are also a couple of small bug fixes.

I have also taken the opportunity to move the source code from a Subversion repository on my desktop to a git repository on GitHub to make it easier to contribute. My plan is to also move the bugs from Bugzilla to use the GitHub issue tracker (if feasable), so please bear with me while I make these changes.

Radio Downloader and BBC Radio

Following a request from the BBC, I have removed the Radio Downloader source and installers. They will return shortly minus the BBC Radio Provider plugin (e.g. the ability to download BBC Radio programmes).

My apologies for the disappointment that this will cause but I hope that you will understand. I believe that the BBC is planning to offer downloads of radio programmes from 2014.

On a personal note, I would like to thank everyone for their words of encouragement and support over the years and for putting up with my sporadic updates. I had hoped to do more to Radio Downloader over the last six months but unfortunately I have not been well and life seems to have been rather hectic...

Radio Downloader 0.26.2

I have just released version 0.26.2 of Radio Downloader. This minor update fixes the layout of the BBC Radio Find Programme A-Z pages as well as a small number of other common crashes and reported issues with the previous version.

For full details of the changes in this release, please see the changelog.
