(AE) is a new layer able to handle bit-perfect reproduction of audio, mixing, preloaded sounds, resampling, downmixing, post-processing filters in XBMC.
It's coolest feature is to be able to bitstream HD audio sources from XBMC, including:
- Dolby Digital Plus (DD+)
- Dolby TrueHD
- DTS-HD High Resolution (DTS-HD HR)
- DTS-HD Master Audio (DTS-HD MA)
- FLAC Stereo
- FLAC 5.1
Here you will find XBMC v12 Frodo (AudioEngine) alpha OpenELEC images for the Ultra 2.
You can install
them or manually update
your existing OpenELEC version as with regular images.
Please note that in the manual update tutorial it is said to ignore the MD5 files but if you don't copy them the update procedure will complain they are missing and will abort.
I will issue new images from time to time.
Please note that Frodo is alpha so you may experiment some bugs.
I do not have enough time (or expertise) to offer support on issues you may have.
XBMC Frodo is not compatible with PVR, so don't ask for PVR images.

How to compile an OpenELEC Ultra 2 image yourself
You obviously need a linux station (Ubuntu 12.04 is perfect and you can even run one under windows with VirtualBox). XBMCbuntu installed on the Ultra 2 is ok.
Do not try to compile OpenELEC as root; this will not work!
Follow this wiki page:
How to build your own custom OpenELEC FRODO build using XBMC master branch
Then you can wait for a loooong time!
For instance, a dual core 3GHz Athlon machine takes 4 hours to compile an Ultra image, and more than 9 hours on a Ultra 2
