Updating media center

Recently I found that no programs were scheduled for recording on my Media PC.

This is pretty much unheard of in my household so this started ringing some alarm bells.

I found an existing discussion on this topic at https://connect.microsoft.com/site1145/Feedback/Details/1573972.

From discussions on this thread and recommendations from ewtaylo1 (huge thanks!

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.

Open ELEC is an extremely small and very fast-booting Linux based distribution, primarily designed to boot from flash memory card such as Compact Flash or a solid-state drive, similar to that of the XBMCbuntu (formerly XBMC Live) distribution but specifically targeted to a minimum set-top box hardware setup based on an ARM So Cs or Intel x86 processor and graphics.

And since version 6, x86 builds are deprecated too.

UPDATE: 7/30/2015: If the instructions above do not work for you, see the comments from Marcus and Willow below for a second approach which is reporting success.

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.

On 5 February 2013, Open ELEC announced that they had jointly developed, with Arctic, a manufacturer of computer cooling systems based in Switzerland, a passively cooled entertainment system – the MC001 media centre, based on the Kodi 12 (Open ELEC 3.0) platform.
