XBMC has released today the long waited XBMC 12 “Frodo”. It has support for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, Android, Raspberry Pi, Apple TV and Apple iOS.I’ve already compiled it from Raspberry Pi (NOT OFFICIAL links below).

I’ve updated to OpenELEC r12055 and noticed two things:
- 1080p is now an upscale from 720p;
- Subtitles aren’t appearing in 720p or 1080p.
I personally prefer to use 720p as the image quality is better, in the menus.
To fix the subtitles issue change to 720p, play a video and then pause it. Go to Settings->System->Video->Video Calibration . You’ll notice although you’re on 720p it will say 1920×1080. Correct the subtitle position and it’s done.
As a more simpler fix you can adjust subtitles position to Bottom of video.
As many said, my previous post about OpenELEC RPi PVR wasn’t a real PVR support but DVB drivers and kernel support. Recently PVR and RPi sub-projects were merged into XBMC master branch, thanks to Lars Op den Kamp and Edgar Huceke and many others. Here it’s how and what you need to have it working (you need to have network connectivity).
