Well we may be back to Kodi from SPMC soon or we could be using Linux or Windows with openelec even. Things are in the wings for all RK3288 players like the OHC.

RE: Can OpenELEC run on Open Hour?
Theoretically OpenELEC could run on the OHC, but it does require that RockChip releases drivers for all their hardware components that are compatible with whatever Linux kernel OpenELEC uses.

Since that seems very unlikely at the moment, my guess is that OpenELEC on the OHC will never happen, despite the claims that Cloud Media makes about the Open OS abilities of the OHC.

Without support from RockChip on the driver front, any project that aims to get a specific OS running on the OHC is doomed to fail.

I mean that seems to be reason that the Lubuntu port has stalled: no driver support.

It could like you say as it runs on lower powered arm devices, however we will only see it via running linux or windows and running it within those os's. There's linux drivers for hardware acceleration out there now and linux distros with it in for the rk3288 available now over at freaktab.
