It looks like OpenELEC has been replaced on NOOBS with LibreELEC.

See more about LibreELEC here https://libreelec.tv/about/

It sounds like some of the developers from OpenELEC have moved to LibreELEC, but both projects are being developed. Other than that I don't know much about the reasoning / politics behind the fork.

If you would rather have OpenELEC then you can download the images from:

No (all OS, apart from Raspbian are downloaded on demand)

Are you sure you used the correct Openelec image? IIRC there are separate images for Pi1 and Pi2/3

Get NOOBS 1.9.2 and it will give you an option to install LibreElec (rather than OpenElec) if you have a network connection when NOOBS boots.

The fact is that the list of NOOBS (or NOOBS lite) products is built dynamically and you can't avoid that. Whatever version of NOOBS you use (1.8.1, 1.9, 1.9.1 or 1.9.2 as long as it boots on the hardware) will have LibreElec, because that's what's available on the server where it downloads that stuff from. The only OS carried on a NOOBS card is Raspbian (and that's the difference between NOOBS & NOOBS lite).

OpenElec can only be installed by getting their image from their website.

OpenELEC, LibreELEC...what is the different for a enduser?
i was using OpenELEC and then i changed to LibreELEC , because NOOBS now offers LibreELEC.
except of the different naming/logo and the newer Kodi version in LibreELEC i can't see any differences.
i don't miss any add-ons.
ok, i am not a hardcore xxxELEC enduser. i only care to have the moste recent version of Kodi running on a minimal OS.
so, any other differences?

i would say, install what you get via NOOBS and don't mess around with handmade installation, if you are not familar with handmade installing procedure.

thanks for the input guys,but i think i got a more serious problem then i thought
went ahead installed librelec,installed ok,on rebooting i saw libreELEC splashscreen
then some text at top left,then screen went blank then blue screen.
rebooted rpi,pressed shift to install osmc,that installed ok then rebooted,got to osmc splashscreen
then it went to blue screen,so im guessing the sd card is at fault,its kingston 16gig sd card
gonna try a sandisk sd card to see if it works

thanks again

It could be a faulty SD card, but you may get similar issues if you don't have enough power. Make sure that you have a decent power supply able to provide at least 1A.

Re: OpenELEC

I have updated PINN 1.9.3 to restore the link to the OpenELEC noobs distribution, so with that you have the choice of installing LibreElec or OpenELEC.
(see viewtopic.php?f=63&t=142574)
Note that this points to the last version of OpenELEC that was uploaded to the RPF servers, so it may not get updated (unless the OpenElec maintainers want to provide an alternative source of noobs images...)
