DVBLink 5.5 on Ubuntu - can't get Kodi PVR 1.10.9 working

PostPosted: Wed Jul 22, 2015 4:22 pm

I upgraded to DVBLink 5.5 packages yesterday, and today I've upgraded Kodi from 14.2 to 15 final. In Kodi, when I enable live TV, I get "Add-on couldn't be loaded", and then "The PVR manager has been enabled without any enabled PVR add-on" so I enable the DVBLink PVR client 1.10.9 and nothing happens. There's no Live TV available. Is there an issue with DVBLink 5.5 and Kodi 15? Any ideas?

I would uninstall add-on and re-add it again. Kodi for Ubuntu comes without addons and it probably uses the old binary.

Hi Oberon, I did an apt-get remove kodi-pvr-dvblink and then reinstalled it, but it's still the same. When I start Kodi, I get "check the log for more information about this message. Add-on couldn't be loaded. An unknown error has occurred. Can't load Dll"

Please check if binary was physically removed

I uninstalled the add-on, removed the file /var/cache/apt/archives/kodi-pvr-dvblink_1.10.9-1~vivid_amd64.deb, and reinstalled the add-on again, but I'm still getting the same error.

Very strange. Seems to me like a broken build process for ubuntu pvr addon. We will double check it on our side and let you know.

Is it Ubuntu 32 or 64 bit that you are running?

I was running x64, but I needed a working system back , so I wiped it and went back to Windows.

Can you please try removing and re-installing kodi-pvr-dvblink?
It might have been fixed lately. At least it loads and works perfectly ok on Ubuntu 14.04 x64 with Kodi 15.0.

Like the OP when I try to enable 'LiveTV' I get can not load DLL error.

Also like the OP it works in ubuntu 14.04...just not Ubuntu 15.04.

I also noticed that Vivid's version of the addon is about 50 KiB smaller than the Trusty version. Why?

Also what is symbol _ZTIN17dvblinkremotehttp10HttpClientE? It is undefined...like it is missing a header file.

Can you please try the attached addon. It is taken from the 14.04 ubuntu x86_64 distribution and should work on 15.04 as well.
Just uninstall any existing pvr.dvblink and install this one from a zip file.

Now I am getting error...basically it is looking for an earlier version of litimyxml2.

Trusty (14.04) uses libtinyxml2-0.0.0

Vivid (15.04) uses libtinyxml2-2 (2.2.0-1)

Below is the error:

Hope this helps.

I don't know if I can install the previous version or not, So didn't try.

Thanks for the help...hope it gets fixed.

Thanks for the update...I see that the nightly got updated.

Will this fix also eventually go into the stable PPA?
