PVR add-on V1.10.9 Isengard V15 Broken now?

Hi

Last week I upgraded to Kodi Isengard V15 on to my Windows 7 PC. Initially for a few days the DVBLink PVR add-on was still working OK and I could access and play TV channels fine. (DVB-T2 UK Freeview).

However now today Live TV is broken in Kodi, it keeps saying "No PVR Clients Have Been Started Yet" the PVR add-on is still enabled when I check it.

DVBLink Server 4.6.0 Build 9744
DVBLink Connect! Server 4.6.0 Build 9744
DVBLink TVSource 4.6.0 Build 9749

Kodi Log file:

I also have the same problem on my iMAC OSX running Kodi Isengard, again the DVBLink PVR was working initially and now its not, with the same error message appearing in Kodi.

When was version 1.10.9 of the PVR add-on released to the repo?


Thanks

I would say that if it worked, it should continue working if the system has not been changed.
Did you install any updates lately? Kodi updates? Do you have automatic turned on?

Hi

Thank you for your reply.

Yes automatic updates for Kodi add-ons are turned no. It just seems strange both machines were on Kodi v 14 Helix, I then updated them to Kodi V15 Isengard the skin updated and various other Kodi addons updated, I don't specifically recall noticing the the Dvblink pvr add-on was also updated at the time but it may have been.

After the upgrade I could still access the Live TV channel list and the channel update that happens when you launch Kodi was still working OK. Then maybe 3 or 4 days later Live TV just broken on both machines with the issue described above.

Only thing I have done on the Dvblink server recently is scan for new channels. My main HTPCs are still on Openelec Kodi Helix and they can still play live TV fine now, its just the windows and mac I updated to Isengard that have stopped working now

Thanks

You may want to try to update to the nightly build of Kodi 16. Just keep the settings, should be done in a few minutes. Some of the Kodi 15 RCs had issues with the PVR. Kodi 16 doesn't have those issues.

Please beware that the latest hangup fix for dvblink pvr addon when setting a timer has not been yet incorporated into Kodi 16 codeline.

I had an issue setting a timer using Kodi 15 RC 1 or 2. The I decided to try a nightly build of Kodi 16. I think it was of 23-07-2015. I think I have PVR version 1.11.3, but I need to check that. Anyway: No issues in setting the timer anymore.

I have not installed any of the Kodi RC builds, it was the final v15 version etc.

I believe that is either rc1 or rc2. In the beta of 15 everything is still working fine..have that running on another machine.

I seem to have fixed it!

In Kodi Helix there was an option called reset PVR database, it seems this has been changed in Isengard to a option named Clear Data, I then had to close and reopen Kodi, it then did the PVR channel scan and now I have the channels and EPG back. :)

I've just had to do the same thing.

Did you scan for channels before this happened or add/change your channel lineup? I did and I'm wondering if that was the cause as that was the only thing that had changed.

Yes I had also been scanning for new channels at this time as well.
