Hi -

I have several Kodi machines in the house, most running on Isengard or Jarvis, all using the nextPVR client successfully. Today I upgraded one from Isengard to Jarvis by dropping in the OpenELEC-Generic.x86_64-7.0.1.tar into the Update folder on the machine. On reboot, the upgrade seemed to work perfectly except for the NextPVR client failing to start. This has happened in the past but usually a little fiddling or restarts on either the client or server will fix the problem. But not this time. Nothing so far addresses it - I've tried enabling/disabling, and uninstalling/reinstalling the addon.

NextPVR client add-on reports that it's version 1.12.19.

From my /storage/.kodi/temp/kodi.log:

Any help would be appreciated.

Same here. This morning when reloading NPVR it failed with an error message yet the error log indicates no errors. What gives?
