Hey there, first time poster.

I am running Kodi Jarvis 16.1 on the Firestick, alongside IPVanish as I am living in New Zealand and would like to access the UK iPlayer etc addons. However since installing the IPV, I try to access the player I get the message that it hasn't worked and then Kodi crashes "Home is Currently Unavailable".

Anyone else had this and fixed it?

Thanks Smile

Hello taffylass and welcome,

You seem to be treading along that fine line between ok and banned. It's the "etc" in your post that may sway it to banned.

Kodi does not provide technical support for usage with a VPN. If you access the UK iPlayer without the VPN, does it work?

Maybe provide a debug log. Turn on the Debug Log in Settings, replicate the problem, then post the results to a pastebin type site and link it back here.

Instructions... http://kodi.wiki/view/Log_file/Easy

Also a reminder of the Banned Add-ons... Banned_Add-ons (wiki) which may get your thread sent to the garbage bin if breached.

Thanks blossom24. Phew, none of those add on's are on my viewing list!

Thanks for the heads up, it works fine without the VPN.

Thread moved to off topic.

If things work with the VPN turned off then the issue isn't with Kodi. Ask on a suitable VPN support forum.
