After updating from Frodo 12.2 XBMC to 13.0 the tvheadend will not start. I get the message "can't load dll".
The XBMC logfile is shown:

What is the problem? I also update the tvheadend. The tvheadend itself is working. I can watch tv via the tvheadend webinterface.

Maybe you forgot to update the tvheadend addon? The Frodo version is not compatible with Gotham.
How can I update the addon?
It's usually a package called xbmc-pvr-tvheadend-hts or something.
If I select the addon I have options like enable, disable, configure deinstall but update (aktualisieren) is not selectable (I see the function but it is grey).

For my understanding. I have installed the backend software under ubuntu. I did

sudo apt-get install tvheadend xmbc

Why is it nessessary to install/update another addon in xmbc?

I had the same problem, and you need to update the addons with apt-get, because there are dependencies.

I upgrade all my system with
apt-get upgrade

but if you want to update only the tvheadend addon, you can try
apt-get update xbmc-pvr-tvheadend-hts

@gorschten: just run sudo apt-get install xbmc-pvr-tvheadend-hts, that will get you the latest version.
Now it works.
I did
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
once again (I am wondering because I did it two times) and after restarting xbmc it works.
Thanks a lot!
