Hello,

after upgrading to Kodi 15 i am getting the following error:
Quote:17:55:35 T:2675194688 ERROR: ADDON: Could not locate pvr.hts.so
17:55:35 T:2675194688 WARNING: UpdateAndInitialiseClients - failed to create add-on Tvheadend HTSP Client, status = 6
17:55:35 T:2675194688 WARNING: UpdateAndInitialiseClients - failed to load the dll for add-on Tvheadend HTSP Client, disabling it

when i am looking in /usr/lib/kodi/addons/pvr.hts there is the follwing:
Code:
[[email protected] pvr.hts]$ ls -l
insgesamt 552
-rw-r-xr-x 1 root root 277152 01.01.2015 22:15 Kodi_Tvheadend.pvr*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     15 29.07.2015 17:50 pvr.hts.so -> pvr.hts.so.15.0*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     17 29.07.2015 17:50 pvr.hts.so.15.0 -> pvr.hts.so.2.1.17*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 277148 29.07.2015 17:50 pvr.hts.so.2.1.17*

I have installed the pvr.hts addon in version 2.2.5.

Do i need to change some paths or copy the pvr.hts.so file to another place?

thank you in advance!
Solved it by myself by copying the .so file to the addon directory in the kodi dir:

Code:
cp /usr/lib/kodi/addons/pvr.hts/pvr.hts.so /home/myxor/.kodi/addons/pvr.hts/
Since it's a system addon there shouldn't be a pvr.hts directory in .kodi/addons, but since you have it Kodi tries to find the .so there and fails.
