It's because of my overscan settings.
Code:
#  1080p
  overscan_left=39
  overscan_right=39
  overscan_top=23
  overscan_bottom=24

Shouldn't I be able to use this anymore? I thought this method was better to use instead of the videocalibration tool inside kodi.

Actually I think you'll find "overscan_scale=1" is the critical setting.
Without overscan_scale, the other overscan settings will have no effect to kodi.

But, no. You should not be using any overscan settings in config.txt with kodi.

For best quality fix the problem on the TV. Check the display menu options and disable overscan (it may be called "just scan", "screen fit", "HD size", "full pixel", "unscaled", "dot by dot", "native" or "1:1").
If you can't do that then use the kodi calibration settings. That will result in a resize by the TV which will make the image less sharp.
Using overscan_scale will result in a resize by the Pi, followed by a resize by the TV resulting in an even less sharp image.

I'll try to discover why the overscan_scale stopped working.

Oh yeah I know about this and normally I'm using it. But for some reason I had to do this workaround in the past to make all my connected stuff work without problem. (I have a receiver with only one hdmi to the tv)
Back in the past when I calibrated through xbmc the video menu was cut off if I remember right.

Edit: FYI you said that overscan settings didn't work. They actually worked because my screen was the same as before just that things went crazy during/after a movie was played.

Thanks for explaining!

There were no related changes there. #0501 did have some firmware related display changes so seems more likely.

Yes I'm 100% sure. With that config.txt I had before the issue was reproducible when jumping between #0429 and #0430

This is exactly how I found the first build.
#0105 =good > #0202 =good > #0401 =good > #0501 =bad > #0430 =bad > #0429 =good

Not really sure which addon is responsible for that error - could be script.module.requests, or could be pvr.iptvsimple. I'd suggest opening an issue on the pvr.iptvsimple github and take direction from the pvr.iptvsimple maintainer.

Thanks.

Can you describe how this drive is connected to your RPi - is it connected directly, or via a powered USB hub? Does the drive (or hub) have it's own power?

I can see from the log that the 1TB HDD is spinning up, but then it disappears, which might suggest insufficient power.

You also have a MediaTek MT1887 optical disc drive attached, does the HDD work better when the optical drive is not connected?

The RPi can only supply a maximum of 1.2Amps to the USB ports, so if you need more than that then you'll need to ensure your connected devices are self-powered and not using power from the RPi.

OK. Sorry, I've no idea. Please contact the iptvsimple guys.

It's connected through WD PiDrive Cable, so it has enough energy. https://www.wdc.com/de-de/products/wdlab...cable.html

It makes no difference if I connect it directly with the RPI or if the optical disc drive is connected.
On Libreelec 8 it works without problems.

Great, then can you identify when it stopped working by testing older builds?

Well there is a problem here otherwise i won't report it here with debug logs.
I don't use the tvheadend server addon on my pi, i have a seperate tvh server
I only update with #809 and live tv is not working properly anymore.

EDIT:

When i enabled only omx in videoplayer settings i have picture and audio
When i only enabled mmal no picture only audio.
And when enable both i have picture and audio.
